Rated 5 out of 5 by Okanagan Perfect for traveling
I concur with all other positive reviews. This is an excellent skirt for travel or for warm weather at home. At 5 ft. 2 in., 120 lbs., I ordered a regular (not petite) size 8, my usual size in LLBean pants and shorts, hoping the skirt wouldn't be too short for a 'mature' women who is active and loves adventure travel. As the skirt sits slightly below the waist it sits right over my knees-perfect. I find that the skirt does require a top that falls to the hips or is a tunic top; that's an age related concern. I have a number of items from this line, love them all but do take into account that many mature women have a rounded figure so do order according to the chart, not smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALKinNYC Casual Travel Skirt
I'm looking forward to wearing this on a summer trip to Australia. It seems like a nice alternative to shorts in the hot weather and I think I can hand wash it and let it hang dry over night. Useful pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by manypants123 Perfect skirt
I am now loving wearing skirts! I am 5'7", 130 lbs and size 8 fits perfectly. This skirt has great USABLE pockets which is a must for me. The fabric is a little stretchy great for chasing dogs. It is impossible to wrinkle and dog hair brushes off with a swipe of my hands. Bought both colors. More colors and I will buy more. I machine wash the skirt and hang dry. It dries super quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheTravelerHiker Good *short* skirt, similar fit/pockets to pants
I wrote a review on the pants, so won't go into details about the sizing or the pockets on the skirt which are exactly the same as the pants. This is a great lightweight skirt for "around town", and traveling in places that do NOT require modesty as the skirt ends above the knee even with very short legs. Styling is simple, casual & pleasant.
- weight: size 12 weighs 5.5 oz
- length: I am very short legged, 29-30" inseam, and the bottom is 2.5" above my knee, much as shown in the picture. Size 12 measured 19" in length in the center front.
I bought both 14 & 12 and they were almost identical sizing. I assume this is an "error"(?), as the shorts & pants were quite different between 14 & 12.
I am giving the skirt 5 stars b/c it is what it says it is, but I really wish LLbean would produce a similar lightweight skirt (with same pockets), but *below* the knee for traveling to those modest countries, maybe mid-calf or rather 26-28" long? Finding a decent (long) lightweight skirt w/ plenty of secure pockets is almost impossible (I have *yet* to find one for modest countries ... LLBean, hope you are listening!)

Very light weight. Bought it at end of summer so my next year I'll be ready to walk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BelleOfBarmera Brilliant, flattering, practical!
Great skirt for casual comfort, fits true to size. Super lightweight stretch fabric makes it great for an active lifestyle, including getting in and out of cars, accesing stairs, bending and moving for work. Mesh waistband lining is actually a soft kind of fleece material (it's very hard to tell from the online picture# and in fact does make it much more comfortable than if the skirt fabric was against your skin - well done LLBean!. Wore it on a very rainy day, and it dried quickly. Only con: because the fabric is lightweight, a smartphone or heavy set of keys or coins will definitely pull the skirt down. Lots of great pockets, but really only for light loads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rudy97 Great new skirt from Bean
I have not seen this before, so I ordered it for an upcoming trip. Also decided to wear it on the golf course. It is super light weight and fits well. I washed it and hung dry..dried quickly!
You can machine dry. Will be taking it on an overseas trip so I wanted to see how it would dry. Should pack well.
Also have to say that this came with some other items less than two days after I phoned it in! LL Bean is the best when it comes to fast service and great return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperTrek Love this skirt!
I tried it on in the store and walked around in it for about 30 minutes going back and forth between two sizes. I decided on the larger size so that the pockets didn't pull taught. In fact, I bought both (tan and grey). If I could, I would wear these skirts, and only these skirts, every day. I wash them quickly on cold in the machine and hang them to dry -- they're dry by the next morning. They are comfortable, stylish (I get compliments on them all the time) and super easy to care for. Somehow, and I'm sure exactly how, they are better than shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valleygirl Great skirt for Golf
This is the perfect skirt for golf since the zippered pockets can hold tees and a bit of cash securely. It is very lightweight, stretches when you do and the charcoal colour is a nice alternative to the standard neutrals of black or navy.
