Women's Activewear Control Slim Pants
Great for exercise
After trying one pair for a while, I bought a bunch of these pants to wear to the gym. They have good stretch, dry fast in the dryer, and don't fade quickly the way Starfish pants do. They do shrink a bit in the first couple of washes, but they don't lose a whole size. My waist is a lot smaller than my hips, so I took a couple of tucks in the waistband for better fit.

High quality active wear!
I ordered these pants because I was looking for a straight leg active wear pant to replace my (dated) boot cut pants. I was very pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the item. The amount of compression is just right. Not constricting, but rather supporting. The sizing was just right; I ordered small (5'4" 120 lbs.). They washed beautifully on gentle cycle, cold water, low heat to dry. Very high quality, especially compared to it's competitor. I immediately ordered 2 more pairs. I hope they never stop making these.

AMAZING Universal Pant -- Office to Exercise to Dinner
Yes, indeed! Believe it! I am a corporate executive .. I have worn these pants to wear with my heels and jacket to work ------ compliments every single time. The pants are amazing.. feel great and look very expensive. I have also worn these out with my evening shoes and top -- again .. more compliments.. Oh, and, yes, I have exercised in them.. however, I prefer to "save" these for work & dinner.
I am sad however... because it seems this product will not be available after all the pants are sold. Please Please Please, Landsend, -- bring these pants back - I need mediums!

wish there were more colors
I love this particular style of activewear pants. They fit wonderfully, are very comfortable and wash and wear perfectly (I use cold water and low dryer heat) Unlike the other version the material for these is not shiny - a big plus for me. Please offer these in more colors.

Love these pants!
These pants are comfortable and flattering! Thank you for making them in Petites!!! I wear them to exercise or around town. Proportioned just right for a slim pant but not a legging.

These are my favorite pants !
I love the fabric. It's smooth, soft and so comfortable for working out, shopping or just being at home. They don't get damp from perspiration. They have washed like a dream. I had two pair and ordered a third pair today. I had shopped all over town for workout pants and these are the only ones that fit well. Another great benefit is that my dog's white hair does not stick to them !!!

These pants fit nicely and will last a long time. I purchased a pair of these pants 5 years ago and they have held their shape.

Nearly perfect, but inseam way too long for the average woman
The material of these pants is fantastic. Though they seemed tight when i first put them on, it was that tightness that flattened my belly and smoothed out the lumps in my thighs! Who could ask for more? They ended up not making me feel "sqaushed in" after all. The Large fit me perfectly, except for the ridiculously long hem. I now have to pay for having them taken up. I probably should have ordered the petite size, even though the inseam is a bit short for someone 5'5-1/2'. I have not yet worn these to the gym, but I am looking forward to seeing how well they wick sweat. I will also take neighborhood walks in them once it warms up. I have two pairs of the Starfish slim-legged knit pants, and these are even better because of the tummy and thigh slimming. I might wear these around as regular pants, except that the ones I ordered on sale have a purple stripe down the side. I will buy or order a T-shirt to match.

Great Pants for All Athletic Activities
I ordered these pants out of desperation to hike in. I hike long distances and was frustrated with the popular athletic brands. These pants were PERFECT in every way. I am 5'4, weigh 140 pounds, and I ordered the Small, and the fit was perfect but a tad on the big size. I ordered some more and got the XS, and the fit was better. After reading the reviews, I saw the length of the petite would be too short so I got the regular and then dried them. It turned out just right. The best part of these great-fitting pants is that they fit at my natural waist instead of low as most of the athletic brands. These other brands pants tend to dig in and rub the scar of a previous surgery, so these LandsEnd pants can be worn for athletic activity all day without chafing or rubbing the scar. I love these pants and highly recommend them. I hike in them, run in them, and wear them as fitted pants with boots for work. The material is nice and thick, and these pants are good to wear on cold activities outdoors. Lands End, please keep these pants EXACTLY as they are. I want to always be able to order more!!!

Good length, nice fit
I am 5'8" and 130 lbs. I sized up to a medium/tall. Although these are athletic pants, they can be worn for casual wear or dressed up.
