Rated 5 out of 5 by the perfect skort My only regret is that it does not come in other colors..like navy, white January 6, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super cute! This is the first skort that I have purchased from Columbia. I ordered a 6 and it fit true to size. I am 5'4" tall, and weigh 127lbs. I wore it for Christmas with tights and a red sweater. It has a lot of stretch and is very comfortable! I golf and travel a lot, this will be a great addition to my travel attire! January 2, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect skort I read the previous reviews of how it runs a little small and went up one size and it fits perfectly. Can't wait until summer, comfortable and functional for any activity while looking well put together. December 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most Versatile and Perfect Skirt I have never loved a garment so much! The fit is perfect...love the little pocket. I will hike in this skirt, change my shoes and then go to the office, couldn't be better! December 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Travel Skirt Love this skirt. I brought it on a summer trip to Europe. Super comfortable and flattering. Only problem was was that the shorts ride up which is disappointing but it never felt uncomfortable. October 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice skort This skort is well made and it does run a bit snug and I am hoping it will stretch out a bit while wearing it. If you have some muffin top then I would suggest you go up a size. I got the black color and it is opaque; very light weight and very comfy. The short length is 17" and the attached shorts underneath are shorter and do not ride up and do not stick out from under the skirt. I really wish Columbia would write the lengths (how many inches long) their skorts, shirts, and dresses are as it would take the guess work and hassle out when ordering. Can be dressed up alittle or down. This skort is less expensive than the LL Bean brand skorts. September 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Go to item Love this skort. Great for traveling, shopping, outdoor activities. Cool comfortable, non-binding and the perfect length for my over 60 legs. I can count on Columbia to carry my size and fit. Just wish this came in khaki color! I love this skort so much that I have 2 in black. September 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Women's Skort is Just Right I love these skorts. They look so nice and are so comfortable. I highly recommend. September 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great style This skort was everything I hoped for. The fabric was soft, the length was as long as I wanted. I was very happy with this skort. I wanted to get more but I already purchased the two colors that were available. Great buy! September 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect length Love my skirt, it's not too short like lots of them.. August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy, stylish, practical - what more could I want! This cute skort is perfect when I want the convenience of wearing shorts, but desire a little dressier appearance. I find it very comfortable - stretchy in all the right places. The fabric is soft, yet strong and lays nicely. Great fit. Great skort! I could live in it all summer. I guess I should buy another one in a different color... :) August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by just right skort I know the sizes run a little small so the skort fit just right for me. Theskort is perfect for all activities, biking, golfing and looks great at the same time. August 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Woman's skort I bought two of these skirts and absolutely love them. They fit well and are super comfortable. At first I wondered if the shorts underneath would be too hot or cumbersome. They are neither. Great to wear on the golf course,bike or trail. August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this skirt. I am 5 foot tall and 115 lbs and I got a size 6. It is a little big but very comfortable. I have worn it for work and camping. This skirt is great for both. August 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by casual skirt great light weight material. runs small. will definitely be looking to purchase more in the future. August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable and versatile I am 60 and and found these skorts to be not only comfortable to wear, but also stylish and suitable for any age group. I wore them on a very hot day being outside all day and loved them. They didn't show any wrinkles. They are sporty for casual wear but yet can be dressed up with a nice top. I will wear this to work as a teacher - perfect for getting on the floor with young kids. I would love to buy more in different colors if they were available. I'm between a size 10-12 and went with the size 12. It fits great. It has a pull waist cord if I should decide to get down to a true size 10. If you're trying to decide between 2 sizes I would go with the larger. I will get a lot of use from these skorts and definitely recommend them. July 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect casual skort I love this skort and have two of them now. The length is perfect for me because I don't like too short skorts (5'1", 115 lbs). I wear this skirt for casual days and for hiking. As a hiking skort it's quick drying and very breathable. I don't get too hot when wearing it and it doesn't bunch up or feel too tight in areas. The only thing I would improve is adding some rubber grippers (like on bike shorts) to keep the inner short from riding up when hiking. July 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by go to casual summer wear This is the perfect piece! A bit dressier than shorts, lightweight, comfortable and quick dry. Camping or the grocery