I am 6'2" and 225lbs.... My waist is a 36" and I have no size issues with the Fox 360 pants or Answer pants. The only way to know for sure is to hit a few dealers that carry some differant brands.

I am 6'3" and 165lbs with a 34" waist. I use to wear Oneal but they didn't have enough room for knee braces.

I now wear Thor Core 4 & 5 and I am very happy with them. The knees are a little baggy but I hear they have made that better on the new gear.
