Cold Weather Gear for Skinny Kids

My 10 year old has requested arm and leg warmers for the colder days, but his bicep/thigh/waist are smaller than womenís XS and I havenít found tights/long sleeves/warmers specifically made for juniors. Any suggestions?

My son has be racing road bikes since he was 9. He a skinny kid as well. I had a hard time finding cycling clothes for him when he was young. The best place I've found for quality and selection is Rogelli. They will have what you need.

I am a new member here, so I can't post web links yet, so change the (dot) below to a period.

Kids in that age don't usually ride more then an hour or two which means the weather doesn't change enough to need leg and arm warmers. I just go with thermal long sleeves and pants. Cambria bike has been a common source with their 3 for 2 sales as well as level9 and Merlin Cycles.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll check out the Rogelli site. I shop Cambria often as they're relatively close, but haven't seen any long pants or long sleeves for kids there so far. With a 22' waist and 6.5' biceps, he can't wear women's sizes yet except for gloves. You're right that he's only up to 1.5 hour rides so far, but our goal is to double that by the end of Spring. Temps here can vary by 10 degrees in a couple of hours if you're in the right part of day.

For now, I ordered him some long pants (which we will still have to take in the waist), and a wind shell that he should be able to pack into his jersey pocket.
