Designed for high intensity activities where you might be in the sun for prolonged periods. These sleeves protect you from the sun, keep your skin cool and are still really comfortable.
Outdoor Research says: ActiveIce fabric technology uses xylitol crystals to actually cool you as the fabric wicks away sweat. This collection is a must-have for paddlers, trail runners, hot weather backpackers, fisherman, cyclists, and everyone else who spends serious time in warm, dry, sun-baked environments.
Outdoor Research's ActiveIce Sun Sleeves provide comfort and protection. As a cyclist who has suffered in the sun in the past these are a great item. Aside from providing UPF 50+ protection from the sun, they are made from breathable, high wicking stretchy material perfect for high intensity activities in the sun.
The sleeves have a few extra features such as a thumb hole and finger loop to keep them from riding up or twisting and becoming uncomfortable. Depending on your activity you may choose to use all or none of these as I found the finger loop dug in when cycling but both worked well when fell running. The top of the sleeves have a thin band of material that provides grip to stop them slipping down your arms, even when sweating.
