Women’s Back Beauty™ Cargo Pant is rated out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SquirrelGirl from Comfortable yet stylish pant that works almost anywhere I'm a big fan of the Back Beauty line of pants. The cargo version has served me well across both casual/sporty settings, as well as dressier functions paired with a nice sweater, tunic, or jacket.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LMLNN from Not what I expected The quality of the pant is good and the function of them, However the bottom of the pant around the calf is huge, I have size 17 inch calves and wear wide calf boots and they were very loose and the pant itself runs slightly big and long but mostly the bottom portion. I am 5'4 and wear a size 10 and am 176 lbs with large legs and wide hips and the size large fit comfortably but on the big side, If I lost just 5lbs they would be too big to wear. The length went past my foot to the floor. Also if you are not absolutely sure an item will fit be careful because you have to pay shipping to return the product. I have not come across a company that does this, especially one with items this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alithia from Comfortable, Versatile Pants These are form fitting, comfortable pants. They do not suck the life out of my body by being too tight (like a lot of pants can be, particularly if you have bigger thighs). Were breathable enough for hiking, and didn't collect all my dog's hair like other pants do. True to size. Washed without shrinkage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LBHS from Great Pants! Lightweight and great fit. The bottoms flair a bit more than I like but over all they are a good fit. I am 5'7'' and 140. I ordered a small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mlee from Very Comfortable These pants are extremely comfortable. They move with you but aren't too tight. I don't like high or mid rise pants very much, but with the smooth elastic top on these pants I can easily roll them down at the waist without anyone knowing and without hindering my comfort in them. I am 5'3" and the regular length was way too long; I had to hem them and took off 3 inches. However, that was an easy fix and well worth doing for these pants. They have quickly become my "go to" pants for everyday wear, so much so that I just bought 2 more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ifixu from Nice cargo I'm a therapist and have been wear the baby beauty pants for about 3 yrs. I've lost weight recently and thought I was buying the right size for me.... they are slightly too big but I think it may be the cut of the pants. I'm five six and these are long a pool around the ankles but the pants themselves are top notch. Always a great quality rugged yet smooth look and function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BMaines from Perfect These are the best all purpose pants ever! I can wear them for dress or casual. I had an order version from a few years ago that were my go to pants. I researched and found this updated version. There is an addition pocket that was added. They can be worn throughout all seasons. All I can say is “Perfect”!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KYCatsfan from Love these pants! I do size up from my usual pant size, but only because I don't like a tight fitting pant around my hips. So I had to make adjustments around the waist. Then it was a great fit for me. They are so comfortable for working out in or can dress up a little for a nice casual look. Have purchased several pair now. One thing I would like to see Columbia do with more of their pants is the higher waist for us older people who have a few flaws to cover in the middrift area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EskieAgility from Great pants for running agility with my dog I love these pants. They do run a little small in the legs. I normally wear a size 6 or small but in these pants needed a medium. They are great because dog hair does not stick to them. I will definitely purchase these pants again

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenTraveller from perfect travel wear These pants have everything. All kinds of stretch, yet look stylish. Perfect pocket for my phone, and another zip close pocket for my passport or credit cards. The waistband is comfortable, with no zipper or belt to bind your middle. I just bought my third pair, and have them in both black and blue. I seriously love these pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ker925 from THE BEST! These pants are premium! I would rate them perfect except for the Velcro close pocket. Perfection would be if both pockets were zippers. I have worn them hiking, everyday on an Alaskan cruise and also to work (in a school). Absolutely LOVE them. Wish there were more colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CountryGirl2 from Love Cargo Pants I love these pants, but I'm 5'4" and they are just a little bit too long if I'm wearing flat shoes as they seem to only be available in Regular length. They are for casual wear only with the pocket sitting crossways and the seams down the leg. They are super comfy with the stretch in them and have that subtle cargo look about them ... (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by BLoJ from great cargo pants These cargoes are perfect for hiking or outdoor activities. They feel lightweight, yet are perfect for changing weather conditions and climates. I especially like the zip cargo pocket on one side and another on the opposite that has a velcro closure. ( I'd prefer another zip or a snap, but it serves the purpose- I avoided a cross body bag.