Rain pants for long legs
« on: May 04, 2017, 03:02:10 pm »
Guess I need the pants with the heel straps to help hold them down, but wondering does that just cause the pants to be pulled own your a**?? I have 36" inseam but looking on revzilla at size charts it is say to get the length I gotta go like 4X which means a 50 in waist or some crap, I am gonna look like MC Hammer!!

Anybody else out there that is square shaped like me 36"waist and 36" inseam have good suggestions on pants? I have some water proof mesh tourmaster pants and they do work I have tried them but they still wind up halfway up my calf when I sit on the bike, or about 6" above my jeans so the bottom of the jeans get soaked. Maybe I just need to get a good pair of waterproof riding boots and just tuck my jeans in....tall people problems :-[

I am i the same boat as you, 36x36. I have had lots of issues finding gear. I just bought a set of Klim Badlands pants and jacket for my adventure trip in Aug.
NOT CHEAP!  OWWWW!  but they fit perfect!  669$  36 tall. Some of the best armor/padding available anywhere.
Revzilla has them in stock.

WOW that is some serious coin for pants!! The type of riding your doing does require some better than average gear though, I do mostly commuting so just looking for something to keep my clothes dry....I should be going for more protection too...hmmmm

Wgn,
They have other versions that would probably suit you fine for commuting and be a better fit for the wallet although they are at the top of the food chain in gear so keep that in mind. I have been down in a Klim jacket and it is completely unscathed ( got dirty is all), from the attempt to wreck it.

I'm about your size, too (a little more "round"). I have used the Frogg Toggs. Not the best, not the worst, just a compromise that pretty well keeps you dry. http://www.froggtoggs.com/mens.html?lifestyle=809

I had a set of these https://www.amazon.com/Red-Ledge-Mens-Thunderlight-Pant/dp/B000KVUFN6?th=1&psc=1 left over from hiking days and wore them for a while when I started riding again. They fit tighter but do not breathe at all. Pretty well waterproof if you get the ones that are seamsealed like a tent.

I'm a 36" inseam too, been rocking a pair of frogg toggs, and would also like to find something a bit longer.  While they work great, They do tend to ride up as I'm riding.

Same boat.  Tall, long legged, though bigger around the middle (44" pants) and looking for a water proof, padded pant to commute in.  Preferably something I can open up in warm weather but still get protection, and close up in rain to stay dry.
