Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeananne Wonderful Weight for Jean Shorts!
I love these jean shorts! They are great for most temperatures, especially Texas humidity! Loose enough to provide for movement when doing strenuous hiking or walking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaNancy44 Comfort and fit
I actually ordered 2 pair of these shorts. The other pair was in the darker denim color. Fit and comfort were excellent. I usually wear size 8, but from experience I know that most items from Bean run a little big, so I order a size 6. I love these shorts.

These shorts were better than I expected. Most comfortable and easy wash & wear. Love the fit of LLBean clothes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by llbfan6 Nice cloth; Waist too big if you need curvy fit
I bought the lightweight shorts because I liked the lightweight capris. The shorts material is very lightweight and comfortable (just like the capris material). Unfortunately, I found the shorts waist to be way too big compared to the hips. (Although I usually do need a curvy fit, I did not find the big waist problem with the capris.) Perhaps the shorts and capris are made by different manufacturers?

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckrg I love these shorts!
I have been ordering and wearing these shorts for several years. I have all colors and love their relaxed fit. I do a lot of gardening and these are both comfortable for bending and cover the leg enough while bending over etc.
I have several pairs at our winter home in AZ and several pairs I wear in WA state during the summer.
Great casual & relaxed fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great shorts
These are my new favorite work shorts for summer. Ultra comfortable, not too heavy and not too tight. Bought one then another they were so comfy.
Would like to see a heavier version please for fall or early spring.

The shorts fit well and are at a modest length. I also like the fact they are lightweight making them perfect for hot summer days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Scrabblebrook Light Weight Denim Shorts
I purchased a pair of Light Weight Denim Shorts in 2013 (item ID 270120) and they fit very well. I ordered a pair of Light Weight Denim Shorts that were available now and appeared to be similar to the ones I have ( we were told that the ones that were purchased previously were no longer available). These were returned to you as they do not fit the way the old ones do. Both were the same size; but the new ones didn't come within an inch of buttoning and the legs were tighter. In short...they just didn't appear to be a size 14. I don't think LL Bean caters to the older folks anymore the fit of your clothes appear to be for younger folks. I guess I will be buying my clothes somewhere else. If you would like to hear a comment about your Pima Cotton Tees I would be glad to comment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JerseygirlinOhio Great fabric but. . . .
I loved the lightweight denim. These would have been perfect for summer, except the fit did not work.
For me, the rise was too short. I think this is a function of the lower waist height. Had the waist actually come to the waist, the rise would have been sufficient.
Had I gone to the next size, the waist would have been way to big.
Despite the fact that they were well made and of a perfect fabric, I had to send them back.
Please make more shorts and slacks with a regular height waist, without elastic. There are plenty of us who hate the low rise look and want well fitting pants, shorts, and capris that come to the waist and don't have elastic in the waist. That makes the back ride down and they look dorky besides.
