Rated 4 out of 5 by NCshop Size not true
I wear a 12 or 14 in pants, sometimes even a 10 -- depends on brand. I had just tried on a pair of trail pants at a local store and decided to order from LL Bean because (a) I like most products, and (b) they were cheaper although very similar and I especially liked the back zip pockets. These pants do not run true to size. The size 12 was way too small, the size 14 was very snug. The ones I bought locally (different brand, of course) are a size 12. So I was disappointed and sent both pairs back and have bought the ones I tried on at a local store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tisbe52 Good trail pants
I'm a larger woman and it's hard to find "outdoor" clothes. These pants are perfect! According to the size chart I ordered a 3X. They were much too large and returned them for a 2X which are still a little loose but I think the 1X would be too tight. The point is, for me, the sizing was off a bit and I think they run large. However, they are excellent pants, light, dry quickly, and are comfortably. I would recommend these pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zoogirl1953 I want more of these!
Though these are somewhat long for me (I actually need a petite in length) the drawstring at the hem works perfect and so I didn't need to hem them. I totally love these pants - this 100 degree weather and humidity are not a problem with these - whatever breeze you get goes right through them - they are quick drying and have enough stretch to make them comfortable. These will be my go-to pants for the summer months!

Rated 5 out of 5 by outdoorsgal2 My new favorite pants
Thought I'd try these. Really like them! A bit sporty, lightweight, wrinkle a bit when wearing but not much. I've ordered two more pairs - one the long pant version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cathync Only this pair fits great!
I actually had 11 pairs of these shipped to me. I ordered in 10 reg and 10 petite. Too large. I returned all 6 pairs for an 8 petite. Received 2 pairs in 8 petite and they were too small.Returned those 2 for a 10 petite and too large, but not quite as large as the original 10 petite. This particular color was on backorder, so it was delivered by itself on a different date. It fit perfectly in the size 8 petite. You may have to try several pairs to find one that fits. If the other two colors in size 8 petite fit as well as this pair, I would have kept all 3. I normally can wear either a 6 or 8 petite in pants. When I read the other reviews, many stated that the pants were too small and to size up a size or many two sizes. That was why I ordered the size 10 at first. Really nice pants. Wish there was better sizing control. All the size 8 petites should fit exactly the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by squarefootgardner Fantastic - just ordered another pair
I just returned from a week trip to Zion and the Grand Canyon. Wore these pants at 100F in Zion and hiking the Canyon at 55F - 5 days of the 7 day trip. They washed very well in the camp sink and dried fast. After sitting in a river they were comfortable and dry within 5 minutes in the heat. Looked neat the whole time and not a spot of wear after many miles of hiking and rock clambering a day.
Comfortable, though on the slimmer side of an LLBean fit - I often wear 10 and these were a 12 and none too big. I'm 5'10" and the medium tall was perfect but could not have been shorter.
Nice features: zip front leg pocket fits a wallet nicely (tad small for a smartphone). But the two long front pockets easily fit a phone without fear of losing it or discomfort. I like the back zip pockets - roomier than most women's patch pockets. Oddly, the inside fly is patterned - which makes the pants front stand out in a dark tent. The pants have elastic closures at the bottom of pants that can be unused and invisible or closed tight. They are excellent for bug protection (especially ticks and mosquitos) and the clasps are nicely covered for comfort. The pants were cool in the hot desert sun and fine in the cool.
Very comfortable crotch design and roomy knees while still looking fitted. I am thin but curvy and the lower waist was great and fit perfectly. Measure before buying. I bought my first pair in black to wear to work and just ordered a second in ash.
I'm going on another camping trip in a week and these pants, a pair of shorts, underwear and some shirts are all I'll take. Very functional and very sharp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveCA Almost perfect
Love both the pants and the capris but I would really love them if they had a thicker waistband. They are just slightly uncomfortable with such a thin waistband.

Got the lined version of these pants last winter and I lived in them. Wound up ordering a second pair.
Ordered the unlined version for warmer weather. They are cool and light. I particularly like them for the pockets that hold iphone, wallet, camera, anything smallish. They are the perfect "out and about" pants.
The size 8 perfectly fits my 5' 6" 120 lb frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizInPA Just right!
I ordered my usual size and am very happy with the fit and comfort. They went into my suitcase immediately, and were worn a number of times on hikes.Very comfortable, and I like the ash color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joan08 Terrible fit. Not even close to the normal size
I should have listened to the recent reviews that cautioned something is wrong with the sizing. I typically will wear a 16-18 in a pant. I worried the 18 might be tight so I ordered the 18 and the 20. Neither one were even close?.and no I haven't gotten bigger! Very disappointing since I ordered the shorts and capris too. All are the same. I am guessing they are switching over to a new supplier. I just ask that llbean checks they are getting what they think they are. I am returning everything.
