We were truly chuffed with the product as our son had sliced two fingers open a week before we were due to travel and had to have an emergency operation the repair the tendons. Infact we didn't know if we could travel until 4 days before we were due to as we were waiting for the surgeons okay. We were told he was not to get the hand wet, dirty or in the sun for fear of infection. Your arm protector literally saved our son from a very boring holiday. As you can see he wore the protector for the pool and the beach, using the protector for the majority of the day.
