Rated 5 out of 5 by Brendastarshine perfect other than the weirdly odd high waist
Would it be exaggerating to say I have purchased or ordered or tried on a zillion pants over the years that never fit without alteration , generally the length. Probably. So here went one more try. I am not quite 5'4" and ordered the petite slim version... LOVE the fit.... cant really wear jeggings in public but like close-fitting pants, and these fit the bill. Great stretch and they don't look like cheap cotton knit pants. There's some body to the fabric so they don't billow or hang cheaply. Length just perfect- with shoes on the hems don't touch the floor. The drawback is that odd really-high waist others have mentioned here...mine comes up to almost my bra line! And yes it rolls when you move. So I turn it over, and I seems fine rolled once. I don't really NEED a double-thickness at my waist # who does!?# but.... it works that way. Next trip to the alteration lady I'll probably take both pair along and have her fix them. WHY, with all the comments about the odd high waist, doesn't LLB fix that? I bought the tan and the black. Would love a nice stone, and a taupe # mushroom-y# color as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Monty27 The Perfect Pants
These are the most comfortable pants I've ever owned. The fit is perfect. They feel just like yoga pants, but the fabric is substantial enough for me to wear them to work (at a daycare). The waist is quite high as some others have mentioned but I don't mind it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PetuniaPig Wonderful pants
These are my go-to long pants. They are very comfortable and very cozy. The fabric is soft, holds up wash after wash, and does not shrink or pill. The waist does not fold over and stays in place. I have a curvy figure with a generous waist and these pants fit me great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ComfyClothesCatLady Just retired.. Will live in these!
These are the most comfortable and flattering casual pants that I own. They fit exactly as shown in the pictures. The med tall length is perfect even though I usually need at least a 33" in other pants. I wear a travel belt to hold phone, pedometer, etc. when I go walking. I hope LLBean keeps selling them forever, but am ordering a few extra pairs just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RhondaWCLT Love these pants!
Wearing them for the first time and I love the fit. I am 5'9" tall, and the medium tall length (32") is perfect. I love the higher waist...I am slowing getting away from wearing jeans as I get older, and it's all about comfort now! Can be dressed up or down...they look and feel great! Will be ordering more colors soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusyNana MORE COLORS!!!
Please bring back the chocolate brown and the lighter mushroom brown!!! I do not wear black, grey, or navy, so I am very limited in selections from LL Bean. I love the fit of these pants......live in them since they are so comfortable! I need replacements of the browns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WAoutdoors Nice fit and durable fabric
I own several pair of this pant. At 5'10" it is hard to find pants with enough length. The fit is good and the higher waist helps for cycling. I use these for short distance rides but mostly wear them as weekend casual pants. These come out of the dryer looking good. Eventually the black fades a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColumbusIN Like these pants.
I have had these pants for over two years. I use them to work-out at the Health Center. I wash them in warm water and dry them in the dryer on the lower heat; they come out beautifully. I'm in my 70's, so appreciate the higher waist. I do not like a lower waist. I am 5'4.5" and weigh 120 and the Reg-Small fits fine. I wish I could get this same fabric and cut in a cropped pant. All the cropped have a lower waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by weatherlover Stretchy, comfortable and cool.
I have one of these pants in the slim and in the straight leg style. Both are wonderful! I ordered a Petite medium and the hem is just in the right place. I use these mainly for outdoor walking, but also have begun to wear them for other errands - because they do look good. They wash beautifully and I am hoping they will not fade; so I wash with a gentle detergent. I hope they stay good looking. The material (to me) feels very nice and feels cool against my skin. The waist is high, but that's good for me because it covers my tummy and is very comfortable. I am ordering two more, one slim and one straight leg because I'm afraid LL Bean will not be keeping these long.
