Rated 4 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Construction flaw The inside of this skort is quite snug fitting and sweat wicking (which is great). The outside of the skort is a different fabric. It repelled water great but it was too big and kept falling down. If I had ordered a smaller size the inside would not have fit me. I sent it back because it's unwearable. October 15, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very dissatisfied The material for the under short is poor,tight fiting, rides up . i am considering returning; very disaponted.! Because of previous review i purposely ordered an 8 i normally wear a 4to 6 depending on style. September 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy Skort I bought this skort for golf because it looked like a nice, trim fit, is lightweight and the shorts part are more like leggings that won't bunch up under on a hot day. It worked beautifully though the leggings did ride up a bit (very hot day!) and the pockets were a little too deep for golf. Don't get me wrong, I love the pockets but may need to just use this skort for other uses, maybe not golf. I'll give that another try, though, on a cooler day. September 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by love it Ordered a 12 and I usually wear a 10. Fits great, shorts are not bulky. Ordered another in another color for upcoming vaca. September 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy and cute Love this skort. The material is soft and comfortable. It's sporty and yet cute. And to top it off, it doesn't wrinkle. Come out of the dryer and ready to wear. Perfect for a busy life. August 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super cute but runs small A really cute skort, but it runs very small and I just didn't want to exchange for one size up to see how that was going to go. I'd just bought the Sun Chill'd skort, which is amazing, in fit and function so exchanging the Armadale skort just wasn't a priority. I recommend the skort, just know you should consider at least one size, if not two, larger. August 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by swimsuit cover-up I bought the skort to allow me to ride my bike with my swimsuit on and look somewhat modest, stay cool, and not get any clothing caught in my gears or spokes. The black skort worked perfectly. The size 16 was good when it was dry but hung a little when it was wet so i also bought a 14; that worked a lot better. I was hoping that it would dry quickly but it stays wet, even a day later when I hang it on a towel rack. Would have liked it to be quick drying. It was perfect to wear as a swimsuit cover-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great skort I've bought this skort for the last 3 years. It's so comfortable, looks good shopping, traveling, & exploring the outdoors. July 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great skort! I hesitated purchasing this skort because of the price, however, am quite pleased I did so. It is great for active wear, but also nice enough to do errands. I love the deep pockets and the little snap side pocket. I am glad I heeded the advice of other reviewers and ordered a size larger than I typically wear. July 2, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very, very small! After reading the reviews, I got an 8 (I am usually a 6 in jeans, skirts, etc). I would say this is on the small side even for a 6. I can do it up (just!) and it looks great, but I find the shorts underneath the skirt very, very tight. I have a skort from mountain hardware and it is like butter - wish the inner shorts were more like these. Perhaps I should have gone 2 sizes up, but with online purchasing it's hard to know... I will wear these and hope the inner short stretch. June 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Recommend skort seem revamp Without trying it on in the store, I purchased the Armadale in white and was quite satisfied with the fabric and fit...until I looked at my backside in a mirror. The interior brief has a seam running crossways across the butt. It would have been perfect if no seam there. I suggest designers try to go for seamless rump. I try to avoid panty lines, and this became an odd version of that for my particular figure. I'll be returning it. Maybe this wouldn't be so visible in a print or darker solid color, or worn by another body shape, thus my giving it higher marks. May 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for everything! I work in a marina and rent kayaks. This is perfect for everyday. I can be in the water teaching someone how to kayak one minute and at the bank next. No need to change. Looks good and is very functional. March 11, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Thin Fabric Skirt was disappointing for me, I must not have read the copy closely on the fabric, it seemed way too flimsy for outdoor use. Also, the fit was small. I usually wear a 14 - I ordered this in a 16 because of the user comment. The 16 was still too small and too short for me. February 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Skirt I got this in the wrong season, but paired with some thick tights, the skirt is adorable, and warm in the winter. The wicking does keep you cool, so summer months, when not wearing tights, you're not left sweaty in the skirt... Overall it's adorable, and comfortable, and a great buy! October 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this skort! I am 5 ft and the skort length is about how