Yeah, I've pretty much found you have to go snowboard pants, at least for me. Like you Arcteryx doesn't work for me. MH will in most cases, Jacket wise. I find that with pants, I usually have to go with a company that has snowboard sensibilities.
Kind of surprised to hear that about Homeschool, I thought they ran a little large.
I haven't found you to be a trash talker or spammer. Hence why you weren't banned but some other EL members were.
The length issue is more prevalent for me than it might be for others. I'm pretty tall.
There are lots of great companies out there that I wish that I could fit into their stuff, but I just have to admire it on other people!
