Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodforhomeorcamp They're back; they're great!
Thank you for listening! This year's North Ridge Corduroy Pants have jettisoned the useless front patch pockets and upgraded to deep, inset pockets, an inset zippered pocket on the right front, plus phone or tool pockets on both thighs. They are the same wonderful corduroy, great fit and great for carrying as much as you need in your pockets! Please delete my negative review of 2/15!

Rated 1 out of 5 by customer6 fit and sizing issue
I ordered this pant in a 30x32. The pants that arrived were much larger in the waist and unlike the description did NOT sit below the natural waist. The crotch was 1/4 way to my knees. Fabric is great. Very soft. But the fit and size are almost laughable. An honest description and more modern fit would be a huge improvement. Very disappointed and I'm responsible for paying shipping to return these. Might be the last bit of menswear I purchase from LL Bean. On the bright side, my flannel sheets are great. Too bad that attention to detail doesn't extend to these cords.

by ukulelejim Comfortable pants, but...
These pants fit nicely and are very comfortable, but the Dark Cinder color is far from what is represented in the website photos. I would consider it more of a medium ash gray. (i.e. MUCH lighter shade of gray than shown. - See photo of these with a pair of darker gray pants.) The darts at the knees and the side pockets make pressing wrinkles out of them more of a challenge than any cords I have owned; so plan to take your time. (I press cords inside-out, and it is fairly difficult to lay them on the ironing board in such a way as to avoid imprinting the side pockets that are under the side being ironed.)

Yes the front pockets are a little shallow, but they look great and there is a zippered pocket for stuff you don't want to loose. Overall, it is not a problem.
The pants themselves are nicely (and somewhat stylishly) cut, and have a slimmer leg (but not skinny). There's a bit of lycra in there for some stretch. Great for hiking.
Fit is a little generous in the waist. I maybe should have gone down one size.

LLove these pants .I hav'nt owned a pair of corduroy pants for over 20 years as most styles tend to be street conservative.Yet these pants are styled like any pant you might wear on your next day hike. They tend to be slim in style and most importantly to me come in odd size waist. (I am 35-34) Trying to find odd size pants can drive me crazy because I'm no longer comfortable in 34 and 36 are way to large. I like to buy pants with side pockets on the leg to carry my smart phone and these pants provide ample pocket room to carry any large smart phone without having to struggle to get it out. Once you put these pants on in a cool/cold New England day and feel how soft and warm they are you may want to wear nothing but corduroys from then on. After I bought my first pair at the store while on vacation I could'nt wait to get home so I could order the second color on line. Good Job LL

These are the latest iteration of the gradually dwindling number of options for those seeking casual corduroys. They fit well- both before and after washing, and are very comfortable.
They have ample utility pockets, but oddly the two basic pockets are either peculiarly shallow or the slit is peculiarly low, as change, keys, etc feel vulnerable to falling out when you sit. Perhaps, it's just a matter of getting accustomed to the cut of the pockets, as I've been wearing the pants on and off for several weeks without losing anything.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Torontobeanfan My First Return
I have been an avid fan of Bean clothes for years and I hate to say that this is the first item that I have to return to Bean. While the corduroy pants look good and are comfortable, the stud to fasten the pants broke on me while wearing them. While I like the zipped side pocket, I also find the front pockets to be too shallow for my liking. As soon as the weather improves between Toronto and Rochester, which is my nearest store, I will be returning them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Goodforhomeorcamp Extremely comfortable but...
I purchased these because they resembled a pair I bought a couple of years ago that was just great. These are incredibly comfortable, not the easiest thing with a rugged cord. The pockets, however, on this generation are primarily patch pockets. They don't hold their contents when I sit in a car seat or a living room chair. The thigh pocket is great for my cell phone, and a zipper pocket, also on the right side, can hold a wallet, and should be used for any change you don't want to lose. I find patch pockets in front to be useless for wearing out in the world. I'll work around them, because they are so comfortable, but they are no substitute for my #259647 cords, as I hoped they would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarrieT SO SOFT!
I happened to see these pants at an LL Bean store and touched them as I walked by. I immediately turned around and looked for my size! They are so soft!! Not only are they soft, but they are functional and comfortable! The pockets on the side are great for cell phones and a utility knife. They have articulated knees which make it easy to walk, bend etc. Also, they have more of a slim fit as opposed to the baggy cargo style, which I like! These are going to be a winner this fall and winter while I'm walking the dogs or lounging around the house. I ended up purchasing both colors and both are great!
