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.

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.
I have had two of these skirts which I bought because I am skinny and get cold very easily. The first skirt was a small size which I wore last year all winter long. This year it fell off of me on the first day. I gave it to my housekeeper whom it fit perfectly and she was thrilled to get it. Then came your one day sale. I ordered XS because I saw that this skirt is made a little tighter than the Mary Midi Down which I had to return because XS was too small. The result is that the original skirt now fits perfectly in the XS size and I have worn it only twice because of the unusually warm winter we are now having. I cannot recommend it more highly. I am saving it for dress wear when the temperature is low! The small Mary Midi Down is now my everyday skirt in cold weather. It is actually shorter than the Original Skhoop. Now I am looking for a deal on a sweater.
I bought this years ago after seeing two women pull them on at a workshop on a -40° day (one original, and one mini). I've since worn this twice in Whitehorse, in Ottawa, during Québec's Winter Carnival, and even in Victoria over pajamas during Snowpocalypse 2020. It's perfect for wet dog-walking in 1°, it's perfect for windy and dry Prairie -40°. BUY THIS NOW!
