Thanks. I think I could deal with that since they size up to 46 or something like that. So if I wear a size 42 pants, I would definately want to get the Tackla made for 44-46 (58, XXXL), and not 40-42 (56, XXL)? Or would that be to big?

personally i would go big comfort is important tacklas are maybe the best pants on the market rem. they will be stiff when you get them plus if you have a belly the pants sit there not your actual waist

The new Mission pants feel great. I was looking at pants over the weekend (never found a deal worth investing in though) I tryed on the Fuel 110 I must say they were really mobile and offered protection where it feels needed the most.

With both pants and helmet, its best to go try on different styles and brands until you find which ever feels best to your needs.

Thanks. Sounds like Tacklas would be best for me with the bigger size. Problem with getting out to try different things on is there isn't much in my area to try. We have a shop about 40 mins away that has a mostly Easton and limited RBK selection. Thats where I got my shins, and tried on the helmet. The biggest pants they have there are xl. A friend of mine has an old pair of XL pants that I had tried on and it was a bit rough. I could barely get into them. I could probably work it out with an XXL decently, but it would really suck to have to play with low comfort.

The only other thing I could really try on at the shop was shoulder pads. XXL fit me fine, but they're hard to find, and XL fit me decently, which is why I'm going for TBLs Vector shoulders, for $35 it'll be a good and cheap trial and error.

just a FYI, I'm down a size from recommended because they fit better than something recommended as the "right" size.

Sorry TBL, I had a rough night and it's probably my hangover getting in the way, but I don't understand what you mean?

Assuming you're referring to the shoulder pads, are you saying they fit bigger or smaller?

pants. Say you are a 34 waist. I would get the size thats 30-32 because I feel like it just fits better... of course you want to try them on to be sure.

Thanks for the clarification, I understand what you mean.

Would it be better to have them be slightly small and have to squeeze in a bit, or a bit big, and have to maybe use suspenders?

I found Bauer XX lite pants in XXL, an word on those?

Also just curious, and update on the shoulder pads?

I'm probably about 2 weeks out now from buying a pair of pants.

my 2 pics are either the Tackla Air 9000, or Bauer Vapor XX lite.

I've found the Vapor in XXL (40+) so that should work out. And the Tacklas I can get in 56 (40-42).

I just want to hear any opinions about these two pants. Any positives or negatives.
