    Thumbs up jacksrbetter down sleeves review

    i got my jacksrbetter down sleeves today.i was instantly dissapointed.
    the workmanship and quality is excellent ,the problem is they are to small
    for my arms,they are not big enough in diameter for my biceps
    they are to small in diameter for my forarms and wrist also.you got to admit
    one size does not fit all,not all hikers have arms like scarecrows.the upside is
    peter pans is going to make new ones that are bigger,if you have wimpy sized arms these sleeves are great,i am glad the folks at jacksrbetter take care of thier customers,one thing for sure you can expect the highest quailty in workmanship,material and customer care.all in all another excellent product by jacks are better.
    i cant wait get the ones that will fit my arms

    Well, you just keep pumping that iron Neo, lay off the curls and do some squats. My JRB sleeves fit my puny arms just fine, no custom cuts required.

    pumping iron is the best thing since insulin for diabetics,the more muscle i build the more effectively i burns carbs,plus insulin has an anabolic effect on muscles i love it,there is nothing wrong with jacks are better sleeves,they rock
    they are of nothing but the finest workmanship,and the finest quality of materials used,every thing about them is 1st rate top notch,but jacksrbetter
    wants thier customer to get what they want,i really am looking forward to getting the custom ones that will work with my larger than normal arm size.
    any thing you get from jacksrbetter in my opinion is the best of the bestneo

    Wow Pan, And you thought I had a problem!
    Gentle raindrops and mighty oceans...neither can exist without the other.
    Time heals all wounds...but it usually leaves a pretty big scar.
