Rated 5 out of 5 by CooneyGram I Can't Get Enough Of These Jeans!!!
I live in these pants (jeans!) and I live in fear that LLB will discontinue them. Accordingly, I ordered 5 pair yesterday when they were on the 2-A-Day Markdown. They are as comfortable as sweatpants but look and fit like high end jeans. What more can you ask! Some reviewers complained about the pockets. They do NOT stick out - in fact you have to really look to even tell they are there. The waistband does stretch during the day but I tend to have a bit larger waist and small hips. It works perfectly.

These are the most comfortable pants I own. I am a Bean XS and I ordered these in size 4 - they fit very well now, and I think they will still fit well if I happen to put on a few pounds. The fabric is thick enough so that they are warm enough to wear in our DC winters. The blackish color goes with everything, and I didn't have any experience of the color fading or running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CameronHP Finaaly a jean with it all
Finally a jean that has 2 cargo pockets , they are slim legged and they stretch . I am a very practical person and want my cell phone on me all the time so I am constant search for pants with cargo pockets. One can not generally find it in jean. But LL Bean did it and these jeans are not frumpy like few cargo Jeans I have found. I agree the pockets can be a bit longer, and they do run a bit big and I do hope they will make them in more colors . thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by Arlenick Have 2 pair already!
I am very happy with these comfort jeans. Just enough stretch to make them look good and fit comfortably all day. I am a senior with a "few" figure flaws, including a thick waist. With the forgiving waistline of these pants, I look pretty good. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HowdidIgetthisold Interesting "Jeans"
The weight of these jean-type pants makes them a little warmer for winter than others, plus the knit fabric makes them VERY comfortable. For those reason, I'll keep them. I found them to run a little loose, even though I ordered a 12, when I normally wear a 14. I'm 5'3" and agree with other reviewers that they run long. They look dumpy with athletic shoes. The fit is appropriate for someone who is pear shaped, so it's a little loose in my upper thighs. The cargo pockets are attached to the pant leg with metal snaps, which get very cold on a chilly day and are a little shocking when they touch my skin.
As I said, I'm keeping them and just wanted to register my thoughts on some of the finer details.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanieFromOhio Almost perfect
I originally purchased these in my regular size 10. They fit everywhere except for my waist. I am thicker in the waist area and was surprised that these were way too loose in that area. I never have a gap problem in pants, but I did in these, so I returned them and exchanged them for a size 8. The new pair arrived yesterday and I tried them on today. They still fit everywhere, but there is still a tiny gap in the waist. Not sure what's up with that, but I am keeping these and will wash them to see if there is any shrinkage in that area. They do feel very comfortable though and I'll have to see if they stretch out during the day or if they are going to require me to wear a belt before I decide if I will keep these or not. I'm hoping they will be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travelinlight17 My favorite pants this winter!
Extreme comfort, perfect straight, slim leg for me. The only improvement I would make in the design would be to make the cargo pockets a couple inches longer for my cell phone which was the main reason for purchasing. I love these so much that I bought another pair. I wish they had black as well as other colors. White and off-white would be awesome for spring and summer! Even capris would get my $$! I have had no issues with color running or with fabric stretching out. Thanks Bean - please keep 'em coming!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leftlady The color runs and runs
I wanted to like these pants. I love the slim legs, but don't like the pockets on the thighs.
Really? No person, over age 25, wants to draw attention to that area.
But the real problem is the way the color keeps on running and running. The label says to wash it before wearing, but once simply isn't enough. I've washed the pants four times already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonTerrier I bought three pair!
I had to come back to say after buying two pair in one size, I bought a third pair in a size larger to accommodate long underwear for this winter. That's how much I love these pants!

Rated 4 out of 5 by magos Comfort wins out
I am 5'6" and 130lbs. My hips and thighs are slim, with a 32" waist and most pants fit too baggy at hips and too tight at waist and are too short or long. These pants fit me very well in all respects. The waist falls a bit below my natural waist and is not tight and bindy. The length is perfect, and the pant is not baggy in the hips or legs but is also not a skinny tight fit. The material is soft and a nice weight for cooler weather, too hot for summer wear. The midnight wash color is darker than denim. The only complaint I have is after wearing for a day the material starts to stretch out a bit due to the knit material, but comfort wins out for me.
