Rated 5 out of 5 by from womans casual skort This is so comfortable and you can wear it by the water or as another piece of your wardrobe. It is super flattering. The built in shorts are a added plus. I would strongly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved mine so much I bought another for my Daughter! I have purchased two of these for myself and LOVE them. My daughter needed something she could wear for dog shows that would allow her to move freely and still look like she was dressed up. This skirt is perfect! It is super comfortable and we both wear them everywhere! Camping, errands, dinner... perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Material ruins easily I wore one day and the rear side created acorn balls as if I had it for years and it was wearing out. I am very sad as it is water resistant and water wicked immediately and the style is so great looking for all shapes and sizes I believe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a hike I rarely write reviews, but this skort is incredible. It’s comfortable and cute, made of durable material. It’s modest, yet stylish. I love wearing it for day hikes and river romps with my German Shepherd. When she shakes water all over me, I simply wipe it off and keep going. Can’t say enough good things about this product. Actually purchased 3 more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime Casual Skort I love this skort. I wan't sure about wearing a short shirt, but it is so comfortable. It's like wearing shorts but more comfortable! The wide waistband is great and allows it to be worn easily on the waist or hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skort! Stretches, keeps shape, looks great Love everything about these skorts. Inner shorts stay in place and are comfortable and light. Outer fabric is stretchy enough without losing shape. The adjustable ties at the side allow you to change up the look a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is a great, comfortable skort. I've worn it for kayaking, golf, hiking, and going to dinner afterwards, so it's a great trail to town and travel piece. You really can't go wrong. I'm 5'2'', 110 lbs. I ordered the XS. When it sits on my waste, the skirt comes to mid-thigh, but can be pulled down to appear longer.
Date published: 2018-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all-around wardrobe staple. Purchased this to use as a multi purpose wardrobe staple: travel, golf, hiking, dressier when shorts are inappropriate. Beautiful, non wrinkle fabric, great fit either with tied shirring or without the ties and worn straight at the side seams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Skort EVER! I love this skort so much I bought one last year and then four this year. I like how the length is adjustable because I like to be cool with short shorts, but I don't have the body type to pull them off. This skort is the best of both worlds. I can make it short when I want to be as cool as possible but still look stylish and not all bunched up around my legs. The cut is flattering. And I can make it longer to be a little more appropriate for an evening out. The durability is fantastic for hiking (obviously if you don't care if your legs are covered), and I LOVE to wear these fishing when I know I will be wading and don't have to worry about bugs. The shorts liner is very comfortable. Out of ALL the styles I have tried, love this one the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Skort! This skort is the best! It's perfect for any occasion - walking the dog, hiking, or just something to throw on when you need to run errands. I like that I get to choose how scrunched I want the sides to be and that there is a little bit of fashion going on. It is an easy wash (just air-dry for longer usage) The only possible change I would like to see is the shorts inside being a tad longer - I ordered a size L and I'd love to have a little more short coverage underneath! But still love this product and ordered another color!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia anytime casual skort I saw this on a passerby and thought it looked so cute and complimentary, with the little ties on the side. I had to ask where the woman bought it and she told me "Columbia". Came home and ordered it in black. It has a wide elastic waistband which is perfect for me. I typically wear an 8 or 10 or medium, however, I do have a larger than normal waist, but I got a medium and its perfect. I would wear it to a casual lunch, likely not to dinner unless I was at the beach. The draw string on the sides can be pulled up if you would like a more flirty look, or just untie and let it hit normally, about 3-4 inches above my knee (I am 5'5"). In the past I have always regretted not ordering more of the same product when it fits so well and looks so good on. So I did order another color recently and they are mostly all I wear these summer days. The material is what it says....lightweight, water resistant (I could go to the beach, wear it in the water and it would dry very fast). Washes easily and hang dry....no worries. I am 70 and weigh 145, but still young at heart...its a perfect fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feminine AND functional Love this skort. I’ve bought it in three colors so far. The fabric repels water and doesn’t wrinkle. I live in Arizona and the skort is cool and sharp looking even on 108 degree days. I love that I can wear with dressier sandals and a nicer shirt for running errands, then can put on a performance top and running shoes for exercise. My only complaint in my thighs are a bit bigger and the undershorts ride up...but the outer skirt fits as it should with no stretching or pulling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sporty Skort I have this in blac and kahki and I absolutely love how they fit. You can dress it up or go hiking in them they are that comfortable.
