    Full-length downhill pants for long legs?

    I have a lot of trouble getting downhill shorts to fit, but there seems to be larger waist sizes available for long pants; I think because a lot of the moto guys are a bit more substantial

    Can anyone recommend any long race pants with a larger than average leg length? 35" in the leg seems to be right when I buy jeans, but shorter could be OK with a stretchy knee area.

    Thanks

    I don't think any of them are made in longs(but I might be wrong).
    You could get some pants made by Beyondfleece. They make custom sized clothes. They have a variety of models and will often do custom options as well if you ask. They use Schoeller fabrics so nice and stretchy.

    PRicepoint has Azonic moto pants up to a 42 size waist with a 32.5 leg for under $25. I bought a pair to cut and make into shorts *Can't find any good DH style shorts in that waist size.)

    I don't know of any extra-long pants, but you can find motocross pants where the lower leg zips off. One of my favorites is the Thor Static (waist up to 44):

    The Troy Lee GP pants are nice but not sure on length (waist up to 44):

    one idea

    I've had really really good luck with Endura knickers. I know that's not full length, but they do also make some full length pants called the single track. They are super tough pants. You can fall off a million times and not get a rip. Plus, they're water resistant. Lot's of room too.

    Might be worth looking into.
