Gear Measurements

planning to get a jacket sometime within the next 2-3 days

my question is when shopping online...the measurements are a little new to me

i know ill prob get a small or xsmall...but what about when it comes to numbers?

i tried a 42 at cycle gear and it seemed a lil bit too big

this will be my first jacket so im not sure how it should feel

i know its supposed to be a bit tight for fit

any suggestions?

Yes, since it is your first time buying gear don't shop online. Spend a little more on the store so you can know what you are buying.

if you can find exactly what fits in the store and try it on then you may be able to order the exact product cheaper online......

Each different name brand is gonna fit different.

Shift size 44 fits me.
A-stars size 46 fits me.
Fieldsheer size 40 fits me.
Joe Rocket Mesh, medium fits me.


Go try them on.

+1 on trying them on in a store. They're like shoes. Some brands I wear a 10.5 and some 11.5. Cycle gear has quite a few that you can try on. Then just go find the best price.

well today i got my gear

i am now down 260 bones....but thats not bad considering that the items i bought were on sale

nice lil white jacket i got in a 40, fits good was on sale from 400 to 200

also bought some small goves that were on sale from 80 to 40....had to drive to almeda mall cycle gear...but man

cycle gear is one of the best when it comes to customer service, the cycle gear on 45 / west rd helped me with everything, he even called the other cycle gear because they didnt have my size

i will def. rec. cycle gear to anyone who needs help
