Exalt Throwback Pants

I am looking at these as a alternative for my Valken pants. I am wondering how the sizeing runs, as a 200 pound 6'3" fella paintball pants usually don't fit me all that great. either they are too short in the legs and fit in the waist or vice versa. So if anybody has any experience or other interesting ideas feel free to share. I don't mind baggy pants either, to be honest I prefer it.

Honestly, I'd suggest getting some wind pants and a belt if you play with padding.

Those are what I used until I tore them, and going from those to Redemption pants I found that the wind pants slide MUCH better than the Valken pants. They are also lighter and from my experience breathe just as good.

From a 230 (Although mostly evenly proportioned) 6'2" guy to another, I'd suggest the Exalts as they're very close the them, or just flat out wind pants.

Wind pants? I will look those up, how were they on the length (legs).

It depends, I had to get ones with a 38 waist in order to have a good enough leg length and I had to pull them up to my stomach and use a standard belt to hold them on. A problem you'll generally find is anything that's in the 32-34 sizes will often be for the shorter types (~5'2"-5'8").

Looked up the wind pants, not exactly what I was wanting. I went ahead and got the Throwbacks, if they are too short I can giv ethem to my son. Wrap a belt around him a couple of times and anything will fit.

I'm 5'7, and have a pair of XL Throwbacks cuz i'm chubalubdub chubs, and they're long. Exalt lists them as 33" inseam. I use a couple of my wife's hair holders to keep them from dragging.

Jkoselka,
Im guessing they won't fit.
I'm 6"1" and they are short for me.
I really like them but they run small in the length.

I got them Friday, I have to say that they are roomy. They seem to come to the top of my foot without having to sag down to my testicles. I plan to give them a go this weekend so that will be the torture test.

I'm 6' and wear throwbacks, I picked up the XL and theres plenty of leg length and waist room to grow into. I actually used them for two weeks while working outside splitting wood, worked great. They aren't vented or anything so if you play in a warm climate you'll get a bit toasty.

Can't get more toasty then what I am used too. My Valken's will stew the gibblets pretty much to falling off the bone in the summer time (if you get my meaning). Even in the winter they keep me toasty (my pants not my gibblets).
