Rated 5 out of 5 by nrkmann Still wearing after 20 years
Bought two pair (loden & brown) about 20 years ago. They are still going strong. Very comfortable fit and resist brambles well. Glad to see them back so I can replace the one with a knife cut (it has been repaired but shows).

Rated 4 out of 5 by WaltB Wearing them right now. -7 deg F out. Warm.
I bought these for outdoors in the wintertime in Northrun Meeshegun. They are pretty good. They are comfortable and fit well. I am a short and stout Grandpa. I do not use suspenders with them, but they do have buttons for that. They are not windproof. They are not dresspants. I wear wool long johns in this weather and polyester in temps that are bit warmer. Overall I like them, a bit pricey, but they seem to be pretty tough.
So, if you are looking for a windproof very warm pair of pants, these are not those. They are kind of high medium. I am going to look at some heavier duty wool pants on the website.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2ndGenBeanShopper Quality Wool pants for active use outdoors
These pants are nicely made, solidly constructed, and will hold up to use outdoors and in cold weather. The wool fabric is thick and warm, and I think they are terrific. However, I bought them for my husband, and they don't suit his needs. They are too roomy in the hip and thigh for him, and not soft enough against his skin. He must be a bit more sensitive to wool than others. I believe he'd have kept them if they were lined or 1/2 lined to the knee, and black. The loden color is very nice, and if they fit properly the color they can be gotten used to, but they were too roomy in the thigh so he wasn't satisfied. I'll have to return them and hope to find warm, lined black pants for him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by davitch whipchord pant
over all decent pant....first wear feels like good material....I like the overall fit ..waist and derriere feel well tailored with more than ample leg room .....but two neccessary improvements:
1] longer zipper...I have to unbotton the pant to lower the pant to go #1..ie the sipper stops short [too high] above the crotch
2] deeper pockets
....the only comparable pant I've seen are Filson...and yes no doubt superior pant all around [ I know they make deep pockets]...don't know about the zipper ....but I'm not yet willing to spring for the extra 100+ bucks...I'll go with these even though they appear to be made for those with an anatomy of small hands and private parts closer to the belly botton
I give above average for material and fit comfort...and I'll give them a shot in spite of the shortcomings

These pants are great I wear them hunting, I wear a size 40 but buy 42-44 due to these are a regular fit. The 40 fit great just not relaxed to hunt in. Im 6'2" 245lbs and want to be able to but long under ware under them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SpringRich Nice pants but the fabric is reversed
These pants fit well, are well made, don't shrink when washed and are a good value. The only complaint I have, which others have noted also, is the supplier put the wrong side of the fabric on the outside. The twill ribs which are tight and hard should be on the outside not inside. The pants are made in Vietnam and perhaps they are unfamiliar with this fabric. Still, it is hard to find pants like these anymore, so even with the fabric reversed, I am keeping them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TinyTim79 What the...?!?
I don't understand why certain clothing companies can't make clothes for smaller framed guys. I really want to like LL Bean, but I'm having a hard time because nothing from LL Bean fits. For example, these pants...where is the size 30? Furthermore, even the smalls I swimming in. I know that we live in a world where everything is super sized, including the people, but that shouldn't mean us "little folk" can't have access to quality clothing.

Since I have not worn them, I can only state that they fit as indicated, look very well constructed and the fabric seems a sturdy gabardine.
A winter of washings will tell the tale.

Due to the hot weather I have not worn the pants outside. The fit was great and they washed and held their shape extremely well. No ironing required.

Rated 2 out of 5 Not what they used to be
I've loved my Bean whipcords for probably 20 years. Inevitably, they are no longer suitable for dressy use, which is a shame because they drape beautifully and have worn like iron. I ordered a new pair, but they are not the same product, and I have returned them. Old pair: Cut and tailored like dress pants. New pair: Cut like jeans. Old: Hard twill on the outside, soft inside. New: Hard twill inside, soft outside. (What were they thinking?) Old: Brownish color with green undertones; goes with anything. New: serious loden green, goes only with a park ranger's shirt. I am SO disappointed!
