Rated 2 out of 5 by RJfire Ok pants. Need improvement.
These pants fit well, with big legs. They are nice and light weight yet block the wind well, and are water proof for the most part. They are very noisy and with the wide legs, make even more noise. I've had mine for just over a year now and wearing them hunting the pants are wearing through on the lower legs from grass and briars. These could be great pants, if constructed a little better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Seniorduckhunter Waterproof sportsmanship chinos
Don't get me wrong these pants are very well made and are a comfortable fit, but they are stiff, noisy and cold against the skin because they are not lined.
Years ago I purchased a pair of LL Bean waterproof gore-tex pants that were perfect. They were flexible,quite, lined and waterproof. I still have them after many years but they are well worn and not as waterproof as they once were. If you could make these pants available again with the added pockets of your new waterproof pants you would have a winner. The following is the information off the garment I.D. Tag.
Shell: 100 percent Nylon
Lining: 100 percent polyester RN 71341
And the best part, they were made in the USA
I will attempt to attach a photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdsNDogs EXCELLENT !!!
I've been hunting birds for 55 years all over the country. In that time I've worn out or thrown out a pretty fair bunch of different makes & models: plain, fancy, bargains and budget busters.
I just wore a new pair of these waterproof chinos in a 2 week grouse hunt in Michigan's UP & I loved them. They're light, comfortable, absolutely water proof & were impermeable to thorns & briars.
If these things can hold up over time, they will have been the most ideal hunting pant I've owned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JFarm Not Bean Quality I have grown to expect
The pants seem loud/Krinkly... No zippers for boot access. The matching Jacket/Shell was a disappointment as well however the material was quiet. Why not make the pants out of the same material as the jacket?? No Drawstrings at the waist to keep the wind out and only 2 outer pockets on jacket. Come on LL.. I did like the MODB camo pattern and would have dealt with the jacket or ordered the more expensive technical coat if the pants were up to par. I read another review and it stated the Zip in fleece does not even have a drawstring... Just a $6.50 mistake for shipping charge on return no big loss...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Drahthaar Huge leg size
Got these pants a few days ago because I wanted a warm weather pant, that would repel water from the morning dew. They sure do that, wore them in the rain today for a few hours and was completely dry, nice and little. The only reason I didn't give them a 5, is the legs are huge! I wear a 34 waist and it is a little lose, but the 32 is to small. The leg size is not proportional to the waist on the 32 or 34 waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saratogian Another well made LLBean product
Very well-made, durable and thoroughly waterproof pants. Definitely not too warm - they actually seem to breathe well despite being waterproof. Not sure how they do it, but it works. These are perfect for the field, but not too casual for normal wear. Good for golf on rainy days, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dannycrawf superb pants
I purchased these pants last year looking for a waterproof solution to early morning upland bird hunts. WOW!! Not only were they waterproof, but comfortable as heck. Never got wet or overheated. I really put these pants to task. Working in heavy cover, blackberry brambles, and quail brush, these pants really held their own. Not to mention the "good looking pants" comments by fellow hunters. Will definitely be adding another pair to my hunting closet!

Great sportsman's pants. Light and waterproof. Too noisy for deer hunting, but great for dog training, dove shooting, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jimmyboy Golfers! You need these!
I bought a pair of these waterproof pants for a recent golfing trip to Scotland, and boy did I put them to the test. Several days of playing in 45 deg temps, 30 mph winds, and driving rain...and I stayed absolutely dry and comfortable. I just wore a pair of lightweight LLBean long underwear bottoms under them on the coldest days. No need to carry traditional rain pants, these do the job rain or shine!
