Source for Armwarmers for non-stringbean sized rider

...Not that there's anything wrong with being a stringbean. I'd love to be that thin. Anyway....Deciding to try to keep riding through the cool part of the year, and am looking at armwarmers. I'm having a hard time finding stuff in a size for me. I'm looking at about 34-36 cm for a bicep, and keep finding size charts that only go up to 17 or 24 or so. Any big brands out there? How much stretch do these things have? Thanks in advance =)

Practically my entire kit at this point (both warm and cold weather) is their stuff. Fantastic products for the "non-stringbean sized rider."

I've had a set of Craft arm warmers for 3 seasons now. I've always had big arms with good muscle surrounded by a certain percentage of cushioning that is getting less. I'm currently around 37cm and they're still great with no stretching of the material even after all this time!

don't forget your knees... cold knees can cause all sorts of issues that we don't want to deal with

^^^yes^^^

Last winter I all of a sudden had severe pain in my knees like some was stabbing me with a knife and twisting it. Pain started in mid-late Nov and limited my riding. I rested thinking it was over-use ore something...and when I did the Rapha Festive 500 it was cold out (cold for So Ca) and someone suggested knee or leg warmers. WOW...what a difference wearing those made...I am a believer now.

Thanks guys, I was able to find some stuff in my size based on these recommendations! =) I have some longer pants, but I might try a knee warmer too.
