Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I loved the fit and comfort of these sun sleeves from the start and bought a few pairs immediately after my initial trial. I had no complaints until after a month and a half of repeated use, I noticed the forearms had thinned to the point that I wonder if it still offers protection from the sun. You can see through the fabric now with a large patch that is noticeably thinner on both forearms. Not sure what wore out the fabric, the washing method, the sun exposure, friction, etc. They have been washed using a gentle cycle in a protective wash sack and air dried in a sunroom on a clothes line, no dryer used. This happened to the white pair. I'm currently using the black pair to see if it has similar issues. I'm hopeful that it was an isolated occurrence on that one pair of sun sleeves because they have lived up to the hype regarding comfort and breathability. I would give this product a 5 star rating, but because of the thinning issue, I will give an inconclusive 3 star rating until I've tested out my remaining pairs.

Purchased for my wife. This is an okay Jersey, very light and breathable. It feels cool in Summer and gives UV protection, but the main problem is the waist band is weak and doesn't prevent the shirt from running up the torso. Take a look at the Mavic Athena LS Cycling Jersey. Cost a little more but a much better jersey.

I bought this for my wife for summer cycling, since she hates wearing UV arm covers. I also bought the Zero RH + Comet Full-Zip Summer Jersey - Long-Sleeve. By comparison, the Mavic Jersey in all areas is much better than the Comet jersey: looks, comfort, material, ventilation, waist grip, etc. Well worth the few extra dollars. My wife says the material is so light and smooth, it doesn't feel like a long sleeve jersey. Perfect for her tan lines... no more farmer's tan!!

I can't get past the opening on this balaclava. It is way to small and partially covers both eyes. There is no way to wear your cycling glasses and it obstructs your vision. It is very uncomfortable to wear. Do not buy unless you plan on cutting out a larger hole for improved vision.