I would want my shorts to be. They are really cute and I like the flattering cut. They don't flare out into an "A" like some golf skorts, which I didn't want. The fabric is light, stretchy and comfy, and perfect for travel (will dry quickly). I can see how many reviews stated "size runs small." Although they fit me just right (and the stretchy fabric helps), I have other bottoms that are size 6 that are often larger. I think that this is closer to a size 4 in most other brands. The button was very loose and I had to resew it, hence the rating on quality. I would want to get more of these skorts, and would love to see it in an expresso (dark) brown, and a "jeans" blue (i don't care for the bright blue). September 24, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by It was a little shorter than I wanted. I liked this item, it was cute on and I really liked the fabric. I wish it would have been a little longer, I thought it was a bit short and I'm only 5'2". September 13, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great, Cute Skort! Love this skort! Great for warm summer days, walking around, hiking, biking, etc. Waist sits low, which I like. I prefer last year's version of the Armadale skort, as the waist was even more roomy. Stretchy, comfy, and cute. I recommend this skort for active women and for those who like comfort. August 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfortable and great fit This is a great skort --the fabric, fit, and length are very comfortable. Also, really like the button closure, with no zippers. I have it in white and receive TONS of compliments on it. Also, washes well. August 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous fabric! I had bought a version of this skirt last year and it was large on me so I ordered a smaller size. It fits but seemed to run small. I love the fabric and length of skort underneath. Very cool and lightweight for a hot day. August 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by skorts are The best! Columbia makes the best skorts ever! This style and material is as good as all the previous ones I have purchased...have bought at least 6 per year. Keep bringing these to us women as they are comfortable, cool, and can be worn all day long without having to change all the time per activity! Of course the skort liner/shorts are my fave always...wouldn't you like that too? Fantastic for anyone! loved the colors this year. July 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for petite, runs a bit small I have had this skort for about a month and have probably worn it more than 10 times. I got the black and white cross-hatch color and I love it! I am 5'3", 130 lbs. and it hits mid-thigh. I normally wear a size 6 but in Columbia tend to wear an 8. I got this in an 8. July 31, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by too small Way too small seems to be almost a size 4. Too bad, it is a cute skort. July 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best kept secret for style & comfort I longed for a great fitting skort for the hot summer days and stumbled across these skorts I saw them and decided to order them thinking if I don't like them i would return them no promblem They came and WOW perfect fit great style awesome comfort I will live in my ARMADLE SKORT for the rest of the summer AWESOME !!!!!!!!!! :))))) buy them you will love them. July 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect everyday "little black skort" I love this skort! I first tried on a mutli print of the same skort at a store and fell in love. It is very figure flattering and so comfortable. Although it is called a fishing skort, I love it for everyday running around. I took it on our summer vacation and it was a bit more dressy than the average short and it kept me cool. The short part of the skort kept my legs from rubbing together and chaffing with all of the walking we did. I love this skort so much, I bought three in diferent colors! June 13, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is very comfortable for all types of activities. It fits petite women. June 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for I have searched high and low for a sport skort to wear playing tennis, running, walking or just hanging out around the house. This is it. It has pockets and is very slimming. By following the instructions for washing I found the material wears well and looks great. June 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product surprised me I bought this as a golf skort. It was PERFECT!! It was comfortable, breathable, had deep pockets for balls and tees, and was cute. Couldn't ask for anything better. I was lucky enough to try on first because they seem to run small. I would have been bummed to order my true size and had ended up with something much to small. Make sure to order up one size at least. Otherwise, fantastic product! May 31, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Need hips LOVE this skort, however you NEED hips to wear it.... so if you don't have hips, buy a different skort. The shorts underneath fit great and don't ride up. May 1, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by short skort The fit and size was good, but the length and the material was not quite what I expected. Very short. Material wrinkles easily. Washed once (in cold water) and it slightly faded. The logo on the thigh stands out and makes the skort a very "sporty" look. I wouldn't wear this skort out because of the length and the logo.
