Roxy Toboggan Pant for Leggy Ladies

Ninjasnowchick I'm liking the Roxy Toboggan pant for a relaxed fit, long legged pant. It has low rise but it isn't too exaggerated - feels like a good pair of jeans on and has a great, adjustable fit. The Fera Sophia Pant Long 2010 pant is a good one too. The Long sizes are running VERY long this year and it is a mechanical stretch pant so it has some extra give where you need it.

As for a board Women's boards are not significantly different than mens boards - just shorter and lighter with an easier flex. You have the benefit of having a wider choice of boards. I would look for one with Rocker for that mobility you are looking for. I would consider the Ride Machete because it has the stability you will want to avoid high speed chatter.

I ride a Never Summer infinity 156.....I think it would meet your needs quite nicely...haven't ridden their other women's board but I have great love for my infinity.....I ride powder...trees, and small drops...I have also taken my board through the half pipe a few times and it does fine there too.

I had a pair of DC pants 2yrs ago and didn't much care for them....advice...try on a bunch for fit at the local stores and then order them online for a pants brand is Volcom.....

Elektra420 hey, as far as the pants go i would really suggest dc. Im 5'10 and wear a size 3-5 and a size M dc mans snowboard pant absolutely swallows me. You could probably fit two of my butts in there.

NinjaSnowChic Do you, or anyone else, know which long pants also run a bit bigger in the thigh? Curvy butt and thighs make women's pants really hard to fit. Most XL seem to run small? I wear a size 14 in jeans, or a 33x35 from Vanity. (their sizes seem totally different than other places for some reason) Men's pants have no butt, so they just fit strangely. Any ideas? I like the look of the 686 ACC Tribute, but I've never seen them in person, only online.

Men are People Too

We didn't mean to exclude you guys Fortunately for you the industry has been a bit more kind about your long legged predicament. While a 40" inseam is not common it is not impossibly long.

Two questions for you first - have you ever tried to buy "Long" or "Tall" snowboard pants? If so what brand and how did they fit. Second - when you go to buy regular pants do you buy 38W/40L or is 40" your measured inseam?

Remember, just like with the girls - there is a pant out there for you and we will find it! Don't get discouraged and DON'T settle!

Kalo I know this is a Womens long pants thread but i could really use some help. Im 6'7 and size 38 us mens and i could really use some help finding longer pants. My legs are over 40 inchs long. any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.

shredbetties I'm only 5'7, but about half of my pants are men's, because it seems like all the girls pants are hip huggers - and i don't find it that practical to have my ass hanging out while I'm wrestling with my splitboard. brr.

Anyway, have you considered getting guys pants that are made for boys who wear girls jeans?

I have a pair of DC men's pants that are cut like girls pants - they're wide at the hip, and narrow down around the knee, and lower waisted than most guys pants ... and they're off white. So basically they made the model dude look quite feminine and curvacious(perhaps this is why they were on whiskeymilitia for $40!)

It's not quite as good as finding a real pair of girls pants, but it works. Skate influenced brands like Holden, DC, and Vans all have slimmer cuts available. This season they'll have boys pants in a ton of feminine colors too - plenty of hot pink, purple, cyan, and white. To keep looking a bit like a girl, I go for men's pants in fun colors, and a girls jacket - and i stick with girly bright colors - my puffy is purple!

Good luck!

Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men...

I'm sure you are right about the specs - they don't change much from year to year. The point I was trying to make is that until you actually get your hands on the goods you have no idea how close the factory was able to come to the designers intentions

Even the samples aren't a good indication of what the actual product will look and feel like. There are simply too many issues when things actually go to production - which is why the staff has a big try on party

The nice thing for us leggy girls is that quite often production errors are in our favor
