Rated 3 out of 5áby Sumptergal Waist too big for hip size....hate the tie
Nice material, constructed nicely. Good medium weight material, needs ironing after washing. Waist too large for hip size of shorts. I purchased size 12, waist is at least and inch or more too large in all 4 of the shorts I purchased...I tried to use the tie but it is hard to keep it tightly tied, even with 3 loops before making the bow. Had to finally just remove the tie belt and use the pants to work around the house. Very dissapointed...these could have easily been my "go to" shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TeacherSailor Great shorts
I picked up a pair of these a few months ago, and liked them so much I seem to have acquired a week's worth! They flatter my shape--5'2", and slightly "athletic" (not stick-thin) legs. They wash well and only take a quick bit of pressing. The pockets fit a cell phone or inhaler, and they look presentable with a polo or nice blouse, but feel comfortable and casual enough for a short hike as well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby sdwaldon Excellent fit, comfortable
I have these shorts in mint and light almond (khaki). I love them. Great all day wear. I am thinking about more of them. I would say probably the most comfortable shorts I have had in a long time.

I purchased several pairs of shorts for an upcoming vacation. I was hoping these would be a nice neutral (I purchased the deep olive color) that I could pair with multiple shirts. Unfortunately the color does not match the picture online at all....the green is MUCH MUCH brighter and not really a neutral. I haven't quite decided if I'll be returning them or not. The fit is OK, they seem to run a bit small in the waist, but not uncomfortably so. They aren't terribly flattering, possibly because I don't have much of a booty, so they just hang funny. They are otherwise exactly as pictured.

Rated 5 out of 5áby debita My favorite shorts
I absolutely love these shorts....I have bought almost all the colors!
They are comfortable, durable, and wash up well with no ironing needed.....and no shrinkage. It would be great if black and dark brown colors were offered, too!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Jensuni Not bad.
These shorts have a nice soft feel, they are neither too heavy or too light. The color was very nice. My biggest problem is that although the material had some stretch to it, which I love, the waist did not. This is not the first time that LLBean has added some spandex (which I also love) but somehow forgot the waist!! Please we need the stretch in the waist too!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bundles Love these!
Exactly the fit I was looking for. They rise high enough that they don't emphasize (or create) a muffin top. I weigh 150 lbs and 5'4" and a size 12 fits me perfectly. I don't need the tie at the waist - might remove it. But I'm hoping I'll lose some weight and then I'll need it. One can always hope!
Not crazy about the cargo styling. That trend has come and gone. But the fit of these makes me not care.
The fabric is wonderful. Soft and just the right firmness. I'm back to order two more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BeverlyDe Fabulous fabric and fit!
From the moment I felt the fabric to when I tried the Southport Cargo Shorts on, I was hooked. Ordering these shorts in every color! Thank you L L Bean for a fabulous product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby thelonehiker perfect for hiking
I LOVE these shorts!! got a pair last summer and they were perfect for hiking...lots of pockets and that little bit of stretch gives you greater mobility. I got them in a size 12, my usual size is 10, but after trying both, i opted for the size that didn't emphasize my muffintop! if the waist had stretch in it, 10 would have been fine! They wash beautifully and i didn't notice any shrinkage. Just got my second pair today in indigo and can't wait for warm weather!
