To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love these pants! They sit higher up on the waist and stay up! It has been a struggle to find an outdoor pant for women with some junk in the trunk... every other pant I ordered would be too tight in the derrière and way to loose around the waistline! This pant is not the case! It fits perfectly! I am a size 12 pant and ordered the large and I love the fit... it is snug but doesn’t look too tight! Super comfortable and I love the higher waist on these pants! I own 2 other Columbia back beauty pants and I HATED how low the pants would sit! This is a wonderful addition to Columbia’s Clothing collection and I hope they never discontinue this pant! This is a game changer for me and something I can wear outdoors or for travel! Just bought another pair after trying these on!
Other than being about two inches too long (and I’m a little over 5’7”), they fit well and will serve their purpose as quick dry travel and hiking pants. They are a little baggier than I would like, but I love that they are pull-on and have zippered pockets, large enough for a cell phone, keys, and a small wallet.
Beautifully made, flexible to move in, with nice, deep pockets and oh, so comfortable. The black is deep and rich and can be worn nearly anywhere. No button fly or zipper in this model, but there is a tie in case the elastic yoga-type waist is too loose. This is a good thing, as there is not a lot of consistency in the S-M-L sizing among different Columbia pants. Some fit so slim that my usual medium doesn't work for me. Keeping that in mind, I ordered these in the large, and they're much too big. Large, I think, in the Back Beauty Ii Bootcut Pant, fits more like a US women's 12-14. So when ordering these pants, please keep in mind that they tend to be more forgiving than some styles, so you probably will NOT want to size up.
These are beautifully made mid weight pants that can be used in any number of ways — activewear, casual, even business casual. The fabric is tightly woven but not stretchy like tights or yoga pants, and the waist is comfortably high, disguising small imperfections. These are pull ones, with a drawstring at the waist for size adjustment. The side slash pockets are zippered with disappearing nylon zipper, and are good sized. On me, at 5’4”, this boot length style is way too long and floppy at the ankle, so I’m limited in how I’ll wear them. Otherwise, good quality pants.
What's better than a pair of black pants with subtle midriff bulge control that also fit well enough to make your bottom still look cute? There's a little lace tie in the front in case you do need to tighten these, but otherwise, just climb into them and you're good to go. Very stretchy and comfortable, but still look great. They aren't as tight as yoga pants, so you could get away with wearing them to work with a nice top. These go into the category of wardrobe must haves.
