- Fabric blocks 90% UVB rays and provides a cooling sensation when wet
- Softcover elastic on upper arms to keep them in place
- Reflective logos for increased low-light visibility
- We are often imitated. Remember just because it is white, it does not mean the fabric will cool you. READ ON!

What makes ours different? Our Skin Cooler fiber is designed to feel and perform like silk (from a silkworm). Through Biomimicry, we took the virtues of this natural fiber and created a synthetic silk. It will keep you cool in hot weather and cooler when it is wet. Put it on and you will instantly feel the cool sensation. Wet it and you will notice a drop in the surface temperature of the skin between 7 and 10 degrees.
You want the Arm Cooler measurement at the Top Opening to be smaller than your bicep measurement. The elastic holds the Arm Cooler in place.

A MEDICAL TESTIM0NIAL: We received this letter from Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon Dr. Michael Bax.*
I am an avid runner and triathlete and I recently discovered your Skin Cooler products, of which I'm a huge fan. I have been wearing them for a few months now and couldn't be happier. I am a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY. Every patient I see is plagued by basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or melanoma. I recommend your products to my active patients on a daily basis. It allows them to continue their active lifestyle while protecting themselves from the sun. I find your product to be far superior to all other cooling and sun protective lines. I truly appreciate your efforts and innovations.

Note: No garment should ever be a substitute so we always recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these, and all, 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 or zinc oxide.

I have been using your products for many years and I’m planning to keep using them for many to come
I have three pair. They work great!
Excellent construction/materials/design. I have the previous version from 2007; they have performed flawlessly, but current material appears more robust; works very well. As with any DeSoto product I’ve used over the past 15 years, highly reccomended !
This is my second pair of DeSoto arm coolers and I'm very happy with them. I like the sun protection and the good fit so they aren't constantly slipping down. I will buy another pair for sure when these are worn out.
work as i had hoped for. good fit and definitely helps with protection from the sun while biking. will use them for canoe trips as well

The location of where the Arm Cooler length should be measured depends on where you want it to sit but most people like it somewhere on or just above the “ball” that constitutes your bicep when your lift up your elbow so the upper arm is parallel to the ground. Most important is that you consider how long the sleeve is on the top(s) you plan on wearing. Please see attached photos.
