Rated 4 out of 5áby MiamiEd Tropicwear pants
Pants are comfortable and cool in Miami weather, once the built in underwear has been cut out. The built in underwear is a silly and uncomfortable feature that I found entirely unnecessary. Unless we're doing something that gets us really sweaty and dirty i think most guys will wear a pair of pants more than one time, but most of us change underwear every day.
Also, the cargo pockets don't serve a purpose except maybe to make a fashion statement. The pants would look better out of the dryer without them. Also, the weight of anything put in those pockets (like car keys) makes them distracting and less comfortable.
Best feature is the material, which is light and seemingly durable. I ordered one pair, and after i cut out the built in briefs, i liked them enough to get two more. They're great boat wear in the tropical sun.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MrDonM Lightweight and durable
I purchased the Sandstone color for our cruise through the British Isles in the late Spring. At the end of the cruise we rented a car and toured Southern England for close to two additional weeks while staying at B&B's often for just a single night. This made it particularly important to effectively manage our clothing and I found these Tropic Wear pants really made that easier for me. The mesh liner turned out to be ideal as I could wear the pants all day and give the liner a quick wash in the evening. They dried very quickly and were ready to wear again as needed. It was a bit like wearing a swimsuit with legs but I couldn't believe how comfortable they were and how easily I adjusted to them. The pants are well made, travel well without wrinkling and take up very little room. I'm about 5' 10 inches tall with about a 37/38 inch waist and I found the large size fit me perfectly.
I'm ordering another pair in the Dark Driftwood color and will take fewer pairs of pants with me on my next vacation as they worked so well for me.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Olddog62 Too Short!
I returned the tropic wear pants were too short. I'm a tall guy, wish LL Bean specified the length.

Things that I didn't care for - 1. the built-in underwear, 2. the fit seemed a bit small to me (may have been the underwear). 3. the color had too much of a yellow base in it, 4. Placement of the cargo pockets looked okay in the pictures, but turned out to be not practical for me.

The only complaint I have is the waist sizing and fit. Seems waist sizes are not American men sizes. You need to go larger to make them fit. Otherwise they are fine.

Rated 5 out of 5áby UGAfan Perfect for hot weather comfort !
I have purchased four pairs of these pants in various colors for my husband over the past few years. I buy new ones as he stains or gets tiny holes in them from splashing chemicals into the pool. He literally lives in these pants as soon as the GA weather gets warm and loves their light weight and comfort. They also block the UV rays and look great on him, too. What's not to like?

Rated 5 out of 5áby Joeangh Very Useful
I have purchased 3 pair of these over the past several years and just purchased a new pair. The quality has been consistently excellent and they wear very well. They are very useful. I use mostly for hiking, but they are also great as casual travelling pants.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Intracoastal Almost perfect
I do a lot of boating and fishing in the sun and almost always wear long pants for protection. These are lightweight and comfortable in the heat. I took one star away because I wish they also had a draw string around the waist in addition to the belt. I always wear pliers on my hip and stuff in my pockets. Yup, a draw sting would be great.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Bob A very strange design flaw
In general, I found the the pants to be singularly unattractive: the front pockets are too shallow, the fit is too tight and the mesh insert is extremely uncomfortable and confining. It felt as though I were wearing a bathing suit under my pants.
