Rated 4 out of 5 by Canbro28 Mostly about the fit
I have only owned these for a few weeks, so I can't comment on the long-term reliability or performance of these pants, but I can lend some insight into their fit and my initial impressions. I am 51 years old, 6' tall and 160 lbs with a fairly slim build. I normally wear a 30" or 31" waist, depending on the cut or brand of pants. Usually, a 34" inseam is good for jeans and similar casual pants. In some dress pants, a 32" inseam may be good. In these pants, I ordered 30" waist x 34" inseam in the "standard fit". These do fit me, but they are quite snug. They are not uncomfortable, in that the fabric is fairly soft, with a broken-in feel that stretches enough as I wear them. I did wash them before my first wearing, but was careful to use a delicate cycle and dry on low heat. If these shrink any with additional washings, I am afraid they will become too tight to wear. The waist is okay at 30" and the inseam is long enough, but just. Seems a little short for a 34". The snug fit is mainly in the fit thru the hips, seat and upper legs. This is probably a good cut for the younger crowd, but for my age, it borders on being too slim. I'll will probably try out the Natural Fit on my next pair. As far as the fabric goes, I like the soft broken-in feel, yet the material doesn't feel thin or weak. I expect it to be quite durable. The only negative comment I have about the material is that it is very prone to wrinkling. I pulled mine out of the dryer right after the cycle finished and they still suffered from significant wrinkles. Be prepared to iron or go with the wrinkled look. All in all, I like the pants but will likely not order the "Standard Fit" again. Just not quite the right fit for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerry4 More color options....Dark Khaki
The fit and material of these pants are second to none. The "shell khaki" is true to the website pictures. Just wish a dark khaki color was offered. The "walnut" has a tint of green in it and the "canyon khaki" is closer to a mustard color. Overall a fantastic pair of stylish casual pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TallBob Not Usual LLBean Fit
I've ordered jeans and pants from LLBean previously, and have become accustomed to 40 x 32 being a perfect fit.
These were too snall, and I returned therm. The wsaist was too tight by at least an inch and the inseam was at least half an inch too short.
Disappointed -- maybe a different supplier?
I will try again -- maybe a try-on at the LLBean store about 15 miles away instead of on-line this time.

I love this pants! Fits very well and doesn't shrink. The 'Canyon Khaki' is true to its color. A very well regarded and versatile pair of pants that fits my office work needs but still looks casual and 'rugged' for my family get-togethers! The description reads 'rugged cotton canvas is soft yet durable' and I couldn't agree more! You have the best of both worlds... the durability of a Katahdin quality with the dressy mode all in one. The slanted front pockets does give it the 'McGyver' look!!
