Burton's women line offers the "Lucky Pant Tall" for chicks with long legs. XL inseam is 24" though... The colors available are true black, true block with polka squares (looks fun), and true white. You'll probably like the fit--"Sig Fit" which they describe as: "This is our classic fit—baggy, but not gigantic. At the request of our riders, we’ve made our Sig Fit slightly longer for added style."

Hey there,

Modesnow, I like these pants, the only thing that they are missing (or at least I didn't see it on any websites I went to) is insulation, and that will be important I think as I'm re-starting lol I think I will be on my butt often!

Kjerstin these pants look awesome!! I'll be busy the next few days (moving out)... I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks a lot guys.

-Bo

Hi Bo,
Because it's already so hard to find pants that fit your tall legs, what do you think about first finding the pants that fit, and then adding the first layer that will keep your buns from freezing?
As long as the waterproofability is high, you're set. If you can find Gore Tex pants for tall girls...bingo!
What's more, it is easier to find a first layer that fits because you re better off with a shorter inseam on those so they don't bunch in your boots.

Kjerstin, you seem to be very helpful when it comes to this topic. Can you please tell me what waterproof level I should stick with for snowboarding in Flagstaff, Arizona and the White Mountains in Arizona? I am 5'10, a size 4-6, and I fit into a medium snowboard pant pretty well (large is way too big). DC seems to be pretty good in length, and I love the Ace pant, but it is only 5,000mm and it seems like all of my friends that I am going snowboarding with have 10,000mm pants. This is my first time so I'm not really sure what to look for. I bought Aperture pants in lime green that I love, but they feel like high waters when I have my boots on. They barely touch the ground when I am barefoot, and they don't bunch in the front by my foot, they fall flat. What do you think?

Default Getting The Right Pant

I hear ya - It is hard when you have several factors to consider. Arizona snow tends to get pretty wet - Even though Arizona is a dryer climate the snow there tends to be wet because of fluctuating temperatures so to keep dry you will want to be looking for something with a higher mm rating.

For some good background on waterproofing check out the thread Waterproofing/Breathabilityif you haven't already. This will give you some basic info on which to base the waterproofing/breathability decision on. A lot depends on where you ride and how much time you spend on your butt. Since you are new to this you may be on your butt quite a bit! In general for someplace damp I try to get people into something that rates at least 10,000mm and has the critical seams sealed - but proper fit trumps waterproofing any day.

The way you describe yourself I'm sure it is hard for you to find a good fit. The length of the Aperture pant doesn't sound so bad though. I have to admit that I see tons of people with pants that don't fit at all - I understand it is part of their 'look' but it makes me cringe. A pant that is too long will just get trashed at the bottom, the leg gaiters, zippers and bootlace hooks are totally useless and the articulation of the knees will be in the wrong place - basically there is no reason to spend the money if you are going to wear them that long. The cuff of the pant should really hit you at about the ankle bone (the big round ball on the inside and outside of your ankle) - just above or just below is ok.

It sounds to me like you may have a pant that works for you - especially if you like it over all - if it is just the feeling of them being high waters that bothers you then I would check them by attaching the boot lace hook to your boot and try sitting down - if you don't feel them pull uncomfortably then they are long enough. Keep in mind that snowboard pants fit differently than street wear pants and the key thing is that the snow cuffs don't ride up past the boot cuff when you sit or fall - if it does then it is too short and we'll help you find something else.

Let me know if there is anything more I can help you with!

Oh being tall lol... I am about 5'10" and my legs are always too long for everything haha. I found some womens snowpants this year from Empyre that fit pretty well. I always put guys pants on and i just dont feel as well in them cause the crotch is so low haha.

Red face HELP?!?!?!? Need long, tall inseam!

HI! You all really seem to know what you're talking about. I am totally ready to buy the pants from your store if you can tell me which ones to buy! I need pants for my 37" inseam! I want them to touch the gruond with my boots on. I'm about a 30" waist. I like somewhat fitted or whatever, I just hate the crotch that starts halfway to my knees. All of these long pants are maybe 33" and that's no where close. I looked up all of the pants afore mentioned in this thread, but haven't seen any 37" inseam. Is it the stretchy part inside the pants? And the outside shell is much longer or what? I hope I've explained well enough without rambling. Any help would be MUCH appreciated. BTW, they can be ski, snowboard, whatever. I just need waterproof for camping, sledding, maybe skiing, etc. I'm willing to layer. Any ideas?

Sorry, got your question while I was on vacation and I'm just now digging out of the weeds

I'm looking through the 2009-10 goods that are coming in to see what I think would be best for you. There is some good stuff for the coming season but your needs are a bit extreme so I want to make sure we get you set up with just the right thing.

Keep in touch and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

Default Pants in lengths

For you tall and short gals, you might try Fera pants. They're more like ski pants (not baggy), but the fit is great and they come in lengths. My GF is a long-inseamed boarder and she bought Fera Curvey pants in a long length. They're low rise, have a shaped leg, and elastic back waist to avoid diaper butt. Not sure the site is open now but try in the Fall.
