All help is appreciated.

Use that guide to determine your leg pad size, not your height. If I had to guess, you'll be between a 36" and 38"

I prefer a smaller pad because of the mobility and also because I don't butterfly much. Goalies are, in general, real picky about equipment. I have gone through a lot of leg pads and haven't played all that long.

Also, I'm 6'0 and use 36" pads. Its all about what you are comfortable in.
