Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtistClothes Great pants. Be aware of shorter length.
I got my first pair of these pants a few weeks ago, and liked them so much, I ordered another pair of the same color (not as many color choices as I'd like). The fabric is soft and of a medium weight. They launder well and need no ironing.
The one problem - which isn't a problem as long as you know about it before you order - is that the length is a good 1-1/2" shorter than the normal length for pants. I wear size 6 - 8 and have never had to get a Medium Tall size before, but I definitely did this time. I should have read all the measurements first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dickswife Great pants but....
The side pockets need to be a little deeper and the length overall is a bit short after washing...
I am 5'8 and always order a medium tall and they were good until washed then they shrunk about 1 1/2 inch.
Other than the above mentioned - they are great fitting pants and wear well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lainieE comfortable and good fit
Soft, they fit well, waistband is very comfortable. Fabric is nice, a little heavy for outdoor summer wear but great for work and moving around otherwise. Can wear with a top tucked in or not. I was looking for another color but only one color is available in my size, disappointing. I have a forest green which I love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IslanderRouter Love these pants
I bought a pair of these pants and liked them so much I bought two more pairs. I own them in Birch, Mallard, and a Sage Green. I like the colors. They are very soft and comfortable and a bit more dressy than jeans. They wash and dry nicely too.
I repeat another review that expressed a wish for belt loops.
I am losing weight, however, hurray!!! I was just checking on availability. I hope that they will be available when I am ready to order smaller sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WNCtransplant Comfortable but too short (petite too short)
I liked these pants and they are comfortable. Liked the color...liked the comfortable material. I ordered a petite size 10 and they fit fine but were 2 inches too short. I am 5' 3" and sometimes the petites are a hair too short and the regulars a hair too long...but these were 2 inches too short. I had hoped I'd be able to let out some material, but there was not enough extra (I did this on some other beans pants).
I returned them and purchased the straight chinos. These are a heavy weight pants...fine for winter/fall/early spring and I loved the cotton material...may order another pair in regular later. Liked the stone color too.

Love the material, good weight for the South where I live. I have actually ordered another pair because of the fit and style. Could be a little longer, but I am 5' 8". Will just be careful when washing and just hang to dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JBerd Nice, but rise was a little short
I got the Petite 8 for my mom, and the overall size and length was good, but the rise was a it short. We returned it for one size up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BeanFan55 Comfy but...
These pants feel great on, but I was shocked to see myself in a side-view photo while wearing them - there's a big bulge in the belly that isn't mine - the zipper/material poofs out there when I sit. They run short so I had to get a medium tall (I'm 5' 5 3/4" and regular lengths usually fit fine, but not in these pants). The cargo pockets need flaps, only have a loop closure, so not very secure if carrying numerous small items. The loop on the back pockets is always coming undone. The side pockets are way too shallow to hold anything. On the plus side, the material is thick and soft, the back waistband is comfortable and hugs the waist so no gaps or pinching, and the cargo pockets (my first pair of cargo pants) hold a cellphone or wallet. Joy of joys, they even have a regular rise; no uber-short zipper here! I lived in them over the Fall and Spring as they are so comfy (errands and weekends; not for work). They'd be too hot for summer. Wish there were more colors (black, navy, light grey, sage green), plus make the pocket changes and cut out the poofy zipper when sitting, and I'll buy more. At my age, comfort trumps looks and it's hard to find pants that fit my middle-aged shape. A good try LL Bean, but they need some work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jefferie So...comfortable!!
I am 51 and no longer fit the skinny jean category. I bought 2 pair of these that are lined this past winter. I had to come back for the unlined version for the summer. As some have mention the pockets are a bit shallow. The waist is so comfortable though it is like wearing PJs. I would possibly add belt loops just in case they are needed. Thanks L.L. Bean for making a pair of pants that fit those of us that have a few extra pounds!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrescottHiker Petite Length Too Short - Customer Service Great
I ordered these pants in 4 petite length because I am 5'0" tall and that is my usual size. After one wash the pants were floods and I couldn't wear them. I spoke with customer service and they returned those and sent me a regular length. I washed the regular length and while they are a little long I love wearing them. They do feel baggier than the petites I had originally ordered. These are great pants but I don't know why the petite is so short and shrinks so much. Kudos to LL Bean Customer Service and making this right for me.