store, works for me- I ordered up a size for fit- waistband is adjustable. July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! The skirt runs a little tighter than my other Columbia skorts but this wasn't a problem for me as I'm 5'1" and about 120 lbs. It's a "to go" everywhere skort. July 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Skort, Runs Super Small Thank you for everyone who wrote reviews about the Skort running small. I ordered it 2 sizes larger than I might have otherwise & it fit perfectly. I love it so much I am ordering more. This is, to me, the perfect combination skirt/short. I am in love with this Columbia product. Well done! June 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chic and practical I live in NW Portland, at the base of Washington Park. We walk everywhere. Often we will hike up to the rose garden, and then walk downtown for a movie. The skirt is a perfect skirt to keep casual or throw a sweater or wrap on and dress it up! I bought all three colors. May 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Right Skort lives up to its name! It fits great and is soooo comfortable. I love it! May 18, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by fit I usually wear 6 or an 8. I ordered an 8 because you said it fit slightly smaller. It fit much smaller! April 29, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Weird waistline I specifically ordered this skort because it has a drawstring waist. I'm pretty thin, and it seems like everything is too big in the waist for me. The problem is the two points of the drawstring are several inches apart, not close together where it buttons as you would expect. So if you need to draw it up to tighten the waist, it pouches out in the front. Plus the string cut rather uncomfortably into the abdomen. Major design flaw to me, I sent it back. Also note, I usually wear a size 4 but ordered a 6 based on other reviews that it ran small. It does. Even the 6 was rather snug through the derriere, with the waist being overall bigger. April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 'JUST RIGHT SKORT' I haven't had a chance to wear this skort yet because it is still winter; however, I love it. It is dressier looking and feels so comfortable on. I can't wait to wear it as I walk the El Camino in northern Spain this September. The quality is very good and the sizing is perfect. March 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gem of a skort! Unlike the latest Armadale design with its quirky metal closures that pull the fabric, this gem of a skort has one front metal snap and zipper that stays put. The fit for me (size 12) is comfortable and true to size. The length, which is above the knee, and cut is appropriate for the office and can be dressed up or down for weekends. I have the black and will be buying the other colors but would love it in navy, white and pastels. February 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality skort I was looking for a skort, and this one is great. It's hard to find skorts this season that aren't super short or have some weird design - I'm a very young 40, but I haven't worn mini skirts since the 90's. This is a little shorter than I'd like (I'm 5'6" and 130# and it hits about 2" above my knee when standing) but since there are shorts attached I haven't gotten very self conscious about it. The fabric is super forgiving, resists stains, and is lightweight and dries quickly. Good for physical activities or just running around town. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with this skort. Comfortable, great length, can wear for work (business casual) or play. Runs small, especially compared to Columbia Just Right Pants, which I also love. July 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Skort I love this skort! The quality is great, the material will launder very well. It is just what I was looking for! I used the size chart associated with the skort. Taking my measurements and comparing them with the chart gave me a very good fit. I recommend doing this as the resulting size is not what I usually get. This is an excellent alternative to shorts and I will take them on an upcoming trip to Europe. Shirts look good tucked in as well as left out. I bought the black and there is a dark gray. I wish Columbia made them in other colors. July 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Skort Columbia as gotten it right on so much of their womens active wear, this is another example! I get compliments frequently. July 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable skort These skorts are designed well and fit well. The only reason for the 4-star rating is the shorts ride up on the inner thighs all the time! Why not make the shorts under the cute skirt more like running or yoga shorts so they stay up better?? If you did, I would buy more and recommend them to family/friends more. Thank you for your time. July 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy Skort This versatile skort is perfect for golfing, side zip pocket holds balls comfortably. I usually wear a size 8 but the 10 fits fine, with just a little room. In general, it's hard not to use it as daily go-to apparel, please make it available in more colors! July 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Fit! Went ahead and purchased next size up since reviews said product runs a little small and it is the perfect fit and look! Nice, light weight material. It's the skirt I have been looking for all summer! Tried to go back and order in different color but they were all out :( July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best skort ever This is my favorite skirt I have ever ownedI I love it so much I bought a second black one. Perfect for golf or to just wear around. I love how light weight it is! Great for packing! July 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One great skort! This