What are the compression sleeves good for?

Keeps them warm before during and after. I do like the sun protection though honestly, that’s a big part of it I would think 
Why do they call it compression sleeves though?
I wear a compression sleeve for pickleball and racquetball.  It does help keep the arm warm, but I also find that it gives the arm 'cool' feeling due to the compression.  It helps to minimize arm fatigue... that is help reduce the build up of lactic acid and aid with muscle recovery.  And with the slight amount of compression, they aid in better circulation through the arm - thus why there is a sense of a 'cool' feeling in the arm.
