Women’s Back Beauty™ Straight Leg Pant is rated out of 5 by 69.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Snipgirl from Too snug The fabric on these pants is a nice weight with a comfortable stretch, but I don't like them compared to other Columbia pant styles. They were very small in the waist/hip, and less give in the waistband. Much lower rise and beware of camel toe. I did like the slightly fuller legs but was just too small/tight in the top, making them look silly. I'm keeping then in case I lose a little weight, but the Anyday Casual pull on pant was a much better style for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ainon from I LOVE IT!! My first pants from Columbia and it’s very comfortable, material is very good. I wore it at home and just put on my coat when it’s cold and off I go shopping. It will not be my first buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JeniJo from Not enough stretch in the waist band I ordered a size L because according to the sizing chart I was between a M & L, they would have fit great if the waist band would have stretched to go over my hips. As it was, I was unable to get the waist past my upper hip and chose to return them. The quality of the pant is great, they just don't seem to accommodate wider hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsC from Extremely comfortable These pants are so very comfortable. I owned two pair for a few years and ordered two more. We will be traveling to Ireland this summer and I wanted these for easy packing, washing, drying, and most importantly for the comfort while on the long plane ride and all the walking/hiking we plan to do. Having pants with no snaps, buttons, zippers or belt loops is fantastic! I have scoliosis and these pants fit my body perfectly--something I have extreme trouble in finding. I hope these pants will be available for many years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babs56 from Great fit and comfort Great pants for daily living, gym, and yoga. Very comfortable, and good quality. I am not a small fit, and have had problems finding good exercise wear. Feel very comfortable going to gym and yoga in these. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Limmershin from Lovely, but....NOT for active users, NOT for hiking The pants look and feel great indoors and around the city. BUT.....you wouldn't need the special waistband treatment to avoid "back gap" if you built pants whose waistband was at -- or even just CLOSER to - a real woman's actual waist. And women deserve pockets! The single zipped pocket on the thigh is so tiny as to be almost useless. It doesn't hold my phone, wallet or even a single granola bar. If you have a tiny keychain with one or two keys...maybe. At best, it holds a credit card or two. These are definitely not designed for active outdoor use - wear them to the mall or the yoga studio instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarlaSS from Love these pants. I loves these pants for travel and dress. I wish they would add the front pocket again that my first pair had above the knee. It was the right size for my passport and/or my cell phone. The fabric is soft to the touch and is able to be rolled up tightly for packing when traveling. I now own three pairs of this style of pants but this is my first pair in nocturnal. color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rgg1 from Nice pants but material issue The pants are awesome for water repel as they were worn during some heavy rain and kept me dry. I am 5-8 and they fit perfect but I would like a little longer. Disappointed with the material as after wearing about 2 weeks the material has shown some permanent stretching/puckering under the knees after normal wear.I am a nurse and love the repellency but I am not on my knees or climbing /hiking in these- very surprised the material may wear faster and may not be as durable as thought they should be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by smrjmd from A bit small Columbia doesn't seem very consistent with their sizing. I bought four pairs of pants (different styles) all in a size 10, and each one fit very differently. This was on the smaller size compared to the other three pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SEB1 from Bought 4 pairs - doesn't that say everything. These pants are super comfortable and practical as well as fashionable. They just pull-on but unlike other pull-on's they stay where they should and never slide down. All colours are attractive. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolg from Black Beauty stright leg pant These pants are wonderful & the fabric is amazing. I have 5 pair of this exact style and have worn them for many years as they are wash & wear with no maintenance required, and extremely comfortable. The one small criticism I would make is the legs are a bit wide, however the other option was the skinny style. I do recommend these pants to my friends & would recommend them to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sysan from Great pants except size varies with color First, I love these pants in Black. Great for hiking and travel. Dirt and water brush off easily. True to size and length (M-Reg). Unfortunately, at the same time I ordered the black, I ordered the same style and size in Nocturnal. They were 2 inches longer and the legs were an inch wider than the black. The black would get 5 stars, the nocturnal would get 3, hence the 4-star rating. Fabric and construction great in both, but sizing needs to be addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DMC68 from Back Beauty These are THE BEST all round pants ever. I wear them daily for work. Extremely comfortable and durable. You can dress them up for work and go straight to trail after work. Water repellant which comes in handy when you spill something on you or around small children. I cannot say enough great things about these. I am 5' 2" so I order the short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by casey from So Comfortable I use the pant for playing court games and find them so flexible and comfortable. I'm 5' 5" and weigh 165 and the XL fit perfect. The only fault is the zipper tends to catch my hand while using a racket on the court. Maybe a little larger seam to cover the zipper. I love these pants so much that I ordered multiple to cover my week in sports. They are light for packing a vacation, also. Love, love, love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smokeyandashes from great fabric & fit! I love the easy care & style of these pants. They are great for traveling - both for outdoor activities & going out to dinner. I have had 2 pairs of these for a few years and they still look like new. I now need a smaller size so I ordered this pair. My pants had a straight leg so I thought they were the same. The legs on these pants are fairly wide- almost boot cut like. I called Columbia and found out that my old pants were the skinny leg (even though they are not tight at all). So I returned these and ordered