ABC Pant (Regular)
The Thigh is way too tight!
I have played hockey and trained that way my whole life. As a result I have a smaller waist (34") compared to my larger legs. I have heard so many good things about these pants from people who fit the 'slim fit' but also have heard so many times that these pants don't fit people with muscular legs.
I have tried them on multiple times hoping that I would find a pair that fits bigger but I have never been able to do this and therefore never been able to buy them.
Even with taking the advice of many by moving up a size to 36", where the waist fits perfectly, the legs are still too tight. There is a huge market for these among those in the hockey community who are limited by not being able to fit into the thigh. It would be great if the same ABC Pants could be made with the slimmer style, but slightly larger in the thigh to accommodate this group of people. I, for one, would have already bought a couple pairs by now.
Lululemon, please help!

Now I just need every color...
For the longest time I dreaded shopping for pants until I tried the ABC pant. They fit PERFECTLY. Not only that, they are extremely comfortable and look good for casual and classy occasions. Not too tight, not too loose, they stretch if needed.
I live in Texas, and yesterday it was 104 degrees. These pants are well ventilated and stand up very well to sweat. (Far better than any denim jeans).
Lets be honest, they are expensive. In the case of the ABC pant you really get what you pay for. To give a better idea of how awesome these really are, I plan on getting several pair in different colors.
P.s- These run a bit small. I'm a 32" waist and the 34 fit perfectly.

Great all around pant - misleading fit
I do really like these pants and I am up to three pair. They can be dressed up or down, you can pretty much run/bike/ do any physical activity in them and stay comfortable.
However, the waists are a few inches off. I normally wear a 32 in Hudson jeans, 33 in Bonobos, Hugo Boss, H&M, pretty much everything.
All of my ABC's are a 34 wait and there is NO room for let's say an afternoon chipotle burrito. The waist also has no stretch in them like the legs possess. Switching up to a 36, I swim in them, plus the leg is a lot wider.
An associate in a store even told me they hear this a lot, and a 35 would fit most people in my situation. I would wear mine more!
If you can find a waist you are comfortable in you will live in them!

Only pants I own
Unfortunately I've become a bit too accostomed to these pants that I now own 14 pairs and it's not kind on the wallet. However, I still have my first pair from last Spring and they still look great. These suckers are worth every $ as I can take a spill on my bike and be worry free that they won't rip at the seams. Luckily I haven't found a way to destroy a pair yet.

Jeans no more!
Denim jeans were my typical go-to casual comfortable staple until I discovered these pants.
These are more comfortable than jeans and have ultra versatility--dresses up well with a button-down, works with a tank top. I can roll/cuff them on a bike commute then roll them down wrinkle free.
As far as only doing 4 stars... Even though these pants run small, a 30 (I'm technically a 28) was just small enough for me to justify the purchase.
I like the technical gear but shorts and headbands are the only things I can currently wear.
Hopefully there will be smaller sizes(XS and 28s) to come...yogis/crossfitters/runners come in those sizes too. ?

ABC Pant (Regular)
why we made this
We designed these pants with all-day comfort and performance in mind - seriously, you're going to want to live in them. A wide paneled gusset and four-way stretch Warpstreme? fabric make these pants commute, travel and sweat ready. We get it, you're going places.

the BEST! Can I get a 6th star?
There is no other word to describe these trousers than: PERFECT.
Absolutely, positively, without a doubt my favourite LULU product. The most comfortable trouser I own.
They replaced khakis and jeans in my day-to-day. I wear them to work in a business casual environment (the LULU omega logo is barely noticeable in the darker styles).
I now own these is every colour (except 2 that I know of that I missed out on my size) and hope to buy more. I'v given away more than a few pairs of these to friends and converted them into ABC-believers. Get compliments on them often.
The fit is trim but definitely not skinny. The material gives a little over time, but a quick spin in the dryer on medium heat will tighten them back up.
Media pocket on left front perfectly fits an iPhone 6 (not the 6+, but why are you trying to jam that iPad mini mini in your pocket anyways?). Zippered pocket on rear right is great for stashing things securely.
Of note, I often tell people this is the ideal travel trouser. You look well put together (what's up with people looking like slobs in airports/on planes?) and it feels like you're not wearing anything at all at times.
NOTE: Definitely size up. I typically wear a 30-32 in jeans and slacks, but find the 34 to fit me best through the leg while leaving some extra room in the wast.
Do yourself a favor, go try these on. You'll never go back to ball crushing pants again.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, these are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn. They look like chinos, but stretch like athletic pants. With spacious pockets, a dedicated smart phone pocket, and a zipped wallet pocket, they are not only the most comfortable, but also some of the most functional pants I've ever worn.
They're a bit pricey, though I haven't regretted purchasing them. The sizing, however, is off. I'm a 34 waist, yet I need a 36 in the ABC. Looking at the other reviews, I see that I'm not the only one.

Love at first wear!
I was at the point where I hated having to wear casual pants as I could not find a pair that were comfortable. From the moment I tried on the ABC's my faith in wearing pants had been restored. The size is great in that they fit my waist, thighs and butt equally well and the length is also good.

four pairs later...
purchased two pairs of the a.b.c. pants on sale earlier this year. they are worn to work, internship, class, and on days off. the earth/khaki/tan colors best compliment the transition from office to trail. the flexibility of the material is something you have to wear in order to truly appreciate. hoping lululemon offers a longer inseam in the future
