Women’s Back Beauty™ Boot Cut Pant is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pants I have worn Columbia anytime pants for over ten years. It was time for a new pair and I tried this style. This is a pull-on version of the anytime pants. I love them!! The pants fit beautifully and do not gap in the rear. I love how smooth they look under tees. I work out in them and wear all day and they remain comfortable. I am 5ft 3in and 125lbs for reference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too small I loved the fabric and style of these pants. Disappointed in the sizing as I normally wear an xs and these were just a little bit too tight on the waist. I have numerous pairs of Columbia pants and unfortunately the sizing varies from style to style. I will be returning hopefully to the outlet for an exchange. I will not be ordering online anymore due to inconsistent sizing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable These pants are comfortable but not what I consider "hiking" pants. They are designed like yoga/workout pants. Elastic waist, stretchy fabric, slight flair at pant leg. They are form fitting, one small zip pocket on left thigh. I wear them as dress pants. Color is more of a dark gray, not a true black. I suppose you could hike in them but I prefer more pockets, less stretchy fabric preferably with zip off pant legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Work and Play I travel quite a bit for work and was on the hunt for some "fool-me business casual pants" (i.e. ones that I would be extremely comfy in while on an airplane, but that I could get off that airplane and walk right into a business meeting!) These pants are beyond perfect! Pairing them with a pair of heels and the right top/blazer (to cover the Columbia wording on the backside) tricks everyone into thinking I'm wearing business casual clothes; yet I'm as comfy as when I'm lounging at home in my couch. They are perfect for my work travel needs as well as my active lifestyle. LOVE these pants. I'm so glad I found them! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice pants, but fit can be tricky I sized up to a medium because I like looser waistbands--I am 5'1" (had to shorten the hem 5" on the regular inseam 'cuz they ran out of short), 110 pounds, 30" at natural waist, 34" at hips. I love the waistband--it is so comfy and doesn't gape or dip at the back, and doesn't require wearing a belt, but the side seams have a weird bump of extra material at the lower hip area where someone's butt/hips might fill it out--I couldn't tell if this was a mistake (stretchy material can be tricky to sew without buckling) or if it was just designed to fit a much curvier body (more likely). On me, it sort of looks like a weird version of jodhpur pants--but just on the one side, because the pocket side seemed much smoother/less noticeable. I was able to smooth it out thanks to my trusty sewing machine, but other folks may want to size down to fill the stretchiness. The material is very nice and has a good heft to it; I would agree that the warmth/thickness of the material suits better for cooler weather (but will also protect you on sunny days with its UPF 50 rating). The black-colored pants look like nice trousers and don't make the swishing noise; I could easily wear these to work with a longer top to cover the waistband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to pants for business-casual work. These pants are listed for hiking but are great for a business-casual work environment. The size 12 fit is flattering on my 5'5", 145 lb. pear-shaped body and the fabric is substantial. I wear them with a 1.5" heel and the length is good with my 31" inseam. There is just one pocket and it is on the thigh. Because of this, I would probably not wear them hiking. I have the pants in black and grey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to hiking pants I hike a few times a week and these are my go-to pants. I own 4-5 pairs. I tried many, many models and these are the only ones that fit my curves. They feel like yoga pants - no zippers, pockets, buttons... Just smooth elastic band at the waist. Very grateful to Columbia for making these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pants Great pants IF you read and order accordingly to their size chart (ordered the wrong size first and had to reorder and send a pair back). Love the color. Pictures are very true to the actual color you receive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants for Travel I had borrowed these pants from a friend for a trip I took to Italy. They are light weight and very comfortable. Perfect for travel. Just had to have a pair of my own so I ordered a pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and figure flattering pants Great for travel and everyday use also. The best part is that these pants are extremely comfortable and still look great on my figure. I love the Omni-shade UPF 50 sun protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good All-Round Pant I bought size XS of these in store and am pleasantly surprised how much I like them after usage. I am 5'5" and 112lbs (small hipped) and they fit perfectly. Material is nice, not noisy and I do not sweat in these unlike my Salomon hiking pants. Extremely comfortable and waist does not dig. I could see wearing these hiking or dressing up as they have 1 minimalist pocket. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!!!! Love these! They make you look slimmer, love the cut and material! These are a must in your wardrobe! You can go from hiking to dressing them up. I have nothing negative to say just love these! I bought the bootcut in short, yes a hair long for my 5ft frame, but belive me their worth it@

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent athletic pants I love these pants and look forward to wearing them every weekend! They are not the typical legging material. Hard to describe the the texture. The outside are more of a waterproof material. The inside are soft and comfortable. They are thinner pants with tummy support that look great on. They are figure flattering. They look dressier than leggings and could possibly be dressed up with the right outfit. Highly recommend. I am 5’5 130 pounds. I don’t like my pants tight. These are not baggy but form fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back Beauty is the Best! These are my new favorite pants! They dress up and/or you can just wear tennis shoes with them. They are comfortable. I highly recommend them! I now have 4 pairs of them. They are perfect for my line of work. I can run, sit and stretch with the kids then I can throw on a nice shoe the end of the day to dress up a little.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from flexible pants The pants are a little long for my 5'2" height however, they are really comfortable and won't drag if you wear a hiking boot.
