SKHOOP’s Original Skirt is where it all started. One extremely cold winter morning in 1999, SKHOOP's founder Sissi Kewenter was about to take her dog for a walk in Åre, Sweden. Putting on traditional snow pants seemed like nuisance at the time, but the further away from her house that they walked, the colder she got. As she began to freeze, Sissi started creatively developing the first insulated cover skirt as she raced back home where the Original Skirt was born.
The Original Skirt is the perfect warm accessory for those cold winter days, a perfect layer for long dog walks or just waiting for the bus.

First, I’ve had my first skirt for nine winters. Have never had to wash it and I work in a school! I have several of your skirts ( the merino tops too) and keeping warm in your clothes is truly life changing if you are in a colder climate. Prairie winters in Canada- was -36 (-47 with wind and that is a normal low here) and I was warmer than my plugged in vehicle. Seriously warm clothes when being warm can be a safety issue. And durable, I would not hesitate to repurchase.
I just bought the original skirt and the Alaska down skirt and couldn't be happier! I live in skirts in the summer and was searching for something similar for winter and these skirts allow me to have style and warmth at the same time! I will live in these skirts all winter long! They are high quality material and workmanship. I love all of the zippers and pockets and belt loops with the insulated skirt! Just gorgeous! So glad I found this company!
I got this skirt a little over 10yrs ago when I still lived in Ak. I have worn this skirt every winter since I got it. Almost daily. It's still perfect. I get compliments & asked where I got it all the time. I'm writing this to say the durability & quality of this skirt rocks. If you have any hesitation-dont. This skirt will keep you warm & last many many years. BUY IT
Getting colder here in Maine over the past few weeks, and this skirt has allowed to me comfortably hang out with my friends outside...and when I have to get in my truck, just zip the side, and up I go. I’ve used it for hiking, the flexibility of the zippers allows me to scramble up so easily, then tighten the skirt around me when I flop down at the top. I purchased this through a store in Alaska, but wanted to let you know just how much I love this skirt...my Swedish father is not surprised at your brilliant design! MJ
Love this skirt. But it turns out medium is just a bit snug, over my long underwear and dungarees. I've returned it to get the large size, so I can be comfortable sitting as well as walking this winter. Skhoop made the return process easy. Fabulous customer service - it got here quicker than expected. (Though some of that is luck with carriers during these pandemic days.) Very happy customer.
