Rated 3 out of 5 by malort Bought to wear to park district work
The material of these pants are very sturdy and comfortable. However, the fit was off. As I have never ordered pants from LLBean I was not aware of the sizing. I am 5'7", 180 lbs and usually wear a size 14R. When I got these, they were slightly too small and too short. I would recommend ordering a size up from normal.
I sent in for an exchange but received a refund check. Disappointed that it didn't work out.

I bought these pants (actually 2 pairs in Khaki) for a 3 week trip to Costa Rica in June. I needed long pants that were something other than a jeans material. These fit the bill. They were light weight enough that I wasn't sweating on warmer days (I was up at 3000 feet, not the beach), but not so light weight that I was cold on rainy, chillier days. As there were no cloths dryers, these pants were line dried each time. They dry quickly when wet and remain relatively unwrinkled which was great as I had to wear each pair a few days in a row each time before washing. The only thing I didn't completely love is that they feel a little tight in the waist area. I am between a size 10 and 12 and the size 12 was slightly fitted. I like my pants a little roomier, but don't think going up a size would have worked at all for overall fit. I had also ordered a cocoa colored pair, but I returned them because they were neither gray nor cocoa but kind of in between the two. I didn't care for the color at all. Making these in a true gray or a truer brown would be fabulous and I would consider buying another pair if the color palette was expanded.

These Southport Cargo Pants are the summer version of LLBean's flannel-lined cargo pants.
For sizing, I am 5'5" and weigh 130 lbs. The Size 10 fits very comfortably on the four summer cargo pants that I have ordered, as well as the flannel-lined winter ones. I also ordered them in the summer shorts version, and they fit great -- all in size 10.
I do sew the button on the waist band a tad over (but not much) to loosen the waist band on the summer cargo pants, but I would not have to do so. It is merely my personal preference.

Thank you, LLBean. Unlike the excessive bagging of the Ripstop Cargo Pants after just an hour or so, these cargo pants seem to hold up well over a couple of days' wear. That bagginess, I have always assumed, was due to the amount of spandex used.
I'm not sure how the difference has been accomplished on your part (this particular fabric, perhaps?) These pants are 2% spandex, and all of my Ripstop pants are 1% spandex - there may be a reasonable explanation there, but I can't quite figure it out.

I wasn't sure about ordering these after reading some of the reviews. I did order a pair but made sure I ordered the size I've been wearing for years - did not go down a size like with other LL Beans pants I've ordered. They fit PERFECT. Definitely no complaints here..

Just received my first pair of cargo slacks, and I love them already! The fit is perfect. I'm 5'10", 165 pounds, and the 12 tall is exactly right. Ordering the other colors right now.

I straddle a 12 and a 14...I'm 5'10" 165 pounds..after reading reviews, I bought a 14. So glad I did. Very comfortable and they do loosen up a bit after you've worn them. Bought the tall and the length is perfect. Really like these pants because they are casual but I can wear them to work. Liked them so much that I bought a second pair; one in green, one in khaki. Don't care about the size of the pockets because I never put cell in pocket...

I had to buy these one size bigger than my usual size...never good for self esteem! Even the bigger size is a bit tight at the waist.

This is definitely sized smaller than LLBean's other pants.
Furthermore, when put through the wash--turned inside out, even!--it lost at least 2 buttons. This also happened with the last pair of khaki pants that I purchased from LLBean (a different style button).
These pants are getting sent back and exchanged for something different.

Rated 4 out of 5 by agatha2 GREAT CAPRI...but
I like the pants except for the very tight waist (you guys with small waists will be happy) and slightly baggy hips. I'm keeping them anyway but they are not the slim neat look I was looking for. Every
body is different so impossible to please us all. I did move the button to give and extra 1/2 inch...not much but it helps. I'm 5'3"
and weigh 142 (today) and I bought a size 10. The pants are
well made and great fabric. I chose the cocoa color and expected more chocolate but it does have a tint of green,...just in case that helps anyone.
