Rated 5 out of 5 by CRWinNYC Great Rain Pants, but Run Large
This is my 2nd pair of Trail Model Rain Pants after 15 years of use from the 1st pair! They are excellent at keeping my pants dry when walking to work in the pouring rain. Only complaint is that they run large. The first pair was a Wmns Reg Large (I was heavier then), the 2nd is a Wmns PET Medium, the sizes are the same, kinda long and large in the leg width. The only difference is the new one have a back mesh pocket (nice touch) with a Velcro close, and waist drawcord has a soft toggle not the hard plastic like the 1st pair. I was hoping for a shorter length with petite, but I can adjust with the Velcro ankle strap. I still absolutely love these rain pants and enjoy staying dry! Great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by dogtracker terrible fit
The pants are great but just a heads up to anyone buying them, they are huge. I bought size S in petite. I'm 5'2" and wear size 10 and these pants are much to long and huge on me!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mirabel poor sizing
I had purchased some rain pants from LL Bean 10 years ago, size small, that have been great. They are pretty worn by now so I came to look for the exact same thing. These appeared to be the very same pants only now, the size is totally different. The small is enormous. They are in fact the same pants but LL Bean has changed its sizes to make you feel like you are wearing a smaller size than you really are. Calling a Medium a Small doesn't make you small. It's silly. I returned them and won't buy from LL Bean again with sizes that are so inconsistent with how everyone else uses the term. Shouldn't need a size chart for Adult S, M, L... These should be consistent with other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE2CRUISE2 Pants and Jacket, Mens & Womens Worked Great
We bought these pants for a July trip to Alaska after checking out other styles at another retailer. The LL Bean was our 1st choice. The leg opening allowed us to easily put them on over boots on a small whale watching boat and kept our jeans completely dry. I liked the fact that they came in petite sizes and the Velcro closure allowed you to cinch them at your ankle. The trail model jackets were equally waterproof. The service at the Ross Park Mall store was great, even hunting in the stock room for my size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Trailrainpants Disappointing
I had a pair of the trail model rain pants for 10 years and loved them. I had to replace them recently so I ordered the same model and size that I had before, petite medium. When the pants arrived, I was extremely disappointed for find that they could better fit my husband than me. I am 5 feet tall and he is 6 feet tall. Because I liked these pants before, I will try once more, with a smaller size, but returns are not fun.

I bought these pants over a year ago and I still love them. I mostly wear them for dog walking on rainy days. They fit nicely over my jeans and I stay warm and dry. They clean up nicely and have lasted well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moved2Samm Great fit over jeans, use for bike riding
After getting my jeans soaked from a recent 6 mile bike ride I wanted to find something more appropriate. They were a perfect fit and didn't feel too tight with jeans underneath. The lower leg has a flared panel with a zipper which I assume is to give room for boots. I'll also use these to do yard work when it's raining - best time to pull weeds when the soil is damp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by asap Should have bought these a long time ago
I walk my dog in all kinds of bad weather, and always came back with wet pants...until I got these. I have worn them in pouring rain, a blizzard, etc and my pants and socks have come back completely dry (hooray!). I am 5'6" and bought a large to go over my jeans. Might have been able to wear a medium, but they are not a fashion statement. They are a necessity. Several other dog owners have now ordered them. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pugetsounder Okay
This rain pant fits well over jeans. The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because I am a petite size - just under 5' 2" - and it would be nice if it came in petite sizes for the length. It fits over the shoe or boot without dragging if the Velcro closure is all the way over. I wear a 14 P. jean, and the size large is a comfortable fit without being 'huge' on me - as some large sizes can be. I don't mind the above the waist fit, as I wear the 'original fit' pants and jeans.

This is a great pair of pants not only for rain, but also for snow and wind. Last winter we had a lot of snow and wind and I put these over my jeans when I needed to be out shoveling or playing with our dog. These kept me dry and worked as a good wind block.
