Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortable everyday outfit fabric doesn't wrinkle too much even after sitting a while. comfortable for golf and walking. wish pockets were a little deeper but can hold cell phone and keys easily. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Great quality and comfort. Wash and wear. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this skort! This skort is the cutest skort ever and is so comfortable to wear! It can be worn to the beach or to lunch, it is that functional, and I get lots of compliments on it! I have given this skort as gifts, and the recipients love it as much as I do! I now have it in black and grey. Love this skort! July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super soft and comfortable! This skort is very comfortable. The shorts underneath are soft and breathable. Very nice product! July 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for hiking, walking I purchased this skirt prior to taking a trip to the Midwest where the weather could vary from a beautiful cool day in the 70s to a sticker, sunny 80-degree experience. This skirt was perfect for hiking in both! I followed the size chart and found the XS to fit well (typically wear size 2 but have wider hips and larger thighs). Sometimes I find that certain pants/shorts/skirts are either too loose in the waist and then too tight around the thighs. I would highly recommend this skirt to anyone looking for something comfortable to take on the trail! July 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this skort! I don't usually like skorts because the inner shorts tend to bunch up between my legs. This skort is the most comfortable one I have every tried! The thin, stretchy material of the inner short is not only comfortable, but it keeps you cool on a hot day. I also love the side ties, which allow you to make it shorter and also gives it a bit more style. I loved it so much, I bought it in 2 colors and wear them all summer long. A must try! July 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Undershorts roll I love the fit, fabric and coverage of the skort itself, but the inner short rolls. Constantly. I can't get up from a chair or carseat without having to yank the inner short down. I am curvy and have muscular thighs. Would love to see either more spandex in the inner short and/or a silicone grip band on the bottom to keep the leg in place. Many people have complimented me on the fit and color (purple) and have asked where to buy this skort! July 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish comfort Flattering fit with POCKETS! Have this in 2 colors and always get compliments when I wear them. Fun for work and play. I'm a swim coach, this can be my uniform. July 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A staple in my wardrobe The Anytime Casual Skort is my casual go-to in my closet. In fact, I own 5 different colors and am considering ordering a black one! These pull-on skorts are soft and comfy. My biggest complaint about Columbia women's clothing is they run REALLY small but this skort runs fairly true-to-size. I wear a 12 and order large. July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best skirt ever! I bought one and loved it so much that I bought two more in different colors! The waist band is comfortable and flattering. June 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wife love them I bought these for my wife and they fit and look great. She loves them and wants more in different colors! June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Every Day Skort Really like this skort! Material is soft, stretchy, durable through many washings. I am a 5'9", 170lb apple shape and size 14 fits great. The waistband smooths out my tummy. If the pockets were deeper it would be perfect. Otherwise, can't say enough good things. June 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I am 60ish, prefer the skirt to shorts. Great length and fashionable. June 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A must have staple for your wardrobe I'm 5'4" 130lbs. I bought two of these skorts because of the reviews and amazing sale price. I bought the black and grey colors. It is towards the end of my day and I'm wearing the grey skort as I'm writing this review. The color is as pictured on the model and the fit around the waist is comfortable( I do have a small muffin top) but the elastic waist hides my bulge until I loose those extra pounds. The built in shorts do ride up a little but is not noticeable from the outside. I gave the skort 4 stars because I noticed moderate wrinkling in the fabric. I'm going to buy one more skort in the purple lotus color. May 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this skort! I bought two of these anytime casual skorts, and I am very pleased with my purchase. The look, feel, and construction is wonderful! The material has a slight stretch to it which makes the skort very comfortable to wear. Undoubtedly, I will wear these a lot this summer! Would highly recommend. May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these skorts! Yes, I have three of them! The are very flattering, even for my thicker legs. Love the fabric (although it requires a bit of light ironing), they are soft, comfortable and cute! Great sale price and competes well with Athleta brand skorts. May 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it Love this skirt. I bought it so that I can have comfortable but 'nice' shorts for work. Looks good, feels good. My ONLY 'complaint' would be that I wish the shorts were a little longer or that they had that sticky stuff on the legs so that they wouldn't ride up. May 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits well and very soft Perfect for work and easy dressing. April 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Burning thighs I am kind of chunky in the thighs, but lean everywhere else, so skirts usually look best on me. I like skirts because the shorts underneath keep my legs from rubbing together while walking. The shirts under the skirt on this item are very very short and the fabric is loose...and it rolls up when you walk!!! I hate that! April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This is extremely comfortable and suitable for running errands, casual parties, walking, kayaking, etc. I don't like the ties on the side, so I just pull them down and cut them off. You would never know it was designed with ties. After I tried my first skort, I purchased three more. Wish they came in a bigger variety of colors. