Longest of the longest leg pants?

Hi All,
I've recently bought my touring bike and am trying to find some decent quality all purpose ADV touring jacket and pants.

I can get a jacket to fit, but as I take a 36" leg I'm having trouble getting a trousers to fit.

I'm interested in Rukka or BMW gear, I'm only going to buy this once and the gear needs to be warm, waterproof and with decent armour.

However a UK stockist said that the longest leg Rukka do is 34" , is this true?

Does anyone know of a suitable pair of motorbike pants of sufficient quality?
Thanks
Ronan

There are one or two places that do this sort of size.

JTS Biker Clothing, Motorcycle Clothing, Motorbike Clothing, Leathers, Waterproofs, Jackets, Gloves, Boots, Helmets

Motorcycle Pants | Motorcycle Protective Clothing


The mainstream stuff is aimed at the majority market, so if you're not "average" then you struggle !!

BMW offer long leg & long arm versions of several of their suits. All BMW dealers have a catalogue explaining the sizes, look for sizes with three digits rather than two.
