The Panache Arm Screens look odd but are surprisingly effective at keeping the sun's rays off your skin to help you stay cool

Our review

These work as advertised in keeping sun’s heat off skin while still allowing airflow, but they're too expensive for what they are

Panache’s Arm Screens are essentially mesh arm warmers. The idea is to keep the sun’s rays off your skin in hot weather while still allowing airflow.

We were sceptical but were pleasantly surprised to find that they do actually work – though perhaps we should have expected this given the concept’s prevalence in desert cultures.

Cooling air noticeably goes right through, sweat is quickly wicked away from the skin and the white material tends to reflect sunlight.  

However, hazier and more humid conditions still found us preferring bare skin and we had to deal with a few jeers from our riding buddies plus a rather erratic tan.

Though pleasingly effective, US$45 is simply too much to ask for these, especially given the simple construction.
