Rated 5 out of 5 by LSRL Fitness skirt
This is my first time ever writing a review. I have 3 of the fitness skirts and love them! I have worn them alone, or in winter with thin fitness tights under neath. Paired with the fitness top (which will be my second review), this skort is great for jogging/walking, biking, working out, & Pilates. Fit: I am pare shaped, 150 pounds, 5'5" and medium fits (large was OK in hip but a bit loose in waist). Black seems to fit a little snugger than prints.

I love skorts but I've never found one that's the perfect length like this. I'm 5'4" and I don't like things to hit me at or just above the knee - shorter is much more flattering. Unfortunately, I only like the Black (multiprint, not solid black); the others are kind of garish, at least in the photos. Otherwise I'd own five of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PolarBearGirl Best article of running clothing I own
I cannot say enough good things about this skort. I had always been leery of running skirts/skorts before, but this has made me a believer. The undershorts do not ride up, nor are they too tight - perfect elastic. The skirt itself offers good coverage but also great freedom of movement. I can wear these before or after my run to do errands and not feel self-conscious. I have a black skirt and one of last year's prints, but I am definitely ordering another one this spring in a bright color. Fantastic skort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deedee88 My Favorite Workout Bottoms
I love this skort. It's not too long, and not too short. I love the feel, the weight of the fabric and the versatility. It is my absolute favorite piece of workout wear, and I wear these two to four times a week in warmer weather to run, walk and even bike short distances. Sometimes I wear them to picnics and other causal outings because they are SO comfortable. I have the Medium size, and am 5'10", 155 pounds. It fits perfectly. My only complaint is that I'm not fond of the print choices, and would like more color choices than the black since I already have two in black! I would love more bright color choices, and would like better print choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheClassicsLady Again, ...PLEASE offer in MORE solid colors!
50+ & do NOT prefer "prints"! I love my SOLID "Black" (actually a TRUE Dk. Navy) Fitness Skort. I would buy EVERY dark solid color... if offered in TRUE Black, Chocolate Brown, Dk. Gray, Dk.Olive/Loden, Dk. Cobalt, etc. (DARK is "kind"! js) I wear this one (& only) skort @ least 3 times weekly! PLEASE offer more choices. Note: I would say the length is kinder to PETITE frames.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mhr123 Great running skort.
I first ordered this in black. I'm tall and pear-shaped, and usually right between a 10-12, and a M-L in bottoms, so based on size info from other reviewers and past experience with similar products, I sized up to the large. The waist felt a little loose, and the legs rode up a bit on my run, but otherwise I really liked it. I loved that the interior pocket fits my iPhone 5, and the zipper pocket holds my car key on trail runs. I decided to order another in the aqua marine pattern, this time in medium, which was a little better. The legs still ride up a bit, but the waist is a better fit, and it is not too tight across the hips (my usual problem). I've worn both several times now, and have not experienced any chafing or discomfort on long runs, and didn't find the short material itchy as some reviewers noted.
It is a cute alternative to conventional running shorts or bike-style shorts, though a little short for me to wear on errands or the like. With an extra 2-3 inches in length I would feel more comfortable wearing it to drive the school carpool, and on to the gym, but I would probably stick with the shorter length for running.
I docked a star because of the leg ride-up issue, though it's probably only worth a half star. I don't know if grip material or a band is the answer. I also wouldn't mind seeing these in a capri length pant with the same length skirt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Couve56 See-Through Material in Sunlight
This would be the perfect skort except for the see-through material. There are fine holes in the material and when you step into the sunlight you can see right through it. I purchased the fitness skort previously and loved it, but the material has been changed since then. Unfortunately, it is being returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by evgeneia Great skort!
This is a fantastic little skort! I love how the shorts portion and the skirt portion are separate--so there is no pull or wrinkling across the hips when you walk. The shorts don't ride up on me, and are comfortable. I'm a size 14 and the L fit well. Wish it was an inch or two longer, but love the skort! Bought solid black and 2 patterns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smcgirl Best running skirt!
This is by far the best running skirt I've found. The inside pocket for my smart phone is perfect, as is the outside pocket for a few packets of Gu.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheClassicsLady LOVE, love, love the SOLID one!
I honestly do NOT know how I did without this amazing little travel companion. I ordered the BLACK, XS (I wear size 2-4 Pet.). LOVE it, and the fit was perfect! Also, want to add...the reviews were SO helpful, as it IS more of a (Dk.)"True Navy" than "Black". Matches especially well with ALL other LL Bean tops & cardigans in this color! I practically LIVED in this skort during my last 2 wk. holiday northwest. Thank you, LL Bean, but PLEASE offer it in more Dk. SOLID colors (NOT keen on the prints@ ALL!). Thank you.
