I have had this skirt through 8 Winters in Chi-beria. If you aren't familiar with Chicago, that's no small feat. I work in television and have to spend 12+hour days shooting outside in Winter, rain, snow, or -40°F. This skirt has kept me warm and sane in conditions that could have otherwise been dangerous. It is the BEST gear you can buy if you plan to spend sedentary time outside in the Winter. The durability/longevity of the skirt makes it a wonderful value.
I imported the long Down Skirt from Alaska several years ago to add to my SKHoop collection (Mini and Midi SKHoop thermal skirts) in Patagonia Argentina. This Long Down skirt is exactly what was needed to stay warm in the Southern part of Argentina known as Patagonia when really cold. Warmth is fantastic and I never would have thought a skirt could provide that but it does and exceeds the warmth of my thermal ski pants! The long down skirt has two useful pockets and both sides have zips. One side unzips completely which turns the skirt into a blanket (especially useful). The side zips allow exceptional freedom of movement. Sizing is correct. Haha... now the wife wants one!
I bought this skirt a few years ago, and it's still going strong. Well-made and extremely warm. Washes easily and has pockets. The fit is a wee bit tighter than what the measurements say, so I'm glad I went with the larger size.
I got to wear my long down skirt this weekend as I watch my son and all his team mates cross county skiing in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. I was very comfortable in moving up and down the mountain as cheered as loud as possible. I even ran in it to the finish line (great to have the side zippers). I did recommend this product to others as I was asked several times where I got my skirt. Ski season is just beginning and I know we are due for some chilly Alberta weather. Thanks Skhoop for making this great product.
I purchased my first long down skhoop skirt two and a half years ago, and it has been one of my best winter purchases. The pockets, the zip placements, the warmth it provides is perfect for walking, ice skating, short low terrain hikes, traveling, and even getting to the office. It is perfect at airport security as you can zip out of it very easily, (leggings underneath, of course). Strangers comment on what a great idea this skirt is each time I wear it. I am getting my second skirt this winter, and wish they came in brighter colours, given winter can be dreary enough at times. Last note. Very easy to care for. Thank you Skhoop for this item. It is a must have ward robe staple, in my humble opinion.
Hi Karen! We are so happy to hear that your skirt has become such a staple in your winter wardrobe. Bright colors are certainly a good addition on those gloomy winter days, while our Alaska Long Down Skirt is only offered in black at this time many of our other skirts are offered in some fun colors, hopefully you can find one that will be a cheery addition on a grey day! Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate it!
