Arm Protection Sleeves – My opinion
When I started looking for an arm protection sleeve for gardening after having my arm look like I was stabbed with a knife doing getting some vegetables out of my garden.
I found several that were great for us seniors that you can also use for other purposes. Some of them are even cut resistant even from a knife cut. I also found some that were just made to be used outdoors but decided to have a look at both types.
It was obvious that I had to do something while working in my small vegetable garden. I love working and growing part of our own food but also needed to protect my arms from being scratched. You know that some vegetables like Okra come with some sharp parts.
The ones I found here are, in my opinion, the ones that most of us will fit and help to keep arm arms covered.
