Review: Louva Arm Sleeves

A few weeks ago, Louva Gear followed me on Twitter. SO exciting!! Naturally, I followed back and let me them know I'd love to try out a pair of their sleeves.

Just a few days later, I was testing them out on a run.

The thing I love about arm sleeves is that they can prolong how long into the winter I can wear my tank tops and short sleeve shirts.

Plus they're super fun! And these arm sleeves are no exception; they're awesome!

I mean they have thumb holes. Isn't everything better with thumb holes?! So, they help keep my hands nice and warm, too.

There is also a nice thick banding at the top to help keep them in place. No slippage for me at all, and I've taken them on quite a few runs!

Plus the material is super soft. 

And the best part is they are only $12. TWELVE DOLLARS. I mean you really can't beat that price for these comfy little gems.

Currently, they are only available in white, but rumor has it they'll be coming out with other colors sometime in the future.

The white is great because, if you're feeling artistic, you can write on the sleeves. Motivational quotes. Your splits. The sky's the limit. These would have been really handy for Rock and Roll Las Vegas when I wrote my splits on my arms. :-D

Here's the back of the packaging.

I haven't washed mine yet, but the Care Instructions seem super easy. Bonus points!

The only complaint I have about these sleeves is that after only a couple of runs, they did start to pill a little on the insides of the elbow area.

Maybe it's also a sign that I need to take a closer look at my running form. :-D

Overall, I would definitely recommend these arm sleeves to anyone looking for a good quality, inexpensive way to keep a little bit warmer on those chilly days!

Do you prefer arm sleeves or long sleeves for chilly weather running?

Disclosure: I received these arm sleeves complimentary from Louva Gear in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I'd never heard of this company before so I'm glad you shared! I like arm warmers during a race so that I can easily remove them when I warm up.

    1. I hope you try these out, Tina! I think they're really great. :)
