Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pants These pants are super, very slim fitting with 2 large POCKETS. One pocket has a zipper the other velcro. Very flattering, just the right length. I bought XS which normally is fine but the thigh area is too tight. I have reordered size S and one of my lucky daughters will receive these pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING PANTS I am such a happy hiker! These pants are so comfortable and the zippered pockets are deep. I am 5'10", 150lbs and purchased size M. I usually worry about the length but these are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have a new favorite I own two of the Back Beauty Skinny pants which have been my favorites for quite a while now. But I seen these Back Beauty Cargo pants and had to order them. I absolutely love them! These are now my favorite! Love the sleek looking pockets on both sides of the leg pants. Now I have a place for my cell and ID when I go walking. The fabric is softer and more comfortable too. If you had another color I would definitely buy them. I am 5'3", 144 lbs and I ordered the Medium. Perfect fit, looks good and not tight. Only thing, I had to cut and hem them because I am short. Ordered a pair for my daughter as a gift. Hope she loves them as much as I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants I bought these for hiking, but I think they will be a great traveling pant. Sturdier than yoga pants and I love the material. I have gotten compliments when wearing the to the grocery store. They fit great with no muffin top. I got the small and I am 5'7" and #130.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These will be your favorites!! These pants fit true to size. They are soft, light weight, look amazing on. Can be dressed up or down! I am 5'9", 134 lbs and I ordered a medium. I am very pleased as the length is long. Gives a nice smooth and flattering look. Do not show pantylines. The waist band is awesome, is fashionable and hides imperfections. They are so comfy and are not constricting at all. My favorite pants now! I highly recommend these! Thanks Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, nice fitting This is a second pair of this style that I've bought. They are a bit higher rise than some of the other styles, so that is a plus. I'd like them a bit higher still so they don' t slide down with sitting. Material is a good weight, with enough stretch, maintains its shape well. Dressier looking than travel pants I've had in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has a great fit. I like that the rise is a little higher than the other Back Beauty pants. Also I like the larger pocket and a front seam. The fabric still looks unwrinkled after a 3 day weekend of travel on a plane and sightseeing.
