I don't buy clothes on line but took a chance with these - I am a little bit pear shaped and can be disappointed often with how pants grab around my thighs or gape at the waist. I pulled the size 10's on I ordered after measuring myself and looking at the chart, and they just fit perfectly. Wow. I am 5ft 6" and currently weigh around 150lb. The regular inseam is perfect, not dragging but not short (I am about 30.5") - very happy with the pants. I got them in pink, tempted to get another pair in another colour!

I purchased these in 18, which is my usual size. They fit very nicely, a bit more loose than the 1912 jeans which I also purchased (and also love), but comfy-loose, not sloppy-loose. They also look quite nice! I'm a very happy person today.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AntoniaM Length a problem
I like the feel of these cargo pants. BUT, the petite size length is definitely NOT for those 5'3" and shorter. I had to shorten these pants over an inch. I like the drawstring, too, so the back of the waist band doesn't gap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jetlaya67 Super comfortable!
Just got my pants in the mail today. I tried them on to see how they fit and they are very nice. I wear a size 2 (110 lbs, 5'2"). The pants are a little on the loose side but thanks to the tie string it accommodated my waist size. They are a nice change from my "uniform" of skinny jeans and boot cut jeans. I ordered the regular length and it is a bit long, but a petite would have been too short. I can't wait to wash them and see how they hold up. So far, I am very pleased!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JET1973 More For The Office Than Hiking Outdoors
I bought these pants for a trip to Europe this summer and for outdoor activities, like hiking. When I got them, just now, I found that they are made of a thicker material than other cargo pants I bought from LLBean. Although they are cargo pants they have a more "formal" look to them. One of the reasons for this formal look, I think, is that I bought them in dark plum. It's not a hippy, outdoorsy plum but rather a color you would see on bridesmaids in a Fall wedding. Overall, they are a nice pair of pants. They are on the loose side. I will wear them to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1PickyMomma These pants are great
These pants have some give to them so order the next size down. Happy dance, right?! I like the give. It makes them more livable for all day. The fit is very nice. Looks feminine while being useful. They might come out of the dryer a bit tight but they loosen up as the day goes on. I also ordered the med tall inseam. I like mine long. I'm 5'7". They sit at the waist. I'm very very happy with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GCHGolden Love these pants!
I have a pair of Southport pants in every color. They are perfect for walking the dogs and competing in dog sports. The cargo pockets hold what I need without having to carry a purse. There is plenty of space for treats, pick-up bags, my phone, car keys, etc.
My only concern is that in the newest pairs, summer - fall 2014, the front pockets are more shallow. I always have a chapstick in my pocket and lately it has been falling out. I measured the depth of the pockets compared to previous years and they have lost about 1". I am hoping this is a manufacturing defect and not a permanent change!
LL Bean: I would LOVE to see these pants in black! And white or ivory for summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alex721 these do NOT sit low on the waist
LL Bean must have a different definition of "sits lower on the waist" than I do, because these definitely sit ON my waist. From the description I was expecting something more of a hiphugger. The pants fit through my hips and thighs, but are tight on my waist. The fabric is quite nice--smooth and soft. I would have really liked these had they actually sat "lower on the waist."

I have been looking for camo cargo pants for the longest time and finally found a pair I am totally happy with.. They are exceptional quality - great fabric, made extremely well, and can be worn year round. Thank you LL Bean.

These pants look great on and the material is super soft. They wash well and if taken out of the dryer promptly do not require ironing. I ordered the olive color and plan to buy a second pair. Love, love, love these pants, and highly recommend them.
