Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful surprise! A stylish Skort and very functional! I love Skorts . I recently purchased my first Columbia Skort in Vail Colorado. I love the fit and look so much I went on-line to check for more colors. I was able to order two more in different colors and was delighted. The fit is true to size, functional for hikes, gym or to dress up if needed. Now, I would love to see the designers produce a good looking 2-in -1 combination Skort and Tight in this line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking sport skort Nice skirt. Seems to run a bit large. Under shorts have a tendency to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect skort I absolutely love this skort! It had been years since I had worn one and bought the khaki one on a whim, loved it so much, I ordered the black one! I got size medium and it fits like a glove. Honestly, these are the most comfortable items in my closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to run around all day I really like how light this is. I am on the older side so I make it as long as I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skirt This is the sweetest skirt in columbias great fabric. The legs do ride up but that isn't a big deal since everything is covered and the pant material is very giving. I'm 5 feet, 145 lbs and a medium is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have 3 colors! I love these so much, I bought them in 3 colors! They fit great, dry easily, good for sports as well as going out. My only wish is that the inner shorts were a wee-bit longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but... I love this skort except for the ties on the sides keep coming undone. Other than that it is very comfortable and I would definitely recommend:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL I am in love with this skort! I have 2 so far. It is so comfortable and can be super casual or dressed up nicely. It's my new favorite thing. I have two other skorts ive had for 10 years that Columbia doesn't make anymore that I love too and I'm still wearing those. Columbia makes wonderful products!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect black skirt This skirt can stand up to any little black dress, the most perfect thing now in my closet to wear to a variety of things. Cute, sporty and comfortable. Sides can be adjusted for length it washes well. Also very flattering. I love this skirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skort I'm not a skort fan but really like this one. lightweight and with a little fancy flair - it dresses up great but can also just be an every day piece too.
Date published: 2017-07-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I recommend Comfy although you have to pull the shorts down every once in a while.
Date published: 2017-07-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great fit & comfort -- ties on the side are silly I bought this skort because of the many great reviews. Like most Columbia skirts, it's super comfy and a great fit. That said, for someone who likes simple clothing, the bunching & ties on the side are pretty silly looking. They remind me of the trends in the early 90s when I was a kid. A+ for quality, but design leaves something to be desired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome skort...please change the shorts under. Love this! Love the wide waistband and the material. The one thing I wish was different was the length or the thickness of the shorts underneath. They tend to ride up.
Date published: 2017-06-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One in each color, please! This skirt is amazing. There length is nice and the fit is incredible. It doesn't fit awkwardly, which happens with some skorts.
Date published: 2017-06-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, well made, nice fabric I'd love more color options and 2 separate lenthgs. You had this available last season as a non-skort that hit right at the knees and it was perfect. As I go from active to casual dress up, I'd love to have this length and a longer length (top of knees) style available. Love this product but think you could sell so many more with more color options and 2 length options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel piece I bought this skort for sailing trips. My friend was wearing one and it seemed the perfect piece for both sailing and going ashore to shop or sightsee. A must have piece for the active woman!
Date published: 2017-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome skort I have this in 2 colors now and love them both. Much more versatile and attractive than shorts. Lightweight, quick-drying, perfect length. Love!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this skirt! This skirt is functional and fun. I was looking for an alternative to shorts for a vacation hike and this definitely fits the bill. It is very comfortable and easy to move around in.
Date published: 2017-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Skort! I love UPF50 skorts, and this is one of my favorite offerings from Columbia. Bought in black, like the ruching and bows, which are cute but not over-the-top. Easy to tuck a shirt into this without everything looking weird! It's also the right length on me (I'm 5'3") to feel cute without feeling too revealing or too matronly...hits at just the right length. Definitely give this one a try!
Date published: 2017-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite skort!! I love this skort. It is comfortable and functional. After a hot hike, my daughter was splashing around a beautiful creek and my skort was dry pretty quickly.
Date published: 2017-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my purchase! I am so pleased to wear this skort, finding it so soft and stretchy, ideal for active movement or just lounging. There's something about the quality of the fabric that makes this skort SO COMFORTABLE. This will absolutely be a "go-to" clothing piece.
Date published: 2017-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Skort EVER! This is honestly one of the best skorts out there. The fabric is wonderful and you can definitely either dress it up, or dress it down....works both ways! I typically buy a small for my size, but I could only find this in XS. I tried it on and it fit perfectly! I read another comment where the ties on the side bothered the person. I don't have that problem at all. The odd time they'll come undone, but other than that I don't feel them and they aren't bothersome. Definitely worth buying!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color This particular color looks navy to me online but it's actually more of a country blue in person.
Date published: 2017-05-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyday skort I like this skirt. The fit is good. Only concern is the ties that hang on sides. I would have given item 5 stars but the ties are a little uncomfortable. May just need to get use to them.
Date published: 2017-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Color and Fit! This is the most comfortable and fashionable skort I own (and I have several from other major brands). The length is perfect and it looks nice enough for office casual if you pair it with a blouse. Perfect for summer.
