Summary

Great skirt for hiking, backpacking, around the ranch, and around the office. Pockets are just right for a smartphone or headlamp. Material is lightweight, quick drying, and soft.

Ideal for walking, hiking, running, and backpacking for men and women.

Pros

  • Lightweight 140 g
  • Quick dry
  • Pockets on side
  • True skirt—no brief or short attached
  • Male or Female wear

Cons

  • Limited colors
  • Length with waistband is a bit long
  • No belt loops or drawstring

The Purple Rain skirt is a nearly perfect design for hiking and backpacking. In size "L", the weight is 140g (4.9 oz) and the length is 40.6 cm (16 in) below the yoga waistband.

As a male user, it hangs well, feels good against the skin, and dries quickly when wet. The flare is excellent for leg movement, offering considerable range in stride.

The pocket design is really neat, with a velcro closed outer pocket, and an open slip in pocket between the outer pocket and the overall skirt. A big plus is that this is a true skirt, rather than a skort, allowing you to wear, or not wear, something beneath.

To feel more secure on a male, the only wish is that the yoga waistband had a drawstring in it or had belt loops to give that little more firm fit at the waist. Without belt loops, the skirt hangs from the 4" yoga band, and the elastic in the yoga band is not tight. However, when using my backpack hip belt, all is good.

Length is nice hitting me just above the knee, which is where I like it for walking.

Can highly recommend this walking skirt for MEN and women. Mandy has a superior product and offers the best, personalized customer service anywhere!

Love my skirt! The pockets allow for hands-free, purse-free activities. Super comfortable, wears well (can take a beating) and washes up great.

As far as active skirts go, I haven't found anything that works this well (and looks this cute!).

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Quick dry
  • Flattering

I love this skirt! The material is lightweight and comfortable. I wear it backpacking and on my rafting trips as it dries very quickly. It falls at a great height right above the knee.

I would recommend this product to anyone that needs a skirt for outdoorsy applications.
