Rated 2 out of 5 by mkmaryland sent back
Kind of flimsy material and an unflattering fit. The "comfort waist" was awkward with gaps in the pockets to allow for expansion. I sent these back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SanAntonioRetiree Very comfortable, excellent fit
Just what I wanted -- I love the original fit waist (and hidden expansion) and the longer length. They launder well, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Princess137 Great for golf
I always have trouble getting a ball marker out of my pocket, with this handy little pocket ( if you are right handed) I now can reach in without a bunch of tees falling all over and grab my ball marker. It's the little things that make the difference ! Length is great too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by scgrandmama Way too small
These shorts looked very nice in the catalog, and I thought they would be perfect for golf. I ordered my usual size, but when they arrived, I couldn't button them. They were very small for the size indicated.

I really like these shorts. The material is comfortable and washes well. The longer length is great. I like the color choices. I will purchase these again if needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RebeccaLynne Not Perfect, but close enough
I saw the cargo shorts when I visited the website to buy a new pair of 9" shorts to replace my well worn pair. I have four pairs of LLBean 9" shorts all total. Three of my old pairs are without the elastic insert. I don't particularly like the elastic because it squeezes me, but I can live with it. The cargo shorts seem to be cut a bit skimpy through the hips; I bought size 14, and they fit like my previously purchased non-cargo style size 12. I DO like the two extra #cargo# pockets. They are just right for my flip phone and car keys. These shorts aren't perfect, but close enough that I'll order an additional pair, because I love the roomy front pockets as well as the cargo pockets. There is a back pocket as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by retired70now Cargo shorts
Shorts are a comfortable length, look nice, and are very comfortable to wear. Not many wrinkles. Will buy shorts from LL Bean the next time I need shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasDixie Great fit - great length!
I've had Bayside shorts before but never these cargos. They are super-duper! I love them! The length is perfect. I have skinny legs and like the longer length. They "fill the bill" all around!

Rated 3 out of 5 by supercarefulshopper Good walking shorts
I bought these shorts for the gym and casual activities in order to have my phone with me. The phone pocket is a bit short. It fits but you can not button it to keep it from falling out. It would not be acceptable for rough terrain or crowded streets. The front pockets are very deep but you may need to buy a size larger if you wanted to carry anything in them. The back welt pocket is very shallow.
The fabric looks and feels good. I have not had a chance to wash them yet to check wrinkle-free. The adjustable waist band is a necessity to fit, or at least to sit down. These shorts run a bit tighter than I expected for the size. They will work for my immediate needs but might order a different size next time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl The legs are too wide and long for me.
I love the fabric in these shorts and the beige color is lovely.
BUT, the legs stuck straight out on me. I don't think my legs would be considered skinny but the leg holes on these shorts is huge.
I started comparing the leg holes on these shorts with my old ones I wanted to replace, and my old ones were not nearly as big.
Plus, on the model they are quite above her knee. On mine they hit me right above the knee and it did not look good from the back especially. I'm 5'7" so I'm shocked the they hit right at the top of my knees.
So LLBean please come out with shorts that don't have such big legs. :)
