glad I ran across this thread. I ordered a pair from Amazon after my recent run in with bee stings. Probably wont  have any deterrent  on bees, but should help against sun damage. I also have skin problems (Psoriasis?) not sure what to call it, just itchy scaly skin. I don't think these are compression sleeves, but maybe one could wear a compression sleeve on top of one of them?

not sold on the copper fit thing though.

Because it's an absolute scam? ;-)

I think if I were to do this I would just wear my long sleeve fishing shirts under my golf shirt.  They are very breathable and do an amazing job of protecting against the sun.  I like the AFTCO brand shirts.

I sometimes play in those Columbia fishing shirts.  They are pretty good for hot weather.

Just for the halibut...I ordered a pair of the Elixir sleeves. they feel great. Now I know why women (and some men?) wear hosiery. Might help with muscle fatigue, but I would imagine is in effect a placebo.

Looking for an alternative to greasy sun block.  Anyone using UV arm sleeves, and if so any brand recommendations?

South Korean players often wear long pants and sleeves

Could be. My old boss was a woman from China and she wore those sleeves when golfing.

It's cultural there. Tans were for the working class who worked outside, or something like that. There's a reason Geishas wear white makeup. I think they feel pale = beauty.

Definitely going to try out some UV sleeves.  Any recommendations on brand, quality, sizes, etc.

I don't have problems with the sun but IMHO, you would be way better off with sun blocking clothes than slathering sun screen all over. Who knows what all the chemicals in that stuff could cause down the road.

My buddy has had a couple of small encounters with skin cancer. So, he needs to apply a prescription sunscreen before we go out to play. His complaint is that it doesn't allow his skin to breathe. He suffers the whole round on a hot day.

Well, he bought me a "Loop Card", a card that gives you discounts at some local golf courses. So, I bought him a couple of canisters of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen at 100 SPF. It's supposed to be very light feeling, and I bought the spray, which he seems to prefer.

We're supposed to play Thursday, which will be when I give them to him, and may not be a sunny day. Alberto VO5 is headed our way. So it may not be a true test. We'll see what happens.

@iacas Have you tried those sleeves you linked? I’ve been getting burnt at work even with sunscreen, cause sometimes a few hours go by and I forget to reapply. For $10 if they’re good I’ll snag a few pairs.
