Size 28 pants:difference between youth/adult?

Probably a stupid question. My son is wearing a size 28 youth pant which is the largest youth pant you can get in most brands. He will be moving up one size soon. Adult pants also come in a 28 size, are they the same or does the adult size have a longer pant leg (inseam)? A youth 30 would be perfect I think because I am afraid that an "adult" 30 will be too long and the knee padding will be below his knees. Can any parents tell me what they did at this break-point i.e. youth to adult?

BTW, visiting all of our local bike shops has been a real help :smirk: as they usually have a scant sampling of miss-matched shirt and pants in all of the wrong sizes. I'll have to order.
