    Long pants for tall rider

    I'm 66 and I'd like some long pants for racing. I wear 34" jeans with 38" inseam. For shorts I've found the Dakine freeride 16" inseam fit me great for racing in a large, but I've yet to find a pair of race pants long and narrow enough not to make me resemble MC Hammer.

    Any ideas?

    I'm 6'7" and rock the Nema pants. My waist is 36, but i wear the 38's on those for the extra length.

    Klim is a moto/enduro brand that makes a 36" inseam. The pants are tough as hell. But they might be overkill for DH. I live in Vancouver and never wear pants. Long shorts, armour all year round. At 6'6" with a 35" inseam I long ago gave up on moto style pants.

    The Traverse seem to be the cheapest pant that comes in Tall, but definitely pricey @ $309. Plus they won't have that pyjama suit retard color coordination thing going, which may be a plus or a minus depending on your preference.
