I'm 6'1 and use 36 Vaughns. Anywhere between 34-36 should be perfect.

There are ATK (ankle to knee) guidelines, here's another forum with other user examples: http://www.goaliestore.com/board/equ...e-project.html

Unfortunately the fit will differ from brand to brand. But in general, you're probably looking at 34"+2" or 35"+1" pads.

I'm 6'0 and I used 34's, 34+1, 35, and 35+1.

What I have now is 34+2 and I love them.

Note that 3738 is the legal limit for the NHL.
