Rated 5 out of 5 by JacquelineInTheWoods These skorts are a wonderful find!
I ordered one of these and before too long, had five of them in my closet. I lived in these all summer and even though it is getting cool outside, I am still finding opportunity to wear them! They are extremely comfortable. I am short (5'1") and they are a perfect length for me, about 4 inches above my knees. If you are tall or don't prefer your skirts on the shorter side, this may not suit you, but for everyone else, I highly recommend this skort! My favorite ones, by far, are the two patterned black ones I have. One is a pattern they no longer offer, but the black one with the blue flowers that they sold this summer is truly a beautiful pattern. The black skirts look less like exercise clothing, and more like casual skirts. I do love them all, however! They drape nicely and I the zippered pocket on the left front comes in handy for slipping my license and bank card into when I want to "travel lightly" out and about town. I have washed these a zillion times and they still look great. I try to hang dry them, as I do most of my activewear clothing, but half the time they end up in the dryer because I'm in a rush. They really look just as nice as when I first bought them. So, great job on these, LL Bean! I hope to see more patterns in black or dark colors!

Turns out that skorts are my favorite bottoms ever. I wish that the pocket with the zipper were on the right (I'm right handed). I like the idea of a hidden pocket, but in the era of bluetooth, the cable hole is an absurdity: my music player doesn't need holes in my clothes. Oh, and for this particular item, people who care about the subtleties of color matching ought to know that it is more a dark navy than a true black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RebeccaCentralPA Just what I needed
Like the fit and the pocket. The length is just right for me. The pocket is large enough to fit my phone in it. Liked so much that I bought a second pair. I prefer the skort over the shorts. I'm 5'6" and weigh 145#.
The one thing I don't understand is the placement of the reflective material. On the front it is on the left hand side and the back it is on the right hand side. If you are walking facing traffic, I think the front reflective should be on the right hand side to have a better chance of being seen by oncoming traffic. (I noticed this on all of my active clothes.

This is the perfect skort for playing tennis and running around town. Not too short, fits perfectly, and has a bonus of a pocket big enough for my cellphone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beza Impossible to keep it on!
I am not sure why the reviews here are so good. Perhaps my skort came with a defect? I ordered these along with the Circuit Skort. While the Circuit Skort was absolutely perfect in every way, the stitched threads of this one scratch my skin non-stop whether I am moving or not. It drives me absolutely crazy and my skin gets very irritated after a while. It is impossible to keep it on. I've washed it many times in an attempt to get the threads softer, but it has not helped. Besides, the sizing is a bit off and it runs large. I got a small, but needed an XS for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SPRasse Just what I was looking for
So happy I took a chance with these. I am short and chunky and have been losing weight. Needed more athletic skorts and took a chance that the XL would fit and it does! I feel slender, they look great and it worked great during my fitness session.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTDawgMom Perfect Skort
I have 8 of these in solid black and every pattern I can find; it's become my summer uniform with a tank. The length is perfect--not too short, not too long. Shorts fit perfectly--not too tight and don't ride up. Comes to my true waist rather than the typical idiotic placement of low-rise waistband right in the middle of my (ahem) problem area. Love the full size pocket which holds iPhone in case, full set of keys and pheromone spray for dog walks.
Please, I'm begging you L.L. Bean. Don't a change a thing...and make more patterns and solid colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RunningMom2 So comfortable and flattering!
This skort is exactly what I was looking for. I ordered a medium- I'm 5'7", 155 pounds and quite muscular. It fits perfectly! The length is just right, not too short, not too long. I really like the shorts underneath. I was afraid they may ride up when I walk, but they don't. They are substantial enough to feel like good coverage, but not heavy. They stay put without being tight. The color nice and bright- accurate when compared to the picture. I will be ordering more of these!
