Rated 4 out of 5 by SartorialSavvy Good, But They Could Be Excellent
I purchased a pair of these for myself a few years ago, as well as a pair for my father as a Christmas gift.
The fit is spot-on, just like their unlined brethren, and I really appreciate the availability of the uneven (35, in my case) waist sizes. The flannel adds quite a bit of weight, but is not at all objectionable. The flannel is so soft it almost feels like wearing a comfy pair of pajamas to work! Overall, they are very nice casual pants.
I would absolutely love to see more colours available, especially a dusty olive, sage, or the green that the Pathfinder pants used to be available in, and a charcoal or at least a mid-grey. I find these colours more winter-appropriate (the off-white colour is not very practical), without being as severe as black, or as nondescript as the generic walnut brown I ended up ordering.
Finally, making these available with the fleece lining that the Double L jeans have would be an absolute home run.
It's no exaggeration to say that I'm closing in on 18 pairs of those jeans, in every cut and most every wash, for myself, my family, and friends. I rave about these to everyone, and with good reason: the fleece offers exceptional warmth, far surpassing that of cotton flannel, with much less bulk and weight. Which helps explain the 18:2 ratio of jeans to chinos...
I am fortunate in my job that I can wear jeans if I dress them up with a sport or dress shirt and a sport coat.
That said, I would absolutely love to up my winter-clothing game, in terms of variety and a more professional, polished appearance, without being left in the cold.
(I live in Alberta, so this is no exaggeration. -20 to -40 degrees Celsius is just too cold for flannel to handle.)
In sum, these chinos are very nice, and with a few tweaks, they could be perfection!

Gift for my husband; requested special hemming. Everything arrived ahead of schedule and fit and hemming was perfect.
Pants have laundered well and he loves them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLfan2 Just right
I have tried other lined chinos, but LLBean lined chinos are "just right." I could not have gotten through this winter without them!
Put aside the long underwear, and slip into these nicely apportioned trousers. They are comfortable, stylish, and long lasting. The colors compliment any casual wardrobe, and they are toasty warm and soft!
And, these pants are easy to care for. I now have several pairs, and they are well worth the value. I kind of wish there were even more colors to select from. My LLBean lined chinos are my winters' friend.

With the recent brutal winter we have been having I needed pants there would be warmer than what I have and cozy. This fit the bill and true to size. Very comfortable.

I bought this pants for my husband from an LL Bean store before, he loves them, and asked me to buy another one for him. So I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JBuck Lined Pants are my winter staple.
They are just wonderful. I have many pairs and I wear them all the time, even navy ones for dress. I keep the house cool and these pants make that possible and I can still be comfortable. Wouldn't want to live without them.

I am very pleased with this purchase. Very good quality and an excellent fit. These pants are just the thing for keeping one warm on the frosty mornings of winter in Pennsylvania. I highly recommend them, and will probably be purchasing another pair in the near future.

Very warm and good looking. You don't have to sacrifice looks for warm comfort with these. I could only wish these were also available in a dark brown and that they held a press somewhat longer. Otherwise, they are about perfect.

They come out of the dryer ready to wear. They do not shrink. Wonderfully warm for outside wear but not too warm when wearing inside.
