Rated 5 out of 5 by HikerBikerBabyBoomer Just Perfect
Wore on Appalachian Trail day hike, just wonderful. The length is just right and air flow outstanding. The material is soft and feels great. Sized according to chart. The legs did not ride up and the skirt is not restrictive. Everything stayed in place while wearing my day pack that has a hip strap. I usually don't write product reviews but I found this skort to be outstanding for hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheClassicsLady PLEASE offer this AMAZING skort in more solid colo
I LOVE this skort! The XS fits like a dream, but I only want SOLID colors (to match all my existing tops)! The "black" color, actually a true Dk. Navy, is gorgeous! I wish you offered it in grey, taupe, dk driftwood, choc. brown, "true" BLACK, etc. I would probably purchase one of EACH (color)! I like NONE of the prints offered! I practically LIVE in this skort in the summer, and the length is perfect for my petite height. Also, it's an AMAZING travel companion!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JMCM Love the black multi print
I bought these for running. The black multi print is so cute. The pockets are nicely placed and I like that one has a zipper. The hole for the headphones cords is good sized. I dropped it to four stars because there seems to be something a little scratchy in the shorts. I wore them for a three mile run and it was okay, but I'm afraid it might rub on longer runs. I am hoping that it might soften with a few more washes. I am 5'4", around 117, and the XS fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RWCM Love them!
I wear them for race-walking. I currently have 2 and I'm about to order a third. The pocket on the thigh works well for my iPhone 5 & the zip pocket is great for fuel (jelly beans) & car keys. These skirts got me through 25 + races this past season including 4 half marathons. As it got colder, I put them on over a pair of running tights to help keep my backside warm. They wash well, I run them through the wash & hang dry. I absolutely love them, they are my favorite!

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nereid Not Exactly Black
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.
