I got this in the wrong season, but paired with some thick tights, the skirt is adorable, and warm in the winter. The wicking does keep you cool, so summer months, when not wearing tights, you're not left sweaty in the skirt... Overall it's adorable, and comfortable, and a great buy!
I would recommend this product.

The fit and size was good, but the length and the material was not quite what I expected.
Very short. Material wrinkles easily. Washed once (in cold water) and it slightly faded. The logo on the thigh stands out and makes the skort a very "sporty" look. I wouldn't wear this skort out because of the length and the logo.

I bought this as a golf skort. It was PERFECT!! It was comfortable, breathable, had deep pockets for balls and tees, and was cute. Couldn't ask for anything better. I was lucky enough to try on first because they seem to run small. I would have been bummed to order my true size and had ended up with something much to small. Make sure to order up one size at least. Otherwise, fantastic product!
I would recommend this product.

Columbia makes the best skorts ever! This style and material is as good as all the previous ones I have purchased...have bought at least 6 per year. Keep bringing these to us women as they are comfortable, cool, and can be worn all day long without having to change all the time per activity! Of course the skort liner/shorts are my fave always...wouldn't you like that too? Fantastic for anyone! loved the colors this year.
I would recommend this product.

I had bought a version of this skirt last year and it was large on me so I ordered a smaller size. It fits but seemed to run small. I love the fabric and length of skort underneath. Very cool and lightweight for a hot day.

Love this skort! Great for warm summer days, walking around, hiking, biking, etc. Waist sits low, which I like. I prefer last year's version of the Armadale skort, as the waist was even more roomy. Stretchy, comfy, and cute.
I recommend this skort for active women and for those who like comfort.

Without trying it on in the store, I purchased the Armadale in white and was quite satisfied with the fabric and fit...until I looked at my backside in a mirror. The interior brief has a seam running crossways across the butt. It would have been perfect if no seam there. I suggest designers try to go for seamless rump. I try to avoid panty lines, and this became an odd version of that for my particular figure. I'll be returning it. Maybe this wouldn't be so visible in a print or darker solid color, or worn by another body shape, thus my giving it higher marks.
I would recommend this product.

After reading the reviews, I got an 8 (I am usually a 6 in jeans, skirts, etc). I would say this is on the small side even for a 6. I can do it up (just!) and it looks great, but I find the shorts underneath the skirt very, very tight. I have a skort from mountain hardware and it is like butter - wish the inner shorts were more like these. Perhaps I should have gone 2 sizes up, but with online purchasing it's hard to know... I will wear these and hope the inner short stretch.
I would recommend this product.

LOVE this skort, however you NEED hips to wear it.... so if you don't have hips, buy a different skort. The shorts underneath fit great and don't ride up.

I have searched high and low for a sport skort to wear playing tennis, running, walking or just hanging out around the house. This is it. It has pockets and is very slimming.
By following the instructions for washing I found the material wears well and looks great.
I would recommend this product.

I love this skort! I first tried on a mutli print of the same skort at a store and fell in love. It is very figure flattering and so comfortable. Although it is called a fishing skort, I love it for everyday running around. I took it on our summer vacation and it was a bit more dressy than the average short and it kept me cool. The short part of the skort kept my legs from rubbing together and chaffing with all of the walking we did. I love this skort so much, I bought three in diferent colors!
I would recommend this product.

I hesitated purchasing this skort because of the price, however, am quite pleased I did so. It is great for active wear, but also nice enough to do errands. I love the deep pockets and the little snap side pocket. I am glad I heeded the advice of other reviewers and ordered a size larger than I typically wear.
I would recommend this product.

I have had this skort for about a month and have probably worn it more than 10 times. I got the black and white cross-hatch color and I love it! I am 5'3", 130 lbs. and it hits mid-thigh. I normally wear a size 6 but in Columbia tend to wear an 8. I got this in an 8.
