I absolutely love this skort to wear for casual, dress it up, golf, tennis. Great pockets, very comfortable. The inner shorts are the perfect material, more like underwear then shorts underneath. Not sure why so many reviews say this skort runs small, I wear an 8 and ordered a 10 which is OK, but a little big around the waist. A few reviews said it is too short, I think it is a bit too long. I am 5'7", and an athletic 150lbs, 42 years old. Pockets on this are wonderful also! Very flattering fit in the front and back. Again, love it!!!!!!!!!!!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this for hiking as an alternative to shorts. I love them, the only thing is climbing over trees that might be over the trail, you really have to hike it up to get over but that's a rare occurrence.
I now have three pair of these and two are size six, one is an 8. I like how the 8s feel around my middle. I'm 5'4 and 136-140....but even at 144 the 6s are ok, maybe just a bit more comfy with the top button undone. I wear these all the time, hikes and just weekends around the house.
I would recommend this product.

I currently own two of these skorts and love them. One was purchased three years ago and the second, less than two years ago. I purchase the third one to take on a cruise. I was disappointed that the sizing and length of skort had changed. The size was smaller now than in what I currently own. The length is short enough for a tennis skirt. These skorts were a stable in my summer and vacation wardrobes. Golf, luncheons, running errands, or zip lining. Please bring back old style.
I do not recommend this product.

Other REviews suggested that I order this skirt two sizes bigger. I did this and I am swimming in it. I would not order it two sizes bigger maybe one but probably will order my true size next time.

I am a very faithful Columbia customer and have purchased dozens of skorts, and both women's and men's golf/fishing shirts over several years.
One skort I have that I love is the Titanium Omni shade and it seemed that the Silver Ridge was the closest that was available now. The Titanium was great fabric, no wrinkles so perfect for travel and a good length. The Silver Ridge fabric is too lightweight, wrinkles terribly and the length is not really suitable for anyone over 20 something.Bring back the Titanium so I can buy 10.
I do not recommend this product.

I am a physical educator and bought this skort for work. The skort is light weight and keeps me cool outside all day. the inner short is stretchy and comfortable. The length is perfect for me. I am shorter (5'1") and the hem falls mid thigh - not too long and not too short. I love that I can wear this skort with a polo shirt and look professional with all the functionality of wearing shorts. I bought the green one and I also purchased the "fossil" one.
I would recommend this product.

I used this product on many 90 & 100 degree days and it was very helpful at keeping me cool. Of course it didn't hurt that I had an omni-freeze shirt and a fan too. I used the size chart to order the perfect size, taking into account both hips and waist.
I would recommend this product.

I read the reviews and thought going up one size would be enough. It WASN'T. I usually wear a 6 sometimes 8 when things run small. I ordered an 8 and need a 10! It is shorter than most skirts this style for the age of woman they are marketing. I love the style and concept of the skirt, but disappointed it is too tight and too short. I would recommend ordering 2 sizes larger than normal.
I would recommend this product.

Normally wear a size 6, based on reviews ordered a size 10. Little large in the waist, good fit other than that. Would like it about an inch longer.

I have purchased this style for the last few years and I love the fit. However when I tried this new skirt on is was fitting the same as a size smaller (last years size). Also it fit lower on the hip and shorter in length. Took it back. I will say that Columbia's quality is very highly durable. I love most of their stuff so this was a disappointment.
I do not recommend this product.

Disappointed as been searching high and low for a skort that would fit s slim body. Take the back pocket design off and make the pant version les tight like and better material for skort and you would have a winner for slim people

This little skort is certainly comfortable and cute. I does run a size small, so I took everyones advice and ordered a size up. I seems to run small in the waist. The hip, thighs and butt stretch out throughout the day with wear...so keep that in mind when ordering. I can't tell if the Omni Ice really does what it says and keeps you cool since I haven't had any extreme weather yet.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this on a whim, but liked the comfort, functionality, and style so much that I bought another one in a different color. It runs a little small. I usually wear a 6-8 and ended up with a 10.

Last year I bought a gray Columbia skort that I ADORE and wear so much! I bought 2 of this item hoping it would be comparable. I bought the exact same size as my previous Columbia skort (which fits perfectly) and this item was a LOT smaller (too tight!). Also, the length of the skort is significantly shorter which I do not like. Disappointed overall.

I purchased two Silver Ridge Skorts last season in a beige color and loved them. I took them on a Greek cruise and to Italy in the hottest weather. I could dress them up with a drape neck top or wear them for hiking with a tee shirt. They were my go to skort of choice. They were unavailable in black until recently. I was so disappointed when they arrived as they are running about 2 sizes smaller than the ones I purchased last year. Same great fabric which keeps you so cool in extreme heat but alas, sized way, way differently. Please go back to your old sizing. I loved the fit and comfort of last year's garment.
