Lady Hike’s one-piece Sunblock Shrugs offer a minimalist solution for arm protection against the elements.
Tired of slathering pure zinc on my arms and hands and still having burned knuckles after weeks of ridge hiking along the Continental Divide Trail, I created detachable sleeves, that morphed into our new Sunblock Shrug. Like our Willow sleeves, the Shrug has the unique cut in the armpits that allows natural ventilation. This is a one piece that “hugs” the back of the neck and provides full coverage down to your knuckles. We also have two thumbs holes for ease in sizing the arm length. Theses sleeves are so versatile! It is perfect for chilly mornings, whether you are running a marathon or just hanging around camp. It folds up to basically nothing, so I can easily stow it in one of my many pockets. It is also very cooling when soaked in water. On my recent rim to rim day hike across the Grand Canyon, it was both sunblock and cooling as I soaked at water crossings as needed.
Ideal for hikers, cyclists, and equestrians.
Currently available in black. More colors coming soon.
Order one size smaller than your normal top, as sizing needs to be snug to stay in place.
