Rated 2 out of 5 by Crystalynne The most unflattering pair of pants I own, but...
... since it's near impossible to find cargo pants in size talls, I have to keep 'em. My husband insisted I keep them for our 'doomstay' survival kit.
First of all, these are NOT in any way, shape or form 'low' waist. These sat right in the middle of my natural waist, which is sooooooo unflattering. Cut too small in the waist, period.
The hips and butt are cut WAY generously. I don't understand how these can flatter anyone - the modeled pictures have certainly been doctored or the fit has changed dramatically. I can't even find my butt behind all the 'bag' of these pants.
The pockets were roomy and the fabric was soft, where were one of the few pluses.
So yes, I'm keeping them, but only using them to high-tail it out of the city if the world ends. So take this review how you will. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lis17 Love them but could be a lot better
Denim for work would be awsome. Rise is too high comes to my waste, draw string has no function, needs belt loops, I am buying cargo because I carry a lot of stuff incl key sets. Not enough spandex, pants stretch a lot don't bounce back.

These are fabulous pants. Very comfortable and great for everyday casual wear. I am 5'10", so I ordered the Tall, but they are too long for me. I wish there was a Medium Tall option for these pants. That would have worked out better for me.

I have these pants in denim (only on sale for a short time, I'd love to have that option back), khaki, brown taupe, hunter, and lined in eucalyptus. I wear them all the time and love them. They're a tiny bit long for me, even in petite, but all the other L.L.Bean petite pants are just as long, I'm just shorter than the average petite person.
I would buy several pairs of these pants in black -- I have to purchase other brands' cargo pants in black for work, and I would love these pants to replace those other pairs. Please, please, please think about offering them in black. (And a darker denim, too.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lehh Great casual pants!!
I love this pants but I wish they were offered in black and dark brown and/or other dark colors and the waist had a little stretch . It is hard to find long petite cargos! But these pants are a very comfortable and a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NanaRose2 Love these cargo pants!
I first bought these pants according to the sizing chart. Mistake--were too big. Sent them back and got the size I usually buy in the store, size 8. Love the fabric; it is soft and gives. It may give just a bit too much. Be aware the fabric is the sort to stretch. I'm thinking to try a size down again.
Just for store FYI: would love if the right side leg had a slip pocket instead of the covered, easier for keeping a cell phone handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeandoglover2010 Greatest casual pants ever!!!
I purchased the first pair of these pants a few years back. I've worn them dozens of times and they still look new (as does everything I've bought from your store over the years). I have purchased two more pairs in the past week, one from your store in Freeport, ME, and the other on line. I find the side pockets so convenient to carry my phone and money clip - without the bulge experienced when carrying them in the usual pockets, from which the items might drop out. Still searching for a pair of navy or black, which at present are not available in my size..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Harumph What's with the ties?
I like the fit of these pants, but those darned ribbons at the waist are quite unnecessary and are always getting in the way. I think I'll cut them off.
Please keep cargo pants in stock -- there's nothing like them for carrying cameras, binoculars, shears, etc. Good deep side and back pockets, preferably without flaps in back, are essential too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tinglev Great pants, fit great, wash carefully
I LOVE these pants, they fit great and are very comfortable. They have become my "go to" pants instead of binding jeans. The only reason I didn't give them 4 stars is because they shrink easily, even on low dry. I wash them, cold, regular cycle then hang dry them and haven't had a problem since. Plus, hang drying them means no ironing. I just ordered my 3rd pair. Would highly recommend, just watch it on the washing bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by retiredCAteacher comfortable and flattering
At first I found them bulky and stiff. Then I washed them.
They become soft and amazingly comfortable. I do personally like the drawstring to make them a little tighter at the waist.
