I was a little wary of skorts initially, not knowing how they would fit or move. I finally took the plunge and bought this based on reviews of others and I'm so glad I did. One of the problems for me with shorts is that they tend to ride up a bit on me when I run. I have always been athletic but was a volleyball player so my thighs are a little bigger than most avid runners. I'm 5'11'' about 160 and bought the medium. It fits perfectly. The spandex shorts underneath didn't move at all during my run and my stride was not restricted. The length was also great for my height. I would definitely recommend this skort. I don't think I'll be going back to shorts!
I have switched to this skort (from shorts) in spring and never looked back. It is very comfortable, does not ride up and is versatile. I have 5 Brooks skorts in 4 colors and I also wear it when running errands. It just looks very cute and flattering (at least for my figure). I normally wear size 8-10, so I bought all skorts in Large and they fit great. The longest distance I ran in it is 13 miles so far and no chafing. The grips on shorts stay in place, no need to adjust them. The back pocket is good for a key and/or gel. You can also use a hidden hip pocket for extra gel. I look forward to running my 5th fall marathon in a skort! Also since there are 2 pockets I will not need any kind of belt for gel/gu.
Need to run
Now, I am not a tiny athlete. I wear the size XL. And I love this skort!!! Perfect for warm weather workouts. Stylish, sporty and comfortable all at the same time. It's the perfect length. FYI though, the built in shorts aren't "compression shorts" per the description. There's a sticker on the skort that describes them as boxer briefs which is more accurate. Tacky edge keeps them from riding up but not super tight. Just right and really comfortable! I bought several other brands from other retailers and these are the only ones I'm keeping. Actually, I'm going to buy a few more!

Be careful of Size Chart!
I carefully measured my hips and waist and cross referenced the provided Brooks sizing chart. It suggested a S. (It made sense to me at the time because I do wear a size 6 or 8 in shorts/pants.) I tried on the S and it was not a good fit. The outside skirt fabric did not lay nice and smooth around my hips in the back. I then ordered a M and that fits better in the hips but is loose in the waist. I haven't run in it yet and I hope the waist doesn't chafe because of the loose fit.
The skort feels light and airy and if it doesn't work out for running, at least I've got a cute skort to wear casually.
Run For Fun
I will never wear shorts again.
I have run for years...and was skeptical to wear a skort. But I decided to bite the bullet and try these. I will NEVER go back to shorts. These are amazing. As a previous poster mentioned, they don't ride up at all. And the pockets are perfect for hold just what I need. Best running item I have ever bought.
Love this skort!
I've only been running for about 2 years and I'm not blessed with tiny thighs, every other skort I have tried is uncomfortably short and rides up when I run more than 3-4 miles but this one has stood the test so far. It's very breathable and has great little pockets for a house key and if I wanted to bring along some cash or a card or something.
I'm a runner and found this skort to work out great. Long runs as well as short runs. I love the grippers around the legs on the boy short. Keeps them in place. No riding up. I would definitely recommend this product.
My only wish is that it had a draw string waist. It fits me comfortably but is just slightly loose.
Love this skirt!
I have 4 of these and love them! I'm 5'9" 140lbs, and wear them when I run. They are the perfect length, I think. Not too long and not too short. I've used them for short run, all the way to full marathons. They stay in place and don't ride up and are super comfy. I also wear the lululemon pacesetters, but I find these much more comfortable.
Wanted to like this but fit is horrible
I like to run in shorts but like running skirts for doing errands etc. I wanted to like this skirt, but the fit is horrible. I typically wear Brooks running shorts so was very disappointed with this skirt. The sizing is at least a whole size too big at the waist & ever bigger for the shorts. The shorts underneath the skirt are very oversized do not provide a snug fit as you would expect.
I really like this skort. It's very cute and a nice length (I didn't want it too short). I had no trouble with the legs riding up and I plan to wear it in my next 5K. My only complaint is that I wish it had a drawstring so I could customize the fit.
Brooks Mesh Running Short
This is the best running skirt ever. It's so comfortable & love the A line style. I bought 2. I wear these skirts daily! Look nice with cute shirt & sandals, running shoes, too when u hit the trail or pavement!
Best I've found so far
This is my 3rd Brookes skort and they're great for long runs (13+ miles). The legs won't ride up, the coverage is good, and most importantly they don't chafe. Now I could only find a bra this good...

I own three of these skorts
I use this skort for trail and road running-usually half-marathons. The best feature of this skort? The shorts do not ride up. The gripper silicon keeps the shorts in place for a comfortable run.
LOVE THE LENGTH
I CHOOSE THIS SKORT BECAUSE OF THE LENGTH OF THE SHORTS DUE TO THE FACT THAT I DON'T HAVE THIN THIGHS. DID A 5 MILE RUN, THE SKORT WAS COMFORTABLE, THE SHORTS DID NOT RIDE UP AND IT LOOKED CUTE AS WELL
Best running skort I've ever worn
I've tried several different running skirts and this one by far is the most comfortable. Stays put even on long trail runs. I own three and will likely buy more.

Love this Skort!
I love the side pocket on the inside shorts. I love the grippers on the legs of the inside shorts. This is by far the best running skort!!!!!
Great skort! Inner thigh liners keep it from riding up. Wear it to run, bike and lift weights. Will order in other colors.
It's hard to find a skort with a long inseam on the inner short. This one is 4.5" which is fantastic for us thick thigh gals.
My wife loves these
My wife loves these. The liner is comfortable and prevents chafing, with a hidden pocket for a credit card.
I'll buy more colors for her.
My go-to running bottom. Wears well, comfortable to run in and minimal to zero chafe ever in this skort.
