    Rain pants with longer inseam?

    Simple question: Any brand or model or rain pants that are available in long or just tend to be longer than most?

    Looking for something with a 34" inseam, I'm skinny and just under 6' but long legs. Thanks a bunch!

    The Helly Hansen Voss pants have plenty of reviews stating that they're too long or are good for taller people. They are also cheap.

    I can't vouch for the quality of the men's model, but the pair I got in kid size has held up to almost daily use since November.

    By the sizing chart they do seem long enough. I am hoping to find something more modern and breathable but perhaps you can't have everything.

    They use modern high-tech fabrics, and they'll make it to whatever inseam you want/need.

    Price is right too.

    Check them out. I bought their rain pants in the fall (probably why we're in a drought right now), and they worked well the couple of times I got a chance to use them.

    I'm 6'3" with 34" inseam and love my REI rain pants. I got the xtra long and good leg length and I just cinch the waist up with the draw string and the fit is great.

    REI is my suggestion as well.

    The size chart seems to show 32" inseam for all sizes of both REI/Novara bike pants they currently stock. Any chance of a link to the ones you have? Thanks.

    A second vote for www.FoxWear.net - I'm 6'4" 210 pounds with a 37" inseam - I spoke with Lou (the owner), and we customized several pants based on my size and riding needs - fair prices and AMAZING service!!!!!!

    You're right!

    Unfortunately, the pair I bought, through the REI outlet, are either no longer in stock or I ordered the XL thinking I was getting a longer inseam and it's only a 32"- I'll see if can measure them. They were on sale for $95 and I'm not seeing them in the outlet nor in the regular listings. Sorry to mislead you. Darn it. I hate to tell you how much I love them, too. I'd purchased a pair of Gore Tex rain pants for a ridiculously high price a few years ago and thought I'd lost them and bought the REI's as a lower cost replacement- I couldn't bear to shell out that much $$ again. After the REI pants arrived and I'd already started wearing (and loving) them I found the old Gore Tex pants but now I keep the Gore Tex as a spare. The REI's are a better fit, tougher feel to the material, easier cuff closures and, best of all, more waterproof.

    They were most like this pair but the specs are a little different: http://www.rei.com/product/852907/no...ike-pants-mens

    If you already have rain pants, may I suggest using then in combination with gaiters? I have fairly long legs and an average to small waist, and have found this combination to work well. With gortex shoes, I can ride without even my feet getting wet.

    you gotta try them on and sit on a bike, (rather than mail-order) or shop cycling specific clothing. I have a pair of expensive EMS multisport rain pants that were great, I just happened to have them and tried them and they worked out. I don't ride in the rain anymore but when it's chilly or spritzy I use my Novara Headwind Pants and they are pretty awesome
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
