Boys' Open Bottom Climber? Pants
The only pants you'll need to buy!
I have twin boys, 14 yrs, and they have been in Land's End climber pants since elementary school; I just keep buying the next size up as they grow. They haven't had much need for any other pants - the climbers are great for school and play (love the double knees) and work for even "dressier" occasions - out to dinner, recitals, parties - just add a nice polo and sweater vest. Fit great - just roll the bottoms up if they are too long and they grow with you. Easy on/off even for the littlest children - I work at a school and so many kids cannot handle the zippers and tough snaps on jeans. Just pull these up - elastic waist is comfy and easy and the belt gives a custom fit (adds a dressy touch too). Weight is perfect year round. My kids wear them every day, and I wash them after every wear (who knows what they sit on at school!) and the colors/shape/fabric have held up fabulously. They always outgrow them before they are worn out - even the knees are fine. So instead of buying lots of different pants for kids who are growing so fast, just invest in a few climber pants and you're good until the next growth spurt.

So far working great
These pants with the adjustable elastic belt are working great. He was having a problem with elastic waist pants riding down but with these we can tighten them just enough for him to get them off and on easily but they stay up. The quality is superb and he wears them daily to school. For a child with some disabilities they have solved a big problem for us.

Dye from Pants gets everywhere
Come on Landsend! I've had these dark wash jeans for five months and the blue dye still gets all over my sons white shoes, socks, hands, etc. I have tried soaking the jeans to set he dye, washing them in hot water and nothing helps. It certainly can't be safe to have this much dye next to a childs skin. You can do somthing about this now do it.

Only pants my autistic son will wear. Please do not discontinue these Lands End!
A few years ago I searched high and low for jeans with no zippers, buttons, or difficult closures and could not find anything. Then I was lucky enough to find exactly what I needed for my son on Lands End. I bought 3 pairs and after wearing his first pair to school one day, my son was hooked and refuses to wear any other pants. I buy 3 to 4 pairs every year but now my son is on the last size offered of 20 Husky. I want to join the other 400 plus reviewers in asking that you continue these pants and also start making them in even bigger sizes and possibly with a choice of hemmed inseam like you do with adult pants. My son would happily wear these throughout his adulthood. Also please bring back the heavier denim material you had the year before. The new dark indigo is a thinner, less sturdy material though it's still nice. Maybe offer both colors? If you continue making these pants and with bigger sizes, you would be helping many customers like me that have children with special needs and have happy customers for many many years to come.

Awesome pull-on jeans for boys who hate jeans
My boys hate jeans, but sometimes the sweatpants won't cut it! I bought two different sizes of the denim version of these pants and both boys love them. Fit is true-to-size. The denim does not shrink at all. Very sturdy fabric and I expect them to last a long time. The only warning I would give is to wash the dark denim pants separately, in warm water, for at least the first 4-5 washings to keep the dye from bleeding into the rest of your laundry. After that, they stop bleeding when washed on cold with the rest of the dark, cold water load. I would still buy them again as the overall quality is excellent.

My brother is paralyzed on the left side of his body, so wasn't able to wear jeans because of the zip/snap/button. He's a smaller adult and able to wear these. It's helped his self esteem and confidence tremendously.

Have been buying these pants for years
Love these pants, my kids don't complain about wearing them because they are almost as comfortable as sweats and they look nice enough to wear with a sweater to church. Easy to get on and off. My kids hate wearing dress pants or jeans and these are the only non-sweats they will wear without complaining.

Great for metal allergy sufferers
My 9 year old is allergic to certain metals, that make purchasing pants for him a nightmare, having to deal with all the buttons, snaps, zippers, etc. It was easier when he was younger but as he gets older the only "metal" free pants are the "track suit" type or sweatpants. Then I found land's end. The quality of these pants is excellent, the fabric seems very substantial (to keep up with a 9 year old very active boy) and it seems comfortable. My son was very happy to not have to deal with snaps, buttons and we are both happy that his allergies are under control. Thank You Land's end! Will be purchasing more of these! Please make them in more colors!!

kids love these
I have been a faithful purchaser of these pants as my boys have grown. They love the ease with which these elastic waist pants pull-on. I love that they always clean-up well and look presentable. My only complaint is that the rear pockets are so thick at the seam area that it begins to wear away the material in the seat of the pants - before the knees wear out!! This is especially true in the blue jean fabric - 2 small wear spots begin to show and then the fabric wears through. But overall, I would recommend these pants. My kids request them.

Rugged pants that look nice
We've been buying these for years. They take all the abuse my kid dishes out and still look great. I love that they are rugged enough to be play pants but still look a bit more put together than more casual pants.
