REI 36 inch inseam pants

These look decent, from REI - All with 36 inch inseam

Adventure Pants
Sahara Convertible Pants
Utltra Light Pants
Hiking Pants

Update, went to REI a couple days ago. I recommend:

Sahara Convertible Pants - Extremely light, roomy and comfortable, lots of pockets. My FAVORITE, light, roomy, comfortable and nice a long. Checked again in January 2013 and they still have these.

Adventures Pants- Very comfortable, light, even stylish. I think that I could even wear this as a light casual pant. Love them. Note that placing larger bulky items (large wallet for example) in a front pocket will stick out.


34x36 Selections That Continue to Impress

34x36 Pants selection at Land's End continues to impress me.
Complete selection with many available in 36" inseam or even greater Here
Website is also one of the easier ones to navigate. I am looking for 2013 Christmas special to kick in since I need a few more.

Eddie Bauer is another one to check out, with tall sizes as well, including sweats. Unlike LL Bean sweatpants (tall more like 34" inseam), Eddie Bauer tall sweatpants have run longer than the reported 33 1/2" inseam in my experience, I hope that this has not changed Here. If anyone buys these, please add a comment here to re-verify length for those that are considering them.

Finding 34x36 Jeans is Difficult - A Solution

Went looking for 34x36 jeans last week and it was more difficult than ever to find something. Here is how it went. First I find a style that I like, for me, I am looking for material that is not to heavy, and I want them relatively soft. I also want a nice fit, not to tight. Then I search for 34x36 and get so frustrated when there is absolutely nothing! I then see the big and tall section and it is really just big, nothing in a 34 waist, argh, should have known better, never find 34 waist in big and tall. So now what do I do? What do you do?

Here is what I suggest. Choose the correct waste size, try on a 34x34 or even 34x32, forget about the length. If you like everything but the length, make a note of the brand and style then go home and search the Web. Unfortunately this takes some preparation, you need to take along a pen and piece of paper, but this does reduce "impulse buying" and you will likely save a few bucks. Online you will have a better chance of finding the right length and when they arrive, you know you will be happy with the fit, feel and look because you already tried them on.

I walked into a JCPenney's store and loved the selection of jeans but nothing 34x36, but when you go to their online store there is a great tool that lets you select your waist and inseam and I found a HUGE selection of 34x36 pants and 34x36 jeans. It is like a candy store. I am seeing more Websites that do this, let you select your inseam and waist size and then show results that match.
