Women's Fit 3 Sport Knit Pants
Nice and Comfy
These are so comfortable and lightweight, but they are a bit oversized. I happen to enjoy a slightly larger fit, but many people like a perfect fit. The olive color is nice and neutral and should go with just about anything. I normally wear a size 1X but I wear an XL in these pants. I am giving 4 stars/boats because of the fit, not construction or materials.

Great Pants for Everything!!! Don't discontinue them like you did before!!!
These they are great pants.....period. I currently wear them to work, and I have worn them for years to work. I am in the education field, teaching from Jr. High to College, and they are always presentable, professional and comfortable. Most of the winter I wear a turtleneck, sweater and these pants. I go between buildings at the university and they keep my legs warm when it is very cold and snowy. The pockets are indespensible. They are needed for tissues, pens and keys. I am still wearing some of these pants that are at least 15 years old, but I bought some new colors, too, to add to my wardrobe and used the old ones on the weekend. I have replaced the standyby colors for work, too. I was very sad that you took them out of the lineup for a while, but glad that you brought them back. Don't discontinue them again, please. They are fantastic!!

Comfy, but won't wear outside house
I still miss the stretch knit pants that Land's End had for years - I lived in them, and had them in every color, and then one day I went to reorder and they were gone. The customer service rep suggested I try these as a substitute ... but they are not even close to the old style. The fabric pills and stretches out, the pants look frumpy from nearly the first time you wear them. The pockets are so bulky that they add the look of 5 pounds to your waist - which I can't afford, and they are droopy on the back side which is not a good look. I kept the pants and wear them around the house because they are comfortable - but they are not a good value when used this way.
I wish Land's End would bring back my old favorites. The fabric was the same as the new Starfish line, but the cut of the pants was just a bit more relaxed. They didn't have any pockets which was wonderful for a clean line and comfort - even the little zippered one on the Starfish line can tend to bunch up and is a bit too much extra fabric at the waist, and the zipper can end up sticking out or being uncomfortable. My old style came to the natural waist, and didn't pull too tight in the inseam. The waist band was similar to the Sport Knit Pants, with the elastic band only about 1 inch wide - where the Starfish Refined band is so wide that the top half tends to roll down, making it a bit more bulky and tight around the waist. They came in straight leg and boot cut. I've been looking for a replacement for the comfort and style of these pants ever since Land's End stopped selling them ... and I've yet to find anything that is as well designed for looks and comfort.
The Sports Knit has the comfort, but looks horrible. The Starfish Refined looks good, but is pretty uncomfortable when wearing all day. So I guess my search for the perfect pant continues.

24 hours, wherever sweats are worn.
I use a pale pair with a turtleneck and sweatshirt for pajamas, because it is cold in the northwest. They are that comfortable. I wear a colored pair for working around the house and garden (though they snag around the blackberries). They are soft cotton, with elastic waist that is not so tight that it hurts the back, as do many. The TALL is just right for someone entering the tall range, probably not long enough for someone 6 feet tall. I love the new COBALT color. I wish they would make a bright blue-torquoise now. I must admit that I buy them on deep sale, because $35 is a high cost to pay for housewear. They are not appropriate for wearing to town, because they hug the rear too comfortably.

Recommend if for only around the house
I have worn Sport Knit pants for years and loved them. Lately the fabric gets thinner and does not 'snap' back'. When it stretches, the stretch keeps getting bigger. Also, when washed they come out of the dryer wrinkled, the old ones did not. Lands End, when you have a great product, don't 'mess' with it!

I have no idea who these pants could possibly be made for
In a word? Horrible. The legs are short, the crotch hangs low, even if you pull them up to under your bra line; but then if you do, they aren't pants anymore, they're capris.
They stretch out within minutes of wear. Yes, minutes.
The only person I can ever imagine being able to wear these is someone is under five feet tall, with two foot long legs and a very long upper torso. It would help if they carried absolutely every ounce of their weight under their belly button.
This has to be have been the worst Lands End purchase I have ever made. These pants are not worth it at any price.

The seat of these pants is HUGE!
I ordered a size small. You could easily take four inches off each side of the seat and thighs and still have a comfortable fit. It's a shame, too, because Lands End actually makes a length that suits me perfectly.

Good Buy - Good Description
I bought these in Radish Red and size LARGE Regular. I am 5' 6" and weigh 185 lbs. Pretty color and nice soft material. They were too loose in the hips #I am an Apple, not a Pear# but fit better after washed and dried in dryer, but now are a tad shorter than I like. They will be fine with a pair of low shoes or sandals but next time I would order them in Tall instead of Regular. They do stretch out in the knees but I want them for casual wear - around the house or a quick run to the store and they will be fine for that. They will also be good for yoga and other exercise. They would not be appropriate to wear to work in any professional job.

These pants are comfort, comfort, comfort!!
This is my third pair of these pants and if they had them in another color (on sale) other then the radish (I have two pairs) in medium I would be purchasing them - yes, they are very, very high waisted but so very comfortable - I use them for around the house EVERY DAY 24/7 and if in a rush under a coat if I am going out. I work hard both out of the home and in the home and when I am at home comfort is essential and these pants are just the answer. Yes, they are baggy in the backside - so? I'm waiting for other colors to come on sale so I can purchase. The fabric is good quality and they are very well made. Life is too short not to be comfortable around the house!!!

very high waist, runs very large
These knit pants run extremely large, I wear a size 14, ordered these pants in medium (which is supposed to be size 10-12) and they are baggy. Although I was expecting a high waist I can pull this waist up to under my arms and that is just too high.... I will keep them since I bought them for the very low clearance price but can not recommend unless you are pregnant or like your pants extremely high waisted.