Date published: 2017-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for tall girls! I wanted a longer swim skirt to wear to the pool, but I am 5'10" so all normal bathing suit skirts are really short on me. This skort is just perfect! Long enough to feel comfortable going anywhere, not just the pool. Hits about 4-6" above my knees. Very pleased and can't wait to wear it this summer!
Date published: 2017-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I love this skirt. Super Comfortable and looks good. I can wear to work, golfing, hiking or pretty much any activity. Nice pockets. You can wear leggings underneath and it all works. Fits good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite skirt ever! I absolutely love this skirt! It is so comfortable and classy and still maintains a chic and flattering silhouette. I bought one in every color!
Date published: 2017-05-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comfortable skort I love skorts. Whilst I enjoy dressing like a lady, I'm not very good at behaving like one. Therefore skorts are just about perfect summer wear. My only tiny complaint is the drawstrings. They tickle my legs and feel like creepy crawlies. They are a cute style idea but not terribly practical.
Date published: 2017-04-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute and comfortable To start with, I love a skirt with hidden shorts plus some pockets. I do wish this skirt's pockets were more secure, but they're better than no pockets. I got the skirt in "red"—not a true red, alas, but it's nice to expand my fashion palette a bit. I love a short skirt that also manages to be comfortable, which is very much helped by the wide waistband and the secret shorts.

Date published: 2017-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my trip to Asia! I purchased this skort after reading travel blogs about how to deal with the heat and humidity in Southeast Asia. I honestly cannot say enough about the comfort of this wardrobe staple I wore it every single day of my two week trip and it was the hottest temperatures I have ever experienced and it held up to every activity that we did and I always felt more put together than with traditional cotton shorts. I will definitely be ordering more colors for future adventures

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy Skort This is a favorite for when I'm going out to run errands, and for an evening at the tiki bar for cocktails.... it is a little longer than some other Columbia skorts I have and I like that is has no buttons no zippers..just pull on. The waist band is wide and stays in place and the material of the skort is very soft to the skin and touch. I always like the adjustable side strings, so I can choose to be conservative with a little more coverage or sexy with the sides pulled up!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sooo comfortable i have decided i'm going to live in skorts this summer! i found this item in a store and tried it on, but i found a better deal on it ordering thru columbia. i like it so much i bought it in another color. now i have black and light gray which will go with everything. the wider waistband holds in what i don't like around my waistline and the length is both perfect and cute with the drawstrings on either side.
Date published: 2017-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I have wanted this skort for several years, and finally broke down and bought it! It will be perfect for summer days, plus the days where I will go from fishing directly into public. It fits perfectly.
Date published: 2017-03-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and flattering I purchased this skirt in Light Grey and Sunset Red. I had tried it on in store, so I already knew it was true sizing. It has a great length, not to short, which is important to me as I wear them to compete at Disc Golf and they look cute yet professional. Comfortable, smooth waistband sits fairly high, which I like because I don't have to fuss with it when I am moving around! Might buy more in the other sizes!
Date published: 2017-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait to use this skort! Have not used this yet, but plan to use it for some beach outings this vacation season. Absolutely love the fit and feel of this skort. I weigh about 170 and got a large and it fits perfect. Great length too. It came about 4, 5 inches from my knees. Just buy it!
Date published: 2017-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect addition to my active wear I am in love with these skorts! I ordered two after seeing a client wearing one. I thought it would be perfect for a trip I'm taking. I was looking for something to wear while taking tours that may call for us to hike some while also stopping for lunch. These Look adorable and extremely functional.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skort I really loved this skort, but the ties come out after a few washes. Disappointed that it didn't last - because it was a favorite!
Date published: 2017-01-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for warm weather! I bought this skirt looking for something to wear in the warmer months that would be just as comfy as my running shorts but look more put together (think concerts at the local park, running errands around town or even a short unplanned hike!). However it came in handy this past weekend when we had snow and single digit temps and needed a layer over my running tights to keep my bum warm and dry on a run and playing in the snow. Didn't have a problem with the shorts bunching but I dont think they will be a substitute for running without the tights. The build of the shorts is more active-casual than long run/race worthy. Still a great purchase! Looking forward to wearing it in warm weather without the tights!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever! This is the cutest, most comfortable, most flattering skort EVER. I am enjoying wearing it at home (in SW Florida) and will take it with me on travels.
Date published: 2016-09-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit I'm 5'2" and a size 7/8... the medium fit perfectly in length and waist. I can't wait to use it on the golf course :-)
Date published: 2016-09-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skort - but could use improvement... I have this and another skort from Columbia. I also bought this for a gift for my friend and we both agree - these skorts would be AMAZING if they had one additional feature: the silicone on the inside of leg band to keep it from riding up. Please, please, Columbia, add this one teeny feature to your skorts! I saw other reviews noting the same issue. I have an Eddie Bauer skort that does have the no-ride shorts and they are fabulous.
Date published: 2016-09-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where are the shorts???? I bought these to avoid chafing. The shorts were not tight enough to stay down on my thigh. They rolled up, became uncomfortable, and I constantly had to reach up and pull down the shorts on my legs.
