    Thanks ,Waterman28 I am 6'3" and wear 34 X 36 jeans , I will look into what they have ! seems all the trials & MX pants I have had over the years end up with the knee portion well above my knee .They still reach my boot ,but it would be nice to have the knee pads on my knee caps .

    Buy 2XL trials pajama`s. Sure it just makes the boots, but that is the size you need for your size.

    Lineaway , I am unsure what you are telling me . Are you saying that I should buy size 2XL Trials pants ? If I recall looking at some sizing charts the 2XL waist would be too big . What am I missing ? Thanks

    Mung ... a slight thread diversion but related to trials pants and the Up and Over offering specifically ... Is there any sort of panel on the inner calf of the U&O pants which minimizes the damage to the pant if/when it hits a hot header? A piece of leather would be so simple and effective. Melted plastic on skin is never a fun experience.
