Rated 4 out of 5áby ClaredeLune Good pants but a problem for short people
I got similar pants last from LL Beam and am glad that they replaced the metal buttons that kept cutting their threads with plastic ones. The pants are comfortable and provide nice give when bending over. My only caution is for short people. Not only will you will have hem them, you will also have to move the button and tab in the legs that allows you to roll the pants legs and wear like crop pants. If you don't have a bit of sewing ability this will be a problem. Even if you do have sewing ability, it takes time. The tie tabs in the waist seem a waste of time. On another pair, I just cut them off. I wish the zipper was sewn in facing the way zippers on women's pants normally are rather than being sewn in as they are on men's pants.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Pakadu12 Disappointed
I was so excited to see what appeared to be reasonable cargo pants for tall women. I ordered several pair, and don't wear any of them unless there's nothing else clean. Biggest problem: the fabric stretches out, so the pants bag unflatteringly around the hips, fanny, and thighs. Unfortunately, the "favorite fit" doesn't work for me in general -- the waistband sits at the fattest part of my body. Classic fit works well for my shape but there are currently only 2 pants in the Classic/Tall category. LLBean seems to have abandoned us truly tall women. I'm heading over to the men's department where I can buy cargo pants that fit. Not very feminine, but they work.

Rated 2 out of 5áby lalalaelmobarney fit was all wrong for me
I agree with the reviewers who found the waist to be tight and the rest of the pant to be too large. The proportions seemed wrong for me and I don't usually have this challenge with pants.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JeanneMcB Finally size 2's in pants!!!!!
Love, love, love these pants and shorts. I'm so happy to see pants in my size 2 in the regular catalog after all these years. I agree that the waist a little loose, but not enough to make it a problem for me. I love the fabric; being able to throw them in the washer and dryer; and having them come out of the dryer without needing to iron them. I've bought the shorts in two colors and one pair of the pants. I'd love to see more women's pants in petites that are a size 2.

Rated 4 out of 5áby BeansRegular Getting closer to perfect
These are great cargo pants and I own 2 unlined and one lined pair. There are, however, a few changes that I would like to see to make these totally perfect as casual cargos.
The waist and hips run very generous in my normal size 4, making the drawstring waist not optional for me. When the drawstring loosens, the pants start sliding south. I am excited and happy to see these being offered in size 2, which should eliminate this problem. I will be ordering the size 2 soon.
The drawstring limits the ability to wear knit tops untucked. I would still like to see the drawstring eliminated and replaced with the adjustable elastic waist as in the Comfort Trail Pants, allowing for perfect waist adjustment with subtle appearance.
Despite all of the above these are wonderful and very comfortable stretchy (but not the out of shape stretchy) cargo pants for active people, at a reasonable price. The quality of the fabric and the great wash and dry performance keep them near the top of my list of favorites.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Persnickety Way too big in hips
I was excited to find these in Size 2 but while the waist was perfect, the legs were way too baggy and frumpy. I'm small at 4'11" but sturdy at 108 lbs with solid thighs, and I do NOT like pants that are too tight, but these were way too baggy. Had to send them back

Rated 5 out of 5áby Valere great, comfy pants
I LOVE these cargo pants. I have a pair in every color. I wear a 16 petite and the fit is great and the length is perfect. They are wonderfully comfortable and I wear them everywhere. They are exceptional for hiking as I can keep my little Canon Elf camera in one button pocket and kleenex and chapstick in the other. As I see them offer new colors, I snap them up!
