Rated 5 out of 5 by CountryMom Fantastic pants but they run big/are expandable
My 10 year old son tore through his snow pants last year and needed a decent pair for snow building and boarding. He loves these. They are infinitely adjustable, which is great for boys. The knees are reinforced, they are very warm, and well padded. They also look "cool." I wish LLB had more options for colors - perhaps some funkier choices like we're seeing on the ski mountain - but now in our second year with these pants and they are fabulous. The pants fit over snowboard and play boots well, so snow stays out and feet stay warm.
We bought a size 8 pant last year, he was wearing size 7/8 pants at the time. Now he's wearing 8/10 pants in other brands, and the 8's still fit. I suspect we'll get another year out of them. Baggy is good, so I'd order on size to slightly down.

Way too big for a boys size 16. Fit was feminine, not for boys. Very bulky and awkward styling. Expensive. I have to pay to ship them back, which is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buffbeanshopper Just what my son wanted!
Ordered size 8 for my average size 8 1/2 year old son and the fit is slightly big. He likes the orange color and the velcro at waist for tightening. Mom likes the insulation and waterproof material to keep him warm and dry on the ski slopes, sledding hills and back yard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTmomma great fit, excellent quality
This is the second pair of these snowpants for my son. His other pair lasted two seasons, thanks to the adjustable waist. My son is normally a size 12 slim. But after discussing the waist sizes with an L.L. Bean rep, opted for the 10. They are plenty long enough, and I was able to cinch the waist so the pants stay up. Definitely plan on using these for two years, as I know the quality is there and they will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreatFallsMom Great Value, High Quality
These are sturdy, well made ski pants that are truly water resistant...they run kind of big but that is OK...The adjustable waist band is great. I'm sure my kids will wear them a couple more seasons.
