i'm 6'1" and 182lbs. i am right between a M and an L, but I wear the M for more support. you are probably an L given your height.
the differences in models are length and thickness. one is insulator, one is a support tight.

you are better off ordering both sizes and then sending one pair back. there is no way to know which size you are with the variance in sizing among manufacturers, and even with a manufacturers line. backcountry makes it very easy for you to do returns, and will sometimes send you a return label if you order multiple sizes by phone.

fast drying, mid to low knee lenth, thin and super comfy wearing between the legs on long hikes -no chaffing.
lots of storage pockets (that could actually stand to be a bit higher due to certain heavy items bouncing agains the knee. i'm a 33" waist and can wear the 34" short without a belt, or a with a belt for extra cinch.
good short to toss over cycling liners for busting around town or the trails on the MTB.

good weight to wear around, cotton similar to khakis and cut similar to jeans. i'm 6'1" and 180lbs, i normally wear a 32, 33 or 34 depending on the pant. i wear a 32 in these and have sufficient room to fit a hand inside the waistband. at the same time, when i squat down or sit in a chair, the legs are a little tight in the thigh area near the upper leg/crotch. i would prefer a more generous cut, especially from a pant that is gusseted (ie. the gusset might as well not even be there with this pant). prana also cuts their length to the waist size (rather than making lengths) this is annoying because if i bought the 33 or 34, that's a pretty long inseam, and even the 32 is generous in length.. you gotta be pretty tall, or willing to get them hemmed to make the larger waist sizes work.
i wish i could have tried a 33 just to check the fit, but i could already fit a hand in the waistband as i said..
