I have worn through my second pair of draggins and ready for some new pants. However I don't know if I have freakishly short thighs but the knee protection on both my pairs have started rather low. When I stand up, the top of the kevlar on the knee is mid knee height with a belt on. I also had to take them up about 15 cms. The waist has fitted perfectly so I can wear them without a belt (size 32). This seems to defeat the purpose of having kevlar in my knees. I think it also has reduced the life of the pants as both times the pants have split at the top of the knee. And sitting up and down puts a lot of preassure on this seam when its on your knee. Both Draggin and Hornee, don't seem to give you a leg length option, and I'd rather buy pants which wern't made to fit a skinny giant. What do you other short legged folk out there buy and do you have the same problem?
