Insulation and Propulsion Help
I use sleeves and a sleeveless wet-suit to gain the hydrodynamic advantage of a full suit, but keep my shoulders open. I have more subcutaneous fat in my shoulders than most people and the heat becomes unbearable with a full suit. This is a terrific compromise and worked well first time in competition, and T1 time was not compromised as the sleeves are easily and quickly removed. Be aware, however, there is more "paddle" surface so adjust your stroke pull to prevent connective tissue stress injury.

Good quality, too small
These seem like very good quality sleeves. The sizin is way off. I’m at the low end of my size range and could not them on. My friend who is smaller than me, got them on but her hand started to feel numb. Unfortunately I had to return them. I found another brand that was sized properly and also felt more flexible.
Too Too Small
Listed as a men's size, but it was too too small. I could not even get my hand through the wrist opening. It seemed well made but really, I'm 5'2" and weight about 125. A men's small should have been easy to fit for me.

Does not fit
The large choked off my blood supply to my hands.
2 mm swim sleeves review
Wish I had ordered the medium, instead of the small. My size suggested the small, but it was way, way, way, too small. They should have (perhaps) indicated the small size was for children, not adults, but perhaps they thought the small size was for "buff" adults. Since I took the tags off, I do not meet the criteria to return them for another pair that was larger than I could actually use. I swim/ 'work out' in our town's community pool to maintain the ability to walk, rather than be in a chair, etc., and I will continue to do so. All their other 'gear' I purchased from SwimOutlet was just great. The insulated gloves didn't last too long, but for their price, were worth it.
The swim sleeves STILL HAVE NOT ARRIVED - ordered several weeks ago.
CALLED Swim Outlet and they said pkg. was in Houston - that was over about a week ago. Have purchased other things from swim outlet and all were of good quality and reasonable shipping time.
TYR Neoprene Swim Sleeves 2mm
From long distance swimming, my upper arms have become bigger so these sleeves fit very snugly at first, when I tried them on dry, before swimming. They seem to be quite warm so they will provide the extra protection against the cold water for which I purchased them.
Sleeves are perfect with a sleeveless wetsuit as the water gets colder
I bought these sleeves as the fall water temperature is dropping to go with my sleeveless shorty wetsuit. The water temperature is in the upper 50's now and I'm plenty warm with the sleeves.I have shortish, but hefty arms for a woman and am happy with the size medium. There's a bit of tugging to get them on properly, but they then stay in place fine.Very happy with them.

i love these, fit well and keep my arms warm during an open water swim with my sleeveless wetsuit. i prefer to keep my shoulders open for more flexibility. i have worn these in water temps of love 60's
Serves their intended purpose
These sleeves serve their intended purpose: Add arm warmth to a sleeveless suit, without the shoulder restriction of a sleeved suit. I bought them for an early-season race on Long Island, where the water was a bit chilly.Similar to a sleeved suit, I opted not to wear my Garmin watch for the race, because the sleeves are quite tight and I don't want to tear them in T-1. In water-exit pictures taken during at the race, I noticed the sleeves drifted down my arm a bit. I think I noticed this while swimming, but don't completely recall. I deducted 1 star for this reason.
Long Island, NY
Used these with my sleeveless tri suit for a cold water swim/race. Worked great, had rom in my shoulders and warmth on my arms. I am small framed, the small size worked great and were tight but not too tight and kept water out.
