Cuts into my arm at the top

Review
I ordered according to my size (by the chart given) and the amount of compression wasn’t that great – I could just about feel it, however the that’s at the top of the sleeve really dug into my arm to the point of being painful and left a mark. Really not comfortable at all.However, if I’d ordered a larger size, I’m pretty sure the compression would’ve been totally inadequate.

Not compressive enough

Review
Provided a lot of compression at the forearm but not enough higher up. If I’d have gone a size smaller, it wouldn’t have fit at all.The material is warm and more of a thermal than general compressionNot much use for weight training, maybe for keeping arms warm in winter sports

Offer both good value for money and good support

Review
Arm sleeves are a common sight on cyclists in Spring and Autumn to keep the arms warm on chilly mornings until the sun doers it‚Äôs job. They are also used by tennis players, football players and a multiple of other sports such as golf or squash. Most merely cover the arms to keep them warm or cool dependent on colour, and potentially protected from fierce ultraviolet rays which can burn arms even when protected by sun cream. This pair of Raquex‚Ñ¢ arm sleeves is a little different, because aside from doing the jobs mentioned these are compression sleeves, giving sore muscles some support (the well known tennis elbow being one such issue), promoting blood circulation and helping muscles to recover from serious workouts by offering support. Offered for review under the Amazon Vine programme, it was that additional feature which attracted me over and above the many pairs of arm sleeves I possess.The sleeves are available in a choice of five colours: black, navy blue, light blue, orange and red, so there‚Äôs some ability to match a particular set of kit if you play or ride for a club. I followed the measurements in the provided sizing chart carefully, measuring around biceps and wrist to identify medium would be best. I chose black as most practical, able to match most kits. The sleeves aren‚Äôt entirely black, featuring a distinctive fading grey pattern and an ‚ÄúR‚Äù logo near the top which is replicated throughout the available colour choices. The tops are held up by a well stitched in set of gripper dots which ensure the sleeves stay where placed and don‚Äôt roll or inch down. Unlike many arm warmers they are not a complete tube, made the same way many T-shirts are in a continuous run. Rather they are machine stitched down the entire length of each sleeve, which will leave an imprint on your arm. All the stitching is well rendered however, with no obvious loose threads.The first thing to state is that, like arm warmers they are tight, but noticeably tighter ‚Äì not uncomfortably so, but giving a definite level of support. They are not unduly thick however, rather it seems to be a function of the weave or material used ‚Äì 95% polyester, 5% Spandex‚Ñ¢ (or Lycra‚Ñ¢ to a UK audience) which gives a stretch. By contrast cycling shorts and arm warmers seem to settle on 10-20% Lycra content, and it is this low percentage that offers the support. In use I found that they kept the arms from burning, both from muscles working and from the occasional long morning in the saddle on some already sunny days. The product information states that they offer an ultraviolet protection factor of 40+. As someone who is relatively pale skinned and who slathers with factor 50 on warm days to stop burning that‚Äôs a good feature.The sleeves are machine washable, with washing instructions shown on the simple cardboard packaging which as a committed recycler is a real bonus, easily recycled at the kerbside. They are:‚Ä¢ Wash at 30¬?C (standard for Lycra sportswear)‚Ä¢ Do not iron‚Ä¢ Do not bleach‚Ä¢ Do not tumble dry‚Ä¢ Do not dry cleanHowever they wash simply and easily in a standard household wash, and came up clean easily ‚Äì little more off-putting than items looking shabby and grey after a few washing cycles and I‚Äôm happy to report these come up fine.Although I no longer time trial these would be a boon for turning a short-sleeved skin suit into a long-sleeved equivalent to reduce wind resistance, which is just the sort of marginal gain time triallists are notorious for seeking out. In use they offer warmth and are indeed supportive, staying where placed. If you are the type of athlete who likes to keep going like the Duracell‚Ñ¢ bunny even when muscles are sore and aching these sleeves will assist you to train when your body is telling you to stop. At ¬£13.99 they offer both good value for money and good support.

Form-fitting and comfortable.

Review
The general problem with compression sleeves is fitting, it’s either too tight in the forearms or too loose on the wrist; however, these sleeves are different. At least from my experience, these sleeves are form-fitting and give support and warmth while I’m on my long cycle rides.But to complain about praises only. Very good indeed.

