The Korean eBay sleeves may be cheap, but are good. Nothing lost there IMHO.

My wife picked me up a pair of the white Aldi sleeves when they were on sale a couple of weeks ago. I haven't worn them in anger yet (only tried them on for size). Compared to previous ones I've had they seem well made and should do the job.

If there's any concerns about the SPF of the sleeves, then just make sure u have sun screen on beneath them.. No need to spend too much $$ on them...

I've been dealing with rashes from my Route7 ones; not impressed at all :( hadn't had rashes for ages, but I hadn't been using them for monthes either. Didn't have issues on shorter rides, but the 12 hours on Sunday has brought it back. Hoping that my club kit doesn't have the same problem!

I bought a pair of the IceRays ones that golfers use. They are great. They dont slip down and are cooling when the breeze hits. They say they are a genuine 50+ protection and are certified by the Australian Government Radiation Testing Service. I have no reason to doubt them as I have done some long rides in them in hot sun and have not got burnt. They are quite pricey (AT) $29.95 pair compared to the cheap ebay ones but I figure you get what you pay for as I had some ebay ones and they kept slipping down and
were nowhere near as comfy. Im going to order some more from IceRays as they have lots different colours.

I have some Netti ones, I think they were $29.95 as well, from a LBS (probably cheaper online). They are a good fit and stay white, unlike the Pearl Izumi ones I had previously.

I bought some other cheap ($5, with free freight!) sun sleeves from eBay but they are too short and leave half my forearms exposed to the sun. Apart from that minor problem they are good! :roll:

Where do you get IceRay ones from?

I got them from their online store but most of the golf pro shops and golf stores seem to have them. Online address is I just looked them up and they have around 10 colours.
