Rated 5 out of 5áby marlene1 Perfect fit and weitht
Fit not too loose or tight for outdoor sports. Can wear alone or with longjohns. Available in petites which are hard to find in cross country ski pants. Just the right weight.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Beppolila Perfect for the Weinachts Markt in Dresden
I bought these Sporthill pants some months ago and thought they were very pricey, especially because all my purchases have to be sent to Germany (when you add the shipping and customs duties, you feel as though you have spent a small fortune). I hung them up without even trying on...but just used them for a trip to Dresden--wore traveling on train without long underwear and they were perfect for that. And with thermal underwear for trekking around the city couldn't be better, Only thing noticeable in way of complaint is they do pick up lint but of course, you can just brush that off. To help others, I am 5'2" and rounder in the waist so I got a Pet. L and that is a good fit for me. Where would I be without LLBean...no, I can't even bear thinking about it. Thank you Sporthill care of LL Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5áby VTsoccermom1 Great weight for everyday outdoor
Good quality, weight, perfect for everyday outdoor activities in the winter in VT. My only issue is the length......the inseam is much longer than indicated to me for petites, and in fact does not seem any different than the regular size I tried on in the store?!? Either someone gave the wrong info on line or the pair I received is mis-labeled. I notice several customers asking about inseam information on line, it would be great if you could add this info in your size descriptions.

Rated 5 out of 5 Sporthill XC Pants
I walk my dog early in the mornings. Though these pants are made for CROSS COUNTRY SKIING they are a perfect weight for getting up from a warm bed, grabbing a coffee & getting out the door for a 30-45min. period.
I live in the left Portland, land of rain & midrange temperatures & this is my third pair of these pants. Only the first pair (purchased in 2005!) have bitten the dust.

Rated 5 out of 5áby lovesadventures Great outdoor pant in cold weather
I have been wearing the women?s x-c ski pants for several years because they meet my needs. I wear them on average 2-3 times per-week over a 5-6 month period for skiing, hiking and walking. I live in the mountains where it is cold for many months and these pants keep me warm and are very comfortable when engaging in physical activities. Their stretch, waist tie and ankle zippers make them easy to adjust. I have found them to be durable and hold up over time. However, after repeated use over several years, it was time to purchase another pair so I ordered my usual size medium and found them to be too snug and really uncomfortable over another layer on really cold days. My only annoyance was having to return them and order another size. The fabric on the newer version seems to have more stretch than the older pair and I hope they last as long.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nashvillekb Great pants for winter walks
Even though I live in the South, where we don't cross country ski, I love to walk and hike outside in our beautiful hills. For the last 10 years I've been wearing workout tights over long underwear. These pants take the place of both of those garments.
I wanted pants with pockets for my keys and driver's license, and I also wanted the ankle zippers so I could wear the pants over hiking boots. These pants have delivered on everything I wanted.
When I recently wore them on a hike in the rain, they were warm while I walked and practically dry by the time I got home.
They are a bit pricey but well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5áby luxurylady sporthill XC pants the best
I bought these pants last year. I felt they were a bit pricey but after I wore them a couple of times they are absolutely my favorite. They are the most comfortable pants for all activities. I wear them in the house, and for walking outside. Just be sure to wash them by themselves as they pick up lint easily. Just recently I purchased another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BikerChickinVT Flattering fit!
Finally, 20 years later, it was time to replace my LLBean sport pants for x-c skiing. I am 5'4", 165 lb, usually wear a size 16 (lg - xLg) These fit me fantastic. They are just a smidge longer than desired but the petit would have been too short. I bought the XL. I love them having two pockets and I love even more that they zip closed which keeps the line slimming on the hips. I bought these for hiking and skiing but know I will wear them to shop downtown Portsmouth this winter, aprŔs ski gatherings, sugar shack parties and anytime I think I may need extra warmth. These are far more flattering than flannel lined jeans and can easily be dressed up. In this case, you truly get what you pay for. They are worth every penny, I love them!!
