6'3"...seems to be the height of preference so far :D. ... I flirted with the idea of trying OSM pads but persisted with my regular mens size SS Test pads. Didnt really see any added advantage of getting bigger pads. Curious, has anyone ever measured the difference in height and width of OSM vs regular pads?

See my comment earlier, I'm 5'10" and with a short inside leg in most shops.  I have had those exact same pads, and they fit pretty well, similar to many small mens pads I've also had.  The GM pads and Kook pads are often bigger in the standard sizes I reckon.  I find that if I'm running between wickets a lot (that's the plan anyway) that bigger pads just get in the way - there's a definite balance between avoiding taking painful blows on the legs and being comfortable running for me.

Another 6'3 here, very lanky but I use standard men's. Large sizes were always a pain to get hold of in shops and I prefer them to feel as small as possible anyway, so a standard men's that runs a bit large is perfect. Prefer Puma pads, did once try on some large GNs and they were still to small so not surprised by the thread!

GM pads always used to come up large.
I'm 6'1 and used Small Men's GM pads (this is going back to 2014, though)

6'2 and use GN Supernova 900s in men's, which replaced a pair of GN Powerbow Players in OSM, just prefer how they fit. I have the knee socket a bit higher than the normal position though

5-10 but I cannot run in regular mens pads even if Indian made. The top strap keeps hindering movement at back of my knee.  So I stick to youth size for games and regular mens size for nets (for the extra protection at nets where i am not running). And i don't believe I have shorter legs, if any i have longer legs..

6ft4 and use large legends found they are bigger than standard gm but smaller than osm which were a little bulky
