Rated 1 out of 5 by Beachcomber70 Get Rid of Comfort-Waist Design Element
Bought 2 pairs of Tropic-Weight light colored cargo pants last year. Loved them & still wear them! Now in 2014, I wanted to add some basic pleated chinos in the tropic-weight fabric to my wardrobe...
Come to find out that tropic-weight, pleated chinos only come in "Comfort-Waist style" The comfort-waist feature is the worst design feature that can ever be added to a pair of pants. The over-lapping fabric destroys the fine fashion line and makes men's pants look like they are poorly designed. Please send the comfort-waist feature to the wastebasket... Thank you

Rated 1 out of 5 by CAShopper20 Terrible waist band!
I have several pairs of this classic khaki, but now the style of the waist band has been changed to a pleated 'big butt' look. I very much dislike this change and I'm sending my new order back.

Love the light weight pants. BUT the waist STINKS!!!!!!! This is THE MOST uncomfortable pair of pants I have ever worn. If it had a regular waist these would be awsome. Cancelled the order on a second pair never again with this waist.

I have 2 pair of these pants. I absolutely love them. Unfortunately, you no longer offer a 46" waist.

Happy at first to see the return of one of LL Bean's finest summer trousers. However, that turned into dismay to realize they came only in so called comfort waist. With elastic fully half way around the waist band (not subtle elastic sides advertised) the effect was spoiled and frankly the comfort waist was not comfortable but tight.
Pleased to see in the current catalogue that you have finally, finally brought back the original Fixed Waist although only in plain front.

by TexasDave1654 Great Pants, Lightweight Breathable
I purchased these for an off shore fishing trip, when I was a little younger I?d been out in shorts and a tee shirt but in my old age I have to take a drug that makes me burn easily. These pants were great lightweight, breathable and cool. I purchased one of their long sleeved shirts to go with them. The first long sleeved shirt that I?ve bought in over 40 years. I?d definitely buy again?. Oh my boy, his bride and I limited out on Red Snapper 6 fish 48 Lbs, out of Saint Andrews Bay Panama City Beach Florida. ;=)

Rated 2 out of 5 by mcprof Bring back hidden comfort waist
My husband likes the comfort waistband, especially for traveling, but the more recent version of these pants simply has gathered elastic across the back instead of the hidden waistband. I'm sending these back, as he doesn't like the "old man" style. I guess he'll wear his two old pair until they totally wear out. I would pay more for the older style with the hidden waistband, if available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oscarx Bring back your old chinos!
Nice pants,great fabric. A little long in the leg. Don't care for the elastic in the rear of waistband - but you are severely limited in choices if you want natural cotton that hasn't been treated for wrinkle and stain resistance. Please bring back your old chinos!
