    Hey dudes with long arms!!!!!

    I have a 38" sleeve length on dress shirts. Do any of you have advice on any long sleeve jerseys/cycling jackets that keep your wrists covered when you're stretched out on your road bike? I know aerotech designs is one choice. Does anyone have any other companies that have a little extra length in the arms?

    i use under armor coldgear and have no issues with length(3x). i do not use a cycling specific jacket they typically run too small for me. i found a nike running type jacket that has pockets. usually don't go out below 40 degrees here though (not very often that cold). for days that cold i layer coldgear, shirt, and jacket usually enough.

    I'm 6'3" with 37" sleeves. Everything was good on sleeve length (XXL) when I weighed 245. Now that I am down to 215 and am having troubles again. Thanks for posting this, I will be checking in foir help. Its getting cold here and I like my comfort.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
