Rated 4 out of 5 by mysteryfan1024 Like these a lot!
Pros: Nice soft fabric, lots of pockets, belt loops
Cons: waist is a bit loose - how about making it tighter and adding a little elastic?
Also, the quarter pockets could be deeper. I am afraid my iPhone 4S (i.e., small for an iPhone) will slip out.
Overall, I like to wear them - the fabric feels so nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by altaskier PERFECT FOR ME
I always have problems with pants fitting my long rise. I have been searching for a hiking pant that works for my fit problem. I always order a size up to get the rise long enough. But that has not worked on other LL Bean hiking pants until I tried these. Although I did order a size larger than usual, the stride is perfect for me. I also love the light weight fabric and stretch. I know I will enjoy these. Plan to order another color!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mom22teens Ditto to the review below "Not What I expected"
I ordered these pants and shorts for a trip to the Galapagos and Peru. I am 5'5", 140 pounds and pear shape. When I tried them on they seem to fit relatively well. But the material was so thin that I didn't think they'd hold up well to the hikes/travel and would probably show panty lines and everything else. Took them back. I had ordered a similar pair from an LLBean competitor and will be taking them. Much stronger material without being heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JanitorJan excellent styling but way too big
These pants are light and airy with lots of handy pockets. However I had to buy one size down and even still the waist is loose. I plan to take it in. The rest of the fit is nice which for me means loose fitting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Redwing88 Great travel pants, sizing is a full size too big
I bought these to take on safari - they were perfect, quick drying, lightweight. I should have listened to others about sizing though - when I first tried them on a 10 fit fine (I'm 5'6", 148 lbs) but after a few hours' wear they were very loose and baggy. I returned them for an 8 (I never wear an 8, I wear a 10 in other LLBean pants) and these are a much better fit, not too tight, still very comfy. They are long enough but just barely - might be too short on a taller gal.

These pants are great! Light weight but feel more like a polyester w/ a touch of nylon(check contents). Waist is comfortable w/ shirt tucked in and belted. Green is hard to find in trail pants, but here they are! If I needed another pair of green, I would definitely buy these again. Washes and dries well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gazellintraining Not quite what I expected
These pants have lots of good qualities, however, the were not quite what I was expecting, mainly because the fabric was extremely thin! I actually feel quite naked when wearing them! Too flimsy for my taste but the multiple zip pockets and general construction was superb. The lining inside the waistband was a nice touch and keeps things tucked in or is very soft to the skin if not tucking in.
I normally wear a size 10 and ordered the Medium. They are quite loose which I thought would be okay so I could tuck shirts in but now I feel they just look a little sloppy. I'm afraid if I get the smaller size they will show underwear lines, etc. because the fabric is so thin. As usual, I'm not on the size chart! Haha.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoNicknameIdeas Amazingly comfortable--but not durable at all
These pants are almost absolutely the perfect hiking pants. They are so light and comfortable that they feel like I'm wearing air. If they get wet, they dry incredibly fast. They pack down small and take up almost no space at all. They are cool in hot weather, but I'm also perfectly happy wearing them when it's chilly. Did I mention how wonderfully comfortable they are?
However, despite how much I love wearing these pants, they have a serious flaw: durability. I've never had a pair of pants that were so easy to damage. Every time I wear them, I find more snags in the material, and now there is a gaping hole where I rubbed my leg slightly against a rock. These are supposed to be hiking pants, but they don't survive the outdoors very well.
I agree with the other reviewers that said the pants stretch a lot. They start to sag by the end of the day. If not for that, they would fit perfectly in my normal size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frogger44 Almost a winner
Haven't worn these yet -- may have to return item if I can't figure out a way to take waist in to fit me. The waist gaps.
However, my first impression is that the fabric is wonderful -- very light weight so it should dry quickly, and should be very comfortable for hikes, travel, etc.
If I can get waist to fit and then wear the pants, I will return for further update.
