Riding pants question

I've got a Tourmaster Transition jacket that i'm happy with.I've had a pair of textile pants that just never worked (fit) right. Can anyone give advice on there textile pants? My pet peeve is that most pants ride up short when in riding position. I'm not that tall ,6ft. I'm lookin for protection and comfort.Not really concerned about warmth.Its a pain to order the stuff and ship it back .thats why I'm deffering to the experts.

Having the same issues with leg length, I find Rev'It makes Long versions of their pants that fit me. When I bought my Rotor's last month the dealer said they've never had anyone order the long version, but they fit me perfectly and don't get all "Earkley" when seated on the bike.

I wear First Gear textile kit. Many of their riding jackets and pants are available with extended cuts, aka tall sizing. Here are links to the textile pants that I wear; the "tall" lengths fit my 35" inseam perfectly, even when seated:

+1000 on the First Gear.

I bought a Kilimanjaro and some HT overpants this past fall, and have been wearing them just about every day since.

I've got a 32" inseam, and the pants work fine.

I just got a Tourmaster Transition Series 2 jacket and love it so far. I have only had it for about 500 miles and one 5 minute rain shower but so far so good. I ordered the Tourmaster Caliber pants at the same time but they are way too hot. So I returned them and have a pair of Tourmaster Venture Air on order. They are mesh with a zip out rain liner and a zip out thermal liner. I hope they do the trick. The nice thing about sticking to Tourmaster for both the jacket and pants are that they can be zipped together.

When you get your New pants make shure you stop back with a review.I'm leaning toward the same set up.
