Comments about R-Gear Smart Sleeves Handwear:

I bought these in all colors except black.The aqua blue sleeves are slightly shorter in length than the pink or yellow ones. I was a little surprised to see that they're more of a knit material, as opposed to a synthetic wicking type. As a result, they don't dry super fast once they become sweat dampened. But,considering the reasonable price, I don't complain. The 'one size fits all' description seems inaccurate. I have small-to-average sized upper arms, and I have to struggle to pull them all the way up. Unless they stretch out considerably, someone with larger arms may find them to be quite constricting. Other than that, they're a good value. I love their convenience. They're perfect for those days that start out too chilly to go completely sleeveless, but I know will quickly grow too warm for a jacket or even the lightest long sleeve tee. When the mercury starts to climb, I just roll them down, slip them off and tuck them into the waist belt of my running pack.

      Comments about R-Gear Smart Sleeves Handwear:

      Product seems really nice and comfortable... problem is unless you weigh about 100lbs and make it your sole life goal not to have any arm muscles whatsoever, these will not fit you. There is absolutely no elasticity to the sleeves whatsoever. For really tiny people, I'm betting you'll really love them. For the rest of us, we're patiently waiting a larger size option.

      Love to wear sleeves underneath light jacket when cold, take off as get warmer. Add back when cool for added warmth.
      Wear on cooler spring summer mornings...take off as warm up. Can always take off, can't added if ya don't take it with you..

        I have been using them on my cooler runs here in MN. I like to wear t-shirts as long as I can and these allow me to do so longer. They are a little difficult to get on, but stay in place and are not restrictive at all.

          Bought these to use in an upcoming race. The fabric does not have much stretch, making them difficult to put on. I'm a woman (5'2 130#) with some arm muscle. While I can get them on, it's a bit of a struggle. May use them for training runs, but in a race, I'd rather have something easier to use.

            These are so comfortable! I was concerned that they would be restricting and tight but these are great. Snug enough to stay put but not to the point that they feel like compression. What a great way to wear short sleeves or go sleeveless but keep arms warm at the beginning of a training run or the starting line! The color selection ad price will make you want more than one pair! :)

            I have about average size arms for an athlete and wear a medium or small in most shirts, but these were uncomfortably tight and restricting. Great color, but not enough stretch. Would probably work well for someone with really skinny arms, but that's about it.

                For early morning or late night runs when it is really chilly out (mid 50's and below for those of us in California), these are perfect! They are warm and wick moisture nicely. If the weather warms up, I can pull them down around my wrists. The upper arm felt a bit tight at first, but I didn't notice it at all during my run.

                              I start my runs cold and HATE tying long-sleeve shirts/jackets around my waist. Once I'm warmed up, I can slide these off and tie them around the belt that holds my iPhone. Easy and efficient. I'm getting two more sets. I love, love, love them!

                                I am a runner with toned arms. These stay in place for the whole run. No sliding down here!

                                  These are exactly what I was looking for for use on my cold windy day runs in Texas. I wear them with layered tanks and they keep me warm without my armpits getting hot. They have feel of a sock on your arm versus the arm warmers which feel ore like a tech shirt. They are OSFA, so if you have bigger arms these may not work for you.

                                    These sleeves are perfect for running in cooler fall temperatures. I also like that I can wear them to add a layer without bulk. They are warm, fit well, and stay in place.

                                        I bought these to wear to a marathon when the forecast looked colder than anticipated. I thought I'd wear them for a few miles, but kept them on til 23. They were breathable, comfortable, and inexpensive. I have slenderish arms and was worried about 1 size fitting most but they are stretchy enough that it didn't matter.

                                          I live in the desert so these are great for the chilly mornings before the sun comes up. I have large arms and these fit well, snug enough not to slip but not uncomfortably tight.

                                            In addition to helping keep my arms warm during an outdoor run, I also use them on those cold mornings-hot afternoon days. Saves me from having to carry a jacket or coat in the hot afternoons during my walk to the car after work.
