Tall Men's Motorcycle Jacket and Pants

Hello,
Is anyone able to provide me with a link (Preferably on Amazon) so that I can find a Jacket and Pants for riding - Something that can take a long slide - or even some impact - at a decent price?
Something that is extra long - I am 6'6" - regular sizes don't work. I have to order it online.
I'm not too worried about if it will keep me warm or not - I live in Tennessee, so it won't get too cold. I also know how to layer clothing to keep warm, seeing that I am originally from the NYC area.
Right now I am riding with my Army Field Jacket, Long-Johns under my jeans, and my Combat Boots from the desert.

Hey Perry

I just bought First Gear Kathmandu Jacket and Pants in a Large Tall size, I'm also 6'6" and 201lbs, 45 chest. I was between and Large and XL according to the First Gear size chart; I bought a used XLT off Kijiji, but it was too big for me. Their jacket and pant have velcro adjustments for your waist to give you extra room or cinch up if needed.

I did a lot of research before settling on the FG line. Their owner or designer must be a member of the tall mens club, because everything fit perfectly. Even the knee, elbow and shoulder pads are adjustable for your height. They are waterproof, come with a removable liner and have multiple zippers to allow ventilation in the hot weather; 2 in the front of the jacket, 2 in the arm pits and 2 at the back, the pants have 2 diagonal zippers across the thighs.

There is also a removable water/hydration pack with drinking hose that straps to your back.

I'm selling the XL tall First Gear Kilimanjaro if you're interested, I'm asking $150.00 plus shipping. This is the previous edition and has no water pack, otherwise similar, removable liner, waterproof, vents, etc
