Keeps the sun off but uncomfortable

I've used it several times
True to size
Size Bought

I found these true to size. However the band around the top is so thin it rolls up and feels like a tourniquet cutting into my thighs, but at least they don't slide down. Also because the material is so slick my shorts slide up. However it does keep the sun off and my legs don't feel overheated. I've ridden up to 85° now but I don't think I could wear them in any warmer weather. The jury is still out on whether I will continue to wear them.

Why don't these come in XXS? LOL!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Runs large
Size Bought

Somehow, an XS is still a little large on my legs. I have relatively thin, but muscular legs, so I always have problems finding knee and leg warmers that don't look baggy on me. This XS fits well enough, all considering. The leg gripper works well and stayed up for my 50-mile gravel ride. It's nice to have a super-thin knee warmer to just take the edge off a slightly chilly day. I'll definitely be using these in the fall and spring!


Is this sold in pair or single?


Is this a single sleeve or two in a set for both legs?

This is a pair, one for each leg


HOw do I figre the size for the knee sleeves

Hey Len! Click on the "Size Chart" link right above the Size & Color drop-down menus (above) to view the sizing information. You will need to measure both your calf and thigh circumference to figure out the correct size for you. Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions; I'm always happy to help you out. - Zina Bougri // zbougri@backcountry.com
