    Description

    There is only one Original Arm Cooler and this is it. We invented it, we gave it its name.

    Protect yourself from the sun and heat, with DE SOTO ARM COOLERS™. Yes, ARM COOLERS...contrary to what you wear in the winter to keep your arms warm, this set of sleeves keeps you cooler in hot weather. Skin Cooler™ is a special moisture-radiating material that actually offers a cooling effect. They are guaranteed to keep your arms cooler in training and in racing than not wearing anything. If you do not find this to be true, return them for a complete refund!

    Skin Cooler™ Fabrics Clarified

    Do not be deceived. Simply because a garment is white does not make it Skin Cooler™! It is time for us to redefine and make clear what makes Skin Cooler™ so unique. Since 2004, when we invented Arm Coolers, we have been telling this story, but in different words. While the rest of the world has been trying to wick moisture away from your body, we have not. WE WANT TO KEEP YOU WET like a tropical rain on a hot sunny afternoon, like the sprinklers on your lawn when you were a child, like the cool misty sea spray of a wave on a warm San Diego day at the beach. Skin Cooler™ fabrics are designed by De Soto to cool you in hot weather.

    Our Black Skin Cooler™ fabric keeps you just as cool as the white. It inherently has a reflective virtue that is created by a combination of the fibers, the fiber content, and the special way the fabric is knitted. Once the black fabric gets wet it keeps you cool in hot weather. This is no gimmick, we guarantee it works or you money back!

    As you sweat, the special moisture-radiating composition actually offers a cooling effect by dissipating the moisture through channels to the outside of the fabric and just the slightest breeze will cool you down. The fabric will be wet, yet you will be cool.

    Skin Cooler™ fabrics block 75% of UVB rays (the burning rays), about as much as a cotton t-shirt or a bike jersey. We recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and/or avobenzone.

    Product FAQs

    1. What are the sizes?
    2. Does this product block UVA rays?
    3. For my next IM, it looks like it may be in the 50s to low 60s when we get out of the water but get up into the 80's as the day goes on. If I put them on dry arms at the start of the bike would you expect me to feel even colder than without them?

    2. Does this product block UVA rays?

      NO. NO GARMENT IN THE WORLD MADE OF A BREATHABLE FABRIC BLOCKS UVA RAYS.

      All of our Skin Cooler products are designed primarily to keep you cool in hot weather. This is their main function. The special moisture-radiating composition actually offers a cooling effect. The moisture dissipates through channels to the outside of the fabric so that it dries 3 times faster than regular polyester and 5 times faster than cotton.

      The secondary purpose is to protect you from the sun. Skin Cooler fabrics block 75% of UVB rays (these are the burning rays), which is about as much as a cotton t-shirt or any bike jersey you may wear. This is why we recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation, the rays that cause sunburn. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and/or avobenzone.

      We do not claim in any way that any of our fabrics block UVA rays (aging rays). A fabric would have to be laminated to a point that is so opague that NO LIGHT would be able to pass through. If you find any company that claims their garments block UVA rays, be skeptical until you can test it outside. A simple way of testing that their claim is true, is to put it up toward the sun and see if you can see the sun through it. If you can see sun coming through it, then it is not blocking UVA rays. A few examples of things that block UVA rays are: wood, metal, concrete, aluminum foil, none of these permit light through them.

    3. For my next IM, it looks like it may be in the 50s to low 60s when we get out of the water but get up into the 80's as the day goes on. If I put them on dry arms at the start of the bike would you expect me to feel even colder than without them?
      This is a really well thought-out question. If you dry your arms with a towel before putting on the Arm Coolers, then yes, you will get a bit of insulation from them at least until you start to sweat and the Arm Coolers themselves get wet. The effect of the Skin Cooler™ fabric happens upon sweating or getting them wet, so you will be fine until the temps warm up, or until you warm up!
