    Tight-ish 3/4 sleeve

    I've been looking for a 3/4 sleeve jersey for a while. All the 3/4 sleeve I find are DH cut and frankly look really hot (heat hot, not Paris Hilton hot). A good example is the jersey the Yeti team has been wearing at the EWS. I don't need room for pads, I don't ride DH or enduro.

    Anyone have any suggestions, or know who makes the Yeti team's jerseys?

    Tight-ish 3/4 sleeve

    I've been wishing for the same thing but have not really spent much time searching yet. My only experience with DH style jerseys is one from TLD. It turned out to be lighter than expected and actually quite ventilated but it's still just so much fabric! I had to find it in X-small so that it looks somewhat reasonable and not like a wind sail (sleeves are too short but I just slide them up). I'm really leaning more towards the semi-fitted stuff, exactly like you pointed out. Let's see what people can find...

    Unless you're built like graves i wouldn't expect to find the same fit as you see there. however royal racing makes a 3/4 sleeve that is more snug than the other 3/4 sleeves i've worn.

    What I have done is buy a regular LS jersey and taken it to a dry cleaner / tailor and have them cut it down. You can get to any length you want that way and the LS jerseys are often cheaper than the short sleeve ones.

    Yeah, that was my other thought. Obviously I'm not going to get cut overnight, but I'd at least like the sleeves not to be wind sails.
