I have seen a lot of people wearing compression sleeves lately. From other runners, kids in youth sports, professional athletes, and fans. At first I thought these were just for looks or warmth, but they have some great health benefits too. Compression arm sleeves help with circulation, skin protection, temperature regulation, and recovery.
SLEEFS designs and produces custom compression gear. They have everything from arm and leg sleeves to headbands, bandanas, t-shirts and jerseys. They recently asked me, my husband, and kids to try their compression sleeves. My son has been wanting some for a while, so he was super excited to get to pick out some sleeves.
According to the package, SLEEFS arm sleeves are antibacterial, quick dry, UPF 50+, and rip/tear resistant. I was looking forward to giving these a try.
We went to the SLEEFS website and spent quite a lot of time checking out all of the fun options. There are sleeves with themes such as sports teams, athletic, artsy, cute, support/awareness (breast cancer awareness), and more. I chose the S/M Tactical Sleefs Savage Arm Sleeve. My husband got the large Baseball White and Gray arm sleeves and my kids got Youth Nebula Arm Sleeve and XS Digital camo baseball lace pink.
When the package came in the mail, my son immediately opened it and put on his pink camo baseball sleeves. He wore them to the sports birthday party he went to later that day.
All of us really liked the designs on our sleeves.
Although it hasn’t gotten cold yet, I can see myself wearing these sleeves on runs to keep warm and get sun protection.
The sizing runs a little small. If you plan on wearing these sleeves for sun protection and/or warmth I suggest going up a size. I’m 5 ft 7 inches 140 lbs. The S/M size were a little too tight around my biceps.
