Rated 5 out of 5 by GBlount Athletic Sweats, Fly-Front Pants
I am happy to write this review because like many people we sometimes have to shop for our husbands or parents. Because I was helping my dad shop for pants that would allow him to retain his dignity when using the bathroom, but we soon discovered how annoying it is to pull your pants down in front of others, exposing your rear end without intention, and that wasn't happening. I search high and low for pants that would be fitting for a man who is concerned about exposure and his age bracket, yet maintain dignity when using a bathroom in public just to "take a leek". LL Bean was the only store online that I could find, the only problem we had then was the limitation of color, there was only two colors
available, so we purchased two of one color and one of the other. They were a perfect fit and because his doctor has him on blood thinner medication, he has congestive heart failure, he needed at least three pair to keep warm. The pants are great for his body temperature and has easy of use. They are lined perfectly, and most of all have a zipper in the front opening. I wish more colors were available....they work great for men who still prefer privacy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rodent Need Medium Tall
We used to love these pants...my husband is 6" tall, 185 pounds, so the regular mediums are too short. However, the tall size does not come in medium and the large size is GIGANTIC. LLBean needs to make medium talls available again!

My husband loves these and wears them regularly. They are soft and warm and perfect for the winter months. They are very comfortable and forgiving. He wants the fly front and these are very hard to find. Wish they also came in black.

These are the best sweatpants I've ever owned. Quality material and workmanship. Great features (ankle zip along with elastic; pockets; front fly, elastic waste yet with button and drawstring). Can't go wrong with these at this price.
I sleep on the deck outside our bedroom most nights. These sweats are just the ticket for chilly nights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kennecticut Athletic Sweats, Fly-Front Pants
I've been buying L.L. Bean's Fly Front for years. The 3 zippers never fail. So, even though they are $5 more than the plain front ( where could you buy 3 long zippers for 5 bucks?) I'd say go for it.
This particular pair feel a little light and the draw string has changed, it used to be a nice cord.
I wish the Athletic Sweat Cargo Pants came with zippers, I'd buy those in a heartbeat!
I don't recommend item(s) to friends but don't be thrown off by that fact. As I stated, I've been buying these for years.
Now, L. L. Bean, Please bring back your short sleeve sweatshirts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bbook Excellent workout and casual pants
I bought these for when it gets cold and I workout. The quality is top notch. The Fly Front is a great feature. I'm really impressed with LL Bean's Craftmanship and quality. I'm in the process of replacing my wardrobe and LL Bean is playing a major role. To bad they don't make underware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hilliar Comfortable, good features.
Great pants. Comfortable. Sturdy draw string, good that a bit of polyester is blended in, and the fly front sets them apart.
One thing, a message to LL Bean, a great company, but seems to be no where to tell manufactures: WHY make sizes that skip from Med.(30-32) to L(36-38), especially when so many men are 34-36.

Far better quality and construction than I expected or needed! Beautifully lined. My only complaint is that they are probably too warm for this CA climate! I'll use them in the cool "winter" months. A GOOD PRODUCT AND AT A GREAT PRICE! ... Thanks

Rated 2 out of 5 by acuchaz well made, but too heavy and not comfortable
I have tried these sweat pants for a few months, but, even after washing, the men's large (I always wear Large; I am 5'10" and 180 lbs) is too long, and ill- fitting. Though the garment is well-constructed, the fabric is so heavy that I can work up a sweat without even doing anything. The tie at the waist has been a constant irritant on my waist line. I am disappointed. and am sending the item back.
