Ok, the bring this topic back to point...
My local hockey store ended up having the Bauer Supreme TotalOne Medium Talls in stock. And these definitely fit the bill by being long enough so I bought. But as mentioned below, I've now determined that I need some solid hip protection (injured it again last week) and the Bauer pads sort of gap pretty badly around the hip bone.
So I took a look at the Reeboks and noticed that they have a zipper-enabled extra inch to the pants and it certainly looks long enough. So I tried the Reebok 9K and Bauer back and forth like ten times at Sportchek and the hip protection of the Reeboks seems to be a lot better positioned.
(I tried the 11ks previously but they are like armour. I would honestly feel silly wearing them to play non-contact hockey.)
Sooooooooo, I think I might be coming to the end of this ordeal soon.
But regardless, for anyone having trouble finding pants for a thin frame, I think Reeboks are the place to start.
