Rated 5 out of 5 Great knock around pants
I recently retired and after 40 years of dress pants have designated the Pathfinder pants as my "uniform" of the future . They are soft and comfortable but still rugged.

These pants fit very nicely and look sharp. My husband loves the soft, untreated cotton (somewhat hard to find). The heavier weight cotton is naturally wrinkle resistant minus the chemicals. The "hidden elastic" on the waist side panels is truly hidden. The length seems a bit short, but we can live with that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robbierae too short
Tried these pants twice - 32 in length - first was a full inch shorter than same length jeans we received. Sent them back and 2nd pair was 1/2 in too short. Not sure what LL Bean's deal is, but they went back too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Northwest62 rougher look and feel in size 40
These pants fit my husband, but for waist size 40, versus the 38 that he tried first, the fabric and feel of the pants is different. In size 38, the pants were attractive enough to wear around town, even to the bank. In the size 40 waist, the fabric is rougher and doesn't have the elegant suede feel and look of the size 38. Thus, these are yard pants, expensive ones. At least the cargo pockets don't have flaps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tiredlady good fit and comfortable
Pants are a great weight for spring weather. They are comfortable and fit well. The color, I believe was canyon khaki, is more of a gold color than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Littlemo NOW I HAVE 4 PAIR
These are "tough" pants that are appropriate for all my occasions.
Fit is good and the right leg pocket is ideal for my phone. I'm an old
widower so I never press them and they look fine without it. The Comfort Waist makes them fit better than the ones I have without it.
These are my favorites without question.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Like2GoHike Perfect for Hiking
I was looking for some new hiking pants for the summer and saw these online. I have bought several coats, jackets and sweatshirts from LL Bean and have been very satisfied, but never bought any pants, until now. I ordered my normal size, and they fit perfectly. They are very comfortable pants and I am planning to get a couple more pair before the weather improves. I prefer darker colors, and since they are out of the Basil pants in my size, I got the dark blue. I will keep checking back now and then to see if they get Basil in stock again. I do wish they had more dark colors to choose from.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ComfortWaistNot Good but becareful of the size
I purchased a pair due to the "comfort waist". I mistakenly thought a 36inch waist with comfort waist would allow the waist to expand to maybe 37 inches. Not so. The comfort waist is good for maybe 1/2 stretch at most. Earlier, I'd purchased a pair of jeans with comfort waist that stretched 1 - 2 inches so my expectations with this pair of pants were not met.
I like the additional pockets in the legs and the velcro close tabs on the back pockets. I also like the wider bottoms. Few things are worse than having pegged bottoms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HikerCraftsman LL Bean Customer
Every color of the khaki line is a shade of YELLOW, not Khaki. And unfortunately it looks like they are phasing out the only true Khaki color they have - Walnut. LL Bean tries too many shades of colors. I wish they would stick with a traditional dark Khaki that fades a little over time. I really like the Pathfinder Pants but the button is sometimes flimsy, I hike and work in them. Good pants, but the button needs to be stronger. I attempted to order pants on Xmas Eve and the pants were sold out. That is very disappointing. I would have thought they would have had enough pants until Xmas. I have owned over a dozen LL Bean pants over the years, not too mention sweaters, so I have been a loyal customer.....
