Rated 3 out of 5 by Astrocomical Frays and Tears Easily Explained
I order these pants and immediately tore them when the exposed side pockets love to grab at drawer handles. LL Bean kindly replaced them and the replacement also tore but not as badly in the same area of the exposed pocket.
I did not return it as I don't like to take advantage of a company with a wonderful return policy.
But I did notice they began to fray at the edges when machine washed and dried repeatedly within a year or two. I don't wear it too often.
So, quite possibly it can be machine washed but lined dried to make it last longer?
The fit and finish are fine when you find your size. The one I had had buttons for the two back pocket that were a little difficult to open and close. And there are two button on each of them.
You have to train yourself how to do it with one hand and it still takes some time. Luckily I didn't need to use the back pockets too often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Munster Buttons on Tropic Weight Cargo Pants
I have bought these pants for many years as I work in a hot desert location. However, I have notices recently that the buttons on the pockets are not sewn on like they used to be and I find it annoying to be sewing new buttons on regularly. Have you changed your specification to save thread?

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAlbee Exactly what I wanted
I was looking for light weight pants to wear in the Summer. These turned out to do the deed. They are cool, they fit perfectly, I love the higher rise, they are well constructed and the fabric, while light weight, is a very tight weave which resists snagging. I like the fact that the cargo pockets aren't the bellows type, but they can snag on cabinet and drawer pulls.
I liked them so much I purchased a second pair in British Khaki which are lighter colored than shown. a shade I'm very happy with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AndyAx OK, but not great
A bit too long, but the real problem is around the cargo pockets. I find the two button closures to be awkward and a bit of a pain. Also there are slight color matching problems in the same area. Pockets are not that comfortable to use.
Color is more dusty than dusty olive.

Nice pant for summer. I appreciate there being buttons and not hook and loop fastening. I also appreciate their smooth finish on the pockets, pleats, etc. for safety reasons. They don't get hung up or snag on things like many cargo designs. Their belt loops are too small; they should accomodate an inch and a half belt. I will not buy another pair for that reason.

Pants were nice but the fit was no good.
The waist sits very high. Long zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PHershey My favorite long pants
Completely sold out online right now (January), so I'm really hoping they come back. Good year 'round here in AZ. Fit is comfortable; like the light weight. Also like that the back pockets are deep enough for my 6" smartphone and tall wallet.

I cannot say enough about these pants. They look great. Dressy enough to wear at the office, casual enough to wear leisurely. The cargo pockets are not bulky and they have button closures, which I much prefer over velcro. The fit is relaxed enough for baby boomers who may have put on a few pounds. They are very durable and keep their shape over multiple washings. I have almost every color of these pants, but my one regret is that the charcoal/dark grey color seems to have been discontinued.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dave75 Not Sized Correctly
I wear a size 36 waist. I ordered these pants in a size 36. They arrived and are labeled a size 36 but after putting them on, I quickly found out that they are not a size 36. Way too tight. All my other 36's fit just fine but not these pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by grad1957 Lower quality
There are seven pair of these pants in my husbands closet. they look nice when he wears them and he really likes the style. The pants have always been difficult to iron but the quality has been very good. This was one of the two ordered in June. The material is different and wrinkles as I finish one area and go on to the next. I hope this was not meant to be the material being used in the future. I would have recommended them based on past orders.I probably will return them.
