Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter So comfortable for all day in school!
My almost 11 year old loves these pants! First of all when they say "narrow-Leg" they mean it. I was afraid they might not pass in her school as they have a no "jegging" policy (jeans that fit like leggings-skin tight) but these are okay. My daughter is sporty (and has the legs to prove it...AKA sizable thighs) so it might be her issue, not everyones issue, but from our stand point even a size 14 is snug. Having said that, she says they are comfortable. She just wears them with a longer sweater. The length is generous for the taller gals. they are pull ups, not zipper although they look like they have one.
One final note, the "midnight" color can easily be confused with gray. Maybe it's a hazy midnight, I don't know but it looks gray to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BCfamily Great pants....love the length!
My daughter is a very tall 9.5 yr old and so finding jeans long enough in the leg, that aren't way too big in the waist (as we have to size up quite a bit to get the length), can be difficult. She put these on this morning and loved them. Had to wear a belt, as she said they were a bit too big in the waist (size 12), but the length was great! The waist didn't look too bad, could just be she wanted to wear the belt as she's been wearing it the last few days....if need be, I will do a little tuck on the side.
She wants me to order more in the other colours because she said they were really comfy. It's nice to find a slim pant (she's all about skinny jeans at the moment) that isn't too low in the rise and fits my daughter. Thanks LLBean for making a slightly longer length with these....in the past we've often found that your pants can be a bit short for my daughter's long legs.

Last year I purchased the boot cut version of these pants for my daughter and she loved them. This year I also order the narrow leg version in addition to the boot cut version in a size10 which is one size larger than last year. I was very surprised that there was about a 4 inch difference in length between the Narrow-leg jean and the boot cut version. Size 10 inseam for boot cut is roughly 24.5 inches and in the narrow leg it is roughly 28.5 inches. The waist appears to fit the same on both pants but I will certainly need to hem (or return) the narrow leg version which is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter My 10 year old loves these!!!
She says they are comfy and she loves that they have a fake zipper. She says they are light, not heavy and the colors are awesome. (Yes, she is right here dictating to me).

Rated 3 out of 5 by bowzersof1 I had high hopes, but sadly did not work for us.
First, I would like to say that my gals LOVE the bootcut style and are hoping for some NEW colors for the fall in addition to navy, black and brown. So they wanted to try this new straight leg style for a change. The colors are FABULOUS!!!! I can't rave enough about how happy we were to leave the dark drabs behind!!! BUT the fit is very different from the bootcut pants they have been wearing for years (that were THANKFULLY brought back). The gals like the alternative straight leg style, but the material is a different weight (heavier) than the bootcut style which would make them on the warmer side. Also as mentioned by a previous reviewer, the length is really, really long. (I did not opt to have them hemmed.) So if you have really tall children, they will work for them unless you chose to have them hemmed. If you want really great colors, these are wonderful! If you want a bit heavier weight, these are great too. LL Bean: Please consider re-designing these pants as I would hate to lose the fabulous color options.

I have ordered many different styles of girls pants for my daughter over the years and I can't believe how much longer the legs are on these than any other ones. We are talking 6-8 inches longer than the last pair of boot cut stretch pants we bought. And those were longer than we needed ! I kept them anyway and will have to pay to have them shortened, but will not buy this style again. The only reason I ventured a try was because the boot leg style comes only in black, dk. brown and navy and I was looking for brighter spring colors.

These are so comfortable it's hard to wear anything else; but here are a few little caveats: 1)The waist runs big, and the pants stretch a little, so I would order one size smaller than usual. 2) The colors might be better in a "heather," or a subtle pattern; I bought the denim color and it shows dirt rather easily, so be prepared for the pants to be worn and washed frequently--but loved!

I ordered two pairs of these jeans; orchid and midnight colors. They are a little too big for my daughter but she is on the slim side and I think the sizing is true to Bean's sizing chart; I will alter the pant to fit until she grows into them. The orchid color is nice and bright, but the midnight color is not what I expected. It is a weathered navy bordering on gray, and don't match any other blue clothing in my daughter's wardrobe, so I will be returning them.
