I use them.  I have a condition (chronic graft vs. host disease "GVHD") that requires me to avoid contact with the sun.  They are detached but not like long sleeves.  More like tights for your arms.  

Check this site out.   We have bought some sun shirts and they are pretty good Solumbra

I went to a dermatologist this year just to be safe and they took a pre-cancerous biopsy from my right shoulder.   The cost wasn't too expensive but it gave me peace of mind to know that at least curr

I always wear sunscreen, usually 50 spf. If I didn't't sweat so much, I would consider wearing long sleeves more often.

I'm basically in this boat too. I will say though, a big issue of compression shirts for me is that they don't stay tucked into my pants, so a few holes in I'm basically wearing a bra. Sunsleeves would fix that issue, but I like wearing an undershirt, and they don't fix that issue.

I wear plenty of 50 spf, even when I'm just hitting the range.  I sweat... selectively.  I have to take off my glove regularly, for instance, but my shirt isn't soaked after a round.

I don't have issues with the sun, but I wear the Nike sleeves not attached to the shirt.  It actually keeps me pretty cool during my round in the New Mexico heat.

Today was a good day for me at Roger Dunn.  I hit some irons I'd been thinking about for a while (and I have some thoughts about my set for a post when I get my thoughts together), got a new glove ...

 

... and got a set of UV sleeves.  I'm going to wear them tomorrow and see how it goes. Some of you know how long it takes me from "maybe I'll do this" to doing it, even after I'm convinced to do it.  So this is pretty good.

I don't sweat much, but I'm tempted to buy a set of sleeves to see how they work. What's the recommended one to buy? I don't care if it's a brand or an off brand, I'd want to try out a good pair to give myself the best chance of liking them.

Especially if they're on Amazon Prime.

@iacas I'll check back tomorrow evening and let you know how I feel about the ones I got.  I picked up Nike solar sleeves.  Playing tomorrow morning, plans post-round, will check back in tomorrow night with initial impression.

@Shindig  I look forward to your review as well, easily something I would pick up as well as I love going out for several rounds a day if possible and the sun can get pretty powerful out here...

For @iacas and @amished and anyone else interested.

Today was my first round with the sleeves.  I mostly didn't realize I was wearing them.  I did put sunscreen on my left arm this morning (force of habit) before putting on the sleeve, and I don't think that hurt anything.  I didn't notice a difference with my right, which didn't have sunscreen.

A few times during the round the part near my shoulder felt like it was slipping a bit, but not during a swing.  I pulled up my shirt sleeve, pulled up the Nike sleeve, and there I had it.  I wonder how long these go before they need a wash.  But I'm thinking of getting a second pair too.  Maybe a different color.

I like them a LOT better than wearing actual long sleeves.

I'm not sure they will fix @jamo's listed problem though... but I'm mildly obsessive about keeping my shirt tucked in.

Wash them just as frequently as you wash a shirt. That's one day of wearing them for me. I line dry mine as the dryer seems to mess them up a bit. 

I have about 6 pairs of the sleeves. The quality varies from good to crappy, get good (i.e. expensive) ones.

I started wearing sleeves last year. Live near Atlanta and with summer heat and humidity felt like sunscreen wasn't lasting long before I had sweated it all away. Sleeves add some evaporative cooling as well. Have three pairs now so always have a clean set to wear. 

I have a wide brim hat but don't really like wearing it. Make sure I put lots of SPF 50 sunscreen on before my round .  I need to put more on at the turn but somehow always seem to forget.

Dunno.  I bought mine at the Roger Dunn for $20.

Thanks.  Is $20 an expensive or inexpensive pair?

That's expesive.  I was going to mention aqua-x as the sleeves I like that are a bargain (though kind of small, for skinny arms like mine).  But, I can no longer find them on Amazon

Thanks.  I might still get another pair or two.  I probably won't grab six though.

These also seem like something you could easily hand wash if you didn't want to buy a bunch of pairs. Just put them in a small bucket with a bit of detergent, let them soak, then air dry. I can't imagine they'd take long to air dry at all.

At least here in CO, they do not take very long to dry.  Actually, during hot days, I soak them in water when I play.  It helps me keep cool.  I would re-soak them with water (from on course water coolers) every 4-5 holes.  It feels nice and cool when wet.

    • First off, is this the oldest topic in the forum? 15 Years, wow. This discussion about the greatest of all time is mute.  All sports have the same point and counterpoints. Most Home-runs, best hitter in baseball, most Super Bowl Rings, on and on. Comparing athletes from different eras are practically impossible. From changes ranging from physicality to equipment, travel, nutrition, playing conditions, shorter courses vs longer courses, stadiums indoor vs outdoor, astroturf, lowering the mounds, 3 point lines, instant replay and more. Best of an “ERA” I could believe in that. Sustainability in a sport is a good measure, but not those that linger.  Having the most Majors?  Most Super Bowl Trophies? Individual sports, Team Sports? Jack vs Tiger?  Take your pick.  
    • Did they reattach the head? Not sure what the point of this game is. You could just do it on a football field. Why take up space on a golf course? Also they’e from Ipswich, MA. I’ve never seen anything like this around here.
    • 6-iron - Current 6-Iron 1) Slower backswing to feel the club slowing down at A3-A4.  *On a side note, somehow the swing path started to get closer to the heel? I had to start setting up with the ball more off the toe to hit center of club face. Like crazy development. My miss use to be more on the toe side of the club,  Driver with the backswing aid set up.  *This made it VERY hard to time up my swing. I use the carry on, and hinge of my wrist to time the downswing. So, I kept hitting a lot of low pull to straight cuts.  Slow-Mo TEE!!    OK, I am going to say... F*** You golf swing 😛 Just stop the the swing at A4. How the hell did the club get there with out me thinking about anything. Sigh!!  Like WTF!!! I give up, joking. I almost just started laughing at the range.   
    • Let's see... how many things can you do on a golf course?  Uh, fling golf, foot golf, regular golf, sled in the winter, ice skate on the ponds, cross-country ski, have keggers, have parties, have sex... the list goes on.  Mary Queen of Scots is turning over in her grave.
    • Tiger’s driving could be more erratic than Jack’s.    Driving: Jack (I think they were equal in distance relative to the equipment they were  playing, but Jack stayed out of the shit) Approach (75-250 yards): Wash. Jack takes the longer end (mainly because of some amazing 1 and 2 iron shots). Tiger takes the shorter end. Short Game: Tiger not close. Putting: Wash. Both of them in pressure situations.    Recovery: Tiger Mental: That’s a wash. Performance under pressure: Both How much better than everyone else was Tiger in his prime vs Jack on his prime? Tiger set the bar so high when he was in his prime that most guys behind him weren’t even in the same time zone let alone, the same tour. Jack was pretty damn good but he wasn’t as dominant as Tiger and that’s where Tiger is so much greater than Jack and that’s what makes him the GOAT.
