Rated 4 out of 5 by OnlineTchr from Mostly good I have two pair of these jeans. In fact, they're the only jeans I own. They fit well and are comfortable. I have to agree that the reflective strip inside the lower leg is an issue. On one pair, the strip scratches my leg, but I have not been able to remove it, afraid it will damage the jeans. The site used to show a model wearing these with the bottom rolled up a bit so you could see the strip, and it was cute, but even if you wanted to do that, you wouldn't need this very long strip that reaches up a little over the middle of the shin. That's annoying, but otherwise happy with these jeans and they have held up well over a year with lots of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansReviewer from Perfect fit Perfect fit--a size 6 fits me (5'6", 133) with no gap at the waist, no bagginess in the rise, and the legs thankfully are not skin tight--my thighs are wider and I really dislike tightness there. But they are just right. I wore these on a long roundtrip flight recently, and they were perfectly comfortable, not restrictive in any way, and they kept their shape. FYI, the reflective strip lining the calves did set off the scanner in airport security, so I got a pat down. Aside from that, they are a great pair of jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustMe20 from Great for the apple shape I ordered these jeans because I read another review that said, "These might fit someone who is short and has a big waist." I thought, "That's me!" And that person was right. I have a hard time finding jeans that fit. The LLBean classic waist pants put the waistband up under my breasts. And I usually have to choose between fitting in the waist and being baggy in the hips or fitting the hips and being too tight in the waist. These jeans are a great fit. They are a close fit, but they aren't at all uncomfortable because they're very stretchy. In spite of being so stretchy, they do hold their shape pretty well. I can wear them all day sitting at my desk and they do not look at all baggy at the end of the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kiwimonsta from Love These Jeans I love these jeans! I ordered a pair and had to buy another pair a month later because they're great. In fact, I'm about to order my third pair, I live in these jeans. They're comfy, fit true-to-size, and are robust denim not like some jeans which has such soft fabric they wear through at the slightest abrasion. My only complaint is that the back belt loop is too small, it's smaller than the other loops, so only one belt fits through it, limiting the belts I can use. Also, the front pockets are quite shallow, which isn't ideal. Fix those two issues and these would be 5-star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SweetPotato76 from Perfect! These are the perfect jeans! Enough stretch to be comfortable. Not too tight, not too loose, and a comfy, low waist. Makes my butt look amazing (seriously- I had a strange woman follow me through a store to ask where I got these jeans because they look so good!) Note: the faded indigo color fits great, while the darker color fits at least a half size smaller. PLEASE make these with the same straight leg in more colors!!! (I tried the performance jeans you have in colors, but the "slim leg," even in a full size larger than what I wear in these, was laughably tight-- they felt good, but looked painted on)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdsbc1 from Favorite Jeans I only purchase this style of jeans for several reasons. The give and stretch is wonderfully forgiving. The jeans do not get caught in my chain when I ride my bicycle. The jeans come with built in reflectors (for riding at night). The belt around the waist fits close to my waist, but allows for my thighs and booty to fit comfortably. If you are a curvy woman who is active, these jeans will be your best bet. Lastly, they last for at least 2 years! Anytime they are on sale, I jump on purchasing them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Silsbymountain from Nice jeans, but Sizing is Extremely Inconsistent I really love these jeans, enough that I’ve ordered numerous pairs. The problem is that the sizing is all over the place! I had to go up a size in the Dark Indigo, but even in a bigger size the waist varies by 1 1/2” from pair to pair. The Washed Indigo fit in my normal size, but I have received pairs that vary by 1” in the waist. Purchasing these jeans online has been frustrating, as I keep having to exchange them. Trying on a pile of them in a store would be a lot simpler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderchick from Performance stretch jeans I am being very honest I have never ever purchased a pair of jeans from LL Bean today I decided to try on this pair of jeans and couldn’t believe how well they fit. I have never found a pair of jeans that fit to perfection until I found these I ended up purchasing two pairs . I couldn’t find any faults with this pair of jeans I hope they continue to keep them in the store because I will continue to buy them I am very happy with these jeans. I wear a size 4 regular and I am super happy.These are my forever jeans and I gave them a five star rating thank LLBEAN
