Purchased these trousers as I work as a gardener so wanted some trousers that would take knee pads to look after my joints as I get older. I'm 6'1' and the regular length fits well however, when kneeling I found that I was resting on the lower part of the knee pads . I have spoken to Fjallraven who have confirmed that the longer leg trousers have the knee pads located 2.5cm lower down the trousers, so I would probably order the longer legs going forwards. The trousers themselves are really well made and designed well. The thigh pockets are positioned so that any contents do not get in the way and as a bonus I found that the poppered loop, located just above the right hand thigh pocket, neatly secures my secateurs holster in the pocket for handy access. I have only waxed the seat and the lower front and it does a good job of keeping the thick of the water off. My body temperature tends to operate on the warmer side of normal, so I usually wear shorts 365 days of the year. These trousers are however not too warm and the vents are a real bonus if you start to over heat. Overall a great buy, even though they are more expensive than similar trousers like the revolution race pants. Had the knee pad pockets been located a little lower then these trousers would have received 5 stars. If you are never going to fit knee pads, I would say that the regular length trousers are fine for someone of my height, but if you are, I would go for the long leg.
