Rated 1 out of 5 by janiebee Warm, but Terrible Fit
I knew these jeans would be tight around the waist after reading the other reviews, but I thought I'd give them a try anyhow. I live in the mountains in northern PA and our winters are really cold and snowy. These fleece-lined jeans would have been perfect for walking the trails at our home, BUT... the fit was awful. The waist was very tight, but the seat, thighs, and legs were gigantic. They looked like clown pants! How disappointing! I guess I'll just have to wear my fleece-lined tights under regular jeans. What a shame! LLBean, please listen to the reviewers and re-size both the flannel-lined and fleece-lined jeans. I'd buy several pair if only they'd fit me!

These are great jeans for a younger, stronger woman. As I am 74 with one weak leg, they may be too heavy & stiff for me. I haven't yet decided whether to try to break them in. I wanted them for yard work in the cold. Maybe the flannel lined jeans would be less stiff, but not as warm.

Rated 2 out of 5 Not a good fitting jean and were very wide
I wanted to purchase a nice warm pair of jeans for walking outside I placed my order and when they came I was very disappointed. They were short and I am only 5'4" and were very large and not very comfortable at all. I will also say that I decided they were not worth the price and ended up returning this item. LL Bean was very good on the return and notifying me that they did receive my return that part was good. But I would not recommend purchasing these unless you have the opportunity to go to a store and try a pair on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizzieJane I love the LL Bean fleece jeans
You did not have the 12 medium so I had to get the 12 long and will have them shortened. This is the 3rd pair I have had, one each year. I live in them. They fit exactly. I am so grateful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnneV Not glamorous, but WARM!
These jeans run a bit large and they are slightly baggy in the legs. Since I did not buy them to be fashionable, but to stay warm, that's OK. I can also wear longjohns under them without being constricted. They did not shrink when washed. Next time, I would probably buy one size smaller than usual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DogWalkinMama Would have been nice...
I would have liked to own these jeans but they were too big. I am in between sizes and was concerned about the waist size from other reviews. So I chose the larger size and it was way too big. Bean is now out of stock of my size so they were returned. I spoke with very nice and helpful staff regarding a substitution but they didn't have other petites in my size. They suggested the khaki colored lined jeans but who wears this color in the winter???? I would buy black colored lined jeans in a heartbeat. They would be used daily to wear to work (especially since I walk to work) and I would feel more comfortable wearing black jeans instead of blue jeans at work. Hopefully they will read my review and act on my suggestion!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DDR1 Nice jeans
Bought in petite so wouldn't have to hem them. The petite length is a little on the short side, so I don't put these jeans in the dryer, just let them air dry inside out. The lining to the jeans does act as a lint magnet. They are warm, fit a bit snug in the crotch (the test is to get into your car seat and see if you can stand it) and have a good weight to them. I would like the legs to be more tapered to the foot to cut down on up-the-leg drafts. I like them.

Fantastic pants for long walks on very cold New England days. They block the wind and are very durable.

I ordered the flannel-lined jeans earlier this season and really love them, but for extra warmth, softness and comfort, I love these fleece-lined jeans even more. I have looked for years to find the higher waist jeans and am glad to know they are trending back. Having read the other reviews, I ordered one size up (8).The waist is fine but the rest of the jeans are baggy. "So what?" I said to myself. "They are warm, soft and very comfortable, just right for wearing around the house on a cold wintry day." And yes, I also wear them outside with a longer coat. I have a sewing machine so I followed the lines of the seams to take them in somewhat. I also cut some of the extra material. It was easy to do and any beginner seamstress can do the same to make them fit better. They are not stylish due to the extra thickness of the lining, but again I own stylish jeans which are not warm! Personally I think they look cute! Love, love, love these jeans. Thank you, LL Bean!