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by MFM9 from Great fit but fabric flaws The fit on these pants can't be beat. I now have three pairs because they are the perfect pants for either casual or work situations. As another reviewer mentioned, though, there are some serious flaws in the fabric. Each pair has permanently crinkled/shriveled in the exact same spots - below or to the side of the knee area. I'm not sure how this happened since I only wash them in cold water and hang dry them (even though the instructions say regular washing/drying is okay.) Since I'm the only one who really notices it, and it doesn't affect the fit, I've put up with it. However, this is something that really needs to be looked into by the fabric designers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CozyWarm from Gave Me Compliments! The first day I wore my pants, two people complimented me on my new pants. They have very nice lines and are very well made. The color Grill is kind of a grey, kind of a brown so will blend nicely with a variety of tops. The cargo pocket is subtle enough that these can be worn in more than a casual environment. I’ll buy another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BuckeyeLadyHiker from Business casual or on the trail The fabric is substantial and there are two pockts- one zip close and one velcro. The pants are nice enough to wear to a business casual work environment and sturdy enough for a day hike. I am 5'5" and 150 lbs. and size 12 is comfortable. The length is okay with a shoe with some heel but would be too long with flats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SheilaC from Great traveling pants These pants (I bought them in 2 colors) are very comfortable. The pockets are a great help. As is the fast drying quality, so I can wash them out on a trip and they’ll dry overnight. Please, please offer them in petite sizes. The regulars are made for tall women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dori from Trimming and sleek! Love these pants. Very comfortable and slenderizing. Seems a little snug while putting on but fit absolutely to-scale when wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Booher from Love!!! These are awesome. I wear them for work, travel, and hiking with all styles of shoes. I only put that they run a little small because almost all extra smalls are too big & these fit me perfect. I’m 5’0”, 100 lbs, but also curvy. They are too long, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ree22 from Comfortable and movable pants I read reviews online before ordering these. The other Columbia pants that I've bought are 10's or large, but would say that this pant definitely runs tight. I'm a cyclist, & maybe it's my thighs that make it fit tighter, but would recommend the large to anyone in between. Most of the travel pants seem to have a drawstring to tighten, these pants fit well without that extra piece. Like the look & option of boot leg or straight. As usual, return was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HoosierHuntress from Excellent pants Wore these pants on a 5 day backcountry hike in CO in June. Performed great! Comfortable, move with you. Weather was warm during the day, and cool at night. These pants were the perfect weight for both. They also did a great job of repelling water. The regular is a tad long. I'm 5'5" and curvy, bought Large reg length and had to hem them a bit. Could've tried the short length but was afraid they'd be too short. Overall a great fit! Just bought a second pair. Nice enough to wear out and not just hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurissa from Excellent Hiking/ Active Pants I love, love, love these cargo pants! Unfortunately, I bought them too big and need to exchange them for a smaller size. I'm a size 6/8 (with large hips) and I bought a medium- I will be exchanging for a small. They have awesome breath-ability, keep their shape, water and stain resistant, and they make your butt look good! Cargo pockets stretch and hold a camera, phone, chapstick, and ID/ credit cards. Awesome pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnK from Perfect Camino Pants I love these pants! I wore them everyday for a month while hiking Camino Portugal. They always looked great even though I only got to wash them a few times in a sink. I did rinse them from the knees down every few days. The pull on waistband was ideal when wearing a backpack, the last thing I wanted was a zipper/button along with the hip belt around my middle. I will be getting more of these! I am 5'5" about 125lb, size small fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cinder from very comfy pants love these pants. wide waistband is comfortable, not binding. Im 5'8" 137lb I ordered the medium, they fit but are a little loose, I cant put my cellphone in the side pocket because it will pull my pants down on my hip ( I should mention I dont have much curves so things slide off easily) I will order another pair in black but get a size small this time. Keeping the mediums because I like them so much, the length is perfect on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smayflow from Love These Pants! Wow, loved these hiking pants so much, I immediately bought another pair in the grill color! They fit like a glove, and are even long enough, although I'm 5'8". I'm a large, or 12, with lots of curves (bigger hips, thighs, and rear end) and these pants are so flattering and comfortable! I plan on buying more Columbia hiking pants! I wish these Back Beauty Cargo pants came in more colors though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patsario49 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.
