Rated 4 out of 5 by granada1108 Fit for the mature woman.
Getting ready for a S. America hiking trip in February and searching for hiking pants/capris. Going carry-on, so all pieces must coordinate and work with all other pieces. Decided a tan is more practical. Kept the Driftwood color which should hide soil better for a week-long trip. This is the only quick-dry hiking pant at Bean for a mature woman's body. We don't stop hiking because we hit age 50! We need more pant choices with waist at or 1" above the belly-button. Not in love with bellows pockets, but no other choices in a durable quick-dry,no-spandex fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janet333 Excellent pants for travel and sporty activities
I found my first pair of these Capris at the LL Bean outlet in Maine several years ago. I now have four pairs. The pants are excellent for travel. (They are more discrete than shorts on a hot day to keep me cool.) The fabric is amazingly strong. After washing, they dry overnight. I use them as my gym pants, my sailing pants (sun protection built in) and just working around the house and garden pants. The pockets are excellent for all these activities and there is a clip for my car keys in one pocket. My only concern is that at the gym, I do become sweaty in areas and need to use powder for comfort. I do hope LL Bean continues to have this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AMW1 Best pants I have found anywhere
This fabric wears like iron, is cool and comfortable, dries quickly. I wish more styles were made with it. These pants fit well and are great for active wear. The pockets are actually functional and you can carry stuff without looking like a pack animal. I have bought several pairs of these pants each year since they came out, and the ones that are several years old are just beginning to show any wear at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elaran Sizing runs large
These pants are amply sized, so review the size charts. I have re-ordered in a smaller size. The large runs in the 14-16 range; definitly not the 12-14 range like many items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teresa23 Pants that fit ON THE WAIST!!!
Hey, Ladies 40 and older -- remember when slacks fit at the waist? You know, that part of your torso that is the thinnest and is almost always an inch or two ABOVE THE BELLY BUTTON? It seems that salespersons do not even know where the waist is any longer! I generally have to explain to them that "fitting right on the waist" means fitting like pants that Lucy Ricardo wears on the I Love Lucy Show. OK, finally pants that come all the way up to the waist and accents my small waist and hourglass figure and make my buttocks look like a round, ripe apple rather than a large, wide-mouth salad bowl.
These capris fit fabulously! And they wear well -- I bought a few about seven-eight years ago, wear them all the time , and only recently replaced them. They flatter and are comfortable with lots of leg room. I hike in them often, but also wear around town.
LLBean--please, please, make other styles with this waistline -- trust me, they will sell out in a second because, frankly, you have no competition!

Rated 3 out of 5 by mlkrz Try these on first
Had I tried these on while in a brick and mortar store I wouldn't have bought them. The waist is a little tight while the thighs are quite baggy. The pant legs come almost to my ankles and have to be rolled up to look like capris. (I'm 5'3& 1/2") I love the Velcro
closures on the pockets but the pockets are too small. The material is great and sturdy looking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SportiSenior Sizing quality control not up to LLBean standards
I was disappointed in the sizing quality control for this pair of capris. It was not what I had come to expect from LLBean products.
I previously purchased this style capri in different colors at two different times. The older pairs fit well and are among my favorites for summer wear. I had previously recommended them to friends. This pair, however, is more than 2 inches too wide and 2 inches too long. I am returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smilesandcurls Love these capris
I love my latest purchase of LL Bean's tropicwear capris. I just bought the light blue pair and the fit and length are perfect. They are true to size and are well suited to my sub-tropical lifestyle here in Florida. I now have four pairs in all the colors possible. Would love to see more colors (white? Navy? ).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Squeekie love these pants
Love these pants. They are very comfortable, and look decent even after traveling in them. And eight pockets! So many that I can loose stuff in them. :-)
A very nice clip in one pocket to put your keys on. I like that one a lot.
I'm trying to loose weight. When I go down a size, I will definitely buy another pair ...
