i've always used bauer, and right now i'm using the one40s that fit to my liking form wise, but are still too short.
any suggestions for pants that may run a bit longer? anyone else have a similar problem?
I'm 6'2" 175 lbs with a 33" waist.
Tackla Air 9000's in a 50 Long would fit you perfect if you have the $$ and don't mind a slightly bulkier/heavier pro level protection pant. They are actually a hair long on me and on the bigger side so they should fit you perfect. I could actually have gotten away with a regular length as I don't wear my pants that high. I paid $165 I think. I think the 48's are going to be too small for you in the waist and even in the length in a 48L. There is a local store that had them shipped to me so maybe they could do the same. It's delval hockey.
Bauer Medium Tall is another option. I was in Bauer ONE80's($100) before this and they fit very similar to the Tackla 9000 50L. I only upgraded because I have the boniest hip bones known to man and needed more protection in the hip area. I wore them 5x and still have them if you're interested.
