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.

Awesome pants but a little snug

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.

I ordered these pants in a size medium in both asphalt and black. The asphalt pants I received are at least two inches shorter than the black. I did not want cropped pants in this style so they have to go back. Love the black pants though - long enough and fit perfectly. I may reorder the asphalt and hope the next pair is long enough!

I did really like the look of these pants - they remind me of 90's swishy tracksuits but with a cute jogger cut. I thought they were flattering but ran just a tad large (depending on how you want them to fit) - I am generally a small and am 5'5", on me these pants were just a bit too long and I probably could have sized down for a tighter fit. However, I purchased them to wear to work and unfortunately the fabric is quite swishy and loud so I had to return them. Otherwise they would have been a great pant. If you are just going to wear them walking around outside I think you would be fine, seem like great travel pants, but I work in a variety of environments and loud pants just won't fly.

like a sun hoodie - but for your legs

Familiarity:

True to size

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I love how versatile these pants are, I use them for pretty much everything! They're SUPER comfy and kept me at the perfect temperature between 30-90 degrees while backpacking both Naturalist Basin in the Uintas (chilly and shaded) and Mount Timpanogos in the Wasatch (exposed and HOT). Backcountry's On The Go Pants do a great job of keeping you protected from the wind, sun, and foliage when you find yourself in a bit of a bushwhack situation. Imagine a sun hoodie - but for your legs. And as a bonus, the back pocket is great for stashing some cash or a key on a quick excursion! I'm usually sized schmedium and got the m/reg, but I think I could get away with the s/reg too. The mediums are cozy and look cute, but I do have to make sure I tie the waist drawstring otherwise heavy pocket items can pull the pants down a tad. Leg length is perhaps everrrr so slightly long for my height (short might be too short though), but the cinched ankles make sure any extra material is out of the way! Like I said, I'm a size schmedium so I'd call these true to size. If you're like me, size up if you like things a little loose and cozy or size down if you want a performance fit. Overall impression - these pants are great for grabbing a cup of coffee, going for a hike, or taking a few days to disconnect in the backcountry. Look good while you have fun - whether it's type one or type two. Definitely grab yourself a pair of these!

I love love love these. It's very hard for me to find small enough pants and short enough pants, so seeing an XS-SHORT option was the selling point. These are the *perfect* fit for me. I usually wear Boy's Large but pants are often too narrow around the hips, and still too long. These pants are fitted but not tight, loose but not baggy, so they look good but allow me to move around. (Some reviews say these are for certain builds, and I would have to agree. I am on the slimmer side.) The fabric is stretchy and light - it feels weird at first, it's not soft like cotton, but very breathable. I wore them on a long hot bike ride, was sweaty all over, yet didn't feel like they were "sticky" or hot. Pockets are always a plus. I haven't climbed in them but they will be my go-to for sure.

I bought these pants in 2 colors because I wanted a pant I could wear hiking or out with a cute top. These did not disappoint. The pants fit me true to size, as I have more of an athletic build with larger thighs and hips than the average girl at my height. I have difficulty finding joggers that fit without being too tight in the thighs and baggy in the lower leg, but these fit perfectly! They are form fitting through the leg but not tight to the body, creating a flattering look.

First off, I love the material, it is super comfy and breathable. I ordered the short size and it is perfect length without the excess fabric at the legs. I have a more athletic build with a bigger thighs, so I purchased a medium. But after trying it on, the waist is too big. I am able to tighten it with the tie but I’m afraid of purchasing smaller and the legs being too tight. Not sure what to do here. May keep and just deal with the waistband.

Overall I guess I am happy with them. However I read a review before purchasing mentioning that these aren't made for "athletic builds", and they were spot on. I'm 5 foot nothing and 120 lbs. They are just a little more snung than I would prefer in the butt and thighs. I am happy that there is a short option and I would say that the length fits nicely. I do plan to keep them vs returning.
