Rated 5 out of 5 by DottyDot Smart choice
I'm wearing the size XL petite, dark Gray Heather; they look and fit great. The fabric is comfortable and smooth. I topped the pants with a favorite gray cable knit sweater and the color match was identical ! What luck! I added a signature silk scarf in red/orange which felt complete. Suede or smooth leather boots complete "the look". Thank you, LL Bean

Rated 5 out of 5 by HuntWdsShopper Perfect fit: perfect traveling pants
I've had these pants for about six months. They fit terrific and look great. I didn't really appreciate them, however, until I wore them on a long car trip. I felt like I was wearing pajamas --so comfortable, didn't bind, didn't stretch out -- and then I hung them up and wore them the next day and they looked as good as new. They were indeed "perfect" for my trip and my conference.
For the record, I bought XSmall, Medium Tall, darkest brown (can't remember the exact color). I'm 5'7" size 4 (at least by LLBean standards)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sharkgirl I love these pants!
I have two pairs of these pants in the bootcut style. Have worn to work, college reunion events, and just around town. They're extremely comfortable, but have a nice weight and drape to them, so they are much nicer-looking than jeans or casual knit pants.
Very wrinkle-resistant, too.
A friend of mine just had to buy a new pair of black ones, because hers had faded so much they didn't look nice any more (and she NEVER puts them in the dryer). But she has owned hers for more than a year. So far, after 4 washes, mine look brand-new.
I do wish they were about 1/2 inch longer...bought the medium/tall. I am 5'9".

Rated 1 out of 5 by gracefulpilgrim not the same fit
I wore these pants for work the past few years and loved them. But with the recent order the material had changed and is thin and baggy and the pants are now longer. No longer a perfect fit. Will not buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oliveoil1856 All I've worn for years
I bought my first pair of these 3 or 4 years ago and have bought nothing but these since. I wear them all four seasons, dressed up, dressed down, sandals and boots. Just waiting on indigo....... For me, they have the perfect rise (hard to find), perfect length, and correct cut for my legs. Truely comfortable without looking too casual. I have some in long for heels, and some in regular for flats or clogs. Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cynthias Just right
I wear average sizes in pants, but am right in the edge of petite at 5'3" (or 5'4"). These pants fit well, and have a nice enough finish that they can be worn to the office with the right top.

Rated 4 out of 5 Very long
These are very nice pants. The fabric is especially nice. These would be nice pants for the office but they were VERY long. I am 5'-5" tall and me legs are longer than the average woman my height and they laid on the floor several inches even with shoes on. Reordered in a petite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TAZig Perfect fit pants.....not!!
These pants cannot compare to previous version #272446.
I absolutely loved the old version. These fit completely different, tighter ,a little shorter, and although a little heavier weight the knees tend to puff out. I believe waist is larger as well.
I would love the old ones back. Returning one of the two pairs I bought. I would not recommend .

Rated 5 out of 5 by makabe These really are perfect
I never write reviews, but I can't stop talking about how these truly are the perfect pants. The weight of the fabric is nice and substantial, so they drape much better than other yoga type pants, but are still soft and comfy. I have a similar pair from another store that I paid more than twice this much for, and I like these even better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RaindropsOnRhodies No longer a "perfect fit"
I ordered the Petite Large in black. They were the right size but the cut was terrible -- uncomfortable and extremely unflattering.
They suck in around all the bulges and even though the rise is perfect in the front, it sits really low and gapes in the back.
I got out the pair I bought a few years ago and compared them. The older pair, which I love, love, love is also a petite large in black. They fit like a dream and I've worn them so much they're starting to wear out. The huge difference between the old pair and the new pair is in the back seam length. The old ones have the back seam a full 5 1/2 inches longer than the front seam. This allows for a lady's butt being a lot fuller than her stomach. The new pair has a back seam that is only 2 inches longer than the front. This just doesn't cut it!!! How can they be a "perfect fit" when they are no longer cut the way they were when they were perfect?
I found the fabric to be fine even though it has also changed from before --- might even be better for shape retention. That's why I gave them 2 stars instead of just 1.
So disappointed! It's hard to find any manufacturers anymore who understand the importance of cut.
