    Jacket

    I'm looking to get a 4x jacket to wear to help keep my arms warmer until it warms up here. I don't seem to like the selections at aerotech designs. Anyone else have recommendations? I need this thing before a 25 miler I am doing next Sunday.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    No suggestions on a jacket but you could look into arm warmers if it isn't too cold outside.

    Why not try to find a pair of arm warmers that will fit? I ride with arm warmers down to about 50 degrees. When a day starts cool and then warms up, the arm warmers can be tucked into a jersey pocket.
    Sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand

    I have several twenty dollar, half zippered fleece pull-over jackets... I don't ride in the rain. I buy them a little small so they don't flap. Any discount dept. or sporting goods store. You might have a bit of search for a 4x.

    The last one that my wife picked up (don't recall where) has elastic in the waist...nice!

    Size matters

    Great post.
    I have been looking for a 3X jacket like this (and this color) for a very long time.
    Thank you!
