Women’s Back Beauty™ Skinny Pant is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but strange fit Comfortable pants, seem to be well made. I am 5'10", 130 lbs, usually 2-4, ordered S and XS. I could not get the right fit - too tight around the legs and loose around the waist (and they were a bit short). (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable I absolutely love these pants. They are so comfortable and fit exactly how I needed them too. I am 5'4, 135 lbs and have a muscular build with a bigger butt and smaller waist and they fit perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hiking pants ever! I have been searching high and low for a fantastic pair of hiking pants. For someone with a large backend and thick thighs, I spend a good majority of my time hiking adjusting my pants. Either they ride up, stretch out too much and fall down, or are just down right uncomfortable. I wish I would have found these pants sooner because they are absolutely amazing. So comfortable, never need adjusting and wash up very nicely! I will be buying more of these! Well done Columbia! I’m 5’3 and 158 pounds. The regular medium fit me perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants for casual or work I bought these pants for casual wear. They fit perfect and are so comfortable. They are sharp enough to wear to work as well. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I love these pants - have been wearing them for the past 3 years -have several pairs. The quality is excellent - no wrinkling which is perfect for travel. They are so comfortable and look great. The waistband does stretch out (consider I wear these pants most days) so I ordered more pairs so I can continue wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAB pant! These are absolutely my most favorite pants. The fit is extremely flattering without being skin tight like a legging. Construction is very good quality and they wash and wear forever. Excellent for travelling, both wearing on the plane and easy care and packing. I absolutely LOVE these pants. Please do not stop making them!!!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile I bought these for traveling, but find myself wearing them for everyday life and outdoor activities quite a lot. I love the fabric weight and the high rise at the back. I wear them on a plane to sleep and then these become my "dressy" pant to wear with fancy shoes and top in the evenings for a 3-5 star restaurant. I can wash them at night in the hotel room and they are dry the next day. They ARE for more curvy figures, and I don't have hips, but they are still great with my tunics and Classic shirts including the Columbia Silver Ridge Shirts. I like that they aren't tight and form to the leg. I have a black pair and I like the softer Noturnal color. Great design!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waiting for Long length!!! I have the capris and love the great style and function. They are a sports pant that can be dressed up! The best part is that when I travel I can just wash them in the sink ... they dry quickly and go back on looking great!!! My only problem is that you don't offer this in a long style pant! I am 5'8" and the regular just aren't long enough. Please please ..... I see a lot of other comments saying the same thing - I think there is a definite demand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them, but short I recently bought my first pair, and I wore them to work. I love everything about them except the leg length. I am 5'6 1/2", and they are definitely "ankle" pants on me. That is ok, fashion-wise, but I'd be more comfortable if they were 32" instead of 30". I'm giving consideration to having them shortened to make capris. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best travel pants ever! I have 2 pairs, my first pair is still going strong after 3 yrs of use. So comfy for traveling, and very flattering fit. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Time Favourite Pants Absolutely love these pants! They are simple, classic, flattering, comfortable and incredibly versatile. I wear these pants everywhere: walking, cycling, shopping, work, dining out, travel, camping, backpacking, horseback riding, working out, scrambling.... I have them in two sizes, small for most of the time and medium so I can wear long johns or tights under them when it gets cooler. The simple style makes these pants super versatile and so easy to dress them up or down. The waist band is flattering, comfortable and fantastic for wearing under a hip belt when backpacking (no buttons, zippers or belt loops to chafe). The stretchiness makes them super pants for adventure activities that require mobility. Perfect pant for travel, they pack down to almost nothing and being so versatile they are the only pair I pack. Only available in black, this is my one complaint. More colours please, especially something lighter and suitable to warm, summery weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't go wrong with Back Beauty Just love the back beauty pants, they fit and feel great! I bought a small in the skinny leg in the short length, they fit perfect. Finally pants that I don't have to have shortened, I'm 5 ft and they are the perfect length. I also love how the back stays in place. Way to go Columbia, you did it again!