for the skinny leg pants.style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DazzleMe from Fabulous! Sizing runs True to size. Material terrific because is is very lightweight, breathable, stretches, non-binding in any way, hides imperfections, is moisture wicking, and "Repells all animal hairs" including farm animals! The medium regular length fits me well; tall 5'9" 134 lbs, (32-33" inseam). You can dress these up or down. These do not wrinkle! Washes and drys fast. I wash on delicate cycle and use low temperature on the dryer for a few minutes then lay them flat or hang up if needed. I love the seam hidden zip-pocket along the left outter leg. It is big enough for keys and/or credit card. A must for every woman's wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jynx from Perfect Travel Pants My favorite! I am 5'3", 134 lbs and the L regular fits me perfectly. These pants wash easily in a sink, and dry overnight with no wrinkles. Traveled all around Italy with these pants; exceptionally comfortable, virtually no weight. I use them for fishing, hiking, & travel. Will definitely be buying more. I only wish they had a zip pocket for a micro wallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shepaddles from Favourite pants - 3 years! The "Back Beauty" pants are my favourite light weight pants. I have them in long, capri and shorts lengths. Love the wide, smooth, flattering pull on style waist band. It's not bulky, fits beautifully under a hip belt of a back pack and is soo comfortable. The stretchy material is a great weight not too heavy, not too light and super comfortable. These pants are so versatile, they look and perform well in the back country and can be dressed up for a casual night out in town. Simple, elegant, practical, comfortable. Just wish they came in a lighter summery colour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by edaMOMe from These pants are the best! I purchased the shorts version of these pants about 10 months ago, and fell in love with them. When I found the pants, I was thrilled and bought them right away. They are extremely comfortable, but still have a nice polished look. I wore them for the first time to a tennis lesson, and they performed beautifully. I want to wear these pants everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindaR from New fave! From reading the reviews, I guess I have the new style with the different material. I love these so much that I ordered two more pairs in black (I have grill). I have two large dogs and the first time wearing them we went for a hike and then I gave them both a good brush. When I came inside I expected to have to change...not a dog hair anywhere! Also super comfy! I can wear them like yoga pants, or dress them up and they look great. I'm 5'4", 175 lbs and the L short fits perfectly! Also, no gaping in the back and they don't ride low either. Perfect for an active mom who likes to keep her undies to herself! Weird place for a pocket, but my phone fits in it (just) so it's handy when walking. Only complaint, the store employee told me the short sizes always go first...then get more of them! I went twice in two weeks and ended up having to order online and pay more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yoganana from More like a yoga pant I liked these pants but did not realize they had no pockets. They fit more like a yoga pant, comfortable but not what I needed. I always need to carry things for my dog, so I rated the function of this style as average. Overall, I like Columbia for outdoor clothing, so I still give the pants a good rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Burleighgirl from My "Go To" pant These are my new "go to" pant. They are sold out of my size or I would purchase a few more pairs. They are so comfortable. I wear them to walk the dog, hike the trails, gardening and around town errands. Switch out your top put on a pair of sandals and they are fine for a lunch date. They are easy to pack and care for. I am 5'7" and wear an 8 or 10 in jeans and the large/regular fits perfect. I REALLY hope they get more in stock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rush from This year's version is not as nicely done as a couple of years ago. I have this same pant that I purchased 2 or 3 years ago. I still like this version, but the fabric is thinner and it does indeed run small. My older pair will fit me even if I gain a few pounds. The new pair fits albeit a tiny bit snug and I could never wear them if I gained more than a pound or 2. I am 5' 5", 143 lbs and regularly wear a large. I bought large both times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SnowWhite from great hiking pants I have worn a version of these pants for about 7 years. This newer version is different in material and sizing but still works well for me. They are very durable and withstand things such as sliding on slick rock in Utah. I love that they pull on with no zipper. They are very flattering in the cut. However, they run a size small. I usually wear a L and had to return for an XL. i wear 12-14 pants normally. Regular length is great for me at 5'9".

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dee1941 from Material disappointment I ordered the same pants by this name a couple of years ago and since the name and description were the same, I expected the pants to be the same. The fabric is entirely different. Instead of the silky feeling fabric I'm used to, these are a slightly rough more crisp fabric. I don't like the "pocket" on the mid-leg either. Strange place for a pocket. The other problem for me is the low rise. I ordered XL so they wouldn't be skin tight, so although the previous pants this style are not tight, these are. Not happy, but I washed them so guess I'm stuck.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Socialmedic from Pilling I love everything about this pant, weight, snug fit, packability, dress up or down ability …. perfect for travel and athletic activities BUT I had not had them for more than a month when I noticed that they were pilling on the outer left leg. I do not know if I just got a dud pair but I expect, for 65$, a durable fabric that is going to last me more than one season and does not pill. For the fit, and I would call it body hugging in a nice way, I would like to have more than one pair but for the pilling I certainly am not going to pay full price for them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RiverDiva from Great Travel Pant I bought this pant for a trip to Europe and they will be great for dressing up or down. They are heavy and sturdy - no wrinkle worries, which is what I was after. They were a little wider at the ankle than I like. They run a little small, so you might try a size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLH1 from Very comfortable These pants are very comfortable for yoga and hiking. They stay looking nice all day long, day after day. It is really nice to be able to buy a "short" length so I don't have to hem the pants (I'm 5'2", size 4 Short).
