Best bet is to try them on before you buy.

Seriously.. no shiz.. I tried on a few different pants at Cup.. they were all huge on me.. length wise.. any companies have shorter lengths..? If I had a store around the corner that sold every brand of paintball pants I would have gone there... not that lucky.. even large proshops don't carry more than a few brands of pants usually.. There isn't a National Paintball Supply next my house..

I'm a little shorter than you (amazing, I know) and have much larger legs than most people my size so I also had issues with pants. The ones that ended up working for me were the Valken Zulu line in small. They are a little long for me but they work. Since your taller they might be almost perfect, you might be borderline medium. They seem like they are catere towards "bigger guys". It also helps that the pants have excellent padding and make you look like a bad*** wearing camo.

Well I was trying to help. I don't know of any brands that have short inseams with wide waists.

Try the Valken pants. My inseam is 29 so they bag up a little. The trick is to cinch the cuffs around your calf then blouse over you boots/shoes.

Protos fit me, and aren't excessively baggy anywhere. I'm 5'7, 38/30, 200 lbs. But i haven't tried on a new pair of Protos - i'm still wearing a pair from '05/'06. Old Dye Hybrids fit me well, too, but obviously they don't have the Hybrid line anymore, just C-this and C-that.

I am not settling for having to wear my pants at my belly button.. that would just suck.. also seems like they would slip down unless you tightened your belt really tight.. just not an option..

Im 5'11, and 34 waist, 30 inseam (Levis 514.. if that helps).. The Dye C11 pants are pretty damn short on me, but I still like them. I'm guessing C11s should fit you perfectly.. and if they are still a tad long, you can always tighten the ankle cords.

i'm 5'6", 200 and rock some Valken pants...I find i get good bounces off the bagginess, but I have to rock knee pads underneath because the built in ones are just a hair past where they need to be.

Forgot to mention, Redz made pants that had a universal waist (really stretchy) and the sizes varied by inseam instead. Doesn't look like they make them anymore, though.

This. I stated above what I did but bought some C11 DYECAM pants and there just fine.

You could (if you're willing to pay someone) take a pair of pants to a seamstress or tailor and have them modified to take out some of the baggy slack and hemm them up shorter for you...
