While these pants are rugged, they are a bit baggy in the legs. Warm, water resistant and durable, but lack comfort as they are scratchy.
They will be returned as they are pricey

Very easy to shorten. Wore out Koch pants, and this seems to be a great replacement for winter activities. Look good enough to wear to an indoor party.

I had to write a review for these. They look great on, slimming style, warm, dry quickly. I wear a pair every day -- snowshoeing, or just hanging around the house in the winter. Occasionally they might get a bit warm (I live in Vermont). I took a medium, and I am 5'5" and weigh 127#. Love these!

Rated 3 out of 5 by zinnia12 Sizing Didn't Work for Medium
I'm 5' 5" 135 lbs. According the measurements provided, I should need the large. The large was too long, too big in the waist and too big in the seat. The medium while wearable was too snug in the waist and the hips to be truly comfortable and too short. I like the slim style, the stretch and the idea of having a nice-looking, warm pant to put on for walking in the winter. I can't recommend these for my size (8-10).

Rated 5 out of 5 by RowingCoach79 Perfect for any weather!
These pants are great for cold, windy weather, as well as casual enough and nice looking enough to wear as normal pants to work (if you are in a casual work place). I am a 5'2", 125 lb. athletic woman who coaches a collegiate rowing team, and we are often in wet, cold, windy conditions at different times of the year. I wear these pants with long-johns underneath and I am never cold while coaching on the water. Perfect for outdoor folks!

What can I say? These are SUPERB pants, fabulous fit and quality. The only downside is the PRICE. It should be easily possible for L.L.Bean to offer this product for less than $100. I kept them however, needing something special and durable, hoping that they will stand the test of time. Please look into and evaluate your pricing.

Love these pants. Great fit, not too long. Will order another pair soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Icefjord Excellent Performance
I used these for a trip to Greenland where I was out in the back country. They held up perfectly, kept me warm, and were extremely comfortable during trekking. I'm middle aged and curvy, not always easy to find comfortable pants. These were great. They shed water and dirt very well. I was 100% pleased with their performance. I've since washed them and line dried them with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by activeSusan Warm, stylish, travels well
I'm 5'3" 110 lbs. and originally bought the medium petite, which was too short. Sent it back for the regular. Only difference in fit is the length, which is great. Be sure to wash inside out to avoid pilling. I always air dry to prevent shrinkage. I've worn them in the winter all over Europe as my go-to evening and day pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by u00ckw2 Comfortable, Stylish, and Very Warm
I purchased these ski pants in January 2014. They are comfortable, stylish, and warm with plenty of stretch for bending. I wore them almost every day for hiking and to the store during these extremely cold days. Without a doubt, they kept me very warm. I wash them on delicate cycle inside out along with gentle soap and then hang to dry. After wearing the pants day in and day out, they still look presentable, no shrinkage, and they still have plenty of length in the legs. I plan on wearing them the following Winter season because they are still in good condition.
I wasn't pleased with the pilling of the fabric though. Between the legs where there is plenty of friction, little fabric balls would form. Also on the front of the thighs. A straight razor will remove the pilling completely. If you don't remove the pilling it makes the fabric look old and worn. Overall, I am satisfied with the pants.
