Great piece of UV protection gear. Very breathable, excellent for outdoor sport under sun and hot weather condition. Sadly it is oftenly out of stock, can't buy more... :-(
I m using the product since from 2 years it is just fabulous.
Product is very much comfortable and perfect fit in hands. However it doesnt work properly in touch screens. From first day itself it was little trouble using but later on its not at all useful on screens.
Excellent product but little costly.
They r saying upf 40 rating only for the fabric. But not for the final product made with that fabric. So the stretching and stitchs makes it less protective. and i have been using this for the past few days with and additional cotton gloves above it. But my skin getting darker and darker. So i doubt the quality.

Very soft, fit in size, can wear during all activities for protection from sunburn.... Rest details will post in due course after regular usage....
I have been using them to interact in covid times super comfortable difficult to use touch screen phones though.washable can sanitize in sunlight.
Excellent product very comfortable and easy to wear and tear
You should have a longer length, with the closures they have at the end of gloves at the end of the sleeve, at the elbow...
Leichte, angenehm zu tragende Handschuhe. Leicht an und auszuziehen. Bieten guten Halt an Lenkrad, da wo die Sonne am meisten brennt. Manches Hemd deckte die Lücke bis zum Handschuh nicht ab. Da Material aus Stoff, blieb diese manchmal an Fels oder Busch hängen, aber bis jetzt keine sichtbare Schäden.
Ich brauchte die UV Schutzhandschuhe nicht für die Wüste, sondern für eine Strahlentherapie beim Hautarzt. Ich hatte die Handschuhe über 4 Wochen fast täglich im Einsatz. Die Qualität und die Passform sind hervorragend. Die Handschuhe habe ich direkt dem Hautarzt für seine weiteren Patienten empfohlen.
Getestet habe ich die Größe xs/s - angenehmes Gefühl auf der Haut (seidig leicht) - Touch Oberfläche am Zeigefinger/ Daumen funktionieren (aber nicht immer) - Grip Funktion zum halten von Gegenständen ist nur leicht abgenutzt/ Funktionalität bleibt - einziges Manko im Zeitraum: reißt sehr leicht, wenn man auch nur ein bisschen wo hängen bleibt (nur an den Nahtstellen)
- 16% Elasthane
- 84% Polyester
This may seem surprising, and yet these gloves come in very useful when trekking in the desert!Indeed, these anti-UV gloves reduce the risk of skin damage due to the desert sun (burns, brown spots, etc.)What's more, wearing gloves does not necessarily mean an increase in heat: the fabric of the DESERT 500 gloves is lightweight and breathable, giving you the UV protection you need without the heat!
The UPF index (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) corresponds to tests carried out on fabric by a spectrophotometer.UPF 40 means that only 1/40th of UV rays penetrated the fabric, one of the highest protection levels against the sun's rays.
The black print on the thumb and index finger contains conductive particles so you can use your touchscreens (smartphone, camera, tablet, etc.) without removing your gloves!
