Sizing notes

Inseam varies depending on style. Measurements are stated in inches unless otherwise indicated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but has some design flaws. Patagonia usually does no wrong, but the Strider Skirt may be the exception to my usual high opinion of them. I ordered this skirt because it was the only one I could find with the combination of boy short with a light weight skirt fabric. So many running skirts/skorts are made with a heavier stretch fabric and I really prefer ones made with traditional running short material. Anyway, my complaint is the liner shorts aren't snug fitting; in fact, they're quite loose and I'm convinced they're going to ride up like mad when I actually run in them. (I bought a small and I'm generally a size 6/28 in shorts/jeans.) Yet the skirt is super snug to the point of nearly being restrictive. Probably fine for running on the flats - but my passion is technical trails and the skirt binds right at the hip crease. Can't decide if I should give them a test run or just send them back.
