#LouvaGear Arm Sleeves - Review & #GIVEAWAY

Disclaimer: I received black LouvaGear sleeves for review & GIVEAWAY purposes.  I was not requested to write a positive review.  All opinions are my own and I have received no monetary compensation for this post.  

Okay.  Rest of the country, be mad at me but I have thin blood.  This means I get cold VERY easily!  Luckily San Diego doesn't get too cold in the winter but we do have the rare day that dips into the 30's.  On those days, its a no brainer.  Long sleeves, beanies, pants, the whole shebang!  But on those days of low 50s, I am presented with a choice.  Long sleeves and skirt?  Or tank and capris?  Or my favorite choice?  Tank, skirt and SLEEVES!



This is the perfect outfit for a number of reasons.  Socks keep me warm and my shin splints at bay.  Skirt because it is cute.  Tank because it is sunny San Diego and at some point during the run I will get warm.  But the smartest part of this outfit?  The Louva gear arm sleeves.  You can put them on and take them off as needed.  (And they make a great sweat / snot rag while they are off!)



So why these sleeves?  Every single company out there makes sleeves.  Well, for one, these are affordable.  Like $12 affordable.  Not quite disposable affordable but definitely reasonable.  Makes it worth getting even for the 7-10 days of "cold" weather we have!  Another reason?  You can write on Louva sleeves.  This means that you can write your split times, have someone wish you good luck on the race and so many other possibilities.


They also stay put and don't fall off.  No slippage.  They stay in place and there is NO tugging!


And the best part?  They have THUMBHOLES!!!!  Yes!  So they are like a glove without preventing your fingers from being able to take a picture.  Just sayin.'



These are hands down my favorite sleeves I have ever tried.  They make them in white and black for now.  And if you know me, you KNOW I am itching for more colors!  Haha!  Louva, if you are reading, please make hot pink and royal blue next!

As always, I am giving you a chance to win your own pair.  One winner gets to pick white or black.  One size fits MOST!  Enter on the Rafflecopter to win!

  11. I always over dress. The sleeves look like a great idea because you can wear them for the two hours before the race when you're standing around freezing but then take them off after that first mile gets you all warmed up!

  16. I've never used them but think they'd be better than messing with a jacket on my walks. I think I'd take the black ones. If they could do any color I'd select blue.

  17. I've been more and more interested in these -- they seem like they'd be especially good for biking! I'd pick white, and if I could have any color, PINK! Or blue. Or orange. :-)

  19. I have a few pairs of arm sleeves, but I would like to try these because of the wide elastic. All the others I have will roll down my biceps. --Monica

  28. I occasionally wear arm sleeves, but they don't have thumb holes!! And they are white.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those are awesome. I've been looking into getting some for when the temp is right on that edge for me. I love the thumbholes in these look great. Hard to pick between the white and black, maybe white.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I do not have arm sleeves now, but I think it is a great idea and I would like them.

  34. Haven't tried arm sleeves yet but would love to! I live in a desert climate, so on longer runs, it's cold in the beginning, but warms up a lot by the end. I think they would be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Id wear the black and love the thumb holes! ingenious!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wear them if it is cold out. I like that it is so easy to remove a layer when you get warm. I would probably wear black :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've wanted to get some arm sleeves as I am also in Southern California and deal with the same issues you noted - what to do when that temp drops down but you know that you're going to warm up once you get going! :-) Would love to wear either white or black!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have never worn sleeves but they make perfect sense! And I love the thumb holes! Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Have never worn them - I'd pick white.
