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

Patagonia Baggies Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Great unisex hiking or running skirt. Skirt allows you what to or NOT to wear beneath for activity. Great baggies material with flat waistband plus drawstring. Baggie Skirt is one of the best new Patagonia products in a long time! This skirt is ideal attire for backpacking, hiking, running, trekking, and walking. It is my new morning striding bottom. Baggie skirt is perfect for working out on our ranch, sharing a morning cuppa, running errands, and computing in my home office. This product will… Full review

Patagonia Quandary Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Great fabric, nice cargo pocket, good fit, right length. Quandary Skirt’s fabric and style will win you over — soooo comfortable! It is a great walking, running, hiking, backpacking, trekking, town, work, home, and much more wardrobe addition. This skirt quickly became my regular for working in my home office, on the tractor cutting brush, during early morning exercise walking, and while enjoying lunch on the front porch. This skirt should attract women and MEN adopters for backpacking, hiking,… Full review

Marmot Hayes Cargo Short

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent hot weather hiking shorts. Wouldn't recommend them unless deeply discounted. The 34" waist was too small so I returned them for the 36" which I kept, but they are inconveniently too big. GREEN Olive. Full review
