Rated 5 out of 5 by MikefromBeaver Best. Pants. Ever
These are far and away my favorite pants. They fit like a glove, look great and are super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmmettFitzHume NEVER CHANGE THESE PANTS!
I have now purchased 5 different pairs of Riverton pants (3 in the lighter color, 1 in the dark color and 1 in the Khaki-like color).
I rave about these pants to everyone. And my greatest hope is that the LL Bean Powers-That-Be never change a single design aspect of these pants. New color choices will be welcome but that's it. Nothing else. Nada. Don't change them!!
Why? Well, I'm glad you asked!
1) The pockets: Perfect placement. There is a right-hand pocket down low that is perfect for my folding knife with a clip. There is another zippered pocket on the left-hand side that is perfectly positioned for my phone.
2)The reinforced area on the back hemline. This is where every other pants I have begin to wear out first, rubbing against the back of my shoes/boots.
3)The fit style is just right. Just right. Not too baggy, not metro-something-something tight. Just right.
In conclusion, in case you couldn't tell, I really love these pants. I hope they become an LL Bean standby classic like the Warm-up jacket and the Bookpack (though, to be honest, I'm not sure I like the most recent changes to that last item...)

Rated 5 out of 5 by RWP344 Excellent outdoors, indoors, around town
Pants feel excellent, are rugged, and look good with a blazer for casual night out...whatever, they are ready to go. Size is as described (though wish they made a 29" length), and there is plenty of room in the legs without being baggy. They dry quickly, whether that is air drying after a wash or if caught in the rain. In the heat, they are not as hot or sticky as 100% cotton. The cotton/nylon blend has a smooth though rugged feel to them and the gusseted crotch makes climbing and sitting easy. The rivets are smooth and do not hurt the hand and the waist button is metal and riveted, as in never coming off. Buy them...you'll wear them all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 63TR4 Great hiking/casual pants
The fit was exactly right according to the size I ordered. I like the cotton and nylon mix, light weight but strong. The many pockets easy to access. The rear pockets have velcro closures. Overall, very comfortable pants to wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wnydad Well done
I'm normally a person who needs 100% cotton.
But needed some outdoor pants that were quick drying.
These fit the bill.
Fabric is great. Fit is good.
Gusseted crotch helpful when moving up and down the trails.

These pants have exceeded my expectations. Great fit, comfortable, quick shipping. If the other color was available, I would buy them too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TalkeetnaMtman Too Tight for hiking use
I had high hopes, by my normal waste size was way tight in thighs. I reordered three waist size up in hopes of enough room in the leg, but still too tight for climbing, would be alright for town use only....too bad.
