Rated 3 out of 5 by Dorothy from Making them work for me These cropped pants fit pretty well (if slightly snug through the waist and upper leg) and are comfortable. Fabric is good. The reason they don't get a higher rating from me is that I'm making do with a less-than-optimal style. My nitpicks: (1) Am I the only person in the world that would prefer a capri style (inseam maybe 21" instead of 23")? Can't seem to find this anywhere. Since these have no ornament at the bottom I can fold them up a couple of times and make them work. (2) The flare at bottom is unnecessary and, to me, unfortunate. I'd prefer a little more fitted style in the lower leg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Exploress from Almost Perfect These were my "go-to" pant for a 2-week Grand Canyon raft trip. They are long enough to protect your legs from the super hot sun while in the boat, stretchy enough for maneuvering through/up/over slot canyons on day hikes, light enough that you don't get hot and they dry super fast after blasting through the rapids. Great, zippered pockets. I LOVE THESE PANTS - with one exception - the inside seams sometimes chafe muscular thighs. If you are a "Skinny Minnie", there will be no problem. To LLBean: a different stitching method would make this capri 5 stars! All-in-all - a great capri for any outdoor activity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LoopHI from Inconsistent sizing, poor quality snap I have purchased and returned at least 8 pair of these cropped pants. First the sizing is not consistent. Same size but totally different cut. Second, the length is long. I am above average ht. but needed to take a petite to make the legs look ok. Main problem with these as well as the shorts is that the snap is of poor quality. It doesn't stay snapped. Not all of the pants have the same poor quality snap. So after 8 pairs I found one that looks good and snap stays snapped. LL Bean always takes back what one doesn't like, but I am at the point of ordering more than I need, just hoping one will work. A big waste of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoldfinchGarden from You won't be disappointed! I now have these capris in 3 colors--and I absolutely love them! They wear well, come through laundering like a champ (no color fading), stains come out with little effort, and just try to snag these--you can't! I use these for everyday wear. All those pockets make them ideal for errands. I wear these in cool fall and early spring with thicker, longer socks. It looks less than fashionable, but it keeps me at the ideal temp when working around the house and yard (when long pants would be too hot). Of course, in summer, I wear them as intended, ditching the warm socks. Can't say enough good about these. The blue color is a bright navy--very pretty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gypseygirl from Functional, well constructed & comfortable. These are near perfect pants for traveling. I am 5'2" and weigh 165 and curvy. The petite 14 is a near perfect fit. They are well constructed, light, dry quickly, and the 4 zippered pockets make them functionally superior to other pants for traveling. However, because they are unnescessarily wide at the calf and a bit baggy at the rear upper thigh they are not very flattering. Since I have very large calves, thighs and butt, this is an obvious pattern flaw. The rear crotch area needs some adjustment which I can do. If your pattern maker adjusts that crotch and narrows the lower leg a little, they will get 6 stars next year!! Thanks for a consistently well constructed product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Naplesgal from Disappointed I have bought several of these cropped pants and also the shorts in the past. I've been wearing a size 8 for years. Now that I'm older and thru menopause I ordered a larger size hoping they would be roomier and more comfortable in the waist. The size 10 fit the same as the 8. I kept them although they were a little snug. Well I just ordered 2 of the cropped pants in different colors in size 12. Well, they fit the same as the 8's and 10's!!! What's going on with your sizes? There was a time when we could always depend on LL Bean for quality. I am truly disappointed. I love these pants and wish I could just find a pair that was comfortable in the waist! Sorry, they'll be coming back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LbgLady from Runs small, order up a size Very nice, useful capris. They definitely run small. I read previous reviews and ordered up a size and it was perfect. This pant is not trim at the bottom. It is straight or even flairs slightly, so it has a tendency to look a little dumpy compared with the modern styles of tighter legs. It also runs a little long on my 5'4" height, which contributes to the "dumpiness". However, I trust LLBean that this is a benefit for hiking when, after all, we are not concerned with fashion, and have been cuffing the pants twice for the meantime as I decide whether to attempt to shorten then somewhat. Very comfortable and great fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tempepest from Comfort trail pants I just bought my second pair of these wonderful cropped pants! They are amazingly sturdy-- I have non-stopped washed and worn my first pair and they are still looking good (over a year later!) I often wear them biking in the heat of Arizona, and yet always look presentable when I wear them to tutor at an elementary school. They were indispensible on a trip abroad-- easy to pack and always look good (no wrinkles to contend with). I like my pant legs loose so often order "up" a pant size, so I really appreciate the adjustable waist elastic, so that I can have the extra leg/thigh room and yet have them also fit around my waist. Please don't ever discontinue these!!!!
