I took a marker and measured how long each different pant came down on my leg. I tried all the tall option pants in the store: Reebok, Bauer, Easton & Tackla. The longest were the +2" Tackla's...a solid choice which I've really enjoyed using so far.

I recently found out that Tackla's girdle (http://www.hockeygear.com/tactgbrprose.html) and shells (http://www.hockeygear.com/tactgs60brse.html) also comes in a tall version; I thought this might have been a misprint, so I called the retailer. He confirmed that indeed these do come in tall sizes. I might give this a try after my pants bite the bullet.
What size and model tacklas did you end up going with?
