Rated 4 out of 5áby Bigchimney Very nice weight, material, and colors
I bought these shorts in stone and British khaki. I really like the weight, feel, and colors of the material. They are light enough to be cool, but seem tough enough to use for working outdoors. I would have preferred a little more taper to the legs, but other than that they are great!

Rated 2 out of 5áby SevenX Too Baggy
The garment is well made, but way too much material was used for the legs and hips. These shorts blouse out from the waist like a skirt in all directions. This is not apparent from the image shown online. But I bought 3 pair and they are all shaped like that. Relaxed fit is one thing. But it is impossible to imagine anyone needing that much extra room in the places where these shorts have so much extra fabric. I've been wearing shorts for more decades than I care to count and I've never seen anything like this.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BRPete Light-weight, Cool and Comfortable
This is my absolute favorite summer shorts. The Tropic Weight fabric is great. They are a much lighter weight than your typical chino short, and in my opinion, cooler and more comfortable. I ordered a pair at least nine or ten years ago and I'm still wearing them. Bean then switched to carrying the Tropic Weight fabric only in a cargo style short. This is the first time I've seen them in a chino style in several years so I ordered immediately upon seeing them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby atexasborndane Great fabric and color
A good fit and fabric - and wonderful British Khaki color. Although instructed to wash before wearing, the color seems fast. Just wish it came in a comfort waist, as does the long model, since I'm right in between 36 and 38

LLB needs to make the same tropic weight shorts they used to make with pleated fronts and 6" inseam. I am glad you started making tropic with shorts without cargo pockets but you missed the boat on the new ones. Once you start making these again like you used to I will buy them again.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Navyblue Too long
I was happy that LL Bean brought these shorts back. However, my old ones were 6" inseam. I missed that these weren't 8", but 9" as stated in the description. For me that's too long..to my knee or even slightly below and I'm normally height weight proportioned.
Returning them disappointed. This year's selection of Bean shorts isn't what I'd hoped. Fortunately the old ones hold up long enough to get me through until the buyers fix the issue!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Cuthbert Comfortable and Light Weight
Got these for my husband and he loves them! They are light weight and will be great for our 90+ degree summer days. They require a little touch-up ironing after washing, but that is not a problem to me.

You finally brought back the Tropic Weight Plain Front shorts. These are the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. And bringing back the Plain Front is great for those of us that don't like cargo shorts. Thanks for listening.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JerseyBounceShopper Short Review
I had a pair of shorts like these in the past and they lasted over 10 years. They were the red washed-out shorts and they were just great. They were very well made and really took a beating but continued to look nice every time I put them on. I am so glad that I was able to replace them as I will wear them to match my new madras shirt.
