Super Pants,
February 6, 2013
By: PossumHall
from Redding, Calif
"I live in black pants and dislike jeans. I rarely buy pants through the mail, but these were too good a price to pass up. The best thing? They have pockets, so if I just need my keys and wallet to go walking with my friends, I have them. Fit is superb."

best casual pants ever!,

from Ashland, OR
"These pants are so comfortable, soft, cozy, warm, keep their shape better than most sweat-type pants. I want them in every color and plan to order the black ones. I can replace some very tired other sweats and these seem like they will last forever"

Would love more colors ~~!!,

"I got these pants in both colors, but would have bought more if they had been available. Red, navy, chocolate, winter white, would all have been nice choices. These pants are SO SOFT, which is important to me. I love the pockets in front, too. Can't say one bad thing about this Orvis product~~except I'd like to see you get in some RED ones for sure."

"When I tried on these slacks, I thought I had put on pajamas, they were so very comfortable! They are roomy, fit well, and look good. They also appear to be well-made. i am keeping them, and look forward to wearing them. They are a weight that can be worn into fall."

"These pants are amazingly comfortable. The fabric is delightfully soft, yet sturdy, forgiving and the drape is mind blowing. These pants make me look thinner for some reason, I get compliments and I enjoy that. I was expecting the dog hairs form all my doggies to stick to these pants like a magnet, but lo and behold they do not clump, just a few, which is magical. Thank you, Orvis for these pants, which are My Dream Pants! They feel like pajamas when I have them on, but they look far more sophisticated and proper. Love them!"

Explorer "lounge" pants,

"THese are quite warm, fuzzy, cozy and comfy... I would not wear the outdoors however, as they look more like pants for exporing the couch... Undecided if I will keep them."

Really Comfotable!,
July 19, 2012
By: puppies3
from Farminton Hills, MI
"I just love these pants! In fact I bought one pair and after wearing them,bought a second. They have pockets which I really like in casual pants and, they really look nice enough with a cute top to have a casual lunch out or hang out for the day reading in a favorite chair. They wash beautifully and dry without a wrinkle. But the big feature is they feel like you are wearing jammies! Now that's big in my book of casual wear. I find myself pulling these on more often than not. I was surprised that the knit was a little heavier than I expected. The only thing I wish is that they came in petite sizes because I had to have both pairs altered. Good job ,Orvis!"

So comfortable,

"Just the right warmth for Spring and Autumn, as well as chilly UK Summers.
Extremely comfortable but seat & knees do tend to bag a little with wear.

Comfortable, comfortable, comfortable,

"The knit explorer pants are wonderfully cozy and comfortable. They look good for traveling as well as at home. I wore them constantly for two weeks on a trip to northern Europe when it was rather chilly and windy as well as in Los Angeles when it was 70 degrees. The pants can be dressed up or down depending on tops and accessories. Their only drawback is that they do get a bit larger with constant wear (that is why 4 stars) but a wash and trip through the dryer remedies that. Confession: I like the pants so much I bought two extra pairs."

"Wow! What can I say except LOVE THEM, LOVE THEM, LOVE THEM!!! These trousers are simply perfect: soft fabric, well fitting, and ever so comfortable!!! You can dress them up or down. I've been wearing them (I have the Black ones) with fancier black flats and various Orvis three-quarter and long sleeve tops. I plan on buying another pair very soon!!! What a winner!!!"
