Rated 4 out of 5 by BensMom great but room for improvement
I love the fit and fabric but they did shrink up so the length is a bit short for me now (I'm 5'6") . They don't need to be ironed which makes them great for travel. They are very comfortable to hike, walk, or lounge around in. I hope LL bean offers these again, perhaps with a longer length option. Also, the button at the fly did pop off and I had to sew it back on. The waist is loose so it wasn't an issue of too much tension, just poorly sewn in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeMoS Good choice
Got these pants today have not worn them, but fit was good, perfect length, I am 5'6", and length was perfect for me. They r ripstop fabric, which I love in pants, 99%cotton, 1% spandex, so should not shrink when laundered. I have several pair of ripstop pants,wear good and do not wrinkle bad like some pants. Got the Ledge color, was not as dark as in picture, a light tan color of which was good for me. llbean has always stood behind any purchases I have made, so I am sure should they shrink, I can return them. But hopefully don't have any problems because I love the pants. Thanks again for quality from llbean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hldShopper bad buttons
Pants are fine- drawstring is a bit fussy - I'd prefer belt loops, but ok to get ripstop fabric and cargo pockets. The choice of the thin metal buttons is unfortunate. They are cute with the LLBean info and all, but function should trump form- these don't. The thin metal cuts the thread when under any strain - like at the waistband. Replaced the button with a plastic one - hope for more than two wearings before it gives up. Pocket buttons get no to less strain- should be ok.
I note other comments about buttons - not just me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanieInCanada Almost a Terrific Pair of Pants
I loved the style, fit, colour, and fabric, and would happily give these pants 5/5 except for two things:
1) They are short. I can only wear them rolled up as capris. If I try to wear them full-length, they are unflattering short. I'm only 5' 6" but would need to order them in "Tall" next time.
2) Each of the first three times I wore them, a button popped off, so I've lost three buttons. One of them I found and can sew back on, but the others really flew off and I couldn't find them (I was outdoors).
If LL Bean could add some length, and affix the buttons more sturdily, this would be a terrific pair of pants

Rated 4 out of 5 by wumlet Wonderful pants for travel
I love these pants. I wore them a lot on my 3 week trip to Europe. They are very comfortable and wash well, do not need ironing. The only problem I had is the waistline button fell off after a few days. They do run short, however. I am 5' 4" and the length was just shy of being perfect. I wish the blue were available in my size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JMCM Wow... Sizes seem to be getting even bigger!
I used to be able to order size 4 pants/skirts from LLBean but LLBean has made the size 4 dimensions larger and larger over the years. I recently gained a few pounds so thought I would give these pants a try in size 4. But they are still way, way too big. I really like the style, fabric, and color so I gave it a 3 rating. It would have been a 4 or 5 had they been available in a size 2 or had the size 4 been closer to a true size 4. I ordered a different style (that I didn't like as well in the photos) in a size 2 and will be keeping my fingers crossed that they'll fit. Please LLBean ... more options in size 2!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brucie2 Ripstop Cargo Pants
As promised, the material is sturdy & breathable :-) I am 5' 4" so as usual I ordered reg. size not Petite. Inseam measures 30" before & after being washed. But, when I sit down, too much ankle is showing! Someone wrote about these being "ankle pants!" Perhaps Bean could add another inch or two to the length? Overall, they are a nice pr. of pants :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdwaldon Ripstop Cargo Pants
I ordered my 3rd pair of these pants. Love, love them. I love them as cropped pants now, but will like them in the fall as ankle pants. I would love for you to bring these back in other colors next spring. I would also love this material for shorts. Another quality item from LLBean. I am thinking about getting a 2nd pair in aqua sky for next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveSign Great material, great fit, love them as capris
This is my 2nd pair of these pants. I got them in the sea salt and then the brown. They fit true to size and don't gap in the back. After wearing them for a few hours, they loosen up a bit which is nice. The sea salt is see-through so I wear a long shirt with them. I love the material and how they roll up to capri length. I changed out the button at the zipper due to reviews that said it might break. When left long, the pants could be longer, but the write up is honest and says the length. I wish they'd make them in 30-32 length in the future. I'm 5'8" and they are a tad short but I love them enough that I kept them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarKat Best trail riding pants
I have these in several colors. They wash well and require no ironing. They are medium to light weight and are great for summer horseback riding. I use the cargo pocket for cell phone and horse treats. The fit is true to size and allows for great freedom of movement. They look and feel great on. I love them.
