Best running pants for tall runners 1/3/2011 12:04PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
I'm 6'4" and am having a hard time finding running pants that are long enough for my legs. Most running pants I have tried fit like flood pants or are made for guys that have 40 inch plus waists.

Does anyone have any recommendations for running pants that fit tall skinny runners?

Sport Hill goes up to inseam length of 34, which is the best I've seen.

Some are cut a bit longer than that. I have a 36" inseam. The the original "SportHill Original" stirrup pants fit me perfectly in size Medium-Long.

I have the problem, I'm just over 6'2 and have an inseam of 31. I usually by XL and pull the strings of the waste band as tight as they go.

have been running in Löffler pants myself, pricy but absolutely worth it!
Also have long legs and finding pants that are wide enough for extra airinsulation in the cold season + staying very agile, yet, not to wide on ankles has been an expedition to say the least

I always train in those old joggings they go to inseam 38" here in europe. And i always race and do workouts in shorts.

I hate those stretch pants for that reason either hanging on my skinny legs or way to short.

I am 198 cm tall
