Rated 2 out of 5 by phenixva not for me
The fabric seemed nice until I saw that the whole waistband in back was elastic. Not quite ready to wear elastic waisted pants so they are being returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NellsMom Cool, comfortable, and not restrictive
My husband LOVES these pants. He works in an office where the day-to-day outfit is khakis and a polo shirt. He said that these have been fantastic in the hotter weather. I'm back to get another pair. They may not be cheap, but they keep him comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodfloridianshopper My husband loves these pants
Thank L.L.Bean for the free shipping.
My husband feels so relaxed and comfortable with the comfort waist of these pants. The elastic in the back waist is not bulky and let him to work sat for long hours. The fabric is perfect for the weather in Florida and does not fade easily wash after wash. Three years ago I ordered two pants like these ones in green which are still in good shape. I wash them in cold water almost every 15 days (he wears them a lot) then iron them to maintain them in good shape. I know that they are getting old but my husband loves them because of the features and the color, green. He is a little disappointed because this season L.L.Bean has not made them in color green or whatever specific color green they made before. Please L.L.bean, make them in color green too. We are ordering two more pants next week .

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mooncusser Waited in Vain
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. ;=)
