Rated 5 out of 5 by Maintrealer Go two sizes too small!
Had to harvest during a frost and these guys were great. Glad I read the reviews to go a couple sizes smaller. I almost didn't go with the XS but they're a good fit, and are even slightly loose for my taste. For others to compare, I'm 5'6", 135lbs, size 28 pants and would've initially gone with medium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bubbie4 Winter made warmer
The feel is wonderful. The length perfect. But best of all, the ankle fits perfectly without binding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by motorcyclingmama Not like compression; comfy!
I have no fairing on my motorcycle. Wore these under my jeans while riding on a day where outside temps. were in the 50's. Kept me warm, dry, and forgot I had them on as they were so comfy. I would compare them to another brands 'base 2' in terms of warmth. As it gets colder, I'm likely to wear them under my fleece lined jeans (also from LLbean) & should be good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ishop4value Great Under Layer!
These mid-weight long underwear pants are soft and warm. Roomy through the seat which I appreciate -- I don't like binding clothing. Fit well under slacks and provide warmth outdoors without being too warm inside. I ordered size small (I wear size 6-8 slacks) and they are true to size. Really appreciate the petite length!

I was skeptical about synthetic leggings but I'm so glad I gave these a try! After taking them out of the box I was also skeptical that these would provide any warmth, being so thin. But I'm very pleased with them and it almost seems that they warm up as you do! I mainly wear them for walking dogs and outdoor training and on very cold days I can also wear them to work under my jeans. After reading the reviews about ordering a size down I tried a Medium Petite and they fit perfectly. I am 5'4", 150lb, and my body shape is pretty much like an egg with sticks for legs, if that's any help. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by goldemMom Perfect weight; perfect length
First thank you everyone for your reviews and the recommendation to order a size smaller. My pants arrived last night during a wind chill advisory in Southern Maryland. This morning we were at a negative temp with the wind chill. As I walked my Corgi before sunrise, my legs were toasty warm. I'm sitting at work with my pants under my jeans. These will be perfect under my rain pants. It was a little tough getting my jeans on over the base layer. It isn't as smooth and silky as my other budget thermal underwear. I will get a lot of wear out of them and plan to order another pair.
I am just under 5ft 3 and require a petite. Thank you LL Bean for offering them in a petite. PERFECT FIT once I ordered a size down. FYI, I currently sit between a LL Bean Petite 10 and 8 - so the small did work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by northerneronthegrand Runs Very Large
Disappointed in the fit of these midweight base layer pants. I ordered two & was looking forward to having them for the winter months ahead. I'm 5 ft tall, 115 lbs. and ordered the XS Petite. Sadly, they were not only very loose in the leg, making them unsuitable for wearing under pants, but also much too long. Since they do not come any smaller, I guess I'm out of luck.
If you are interested in using them as PJ's, they might work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rosebudoh Midweight? More Like No Weight!
Very disappointed with this item. Selected midweight because I wanted something lighter than heavy weight but enough to keep me warm when walking in Cleveland, OH winter weather. These pants are so flimsy and loose there is no cling at all. I ordered XS based on previous reviews and the waistband is still too large to stay up around my waist. I really wanted the Expedition weight pants but they were not available when I placed my order (the Expedition weight top is perfect). Hoping that I can order a pair of those as a replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Merl734 Excellent Thermal Pants
The Blue Jay color is gorgeous. I am 63 years old and just under 5 feet tall and weigh about 120 pounds and the Petite Medium fits comfortably--I have somewhat long legs for my size so I don't have to roll these pants up too much and the fit is good being not too tight or loose. Also, the poly fabric is much more practical and durable than silk that only lasts about 2 years with regular washing and wear; and the poly fab is comfortable and breathable. Love these. Only wish is that they were also available in white or beige.
