I bought this skirt over a decade ago. I was teased because no one had heard of Skhoop or seen anything like it before, but people LOVED (and still love) this skirt. Almost every woman I know now has one. After so many years of relentless wear, I finally have to replace my original (and 2 others) because, alas, my bum finally got a tad bigger. It’s been a remarkably tough friend- every zipper is intact, no rips or tears- and I’m really rough on clothes. I can’t say enough about the versatility, durability and functional design of this skirt. It deserves industry recognition/design awards, IMO. Trying to get my “friluftsliv” on more than ever in these unfathomable times. Just buying a navy blue medium replacement skirt. Probably have to wait until better times to afford the winter wardrobe I once had. Thank you, Skhoop! Woop! Woop!
Hi Maureen, Thank you so much for your review, I am so happy to hear that your skirt has been such a loyal companion! You must have been one of our very first customers, thank you for sticking with us, we appreciate it so so much and we wish you many fabulous, and cozy, outings in your new skirt! Stay well! Megan
I went to a local retailer in Fairbanks, Alaska to try on these skirts. One thing I will say is if possible, try on before you buy. I measured as a medium but went with a large, because I will likely wear this skirt over jeans. I’m 5’3” and 140lbs. The quality of the skirt is amazing. Lightweight, “packable” so it won’t take up much room in a bag or suitcase. I ordered online to get the color I wanted for the Short Down Skirt (ruby red). Being that I live in rural Alaska, I thought it might take a while to get to me. To my pleasant surprise, my skirt shipped from Anchorage and made it to me 3 days after I ordered! There was even a very sweet handwritten note and a logo sticker. I am so impressed with this company for the customer service alone. The skirt is good quality too, covers almost to my knees because I’m short!
The Short Down Skirt is absolutely a winter must have! It is warm, stylish, and comfortable. It has perfectly placed pockets which are nice and deep, and the side zippers allow for great range of motion. I'm 5'7" and 120 lbs and the small fits perfectly. I prefer to have skirts sit lower on my waist and the elastic band in the back allows for that. Great skirt and a great company. The skirt quickly arrived (and I'm on the east coast) and was accompanied by a lovely handwritten note. So glad I found this company!!
I love this skirt for cold cross country ski days and sledding with the kids. My husband liked the shorter ones I have better (ha), but once he saw me skiing in this one he thought it was a really cool looking item of clothing. I even wore this one for downhill skiing when my oldest son had to borrow my ski pants. Not only did it work perfectly, everyone else on the mountain thought it looked super.
The Short Down is a great skirt, so glad that you think so too :) Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I hope your skirt joins you on many more ski days this winter!
My sister and I bought this skirt like over 10 years ago from a small boutique in Breckenridge. We wear it all the time on our ski vacations. And I live in the Northeast so I throw it over my long underwear after skiing and I’m ready to go. I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on this skirt! It’s not like others as it has zippers on both sides to give you space. Keeps my buns so warm. Glad to see your business is booming. However I like having something unique. BTW we are over 50.
Hi Sandy! We are so happy to hear that your skirt has had so much use (and compliments!). We really appreciate you taking the time to share your kind words. Hope you have many more fun outings in your Skhoop skirt :)
