New favorite pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: s

I stalked these online for a while and when they went on sale decided to try them. Very comfy, lighter option to sweatpants and a little less casual than sweats. I now own 2 pair and bought a pair for my daughter. She will wear them only camping. I wear them daily and have also hiked in them. Will be great for road trips. Fabric does have a little "swoosh" sound to it when you walk but overall fabric very soft, light and stretches. I am 5'5, 130lb, my daughter is 5'7 same weight. The small fits great and length is perfect at the ankle/just above the ankle for both of us. As soon as they are clean I wear them again. Perfect for spring

Very Itchy Inseam

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

Maybe I got a defective pair, but I love everything about these pants besides the fact that the inseam is incredibly abrasive and rubs against the inside my thighs. I find myself having to hike up the crotch to be able to walk without the rubbing as I waddle around. I love how these pants fit and look, but the amount of discomfort I feel while wearing has me picking them from the closet less and less. Since I haven't seen anyone else comment about this issue, there's a chance that either they fixed this issue or I have a particularly uncomfortable pair. Hoping this is fixed because I'd love to try these again in the future.

Super Comfy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

These pants are so comfortable and breathable. The drawstring helps with being able to tighten to your liking. I have a bigger butt with thicker legs and I got a large. They are a little loose in the waist but the drawstring is perfect! If I were to buy a medium, I feel the waist would fit nicely, however they would be super tight in the butt/leg area. I would recommend to anyone for relaxing, hiking, or anything!

great pant for hikes or casual wear

Save & Pack Less

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: XS

The pant that does it all! Comfortable for long days at the airport, or running errands. Fabric is lightweight, and breathable. Giving you enough stretch for all your hiking and rock climbing adventures. Black color gives it a dresser look for work.

Very confortable but baggy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

Too wide in the hips. Did not like the look.

Perfect for both work and outdoors!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

Got these pants in Sep when my climbing leggings are all worn out. My first impression is the fabric felt harder than cotton, but they looked great on me. They can be both causal work pants in the office or super cute outdoor hiking and climbing pants. Took these pants on a climbing trip to Indian Creek last week. I can easily fit a thin warm legging under for warmth. Highly recommend them, hoping to get another pair soon in a different color.

Perfect for both work and outdoors!

Can't Wait to Order My Next Pair

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

After reading some of the reviews I was hesitant. I've got big thighs and hips for my frame. The pants are a little snug on my legs initially, but honestly that is consistent for any pants I purchase. The pants do stretch over the course of the day so it all works out. The waistband is snug without being constricting and the fabric of these pants are perfect for "fall" days in Savannah (high 70s-low 80s with some humidity). I purchased a pair that was on sale, but I'm thinking now I may just go ahead and go for the full-price black pair, I love them that much.

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XXS/XS

I really wanted to love these. I am very petite and I was so excited to see Backcountry offering a XXS as a lot of brands don't. I love the colors and the fabric. However I am not sure if I am in between sizes or the fit just isn't right for my body. The XXS felt constricting over the thighs, but comfortable on the waist. The XS was gappy in the waist and right in the thighs. Just for kicks and giggles thought I would try the S - and they were a parachute. I'm sure they're awesome on some people!

The absolute best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. After wearing these pants multiple times, I understand why they are called "on the go" - I love them for all occasions! I recently took them on a trip and they were the only pants I brought because they were perfect for all situations (the plane, around the house, on a hike, etc.). I love how stretchy the fabric is and the front and back pockets are very deep without feeling too bulky (fits my iPhone 6 nicely) which is always a bonus because deep pockets can be hard to find on women'™s pants. The back pocket is zippered too which has proved very useful when I want to go out on a quick jog and don't want the pocket contents to fall out. The color options and stitching on the side enhances the fashionable yet sporty feel to the pants and the drawstring is very secure when tied. I'™ve washed the pants many times and the color, fabric, and size comes out looking just as it first did when I got the pants. I also recently wore them when scrambling on rocks and the fabric never wore down no matter how many rocks I scraped up against. Another bonus is that the pants look great when rolled up (cuffed) and not rolled up. I'm relatively short but these pants look great when they aren't rolled up which is hard to come by in other pants. They will definitely be my go-to pants for years to come. For context, I own size Medium and my hip size is 38 inches. Color is Peppercorn.

The absolute best


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Love these pants, they are my new go to for daily wear. They fit true to size and are prefect for running errands and trying to keep up with my toddler. Super soft material as well. If you’re thinking about getting them, I totally recommend it!

Perfect for petite women

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

These are the best fitting, most stylish functional pants I've ever experienced - esp as a thin petite woman. the "crop" is the perfect pant length for me (I'm all torso, short legs). The XS is true to "misses" sizing which is perrrrfect for me because a lot of outdoor apparel is "womens" sizing and always too baggy somewhere unless I order a XXS which usually ends up being too tight somewhere... le sigh. The cut of these pants is perfect and not too baggy or clingy anywhere. The pleats on the front pelvic region allow easy movement, but lay flat when standing up straight for a polished look. The perfect light weight, not too thin and provocative in the butt. Love that the elastic is only across the back to not pull across my stomach – I'm 10wks preggo and still enjoying these pants because of that. Also I like the medium-low rise for the same reason :) I basically wear these everyday now lol.


  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Wanted to love these. Ordered XL and everything on them says XL but they can’t be any bigger then a M. Something is wrong either mis- sized or someone has a sick idea of what XL is.

Great Everyday Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I was a little worried about the fit of these pants when I first put them on because they were slightly more fitted than I was expecting. With that being said, they are comfy and stretchy, and very easy to wear. I'm tall (5'11"sh), and these hit just above my ankles. I'll probably wear these to work, on easy hikes, and maybe when I'm floating the river with friends.

Thanks for the great review, Eden! Glad to hear you're enjoying them!

Everyday pants

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

Lightweight, super stretch and the color looks great. Ordered a medium and fits true to the size (size 8-10) I'm a shorty with soccer legs and these will be my everyday pants.

Perfect length for shorties!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

Bought these because I'd been dying to try a pair of OTG pants but I'm quite short so normal length pants always drown me. Fit is true to size if you look at the charts and is flattering. The pants have stretch and don't bag out after wear. I will be purchasing more
