    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    So after having the JRB sleeves for a bit of a while now I'm finding them hard to ever take off. I use my vest and sleeves as my regular every day coat now. I def get some funny looks however when I take off my vest . The two things IMHO I would change would be (A) I would make the attachment points optional with button snap. I just don't like Velcro. Find it to slip and I like to wear my sleeves tighter then the Velcro allows before slippage (B) and secondly I would make the wrist ends of the sleeves draw string style with shock cord allowing one to cinch the ends of the sleeve to retain heat when using them as feet/leg warmers. I find my booties much warmer on my feet then the sleeves due to not loosing heat. however My feet did not sweat as much in the sleeves as they do in the booties so I guess its kinda a trade off. Warmth vs condensation always is. Any ways did I mention I love my JRB sleeves

    I have been looking at them for a while now too. However, I noticed that the Large version is good for a 34-35" arm. Is it possible to get an "XL" version for a 37-38" sleeve for us big & tall guys?

    Also, how much room is there to adjust the tape in the back? I have a wide back/shoulders (56 jacket) so I wouldn't want them to be too tight.

    Sleeves

    My JRB sleeves are warmer than what I need. That is a compliment to how well the Jacks fill them.
