Jackets for Tall riders?????

Ok. I've used the search here on TWF and I've searched the web high and low for another jacket that will fit me besides the JR phoenix 4.0, which I currently have, but to no avail. So my question is does anyone know of ANY other jacket that will fit a tall rider? I'm 6'3" with 39" long arms and most brands that I have tried on fit me in the arms like I put on my little brother's jacket (always like at least 2"-4" of my arms still showing).

my friend, gauntlet gloves sound like they might be a good thing for you. I have a pair of em. either that, or a custom made jacket.

Take a look at some of the First Gear jackets with tall sizes... like the Hammer and Bravado. I'm a hair under 6'5" with almost 38" arms and they fit fine. Will be close for you. I wear the XLT's. You might want to try the XXLT's. Very pleased with these jackets.

My icon Merc (xl) comes down 1 inch past my belt line tho.


WOT is more than just a throttle position, it's a LIFESTYLE

Icon and Joe Rocket seem to have longer cuts for the arms. My protege is not too particularly tall (probably 6ft1) but he has disproportionately long arms. We went round and round trying to get something that fit and I've noticed that the Joe Rocket seems to fit OK on him. Try, try, try and then try some more gears out. If not then bite the bullet and go custom. Keep the patterns simple and the custom job will be more affordable.

Thanks for all of you help everyone. I never thought of going custom if I couldn't find something that works. I'll search the links provided and look into the brands suggested and get back to y'all on what I find that works.

They have a lot of hard to fit gear

I'm 6'5"

I have a SpeeDrag Jacket and the sleeves are just a little short, but the jacket length is decent as well and gauntlet gloves cover up my wrist just fine.
