I love to look good when I hike and this skort is awesome. Not only did I still look cute after nine miles in 98 degree weather but I was very comfortable. This skort is well ventilated and causes no chaffing. After my hike, I went to a restaurant and did not feel like I stood out like a sweaty sore thumb. I have the black and will purchase another one soon. I highly recommend it for the "date" hike.
