"I bought these because of the price. They are half the price of Nike and I wasn't expecting much BUT to my surprise, Uvoider sleeves are of better quality and feel great. Not only do they protect you from the UV but they double as compression sleeves keeping your arms from getting tired. I am well pleased. I returned and purchased 3 more pair!".......by Tommy Jennings
"Your arm sleeves are awesome! Wish I'd discovered them sooner! I suffer from Melanoma skin cancer and really shouldn't be exposed to the sun over any part of my body. Your sleeves allow me to work in the sun without worry. Can't say enough about how much they improve my lifestyle. I classify products in 2 ways: swear by and swear at. The first time I put on a pair, I knew I had a product to swear by. Can't go wrong with the price either."........by Pierre DuCharme
"These sleeves are obviously high quality - much better material than some I have had. While the material is heavier than some, the sleeves still feel equally as cool as any I have had. Fit is really good and it appears that the elasticity off the fabric will last a long time. Very happy with the purchase.".......by Bruce King
In the 2000-2001 basketball season, Allen Iverson began wearing an arm sleeve on account of bursitis in his shooting elbow. This was nearly 20 years ago. He was the first and only player to wear arm sleeves. And now, 65% of the players in the NBA wear an arm sleeve and many wear two arm sleeves. The same phenomenon is happening at the grass roots, high school, and college level. Increasingly, basketball players are wearing arm sleeves and like with many other sports, the reasons why should not come as a surprise.
Arm sleeves provide compression that reduces swelling, increases blood flow, and reduces fatigue. Few basketball players, and most athletes for that matter, play injury free. Many shooting guards have chronic Shooter’s Elbow, a made up term to describe the effects of tendonitis. Whether you are a NBA star or the neighborhood court king, elbow pain can hurt your game physically with sudden jarring and mentally with worry and loss of confidence. The compression that arm sleeves provides can lessen the discomfort of elbow pain and help to prevent fatigue and the stress and strain that can lead to injury.
Sleeves keep your arms warm and as a general rule, the warmer your arm muscles are the more flexible they will be. Few sports demand as much arm flexibility as basketball. If you arm stiffens up, you are much more likely to make errant passes, miscues in your dribbling especially cross-overs and behind the back, and you can forget about making any long range three pointers.
Whether you are being scratched when you are making a jump shot, assaulted en route to the hoop, or just caught up in a loose ball scramble, basketball provides endless opportunities for injury and the arms are not immune to any of it. Arm sleeves can help to prevent cuts and scratches and can help to keep your tendons in place and free from stress and strain.
And one more thing, arm sleeves look good. If you look good on the court and feel good as you play, you are likely to perform well. You might even psych out your opponent. And isn’t that the point of competition, to not just win but look good doing it.
