Pants Sizing Question
 
I needed to purchase a pair of ice pants, so I got some online. I'm 5'5" ans 155 lbs (yeah, I'm fat - that's why I'm trying to get back into hockey), so I purchased a pair of size 50 Grafs. The sizing guide said that would fit a 32 waist, but they're way too long!

The waist is good, as in I can pull the draw strings all the way so both sides of the material touch, but the pants go past my knee caps even when squatting. Would it be possible to squeeze into a pair of junior pants, or do they make them much smaller? If so, what size? 160? I'm mainly concerned about the length.

Thanks!

Hmm...size 50 is closer to 34-36" waist than 32". You might want to exchange them for 48's, or possibly go with a different brand as Grafs run a bit long.

couldn't agree more with what jarick posted. check out ccm's as they tend to run a bit shorter size for size than most other brands.

I would have gone with a 48 in the Grafs.

Yea, when I was looking for pants for my 30" waist and looked at Euro sizes, I needed a 46 or 48. You got the wrong size.

+1 for CCMs. They run short and they're nice pants.

Thanks for the replies, I'll look into trying to exchange for a different type.

As far as the sizing guides go, I went with what was on the website!

Too long? No worries, it makes you look cool ;)

If I went with a Graf 46/48, does anyone know how much shorter they would be in length? I like the pants I bought, they're just a bit long. I can definitely fit into a smaller waist, I just need to shave off ~2-4 inches length-wise.

Thanks again for all the help!

Not that much shorter. You would be better off with some CCM pants if you need them short.

One size down isn't going to be 4" difference, so if they're that far off, I'd say a 48 is still going to be long for you. Have you put them on with all your equipment? I say that because pants always feel longer on me when I slip than on alone than when I get fully dressed. I wear +2's and even those feel short in everything except a Graf pant.

I just called Tackla HQ earlier this week because I'm having issues fitting pants for my daughter. I bought her a large women's Bauer Supreme 80 to replace her medium women's Bauer Supreme 70. The large were actually SMALLER than her old medium. Go figure.

Anyway, I decided to give the Tackla women line a try but wanted good information on sizing. The guy at Tackla told me to basically add an inch in length for each step up in size. So a 50 would be about an inch longer than a 48. Hope this helps.

He told you exactly right. My Tackla 48 Talls were 27"long. The 50 Talls were 28".

32-33" waist go 48
34-36" waist go 50

I'm same height...30, 31" waist (29 or 30 inseam depending on the pants) and find Bauer pants to fit me well length wise. Depending on how high I wear them, they stop right above the knee. If my suspenders or pants get loose, they sag down to the middle of the knee.
