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.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by bluedun Instead of jeans
Instead of buying more bluejeans, I've been ordering these for the cargo pockets (smart phone, multitool stash) and more comfortable fit on longer car trips. Also, the elastic waist is useful in winter when I layer up and tuck the shirts in on the cold mornings and evenings of our mellow Mediterranean climate. I buy them to size in the waist but add an inch in the length for shrinkage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Christopher50 Favorite item
This is my favorite cargo pant but it is not now available in my size which is 36" waist and 32" inseam length. Perhaps this the size that is most commonly sold out before I get to order it on the LLBean site. This has been in and out of stock over the past year(s) so like it is one thing - reordering my size is another. Can't really rave about something that is not available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PathfinderPantGuy BEST PANT EVER!!!
I first ordered this pant many years ago, maybe as much as 20-years ago. I wear these pants everyday. It is the best pant ever, but LL Bean in their infinite wisdom has decided to discontinue 36" inseams, which means that I will no longer have access to this pant. I need a 36" inseam, as I am sure many other folks do also. Please do not discontinue Tall or Long sizes. Having Tall & Long is a great point of differentiation from your competition. Specifics that made this pant the best ever are 4-things: Comfort Waist, up to 36" inseam, No Flap Velcro Closure rear & cargo pockets, and cargo pockets that are "in" the pant leg, rather than hanging on the outside. The last two points, No Flap Velcro Closure, and cargo pocket "in" the pant leg, are truly UNIQUE in the world of cargo pants. Wouldn't it make sense to stand apart from the competition and have a truly unique pant that would fit tall folks? Please reconsider the decision to discontinue Tall & Long sizes.

This is my third pair. They would be the perfect work pants if I could get them in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by poptrunk99 Excellent Pants!
I have ordered and worn these pants for about 15 years and have always been happy with them. I have found them to be very consistent in size, color, and quality. These are the only pants I can order in my regular size that always fit and are always the color shown. They are very durable and I have never had a quality issue after years of wear. I hope they never change, thanks LLBean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CampIrene Length too short...
Like other reviewers, my normal 32" was too short. I purchased two pairs over a year ago and just kind of failed to realize how uncomfortably short they were until it was more or less too late to return them.
Additional pairs have all been at 34" inseam and dont make me look like I'm ready for flood waters.
