Rated 3 out of 5 by LB155 Ultra Sweats are nice, but very lightweight
I purchased the Ultra Sweats, jacket and pants a month ago. I am returning the pants because they are thin, great for fall only here in Maryland. I like the jacket well enough to keep, and wear it as a shirt vs. a jacket. They are made well, time will be the real test.
I suggest LLBean advertise them as lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flowerchild48 Oh, so soft! Love them!
I am very picky about my sweatpants. I don't like anything tight around my waist and these fit the bill perfectly! I ordered them in a medium and that way I can adjust the waist to my liking. I did find they shrunk a tiny bit after the first washing so they fit nicely and are not baggy. They are a perfect length although they are a bit full in the leg. I tend to like that as well as they don't have a traditional sweat pant elastic leg, giving them a dressier look. The fabric is very, very soft. I have washed mine a number of times and they wash beautifully. I ordered all three pairs in light heather grey. That way if I travel, all my tops match or work with the bottoms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by evgeneia So soft and comfortable
These pants are so soft and comfortable--you won't want to take them off! The material is a nice, solid, mid-weight cotton and the legs are wide enough to be roomy and not clingy. I found them perfect.
One thing--I had to order a petite despite being 5'6 as the length on the regular was too long... Otherwise, they run true to size for my pear shaped body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loretta1085 Dreamy sweats
About a year ago I purchased a 3 piece Ultrasoft sweats set of pants, crew neck sweatshirt and zip up jacket in heather grey. However, I didn't wear it until this winter. What a surprise! I really missed out on close to a year of wearing a super comfortable outfit that is cozy, warm and breathes so I don't freeze or get too warm wearing it. It is even dressy enough to wear to casual places like the grocery store. I am thinking of ordering another set in a different color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aquasizer Soooo comfortable
Many reviewers have issues with these pants. But as far as comfort around the house they are the greatest! I'm 5'3" and 123 pounds. They are a little long but shouldn't be for those taller than me, and I like the wider leg. They do get baggy if you are planning on wearing them for other than casual shopping if you wear them out. But for knocking around in they are the best. I own two pair and will probably order another before they change the style if they haven't already.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JuneE not the same
I bought several pair of these sweats in petite medium and the last pair came way too long and were huge at the bottom, bell bottoms really. Same size. What happened?

Rated 1 out of 5 by nvermont Great fabric, terrible crotch design
L.L. Bean changed the design of their sweat pants a few years ago or more. They have not fit me since, although I keep trying once a season in hopes that the current design has improved. So far, no luck.
The fabric of these pants is wonderful - extremely soft and cozy. But the fit doesn't work for me at all. They are too tight in the rear end, but the worst part is that the crotch is too, um, revealing. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by kycountrygirl Extremely Long
Ordered a size Medium Petite in Olive - liked the color and fit is relaxed but a little high-waisted. The problem - they are extremely long - so long cannot wear even with taller shoes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ohiograms ultrasoftsweats
I ordered both the pants and matching jacket, hoping that these might be close to the sandwashed sweats I have that I love. The material is very thin, not suitable for Ohio winters. Pants were about 4" too long (regular M) and a poor fit. I'm sending them back but giving 2 stars because the dark olive color is so classy and the jacket's styling is nice but it has no room to allow for any shrinkage in the wash. Any chance, LLBean, that you will be bringing back the sandwashed sweats?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Relztrah Perfect if you have a cast on your foot
My poor wife broke her foot in two places and had a huge cast on her foot which was replaced by a huge boot. She couldn't get her normal slacks over the cast and wore three different pairs of these comfortable sweats wherever she went. Thank goodness they come in different colors.
