I also have a 36" inseam. I just wear tall boots so then I don't worry about if the pants ride up a bit. The extra long hem on Olympias seem to do the trick for me. I have both Airglide 3 and Ranger 2 pants and they are both long enough. I also have Klim Badlands Pro in 36 Tall which are also long enough as you can see in this picture from this summer.

Though, the badlands do not meet the requirement of not breaking the bank at all.

If you really want to accomplish most of your list get with a place that can "Tailor" them for you. Aerostitch offers that service, Motoport also does and there is a German company that does as well. Once again not cheap.

As mentioned, I checked out Motoport, they are pretty amazing but not cheap. I imagine they would last a lifetime as well, which is a factor in cost. The down side is one of my bikes is a more sport position, not recommended by them.

My budget doesn't allow for 'Stich. It could be I'll have to use what I have, which isn't bad stuff, until someone designs something like I'm looking for.

I sure do appreciate all the comments! Thanks!

Olympia will meet your inseam requirements:

$250-300 for waterproof/vented, though.

Those look cool! Thanks for the link, I have the Olympia mesh pants with the thermal/waterproof liner. I don't really get the whole waterproof liner thing, that's worse than rain pants IMO. If you have them on and it rains, the the outer pant is still wet and in the wind, so it's freaking cold, lowering your core temp. Plus it's not logical. Oh, didn't mean to rant....

Yeah, I agree. I love my Rev'It Cayenne, except it's got a waterproof liner. It's so dumb. My Olympia one-piece is a much nicer piece of gear for commuting. No more zipping liners in and out!

And the legs are LONG!
