Rated 5 out of 5áby TeacherSailor My favorite pants
I bought a pair of these last summer, and liked them so much I have picked up almost one in every color! The 8 Petite fits me at 5'2" and fluctuating between 139 to 145 lbs. I work in a business casual, but professional, environment and these pressed nicely with a button-down blouse or nice sweater fit the bill. The pockets are a good size and quite functional, but the cut is feminine and modern. I've only rolled and buttoned them up a few times, but they look cute like that as well, although decidedly more casual.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Suttol Nice looking Pants, great fabric
Purchased these pants about 2 months ago. Really like the fabric. Found the pants just a smidge short, I like my pants a tad longer it is just a preference of taste. The fit is loose and comfy, I moved the button at the waist over about 1/2 " because it felt too snug. The waist is cut a little too contoured for a below the waist style, for the rest of the pant is perfect, loose and causal. I will definitely purchase another pair.

Rated 3 out of 5áby swallow two big drawbacks...
I've bought a lot of LL Bean trousers over the years, paying customs and the penalty for the Canadian dollar because LL Bean seems to be the only company anywhere that makes clothes that actually fit me. But for the first time ever I'm going to have to hem a pair of LL Bean pants! They say petite on the label but they are a good inch and a half to two inches too long.
The second drawback is the non-useful pockets. I guess I could use them to rest my hands, but if I put in a coin or a little pen, for sure they wouldn't be there by the end of the day.
If not for these two drawbacks I'd give them a 5: lovely material, great colour, and a nice look.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ActiveEngineer Great fit, feel and real pockets!
I have been looking for women cargo pants for months that are functional, and comfortable yet not baggy - these are them! Nice quality construction, soft/comfortable material, LOVE the fit. Not too tight with pockets that I can actually use. The length is perfect - a little long so that the ankles are not showing but not dragging on the floor. I don't have to get them hemmed. Waist is perfect with the draw string to take in a little extra if needed. Love the button on the waist - it doesn't rely totally on the draw string. Rise is comfortable yet not too high. I bought two in different colors!! (And I don't usually do that).

Rated 5 out of 5áby ViewFromAMountain Great fit, perfect length, nice fabric
I just love these pants. I ordered them in tall and will be ordering a few more colors, they fit just right. I am 5'11" so it is very hard to find womens pants that fit in length as well as rise. The weight is great for cool Summer evenings in the mountains and will be perfect for Early Autumn as well.
Please keep carrying pants that will fit us tall Ladies !

Rated 4 out of 5áby booklover99 Buttons pop off
I like these pants very much (I bought two pairs) but I am in the process of sewing a button back on for the fourth time. They are not too tight but the buttonholes seem a bit small and the buttons very flat and hard to fasten. Other than that they are great pants.

Rated 4 out of 5áby smalltownstyle Likes comfortable clothes that look good too
I purchased my standard size 4 tall. The pant is a bit roomy in the hips, but overall they look good and the fabric is very comfortable. The written reviews of this pant were inconsistent regarding the sizing and length. If you carry a bit more weight in the tummy area, the sizing may be more difficult to predict. They are certainly a casual pant, but I did wear them to the office today. I will buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SeasonedCitizen78 Southport Cargo Pants

Rated 4 out of 5áby Evyy Soft, comfortable, odd button placement.
These pants are not fitted, as previously reviewed, but very comfortable with enough room to move when gardening, hiking, etc.
One thing that gave me pause - aren't women's pants closure buttons traditionally sewn on the right hand side above the zipper? I have two pair of southport cargo pants and the button is on the left, while all other women's pants in my closet are on the right. Traditionally men's buttons were sewn on the left, women's on the right.
Took me a while to figure out why I was having trouble buttoning the closure when for 50 years I have been doing it in the opposite direction.
Other than that, a shorter drawstring and more colors such as black or dark navy would be most welcome.

Rated 3 out of 5áby canuck10 Too Baggy
I'm 5' 9" tall and 150 lbs. Finding pants that are long enough for me is a challenge. LL Bean has a very limited selection for tall women. I ordered these pants in a tall size, and the length is perfect, however, the bum and thigh part of the pants is extremely baggy and unflattering.
