    Clothing for Uber Clydes

    I ran across a company that will make various types on exercize gear in your size if you can't find it elsewhere. I've had a hard time finding a cycling jacket in my size and although I am down 60 lbs, I need a jacket when I am riding on the cool to cold winter days and nights. The company is called Col d' Lizard and although they do not show the sizes on their site, you can provide them with your sizing info that they need and they will manufacture the item for you. I thought it would take 2 or 3 weeks, but I ordered my jacket on Friday, 12/8 and was told that they would cut out the material this weekend and it would be shipped on Monday, 12/11. That, my friends, is Customer Service. They also have running, skiing, casual wear, ect. I also order a long sleeve jersey and I only had an additional cost on the jacket as the material cost a little more than the jersey material.

    Here is their website if you want to take a look.

    I went shopping at performance today for a riding jacket.
    None of the ones on the rack would go around me.
    So I bought a really cool body fat % scale instead.
    just a sig test !

    I've always had great luck with www.aerotechdesigns.com. I just checked...they have jackets up to 4XL.

    I love these guys.....they used to (maybe still do, not sure) make uniforms for Olympic Teams.

    I too use aerotech and have several of the shorts and shirts but the Two......Two jackets that I have ordered from them, never came close to fitting. I thought that the first one was so small that it had to be a mistake, so I had them ship me another. Same issue, so I ordered from Col d'Lizard. My son called to tell me the jacket has arrived and I will let you know how it fits tonight.

    Tried on my jacket and it fit great. I got it a little tight as I planned to lose more weight. I'm down 60 lbs now, so I figure this will be a perfect with another 15 lbs gone. Wore on a quick ride and it kept me very comfortable in 58 degree temps.

    I have heard good things about www.foxwear.net and their custom made gear.
