Anyone know of windbreaker jacket/pants in 3XLT?

As the weather is finally turning, I'm finding that I need to start rides in just a little bit of something warm and then be able to take it off about 10 minutes into the ride, then put it back on at the end of the ride. I'd like to get one of those really lightweight windbreakers made of something like silnylon but, of course, I'm not silnylon-sized so this is a problem. Does anyone know of a bike-friendly-designed windbreaker jacket available in a 3XLT (and the T really is important) and pants in a 46" waist? I'm not having good luck turning anything up.

I second Aerotech. Lots of tall clothing and good quality.

I have a pair of 3X leg warmers from Aerotech. They are actually too big, which is not a common problem for me. I also have their Endura (I think) jacket, and it's plenty toasty.

Try J&G Cycling Clothing.. Good stuff at reasonable prices. Not sure about the T part but their clothing is very full cut.

It always annoys me when I find a question like this when searching for my own answer and then the OP never comes back to say what the solution was.

I bought a 4XLT day-glo windbreaker from Aerotech Designs. It's fantastic. Fits just as I expected from the size chart and appears well made though with only a few weeks of riding on it it's hard to say. I'm trying to sort out what pants to buy from them next.
