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 inside of this skort is quite snug fitting and sweat wicking (which is great). The outside of the skort is a different fabric. It repelled water great but it was too big and kept falling down. If I had ordered a smaller size the inside would not have fit me. I sent it back because it's unwearable.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought this skort for golf because it looked like a nice, trim fit, is lightweight and the shorts part are more like leggings that won't bunch up under on a hot day. It worked beautifully though the leggings did ride up a bit (very hot day!) and the pockets were a little too deep for golf. Don't get me wrong, I love the pockets but may need to just use this skort for other uses, maybe not golf. I'll give that another try, though, on a cooler day.
I would recommend this product.

Love this skort. The material is soft and comfortable. It's sporty and yet cute. And to top it off, it doesn't wrinkle. Come out of the dryer and ready to wear. Perfect for a busy life.

A really cute skort, but it runs very small and I just didn't want to exchange for one size up to see how that was going to go. I'd just bought the Sun Chill'd skort, which is amazing, in fit and function so exchanging the Armadale skort just wasn't a priority. I recommend the skort, just know you should consider at least one size, if not two, larger.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the skort to allow me to ride my bike with my swimsuit on and look somewhat modest, stay cool, and not get any clothing caught in my gears or spokes. The black skort worked perfectly. The size 16 was good when it was dry but hung a little when it was wet so i also bought a 14; that worked a lot better. I was hoping that it would dry quickly but it stays wet, even a day later when I hang it on a towel rack. Would have liked it to be quick drying. It was perfect to wear as a swimsuit cover-up.
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.

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.

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.

I work in a marina and rent kayaks. This is perfect for everyday. I can be in the water teaching someone how to kayak one minute and at the bank next. No need to change. Looks good and is very functional.

Skirt was disappointing for me, I must not have read the copy closely on the fabric, it seemed way too flimsy for outdoor use. Also, the fit was small. I usually wear a 14 - I ordered this in a 16 because of the user comment. The 16 was still too small and too short for me.
I do not recommend this product.

I am 5 ft and the skort length is about how I would want my shorts to be. They are really cute and I like the flattering cut. They don't flare out into an "A" like some golf skorts, which I didn't want. The fabric is light, stretchy and comfy, and perfect for travel (will dry quickly). I can see how many reviews stated "size runs small." Although they fit me just right (and the stretchy fabric helps), I have other bottoms that are size 6 that are often larger. I think that this is closer to a size 4 in most other brands. The button was very loose and I had to resew it, hence the rating on quality.
I would want to get more of these skorts, and would love to see it in an expresso (dark) brown, and a "jeans" blue (i don't care for the bright blue).
I would recommend this product.

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.

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.

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.
