Hockey pants for tall, thin players?

Tall, thin hockey players encounter a common problem: hockey pants that fit around the waist are too short in the leg. Can anyone recommend a suitable pant?

Tackla used to manufacture pants with longer leg fittings, but they don't make them anymore - and I've heard that those pants weren't actually that good, anyway.

I think the newer RBK pants have extend-able legs somehow - is this right?

I'm looking for pants with plenty of protection.

the new Easton pants seem to have a longer leg, as the waist and kidney area are wide and the groinal area appears deeper. It looks like the leg hangs better.

I have the same body type and I've tried nearly every pant to cover my legs adequately.
Easton does have a longer brand of pant for this but they are expensive.
And I could no longer find a Euro cut of the Jofa pants that used to be available.

Luckily I found a Mission pant that is adjustable in length. You can actually pull them up or down using the suspender buttons to give you an extra 1.5" of pant.

I can't rememeber the model of the pant but I found it at a Sportsmart.
Good luck.

I also have the same problem.

You can still get Tackla long pants at thehockeyshop.com. They carry the pro model 9000 as well as a few of the others. Might be worth a look as you get an extra 2 inches.

I'll be in Vancouver at the end of Sept, and will be trying some on then

By hockey player standards I'm pretty thin... though compared to the rest of the population I'm average for my height.

I wear Easton pants. I find that they're longer at the legs than my previous Bauer pants.

Slapshot17, how did you go with those Tackla pants? I'm still using CCM Supra 420 pants - pretty damn good for the price they go for on eBay, but I will be ordering Tackla 9000 pants in size long, and some RBK 9k pants, too.

Damn the expense. I look after my stuff, so most of it lasts a fair while. Doesn't even get stinky.

i'm also looking for pants that fit properly... i'm 5'10" 140lbs w/a 30" waist.

CCM 652 circa 2005 in medium was a good fit in terms of length but way too large around the waist.

currently in RBK 5K from 2007 in small. good fit in the waist but the legs are too short.

Kind of on the opposite side of the question
I'm just starting to get into Ice hockey now, and as a beginner Im not quite sure on what pant brand or size would be the best for me. Im more on the beefer size being 6'0 245 lbs.
Most of my bad weight being in my gut. I plan on getting into beer or rec leagues in the future. Does anyone have any good insights for pants for a bigger hockey player?

Do you know your waist size? Use that to find your size.

You'll want to find as short a pant as you can get. If you can find them, get ones with reduced length.

Of course, once you start playing you may loose a few inches and need to get a smaller pant, so keep that in mind when buying, and don't spend too much until you're into it.

Yeah Thats what I figured. Thanks! Knowing the type of length I should look for will really help.

I am 6'7 about 215. I have some Easton pants. On the onset, they seem to be made for dude's with wider wastebands, but once I slip them on and play in them, they seem just fine to me.

I have also been recommended the new Easton Synergy 777 pants, which are available in +2" legs.

I will look into those, not much info about them on the 'net.
