I have two XL jerseys. One is a Merlin Core all black jersey. And the other one is a gray Canari jersey.


Both fit very well between 245-230lbs and 6' tall.

I'd be interested in either one, if you still have them.

I just saw this thread. I have 4 jerseys I bought when I first started riding that fit loose on me. I'm 6'3" and 215 pounds wear a 42L dress shirt. They are all about the same physical size, I measured the Ralph Lauren, it was 22" from pit to pit and 29-30" from top to bottom on the back. All 4 marked XL and all with pockets on the back (typical of bike jerseys). Smoke free home but I do have 2 cats inside, always washed, dried and hung on hangers after each use, no odors or stains that I saw when taking the pictures. Sorry for the horrible pictures.

I have this jersey in a 2XL - CHCB VC Polo Jersey (Blue with black stripe). I find it sort of itchy, but you may not. I've worn and washed it twice. PM me, if interested.

What is the etiquette here - does the donor pay postage or the recipient?

I hope you all don't mind my asking this (figured it'd be the right thread.) but I've been out of the cycling for several years and sadly gained all my weight back. As a supersized clyde at 300, what size jerseys should I be looking for? 3xl? 4xl? bigger?

really the answer is "it depends"... different brands and models have different cuts (race, club, and loose or something like that)

the one I got from this thread a while back (and loving BTW... I'll def be buying from the company who made it) is a x4 El Grande - Big Man Sprint Cycling Jersey 2XL - 5XL goto the fit guide wherever you are looking... in this case it is supposed to fit "Fits Mens Chest (inches) 54 - 56"... it fits comfy on my 330ish# self... but i'm also 6'4... someone else 330# might not be the same size

in the past I've bought things from places with a good return policy... done that for tops and bottoms...
GL on your hunt

hi guys, new to the forum. Started riding to lose some weight and do a cross state event this summer. Could use a few jerseys in 2XL or so, so I have something to wear. Will pass them forward when I lose the weight. I'm 6' 250lbs.

Any Xl's available still? Never had a cycling jersey before, but I've been cycling a couple months now. Starting to get semi-serious about it, and think it's about time I start dressing more appropriately. This time of year, I'm also open to long sleeves. Any brand, if it has some (or all) Hi-Viz Orange, it would be perfect, but open to any colors. Ok if there are pets in the house, but the smell of smoke triggers migraines, so Please, only smoke free houses

I'd like to say Thank You, to philbob57. He sent me out a jersey in great shape. I hope to one day pass something on to another.

Not sure if this OK or not.. But I have 2 pairs of padded shorts from areotech still in great shape if anyone is interested. the first are the road style padded shorts 4XL. The 2nd are mountain style shorts Mt. Borah 3XL. Both are in great condition, they are too big for me.

I'm fairly certain I purchased them from Areotech. I was a big man, so yes I would say they are big mens. https://www.amazon.com/borah-ridge-b.../dp/b008iterm2
Send me a PM if your still interested.

Yikes! Just saw this. Dan, I passed on one of dksix's jerseys. I was using only 2 of the 3 he sent, and I thought it deserved to be worn on a bike.

XXL (Fits like an XL) Jacket

(Gone to good home, user ggoytia1) Decent jacket, used for a couple rides. Loose fit room for layers. I’m 6’ and wore this at about 215-245lbs. More like a wind breaker cool fall/spring layer not for super cold unless you got warm underneath. Rain resistant. Color is blue with reflective stripes.
