Rated 1 out of 5 by CustomerNoMore Should have headed the warning
I was really excited to get these jeans as the other fleece-lined jeans I have - and have long relied on to keep me warm all winter as I am outside a lot - are old and worn.These LLBean jeans are substantial, with a nice, hefty denim fabric, and the fleece lining is great. I don't care about how they look as long as they keep me warm. BUT, I should have headed those other reviewers who said that the waist is unbelievably small and tight. I am 54-years-old and this is the first time in my life that I have ever owned a pair of pants I could get over my butt (I wear a size 8) and that fit in the seat and legs just fine, but are too tight in the waist. I truly have never owned a pair of pants that are too tight for me in the waist as I have always had a small waist. Well, thanks, LLBean - this is a first for me. I cannot wear these jeans for very long at all without great discomfort because the waistband digs into my waist. How they managed to create such a pair of jeans I will never know. It is truly amazing. Awfully pricey, too, for a pair of pants I can't wear. I tried, but it is actually painful to wear them for long. I won't risk any more purchases from LLBean and now have to figure out some other way to keep warm this winter. Sorely disappointed and sorry to be out the price of these jeans.

I'm a normal size 12/14 -- ordered these jeans in size 14 because I wanted them a little loose. They felt great going on -- I thought they were going to fit perfectly. But then I couldn't get the waist buttoned. They were several inches too small in the waist. So I returned them and got them in a size 16. They were way too big everywhere but the waist. Still could not get them buttoned! So these are being returned for credit. Don't know why Bean made these so small in the waist. If they had fit, I would have loved them.

These lined jeans are a great purchase for anyone who is outdoors a lot in cold weather. Also had on Beans hiking boots and Beans wool socks which kept me from getting cold.

Rated 3 out of 5 by eaglerockmama too poofy!
My daughter is in college in western Massachussets where it's bitterly cold right now. She loves the fleece lining, but she says the legs are just too poofy and unfashionable. I wish you carried a narrower leg...

Rated 5 out of 5 by FloridaJay Comfort better than I could have ever predicted
The length and waist fit - just perfect. I plan to order another pair now. The overall warmth the jeans provides makes such a difference - with our recent Florida temps in the 20's, unlined jeans would have been miserable without having to wear thermals. I also like the feel of the fleece against my legs.
Since they are lined with red fleece, I was cautious the first time I washed them, but no bleeding of color at all. It was like lifting a bedspread out of the washer - heavy when wet - but worth every cent. So well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gypsyg Nice jeans
These jeans were mainly purchased so I'd have some warm jeans for the winter outdoor activities. They are very good quality. I was afraid with the flannel lining they'd be bulky and hard to move in, but they aren't. The fit is for the most part is really good, but the waist does seem to be a little tight. I'm glad I purchased these jeans.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CrusherLarue High waisted, bulky and short
I was looking forward to getting a fleece-lined pair of jeans for walking in colder weather. The jean waistline was tight and almost reached the navel and pinched when bending over or sitting. I have an average waistline for the size ordered. The advertised length was quite short. The jeans were also very bulky in the crotch area. To be safe, I ordered two sizes and neither fit well due to the length, waist issue and bulk. If you are used to wearing the higher waisted jeans and have a smaller waist you may like these jeans. The fleece felt wonderful against the skin and I would imagine if the jeans fit well, they would be wonderful in the cold. You may also consider a longer length.

Quality jeans that are toasty warm! These block fierce winter winds and also provide a bit of insulation. Comfortable and cozy on a winter day. My one complaint is they are a bit large in the hip. I often order the men's jeans to get a better fit. I hope LL Bean will offer these in a SLIM fit for those of us with a straighter figure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MemereW My go-to winter jeans
These are the 5th pair of LLBean fleece-lined jeans that I've owned and wear nearly every day from Nov 1 until Spring. My husband also appreciates his pair whenever he needs to be outside in the snow.
They keep us cozy and warm,

I've purchased two pair in the past and back for a third. We had a cold snap a week ago and put these on, wrong.....now I can't take them off they're so warm and the insides are a delight against the skin. The only thing I would ask is Bean, please bring more Talls in stock the medium tall is ok but the couple more inches would've been perfect.
