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?

PLEASE bring back tropic weight chinos WITHOUT the Mommy waist! Not a look most men want to wear!

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by phenixva not for me
The fabric seemed nice until I saw that the whole waistband in back was elastic. Not quite ready to wear elastic waisted pants so they are being returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NellsMom Cool, comfortable, and not restrictive
My husband LOVES these pants. He works in an office where the day-to-day outfit is khakis and a polo shirt. He said that these have been fantastic in the hotter weather. I'm back to get another pair. They may not be cheap, but they keep him comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodfloridianshopper My husband loves these pants
Thank L.L.Bean for the free shipping.
My husband feels so relaxed and comfortable with the comfort waist of these pants. The elastic in the back waist is not bulky and let him to work sat for long hours. The fabric is perfect for the weather in Florida and does not fade easily wash after wash. Three years ago I ordered two pants like these ones in green which are still in good shape. I wash them in cold water almost every 15 days (he wears them a lot) then iron them to maintain them in good shape. I know that they are getting old but my husband loves them because of the features and the color, green. He is a little disappointed because this season L.L.Bean has not made them in color green or whatever specific color green they made before. Please L.L.bean, make them in color green too. We are ordering two more pants next week .

Rated 1 out of 5 by CAShopper20 Terrible waist band!
I have several pairs of this classic khaki, but now the style of the waist band has been changed to a pleated 'big butt' look. I very much dislike this change and I'm sending my new order back.

Love the light weight pants. BUT the waist STINKS!!!!!!! This is THE MOST uncomfortable pair of pants I have ever worn. If it had a regular waist these would be awsome. Cancelled the order on a second pair never again with this waist.
