Women’s Back Beauty™ Straight Leg Pant is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Black Beauty straight leg pant. The fabric and make was really good but the fit was totally unflattering on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 from Accomplish your mission My wife absolutely loves these pants so much, she had to by 3 more. Quality, professional made and she wears them to work. To go out on a date. Or she even exercises with them. I recommend to the max.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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 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 3 out of 5 by from Nice pair of pants I have the black beauty shorts in an 8 they fit perfectly but the pants run small, too snug for my liking so I returned the size 8

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looking Good I like these pants and they look a bit dressier than the skinny leg version but don't fit me quite as well. They're a little short in the rise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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 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 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 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.
Date published: 2015-05-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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.
Date published: 2015-05-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable pants The small was too tight in the waist band and the medium is baggy. I kept the medium. The legs are a slightly too large but I love the comfort!
Date published: 2014-12-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pant I was thrilled on the fit and smoothness the material gave to my skin. Wish it was more thermal for wintertime. Ordered another go-to pair. Can be dressed up due to nice fabric.
Date published: 2014-11-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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 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 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.
Date published: 2014-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them!! The only thing I would change would be the color selection - what about navy blue or a deep green?? The gravel is great - I'm just a color girl!! Oh, the pocket is only good for a credit card and drivers license, a small set of key and one chap stick. Enough to get you from point A to point B but if you have a kiddo your taking a small bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These pants are so comfortable. I now have two pair and plan to get another. They don't lose their shape while being worn and they wash up beautifully. Very nice looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I now have two pairs. Fabric is light weight and breathable. Great for hiking, running, working out, or just hanging out. So comfortable, regardless of what I am doing. Also, love the fit - very flattering. So nice to find something that is functional for an active life style yet still so flattering. They have become my favorite pants, even when just chilling at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Any time pants These pants are fabulous you can dress up or down and great for travel especially if you travel on business light enough you can wash out and hang dry! Very comfortable I'm going to get another pair ! Also the skinnys are very versatile looks great with shoes and boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants ever!! Really. Seriously, these are the best pants I have ever worn. The fit is like the cloth was cut for me personally and sized perfectly. The even better part is the fabric; it always looks like it just was laundered. Great for everyday and fabulous for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clothes that fit! Columbia petite line is highly recommended. Proportioned well, comfortable yet not baggie, functional and sporty style. Reasonably priced for the quality.
Date published: 2013-08-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me These pants are more like a yoga pant. A little wide in the leg and a little short for my tall frame (I am 5'9"). I like the fit in the hips. If the pants were a little more fitted and longer I would have really liked them.
Date published: 2013-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pants They were exactly as described. Great fit and quality. I wish they were available in more colors. Love these pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday pants These pants run a bit large for a size medium. There are no side pockets, but there is a small pocket on the side near the knee. Overall, good quality.
Date published: 2013-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need more stars! I was a bit skeptical when I bought these for a 6-week trip to France but they have turned out to be the absolute best pants - ever! I am tall (5'6") and slim (130) so the M fit perfectly - not always true for size M as my hips and thighs are slim. These are great pants for travel and everyday. They fold up into a very small packable space, do not wrinkle, are stain repellant, shed water, and even after 8+ hr plane rides still look fresh. I love these pants and wish they were available in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, durable and flattering. Comfortable, durable and flattering. What more could you want in an exercise/outdoor pant. It is hard to find pants that your not always pulling up or re tieing. I give these pants a five.
Date published: 2013-05-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy yet defining I wear these in the Mojave Desert hiking and up in the Sierra San Pedro de martir mountains in Baja California. From hot to cold, they are the most comfortable pants I own . I'm a larger size but they are very flattering to your figure. I often need to transition from the field to the office, and these pants also look smart in meetings/at the airport.
Date published: 2013-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice walking pants I like these, they're perfect for walking, a little more thought out than just yoga pants. I have a rounder-than-average butt and they fit my butt just fine. Yay... I like the mini pocket on the thigh but I would prefer two zippered hand pockets instead or in addition to that one pocket (hey designers, take notice). The inseam is a little short compared to other brands, if you are tall, go ahead and order the long version.
Date published: 2013-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around town pant. This pant has a classic fit that can be worn anywhere. I have worn them to work as well as bike riding and walking. Wonderful material that needs little or no ironing. I will buy again!
Date published: 2013-02-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look, great comfort I agree with other reviewers that these pants flatter the rear end as advertised and also that the crotch length is a bit shallow. I will be wearing these with tunic tops or other loose-fitting yoga tops, so that is not such a big problem for me. The fabric definitely doesn't bag or tug or snab - so far at least.
Date published: 2013-02-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The quality is really good. Quality is good and comfortable while those petite ladies should pay more attention to the length in order to fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as expected I received these pants, and in trying them on they seemed OK. When I wore them they "pooched" over the thigh/hip region. Since I wore them I can't return, but not happy with product.
