Default Gear for Tall Gals

I'm on the hunt for some gear that actually fits. I'm just under 6' tall, so the women's gear I'm finding is way too short. Anyone know of a company that makes taller/longer gear?

Obvious solution would be to just get men's gear, but I thought i'd see if there were more options.

I think Icon is cut longer arms. If you don't mind spending money, I think European brands are also cut longer

I ended up buying men's gear, but found out that Speed & Strength have some jackets for females that run a little longer. I'd at least check them out and see if any of works before going for the men's clothes option. Looks like the sleeve lengths run 3-4" longer based on sample sizing info.
Hope that helps!
