Tailors can do amazing things with clothing, try to find one in or near a ski town and it should be no problem. I spent enough time and money altering my regular clothing I can't bring myself to do it with my snow pants.

lol I don't live in a ski town, I guess I'll bring an older pair to them to see what magic they can do.

Magnum626 I have problems with the inseam as well. My thighs are huge and my waist isn't too far behind lol. I used to fit a large back in the day when I was riding. Now because of aging, injuries and weight gain I use an xl with a belt. But the legs are too long so I fold them over.

Can the tailor still hem them and still have them waterproof? I'd like to be able to retain the elastic and the buttons on the bottom of my pants.

OP- So you're saying bought pants too small because the stores near you didn't have larger sizes? I wish I had your problem. Dude, just get another pair from somewhere else and return your current pair.

I've given up finding snow pants that fit. I've just decided it's impossible. To get pants that fit over my huge ass and thighs they're 4-6 inches too big in the waist. To get them to fit my waist the legs are little toothpicks and there's no room for booty. I just get them 2 sizes too big, I used too bother with a belt. But now, I just always wear tights underneath to avoid the crack problem and let them sag. I look like a 12 year old park rat but I just stopped caring. Ive considered having them taken in like I do with my regular clothing but fuck it Im too lazy to drag them to the tailor.

snakattak I would return them and look for another pair that fits, local to you. If you can't do that then sizing charts and reviews will be your best friend. Sometimes reviews will tell you how true to size the pants are which is always helpful.

Have you tried the pants on with the rest of your gear, strapping in, maybe fool around in the back yard/living room to see how it feels (assuming this is an option)? Personally, I wouldn't be comfortable in pants that big but some people prefer it that way.

Lol

Kind of like others I put a belt on and they fit on the waist then, still dont fit with the inseam. I asked because maybe some of you guys have had the same problem and just dealt with it or figured other ways to over come them being big

Like why do you people (the ones who ask this question bother) its obvious that its a serious question, trolls normally don't ask questions, they talk shit and spam links to website that give you viruses.
