Rated 3 out of 5áby fisherwoman2 Tropicwear pants
I'm a tall size 16 so I thought by ordering a size 18-20 I would have plenty of room to stand, bend, sit, etc. in these pants. That was a mistake. They are cut skimpy and tight. While the construction is good, they are not the fit I was hoping for. They also were not as long as described on the website. They are closer to 30" in length, not 32" as described.

Rated 4 out of 5áby NCnurse2014 LL Bean came through for me!
After calling LL Bean and explaining that I had purchased these Medium-size pants based on their sizing recommendations, and that they are much bigger than their sizing chart would suggest, they are going to pay for the return-shipping and send me the Small, and take back the Medium. So I will not have to pay the return shipping fee of $6.50. I am very pleased with their helpfulness. "Ann" was wonderful on the phone.
Don't hesitate to call them before you order these, as the fabric width at the hips is actually larger than the chart measurement size. All of the sizes offered have a 30" inseam, she told me. This is helpful to know also.
The fabric itself is soft and wonderful!

Rated 3 out of 5áby NCnurse2014 Great fabric! Runs large!
I love this fabric. To determine which size to order, I went by LL Bean's size chart, located as a link right on the ordering screen for the Zip-leg pants. According to their chart, I am a Medium. Normally I wear an 8. Their M pants are huge on me! Everywhere! Waist, hips, leg width. It is very upsetting that even when I follow their guidelines and order according to their size recommendations, I will have to pay to send them back and then wait a week or 2 to get the next size down (the Small). I am most concerned that the Small will be too short, and then I'll have to send those back too. Very disappointing!

I tried them on after receiving them and could not get the legs on, so back to LL Bean they went that very day.
Please carry these in sizes that are larger.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Patt100 Poor cut
If you have a fairly flat shape, these slacks may fit you. I usually take a 12 in slacks, which would be an M. In an M I felt like a sausage. The upper part of the pants fit very snuggly, the waist came to about an inch and a half below my real waist, and the leg zipper area was tight. The fit was very uncomfortable. I tried them on and I returned them immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5áby HeidiShops Smart looking yet practical.
Cool comfort for these hot summer days. Only regret is that I had to shorten myself. Wish that service were offered by LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SherreeM Love These for Travel
I wore these pants for the full 500 miles of the Camino across Northern Spain - two pairs worn on alternate days. Lots of pocket space including a hidden zipper pocket for cash and credit cards (didn't use my money belt at all!). Pants (hand) washed like a dream and, most importantly, dried overnight every time. These will be my go-to travel pants forever.

I'm 5'3" so finding pants that are the right length is challenging. These were perfect. They sit mid waist so they were comfortable for long hikes. The shorts length was a little long for me but still worked!

Rated 5 out of 5áby jreviews great pants but they don't run small
I read in other reviews that these pants ran small so I decided to try them even though petite isn't available. So I ordered my usual medium size. They were very large around the waist and, of course, too long. So I returned them and got small. A perfect fit after I shortened them an inch. I haven't worn them outside yet but expect to very soon.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Painter33 Too big
I ordered these pants after reading reviews by others who said they ran small. So I ordered medium. They are too big. I was so in need of sun protection that I wore them cinched up at the waist. Still too big.
Also, the button at the waistband is not properly sewed on.
