Summary

Excellent hiking skirt for men and women. Lightweight, quick dry, and room to move. Pockets and drawstring are a big plus.

Pros

  • Unisex—men and women comfort
  • Drawstring
  • Pockets
  • Stretchy material

Cons

  • Needs second hip pocket
  • Lacks reflective details

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.

Comes as a skort with a lightweight boy short, but I recommend removing it to reduce weight and to allow greater wear combinations. The boy short is comfortable should you decide to keep it.

The left hip pocket is just right for an iPhone 6. The rear zippered pocket is good for my small wallet or or securing keys.

Stretchy material is cut generously for a long stride.

Thanks for the recommendation, GK Lott. I also like skorts at times for hiking and running.
