My first pair of the "yoga" type pant and I like them so well, I've ordered the skinny version. They seem to run pretty true to size. Like all Columbia products, they're very well made and I expect they will last a long time.

Comfortable pants, poor quality
I bought these pants 3 months ago to wear hiking and rock climbing. They are great for both purposes, very comfortable and stretchy. The high back is great for under a harness or backpack. As others have said, like outdoorsy yoga pants.
However, the material or construction is definitely sub-par. After wearing them 2-3 times and washing once (air-dry only) the pants developed weird stretch marks near the knees and calves. It looks like the stretch fabric got over stretched, sort of like shrink wrap. Hard to describe, but definitely awful looking. These pants fit well, so I don't think it is caused by wearing overly tight pants.
I still wear them, because I don't really care if my climbing pants are a little ugly, but I definitely wouldn't buy them again or recommend them to someone else.

Back Beauty is a great design
I bought these because I loved the Back Beauty Capris so much. I did find the Back Beauty length on the boot cut vs the skinny cut had to be different. I needed Short on Boot (& regular on skinny). I wear for lounging, out with boots or tennis shoes, or jogging & yoga in cooler times. The skinny one I also bought, not as versatile, but looks great with longer sweaters for a little extra warmth & inside knee high boots.
