Rated 4 out of 5 by MHannajo Color, not quality review
I'm only commenting on the color, not the quality of these pants as I didn't take them out of their packaging. I was exchanging another version in "Stone," realizing that the "Putty" color might not do it for me. The Putty is true to what I saw on-line (but hoped might vary just enough in-person and be more attractive to me), but I didn't care for it; much prefer stone/gray and what I think of as more neutral. Perhaps LL will consider offering them in Stone. :)
As always, the return/exchange process was a BREEZE and I so appreciate this when the catalog and on-line purchase experience is really my only option for shopping with LL. I remain as big and loyal a fan as ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SailorMooner Love, love my new pants!
Updated narrower legs are flattering and overall fit is terrific! Love the belt, marked left/right zippers and handy pockets. I feel great in these and the repellant feature works like a charm. Bottom of legs fold and hold for a neat look.

Like that they come in bigger sizes. Nice material that dries fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SailorMooner Another Winner!!
Amazing quality and fit and bug protection. Love them. Still unnecessarily wide legs so not as attractive as they could be in the legs. Love the handy zip off feature. Excellent flattering fit in the seat and waist with a great easy clip belt

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsentity Keeps the bugs away, cleans easily
These pants are lightweight zip-offs with very deep pockets. I wore them on a trip to Costa Rica, which wasn't very buggy in July. But they have these little black flies that are very persistent. They will find the one square millimeter of skin you missed when applying your bug repellent and bite you there. They swarm on you the way New England black flies do, though they don't get into your eyes and nose. You don't feel the bites, but oh man, do they itch afterward! I wore the pants without any other insect repellent, and never got a bite on my legs. (I got the bites on my arms and neck, where I'd applied 30% DEET bug repellent with wipes.) The down side is that when it's 85 degrees and humid, any long pants are going to make you feel hotter. For me, it was worth it.
They got dirty on one muddy hike, and I was able to wash them out in the hotel room sink. They dried in a few hours on a hanger. We had AC in the room.
I ordered my usual size, and it was a bit too big, but not enough that I wanted to return them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FCRGR Horrible fit
Like the feel of the pant but the puffy legs are just horrible. I thought they were outdoor pants and not body builder pants.

I Iove these pants. They are the perfect weight to wear in warm weather. I love them enough to have 2 pairs. I originally bought them to wear while sightseeing in Alaska but I couldn't wait.
They are awesome!

They work. I just wish they were in a more breathable fabric. My dr frowns on my wearing nylon pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LongDistanceTrekker Zipped off inseam is way too short
I love these pants! they feel great on and I love the pocket configuration. BUT, the inseam on the zip off legs is way too short for me. I like something more in the range of 10-11 inches, or just below the knee. I am finding it very difficult to find zip off pants with a longer inseam. I am an older adult and I don"t like shorts that are too short, they are uncomfortable and the legs creep up while I walk and I am constantly having to pull them down. If the zipped off inseam were longer I'd buy these in a minute. In fact, I would buy more than two. So I am returning these and continue my look out for zip offs with longer inseams. Please ask manufacturer to make these same pants with a longer zip off inseam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vtsong Really nice hiking pants
I ordered these to replace an older pair that was now too large....there are a few changes, and for the better....now the zip off to convert to shorts is lower, creating longer shorts. These are lightweight, good pockets, and the insect repellant super.
I wear these a lot.
Fit is baggy, but I did find the med waist a bit tight.
