On the Go Active Pants (Petite Friendly) + Waffle Hoodie

Backcountry athleisure sale
On the Go pants xxs Short, Stoic waffle knit hoodie xs, Nike sneakers 5.5

As many of us having been living in athleisure lately, I wanted to share some petite-friendly finds that are comfortable but also practical for everyday wear and exercise! These lightweight pants come in extended sizing, and reviewers mention that they’re great for a range of activities like hiking, biking or climbing just to name a few. My top is a different brand, but comes in fairly coordinated colors with the pants if you want to wear them as a set! For cold weather, I layer my long wool or teddy coats over this.

In addition to their exclusive lines (which my top and pants are from), Backcountry has a wide selection of name brands like Patagonia, The North Face, Nike and Therabody for everything from athleisure to winter sports gear. I’m partnering with them to share their Semi-Annual Sale with up to 50% off select styles, including my outfit here! For full-price merchandise, you can use code JEAN15 for 15% off your first purchase (some exclusions apply).

On the Go Pant (5 colors)

These pants come in petite-friendly sizing starting in xxs Short, with two front pockets and a back zippered pocket. They’re made of a very lightweight, slightly stretchy, breathable athletic / technical fabric and not a cozy fleecy type jogger so are good for running errands or activewear. Fit wise, they are mid rise and have a slim jogger silhouette. The Short length works well on me at 5′ tall (inseam of the XXS Short measures 26″) and should work for someone a tad taller too.


Waffle Knit Hoodie (3 colors; on sale for under $30)

This 100% cotton waffle textured top has a petite friendly shrunken fit, so size up if you want a more relaxed fit! It has a drop shoulder style, and is slim throughout the sleeves and straight cut through the torso (bottom hem is not a banded style). Note this has a shorter torso length that works well on someone petite but would be cropped on someone regular height. XS measures approximately 20″ long.

Knit Cowl Pullover (3 colors; on sale for under $15)

I wanted to show this stretchy athleisure top as well, especially since it’s on major sale! It has a unique crossover folded neckline that’s part of the hood, and a slouchy dolman cut with more fitted banded waist. Note the sleeves on this are long so I have them cuffed up in the try-on photo.

Thank you to Backcountry for partnering on this post.

      Hi Juli – I hope you like the pieces! The sneakers are the Odyssey React style. I got them a while ago and I forget whether I customized them at Nike to do the gold swoosh (I have used their custom feature to make a few pairs in the past!).
