My wife bought me a pair for Xmas in 2016 and I've got to say I'm more than impressed. These things are light and comfortable, but most surprising is that they actually seem cooler than nothing at all! And there's none of the unpleasantness that comes with using lots of sunscreen throughout the day I'd have to say I'm an advocate, and I have no hesitation in recommending these to anyone.
I've always had trouble with any other brand of Sun sleeves, always too loose and falling down because they are always unisex sizing and don't cater for small female arms. Your sizing caters for everyone, and when I received mine promptly in the mail I was instantly impressed with the quality, fit and comfort. Definitely a repeat customer here. Thank you.
Not only do these SParms look good, they also stood up to dirt, sun and 80 kilometers of gravel grinding on a mountain bike in 30 plus degree heat. This was their first outing. They were surprisingly cool, my arms stayed protected and all the grime collected along the way came out in the wash. I bravely chose the white ones. The length designed for longer limbs is perfect for my frame and of course the sparkling crystal bling is a must.
I have both the original sleeves and the shawl. The shawl is my favorite - comfortable to wear, looks just like wearing a long sleeve top, no skin on top arm exposed, no need to readjust sleeves while wearing. It really is cooling too. I always receive compliments when I wear and further surprise when I easily take it off. Going to order another color.
I have been an outdoor person all of my life (>60). My skin was always hammered until the time of reckoning when the skin damage came home to roost. I always were hat, long sleeves...etc. Sun sleeves are now part of my normal out door attire. I buy quality local when i can including visors, sun sleeves etc. Australian quality sun protection products eg. Hamilton sunscreen; SPARMS are always preferred because they work and the revenue stays here in Oz.
These are particularly good under my sleeveless golf shirts but can be worm under any top. Comfortable and cool and takes less time to put on than the original sleeves. I bought the crystal logo which adds a more feminine touch. Would be great if there were more colors/patterns to choose from. I highly recommend these.
Amazing fabric, fits perfectly and so comfortable to wear - very impressed and would love to get one in each colour.
These sleeves are the best! No more sun damaged hands or forearms when driving 😃 They are so comfortable to wear & easy to slip off & pop into my handbag when shopping. I love, love, love them !
I have tried many types of sun protection sleeves whilst cycling. I have used these for over 12 months now and they have provided great sun protection without being too hot. You don’t really know you have them on as they are super light but effective. I would recommend these to anyone who requires their arms to be protected against the harsh Australian sun.
If you want to lessen your chances of cancer, then SParms are the answer. No more rubbing cream into your skin. No more reapplying because it’s worn thin. Just pull on these sleeves and you’re on your way. Not having to worry, and able to enjoy your day! I first tried these on a 3 week bike ride. The hot sun beating down on me, and I didn’t have to hide. They didn’t restrict me or make me feel hot, I would totally buy these, rather than not.
I bought a couple of pairs to use with T shirts as hard to find long sleeved tops. Very promptly my 2 children husband and mother in law bought some too. We love them for Kayaking, bushwalking and life.
I liked the Sparm sleeves but found they either hurt under arm or crept down but the shawl was wonderful for golf. No movement at all. My arms are protected from the sun completely. Could do with 1 right hand glove as I wear my leather golf glove on the right hand.
As someone who is quite concerned about the effects of UV damage ( bad family history in this regard!) I have been delighted to find Sparms. I have been wearing the Shawl Sparms on the golf course for the last 5 months or so and absolutely love them. The shawl across the shoulders is so comfortable and there is no chance of the sleeves slipping down. They are nice and cool to wear and they wash and dry easily . The best thing is that I don’t have to lather up with sunscreen before and then again during a round of golf. The best thing I’ve bought in a long time !!!
I purchased 3 pairs of the SP Arms last year and wore them in several Professional Golf events to help protect my arms from the UV Rays. I found that the SP Arm material was very durable and easy to clean. For anyone that is looking for a quality arm sleeve, I would highly recommend this product. Make sure to look at the size chart when purchasing because they do run a little tight at the top part of your arm. I have worn several arm sleeves from different brands in the past and they always became discolored (faded) or the material became weak over time. I have been very satisfied with the SP Arms and it's protection against the UV rays. I recommend these arm sleeves to anyone that plays golf or takes put in any outdoor activities.
My SP arms are so light, cool and comfortable. The Shawl design makes them fit perfectly. With no gaps for the sun to burn your skin. All my friends want some. Well Done SP arms.
The minute I put these on my arms immediately felt cooler even when I went out into the sun. Knowing I was Sunsafe allowed me to be calm and focused through my shot and confident to be in the sun for hours of outdoor Archery all the way up here in Far North Queensland. Thank you SPARMS
Brought a pair of these last year for cycling. They work great in the hot NQ sun. I also now wear them running too.
