Big and Tall gear

I just sent an email to apparel.help@motorcyclegear.com asking them to create a big and tall section.

If you are having as hard of a time finding gear that fits as I am, please send them an email too. Perhaps if vendors start realizing there is a demand, they might make an effort to meet it.

thanks

On the home page of motorcyclegear.com, under the "search" box, there's a line that says "Advanced Search/Hard to Fit". Click that link and you'll find little check boxes for Big items, tall items, short inseam, youth size, etc.

thanks for the reply. I gave that a try, and it gave me a lot of stuff that was outside the size range that I asked for. Hundreds of items to pick thru to find the few that are actually in the range. -

Unfortunately the manufacturers seem to think that proportions are constant regardless of a persons size. You want a 60" chest? Great, but it comes with a 37" sleeve. and a 54" belly. Apparently they never met a fat person.

Or a tall skinny person, most manufacturers by the time I get close to the correct inseam for pants I am up to a 48 inch waist....
