I have SaLeaf arm sleeves from about a year ago which I wore in my first three half-marathons (and many training runs). Since then, Ink-n-Burn changed the arm sleeve fabric. At first I was worried...in the prior fabric Medium fit great but in the new fabric, the medium was just too tight (my biceps measure 11.5)...might the L's be too loose around the biceps - but NO PROBLEMO! And having received Cherry Blossom sleeves as a gift, I was thrilled to have another pair of Ink-n-burn sleeves. The design is more vibrant on the new fabric vs. the old. And I love the length of these sleeves - I use them for slight warmth in cool weather and sun protection in any weather and much prefer sleeves that go high on the biceps and down to the wrists like these do. Already trying to figure out which design to add to my collection next. (Posted on 2/11/12)
I wore these during a 10K recently on a cloudy, rainy day. I normally overheat an race in shorts and a race bra, but these sleeves felt GREAT!
They kept me warm, but wicked away moisture, even in the rain!
I have to say, they looked smokin' too! (Posted on 5/16/11)
