Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could yolu offer two lengths? I have two of the older, longer (and it is by no means long) version of this skort and give it 5 stars...it's awesome!! I tried on the current version and it was way too short for me = 3 stars. I can see that some may like a shorter skort, but I won't buy it again and would love a new one! Could you please offer the original length in addition to the new length? It is such a great piece you would have many happy customers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfortable I was not too sure about the sizing but this turned out to be a great find. I am 160 lbs and generally wear size 10 or 12 pants. I got size 12, thinking that I can use the draw strings if too loose. 12 was perfect. I also like that the shorts inside is snug but does not ride up. My only complaint which is minor is that the flap by the button above the zipper flaps down and does not stay up. Probably because the fabric is soft but that is what makes these shorts super comfy but stylish. One other thing to note - the pockets are deep. I wear this for golf and have to dig in to get stuff out of the pockets. Will definitely be buying more in another color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So bummed they shortened this by 2.5 inches Seriously LOVED this skort for past 4 years, having 14 in my wardrobe. Bought new 2019 and so bummed. It's 2.5 inches SHORTER and now not acceptable length for bending over even with the skort as a river guide, traveling, dining out with boots, you name it. This is so disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this skort, but it got shorter/more narrow I love this skort and have purchased several over the years, always sz 4. I am 5' 1", 114 lbs. I work outside as a professional gardener. This skort allows me to do rugged work while still looking feminine. I live in the northeast where summers are hot and humid. This skort is lots better than wearing shorts. The stretch shorts underneath are comfortable and I don't have any issue with riding up. I will say, however, that the latest Ferrosi skort has gotten shorter and more narrow. When I lay a new one over the old ones, the difference is quite stark. It is 2" shorter and 2" more narrow. I would still recommend this skort, but PLEASE bring the old version back!! It is much more comfortable and true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please bring back the zippered thigh pocket I have just received the quartz-coloured Ferrosi skort, it's so summer-pretty! I've happily added this new fun colour to my quiver of 11 skorts because, for almost a decade, the Ferrosi skort has been my go-to for hiking, workwear, casual wear, working in the gardens - and travelling. I often buy two of the same colour, an 8 for summer wear and a 10 for cold off-season wear over merino leggings. This comfortable piece is especially fantastic for travel because it packs light, hand-washes and dries with ease and can serve as 'dressed-up' in a pinch! Disappointingly though, as with the newer skorts I've bought over the past two years, there's no longer a front zip thigh pocket, despite it still being listed in the garment specs. OR, please please please bring back the zip thigh pocket because it was ideal for securing cards, cash, keys - even a passport could fit in it. While travelling, a front zip thigh pocket is more thief-proof than a zip back hip pocket. For fit information, I am 5'4", 140 lbs, normal build and the skirts continue to fit perfectly with each new purchase. The only con is that missing and oh-so-useful zip thigh pocket...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes! Love this skort! Runs small. Last year I was a size 2 this year a 4 (my weight and body type has not changed ) Wore it bouldering in Yosemite to beautiful waterfalls, jumped in falls with my skort ...perfect for everything !! Easy to wash by hand with a bar of soap and quick dry!! Pockets for your stuff...phone etc... Will purchase again!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally favorite summer skirt ever I wear this skirt more than anything else in the summer -- to work, around town, hanging out with friends, even to niceish dinners. It has a clean line, fits great, and the material is light and wicking, making it perfect for warm weather. I also love the shorts inside, which makes me feel confident wearing it in windy conditions or for modesty sake. The length is perfect -- mid thigh, making it playful while still reasonable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice skort for summer adventures I bought this for paddle boarding and it would have been a great skort but it was too short on me. I am 5'8" and wear a size 4. Had I needed a bigger size, it would probably have been a better length. Love the skort apart from that - great fabric, nice little shorts beneath. Lots of pockets and one with a zip which is really useful. Nice colour too. Had to return regretfully only because of the length issue.
