Boys' Open Bottom Climber™ Pants
Love that these indigo pants were denim.
We have a tough time finding pants, denim especially, for our special needs guy. He's 17, tall and very skinny. We bought 18 Reg and they fit a little big at the waist and through the legs. Length is perfect so I hope he doesn't get any taller! If these were available in slims (18 or 20) we would have gone with that sizing.

Love climber pants!
I have been buying these for years! One of my boys needs the slim and the other needs regular or husky, but they fit both boys well. The fabric is comfortable, holds up well, and resists stains. I was so very disappointed that these were not available in the regular denim this year. I do not like the dark denim as well. I had to try another style for the regular denim, and although that style was okay, it was not as good as these! Please bring back the denim!!!

bring back the stonewashed indigo color PLEASE!
I love these pants for my son with special needs. I have been buying them for YEARS. It is very hard to find something with a fully elastic waist that looks stylish and is made of denim (as opposed to sweat pants). Their used to be a lighter color denim option. Now there is only the dark denim option. My son has been wearing his new pants for over a month and the dark blue dye is STILL rubbing off onto his hands. His hands look filthy all the time. I washed the pants multiple times the first week when I realized it was going to be a problem and it didn't solve a thing. I have 5 pairs because these are the only pants I buy for him other than gym pants and shorts. Even after multiple washings initially, and regular washings since, the blue dye is STILL rubbing off on his hands. It has been over a month!! This is really bad. These are great pants but unless you have your heart set on denim I would go with any of the other color options.

Perfect for school and church
Great quality! We have ordered these pants every year for the last SEVEN years:-)

the best school pants!
I have purchased these pants three times for my son. He can get them on and off easily. They are very soft against his skin, he is super picky about the way clothes feel. The knees last all school year with out wearing out. These pants look nice enough for church and are durable enough for rough and tumble play at school. I suggest you get two of each color, since you will be washing them all the time.

This is the third pair I have bought for my son. Comfortable, wear well and versatile for casual or for church. Will buy again and again.

Well made, but extra roomy
My son likes the comfort and style of these pants. But, if you have a 'regular' size boy, you might need a slim, as I did. They are a little too roomy, otherwise. He is ten, and has worn 10 slim for two years. Now it's time to move up to the 12 slim, especially for length. He does not normally wear a slim. Still they fit him well. You just have to know what size to buy. (The old ones will be handed down to his cousin now.) The only reason I gave 4 Sailboats instead of 5 is the sizing.

So easy to put on and take off, no zippers or snaps!!!!
Thank you for bringing this pant back, It has always been the best fit for my son who is a skinny child with CP.
The style makes so much easier for him to independently put on and take off, and is still "stylish" for an older child in a wheelchair!!!

Year after year after year...
After all these years, I figured I should review this product. So easy for our son to slide on; so durable. His only favorites for the last 10 years. Yes, they comes in slim fit for both Little Boys and Big Boys sizes. I always cut off the elastic belt, and it doesn't even look like something is missing. The navy fades a bit after a couple of years of washing, but by that time he is ready for a new size. I just keep an extra pair or two up on the closet shelf that I mark on the inside as "dress pants". They only come down when he needs his brightest, newest look (church, restaurants...) so they don't go through the wash as often, and they stay brighter. I just wish these slacks were available as in-between sizes, e.g. instead of just sizes 4,6,8,10... maybe there could be sizes 4,5,6,7,8,9,10... Judging from the large number of reviews and high praise given to this product, I think Land's End could support the inventory, even if none of the other slacks have these special sizes. Then our son wouldn't look like he was waiting for the flood just before he was tall enough for the next size. (No, he doesn't like wearing pants that are too long and rolling up the bottom into a cuff, and hemming them would leave a crease line.) This is only a minor annoyance, since my boy isn't too fashion-conscious. No other pants I have found come in the in-between sizes either, so these still get 5 stars. If Land's End adds those extra sizes I'll give them 6 stars!

Way too big on my 5 yr old
After all the awesome reviews I was really excited about these pants for my picky 5 yr old who mostly likes sweats & track pants... The fabric was really not very soft (similar to other khakis) and the fit in a size 4 was huge on him even though I ordered 3 other LE pant styles in the same size that fit well. Too long & way too wide. If I pulled the belt tight it was super bunched up around the waist. I dont think (?) there was a slim fit in the little boys sizes. That being said love the concept of the reinforced knees & wish more of the other pants had that...
