Boys' Mesh Lined Track Pants
Great Fit, Weak Knees
I have a very tall, very thin 8-year old that is impossible to please when it comes to pants. These fit great and were instant favorites. But, as mentioned in other reviews, had holes in the knees within just a few wearings.

My son loves these pants. I wish they were made with stronger material outside.

I have every color of these pants for my son.
My son loves these pants and he wanted every color they had. They fit great. The only concern he has is that they make noise when he walks. But he wears them every day. 5 colors - 5 days of school each week and you have his wardrobe.

These pants are just what my active 7 year old son needs. They fit well at the waist. They are the correct length (he is of "average" height). There is plenty of room for him to move around. That material isn't too heavy so he doesn't sweat so much while he is running around at top speed. Always happy with the clothes I buy for my kids at LE.

Good Buy if On Sale
This is the second pair of these pants I have purchased. They do run large. My 12 year old normally wears a large and they swallowed him. The medium fits well with a bit of room to grow. My 8 year old normally wears a medium but this medium was too big. I got him a small, and they just fit- barely. These do wash and wear very well, and when they are on sale I plan to buy another pair for each of them.

Ideal for PE days at school
My third-grader wears these on days that he has PE. They are comfortable and functional, and they also look neat for the rest of the school day. He has three pair in his rotation - red, navy and bright blue. They are best for spring and fall but could work for a northeast winter with a base layer. If I were to suggest an improvement it would be to offer these in slim sizing.

I love the look of these pants and bought two pairs. Unfortunately, the material is quite flimsy and the knees have given out in both pants after only a few wearings. One pair had a couple of holes in the knee before my son decided to roll down a hill. When he came back up, the entire knee was ripped open and cannot be worn. I have bought a lot of clothes for my son from Land's End and these pants are one of the very few things that I have been unhappy with.

Not the quality I was hoping for.
The material is thin and feels like it will rip the first time my son's knees hit the ground. The liner is nice but these are going back. For the price I can get better quality from other stores for less $. Also, I ordered the green and its a much darker green than it appeared in the catalog. I was also disappointed in the shade of green.

Holes in knees in multiple pairs - buyer beware.
I purchased multiple pairs of these pants for both of my older sons. A few months later, all three of them have holes in them. I cannot recommend these pants and will be sending them back. The material is simply too thin. I buy my fair share of "comfy pants," having three boys, and LE pants are the worst quality of all.

Quality has changed
As with all things Lands' end the quality has changed over the years and the price has increased. These pants use to have a nicer trim down the side of the legs, zippers at the bottom and a different material for the overall pants. I still like these pants but I'm not impressed at the price increase when the quality has diminished. Stop with the frequent sales and sell your clothing at appropriate prices. Don't skimp on quality. People will pay more for consistent quality.
