Patagonia Edge Win Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Super comfortable men's or women's walking skirt. Great men's or women's walking skirt, especially nice for men. Wear skirt size XL, which weighs 192g (6.7 oz) and has a 44.5 cm (17.5 in) side seam. Am 6'2", 225 lbs., pants size 38" / 32". When resting on my hips where I normally wear my pants, skirt is about 7.5 cm (3 in) above my knee—just right for striding. The TENCEL fabric feels great. Material is super soft, moves well with motion, and hangs nicely. Been wearing the skirt during morning… Full review

Zpacks Rain Kilt

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A Zpacks Rain Kilt is a great way to shave weight and still protect your lower half from getting drenched. It is a very simple, compact, ultralight garment with multi-use functions. Specifications: Regular Waist: 1.9 oz (54 g) / Fits up to 38" (97 cm) Large Waist: 2.1 oz (60 g) / Fits up to 50" (127 cm) Length: 27" (68 cm) Width when opened flat: 52" (132 cm) About rain skirts/wraps/kilts: This idea probably took hold when someone figured out that wearing a trash bag was far cheaper and more comfortable… Full review

Purple Rain Adventure Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars The Purple Rain Adventure Skirt has become one of my all-time favorite pieces of clothing for its functionality, versatility, comfort, and durability. What sets it apart from all other hiking skirts are the functional cargo pockets and a stretchy yoga-style waist band. It is the kind of garment you can eat, sleep, bathe, swim and walk thousands of miles in, never once having needed to take it off. This versatility makes it an ideal candidate for long-distance hiking and other endurance activities. Full review

Patagonia Happy Hike Skort

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent hiking skirt for men and women. Lightweight, quick dry, and room to move. Pockets and drawstring are a big plus. Size XL. Weight 160g (5.6 oz) without boy short, 228g (8.0 oz) with boy short. Length is 39.4 cm (15.5 in) from top of waistband to hem. This is a great unisex skirt/skort. The Happy Hike skirt should attract women and MEN adopters for backpacking, hiking, and striding use. The drawstring and pockets are BIG pluses. The waistband is comfortable when using a backpack hip belt. Full review

Mountain Hardwear Elkommando Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for warm weather hiking or backpacking. But could use more belt loops. Also needs a right hand side slash pocket—now if you put something in the slit where you expect a slash pocket it just falls to the ground. Needs a velcro reinforcement of the modesty snap, or an even stronger fastener. After a 5-day backpack on the Pacific Crest Trail in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, I can say that this hiking skirt is definitely better than shorts for warm weather. That is, you get good… Full review

Skhoop Alaska Long Down Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars I never would have guessed a skirt could be warmer than pants, but it is! Having evaluated this Skhoop Long Down Skirt in Patagonia, Argentina, I learned this goose down filled skirt is something that will block wind and keep you warmer than pants! A skirt will trap heat with minimal surface area (one tube) to exchange heat with the cold, whereas pants (two tubes) have more surface area, thus more area for cold to take over. (Ask an engineer versed in thermodynamics.) I found the long skirt useful… Full review

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

Purple Rain Adventure Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars 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. 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… 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
