Women's Performance Active Pants
Great fit, looks good
I'm 5'5" and the length is just right on the misses size. The fabric seems to be of high quality and the fit is good.

love these pants! great for everyday or even out to casual dinning
wish there were more of these. I am sure there were because I have crops in this material and with the same pockets. Bring them back in slate blue, black and dark grays. so good for quick trip to store or staying home or yard work. fit good and to size with great length.

I had to return these for a smaller size. They were pretty loose-fitting, which is not how I like workout pants to fit. I generally wear a large, but hoping the medium will work OK. Looks like the medium is backordered until July.

great fitting comfortable pants
Love these pants! Very comfortable and although I've only washed them twice there was no shrinkage or pilling. Really comfortable, yet look good enough to wear to work.

I LOVE THESE PANTS!!!
I was so disappointed when these were discontinued (last year?) I owned 5 pairs - 2 black, 2 gray, one black/white piping. I wore them EVERYWHERE, almost every day for 4 years. No pilling, kept their shape (even when I gained 20 lbs.) looked brand new. I would get compliments on them! With a nice top they were nice enough to go to a nice restaurant. Plus they were so comfy, not too hot/heavy, not too thin. I also had the capris (the old shorter length).
When I lost 75lbs. and the old size were falling off my hips, I finally bought one new pair this spring. Disappointed that they weren't available in tall (out of stock in my size.) I plan to buy several new pair in the fall. I'd buy the capris now if they were shorter!
Please please don't stop making these - they are the BEST pants ever, and they come in Tall (regular 30-1/2" isn't quite long enough, although at 34" I may need to hem them). More colors, shorter capris - that's my wish list!

Most comfortable pants ever.
Love, love, love these pants. They are so comfortable, and they don't wrinkle. The fit is excellent, and they look nice enough to wear to work. I live in them all weekend, because they're more comfortable than jeans. I lwear them hiking all of the time, because they're not confining. I wish they came in more colors.

These pants are the best. I've recently been disappointed with what I perceived as a decline in LE quality, but not with these! They are top quality, well made, fit well, wash beautifully and last! The fabric wicks moisture, making them wonderful for exercise or hot weather. I have the long version and ordered the capris for summer.
I've worn the pants with a nice top and couldn't distinguish them from my usual dressier pants. Great for travel!
Love the zip pocket for ID, etc when walking. Please make these forever!

Some differences, but still worth buying
I loved these Performance Active Pants. Bought three pairs in past couple of years and was glad LE just added another color, gray. This new pair is different, with the rise is almost 1/2" shorter (size Petite XS), thighs wider with more relaxed fit, and length is longer. The fabric is substantial though, and since the pants have always been so breathable and comfortable, I plan to keep these.

I love these pants -- I wear them for with just about anything because they don't look at all like "sports" gear, although they work fine for that too. I have both the full length and the capris, but be warned that the new, longer length capris are NOT flattering. I hope they bring back the shorter ones. These pants, long or short, are my "go to" pants year round. The black pair actually look like dress pants, with a nice sheen and excellent fit.. Only the little reflective white spot up near the waistband gives them away, and that doesn't show unless you're wearing a very short top. The material is also great -- not too thin, so it holds you in just right -- not tight or uncomfortable at all. I love the thick waist band because it holds in my stomach! I've had several pairs of these pants over the years, and they literally do not wear out unless you're climbing over rocks or something.. The grey version is not as "figure forgiving" because it's a pretty light color, but the seaming shows up better in the grey, and it's flattering even if you're a bit larger in the hips. I really wish these came in some other colors, especially the capris since they're perfect for summer when lighter colors would be nice. My only complaint is that I wish the pants were a little bit longer so they could be worn with casual heels or platforms.

I have been looking a long time for the perfect work out pants. These are it. They fit my waist comfortably and hit at my natural waist. Another pair I had bought from a competitor were way too low and there was an ugly belly flab hanging over the waist. Yuck. These on the other hand are very attractive.
