Rated 2 out of 5áby Potter12 Favorite pants, wrong fabric!
I have worn these pants for many years. I love the comfort, fit, and as an art teacher, I really like the deep pockets. The four pair I've purchased (or received as a gift) ALL have snagged, creating holes. I called LL Bean to register my complaint, but I like them so much, I didn't return them. I use them for yard work, dog park, etc. I'm happy to see others have made this flaw known, because im sure LL Bean will fix the problem. Way too much Lycra! I'll wait for a while to order a couple more pairs.

Rated 2 out of 5áby karmarex Perfect fit pants are not so perfect anymore:(
I have bought these pants for years. They use to be a nice heavy cotton blend. They were the perfect length and rise in a medium tall for me. Now the material is a thin lycra/nylon type fabric, the rise is longer, the legs longer and wider. I had my original perfect pants for years...the next time I ordered them the quality had gone down. They got holes very easily. Now I just received my third go around and they are even worse than the last time I ordered. I washed them thinking it would help but it didn't. Wearing them today and they are baggy at the bottom and so high waisted it rolls over when I sit. I guess I am going to have to start looking elsewhere for the "perfect fit" pant. I have cats and don't dare let them on my lap with this type of cheap, thin material.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Bojanglesgeorge Poor product
I have bought these pants many times. I just returned my last order...too much Lycra maybe...not the same cotton look and the all elastic waistband fits terribly. Bring back the original fabric and smooth waistband front with elastic back and I will purchase forever. Loved these pants. Why did you change them?

Rated 1 out of 5áby LLBNY Perfect??? Not really...
Stretches out and droops, including the rises. Too short for the average height. The pocket bags catch in the fabric, creating bulges. Disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MomfromNiskayuna Petite Perfect Fit Pant
I have bought these pants for many years now. At one time, they were a perfect fit. The petite XS was a perfect length. The fit was good for a petite woman size 4 or 6. I am 5' 1" tall #short#.
Now, when I buy them, they are too long by a couple inches. The fabric seems different - meaning it doesn't hold up to stressors as well. For example, my cat often sits in my lap. This was never a problem. But the cat's claw caught the fabric. I unhooked it gently, but it still created an actual hole - 1/2 inch or so - near the knee. So, while the pants look nearly new, these two pairs have holes in them.
Perfect Fit pants tend to fade rather quickly. I love how black they are to start with, but they end up being a dull gray-ish black after a while.
I still buy them because they are very comfortable and they fit better than most petite pants. It is very hard to find petite pants for someone smaller than a petite 6.
At one point, I lost weight and became a size 0 or 2 and the Perfect Fit XS was way too loose on me.
I do think the price is a bit high for what you are getting - a cotton stretch pant that fades.
But, I like the cut - not too tight, not too loose, the pockets, the fact that they come in petite, and that they are comfortable.
As other people have mentioned, sometimes the sizing is inconsistent. I have several pairs all in Petite XS black. Some fit me, some are tight, some are loose, some are slightly too long, some are just right in length. I wish they didn't fade, but I guess that's what happens with things made of cotton.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Morgan13 Great pants that fit and do not stretch out
I buy the XS medium tall and these are the only comfortable fit pants that are long enough and not too baggy. I wear them almost everyday. Best feature is the medium tall length. Not too long or short. Just right. Also, many pants do not have useful pockets and these do.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nerophiliac Great comfort pants
I bought two pairs, and they are indeed the perfect fit pants. I am 5'5" and approximately 122 lbs. The small in regular length is just right. I wish there were more colors available. I'm waiting for another two pairs to arrive, this time in the slim leg version. Great product, LLBean!

Rated 1 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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.
