Rated 5 out of 5 by GirlfromNB Perfect travel pants
These are the perfect travel pants. I have 4 pairs of them now and love them! They are comfortable, pack small and look good even if you can't wash them for a few days. Love the elastic in the belt to make the waist smaller too. Good work LL Bean!

I am a kayaker, normally wear shorts, but when cooler weather requires it I used to wear convertible (zip off) pants. Until I came across this Bean product -- the elasticized ankle allows for the leg to be pulled up and kept up, when necessary -- no more unzipping and having to find a place where the zipped lower legs sections won't be lost or dropped. After the paddle, whether it be camping or a dinner out, this pants keeps one in appropriate wear with a different top. I ordered another color to have a spare.
One little design whimsy which I like is the zip tape with its design -- a nice little touch only the wearer knows.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beanfan16 For the right, young shape
I am 5'2", 125" and I couldn't begin to button these. The waist is surely for women with small waists, which mine is not. Rats. I really need some new hiking pants for the summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lyn796 Nice fit, though a little short
I am 5' 8" tall and weigh 132 lbs. I bought these pants in a size 6 M/T.
The PROS: They seem well made, the fabric is a nice light weight with plenty of stretch, they fit great, have plenty of pockets and are very comfortable.
The CONS: The inseam measures 33", so with sneakers on, they are a little short for me. I hope they don't shrink after washing! The waist seems a little higher than the photograph--maybe the M/T length has a higher rise, because the waist band covers my navel. I was hoping for a slightly l lower cut, so that I could tuck my shirt in. The pants are also slightly baggier than I'd prefer and have two inner leg seams which I'm not crazy about. I haven't figured out how to adjust the elastic at the ankles, but I doubt I'll use that feature anyway. They're not perfect, but I think they'll be suitable travel pants.

Lightweight, beautifully made and so very very comfortable. I purchased a 14 Reg. as I could not find petite available. I had to shorten them which meant that I eliminated the elastic bottom, which is cleverly designed. I have not worn or Laundered them yet. Would definitely buy another pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bebbe excellent pants all around
These pants (tan) repel dirt and dry very fast. They are somewhat wind resistant, somewhat water resistant. The waist has adjustable tabs and buttons, which are good but sometimes they come off the buttons. The cuffs are adjustable too. I used them as my only pants along with bike shorts on a month long bike trip and was consistently pleased. These pants are good for hiking, and also look good in restaurants.

This is my second purchase of these pants. I have worn my first pair on many hikes and they are just the right weight, hold up when sitting on rocks, etc. Just the right amount of pockets and great fit. Love them.

This pant is perfect for my travel and teaching abroad needs. As I had never ordered pants before from LL Bean I was uncertain about size and length because I am between two sizes as well as petite or regular. I found the size and length [regular] to be perfect for me at 5'3" to cover my ankles. The fabric, cut, detail, and fast drying is really perfect! Once I return I will order more in different colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LMRAT Hands down the best pants I own
I have worn these pants for business meetings, trail hiking, and travel (they wash in a sink and are dry by morning). They look great, wear like iron and are comfortable.
Bonus! The iPhone 6 fits perfectly in the leg pocket. I'm pretty sure it was designed for a passport, as I fit my passport and phone in easily without the weird bulge that cargo pants have.
On the trail these pants don't snag and they wear well.
For work these look great. Super fancy? No. But in black these are great work pants.
I love being able to have pants that look good AND are comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ruester1992 What happened to these pants?
I've been wearing these pants for several years and have loved them so much, it's hard to wear other pants. Just ordered my usual size 10 and this pair was so loose in waist I had to return. I'm definitely not a person with a small waist, 5' 6" and 135 pds., may have gotten a pair that runs large, so I am going to try again. Agree with other reviewers. These pants are so perfect for hot climates, wonderful pockets that are deep enough to hold what you need. Well made and always look good after many washings. I put them through a lot of abuse in the garden, and they are really dirt and stain resistant.
