Rated 5 out of 5 by UWAlum These are truly perfect pants!
I rarely take time to write reviews, but these are terrific pants. I love the feel, fit and fabric. They are great for travel and casual wear. It is hard to find pockets that don't bulge and pockets are so handy for travel. I will be buying more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bobbieliptak Poor Quality
I've purchased these pants since they were introduced, and have them in every color. They were my favorite pants for travel. This year I purchased another pair of the black, and was extremely disappointed in the quality. The fabric feels and looks like cheap polyester, and has 'puckers' - rather like a slight case of cellulite. Not the look I want in a pair of pants! The old pants are soft and feel almost like a flannel, even after several years of wear. The new pants are stiff and almost shiny. I sent them back immediately. I would guess that LLBean chose the new fabric because it is cheaper than the old, but I'd rather pay a few dollars more and get a decent-looking pair of pants I can travel with over and over again. Please go back to the old-style fabric!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dozzie comfortable without looking baggy
These are the ultimate in comfort and ease--no zipper or other hardware, soft and sleek against the skin. So far they have not bagged at the knees so still look OK at the end of the day. Stains so far have washed out cleanly. I find that I'm wearing them more often than I thought I would.

As I said in my review of the cords, you Never know what length you're going to get! The cords were 3 colors and 3 different lengths. These knit pants are ridiculously long! My husband actually laughed when I modeled my latest LL Bean purchase. Very disappointing. Also, form for review will not allow me to indicate 1 star and too long. They Are 1 star!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by comfortmatters Gray Heather fabric is a problem
I have these pants in black and navy and love them. After wearing the gray heather pair for a day, I couldn't wait to take them off because the fabric irritated my skin. It is thicker and not as smooth as the black and navy fabrics. The black and navy pants would get 5 stars, but the gray heather only 2. I do appreciate LL Bean's generous return policy, which allows returns after an item has been worn if it is found to be unsatisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuiltB Love these pants
I only wear these around the house or for exercise walks. A perfect alternative to sloppy looking sweatpants or in the morning, to hanging around in my bathrobe until 11:00 a.m. Wake up, pull on my perfect fit pants and a tee, and I feel "hang around" comfy but still pulled together. Fit me well, accomodating a small waist relative to my curvy hips. They wash and dry well. I hope LL Bean makes these forever!

Rated 3 out of 5 by RainForestRanger Good For A While
I bought 5 pairs of these pants because I liked the fit, look and comfort. I wash after each wear and after a year (less for black) theyre too stretched out (kinda faded too) to feel good wearing them for anything but around the house. They were wonderful while they lasted! Not sure I'd buy more, maybe will try a pair of the boot cut style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CurmudgeonWife Nice at First
These pants feel elegant at first. But, they do run big and they stretch out as you wear them. I also purchased another pair in blue about a month ago and they have been washed a couple of times. The waist is showing fading from the washing. There is an inner band that is supposed to work like a girdle. it is comfortable. I use these for casual pants. I would suggest you order a size under your normal.

The fit was fine, even the length, and they are comfortable. I bought two in black. But after just a few washes, they are both faded and shabby. I can only wear them as pajamas now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by maryap So dissapointed!
Bought these pants for casual wear after I had read good reviews and when they arrived they were just what I wanted! Fit well, pockets, etc. The disappointment came when I had worn them for about half an hour- I think they "grew" three sizes! Stretched very badly and were saggy and huge. If you buy these I would recommend buying two sizes too small as they will be gigantic within a few hours of wear!! If I hadn't worn them and knew they stretched this much I would have returned them. Will not order pants from LL BEAN again.
