Rated 3 out of 5 by SouthernOregonSenior Inconsistent sizing
I bought these pants in the French Blue and am very pleased with them in an XL size. Today another pair arrived in Khaki and I will have to send them back because the waist is so small I can't get them on.

Yes, these ran large but I sent them back and bought a smaller size and wear them constantly. These pants ALWAYS sell out faster than any others - so would love to see these in colors women would wear MORE such as navy, browns, black and grey!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by anotheroldcustomer great pants but...
The pants are great, but the fit is not like the last 2-3 pairs that I've had. My others are 2-3 years old, fit well, These are HUGE. Really, too big even for pajama pants and too big to wear outside the house - too bad because I love the French Blue color. If I lay the two pairs of XL pants together, flat on the bed, the new ones are over 2" wider (a total of over 4"!) than the older style. On sale, so the next size down is gone in all colors. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by JazzLovesLLBean Note to self....
...Always read reviews before ordering!!! I happened on these because of an email and got excited thinking how perfect these would be for an upcoming vacation. I usually get petite large and have no problem...but these were way too big on me! I looked so sloppy and frumpy in them whether my shirt was tucked in or out. Sigh...
Didn't have time to get a smaller size...will have to try after I get home because I loved the pockets and the roll up and the comfort of these pants. I do agree with the others who say the blue is too much like a scrub blue...but both my daughters are nurses so I will just let whoever fits them have them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Litt Baggy but nice
These lightweight pants are soft and comfortable, but indeed are baggy. Still, it is a nice-looking bagginess, if you don't mind that sort of thing. Drape nice, and make movement easy. The regular length is quite long. I'm 5' 7", and these are certainly long enough, if not too long. I weigh 149 lbs, and usually take a size 12-14 in pants. I bought the medium, and it was overall somewhat too large, especially in leg width and waist, and it stretched out during the day. The small looked great, but felt a bit tight in spots. I washed the medium in cold water, but it did not shrink, so I washed again in hot and dried in hot, and it still did not shrink! Still, the pants feel great on a hot summer day, the olive is a gorgeous color, and I am happy.

I like these pants because they are roomy in the hips and thighs. I sized down one size to L because the elastic in the waist is very stretchy and it puckered in the larger size. I recommend you wash the pants before you hem them. After the wash, I didn't need to hem. Lightweight for summer and I like the blue!

Well, I bought these in XL thinking they would be roomy for gardening, etc. WAY too big. So I sent back and got the L. Still kinda big but didn't want the expense of sending them back. I hate paying to try on pants! The blue was way too bright and sorry to say but they look like medical office blue. No offense to the medical profession, but I am not in a clinic so I don't want to look like I am! Still haven't worn them after having them in closet for 2 weeks. Still trying to decide if I should send them back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RetiredLady63 Love these cargo's
I wear these all summer and have all colors except yellow. Be aware, the olive and bay leaf are the same color. Would like to see these offered in navy and black AND a true olive. I am a large woman and find my best fit is the XL petite..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Newatbridge comfortable live in pants
I love these pants. The smaller size I got this season fits well even after the first wash. I am disappointed that white is no longer available. I do not care for the bright blue or yellow colors. I wish they came in the olive color offered in the cargo pants. Because of the poor reviews I will not order the cargo pants. Several years ago I bought the chambray, which have always been too large for me; and over the years they have faded. Please make this style in the olive.

I usually wear a 10-12 size pants so ordered a medium and they are huge and the legs are so wide. The length is fine. I'm 5'41/2 and weigh 140 lbs. Even though they are 100% cotton I wonder if they will shrink enough when washed. Am undecided to say the least.
Also, LL Bean, please quit printing the washing instructions in every language known to man. It makes for too many bulky tags on the seam!
