Pro's: cute, comfortable, great length, versatile, cannot tell that it's a skort.
Con's: HORRIBLE closure hooks (as noted in the other reviews) mine were so bad that they are ripping through the soft fabric and are close to falling out. A button would have been much better. I will have to repair it before I can wear it again, it will no longer stay closed. Which is highly disappointing...
I do not recommend this product.

I purchased this skort, because I already owned a similar one (black with white pattern) and really liked it. The material seems to wick really well in our Florida heat, doesn't wrinkle and is really comfortable. I also love that it has three pockets. Would love it if Columbia made this exact skort in several colors/patterns so I can get a few more of them!
I would recommend this product.

I practically lived in this skort last summer, with it being suitable to wear while walking (fast for exercise, not a simple stroll) or running errands. Having a pocket in which to put my phone is also a big plus. It's also nice that the skort isn't too short (I am 5'9")making inappropriate for my 50+ year old self. I generally wear a size 10, however, was more comfortable in a size 12 (thanks to a thick waist).
I would recommend this product.

How long is the skirt top to bottom? How long are the shorts underneath... the inseam? I have other skorts but the inseam is too short and they ride up and get bunched and irritated. I don't like to walk around reaching under my skirt to pull down my shorts.....

I have been wearing the Armadale skort for several years. I wear them a lot and they are great year round. They wear well, pack and wash up great, can't go anywhere without at least two colors. I would like to mention that the hook on the 2014 waistband was poorly placed and didn't stay hooked for me. I do like that the waistband is wider on the 2014.
Looking forward to a new color way or two in 2015.
I would recommend this product.

Really love this skort, but wish it didn't have the button & tab closure combination. It creates a funky wrinkle in the way it fits at the waist
I would recommend this product.

I own several Armadale skorts and love their versatility, quality and ease of care. However, this new "refreshed" design earns it a "fair" rating from me because of the double metal clasps which replaced one of the two closure buttons. From the get-go, the clasps have performed poorly. It's difficult to slide them closed; once you close the bottom one the top one is hard to close due to the close placement of one to the other. After a few minutes into my walk, the top one came undone. The previous Armadale skort had two closure buttons which were easy and fast to close. They didn't come undone and they didn't start tearing from the fabric. I never reviewed the previous design because they were perfect. Comfortable, easy care, quality material and look great with tights for those cool Southern California winters. Please, Columbia, consider a change back to buttons.
I would recommend this product.

bring back last year!

I agree 100 percent with Califmom. The metal clasp closure just doesnt work. Bring back the original 2 button closure! Loved this skirt, have several...but find myself choosing last year's over this years because it just doesn't stay fastened and clasp is tearing out of fabric.

Totally agree!

I totally agree with the metal clasp comment here. I have last year's version and I love that one! I was hoping to get more this year, but those metal clasps are horrible so I won't be buying. They don't allow the material to lie flat like with the buttons.
Please change back Columbia?
