Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome travel pants I purchased these prior to several upcoming trips in Europe. I am absolutely blown away by them. The workmanship is wonderful, they fit perfectly as listed in your size graph, and the color (I bought graphite) is great. They are a great poly/spandex mix which I've had before in pants and they wash and wear beautifully. Pockets great & easy to access and the slight leg taper is perfect. Also light in the suitcase! Please, please, please come up with other colors. I will buy them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love Bought these to wear to work as business casual. I will be living in them from spring through Thanksgiving. So comfortable they feel like pajamas and the fit is very flattering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I found the pants did not look like the photo of this product, specifically the width of pants legs at the ankle. I did not expect them to be oversized when the photo showed them to be straight legged. I would have returned them, but I had no confidence that a smaller size would be any different. While I decided to keep them for wear at home, I would not wear them anywhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants...versatile and wrinkle resistant We're going to be traveling to CA in a few weeks (hopefully) and these pants will work well for packing and wearing on the trip. When I read reviews stating that the pants run big...size down, I sized down and wish I hadn't. I had to return them for my regular size. To me, they run according to normal sizing. They're a great three season pant (too thin for winter in Midwest). Thank you Orvis for a great, versatile pair of pants that can be casual or dressed up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and light weight Good looking light weight pants for walking. Great pockets, many pants have small pockets not big enough for phones, these pants have good sized pockets. Grey is a good color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your new “sweats”! Lightweight, wash and wear pants. Runs large so I ordered down a size. Nice deep pockets, silky fabric makes them look like dress pants but much more comfortable! I wear these more than my jeans now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit and look These pants are great. Unfortunately, I let my iron get too hot when pressing out wrinkles from packing and burned a hole in my first pair. So, this was a reorder. Be assured, it really means COOL iron!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft, silky fabric Will use them for travel whenever I can get back to that. Don't wrinkle .Feel great against your skin. The gray have gray and white threads combined to give the effect of gray flannel, I guess. It's not convincing and makes the fabric look synthetic, which it is, but I kept them because they are so comfy. The black are great. My normal size fits fine. I'm 5'4" so they don't look short like the picture on the model.
