Rated 3 out of 5 by HashtagAwesome Too big
I've bought a few other things from L.L. Bean and they've all been great, and true to size. Unfortunately this just didn't do it for me. it ran a size too big. I'm sorry to say I had to return this and the matching top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SarahfromBoston Great under layer for work clothes, but runs big
I bought these so that I would have a good under layer for my work slacks during our cold Boston winters. They absolutely do the trick. However, as previous reviewers wrote, they do run large. I am a size 14 and got the large, as the size chart says. The resulting fit is loose, not snug against my skin. It doesn't bother me enough to return them, but if and when I order another pair, I will size down.

These lightweight pants are cozy-fit and warm under my corduroy (or other) pants. Great winter-wear, indoor and outdoor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by twosmom Great lightweight pants
These pants are are exactly what LL Bean is telling you. They wick the moisture away from your body when you exercise, or work outside. The fit is great and the waistband does not bind!

Rated 2 out of 5 by KathyinNJ I'm Sorry I Don't Like These Tights
I ordered these tights to replace a pair of battered, ripped silk ones I used for skiing and cold winter weather. Sadly, when I wore these LLBean tights for the first time while hiking in Glacier I was sorely disappointed. They chaffed my skin above my knees so badly that it took almost a week for the roughness to disappear. The fabric is rough to the feel, not smooth like silk, which I didn't think would matter, but apparently it does. I took the tights off when I got hot, so I don't think it was heat that caused the chaffing. Besides which, I often get hot while cross-country skiing and wouldn't be able to take them off in that situation. I guess I can still return them, since I'm dealing with LLBean :-), but I hate to have to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by internetshopper454 Great to use as pj pants
They fit well, are very comfortable, wash and dry well with no shrinkage. Plenty of length to them as well. I like them as pajama pants and that's why I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by delretiree Good fit
Some reviewers complain that these are too short. I am 5'9", 150 lbs and they are long enough for me and felt good next to my skin. I washed them (cold), hung to dry, and they didn't shrink. I bought them for a hiking trip in Maine later this year so haven't field tested them yet. It's still summer where I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Huierre Warm and lightweight
These are exactly what I was looking for: a warm, breathable, comfortable lightweight layer that would hold up better and not shred like the silks. I have heavier long johns for real cold, but fall and spring need a lighter layer in the Northwest. I read the other reviews and ordered a small, instead of a medium. That was good advice that I will now pass on to you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Southern13 Next season
Just gearing up for next winter season. Spring has sprung here in the South so I just tried them on to make sure they fit. I'll be saving them till fall/winter season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuseB more than i had expected
I remember as a child wearing "long johns" that became wet, smelly, heavy during snow activities. And that, more or less, was what i expected. HOWEVER, the LL Bean stretch layer lightweight pants I recently purchased are completely the opposite -- they DIDN'T get wet, nor heavy nor smell after wearing them -- in the snow-- under my jeans. They were dry and light. They kept me dry and warm. I wish I had purchased two pair!
