Rated 1 out of 5 by jislove First time on and rip
I just pulled these pants on for the first time this morning to mark them for a shortening session. And...the rise seam ripped. Never had any trouble with LLBean products in the 34 years I've been purchasing, so this is a total surprise. I prewashed them as I do all my colored knits, cold and tumble dry low. The stitching along the rise just made that horrible rip noise and I hadn't even put much pressure on it. For stretch pants, of course, this won't fly at all. Made in Cambodia. They may have used a less flexible thread? I have oodles of LLBean stretch cotton clothing and never a problem. So, these are a first and very disappointing. Color nice, fabric soft, but watch out and don't stress it at all if you risk to buy them. Oh, I got the Classic Navy. Might be that particular batch?

Rated 5 out of 5 by caminoista Love these pants!
I am so delighted with the new brown color; I now have 4 pairs. They fit me perfectly (well, a bit loose in the waist). I just wish they could duplicate this color for the fitness fleece jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hillbillyattorney Go-To-Pants for lots of things
I was hesitant to order the two pairs of slacks given that my aging pear shaped body is a tough fit. No problem though it might be for a really skinny woman (like I used to be), The fabric is dressier looking though I got compliments on a recent vacation when I teamed the slacks with a hoodie, a henley and a variety of casual and dressier sweaters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maya17 Like them, but fabric is TOO THIN
These are comfortable pants and I love the dark brown color. Ordered two more pairs in black and navy. Only problem: the fabric is TOO THIN. I've ordered these Perfect Fit Pants in original, slim and straight leg and haven't had this problem before. These won't work for winter at all and I like pants that carry on through 4 seasons.
I like pants that move easily from city sidewalk to hiking trail to slightly dressed up. These have always been those pants, but the new dainty fabric precludes the trail.
L L Bean, please use a more substantial fabric.

These have become my favorite pants by far. Not looking anywhere else for pants anymore. I wear them to work and Tai Chi and when they start to look worn they will become pajama bottoms as they are that comfortable. My black pair has been worn at least twice a week for the last year and still looks great. Glad to see there is a deep brown and would like to see deeper burgundy and forest green shades to switch off with the black. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by threeangels Awesome pants....
me - 5'8", 130 lbs, long waist. Perfect Fit! Ordered Blue, Black, Brown and Khaki. Size XS. All perfect sizing. Nice wearable colors. Good sizing control on this order, Bean. Smooth, stretchy material, very comfortable and flattering. Would wear these everyday - dress up or down. COMFORT!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by vccustomer Sizing changed
I ordered two of these because I already own three pairs that fit perfectly and I like the quality. Unfortunately, I had to return both because, though the quality of the new ones seems the same, the fit has changed drastically. Both are considerably narrower from hip to knee and, still worse, one of them was an inch narrower than the other. Don't know if both of these are instances of poor quality control or if the sizing has actually been changed but not indicated in the catalog description. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma101 Versatile, comfortable and useful for travel
I bought these pants looking for versatile travel/ and or exercise pants. I don't usually use stretch pants for regular wear. However, these pants look wonderful with a dressier top, so although I have yet to travel with them, I have found them useful for respectable evening wear on occasion. I did order them originally in small, but exchanged them for X-Small because they were a bit large. In the X-Small, they fit perfectly in proportion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by geri23 Best and most comfortable!
I love these pants and would be lost if you quit carrying them. I wear the medium tall and that length is hard to find. Tall is too long and usually too long in the crotch from other companies. After wearing these, I find jeans not so comfortable.
My only complaint is wish the pockets were a little deeper. I keep losing Chapstick etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TravelerTA best pants
I have several pairs of these and every time they go on sale, I consider buying another pair - just to ensure that when LL Bean stops carrying them, I'll have plenty to last me for years... These are incredibly versatile pants, but I've found they are my go-to for airline travel. They are thick enough to be worn as pants (not leggings or "yoga pants"), but not so thick that they are too hot, they keep their color and their shape with washing. I have worn them under longer tunic-like tops, too. They are a perfect blend of stretchiness, thickness, and clean stitching so they don't look like sweatpants.
