Rated 4 out of 5 by NYCBeanBabe My new Summer go to skirt!
The sizing was printed wrong so I ordered petite and regular and the regular is perfect. I will exchange the other two, petite skirts. At my age I don't want my knees uncovered. The fit and comfort is amazing. The skirt does not shift around like some straight skirts do. The shrinkage almost nonexistent. The lower side pockets don't make me look fa? um wider and nicely hold a folded doggie bag or small item, the side pocket my bus fare. My only fault would be the buttons which are a tiny bit awkward to use but I widened the button holes a tiny bit with my seam ripper and now I am one happy LLBeaner. Oh and I look wonderful. I am 5'1, 138 lbs and I know this size 12 skirt will look just fine when I lose the next ten pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CalgaryTK Comfy, Comfortable skirt
I have 2 of the cargo pants and when I saw the cargo skirt in the daily markdown I thought if the pants are comfy then the skirts should be too. I am so glad I ordered 2 of them (love the green - eucalyptus) and of course the standard navy which goes with everything. I am 5'4" 155 pounds & the size 12 is perfect with lots of room. I absolutely love these skirts....they are beyond comfortable. I would absolutely order this skirt even at the full price if I decide to get another color. The material is so comfortable against my skin as I am super fussy about scratchy material. I just know I will be taking these along on our winter getaway!

This skirt goes in and out of the washer and dryer with no fuss. When washed in cold water and low temperature dryer it comes out wrinkle free. We like cruise vacations and one must always carry a license and ship card onto shore; these will fit safely into a buttoned cargo pocket on the side, along with a small tube of sunscreen, credit card, and a bit of cash--no need to carry a purse! I am 5'4" 128lbs and the size 8 regular fits perfectly, reaching to the top of the knee.
Thanks LL Bean for "helping" my vacation wardrobe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanieFromOhio Very nice skirt!
I'm only giving this skirt four stars right now, because I just received my order in the mail today and haven't worn them or laundered them. I ordered two of these skirts when they were one of the two-a-day mark downs. The reviews were pretty good for this item, so I was anxious to see if it would work for me. I ordered the navy and the light almond in a size 10. I tend to fluctuate between a 10 and 12 , depending on the style. I am 5ft. 4 1/2ins. and weigh between 140 and 145lbs. I am not thrilled with sharing my weight, but I know it always helps me with sizing and fit when others do the same in their reviews. I loved this skirt the minute I tried it on! It has a slight stretch to it and I love the number of pockets it offers. It does fit a tad narrow though the lower thigh area, but that is fine with my body shape. Most of my weight is carried in the tummy area. I think the skirt look flattering, but I'll have to see what others say when I wear it. The length is good too (which was another one of my concerns). It falls about one to two inches above the top of my kneecap, which is perfectly acceptable for this 50+ woman. I would definitely recommend this skirt to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pearlfromboston Wear and go - every day!
I love this skirt. I got the blue one which is a nice dusty/mauvy blue which will go with everything in one's closet.
The material is substantial and has a light amount of stretchiness for comfort. The waist is forgiving if you have any post-baby bump or need some coverage. The length is appropriate for a 43 year old like me - so not a mini mini at all.
The waist is waist high which is good for coverage, there are neat pockets and detailing in the front and sides so that gives it a modern, sporty look.
It's now my go-to-skirt for daily wear, errands, casual social gatherings etc.

I love this skirt! The fit is fabulous! I am 5'8" tall and weight 150 lbs. The length is just right and love the bit of stretch!
I tried the pink and indigo colors first, but were a little faded looking for my taste. I settled on the Navy Night and it's a keeper!
The skirt has several pockets for everything a girl needs to take along without carrying a purse! Thanks for including some extra buttons!
This will be my "go to" skirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyersfan Cute and comfortable
I bought this skirt because I really like the feel and fit of the Southport Cargo Pants. The skirt is every bit as nice as the pants, I'm pleased to say. Fabric is soft but substantial, and has the slightest bit of stretch, very comfortable. The fit is good on me - I bought the size 12 - and I'm 5'9" tall, 150 lbs., 31' waist, 39' hips. It sits just below the waist and skims over the hips without being too loose or too tight. Even though I'm tall, the skirt's length is long enough so I can wear it to work (office-casual).
Some of the reviews say the cargo pockets are too small for an iPhone, I haven't tried to put my phone in yet, so I can't say whether it would fit. It wouldn't hurt the style if the pockets were a little bigger. All in all, this is a cute and comfortable skirt, and I think I will probably order another one in a different color.

I'm 5'7" and weigh 170. I bought the size 16 and it is VERY flattering. The product description says "slightly fitted through hips and thighs", but for me it translated as "not a lot of extra material to make me look boxy". The soft denim is not stiff and boxy. I love it!

I like to pretend I'm Lauren Bacall on safari in this skirt. It's well-made, versatile, and timeless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by spudchick Easy to wear, could use a cell pocket
I've reviewed this item before, and while I still like the design of this skirt quite a lot--comfortable, fabric doesn't stick to skin in hot weather, good attention to storage--it might be nice to have at least one of the pockets be sized to accommodate modern cell phones a little better. I'm still hanging on to a pretty small Android model with a slideout QWERTY, and my phone barely fits in these pockets. Although I know a lot of women will be more concerned with keeping a slim silhouette than actually using the pockets, I specifically bought this skirt because I don't carry a purse. It would be nice to see more women's clothes with welt-type cell pockets. Adding a substantial one to this skirt, or changing the shape and size of at least one of the pockets to fit at least medium-sized phones, might be a nice change. I like that there are more colors to choose from this year!
