Lighter weight and tighter
I have several pairs of the taboose pants from years past and wear them often. The new pair is of lighter material and a bit tighter. Just a little harder to get on. The khaki color is better than the color of the older pants. All in all I still like these pants.
hard to put on
The pants, alas, were so hard to put on that I had to return them. They're like rompers, with a closed circle at the waist, not like real pants that open above the fly. I liked the fabric and the drawstring, but putting them on was a deal breaker.
I LOVE THESE PANTS. I WISH YOU WOULD OFFER MORE OF A VARIETY OF COLORS. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE MORE CHOICES. I MISS THE DEEP NAVY BLUE, THE REDS, THE FATIGUE COLORS. ANY CHANCE FOR MORE COLORS IN THE FUTURE?
Very wrinkled item after first wash/dry.

good fit, material is the desired weight
Comfort casual. Improved fit, but could still be more tapered. Relaxed fit, though, for those who like it. The new slate grey is a bit light, might fade to be too light after several washings, but these pants are a favorite I'd recommend and would buy again.
Pants are not the same as before
My husband has worn the Taboose pants since 2002. We never feared ordering the next pants when it was time. For a year now, the pants are entirely different. the stride is shorter, tighter, pockets are very shallow and even the material seems to be a lighter weight and not as durable. The waistband elastic is floppy and too loose! Please go back to the original source who made these pants. I have sent some back several times hoping for a good fit but they are not the quality we had! Very disappointed!
There has been a change in quality
A few years ago I purchased a pair of Taboose shorts. I was so impressed with the quality and comfort of the shorts I bought three more pairs and a couple of pairs of Taboose Pants. I wore out the pants and a pair of the shorts after about three years use, so a purchased another pair of the pants and a pair of the shorts. Both the pants and the shorts were no where the quality of my previous purchases. The pockets are not as deep as the older product, the fit in the legs is tighter. My current purchase was a 30 inch length (as were my first purchases a number of years ago) they came over 32 inches in length and I had to have them shortened. All in all, I am very dissatisfied with my current purchase of both the pants and the shorts.
The British khaki is more green. I love the pants I've worn for years, but please bring back the putty color.
