Rated 5 out of 5 by NCpetDr Perfect for muggy weather.
I bought a pair of these pants for my father a few years ago and he wore them out in his garden. I bought two more pairs this year for Father's Day. The fit is still true to size, and the fabric is perfect for the >95 degree weather we have had in NC this June. My father is using these new Tropic-Weight Chinos as his go-to attire for casual wear rather than for gardening. They look great and he likes the discreet comfort waist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DecadesLLshopper Awful color, not like they used to be...
I have been buying these tropic cotton pants from LL Bean for many many years. Just bought one pair in British Khaki, and the fabric color is roughly a light yellow-greenish hue -- horrible!! And I compared it in good light to British Khaki and Khaki tropic pants that have been well to only slightly washed/worn, purchased 1+ years ago. I will be returning these, and calling customer service as soon as I finish this post in hopes the buyer for this product can make things right next season. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NotHappyNow Pleated without elastic waist - Get it?
You offered similar lightweight chinos several years ago with a non elastic waist band. Please bring them back so I can purchase several pair and be happy for several more years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 28yearswithBean Bring back the original in pleated
I loved these pants and am happy to see they are back in flat front but these pleated ones have a really ugly elastic waste. I sent mine back and hope you will once again make pleated ones with a regular waste. I have two old pairs left that I take good care of because they still look good in my office before the weather turns cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drumbeaterman Please!!!!!!!!! make them in GRAY!!!!!! again!!!!!
After wearing these for 25 years or more, I can attest to their comfort level and durability. I refuse to believe that the person in charge of purchasing these for LL Bean cannot get them in GRAY anymore. That color , just behind Khaki, was the best seller and in the history of these pants in the CHINO , not the CARGO. Please , someone tell this employee to try and bring the GRAY back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by cpcguy Wash and IRON
Tropic Weight label says do not dry clean. Customer service says yes, it might harm the fabric. I've washed and then hung while damp but they really need IRONING, not just touch up. should be noted in the sales info. I wouldn't recommend them for $50 (or any price).

Rated 2 out of 5 by DrXYZ MESSED UP A GREAT PANT
HAVE WORN THESE PANTS FOR YEARS. NO BETTER MATERIAL OR STYLE AVAILABLE FOR PLEATED PANTS THAT DON'T FEEL LIKE CARDBOARD. WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER PAIR UNTIL THE ELASTIC IS GONE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Builder68 Color choice
Bought these trousers some time ago and want to re-order. Unfortunately, the colors I selected are no longer offered: gray and sage green. Any plans to expand your color choices?

LL Bean keep their word. I bought the Tropic-Weight Chino Pants, Comfort Waist, Pleated Khaki colored about 8 months ago. My right seam in muy leg started coming undone 1 inch long. I shipped the pants for free to LL Bean and they fixed them for free. LL can be trused.
The pants are better than new.
