Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inside liner is a problem Everything about this skort screams comfort except the inside panty/shorts liner. It has no elastic in the legs, so there is nothing to keep the panty liner from slowly climbing into an area that is not comfortable at all. You must constantly pull the liner down from where it has climbed. I am so disappointed and when purchasing my next skort, I will make sure the inside panty or shorts are secure and long enough not to do any uncomfortable climbing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Skort Ever This skort is very comfortable and has PLENTY of pockets. Warm enough to wear in the colder digits but breathable and short enough to wear when it warms up by midday too. This skort also works well when worn over light to medium-weight leggings or yoga pants. Shorts in the skort bunch up a little, but not too uncomfortable. Drawstring is more ornamental than useful and skort fits very well. There are also some useful smaller pockets the lighter weight items in the shorts themselves. Love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and practical! I have several friends who are big fans of skorts and they are lining up to buy this one too after my rave review of this one. Great technical fabric, lots of pockets, and super comfy with stretchy form fitting shorts underneath. I am a light packer but this is coming with me on my next vacation for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PERFECT skirt I can't stop wearing this skirt. Ridiculously comfortable, flattering and practical. Finally washed it last night--cold water, dry flat--and it's as perfect as it was when I got it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for multisport use and errands. While I find that the shorts tend to not stay put(they need grippers or something), they are light enough to not be a problem even when they creep. This skirt is so comfortable that I went back and bought another. Works for biking (casual only, remember the creeping!), rollerblading, walking, etc... as well as the farmer's market and other chores. I've also worn it on date night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy I wore this on a sectional hike of the AT. Was comfortable and I could move quite freely. Loved the shorts underneath as I didn't even feel like they were there. Many compliments by other female hikers. Loved the pockets. The only negative is the thickness of the top of the skirt took longer to dry overnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable On cooler days I wear this skort with tights. On warmer days, with bare legs, this item is cooling. It's fun to wear. I don't have any trouble with the attached shorts riding up. The external drawstring (not internal as described in the 'details') is superfluous because the waist is stretchy and stays up on its own. I tie it into a loose, simple knot so it doesn't look as 'knotty' as in the picture. I'm happy with my purchase.

When you wear this skirt do you wear underwear too? or just treat the shorts like underwear? 

Asked by: Liketokeepdry
The decision to wear underwear or not is solely based on personal preference.
