Best thing since sliced bread

After having melanoma, I am very conscious of how much sun exposure I am getting cycling. Plus, I ride in Texas, where it's just flat out miserably hot in summer.

I tested these out on a big 49 mile charity ride ride the weekend before last. While I bought them for sun protection, I was skeptical of whether they would keep me cooler. I am now a 100% convert.

They work best if you squirt water on them to wet them as you ride - but if you do that, they really do make a huge difference.

I was literally telling people about them at every rest stop and at the finish line. I came home and ordered more. I will not ride in Texas summer heat without them anymore. I now have both the white and pink and I returned another well known brand's arm coolers after wearing these - these are SO MUCH LIGHTER and MORE COMFORTABLE to wear!

Craft, please make the same thing to protect your legs from sun exposure! Pretty please!

I'm 5'6, 140 lbs - a small fits me perfectly.
