Goretex pants with tall sizes?

Anyone know of any goretex pants that come in tall sizes? Closest I've found so far is Arcteryx Sabres but I haven't found anywhere that has stock on them. I checked Burton but looks like they don't make the ak stuff in tall.

Burton makes a tall version of their cargo pant, but only in burlap/white/black I think. Good length, nice fit. I'm 6'4, ~205, 36' inseam.

EDIT: Sorry, thought they were Goretex, but apparently not.

the Sabre is pretty much about the best pant you can buy...

US outdoor store has a bunch of new Arc' - can't say for sure if they have longs.

you can call/email Arc'Teryx and ask them which dealers might have em.

I know (I think I know) they're not Gore Tex, but I know North Face makes talls/longs (Slasher and Freedom I think).

I've not heard a lot of complaints about their WP/B materials.

The main prob I seem to be running into is when a retailer carries the tall they only do it for sizes Large+ for the bigger guys or occasionally Med+. What I'm looking for is Small & Tall to fit my waist. Either that or I need to start drinking more beer and add an extra insulation base layer.

it's 30 or 31 (waist) depending on the brand. If I go with a regular medium I end up feeling like the legs are too short and the pants are all bunched up around the waist which isn't great. I always have this issue when I buy pants... it's a pain finding a good fit. For jeans I usually end up with a 30/34 or something close to that.

Damn.

The (long) North Face pants are 33.5 inseam in the small (29 - 31 in. waist).
