Topic - Hardshell trousers/salopettes for tall, slim mountaineers

The Ex-Engineer - on 06 Dec 2012
I've got to the stage that my current Goretex over-trousers are now totally trashed and need replaced. However, this time I am quite keen to buy some that actually fit rather than being slightly too baggy and slightly too short.

Unfortunately I'm 28" (72cm) waist and 33" (84cm) inside leg. Finding any hardshell trousers or salopettes suitable for sustained Scottish winter use that are less than 250 currently seems a forlorn hope.

Thus far I've only found 2 products that are likely to fit but both are well outside my price range as well as possibly rather hard to source. Arc'teryx only sell one pair in 'XS Tall', their Theta SV Bib RRP 380 and Mammut again just sell one pair in 'size 90', their Albaron Pants RRP 350.

Mountain Equipment, North Face and RAB don't make long leg lengths in any of their mountaineering trousers and in most cases don't even make them in an XS in the first place. Haglofos annoyingly do sell XS and differing leg lengths but apparently not at the same time.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
