Rated 2 out of 5 by mermlb Bring back the old comfort waist crops!!
I have tried to like these hidden comfort waist crops...I also have two pairs of the shorts. I am a classic pear shape and they just don't fit!! The pockets and crotch pull funny. I don't understand why the design had to be changed. Why not a choice between hidden comfort waist and regular comfort waist?
I have two pairs of the regular comfort waist pants. I purchased the same size in the crops but they don't fit and the difference is the hidden comfort waist. The pants BTW fit fine, no pocket/crotch pulling. If LLB can make the regular comfort waist in the pants then why can't the crops (AND shorts too!) be made????
These crops are going back!! Very frustrating. LLB used to be my go to spot for shorts, crops and pants that fit my curvy body. No longer! How sad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JC1469 Well Made, Excellent Quality
I work at an animal shelter and needed pants for milder weather that look professional but can stand up to active wear.
The fabric is a bit heavier than expected but still fine and much lighter than jeans that are too hot for summer. I love the very deep pockets because I usually need to carry a lot of stuff with me on dog walks and these pockets are super handy.
My only mild objection is the waistband. I ordered a size 4 Petite and the waist is a good fit but the waistband feels stiff and slightly uncomfortable. Everything may soften up a bit after the first washing.
All in all this was an excellent purchase. More expensive than than the Big Box store pants I usually buy for dog walking but well worth it for the professional look and nice fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cinephileglobetrotte well made but not my style
I have a hard time rating these pants. They are very well made. I loved the fabric. I just didn't like the style of the waist. I felt like I was wearing maternity pants and I am definitely past that stage in my life. If I had a nice flat stomach I might have liked them. they would have been comfortable. But I don't and as a result the pockets kind of stuck out. I would rather have a bit of give in just the waistband.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rivercat smart, neat appearance
I needed a plain , stylish pair of capris in black and these fit the appearance. I am 5' 3" and weigh 135 lbs and ordered a L petite. They are a little long and still a bit too snug in the waist even though they really fit below my waist. The hidden comfort waist works well for me so I am keeping them . Washed in cold water and dried just a few minutes , then hung up to finish drying and they did not need ironing! They are made of very sturdy material but a bit of spandex would help the comfort level.

Rated 2 out of 5 by capecodbeach Not the same fit or quality!!!
I must have ordered more than 15 pairs of bayside twills over the past 10 years, But the last few years I notice the quality has not be the same. The most recent order of crops are too tight and when washed they fad after only several washes in cold water on gentle cycle. Bring back the LLBean quality from years ago. I am sending the last several pairs back. These are the same size I always wear, BUT not the same quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by beaniebaby Tight in the waist
First let me say that I have worn the Bayside twill favorite fit, plain front pants and crops for years. Now that the crops are no longer available, I tried these in the same size 10 regular as my old crops. The new ones were not comfortable in the waist and didn't easily add extra ease. I will be returning them and am debating about trying the next size up for the waist but wonder about the fit elsewhere. If I try the next size, I'll post the results. In the meantime, L.L. Bean, please bring back the favorite fit, plain front crops and don't discontinue the pants, please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barb430 Ordered size which was too big for me
Had removed tags and bags and spoke to Customer Service and I didn't receive any hassle. Customer Service is EXCELLENT. They were willing to take back and send out correct size to me. Am very pleased.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jayhawk012345 Classic Fit?
I was very disappointed that they did not fit like the regular Classic Fit long pants. I ordered the same size I usually do, but these were too tight overall.

They fit well. Laundry is wonderful, they come out of the dryer ready to wear. I will order in other colors.
