This time of year playing an outdoor sport (softball, football, soccer, field hockey, lacrosse or cross country) means you need to be prepared for every kind of weather! You might start the first half of the soccer game in the nice warm sun but as soon as the sun drops down in the horizon, temperatures plummet. You don’t want to put on the long sleeve jersey and overheat at the beginning of the game, but there just isn’t time to change up uniforms mid-game either.

Enter Exxo Arms Sleeves for Youth Sports!

Exxo’s arm sleeves are perfect for finicky weather days. Just slip the lightweight sleeve on for extra protection from the elements and slip them off just as easily – think tights for your arms. From the Exxo website:

Flow arm sleeves are lightweight, versatile arm protection designed for youth athletes. Don’t let that frosty morning or chilly night affect your game, slide on the ultra-soft Flow arm sleeves for added warmth, amazing comfort and a true second-skin feel.

The fabric’s breath-ability and moisture wicking technology pulls sweat off your skin so you stay comfortable and dry. The UPF 40+ fabric also means you’re protected against the sun and don’t have to lather up with sunscreen.

Last spring when my daughter was playing field hockey, the Exxo Arm Sleeves would have really come in handy! She would be freezing at the beginning of the game and sweating by the end.  
You can purchase Exxo Armwear for your athlete at the Exxo site or on Amazon for around $20 a pair. They will definitely be in my daughter’s field hockey bag this coming season. 
Disclosure – I received a pair of the Exxo Arm Sleeves for the purpose of review, however, all opinions are my own.

Golf in Style with NivoSport

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Nivo Sport Golf Gear I am so eager to get back on the golf course – it has been almost two months and practicing in the backyard with a sports net is just not cutting it! I’m also ready because I have some great new golf clothes from NivoSport that I am looking forward to showing off. NivoSport is a line of womens’ golf and active wear that is designed in Canada with European styling that is only available in some of the best golf pro shops worldwide (Pebble Beach Golf and Oakmont Country Club to name a few). NivoSport sent me a few pieces from their collection to try and I just love them!

From skorts, to shorts, polos and sweaters, Nivo has established itself as the perfect blend of fashion, performance and fit. The outfit they sent me is in the photo to the right – a graphic polo, a skort and a belt. At 5′ 9″ tall, womens’ golf gear that works for me is often hard to find. I was so excited that the Nivo outfit ran TRUE to SIZE and fit very comfortably. Because of the great fit and the high quality fabrics the Novo pieces look great on, too! They are definitely nice enough to go from the golf course to the club house to the carpool line and beyond while looking put together.

The only major drawback to the Nivo line is that you can not buy it online yet, but you can use their interactive store finder on the website to find a proshop closest to you where you can purchase their golf apparel.

Here’s hoping I will get to golf this week!! And do it in style with my new Nivo Sport outfit.

Disclosure – I was sent the outfit for review purposes but all opinions are my own.
