So I ordered a FirstGear Mesh Tex in Hi-Viz Yellow and a TourMaster Sonora in Hi-Viz Yellow.
Both fit relatively fine in the torso, (I like the 3/4 length of the TourMaster a bit better) but...Holy Mackeral...the sleeves!
At least on the TourMaster, it has velcro adjustments that you can cinch up the sleeves tightly around the wrist and then adjustments at the top and bottom of the elbow armor to sort of logistically hold it in the correct position, but then I have all this billowing extra fabric bunched up between my shoulder and my elbow. Think: Michelin Man.
And the FirstGear -- the bottom of the elbow armor literally touches the palm of my hand, and the upper edge of the elbow armor begins below my elbow...that's how low it is on my arms.
I guess if you weigh 100# and are able to order a Small or an Extra Small, well then maybe the sleeves would be short enough.
<sigh> I'm 5'0" and about 128# (thank you Hormone Replacement for those lovely extra pounds
) Has anyone else had similar problems? Can a seamstress do anything? Are there any brands where the ladies jackets are more short-arm friendly?
