Rated 5 out of 5 by 4040 Just right!
Ordering clothing without trying it on has been a mixed bag for me. You just never know until that package arrives and you finally get it on whether it was a smart move. These pants were a smart move. Put them on right out of the package and they fit better than I had hoped. I need pants with a 29" inseam, which are extremely hard to find. Good ol' LL Bean had them. These pants are tailored nicely, but casual as well. Well made, good fabric, cargo and rear pockets have velcro closures that work, and standard hip pockets. Very comfortable and good looking. I'm very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigwilly great pants!
These pants are great! Tough yet very soft, its hard to believe that they are actually made of canvas! I will wear them often! color is great too, I got the khaki color.

These pants are extremely comfortable, fit my hard-to-fit body and are of the right weight to be useful in all but the very hottest or coldest weather. The pockets could be a little larger, but the up side is that the cargo pockets don't bulge out the way most do but are still usable. This maintains a relatively slim, tailored appearance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by activeguy47 OK pants, but...
These pants are comfortable and the fabric is tough. (I fell while hiking a rocky trail and skinned my knee but the pants held up. Washed the blood out and they are as good as new) However, the one thing that keeps this review from a better rating is that the fly zipper is only 5 1/2" in length. The standard zipper for all of my other pants is 6". Why the short zipper is a mystery. Having to undo the waist button to go to the bathroom is not convenient!

I bought 3 pair of these pants two years ago, the first hardest worn pair is transiting to retirement phase of life cycle. Perfect fit and favorite all around pants, low profile (bulk) cargo pockets are the best, great for the larger smart phone! Just ordered 2 additional pair of these awesome pants! Thanks LL Bean!

I love these pants! I have 5 pairs. They fit well, look nice for work, and are durable. The cargo pockets easily hold keys or cell phone without bulging. (They also make a safe place to stash a passport.) They don't need ironing, even after being in a suitcase.
I wish they came in more colors (ex., black). I really wish the lined version came in more than one color, had a flannel option, and didn't have the comfort waist.
I hope these pants will always be available. I'm close to having to replace my first pair!

Rated 3 out of 5 by OwnLotsBeanStuff Consider Alagash pants instead
Ordered both these and Alagash pants and returned these pathfinders.
Alagash fabric and cargo pockets are much more authentic if you are interested in cargo pants. These are a little more like Chinos with extra decorative pockets. The leg cargo pockets do not blouse so even a wallet would bulge out.
Colorful pocket tabs are silly looking in my opinion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bobmac529 Bring back 36 length!!
I'm giving these one star because I just came back to order 4 more pairs and found that Bean no longer offers them in 36" length. Therefore, these pants are of no use to me. I tried 34's.. no good.
If I could get them in my size, then 5+ stars. I love these pants. They are step up from traditional cargos. A bit dressier so I can get the utility of cargo with the look and feel of casual/business khakis..
Please bring back 36" length!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThistlinT Pathfinder Pants
I have owned the pathfinder pants for over a year. Able to wear them on a trail or when going out to dinner. Easy to care for and my go to pants. This older pair has been worn and washed more times than I know. When needing a new pair of pants I bought a pair of different style of pants from LL Bean. When they arrived, I put them on but did fit correctly. Called LL Bean and they said to test them
out. After wearing them a couple if times returned them for the pathfinders. When my new pathfinders arrived, washed them and they fit just like my old ones. Great to have a consistent fit backed by a quality company.

I love these pants! They're comfortable, durable, and look great. I have them in three colors, and am thinking about ordering more.
