Rated 4 out of 5 by Women's anytime casual skort Just love this skort last year purchased it very nice stylish and comfortable, just recently purchased again in a different color, great for everyday, golf and on trips May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great skort you won't be disappointed I love this skort and the colour selection is great I have 4 different colours. The only complaint I have is that I had to come to the American web site to get the great colour selection. I don't know why Columbia only sells half the colour selection to Canadian market on there products that is available to the American market. That's my only complaint I have of Columbia and this product. One review talked about the inner short riding up, I've never found that a problem but maybe it has to do with the shape of her leg that is causing this rare problem. This skort wears beautifully and washes up like a dream. It looks great on young and old. I bought a pair for a friend as well and she loves them, looks great in them and she is in her mid 60's. This skort is great for any activity and is easily dressed up. I would recommend this product to anyone. May 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I have three of these and love them! So versatile and comfortable I wear one almost everyday I am not at work. My only minor complaint is the ties at the hem do not stay tied. I would prefer a bungee style tie. If they make more colors, I will buy them! May 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma's Cool Love this skirt/short and love Columbia's design. Columbia is an excellent resource for fit, quality, materials. April 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect skort Just love this skort, it's perfect really anywhere. Traveling hiking laying by the pool lake or beach. I love the drawstrings on the sides great when you want to adjust the length. Would love it in white. April 27, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shorts under skirt ride up constantly! I am really disappointed in Columbia's skorts. I am an Oregon native who moved to Florida last year. I travel all over the world and I rely on my Columbia wardrobe when I do. I have worn Columbia for years. Love their products but the skorts don't work! I bought one last year and loved it except for the shorts underneath the skirt. Have to pull it down constantly! So annoying! I tried three different kinds of skorts this year and have returned two already and now getting ready to return two other designs I decided to try. I have been working on the one I bought last year adding rubberized elastic to the shorts. That really works! At the price I paid and the reputation of Columbia I shouldn't have to reconstruct the product. Besides Columbia running on the small size, I love all their other products. Quality made and last for years! April 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Skort! Comfortable, cute on, I will wear this all of the time! S/P was perfect. I am 5ft 2in, 120lbs. Nice alternative to shorts! April 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great skort for active lifestyle Figure flattering multi purpose skort. Running errands, out to lunch, hiking - it works. It was little short for someone my age (57) and height 5'8". The inside shorts ride up on me and so I am constantly tugging them down. April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by cute skirt, super soft I bought this skirt in bright geranium. The color is a little more pink than it appears on screen, but not too pink. It's a little sheer but not too much. I love that you can pull the sides to make it more sporty or pull them down for casual days at work --- depending on your job. It fits true to size. Im petite and it fits me well above the knee. April 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great item for every day wear or for travel Brought this skort (black and khaki) on my recent trip to Cuba. Temps were in the high 80s/low 90s with 85% humidity. This skort worked like a champ! The material stood up to several washings in the hotel sink and looked great the next day. It's casual and yet dressy enough to wear to dinner. I cut off the side elastic ties because they were constantly tickling my leg and I kept thinking it was a bug or mosquito. I flattened the elastic out before cutting it and then sewed the ends closed. My only complaint is that the shorts underneath should be a little bit longer. I experienced a lot of heat rash because the shorts constantly rode up my thighs and then the shorts would only stay in place for a couple minutes. (It's really hard to discretely pull down the shorts when everyone thinks you're wearing a skirt). Other ladies in my travel group that wore golf skorts didn't get heat rash because their shorts were several inches longer and the material didn't ride up. April 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Could wear every day! This is my new favorite piece of clothing. It is perfect for any outdoor activity, looks great dressed up, and is SO comfortable! Highly recommend it! April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally, the perfect hiking/active lifestyle skirt I absolutely adore this skirt. I am actually going to buy another, since I've been wearing it for literally everything (running, hiking, backpacking, everyday wear, running errands, etc.). It is so cute that I even pair it with a fitted top & "go out" for drinks with my friends in it. I ride my bike almost