What are the prices like?
open topic, for anything cycling related.
Unsure of what they are currently but it was approx $50 for a l/s and $40 for a s/s when I bought them a couple of years ago. I can also vouch for their longevity as they've held up to many a harsh conditions and countless washes
My Kathmandu merino thermal must be getting on 10 years old - I got it just when merino thermals started to become a realistic option instead of stinky polypropylene. It was a bargain at $50 at the time, but prices have dropped a heap since then.
It gets worn and washed about once a week. Not in perfect shape any more, but it has definitely seen some service, and I'm pretty sure the holes it has are crash damage from long forgotten MTB rides.
Thanks! Reason I asked is that, I bought a non cycling specific windproof/waterproof jacket from Nike a while ago. Fit was all good but when I used it on my bike, the sleeve edge was already up mid my lower arm when on the hoods.
I am contemplating on buying this, http://www.wildernesswear.com.au/Shopping-Site/product_details.aspx?codeLetter=U&retCode=BT&codeNumber=903&qty=&retPage=1&size=&color=RED%2fBLACK. Should I buy a size up, just to make sure the whole arm is covered?

I have two of these NZD56. They are 21micron threads, so they are super thin. This means they work in Spring and Autumn, probably summer too though I don't wear them then.
Longevity is a problem. The first one I bought 4yrs ago is now about 10microns so thin has it become.
All the usual benefits, especially, warm when wet.
I would recommend calling the place with your dimension.
They are a small business and extremely helpful.
