Rated 3 out of 5 by LSCH Too tall in crotch
I had read the reviews, but it is true, the distance between the waistband and the crotch is huge. I do like the capri aspect to reduce bunching around the ankles. I will deal with it, but the pattern makers need to look at the cut of this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PuppyChow Ill-fitted mess
Baggy, terrible fit, bad idea to purchase them to wear underneath jeans. The banded pant legs would not stay in place; I can just picture they keep rising up underneath my pants. I have never returned a piece of garment to LL Bean so fast like these pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosebudd Worked like a charm.
I only gave the pants a four star because I haven't washed them yet. Received them for Christmas and used them for the first time today, clearing snow that Hercules left yesterday. They are so warm, yet so lightweight that you don't even know you are wearing them. It made shoveling snow a breeze.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DiscerningStyle Lightweigt but warm
These silk pants are great for wearing under jeans because they are thin, but they still keep the cold out. However, they were too long in the stride (even though I ordered the Petite size). I had to have them altered so the waist band would not show when I wear low-cut jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tsip wrong size - returned
The sizing chart didn't work well for the silk long underwear; they were huge, so I returned them for a full refund.
It was fast and easy... I mailed them to L.L. Bean on 12/10 and received an email on 12/12 to notify me that they received my return and had credited my card!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusieInFlagstaff The Fit
The material is great and it is well put together, but I ordered the capri and it is down to my ankle. I am 5'2 1/2" and weigh 125. I suppose I should have bought the petite. But they were capri. The reviews weren't clear on length. They look, on me, like the long, long underwear. I will keep them and wear them under pants and not under a skirt. I wanted to wear them under a skirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TC219101 The best wind-breaker pants for cold weather
This purchase was a gift for a daughter who works both indoors and outdoors; she was complaining of having problems finding pants warm enough for her outdoor work.
I've used these capri pants with my slacks in cold weather wear for years. That "long walk" from the car to the building was very chilling; these pants cut that windchill, "period"! Plus, being indoors all day was NOT uncomfortable. They wash easily, on delicate and dry quickly!
PS - this daughter was very pleased with the pants performance this week!

Rated 5 out of 5 Year-round Comfort
We live in a costal area where it is cool to cold almost every day. These silk capris are perfect for keeping my thighs warm in summer and in winter. In black, and wearing black knee highs, they look really nice with a skirt. I have worn them for years now, and buy several pair at a time. They last 2 - 4 years (I always wear out the knees). So comfortable, with a loose waist. Please never stop carrying them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alex2b Like them but returning for long
I got this for my first winter on the east coast on the recommendation of my mom and other reviews that cropped pants keep your thighs warm and work well for boots. That maybe true but once i put them on my lower legs felt too cold. I may want them back for boots but when wearing other shoes I am cold and aware of the band on my leg. They are very thin so work well with jeans and feel warm. I am sending them back and ordering the regular pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldyBeaner Capri - shortening free
I love Capri style---my legs are too short for even "petite" and I hate to sew, so this length is perfect! So is the use it was intended for. Warmth for a cool indoors, or for in-and-out of car errands in winter. Also good as pajama bottom. Very soft and comfortable.
