Rated 4 out of 5 by JEB1980 Great quality, a little tight in the waist
I'm a 34x34 typically (sometimes 33 waist) and I found these to be a little tight. The 34 waist fit more like a 32.5. I had to send them back for a 36 waist. I would suggest ordering a size up to avoid paying shipping charges back to LL Bean. I was also concerned about the length since my inseam is a 34 but these were long enough.
I gave 4 stars based on the fact that I had to pay return shipping. I live in NM and there are no brick and mortar stores nearby. Seems like if I'm spending this much on a pair of pants that free return shipping should be included. That seems to be the norm nowadays.
The quality is great and I anticipate these lasting many a dove/quail/pheasant seasons. Happy hunting!

These were a gift for our son and after reading other reviews we ordered one size larger for the waist and one size shorter for the length and they were perfect. His regular waist size would have been way too tight - especially if he wanted to tuck in a shirt.

Great pair of pants well made. Had to return the first pair because of sizing but this replacement is great.

Got them for 5 seasons now, still in one piece even after all the beating. Light, super comfortable and they protect me against the worst vegetation I can find... Hey, what do you want more than that ?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigbones Men's Technical Upland Pants Almost Perfect
I am using these pants in Hawaii climbing up and down hills and valleys all day. Even with our high humidity these pants are "just what the doctor ordered !!!!". Wicks pesperation very efficiently, and never did bind when stepping up while hiking our steep hllsides. I've been trying everyone's brand of pants with "briar" protection; this is the only one that doesn't restrict my movements while: hiking, climbing, squating, stooping, and otherwise contorting my body to get under and over fences, hills, hiking, crawling, etc. while in the field Upland hunting for gamebirds.
The only reason for the four#4# stars instead of five#5# is that these pants would be "perfect" if they had a couple more belt loops to better support the waist band of the pants. With all the "aerobic" and contortionist moves required while upland hunting here in Hawaii, the addition of a couple more well spaced belt loops would greatly enhance the fit and more secure feel to the pants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eius Pants are extremely small in waist
I bought these for my husband, who does upland hunting. He wears a 36 in all his pants. He has never taken a different size as long as I've known him; so I bought him a 36. They were so tight that he couldn't even bring the buttons close to each other at the waist. The leg width fit (which is usually his biggest problem), and the length fit, but he could NOT button the waist. I don't know if the pair we received were miss-sized, but it definitely seemed that way. We're going to have to return them, since there's no way he can actually wear them. If they are miss-sized, then I think it shows poor quality control on the part of the manufacturer. These weren't exactly inexpensive so I'm surprised to have this issue. I've also never had this issue with an LLBean product. I have purchase other upland pants for him and the 36 fit. Other than the sizing, they seemed like they would be okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 Good pants
This are a good, light weight bird hunting pant. I've used them in Michigan on grouse, Ohio on pheasant, and they will go to S.D. with me. I really like the weight for a full day in the field. You will feel the briars if they reach above the polyester coating, but the coating itself and the hem guard plates are great! Great moisture management. Good athletic (tighter) fit, including the articulated knees and shirt gripper lining. Perhaps a DWR finish? This is my first modern bird hunting pant, quite different from my old waxed cottons, I'm going to like this!
