Skhoop Gretchen Windstopper Mini Skirt

rated 4 of 5 stars SKHOOP's Gretchen may draw you in with its good looks, but it's not a skirt to take lightly. A flattering insulated skirt, the Gretchen provides an extra layer of warmth in the backcountry and incorporates side stretch panels for easy layering and unrestricted movement. This skirt is worn comfortably hiking, snowshoeing, backcountry nordic skiing, and around town. While I could certainly survive in the backcountry without it, I've found myself bringing it along, unwilling to part with it, on many… Full review

The North Face Class V Trunk

rated 5 of 5 stars I own four pairs of these shorts. I'm a big fan. These shorts fit true to size and have a nice built-in liner. It's nice and comfortable, unlike the liners of shorts from some other brands that I've worn. The shorts rest a couple of inches above the knee, and they are comfortable when moving. They work well in activities ranging from running to swimming. A drawstring helps keep the shorts tight in the water. The shorts dry pretty quickly—maybe 15 minutes in the sun or 30-45 outside of the sun. Full review

Cordillera Chamonix Insulated Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Winter gear, cold weather, insulates your outdoor garments. I bought this insulated skirt at Fred Myers. REI also sells them. Full review

Purple Rain Adventure Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Great skirt for hiking, backpacking, around the ranch, and around the office. Pockets are great for a smartphone. Material is lightweight, quick drying, and soft. Ideal for walking, hiking, running, and backpacking for men and women. The Purple Rain skirt is a nearly perfect design for hiking and backpacking. As a male user, it hangs well, feels good against the skin, and drys quickly when wet. The flare is excellent for leg movement, offering considerable range in stride. The pocket design is really… Full review

Royal Robbins Traveler Stretch Short

rated 4.5 of 5 stars So many great features combined into one awesome pair of shorts. The Royal Robbins Traveler Stretch Shorts are now my go-to shorts for numerous activities. I received these shorts, along with several other items, as a prize for being Trailspace's “Reviewer of the Month”.One of the first things that I noticed when I first started inspecting these shorts was the quality. They are well made and have great stitching. Stylish enough to pair with a nice shirt and wear out in town and versatile enough… Full review

JWalking Designs Mad About Plaid Active Skirt/Kilt

rated 4 of 5 stars An excellent skirt/kilt for MEN and women hikers and backpackers. Nice length. Like the blue/green plaid colors. This is a really comfortable, well-built walking, hiking, and backpacking skirt/kilt for MEN and women. As I wear this more around home, in my home-office, and while working outside on the ranch, I am appreciating this skirt more and more. Purchased the "Mad-About-Plaid Blue/Green" women’s. Alison proportioned the material nicely top to bottom, providing a real range of motion not… Full review

Patagonia Men's Strider PRO Shorts

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light but protective short that gets out of the way, yet lets you carry tons of stuff. Fit I will say it up front, I love the Strider Pro shorts. When trail running or hiking up steep hills I love the fit of them. The 5" inseam means they do not pull on your quads when going up steep terrain. They have a split on the side to give you extra freedom of movement while covering you up well enough. For me a 5" inseam is perfect. The waistband is a good elastic, but also has a lace that you can tie in… Full review

Patagonia Nine Trails Skirt

rated 4 of 5 stars A quality garment suitable for multiple uses, particularly watersports. The undershorts have a permanent anti-microbial treatment that really does keep odors at bay. If already accustomed to wearing skimpy garments for workouts, the Nine Trails skirt will be a cute and welcome addition to your wardrobe. The short skirt does turn heads (since it's not always obvious that the black undershorts accompany it), so it's not for those lacking a healthy dose of self-confidence. On the other hand, it also… Full review

Sport Kilt Men's Hiking Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Traditional Scottish kilt styling in material suited for trekking, hiking, and walking. Material dries quickly. Cooler and reduces chaffing. Wear at home or on the trail. Great for men and women. Enjoy wearing my Sport Kilt Hiking Kilt. It is a neat design with a wrap with velcro waist, traditional pleated kilt. Size XL with 18" hem weighs 320 g (11.3 oz). Customized mine with pockets, belt loops, and sown in pleats. The pockets easily hold an iPhone 6. Glad it is a skirt design, where I get to… Full review
