Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great fit & quality; poor color selection
My son loves these pants, and the light khaki pair I bought from a previous year have held up very well. If LL Bean offered these in other colors like red or royal blue or orange, I would have bought several more pairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewEnglandMomof2 Great pants but where is the color selection?
These are wonderful pants. They look and fit great, and they're very durable. My sons love them. The reason for only giving them four stars is that LL Bean used to offer a wider selection of colors - red, royal blue, navy blue, gray - and now all they're offering is the navy, a very light blue (which won't work for my boys) and a green/yellow which, in my opinion, isn't an attractive color combination. LL Bean, please bring back more colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by EWC15 Mesh Lining
I thought these pants looked great, and they were of good quality, however, they have a white mesh lining similar to the lining of a bathing suit. My 12 year old son said that he did not to have them for this reason. He said it would be bothersome. I had to return them because he did not want the lining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Holly63 A favorite!!
We love these pants. I've now purchased them in two sizes and handed the first pair down. They are durable and practical. I have a hard time getting my son to take them off!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by oboemom Daughter loves these for bball, vball, & gym days
Got a size 8 for our 8-9 year old slender girl. They fit well, stay up and are comfy. We love the zippers on the bottom for getting on/off over knee pads and shoes. Mesh lining keeps her from getting too hot.
Wish they made them in black, which is required for some activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edewey505 Athletic Pants
These pants are favorites for both my boys - usually in the Navy. We have multiple pairs in all sizes over the years - they wear well, last, are durable and great for boy play - digging, building, running around outside, school, etc. The red wouldn't haven't been my 1st choice color-wise - so my only complaint would be that the Navy was sold out - but my son has been wearing them happily. I would say they typically run slightly longer than size, but the boys roll them up once and they last through their growth spurts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by travelshopper two thumbs up
I ordered these for my 8 year old grandson. Although I ordered sz 8, I needed to shorten the pants and take in the waist because my grandson is small for his age. He gives them a two thumbs up and wears them whenever he can.

Rated 1 out of 5 by barharborbean Disappointed
I purchased 2 pairs of these from the LLBean outlet. My son loves them, but each pair was worn only twice before they had a sizable whole in the knee. I have had other similar brands and they have lasted much longer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cozyandcomfort super cute, not durable
I purchased these pants a few months ago for my 6yr old active daughter. They are super cute for a "sporty" girl however, She has only worn the pants a handful of times and there is already a hole in the knee (from indoor play).

Rated 5 out of 5 by macamy Pants are BACK!!!!!
I am happy to confirm LLBean as gone back to the original "comfy" feel of these pants. We just received the bright navy today and they are exactly as they had been for years. Thank you so much for bringing back a favorite :)
