Rated 1 out of 5 by TetleyTeaBag Don't hold up to wear - very disappointing
I bought these in size 5/6 for my daughter. At first we loved them - vibrant colors and she liked the fleece bib; she has been warm, spending hours outside at a time. However, now we're both very disappointed. As other reviewers have stated, they are no longer waterproof - a HUGE problem as we move into slush season. She has to change her clothes every day after recess at school because she's soaked to the skin. The fabric on the seat and knees has pilled and the knees have almost worn through, showing the white insulating fabric.
I bought this expecting, based on past LL Bean experience, that I'd get 2 years wear for my daughter (right across the size range) and that they might even be handed down to my younger child. I'm very disappointed that I need to shop for replacements now, even before one season is over.

These pants are very comfortable and warm when it's dry, but the water has never beaded up on them. My daughter wears them for downhill skiing and doesn't get very wet as we have pretty cold weather in Northern Michigan, but this year she is wearing them for school and they come home pretty soaked.
Sorry, LLB, we love most everything we have from you, but I just can't recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Farmlifeforme Best snow pants ever!
I have purchased three pairs of this style of snow pants. I love the vest style top, which gives extra protection from snow going down the back. My grand daughter actually requested this type when she grew out of her last pair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MinnesotaMomOfThree Great snowpants!
These snowpants are fantastic! We've had them for the past 3 winters, and my girls love the fleece bib part instead of straps and plastic tightening buckles, as it is so soft and warm. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that for this particular coral color, I think I would have been much happier if the coral wasn't so 'bright'. A more subtle/darker coral or back to pink would have been much appreciated. The picture doesn't appear as bright as it is - it's more like a "shocking coral". Otherwise, we will continue to purchase this style!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hangingoutdoorsinMN Super Toasty Bibs
The fleece body on these bibs is amazing! The fleece is very thick and will really add warmth during our cold Minnesota winters. The bibs run very long and are generously sized. We bought a size 10 and they are a very generous size 10! Love them!

Adorable snow pants. They run quite long. I bought the 5/6 for my petite 6 1/2 year old and they are a good 6" too long. I'm keeping since they match the jacket, but I'll probably need to cuff them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by WaldorfMama Not waterproof
These snowpants fit great (perhaps a touch large which is okay). I loved the fleece upper half as my did my daughter. However, these are not waterproof and after a day of playing in the snow, we would need to dry these pants out as they would be soaking through and through. Not great in a wet Southern Ontario winter. If these were waterproof, I would give them a 5 but as such, just a 2. If you're somewhere where you don't need waterproof winter gear, then these would be great.
