I'm getting ready to purchase a new barefoot suit and I've always had sleeves. Are there any real advantages to the sleeveless suits, or for that matter, what are the disadvantages ya'll have discovered?

The sleeveless are easier to put on and take off if you have big shoulders. I'm sure others will chime in soon.

I just bought this and I am going from sleeves to no sleeves for the reason TN Barefooter says; easier to get in and out of it. Plus it shows more of your guns, if you have guns... :D

I concur, sleeveless for ease of taking on and off mostly for taking off after a good run but if its not a good fit the arm opening can catch water on tumble turns and deep ups

Very true, but that won't happen if you have big guns as mentioned above LOL ;):D:D:D

BFI Sleeveless

If you need some more warmth, get a heater shirt or light wetsuit to wear underneath.

Do they still make suits with sleeves? Most of the suits I see are sleeveless. Aside from what was said above, I really don't have much to add. Sleeveless allows more mobility in your arms, easier on and off, and the lady's like the 'gun show.'

Owned one bf suit with sleeves...will NEVER buy one like that again. Two i bought since then were sleeveless.

The reasons above are in line w mine.

Always sleeveless and on my third suit. Cant comment the other way but it looks uncomfortable trying to get that sleeve out of your arm pit after a spill!