is an extremely comfortable skort. The material is soft and stretchy and the length is just right for me - a little longer than some skorts, but it may not be right for those who prefer their skorts very short. The shorts lining is light and soft and does not ride up. The material is stretchy so in my size, the waist is probably larger than I'd like but you can use the internal drawstring to tighten things up if necessary. However, since I'm losing some weight, I've ordered another in the next size down as well. Still can wear both comfortably. July 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for! This is a great skirt. Very comfortable. Not too short. Nice stretchy material. I highly recommend it. I bought both colors and glad I did. June 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect product I prefer to wear shorts to any other type of clothing. This garment moves with your body. I am a very active, petite, 58- yr old woman. I took this skort to Scandinavia & wore it everywhere. By changing accessories, shoes, & shirts, it was worn in a church service, out to a classy restaurant, in museums, & shopping. I went jogging, and swam in it in ocean beaches. I went online to get another and was terribly disappointed in the color selection! Where is khaki, navy, red, or some other colors!!! June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I love this skirt! I bought it for walking in the summer months. I hate wearing shorts at my age. I'm over weight so shorts have a tendency to creep up in the inside of my thighs. I'm constantly pulling them down. The skirt is a modest length. I can wear it to the office as well as while exercising and still not expose my veiny & cellulite thighs! Like many others, I wish it came in more colors. I would buy them all! June 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wear Almost Daily My legs look much better in skirts than shorts but I hate the fact that my legs rub together in skirts. The perfect solution? Skorts! There are many skorts out there but these are by far the best. Buy them. You wont be disappointed. June 18, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by short sewn on inside out? I received the skort today and loved it immediately except then I looked at the construction: the raw seam of the short part is what would be seen if the skirt blows up and the short is exposed. The nice "outside -seam" of the short is against the body. Is this how it is suppose to be? I am returning. June 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just right! This skirt was just as advertised. Perfect I every way. I wish it came in more colors. April 29, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Okay, but had to return I really liked this skort. I loved the color. But it fit just a little tighter than I'd wanted (and I'd already ordered it one size up) plus it was shorter than I anticipated (which I'm sure is my own fault because it's probably on the website how short it is). So, I had to return it unfortunately. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect I am a big fan of skorts and this one is perfect. It's just the right length, fits great and looks wonderful. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super cute skort I am 5'6 130 lbs and usually wear a 4 in almost everything and I had to buy a 6 because its small. The 6 fits very well and the inner shorts aren't super constricting which I love. I wish this came in other colors! April 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Skort Love this skort. Material is light weight and comfortable. I have had several compliments on it. I read the reviews and noticed that the comments stated the skort ran a little small. I usually wear size 16, so I ordered a 18 at it fit perfectly. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this skirt I bought two more of this skirt because I loved the first one so much. It's super comfortable - the fabric is soft and lightweight - perfect in the summer. I use it hiking, biking, strolling, gardening, or just coffee-housing. A friend of mine bought herself two also after seeing mine and I have had strangers approach me to ask me where I got mine from. I only wish it came in more than two colors. It's also easy to care for- I wash and wear it - never has shrunk or changed form when putting through the dryer although I mostly line-air dry. March 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and durable This is an amazing skirt. I bought it to wear while refereeing girl's lacrosse and ended up wearing it for everything else. I can run in it comfortably, but I can also throw it on for a bike ride or a dinner out. Very versatile. Like other reviewers, I would buy it in any color they make it in ... wish there were more summery colors, as I would live in this skirt all summer. February 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous Fit! Please, please make more of these. They are great on the golf course or whatever you are doing outside. Wears well, washes & dries quickly. September 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Skort Nice fabric, comfortable shorts, not too short for adult women. Would like front pockets and maybe some jazzy colors. Fits to size. March 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic travel item. I can't believe I finally found a skort that fits my pear shape. The drawstring in the waist helps. The fabric is very light weight so this skort will take up almost no room in my bag making it perfect for travel. The shorts are long enough that they won't ride up, but not so long that they show. The fabric is very stretchy (but doesn't look like it) so these can even be worn bicycling or hiking. It looks nice enough to wear out to a nicer restaurant but can also be worn casually - again making it the perfect travel item. I normally wear a small and the size 4 fits great. February 27, 2014
