Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable & Versatile This skirt has a comfortable fit in that I can wear it just bit below my waist with the inner liner fitting well. (For reference, I weigh 112 lbs.at 5 3"). The length falls about two inches above my knees. The inner shorts feel softy and silky. I can wear it to work or wear it backpacking making this skirt versatile. I have this skirt in black and blue. The ties on the sides are a bit awkward but I keep them bowed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional Great for work & to dress down to go on a hike, or out for supper, a walk on the beach. Very comfortable & easy care. Nice that you can put the sides up if you want to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this skort! I needed something a little bit dressier than shorts for an outdoor event. Comfort is very important to me so I ordered this skort after reading the reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised by how comfortable and neat this skort is. It was perfect for the event and definitely exceeded my expectations. I find myself wearing it much more than I ever thought I would. The material is fantastic and it still looks new after several washings. Excellent quality!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My go to skort Absolutely love this skort and have in all colors. Great for about town and traveling. The legs need to have better gripping as they ride up too easily. Pockets could also be deeper. If not for the legs I would have rated a 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! I am a nurse and the mother of a 7.5 yr old son. I tend to be busy and active around the house and town, so comfortable clothing is very important to me. This skirt is not only comfortable, it looks very nice as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Comfy! Love this skort! I purchased two colours - they are nice and stretchy. Only fault - I wish the inner short would stay put as they ride up while walking. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazing if it held together. The fit, style and concept: AWESOME! I wore it on vacation ,it was perfect until it was washed...once... then the top seam and both side seams unraveled..!! WHAT!! I have several shorts, tops and jackets from Columbia and have NEVER had this happen. I hike, camp, and kayak and my Anytime Outdoor shorts get abused. They are amazing. I was hoping this product would be the same quality.. I would give it a 5 star if it held together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to shorts Very functional. As with the ankle pants, I cut off the ties (i am 60 and don't want to look cute) and wear them as shorts. My second pairs. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this skort! I have four (gray, black, green and navy) and use them for everyday wear and especially for golf. The fit is perfect. I like the wide flexible waistband and the tapered fit (an A-line shape doesn’t look as flattering on me). I don’t care for the scrunch look of the draw strings on the sides, so I just cut them off.

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.

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.