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I love this skort! The fabric is breathable and flexible -- great for playing golf on a hot day and also for just wearing around town. I went with one size up as my normal size was a little tight. April 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Flattering! Though I love Columbia, their sizing is all over the place! This Anytime Casual Skort, however, fits true to size. This is a very flattering design; the length is just long enough to hit you at the best part of your thigh, it doesn't make you hippy, and the waistband is uber-comfy and slimming. The only complaint I have is that the pockets are too shallow to carry a smart phone; with activity more than walking flat, it will fall out. I originally ordered in black and have now placed an order for 3 more colors. March 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Skort I highly recommend this skort. Great fit, very comfortable and keeps cool in the hot weather. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Women's Anytime Casual Skort Love it Unfortunately I ordered a medium in light grey and it was a bit small. I had to return for a large and grey was out of stock. I ended up with purple, I don't love the color (prefer grey). Material is great, fit is great in a large, very comfortable and looks slimming. I am 5'8 and generally wear a size 10. March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great skirt I'm very happy with this skirt, wonderful fabric, cute side detail. The black color is a true black. I'll be wearing this all summer. I am 5'4", 130lbs and the small fits great. March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it! Last summer my daughter bought me a beige skort because I broke my wrist and needed an elastic waistband. I wore it all the time, love the look and feel. It even has a pocket. This year I am buying more. So glad they still have it. March 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A great addition to summer wardrobe Very comfortable but they would be perfect if the "shorts" under the skirt were a little tighter to the body. They tend to scrunch up. March 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great skirt--quite short Absolutely love the style and fabric on this skirt. I am in my late 50's and wanted a skirt that I can shop or hike in. I am 5'2" tall and I needed to undo the side strings to make it appropriate for my age. Please continue to make this skirt only add some length! Four stars for length. February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So flattering I have some running skorts of old, and they are a bit too long for me for running, but still look like athletic wear for gallivanting around....sort of fall between two categories, so may be rotated to Goodwill. Now, THIS skort is so stylish and flattering (not as a runner, but daily wear or hiking), not too long but adjustable ruching at the sides can change the look. It will be worn much in the hotter spring/summer months. I might need to pick up a couple of more in different colors. I ordered the RED, and it has a little bright orange tint to set it off as different from typical. Nice color. January 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this skirt!! I'm so excited to see this skort back in stock and offered in even more colors. I had 3 colors last summer and wore the heck out of them. They still look like new, but I've gone down a size, so I need more. Time to pass the old ones to a friend and invest in all the colors. This is the most comfortable skort I've ever owned, it's very flattering, and it works on all figures. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by How about black? Love this skort! Super comfy, high quality fabric and construction. Wish I could get one in black. Heck, other colors too! I could wear this everyday of summer! August 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super Love this skirt Great for every day also. August 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by MORE COLORS, PLEASE! This skort is perfect. Very comfortable. I wish it was a bit longer as I'm in my 50's, but love the fit and flexibility of what you can do while wearing. I purchased all four colors (blue, black, tan & grey), and my only regret is that they didn't come in more colorful options. They're my travel go-to as you can dress them up or down and they're perfect for wearing on long distance flights. I've noticed Columbia doesn't currently have any in stock, so hopefully they're having more made and in vibrant colors! June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Skort-a-licious This is the best fitting skort/skirt material I've ever worn. Holds me in in all the right places, very flattering fit. Nothing binding and could wear this every day and would if these came in seven different colors. I wear it both casually and to work. Love it. May 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This