Seems good so far

Review
I’ve only had these compression sleeves for a few days but I’m reasonably impressed with them so far. I have issues with my lower arm and elbow so am trying these out and appear to be helping with my right arm & elbow. Will report back if I have any issues with them. I went for the XL version but possibly the Large would have been big enough.

Comfortable, but not much compression

Review
These “compression” sleaves keep your arms warm but don’t do much else. I tried these as I have bad elbows from climbing and martial arts, but I get more compression from my Skins compression tops than I do from these. Whilst they do keep your arms warm, and they do grab the top of your arms they don’t do much else.

Stays well in one place when I’m running on treadmill as well as I’m working out with weights. Good presume but not to strong so you have a support with good blood flow.

Stylish and Comfy

Review
I gave these to a friend who likes running and trendy athletic wear.She loved the colour and the design and couldn’t wait to try them out.On wearing she said they were rally comfy and contrary to what she thought might happen they stayed in place and didn’t ride up or down.The material is nice and sheer and she said she thought that it wicked away any ‘moisture’ quickly.Her other thought was that she felt that the compression aspect helped with getting blood to her hands and fingers as they felt warmer despite the could weather.Verdict: Well designed and stylish piece of sports wear at a reasonable price. No negatives.

Great compression for your arms

Review
These offer astonishing value and the right amount of compression for your arms. I’ve used them for running and cycling and they are really comfortable. Range of colours are available and they are easy to slip on and off but grippy enough to stay on your arm without sliding down. They arrive in nice packaging and would also be ideal as a gift. Recommended.

Smart compression sleeves add instant warmth

Review
Not my first or only compression sleeves but immediately one of my favourites. Warming, comfortable and smart-looking too. Only docked a star because I think they maybe size up slightly large and also because they seem to offer less compression on the lower arm than the upper (though that could be purely down to the sizing, and I’m probably between sizes). But a nice item nonetheless, and already being worn regularly.

Very good set of sleeves, nice medium compression, comfortable and warm, good price

Review
I recently reviewed a tennis racket from Raquex. It’s a nice one despite me not being able to test it yet in the field due to weather. But Raquex mostly specializes in accessories like racket grips, bags etc. I was really excited to try these sleeves.And they didn’t disappoint me. The material has a great feel. Very comfy, with good protection against cold and moisture wicking ability. The compression is medium, which is what most people will be after. It won’t restrict you movement, but will help with better blood circulation and prevent unnecessary muscle swelling.Apart from all above – they look amazing. I hesitated about picking the color. Chose black ones in the end as the most universal, but pretty much all of the offered variety is very pleasing to the eye.The fit of course depends on matching the size correctly, as well as how ‘proportionate’ your arms are. Between an overgrown biceps and thin forearm, something will have to give.I will be using these sleeves for running, cycling and tennis. At the current price of ¬£14 they are a really good bargain. More than happy to recommend.Thank you for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful.

Raquex Arm Sleeves

Raquex’s arm compression sleeves are made using premium quality, moisture wicking material, and provide excellent muscle and joint support when playing sports. These arm sleeves feature a non slip section at the top of the arm to ensure it doesn’t move while exercising. They’re perfect to help relieve pain caused by tennis elbow, pain in forearms, biceps and triceps, relieving pain caused by tendonitis and joint pains, and aid with circulation and help to reduce swelling. Our arm sleeves support muscles and joints, making them ideal football compression sleeves, tennis compression sleeves, basketball compression sleeves as well as for use in many other sports to support and prevent injury.

Ideal for both men and women, Raquex’s arm compression garment also makes the perfect gift or present for Christmas and birthdays for sport mad friends and family!

 

Sizing

MEASUREMENT Length Bicep Wrist
Small 40.5cm 22cm 14cm
Medium 41.5cm 24cm 16cm
Large 43cm 26cm 18cm
Extra Large 45cm 28cm 20cm

The circumferences are the measurements of the openings of the arm sleeves. This means you’ll want an opening smaller than your arm, to create some compression. As an example, if your bicep measures 26cm relaxed, the Small or Medium sizes would be best suited as they are 24cm or 22cm at the bicep. Size down for more compression. All sizes are approximate.
