Rated 5 out of 5 by PattyM Best for me
I carry most of my weight in my legs and butt. These were perfect, plenty of room, good length and comfortable rise. I bought what I could in my size. Will buy again next season.

Love these shorts. Perfect in every way. Comfortable, good length, cute style. Ordered them in every color but green. Wish they would make them in black, dark brown, grey and maybe light yellow. These would be a good addition to my summer wardrobe. Did I mention the reasonable price. Even better when they're on sale but then colors are very limited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vviolet Very Nice Shorts
1) L.L. Bean--Thanks for the size 2. Wish there were more items in that size, but these shorts fit me perfectly.
2) These shorts are just the right length, don't cut me anywhere, don't ride up. Even with all of those pockets, the shorts aren't lumpy and bulky-looking.
3) Quality fabric, useable neutral go-with-everything colors
4) Well made

Rated 2 out of 5 by katiedidnot not substantial fabric
Returned these shorts as fabric is much lesser quality than fabric LL Bean used in same shorts last year.
Very disappointed that fabric is thinner than last year cargo shorts, same style.
Soft Moss and Classic Khaki colors seem faded, at least to me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SRDakota Pretty good but needs work
I just received these (Misses, 4) and they fit nicely (I normally wear petite sizes). I'm 63 and with a slightly larger waist, proportionately to my hips and thighs, so I like being able to leave the top button undone and just tie the drawstring. I also like the length because I like the additional coverage (I'm past the age point where I should show off my bare thighs, even though I only weigh 106).
However, I think the width of the legs are too wide, making them seem like, as one person remarked, like "mom pants" and/or almost cargo culottes, which make them look unstylish and a bit clunky. I also would like deeper pockets to better secure my iphone.

I have these in light almond, khaki, mint, and dark olive. I just ordered another khaki and light moss. I love these shorts and wear them all the time since purchasing them. Please bring these back in other colors. Another LLBean quality product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GauchoheartBearblood High crotch and high rise
There is nothing positive I can say about these shorts. There is something called "mom jeans". You know what I mean when I say that. These should be called "mom shorts". Awful. Just awful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nimbl Best shorts ever
I love that I can order from L.L. Bean and whatever it is will usually fit! These shorts are so comfortable. They do not sag in the crotch, the waist is snug, but not too tight, and the pockets don't pucker. The length falls just above my knees. I wish the cargo pocket was a little deeper so that my cell phone could be buttoned in, but other than that, these shorts are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarinaMama Perfect, except pockets too small
Just got 'em and they fit me great. Size 8 hits 3 inches above my knee (wish they were longer), and the waist and hips fit perfectly. I'm 5'4'' and weigh 125ish, with not much of a waist so I'll probably remove the drawstring. I do wish the cargo pockets and rear pockets were bigger and that the front pockets were deeper. My iPhone 5C in nonbulky case doesn't fit in either one. But keys can go in a cargo pocket and a ziplock "wallet" can go in one too, or in a rear pocket. I'm keeping the shorts inspite of the small pockets because they were a good buy on the two-a-day and they're a really nice cut and fabric. Even though I don't like to show my 71-year-old wrinkly knees, I will wear these in a heat wave.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MEvacationer Great fit -- but . . . phone problems
These are very well made, great fit and don't ride up. However -- my phone falls out of the slash side pockets because they are too shallow and the button pockets are too small for my Android phone. Very disappointing and a real design flaw.
