Rated 3 out of 5 by kmckay from wish they had a drawstring I’ve purchased these men’s athletic sweatpants in the past few years for my father and for my son -- this time, however, we noticed they did away with the drawstring -- not good knowing from past on the elastic on the waist band starts to wear out at least you can use the drawstrings to tie and keep your pants up. Now I have 2 brand new sweatpants that will either need alteration to add a drawstring!!!! Not happy - I should have just purchased some material and made them myself instead of paying good money for pants I will now have to fix. I won't be ordering any sweat pants in the future from LLBean!!!!!! Why mess up a good product!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Roger from Not the same I have been wearing these sweats for many years and loved them. I am wearing one of my older pairs right now. My current pairs were finally showing wear so my wife ordered me two new pairs for Christmas. I tried them on today and have to say that I am very disappointed to the point where I am returning them. The item ID on my old sweats is 254669 but the new ones are item ID 512250. They eliminated the draw string which was great for compensating for the usual stretch when you wear an elastic band. It also feels like they changed the rise from the crotch to the waist band. What used to be a great sweat pant fits no better than the cheaper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Betmar from Big disappointment!!! I have been well pleased with a pair of older Large tall sweat pants from L.L. Bean with a drawstring and Velcro close for the back pocket and no- fly that I use for working out in colder months of the the year. When I needed to replace some others I selected L.L.Bean again.. They fit alright when I tried them on prior to washing but, after washing they will not stay up even with just a wallet and keys in the pockets with only moderate activity. This long time L.L. Bean customer will look elsewhere for this type product and be more careful when choosing products in the future from L.L. Bean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by longtimecustomer from First disappointing purchase I went into my purchase history and attempted to reorder a few more pairs of sweatpants. The exact item is no longer sold. I ordered a few pairs of the ‘new’ sweatpants, and am completely disappointed. Sweatpants I ordered in 2017 were 100% cotton and had a drawstring and elasticity on the pants leg bottoms. They were great, completely different from the blend material, no drawstring open pants leg of the ‘new’ and much more expensive offerings. My first experience with a poor quality product from LL Bean. Please bring back the old 100% cotton drawstring sweats.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy from Unacceptable decline in quality!!! Husband has bought these for many many years. In fact he remembers when they added the ankle zippers years ago which he wasn't happy about. Now they have removed the drawstring which is a deal breaker. Having owned these for many years he knows the waistband elastic loses its elasticity over time so the drawstring is essential. He also carries his wallet and phone in his pockets and without the drawstring the pants wont stay up especially as they age. We will be returning these 3 pairs and likely will no longer be an LL Bean customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tea37pea from No leg zippers, waistband drawstring I have bought these sweat pants several times in the past and found them entirely satisfactor (with drawstring an bottom zippers)y. These pants have no waistband drawstring and tend to slide down when pockets are empty; add a phone and/or wallet and they're on their way to the floor. No bottom zippers means I have to take my sneakers off when putting them on/taking them off. Serious drop in quality. Am returning for refund. DON"T buy this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LaurelLLBeanShopper from Jogger type cut I was hoping these would be like the traditional Athletic Sweatpants that LLBean offered for years but with the addition of a zipper. However, these had a different shape--more of a jogger pant style than sweatpants. They fit oddly and were extremely unflattering. I ordered a size larger for my husband but will have to see if they look ok. I don't have much hope since joggers only look good on tall, thin men. Why did LLBean stop carring their very successful "athletic sweats" for these? These pants are no longer the terrific Athletic Sweats, they are more of a jogger cut.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GEM1 from Item have changed I’ve purchased these men’s athletic sweatpants many times in the past this purchase I noticed they did away with the drawstring and the zippers on the pants legs not good knowing from past on the elastic on the waist band starts to wear out at least you can use the drawstrings to tie and keep your pants up. Now I have 2 brand new sweatpants knowing that in a few months there going to fall off my waist unless I bring them to a Tailor and add the drawstring could do without the zipper on the bottom of the pants leg