skort has great features. I was looking for an alternative to shorts. This skirt is perfect for golf and everyday wear. The length can be adjusted and the flat waistband is flattering as well as comfortable. Also wrinkle free for travel. March 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Anytime Casual Skort I really want to like this skort. My biggest complaint is that there is no drawstring or any other kind of method to adjust the fit to the waistband. It is a pull on type of skort, and if the fit is a touch too big, there is no way to tighten the fit so that there will be no sagging, or accidental de-pants with this item. March 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome skort for summer I had a friend who had this skort on last summer and we all tried to find it in a store as she looked so good in it and she told us it was the most comfortable item in her closet for summer. I ordered one from Columbia.com and loved it so much I have now ordered one in different color and have let my friends know where to get theirs.....all body types look great in this skort! Ideal for golfing! March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Skort works for tennis I'm always looking for skorts that can function well on the tennis court, hold balls in one pocket and tissues in the other. This one works well, the pockets are a little shallow, but hold one ball, just enough. March 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good for an apple, but I'm a pear This skort is too big around the waist for me - but I have a pear shape. The shorts are a bit too thin & short for my thighs (they would ride up) but would probably be fine for an apple figure with thinner thighs. February 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will be buying another one I just took it out of the box and tried it on and from the look and feel of it, it's just what I wanted. I'm a curvy 5'4" and it's the perfect fit and length for me. i like the flexible material...nothing is digging into me and would be comfortable to wear on a long flight. I will definitely be ordering another. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wish there were more colors; I love it! Runs true to size. I am 5'7" 132# with an athletic slim build. I love wearing skirts that are bit shorter... I work hard for these legs! This skort is great because it is adjustable on the sides: I can pull it up shorter for a hike, and then lower it to wear to the office. The shorts underneath are comfy and don't show through like VPL's. I wish this skort was offered in many colors, I love it that much. Very flattering fit and with the flat, wide waistband, it is smooth under slimmer fitting tops and doesn't create bulges. Comes out of the washer/dryer looking great and packs well for travel. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by my first time ordering...but not my last I am very pleased with the skort. I was going to wear it for golfing, but it is perfect for any time you would need a pair of shorts. June 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Skort This skort is really cute and comfortable. It is a great alternative to shorts for the summer. June 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Summer skirt Perfect for a dressy but active day. I love this skirt, the waistband is stretchy and great for all day comfort. May 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome! likely the skirt I will live in this spring/summer! very pleased. May 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this! First day I wore this skort, I got two compliments on what a cute "skirt" this was. The midweight fabric is stretchy and comfortable, and it looks flattering. I've worn it only once so far but I can already tell it's going to be a summertime staple in my wardrobe. I bought the tusk color, and have ordered a second one in boulder grey. I like the length as is, I thought the side cinchers hiked up the length too much so I don't use them. Only thing I would change is the length of the inner liner, either making it shorter or longer. It's an in-between that tends to hike up and bunch on the leg during the course of the day and I had to pull it down a couple of times. Other than that slight inconvenience, it's a great product. May 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Active Wear I own this skort in the black and the boulder. It is perfect for walking, aerobic class, and even running errands! I love the length of this skort. It hits several inches above the knee and seems appropriate for anyone who no longer wants to wear short shorts. April 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Important part of my wardrobe This skort has great fit and just the right amount of stretch. The length is fine, thought it looks a little odd when shortened with the side cords. The inner shorts should be about 2-3 inches longer to keep them from bunching up. April 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Comfortable This skort fits great. Very true to size. With enough stretch to make long plane rides or hiking very comfortable. The weight is perfect for hot, humid days and the material dries quickly if you get wet. March 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT! This skort is great- it is sporty enough for outdoor activities but cute enough to not look out of place in other settings. The shorts on the inside of the skort are short (which I like) and very comfortable- formfitting without being too tight. The ties on the side allow for you to adjust the length of the skirt. I'll definitely be bringing this on vacation with me as it will allow me to spend the day kayaking or hiking and go right into an evening of dinner out and exploring town. March 7, 2013
