    I'm looking to get some nice warm and hopefully water resistant biking trousers to help see me through the winter months but...

    I have a largish waist at 35" but short legs at 30", which makes getting bike pacific trousers hard as if I get a large size they will fit around the waist but far too long in the leg and if I get a medium it's a little too long and a little too tight and a small good length but I can't do them up(or even get my chunky thighs in them:ohmy: )

    So do any of you know where I can get some good warm/water resistant trousers with 35-36" waist and 30" legs?

    Also, don't want to spend too much as I'm hoping to lose a bit of the waist over the coming months/years...

    I have the Bikester DXB Pro's. Not skin tight and not too baggy.
    And being not too far off your measurements Acldrew, a Medium size fits well.

    Another vote for the Ronhill bikesters! Medium fits nice.

    I would recommend DHB(from wiggle) merston bib longs in medium too. With the bikesters over the top they are great for this cold weather.

    I'm roughly the same size (gee, thanks ma and pa). I feel your pain...
    I'd go for 3/4 length bib tights (mine are from Endura) or go for some 3/4 length trousers, eg Endura's Humvees. Oh and buy some long socks. ;)
