I'm obsessed with these pants and have started buying them and the winter version as gifts. they're so comfortable and lightweight. The winter ones are fleece lined if you're looking for the extra warmth. 10/10 would recommend. I'm either a medium or small typically and opted for the medium for a looser fit, the smalls fit more like leggings.

I like these pants. I am 5'6" and 125 lbs and they fit comfortably. Plenty long enough. I don't love the material for winter, but great for spring, summer and fall. They can double as scrub pants for shure, more comfortable than scrubs too. I just get weirded out by quick dry material against my skin, I don't know why. I baught these because one of the reviews I read said, they are lightly lined with flease....lies!!! They are not lined at all.

The winter version of this pant is lined with fleece

Great Gift!

Soft and stretchable fabric make for a great leisure pant or active wear pant. Got these for my girlfriend and right off the bat I was very impressed with the textile used. Good quality and great fit.

These pants are really flexible and breathable and fit so well. I have a really small waist and often have trouble finding pants that are snugg enough around the waist but these are perfect and the elastic helps to make sure it can fit everyone. In comparison to the Backcountry winter pants they are tighter In comparison to the Backcountry on the go LIGHT pants they are a bit bigger. Despite the size difference in the three different pants I do love them all and find these ones to be the best all around. In the Image the pants from back to front are the Winter pant, the On the Go, and the On the Go LIGHT in the front - all pants are in the same size xxs

I LOVE these pants! The medium is just a touch loose in the waist band but they're not big enough to justify getting a small. I will have to use the ties to adjust the waist and make them tight enough. I'm hoping a trip through the washer helps with that. I got these pants in black. They are flattering, comfortable, and transition from casual to technical with ease. I want to wear them for everything! I am especially looking forward to wearing these to work, for travel, and on trail. I would love to see this pant in available more colors.

These are nice and stretchy and quick drying! My measurements are 27.5" waist and 36" hip. My hips are actually pretty narrow (high hip measurement is 30"), so the waist band is a tad large on me but that is how most pants fit me when the waist band sits just above the hip (which is why I say they fit true to size). I just tie the waist tight and they stay put. I like the stretchy tie, because when tied tight, it doesn’t cut into you. I’m 5'2" so these are a little long on me for joggers, but they don’t look bunched at the bottom. I've worn these running, hiking, climbing, and lifting. They worked great for every activity!

These Pants are so soft and comfortable for a long day in a car or plane. The pants are also great to slip on for a day on the town and dressy enough to wear out to dinner. I struggle for a good fit and these are perfect in all areas on me. The tie waist is great to help provide a good fit that i struggle with.

I love these pants, so comfy and breathable. Super lightweight and easy to move around in. Only qualm is they run a little smaller than expected. I’m usually a women’s medium in similar style pants and they are a little snugger/shorter than I prefer. I still wear them often but would size up if ordered again. For reference, I am 5’9 and 160lbs.

To start, I was given these pants. And they are the best. I'm struggling to not wear them every day. I'm 5'9" and they fall at my ankle with just enough slack that lounging, hiking or even a gentle flow yoga practice are all comfortable activities. The light fleece-lining is also a great detail. It's cozy yet not overly warm. When I put my hands in the front pockets it covers up to my wrists and the most I'd keep in them would be lip balm or my phone. I could maybe keep tissues in the back pocket for hiking. No complaints though with these.

So much more comfy than I expected!

So first let me be clear, I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my own opinion. I was very skeptical of these pants when I first got them. In true Outdoor brand fashion, the XL looked a bit small, especially in the hips. I tried them on and at first they were hard to pull up around the thigh. I thought I'd have to send them back, but once I got them up they fit PERFECTLY. One of my biggest problems with "jogger" type pants is that the thigh is never flexible enough to be comfortable (without the rest being completely oversized) and with these pants that's not even close to an issue. I can do yoga in these, I can hike in these, I can chase my dogs and climb a tree in these. Living in a van means clothing has to be multi-functional or at the very least, accommodating and these pants are all that and then some. They are amazing, and I now want a pair in every single color.

I love these pants. I got complements on them the first day I wore them! 3 things to note. I wish the zipper to the back pocket was wider so that I could fit my phone in it. Secondly, the crotch! It wasn't a deal breaker but a bit awkward. I hate "v" shapes that some pants create. These pants do create a v shape, but I decided it was tolerable. Lastly the ankle is slightly too tight with the elastic material. I wore them around the house to decide if it was too much, and I stopped noticing it after a while. I'm the biggest critic and despite these things, I still love these pants. I ordered both the XS and XXS. I chose to keep the XXS. I could have kept both, the bigger being a more baggy, but the crotch was even worse. Awful. There is quite a bit of size difference between the two. I can agree that it seems like there's a size missing between them. I hope this helps someone!

There aren't enough good things I can say to describe this amazing pair of pants! I was hesitant upon purchasing them, being on the shorter side (5'3), but these pants can truly do it all! I primarily use them as climbing pants, but also have used them for longer chilly Fall bike rides and hikes. The length is great for my height (I ordered a short) and the fit is incredibly flattering-- not to mention the pockets are roomy and functional for your keys, phone or any additional gear you need on your daily adventures. I'd recommend these to anyone on the shorter side that's looking for a durable, versatile pair of pants.

Can you please make more tall sizes in your products?! It’s so difficult to find a 35” inseam or a fitted shirt that’s long enough...

Hi, can you tell me the weight of a small regular and a medium regular. Also, I am 5’4and 135 #., would a small or medium be a better fit for me?

Hey Terri, The small is right about 9oz, and the medium is right about 10.5 they are very close in weight. I am also 5'4" and 135lbs and I wear a small regular, however, if you like the pant length to hit you around the ankle instead id order short pant length!
