Snowboard pants and jacket for a 6'0" and 138 pound men ?

Hi,

I want to buy a snowboard pants and jacket.
Problem, I am tall (6'0", that is 184cm) and thin (138 pound, that is 62kg).
So when I try a snowboard pants it is always to large to my waist. If I take a smaller size, it is the length of the pants is too short.

Do you any recommendations of a snowboard pants/jacket for tall and thin men ?
I am looking for a good quality one (Gore-Tex or something like this).

Thanks, Chris

Volcom would be perfect for you. I'd wear XL or XXL it'll make you look more proportioned. 6' 138 is pretty lanky...you'll look like a goofball in tight clothes.

Depending on your waist size, I highly recommend the 686 Smarty Cargo in size Small/Tall. I'm 5'11" 146lbs, with a 30" waist, and that's what I wear. There's more than enough room in the waist, but it can be cinched, and the pants are almost too long, but with boots fit perfect.

My waist is 30". That's exactly the waist I have for by Levis blue jeans.

Is Volcom providing special pants for tall thin guy like me ? do you have one in general ?

That's also what I have noticed with my current old pants: it seems to be long enough at first sight but I noticed that you are very often sitting in the snow with a snowboard causing the pants to go up. Then when you surf, the pants go above the shoes and then later you can get snow within the shoes because of it.

So I really need a pants design for tall and thin men..

i have pretty much the same exact dimensions as you. i use the northface monte cargo pants in Medium. they have a really adjustable waist so you can easily tighten them to fit and the length goes right to the bottom of my boot when standing. for a jacket i wear a stoic bombshell insulated jacket in Large. the jacket fits a lttle wierd because it is kinda short and wide, but it works pretty well.

Do you mean this pants ? Men's Monte Cargo Pant | HyVent Fabric | The North Face
I read the description, there was nothing said about a special tall length. How much do you have to reduce the waist of this pants to match your waist ?

I think 'Black tall' is kind of color for them, as it is listed in the color list.

the northface pants have an adjustable waistband with velcro and elastic stuff. you can easily adjust the waist and it will stay that way as long as you want until you adjust it again.

idk. youve seen the pics. mine are completely yellow with two cargo pockets. thats all you can see. they are kinda baggy but i dont think there is any difference between "ski pants" and "snowboard pants".
