Sun Protection Arm Sleeves & Gloves
Whether you have a skin condition that needs to be covered while outside, or you’re looking to add even more sun protection to your short-sleeved sun shirt, UV Skinz® sun protection sleeves and sun protection gloves can help.
Just like our UV Neck Shields, Sun Wraps, and Sun Protective Accessories, our UV sleeves and sun protection gloves are made with a UPF 50+ sun protective fabric designed to block 98% of UV rays from hitting your hands and arms while you're enjoying a day in the sun.
Why UPF 50+?
When you consider the fact that more than 9,500 people in the United States are diagnosed with skin cancer every day and that just five or more sunburns double your risk for melanoma, the need for proper sun protection becomes clear. That’s why at UV Skinz®, we’ve made it our mission to create the best UV hand sleeves, sun protection gloves, and UPF 50+ Apparel for everyone in your family.
You see, when you wear UV hand sleeves, sun protection gloves, or clothing with a UPF 50+ rating, you’re wearing apparel guaranteed to block 98% of damaging UV rays from ever reaching your skin. UPF 50+ is the highest level of protection you can get on the market and can make all the difference in the health of your skin.
Arm Sun Protectors & Gloves for Sensitive Skin
All of our UPF 50+ men’s and women’s sun sleeves and sun protection glove fabrics are lightweight, quick-drying, chemical-free, and resistant to salt water and chlorine. Because this fabric is chemical-free, even those with sensitive skin can find comfort and protection from the sun.
Unisex Sun Protection Sleeves & Gloves
Our UV arm sleeves and sun protection gloves are unisex and can be worn by both men and women. You’ll love how our Bamboo Sun Sleeves protect your forearms from the sun without covering your hands. These UV protection sleeves feature thumbholes that keep them snugly in place on your arm and upper hand and are available in four neutral colors. Enjoy these sun sleeves in sizes ranging from XS to 2XL/3XL.
The Protexgloves Elle Grip Long Gloves are an elbow-length sun protection glove designed to deliver the utmost comfort, protection, and versatility. These gloves feature silicone grip ovals on the palm and fingertips for non-slip holding power ideal for those with compromised hand strength, benefiting those suffering from things like arthritis and Scleroderma.
Similarly, the Protexgloves Grip Gloves offer the same non-slip features and hand protection you want without the extended protection provided by the long gloves. Gloves are available in small, medium, and large sizes.
Wear these sun-blocking accessories during a trip to the beach, at the pool, while hiking or biking, or during any other activity where prolonged sun exposure is expected; you’ll be glad you did!
