PIT Article about Arm Sleeves


Came across a great blog post on arm sleeves from our friends at PIT. It turns out that there are many benefits to arms sleeves. Some of those benefits are psychological and some are not. Alot of our Uparel Custom Arm Sleeves are mainly for show but it is interesting to see how there is scientific research being done on them. To read more got to Do Shooting Sleeves Actually Help?

Some Important things to know about arm sleeves:

  • AATCC UPF 50+ sun protection is a must
  • Polyester/Spandex provides adequate wicking while.
  • Nylon actually draws water to the skin and is not recommended for arm sleeve use
  • Make sure that there are appropriate sizes to firmly support the arm but not over constrict
  • Bands/Rubber rings around the top of the sleeve do more harm then good.

China the new services economy?


Looking at the latest numbers reported by Reuters. I find it interesting as manufacturing cools in China we see large growth in the services sector. Many may see this as a threat to western counterparts. But, the reality is that China can run manufacturing surpluses for so long before it must find a way to spend those surpluses. No-one knows if this shift is happening now but the Reuters article does hint to that.

How does that affect us? It’s hard to tell but we might start to see higher prices from China for goods. Goods will cost more as more of China’s services economy expands. This can be an opportunity for other countries. Countries like the USA.
