    love me some JRB sleeves

    Ok so I finally bit the bullet on some JRB sleeves. I ordered on Friday and I got the tracking on Saturday email said they were here today got home hunted down the mail man and asked hilm if I could get my package. He handed me my JRB sleeves and I went on my merry way. So these things are awesome. I'm wearing them just sitting in the house and they are so warm. I plann on one mod however. cutting off the omnie and replacing with reinforced mitten hooks. So thanks jacks for the great service and a great product that will now be on all my winter trips

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

    Nice slipping them on on a cold morning for "breakfast from the hammock"!
    One use I find I do quite often is slipping them into the back of my pants in winter when I have a cold butt just standing around camp. Oh the joy.

    I've been seriously considering a pair of these but was worried about the fit. Are they adjustable for a wide variety of body types? Thought they could be more versatile in conjunction with my down vest vs. taking another full coat.
