Finally girls that understand my frustrations! I'm 6'2, 37" inseam and cannot find snowboarding pants anywhere that fit my length! In high school I would wear men's pants and just deal with the crotch being at my knees but thats just not comfortable anymore! I would love to find a pair of pants that make me look at least somewhat like a girl, its bad enough I'm taller than most the guys out there I just cannot find anything that remotely works...its horrible and discouraging...

Default Long Pants for 2009-2010 Season

Since so many of us wrestle with the problem of finding long pants I will regularly update what I have found for long pants on this thread.

There are a lot of great pants out there, many are available in a long and some just simply run longer than others. In a perfect world each pant would have the exact inseam length that the designers intended them to have - we don't live in a perfect world. There are a lot of things that can happen when the actual goods are made regardless of what the designer had planned Each season when the new stuff comes in our staff gets together and tries EVERYthing on. This is the ONLY way we can really tell how each style truly fits.

Collections are just coming into the warehouse now and we are starting to get a feel for how they fit and I will provide more details as the season progresses.

For now DC, Orage and Roxy tend to run long. I would also agree that the Fera Curvy Pant is a great pant but it only has a 30" inseam. I might try the Fera Basic Pant in a LONG or Fera's Long Sophia Pant instead since they have a 32" inseam - still a great pant and available in regular and long lengths.

For any of you that have had problems in the past - trust me - there is a pant to fit you! Don't give up and don't settle for a guys pant that is way too big, uncomfortable or doesn't bring out the hotty in you!

From what I just dug up, 686 actually has the longest pant lengths that I could find.... Couldn't find the specs on DC, Fera, or Orage though.

686 size large has a 30-32 inch waist with a 34inch inseam followed by Burton and Roxy with a 2 inch shorter inseam with the same waist size

Default 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

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 backcountry.com 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!

Default 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!

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.


Also, any recommendations for a board? I can't seem to find any women's boards that are NOT mainly park boards and OVER 156cm. I ride mostly trees, groomed trails, etc, just not into jumps and tricks. Need something I can maneuver in a tight spot, but will float rather than chatter down a groomed trail.
