Why We Built It

Made with Stio® Meridian™ DWR-treated ripstop fabric and dynamic stretch “jersey” inner boy shorts, the Skirt maximizes freedom of movement whether running, hiking or moving over broken terrain. The low profile waist hangs lightly on the hips, and works well under a pack’s waist belt. Two front pockets and a third stash pocket in the rear can stow gel packs, small sundries and credit card for any après that might be at the end of your activity.

Great running skirt!
Review by Alex

Flattering skirt in fun colors. Love that the legs DO NOT ride up at all! Great for long runs, around town and chilling:) Do wish the back waist pocket was a bit bigger, but other than that it's great!

Great Product!
Review by Elizabeth

The material on this skirt is awesome. I live in a very cold climate (WI) and the skirt works well over a pair of compression pants for running and being outside. Very easy to move around in, as well.

Have all 3 colors! Great form & flattering fit!
Review by Kelly Alicia

Great for all around everyday and working out in!

Pleasantly Surprised
Review by YankeePeach

I bought this skirt on a whim after reading a few of the reviews. Running skirts are never comfortable on me for one reason or another. I decided to give it a try for a 6 mile run and was pleasantly surprised. The legs didn't ride up as I was afraid they would, and it is very light and comfortable. A great buy!

Awesome skirt for hikes! It is light and comfortable.

Best Running Skirt
Review by Nads

By far the best running skirt I have ever purchased. The rip-stop fabric is light and airy and the silicone lining on the hem of the boy shorts keep them from riding up when running.

Love this Skirt
Review by Hi-D

I ordered this in my usual size, small and it fit perfect! I am 5'6 and 115 pounds. I love the bright blue color and the pockets are an added bonus. I hope this comes out in more colors next season as I will definitely buy more.

great skirt
Review by Anna

I love this skirt. I bought 2. I am 5'5 and 124lbs and a small fits. I originally had a medium, but exchanged for a small because it does stretch, especially in the waist. The legs are just a bit tighter than i'd like, but not enough to go back to the medium. I agree with another reviewer that the pockets don't quite hold your iPhone securely. I haven't had it fall out yet while walking but i wouldn't run with it in the pockets. Great for hiking, running, and to just wear around.

I bought my sister an XS and she is 5'2 and 111lbs and she said the same thing: fits in the waist and just a tiny bit snug around the legs but a S would be too big

Close to perfect in the right color
Review by justme

Pros: The skirt is really comfortable and perfect for an active life. The blue one is really cute, too. Stio customer support was really great about exchanging the Green Sheen for the Directoire Blue.

Almost right: The front pockets are just big enough for my iPhone, but not quite large enough for me to feel secure about it. I wish the rear zippered pocket were big enough for my iPhone; it barely takes a credit card.

Cons: The green (which looks more yellow to me) is translucent, quite unlike the photos, so you can see the pockets and it looks tacky.

Fantastic multi-purpose skirt! Best item ever and flattering!
Review by SJ

This skirt is perfect for running (wore it for a road race) and hiking (climbed a beautiful Maine mountain) - great fit, flattering, very light and comfortable, and quick to dry. I have it in magnet and green sheen and they both have black inner boy shorts. The green sheen is more sheer than is pictured (and you can see through to the boy shorts and see the pockets) but is an awesome color. Magnet is perfect if you don't want something that's sheer.

Review by Abby

I put this skirt to the test in an 18 mile mountain trail race - it was amazing! The rubber "hem" on the shorts kept the leg sleeves from moving at all (I can't find any other skirts that have this!). I'm always adjusting shorts/skirts while I run and I didn't have to do that once - including after the rock scramble. The soft fabric was breathable and never felt hot even in the high Utah temps. I'm usually a medium but went up to a large for this skirt - I'm on the fence and may go with the medium when I order another one, but if you're in doubt, I'd suggest sizing up.

LOVE this skirt
Review by Susan

Wore it hiking this past weekend - great fit, super light and comfortable and totally flattering. I want this in every color.

Utility Piece
Review by Khill (Staff)

This skirt is a go too for almost all of my outdoor spring adventures. I hiked with a kid on my back and loved the low profile waistband and boy shorts to keep everything in place. I was able to utilize hand pockets to carry my keys and hiked comfortable for 2 hours. Great for the active mom.

Review by TBGIB

When the clouds broke this weekend for 2 hours, I put on my new Stio running skirt for a brisk 6-miler. This skirt is awesome. It didn't ride up or down, no chaffing and I finally got some color on my legs!!!!! Im ready for Spring/ Summer and will wear this skirt everywhere! Can't wait to hike and play tennis in it too!