Date published: 2018-05-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I love these skorts. They have a flattering style and are very functional. They are stretchy but do not get stretched out/baggy and do not wrinkle super easy like some of the others. Also if they get splashed with water, they dry fast and repel small amounts of water. Overall, love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Piece of Clothing It’s flattering, the colors are great, it wears well, fits well, and works for skirt or short occasions. I have it in four colors and am in love with it. Seriously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfortable Love the fabric, and look of this item. Ordered it for safari, but have wound up wearing it almost weekly with cute tee shirts. The construction is high quality and fabric very comfortable. Has built in "slide-type" shorts under the skirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the classic look of this skort! The feel of the fabric, the look of the skort and the fact I can wear multiple ways (there are functional gatherings on each side) is a plus! This skort (skirt with attached shorts underneath) is great for weekend wear with a little pair of sandals or sneakers. I'm thinking of other colors I would like to get it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely my go-to for school, meetings, and hiking I have really been loving the Columbia sports wear that I have been buying, so as the weather warms here in the PNW, having a skort for hikes and around town is my favorite piece of clothing. I absolutely love this one. I normally wear a large, but with winter and school weight I upsized. I have gone from a solid 12 to a solid 14. The XL fits super comfortably, although it is a little generous in the waist but it does not slip and of course there are no muffins because of it. The shorts are thin and soft and you barely notice them. I would prefer if they didn't ride up, because I wear skorts specifically to avoid chafing in addition to sitting on the ground. That is my only complaint. But the shorts are so lightweight and soft that they don't bind at all. I am going to order a large and see if there is a big difference. Love this skort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect skort I love the skort. It fits perfect and it stays in place. My only draw back is the shorts on the inside feel short to me.
Date published: 2018-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the skort, would like deeper pockets This skort is so comfortable. The waist band doesnt roll or bind, and the look is slimming. I only wish the pockets were deeper for a smart phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute when you try it on - but shorts ride up! Unfortunately, I am not one of those lucky women blessed with "thigh gap" - instead, I get "chub rub." While the skort is adorable and was flattering when I first tried it on when I walked outside the inside shorts kept riding up - making my thighs uncomfortably rub together and chafe. It's a shame because the price was so reasonable. I won't be wearing this again.
Date published: 2018-05-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this skort! I will be wearing this all summer! Nice material and the inner shorts do not ride up like other brands I've tried. The waistband is comfortable and you can really move in this skort! For reference, I'm 5'9' 130 lbs. and purchased a size small. Normally a size 4 and the fit is perfect. Washes well, no issues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this skort~ When I decided to move to Mexico, I was unsure what I would need. I brought shorts and several types of skorts. Now I own 3 of Anytime casual skort, and a couple of cColumbia dresses. I look pulled together regardless of the heat, rain, time of day. I love the products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome skort!!! When they say, "anytime casual skort" - It's the TRUTH!!!! I LOVE THIS SKORT! Fits perfect, form fitting but sporty, love the side ties to give it a little more sass! Comfortable!!!! Washes like a champ(I hang it to dry) and NO IRONING! You just can't beat this skort. Dress it UP or Down.. You decide. I want them in EVERY COLOR!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy for travel, Comfy easy wear and multi use clothing itme Skort is super comfy, easy wear, great soft packable fabric. Perfect for travel wear as good for shopping, out for dinner as easily as on the trails for hiking or walking and site seeing.. Pockets are a bit shallower then I’d like as my phone would fall out but works for other small things. (Chapstick, tissue etc) Love the neutral color and washes very well. Sized a bit large but okay. (I’m 5’7”, 145 lbs, athletic build and medium is okay small probably would have been better as when I hike clothes stretch and get loose) overall I’m happy and I’d buy this skirt again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from who wears short shorts? Poor design choices... There is almost no point to the sewn-in shorts because the elastic doesn't stop them from riding all the way up! Bought them for golfing, unlikely to wear them for that purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To Skort for Everything! Love, love, love this skort. I can wear this into the office with a pair of flip flops on casual Friday, or I can dress it up with a pair of classy sandals. I can then switch it up and throw on my hiking boots and hit the trails. These skorts are great travel companions. Just roll them up and off you go! Love they have decided to come out with more colors. For an even better fix, I have cut out those annoying string ties on the sides. I cannot stand them. So that is an easy fix for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable AND cute! I bought one of these (size M - true to size but forgiving) before a trip to the Bahamas, and ended up getting two more after the vacation! The built-in shorts are beyond comfortable - not to mention practical - and the material is soft. Love the side drawstring for added character. Bring on the warm weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form, Function and Fashion I love Columbia's skorts - all of the freedom of shorts and all of the fashion of a skirt. They go from trail to casual social gatherings with ease. The fit is very flattering, allowing for freedom of movement without worry or discomfort. The fabric feels terrific and dries very quickly, whether your adventures include water sports or simply inclement weather. The quality is outstanding and I expect that, like my other well-loved Columbia skorts, this will be in regular rotation for years to come.
