For Petite Women Only

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

I am athletically built, with thick muscular thighs, curvy hips, and a butt. I couldn't even pull this over mid thigh. Either I received a pair that was miss sized or they are only for slender or petite women.

Nice pants but too tight

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

Great quality pants, I loved the look of them because they look very sleek and the fabric is thin. Unfortunately sizing is not consistent between the Backcountry on the go pants. I bought an XXS in the cropped version and they fit perfectly. But I wasn’t able to even get this version passed my thighs. The waist/hips region were so tight, I will have to return.

Nice pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Size Bought: XS

I'm on the petite side and have a hard time finding pants that can fit me. I love the material of the pants, very light weight and something i can wear around the house or on hikes. I read that the pants are on the smaller size so I ordered both an XXS and a XS. The XXS was too small as it couldn't make it past my butt, and the XS was perfect. It's a little tight around the thighs, but I can still move around in them.

Odd sizing for me, nice pants though

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

These pants have so much potential! Great material, love the colors and elastic waist band. They seem like they would be great for any outdoor activity in addition to lifestyle or work.
Unfortunately they struck my three personal classic patterns when it comes to hiking/climbing pants: too loose around the waist, too tight around the thigh, and too long. I am 5'4", 125 lb with an athletic build - small stomach and waist with somewhat girth-y thighs from squatting and running. My legs may also be proportionally short for my height.
Didn't find anything wrong with the pants themselves, bummer they didn't fit. Hope this helps anyone with similar sizing issues.
By the way, I ordered a small and medium. The small had the issues I mentioned above, the medium was flat out too big for me.

Way too small

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

I ordered a medium without reading the other reviews. Wish I had! These pants were more like an XS than a medium. Could barely get them on.

Weird sizing

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

The S in these is smaller than the XS Stoic pant by almost an inch. Like other reviewers said, even with sizing up it can be hard to get these over your thighs/hips because the front (no elastic) has no give whatsoever. But once I did, it fit great on the waist! It was still a tad tight on the caboose, and the length was a tad short, so I decided it wasn't worth keeping.

Sizing off

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

I liked the on-the-go pants I got that had the elastic at the ankles. I checked with Backcountry via chat to make sure these pants were sized the same, just with a straight leg. These ones are a lot smaller. I was excited to have two more pairs of these comfy pants but they have to be returned.

Great pants

    Love these pants. They have great stretch and are very comfortable.

    Had high hopes

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

    I had really high hopes for these pants, loved the mauve color. But the fit was horrible. The rise wasn't high enough for me, and I sized up for a L and they JUST fit. (I'm a size 8 / 29" waist) There's zero stretch and I could barely get them over my hips. If the elastic waistband was stretchier, or paired with a zip or something for a more tailored fit perhaps it would have worked. But the cut was too straight for my shape, loose at the waistband, tight thru the thighs, could barely get on, and I was just rather disappointed. Probably would have been too light of a fabric to do much aside from lounging anyway. Returned and did not keep

    Size Up Two Sizes

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

    The sizing on these pants is way off relative to the size chart provided. I am normally a large and that's what I ordered based on the measurements in the size chart. I could barely put these pants on. I wanted them to fit so badly because they look very comfortable. I don't think athletic ladies were taken into account when designing these :/

    Couldn't find a size that worked

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I ordered the M and the L because I wasn't sure which would fit (I have big thighs/butt and small waist). Couldn't even get the M over my thighs, the L was skin tight in the thigh/butt area but had a couple spare inches in the waist. So bummed. I loved the shape and feel of these but it's just one more thing made for tiny people.

    Perfect travel pants!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    I bought these for traveling and they did NOT disappoint. They are perfect for a weekend trip- I didn’t even pack any other pants. The other reviews are VERY accurate. These pants definitely run small. I’m a curvy/thick bottomed 5’6” 155lb and normally wear a medium. The large fits me well, although a wee snug. If you’re looking for very roomy pants, I’d recommend 2 sizes larger than you’d normally wear.


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

    These pants are great and multi-purpose! They are lightweight, breathable, stretchy, and comfortable! I'm looking forward to wearing these pants, not only for outdoor adventures, but also for lounging and functioning as scrub pants as well.

    I'm typically XS, and these fit me just fine.


    Didn't work for me

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

    I wanted these pants to fit, but they just aren't cut for my curves (I'm 5' 6" & 160 lbs). They were too tight in the butt & thighs. However, the fabric is really nice and I'm sure they'd be great for someone with a less curvy shape.


    • 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. Same issue with the ankle length. Very disappointing. Now have to pay to return when these clearly aren’t an order mistake but a make issue.

    Runs Small

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: L

    Enjoy the lighweight fabric, but the the pants runs small around the waist and upper thigh area. Read the previous reviews of folks that bought the On The Go Ankle Pants to get a size up from the ankle pants. Ankle pants were a medium (fit great), these long women pants style were a Large (too tight). Would recommend two sizes up. The pants are too tight for my curves. Having the return these. Luckily the ankle pants fit much better, more room around the waist and upper legs.

    Runs Small!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I ordered two sizes up from my usual size because of the reviews. These definitely run small in the waist and hips. I'm pear-shaped so, I need extra room in the hips! But, other than that, they are very comfortable, lightweight and a great length!

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Have someone measure from the center of the back neck down the arm, with arm slightly bent, to the wrist bone.
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Measure from the crotch to the floor with no shoes.
    Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
