Rated 2 out of 5 by jessk Not designed for curves
I am 5' 4" and 165 pounds - a size 14 or 16 depending on the manufacturer so I confidently ordered the size L regular which in other LLBean pants fit me well. These were tight over the lower hip so I could not comfortably put my hands in the pockets. the waist fit well, and I liked the belt. I debated about going up a size vs. just sending back and going with another pant style, but I liked the cargo pockets, although the zippered one is useless because it is deep and narrow, so you can put a phone or credit card in but would have trouble digging it out with only 4 fingers. I ordered the XL and it was 4 inches too large in the waist. Both the L and XL and the Tropicwear Capris in 2 colors are going back. Too bad?they were cute but not functional. Women have curves, these pants would fit a man or a woman with no hips. LLBean, please fix these pants so real women can order them.

These pants are light-weight and comfortable; perfect for hikes or travel. Easy care; fit is exactly right in length and at the waist. I will give them a good test on my next mission overseas. A refreshing change from jeans or knit fabrics.

The weight of these pants is good, however, the fit is a bit snug through the hip/stomach while the waist is a bit large. The next size up would be too large. That said, I am keeping these pants for an upcoming safari and think they will do just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SweetB Size Way Off
Okay so maybe I got a mislabeled pair but these pants were HUGE! I usually wear between a medium and a large depending on the cut and style so I ordered a medium and they were so big that they easily were an extra large if not xxl. There was no way that these mediums were mediums and if they were even a small would've been too big- and I have not been a small since I was 12 years old!! Order down a size and maybe they won't be too big

The fit is pretty good, not too tight and only a bit too loose where a petite version of this style might fit better.

I have difficulty getting pants that fit properly - so when I tried on these pants and found that they fit perfectly I ordered an additional pair in a different color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by meows2 small too short, medium too baggy
Nice pants, lots of pockets. I'm 5'7", 135 lbs, curvy through the hips, small waist and medium was too baggy but the right length. Exchanged for small and the fit was great, however, they were too short so I had to return them as well. It would be great if these pants were available in the normal LLBean sizes with custom fit and length.

These fit very well and are of good quality. I've had much difficulty in finding any hiking pants that sit at what used to be called the "waist" (ie, the smallest part of the torso). These do, and I love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sqwimmer Not for My Curvy Figure
I loved the style of these pants and unlike many of these adventure style pants, they actually look nice on and are slimming. Nice material that will dry quickly. Unfortunately the large for me was much too large in the waist, but fit in the hips and could not be altered due to it being so large in the waist. The medium was still large in the waist, but way too tight in the hips. I am a curvy gal with a very small waist and pear shape and wear between a 10 and 12 depending on the style. Still searching for a good pair of adventure pants that fits.
