Rated 5 out of 5 by kitten13 great fit
Even though I haven't worn them yet I tried the pants on and they feel wonderful. I bought the tall and should have bought the regular but they will look cute rolled, with the lining showing. The waist is perfect for me, as I don' t like them too high or low risers. They will be great fishing and may not need to wear long johns. Belt loops would have been better than the tie, but even the tie through the waist band is nicely made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by crocheter Lined cargo pants
I ordered these lined pants as the winters in WI are very cold. I have worn these to work and go great with sweaters, etc. They are warm and fit great. They look stylish and yet feel like a great pair of jeans or casual pants. Haven't washed them yet, but I would recommend these to anyone who wants a little warmth either while walking outside or just sitting at a desk during the cooler months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ambk Almost perfect
These are great pants and a huge improvement over the lined jeans that still have the frumpy high rise waist. The lining is soft, the colors are good, size is a bit loose, but still comfortable. I do think the waist is slightly tighter than the fit of the rest of the pants, but this will vary by body type I'm sure. For some reason, the drawstring is SUPER long, but it's better than too short and it's an easy fix.
My only gripe is that the button is on the wrong side - as if they're mens pants. It doesn't seem like it would make a difference, but it does. It pulls a little there and seems shifted a bit. I get used to it when wearing, but it's always a bit uncomfortable at first. The only flaw on otherwise great pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeansRegular Almost Perfect Lined Pants
These are almost perfect for the occasions that you want lined pants for. In a cooler temp house or out doing errands or enjoying the outdoors, these cargo pants are great with all of their secure buttoned pockets. The outside fabric is thick but soft and somewhat stretchy (not the stretch out of size stretchy tho). The flannel is a nice warm inside layer.
I really like that even in the size 4, the pants come in the tall length. I am 5'7" with long legs and the medium talls usually are just long enough for me before washing, so they never get to spend any time in the dryer (hang to dry after stretching legs). With the tall in these, I can actually cuff the hem as shown. I cannot do this with the lined jeans because the 4MT is just long enough to touch my shoes--please LLBean, make the lined jeans and other pants available in 4 Tall also.
I am very excited and happy to see that the unlined version of these pants are coming out in size 2 also, as these pants definitely have a looser than normal for size fit. Both the hips and the waist have a more generous fit (in both lined and unlined) than any of my other LLBean pants, and the drawstring waist is a must use for me. I hope that the lined version will come out in size 2 Tall next fall.
I would like to see the use of more of the adjustable inside elastic waists, as in the Comfort Trail Pants, as this allows for a discreet waist adjustment without the big lump of drawstring in the front.
Overall, these are wonderful, soft, warm and comfortable cargo pants that allow one to be active and go purse-free. I would like to see more seasonal colors please--cayenne, dark green, raisin, deepwater blue, dark gray--those plus size 2 tall in the lined version, and with the adjustable elastic waist, would be true perfection!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanlovesbeans So soft!
These pants are very soft inside and out. They are very comfortable. They do run a little larger than expected. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by br1952 comfortable and a great fit.
The fit was perfect. Sometimes at my age the pants just do not fit right. The length was a little too long but I like my pants long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gritch No give in the waist
The long ties at the waist are for decoration only because it is a set waistband with button. There is no give whatsoever, so I sadly returned these. The color, and lining were otherwise superior.

Love the "favorite fit" waist, feels perfect. Warm on these cold days but I wear them through Fall and Spring too. Fitted just right. I have a few pairs of both colors but am hoping for a few more colors. I'm hooked on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bustermom Best winter pants
These are my new favorite winter pants. Instead of wearing regular slacks with silk long johns, I have been wearing these flannel-lined ones, and through the coldest weather (and we have had some COLD weather this year) they have been warm and comfortable. I even bought a second pair so I could clean the first! Not chic, just useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by peacestew cute n cozy
I was so happy to receive these pants in time for the winter vortex this year. What a blessing to have a cute pair of warm and cozy pants. I love the flannel lining and they fit amazingly. Love, love, love these, and now instead of wanting to move to the equator, I want more of the cold weather so I can keep wearing these. Thank you so much....
