Rated 4 out of 5áby nathansmom Snow Pants
The fit was very good, the pants were warm and very well made. I am very short - 5 ft. - and looked like a round ball in these pants. I decided they were not for the use I had intended them for. I needed waterproof pants, not snow pants. My mistake.

Rated 2 out of 5áby GrJn Snow pants not for me
These snowpants were well made and would have been perfect except that they were not made for a body like mine. The pants were so tight across the abdomen that I could not zip them . . . surely the fault of my expanding middle not the pants themselves.

Rated 3 out of 5áby uva02 small waist
Wanted to love these. They are exactly what I need. I found the inseam to be really short. I couldn't zip them. I am typically a 14, and always fit well in LLBean's large size. In this case, I think it's because they were trying to zip right at my hips, rather than higher up toward my waist. They have to go back.

Rated 2 out of 5áby SoChick Bad fit in Plus
I ordered two pair of these, in different sizes, and struck out with both. I am normally an 18w. The 2x was way too big. The waist was way too loose, the hips and thighs too big and bulky. The legs were HUGE. I looked like I was wearing the bottom half of a gray space suit. I ordered the 1x next, which were too tight in the seat and thighs. The lower legs were better, but still big. There ARE much better fitting plus snow pants out there (I found some), so these had to go back.

Rated 3 out of 5áby NoVaTraveler Too bulky
I agree with previous reviewers that these are more bulky than necessary. I ordered size large in the snow pants. I am wearing a pair of LL Bean corduroys right now in a size 12. I wanted to use them both as ski pants and also for an Antarctic expedition, but they are too bulky in the legs to pack well and they just look bulky. I probably would have been fine with the size large rather than medium since I want them loose enough for long underwear.
As further info I chatted online with the helpdesk prior to purchase and was told they would serve as ski pants (although I don't think they are designed that way). I also asked if the helpdesk could give me the statistics on the waterproofing (like 20,000+ mm) so I could compare to some other brands, and they did not have that info. I was told to not buy less than 28,000 mm for Antarctica so it is a shame that LL Bean does not provide this info as these snow pants otherwise come recommended on various Antarctica discussion forums and blogs. I think I will make-do with actual ski pants topped by thin rain pants.
If these pants are intended for use while you shovel your driveway, then I guess they will be fine.

I highly recommend these snowpants! Great quality, warm and awesome for some fun snowy play! Good fit and overall 5 stars! We always buy our snow gear from LLBean and they last through the season looking new.

Rated 5 out of 5áby pmit Great pants!
So glad I ordered these! While I did order a 2x (I usually wear an 18W) , they fit great! Had plenty of room to bend and move, and my legs stayed so warm in the snow! Best purchase ever for Chicago snow days with the grandkids!!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby wisconsinhiker68 Finally snow and cold so I can wear my Snow Pants!
Snowy roads and a cold wind, just right for a hike. I donned my LLB silk long johns and shirt, a sweatshirt, stretchy yoga pants, my new Snow pants, my Baxter State Parka, my LLBean boots [made in Canada years ago] and recycled sweater mittens. Out the door I went.
As a 5'2" woman the length of the pants are a tad long. The metal hooks on the inner nylon pant leg are a mystery. Why are they there?
A silent walk or ski is out of the question because as I walked I heard noise...a lot of noise. Its my inner lining of the parka rubbing against the outer fabric of the pants. When I rolled up the parka away from my legs the noise was not as noticeable, just a little whisper of fabric. Perhaps I need to wear a waist length vest and sweater combo instead of my parka?
The multitude of pockets allowed me to carry keys, cell phone, tissues, lip balm. And the hook and look fasteners at the waist allow for ease of adjustment.
I am very happy with my Snow pant purchase!

Enjoy the pants; can't wait to try them. Fit is good and love the Velcro adjustments that can be made to the waist.