As a fairer skinned person and keen golfer living in sunny Queensland I needed something to keep the sun off while still being comfortable and cool to play in. Sparms are a great product and I wear them several times a week. They are actually cooler to wear than having nothing on your arms.
These sleeves are fantastic, really comfortable and don’t slip down like separate sleeves.
I ride a road bicycle up to 200km a week. The shawl style work better then traditional UV arm sleeves because they tend to ride down or feel tight on the upper arm. They stop my arms getting burnt, easy to rinse to wear the next day. Highly recommend them.
I am now on my 3rd sleeve and I only wish I had them 60 years ago. As a golfer with a handicap that requires a lot of swinging they fit well, are comfortable and absorb the perspiration without it been obvious. Great Fit and last for a long time.
I love the fit and comfort of the Sparms while playing golf. I purchased a plain logo and sparkle logo Sparms. They both are great and breathe in the heat of the sun!!
As a lawn bowler I spend a lot of time in the sun. These sleeves give me the protection I need, including the back of hands. Cheaper brands never fit properly and always end up baggy. Just love this Aussie company.
I tried many different brands of sun protection sleeves and decided they were all uncomfortable. Then I discovered SParms. They are very comfortable and effective too. No more sunburnt arms and their cooling effect is amazing. I find myself in the clubhouse after my round of golf still wearing them because I have forgotten I still have them on. I have recommended them to friends who complain that the ones they have tried are uncomfortable. They are also very durable, standing up to being washed in the washing machine after every use, maintaining their shape and elasticity.
I play lawn bowls and sunburnt arms were always a problem, since purchasing my sparms 6 months ago, no more sunburn. they are so comfortable and cool you forget you are wearing them.
I bought this a couple of months ago and used it in my weekend tennis with friends. The fit is perfect and cool to the skin. I recommended sparms to my tennis buddies. Great product!!
My mom has tried sleeves but didn’t like how they constantly slide down so when a friend of hers came back from Australia with the shawl sleeve she asked for two for Christmas. They are perfect because she can no wear her short sleeve golf shirts again. Excellent customer service as well.
I have tried other suppliers but none are as good as SParms. They look good, are comfortable, effective and allow me to swing my golf club freely. I have no hesitation in recommending this product.
I have purchased various sun protection products over the years, but always found the sleeves would slip down at the most inappropriate time, either halfway through my backswing when playing golf, or 500m from home when I was competing in rowing regattas. Whilst watching the ladies overseas golf tournaments I noticed they were wearing spams and didn’t seem to be inconvenienced in anyway and coping with the heat as well. I purchased 3 pairs recently one pair for my husband and two for myself.We couldn’t be happier they are brilliant both in the hot and the cold. And when it is really hot I just pop my arms in the water and the spams act like an air conditioner,
I work outdoors so my wife bought me a pair of SParms, at the beginning I was like "too uncomfortable, too hot, etc", anyway I gave it a go and now I'm so happy with them. The quality after few months of everyday use is very good and now my workmates are asking about them.
I was impressed with the speed of the ordering process plus a Thank you email for placing the order. When the sleeves arrived I thought I’d ordered a wrong size........small but once I got them on they were excellent.. The extra long version covered that gap near my wrists and they stayed in place the whole game.....Golf. Plus, they were actually cooler than the other brand I’d bought. Well done Sparms!
I struggled to find a cycling brand of sunsleeves that fit properly. Most were unisex and didn’t have sizes small enough for me, so I widened my search and found SParms! I am extremely happy with this product. They are cool in the breeze and keep me protected for long days on the bike. I would highly recommend this product.
After much searching online I purchased a pair of white extra long sparms in extra small for protection playing tennis. They are very comfortable, well made and keep the sunspots away. They stay up well and I no longer need to apply sticky sunscreen on my arms. People often ask me if my arms get hot but they don’t. I also wear them when gardening. It would be great if you could buy them in different patterned fabric too. Shame you can’t get them for legs as I would try them out!
Excellent for outdoor use. I use them every time I play golf. Great cover; do not slip and they save me using sun screen. I am happy to recommend them to all golfers.
I purchased these SParms for my mother she suffers from Lupus, she is allergic to the sun and comes out in blisters. We were in search of that miracle that would relieve her symptoms and SParms was that miracle! She wears them everytime she needs to go out in the sun and her arms have cleared. Thanks SParms!
I own several pair of black sparms. I wear them daily while I am out training on my bike and I also run in them. They protect from the sun, fit like a second skin and are cool and comfortable to wear. They are a great investment.
We have two very fair skinned girls who ride their bikes to and from school. These are great for keeping the sun off their arms on sunny days. They don't have to put greasy sunscreen on before class or carry sunscreen with them and put it on before they ride home. They are extremely practical as they can just take them off before they go into class and they pack up small in their school bags.
I bought these while visiting Australia in January and just love them! They are so comfortable & the quality is great so I have ordered more. Thank you Australia for another wonderful product!