Date published: 2018-02-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfy I have been wearing this product for about 2 years now and I cannot tell you how comfortable these pants are . You can even dress them up and they look casual enough to wear to work. I have a belly and the cut on the waistline covers the look of the belly because it is in a V shape and they make you look like you have very little belly and they make you look slim. You don't even feel like your wearing anything because they are so comfortable. I am on my second pair and highly recommend them...love them to pieces (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back Beauty Pant I fell in love with the back beauty capris first, and now I love the boot cut pant! They are super functional and great for travelling. They are my go-to hiking pant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants EVER I can't say enough about these pants. From the very first time I tried them on, I was in love. I went back and got two other colors and literally wear them interchangeably every day to work. They're comfortable, sporty for play days but not too sporty that they can't be worn to work. I couldn't stop talking about them which influenced my co-worker to buy two pairs herself and now she lives in them too. Not too thick and not too light, washes excellently, dries quickly. Get these pants and it'll be one of your best purchases, ever! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fabric, a little too low waist I like the fabric of the product very much, it feels great and is very practical (with the side pocket). Unfortunately it runs smaller than the other pants that I have bought at Columbia (anytime outdoor boot cut pant) and it seems a little too low on the waist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove!~ These pants are lightweight and very comfortable! They are easy to wear and comfortable to move in. I needed a "short" inseam and glad I found these. Side pocket is functionable and they fit like a glove. Glad I found them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where anywhere pant! these are the best pants ever!!! PLEASE restock the SHORT lengths in both the skinny leg and boot cut.....I would like to buy more - you can go ANYWHERE with these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wore them to work! I live in South Florida, so finding a pair of Black pants that look good enough for work, but are light weight enough for the heat, is wonderful. I love the fabric and the fit was almost perfect (The waist band just made it - any tighter would have looked bad) I usually wear an 8 in pants, but I have a bit of a belly) I bought the medium. I will definitely buy another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive, durable, good fit I have had a pair of these for a year of hard wear and they still look great. I actually wear them for downhill skiing ! (with yoga pants underneath). Very hard to find ski pants with the 'short' sizing . Fit is also very flattering around the derriere! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice I purchased these pants to wear on photoshoots I was doing for a boat line so that I would have some quick drying pants to wear. They are so comfortable, stylish and really do dry fast. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely flattering pant Originally bought a small (I'm 5' tall, athletic build in butt and thighs, hips are 37"' waist is 28")' but found the small to be too tight (caused Camel toe), so traded for a medium which is perfect! If u have skinny legs and my size then the small should work, but if you are anthletic build you may want the medium for a better fit. The fabric is high quality, has nice compression and pant is so comfortable. Wearing to office job with long jackets that cover the butt and with tunics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! Love these pants-wear 'em for yoga, add a layer on top, and on to work! My sister, owner of a restaurant in northern NJ, can't get enough of these! Wears them every night for service with a pressed button down shirt. Classic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back Beauty Boot Cut love the fit and length. I'm an active 68 yr. old, 5 ft. 9 inches. Can't do skinny jeans or anything that is calf binding. These fit very well. Allow me full range of motion. Wash and hang dry in 2 hours, so great for travel. The quality of the fabric is very good. Getting a second pair for up-coming trip to New Zealand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these pants!! These pants are soooo comfortable! They look great for work but I can get away with wearing them on the weekend with a t-shirt. They can be dressed up or down depending on what you need. I'm just bummed that I don't fit into the small pair;) PERFECT inseam for us shorties!