Since it’s inception, Body Glove® has been dedicated to
improving the quality of your performance whether on land or out in the sea.
Body Glove® was developed in the 1950’s by twin brothers, Bob & Bill
Meistrell. Bob & Bill were innovative thinkers, and loved to experiment.
Their passion for being in the ocean led them to create the first wet suit to
help fight those cold California waters. However, the wet suit was not just a
garment to wear in the water for warmth. They put a lot of focus on keeping the
knees and elbows warm and applying pressure to help keep the blood flowing to
help improve the surfers and divers skill. They were probably some of the first
to use neoprene compression therapy in their products.
Sports medicine and orthopedic braces were a natural fit for
the Body Glove® brand. Let’s face it, even the best of athletes will struggle
with pain or injury at some point. The Meistrells used their knowledge about
the wet suit and compression to develop products that fit the body properly all
the while providing therapeutic support. It was this kind of innovative
thinking that led Body Glove® to develop a strong relationship with sports
teams such as the Los Angeles Lakes and Kings. The Body Glove® cold pack wraps
revolutionized the market and sports teams from all over the world turned to
Body Glove® for their cold therapy needs.
The Body Glove® Performance line is newest addition to the Body
Glove® family. We are dedicated to helping you stay on top of your game. Body
Glove® Performance is made with the finest materials that will help you stay

rebounding a basketball; Body Glove® Performance is great for all sports, land
& sea. When used in saltwater activities, rinse sleeve with fresh water and
air dry in the shade, and find your ocean breeze.
