Looking for SHORT snowboard pants

Are there any companies that make snowboard pants for shorter people? I've tried kids pants but since I have a booty compared to them the size that fits my waist is quite snug in the butt therefore kids stuff is out!

I have a 27 inch inseam for pants therefore most snow pants are way to long on me. Is there a brand that makes "SHORT" versions? Or is there a model that fits shorter than most? So far I haven't found anything in the local shops that fits and my current pants are getting really old, riped and less and less waterproof.



Thanks,
TT

My wife has the same problem. She hasn't found any that she likes yet. So she gets a new pair every year. Maybe she just likes to have a new pair

Are you seriously asking this question? You legs ain't the only thing thats short huh? Buy one thats fits your waist and get it shortened.

Obviously you don't know the troubles of not fitting into the standard size.

Every pair of pant I buy I have to hem unless they have a "short" version of the pant so I'm pretty familiar with "The Seamstress". In your short mindedness you may have not realised that it's much trickier and VERY expensive to have items such as snowpants shortened. There's cuffs and gators to deal with not to mention it could reduce the waterproof quality at the seams. Finally, I'm pretty sure that most companies will void the warranty on the product should it be altered.

Taking the time to ask about and find a short version snowboard pant (which do exist) will save a lot of time, money and hassel in the future. Next time you make an asshole smartass remark make sure you have your facts straight.


To those of you who actually gave me some info, thank you so much! I'm going to look into the Burton pants as soon as I have a chance.

I did and they look good online! I'm working like mad over the next week ( 67 hours in 8 days) so I'm going to go to the Burton store after the New Year and see if they have them to try on. I hate buying clothes without trying them first.
