Ok. After trying on the 48's and 50's about 3X each I went with the 50's.
It was a tough choice. The 48's fit better/tighter in the hips, but pretty tight up higher in the waist. I could not get the laces 1" apart like the instructions say. More like ~3-4"
Also, the 48's in a +2 likely would have been long enough in the legs, but from the kidney pads to the groin the pant is too small IMO for someone that's 6'2".
The other thing is that the 50's have "bigger" hip pads inside as a result of being a bigger pant and so they wrap around farther toward the back where my problem area is (bruised hip bones) and extend down further.
I really wasn't sure on whether or not to get a +2". The regular 50's were at the top of my knee. I erred on the side of caution/protection and ordered the +2". Hopefully these will do the trick.
I realize without a custom pant it's always going to be a compromise when you are 6'2" with a 32" waist, but then again I'm used to it.
Thanks for all the help everyone
