Anyone have the beta for who makes the clothes for tall climbers?
I need clothes for ice climbing and want to be able to wear something that fits...

Thanks

I am 6'3'' and have a pretty positive ape index.
My Mountain Hardware offwidth jacket fits me perfectly, so does my Arc'teryx hard shell. The shell is rather old though, it was manufactured in Canada, and I think they fit differently now. I have never even attempted to purchase any sort of technical pant because I have a 36'' inseam, and it is hard enough to find 30x36 jeans. I just got a set of EMS Tech Wik long underwear as an early Christmas present, and the shirt fits perfect in the arms because it has the thumb loop. I can't actually use the thumb loop, but it makes the sleeves longer. The pants reach down to about 5 inches above my ankle, but that is fine because they go under my jeans anyways.
Good luck being a lanky bastard.

^^What he said. You send them your sizes and they make clothes. Best of all, the prices are relatively reasonable.

I've been very happy with the Patagonia base layers. Nice, long arms on them that easily accommodate my +3 ape index.
