Rated 5 out of 5 by Sis29 These are terrific pants!
I haven't been able to wear LL Bean pants for several years because they kept sizing up and everything was too big - but these are just about perfect. Just right in length and rise. The fabric is soft and comfortable with just enough stretch. Washed up beautifully, dried on low and came out almost wrinkle-free with minimal if any shrinkage. Love the faded olive color. I'm 5'4, 118 lbs and purchased a size 4. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerseybeanie Finally found great LLB pants
I've had problems finding pants I like at LLB because most are either too baggy or dowdy looking. These are not quite favorite fit but the waist is not all that high either. Once you find your correct size (I'm 5 foot 125 lbs and wear the 10P, the 8P was way too tight), these will be quite comfortable and dressy casual pants. Much better fit on my apple shape than the Bayside twills. Not too baggy in the seat or too wide in the legs. May purchase the cropped/ankle ones in the spring. Bought the dark sable because the light almond looked too light and thought the sable would fade over time. Black and gray would be nice color additions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pika Well now, aren't these nice...?
So, I admit, I am a bayside twill person and have been for ages. But when those were hard to come by in the favorite fit, I landed on these washed chinos as an alternative.
What I really, really like about these, is the narrower leg, they truly are a straight leg, not a trouser leg as has been many have discovered and complained about with regard to the bayside twills. What I don't like so much about these though, is that these do come up higher on the waist--the favorite fit is definitely different in this style.
If LLB would match up the waist/rise of the bayside with the straight leg of these, I'd be in hog heaven.
So, a 4 for me because of the waist thing. If you like a higher waist, do give these a try. Good quality construction, comes out of the dryer in good shape if you don't let them linger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by notgoingthere Perfect pants
These are the best fitting pants that I have gotten in the last 10 years. The rise one me is a little higher, more natural waist, but the fit is great.I generally purchase size 10 or 12 pants. The higher the rise tends to require a 12. I did order the 12 and the hips an leg area are perfect. It is the perfect weight for all four seasons in North Carolina, think I will order at least one more pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HKNCA Beautiful pants - Waist tight
I love everything about these pants except that, like another reviewer said, I need about 1 more inch in the waist. They fit perfectly everywhere else, the fabric is very soft, and they are very nice quality. I'm debating if I need to send them back or if I can live with the waist being a tad tighter than is really comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KyOutdoors Inconsistent Sizing
I ordered two pair in size 12 Tall. The light almond pair was too large and the cedar pair fit well. However, both pair were longer in rise than favorite fit usually runs. Could be because I ordered tall? I do love the feel of these pants though. I'm keeping the green and returning the almond.

These pants also work well for Senior Women who over the years have lost their waist. These are the only LLBean pants I can wear that don't have some kind of adjustable waist. I like the fabric, style, and most of all the FIT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TemporaryMountaineer Love These Pants!
I have 2 pairs of these pants and I am glad to see that they are available in fall colors. They are very comfortable, they fit well (not too loose or too snug) and they are so nice looking. I will be getting several more pairs this season. These pants are perfect.

For summer I bought three cropped pants and one long. Just ordered a darker shade for fall. Love the fabric, the stretch, and the weight? Good pant for a slim shape in waist, hip, and leg.