everywhere, so the hidden shorts are perfect. I am 29-years old, 135 lbs, 5'3" with a 28" inseam and every other quick-dry hiking skirt I've tried goes to my knees (or lower) and makes me look stocky/poorly proportioned. I got this skirt in a small and it seems like it was made for me. This skirt is long enough to be modest and covered, but short enough to allow movement and look modern. I especially recommend this skirt for those with normal to petite frames. Other reviews mentioned that the Everblue is nothing close to the color pictured, and they are right. It's more of a subdued teal. That being said, I LOVE the color, as it compliments most of the other items in my wardrobe, which are mostly earth tones. I honestly couldn't recommend this skirt enough! March 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely skort! I work at an agency that is more business casual, so I rarely dress up and I've gotten accustomed to comfortable clothing. This skort is perfect at the office or around town on the weekends. Looking forward to wearing it once the weather warms up! March 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The cutest! Perfect skirt! This skirt is wonderful! Fit is true to size. I am 5'7" and a 14 in most clothing, and the large is just perfect. The length is mid-thigh - not too short or too long. The wide elastic waistband doesn't roll or pinch, so no muffin-top anywhere! Underneath, the shorts are very lightweight, and do not bunch or ride up. Love the slightly "dressier" feel of the fabric, especially compared to other skorts. These are sure to be a staple March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Skort LOVE skorts & this one is no exception! Since I have worn out some of my current ones, I decided to replace them with these. Got them in Tusk, Black & Everblue (the blue in mine is actually more of a denim color rather than a brighter blue & is very nice). If you like skorts, this is for you :-) March 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sexy skort Love this go anywhere skort. Looks fantastic and a little sexy, very comfortable as well. I liked my black one so much, that I ordered another one in light grey. Pair it with a tank top, casual t shirt. March 16, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Don't believe your eyes Color isn't blue I love these skorts. I have one in every color. I am sorely disappointed with this so called Everblue. Is isn't anywhere near blue. I would call it evergreen. Very disappointed in the color as it is nothing like the picture! March 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for Florida Very comfortable for active lifestyles. Material is very soft. Good for lounging or athletic activity. February 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall Good I had one of these skirts in black and liked it so much I wanted more so I order the taupe colour and the blue. The blue is NOT like the blue that is shown but rather a grey blue that doesn't match anything other than a white top. I'm disappointed but will still get some wear out of it. The ties never seem to stay tied either so I just give up tying them. January 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ever blue I was so excited to see the blue color. I had been waiting all season for a blue color to come available. The color I received is not what is advertised. It is a ugly greenish color that matches nothing Columbia offers. All the other colors are great and match as advertised. If you are looking for a nice blue color don't order this one. January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another quality product from Columbia Fiance' loves them. Extremely comfortable January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I love it! I've tried it on the stores before purchasing online, so I knew what size to buy. Would recommend to anyone! December 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice and comfy Very useful and attractive skirt that can be used for golf, shopping, etc. Material is soft and stretchy. Pockets are good for golf. Agree with other reviewer that skirt looks much better without scrunching the sides. I cut the ties off also, but there is elastic that runs up the entire side of the skirt so you need to flatten out the elastic once in a while because there is slight puckering. December 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice skort I bought all three colors of this. I need to wear something on the ankles either loose or nonexistent due to a surgery I recently had. I can zip around on my knee scooter while wearing this when I return to work in a couple weeks as a Special Education teacher. The waist fit great, perhaps a little loose but I can tuck in a turtleneck or something to help with that. December 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 1st Skort This is my first Skort. I purchased it for a cruise we doing and thought it would be more flexible then shorts. I've been wearing it and love it. It's comfortable material, especially after a wash or 2. I really like the length, and love that it has pockets. I wear a size 8 and bought a medium, it has stretch and fits well. If there is a downside the side ties don't alway stay tied and it sits higher on my waist than I anticipated. But overall I'm glad I bought 2 when they were on sale. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT!!! I can't wait to buy another next Spring! November 26, 2015
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
