Rated 5 out of 5 by vviolet Very Pleasantly Surprised
I got the Southport Cargo Pants when they first came out, some years ago. The fabric was flimsy, the fit was poor, they were way too long, they looked downright odd buttoned up as "clam diggers," and the drawstring "belt" was chintzyy, floppy, way too long, and completely unnecessary. The colors were blah. If I hadn't been desperate for pants at the time, I would've sent them back. A couple of years later (now), the Southport Cargo Pants still didn't interest me, given my past experience and $$$. So when the Camo version showed up on sale at about one-third the price, I figured I didn't have much to loose. (Even though I hate "camo.") Wow!! These are the best fitting, best length, best fabric-weight/feel pants EVER. The camo is grayish-green and the print is small, compared to the typical camo print. These pants are the BEST. Hopefully, they are still available in my size because I'm going to order another pair! How surprising is THAT?!.

Rated 1 out of 5 by chronrdr2 Too long and too tight
My other LLBean cargo pants (in the same size, different style) fit very well and i love them. I wanted another pair in a different style and color so I was really looking forward to these.
Size 12 Petite were too long and too tight in the butt and waist so a 14 Petite would have been even longer. The rise in the crotch was much too high to be comfortable. The camo pattern was ok but meh.
Everything I have previously ordered from LLBean have always fit and made me happy but not these. I bought these for my vacation but they're going back. What a disappointment. :-(

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pachyden Great except waist
Got these in camo and I adore them, but the waist is a bit uncomfortable. I prefer the length of the petite, but the waist fit me better on the missy. Since I'm too lazy to hem, I pulled the drawcord out of the waistband of the petite and gained a smidge more space. It was easy to pull out the drawcord as it was not tacked down anywhere. Just cut off the knot at one end, and then pull out the cord. I gained just a bit of waist space, not as much as I'd like, but enough that I can wear the pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2Beachdogs One size too small
Llbean size 6 have always fit me perfectly. These pants fit more like a size 4 so I had to return them. They were great looking pants so I was disappointed that I had to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shorty1954 LOVE THESE!!!!!
I love these just wished I would have saw them sooner, PLEASE get more fall colors in need them very bad. I have the navy and moss but I could use dark brown, deep plum, dark orange like a rust, and a deep blue red. even a dark pine green would be nice for the fall. Love the way they fit they wear really well. Everyone loves them I am an out door kind of person and when it's a little damp out I just roll them up and go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MainetoMissouri Tight Waist
Really nice everywhere except the waist. I love the fabric, but the tight waist makes the drawstring useless.

These pants are well made. The material is really nice. Not heavy or bulky. Great for working out doors. Average size 10 fit perfectly.
Ordered a second pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rbhoughak Bummer. In the bum.
I wanted to love these pants. Had my hopes up waiting for the green bag. But they were pretty awful on. I have a shorter rise and these are for the well endowed rise folks. Looked frumpy and not cute. The fabric felt great and the plum color was a great juxtaposition to the more masculine cargo pant. I was bummed. They went back in that green bag ....
For reference. On the cusps of 30, 5'9", 145 lbs. ordered an 8 tall. Good fit overall if it wasn't for the rise issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GCHGolden Too bad these are going away!
These are my favorite pants. I have them in every color and find them to be very useful. When I walk my dogs, there are pockets for pick-up bags, treats, keys, cellphone, a medical device. Awesome when I don't want to carry a purse.
I am very sad to see that these are selling out in every color and size. It looks like Bean is discontinuing them. Please don't! I guess I will have to start searching the web for replacement cargo pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AWorldTraveler Generously cut, ready for the road
It is great to find a sturdy pair of pants that does not have an elasticized waist band! These pants are cut generously but are very well made. Lots of great pockets and comfortable from day one. I found the pants to be mostly true in waist size but cut generously in the legs. I usually wear size 8 (5'3", #135). I am keeping the 8s but I am also ordering a size 6 to see if that also fits since the leg cut is generous while the waist is only a little big.