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite of all my Columbia pants LOVE THESE. I have two pairs of the back beauty pants (these and the cargo version) and I have to say, they're my favorite of all my Columbia pants (actually, of ALL my pants). The fit is similar to the anytime pant (also a fan) but I find the material is superior in that it washes much better and seems more resistant to pilling. These are slightly warmer than the anytime pant and I find I'm more inclined to wear them fall/spring and use the anytime pant in warmer temps. These are hard to wrinkle, they do well packed in luggage. I wear these to work (you can dress them up with a nicer top and look business casual for an office), but also on the trail or out running errands. Very versatile! I find on some of my Columbia pants the waist band tends to fold over a bit at the front, but this has not happened with these. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back Beauty Boot Cut Pant This is the best-fitting pair of pants I have ever purchased ( my second pair of these, actually). Most pants fit properly if you're standing, but if you bend over, they slide down , somewhat over your butt. Not the case here ! These are GREAT ! I'll be back to Columbia Sportswear, for sure ! it's the ideal way to shop - no traffic hassle, no searching for a parking space, sizing you can rely on - what's not to like !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absolute favorite pair of travel pants! I travel full time with my family (for almost 1000 days now) and Back Beauty Pants are what I carry in my suitcase. I own two pairs, a bootcut, and a straight leg and they look and perform better than any travel pant I've ever had, seriously.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these pants...but... I love these pants (I have 6 pair now) they are comfortable, fit well and are rain resistant. That being said, the "boot cut" is more bell shape and get in the way when I am going up and down hills...I step on the inside of the opposite leg and end up pulling my pants down. ( I have had both knees replaced so I have to side step on steep hills which I think contributes to the stepping on the hem issue) I would Love Love Love them if they were a little more sung in the area from the knee to the hem. They also seem to run a little long...no problem I can hem them up a bit, but for a person who all my life have had to wear pants that were a bit "too short" this seems a little odd but nothing I can't deal with.
Date published: 2016-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you can only pack one pair of pants A trip that includes an evening in the city and then three days of hiking/camping and luggage space is really tight...these are the pants you want. You get stretch without sag, you get stain and water resistant without a weird sheen, you get a flattering fit. OK, for a hiking pant you have to forego pockets. But for versatility and comfort, you can't beat the Back Beauty boot cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from **Most comfortable pants ever** I bought these not knowing if they were more yoga pants or dress pants but they are versatile enough for both. I can wear them with a t-shirt or a dress shirt and it looks good either way. I am a size 8/10 and the medium fits like a glove. Don't hesitate to buy these as they are now my new favorite pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pants Ever!! WOW! True to size. I put them on and I was amazed of how perfect these pants were overall!! I got the size Medium in Regular (I am 5'9" 134 lbs) length and they fit like a dream! The length seems nice and long which I really appreciate. Some other Columbia pants in regular length are not as long as these. Everything about them is perfect: the fit, feel, comfort, the soft non-restricting material, and the sleek smoothness they make me feel as good as they look because they hide imperfections. I highly recommend these pants!
Date published: 2016-10-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for work, play, and everything in between! I work in a professional environment with children. Which means I needed free range of motion, with a professional look, that clean up easily. These pants perfectly fit the ticket! Comfortable enough to wear for 12+hours and still look great. I live in Florida and these pants are thin enough to allow for flow of air so I don't overheat (even on the hottest summer day) without revealing what is underneath! Great for dancing and outdoor hiking as well. Highly recommend! However, the regular inseam is just a tad too long for me (I am 5'4").

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I have been looking for a good pair of hiking pants and am so happy to have found these! Everything I found just did not fit right and I knew I would not be comfortable hiking in them and then I ordered a few pairs of pants from Columbia. I loved three out of the four I ordered and am so happy that they fit well, are very comfortable and super light and easy to pack! These are more form fitting but still flattering- love them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Fit but not my style These pants were true to size and fit well but they were just not my style. Good in the thighs/legs but I wasn't comfortable with the waist/hip cut.
