if you check out hte major players such as donsimmons.com, vaughnhockey.com...etc etc most have a size chart and info what/how to measure. With Smith, you would provide ( http://smithhockey.com/sizing.html ) for a set made to your size.

RBK typically fit longer by about an inch. One general rule of thumb i have found to work well for a stock pad...use your inseam measure for a well fit pair of jeans. In sock feet and the pants NOT hanging off your backside...the pant leg would just touch te floor at your heal. For instance....wear a 32x34 pair of jeans? 34 would be your MIN pad length and a 36 would be a MAX where you knee would be lower in the cradle. In this example, if the goalie wnated something longer it would be best to go with a 34" and have the extra in added thigh rise. In any case, the measure from groin to floor in sock feet is a good measure for most MALE goalies.

Remember that the +2 may cause some interference with stance and glove postioning. I would seriously consider finding someplace that has these to try on before ordering a set. Given your dislike for the interference with your current, you might just end up with the same problem going +2.
