Staff Pick: Pearl Izumi Fly Run Skirt

“You like running in a skirt? Really?” Yes, really, says Kristina Province, Texas Running Company – Sugar Land. Here’s her review of the Pearl Izumi Fly Run Skirt.

As a woman runner, I don’t like to skimp on the feelings of being both comfortable and feminine. In other words, I like to be covered in all the right places, exposing just the right amount of skin. I’ve tried a few different brands of running skirts over the years and would have to say I have now found my favorite: the Pearl Izumi Fly Run Women’s Running Skort.

This helps reduce the need to constantly pull tights down (while in motion) when they ride up. By adding the liners they had to figure out a way to keep the back of the skirt from flapping while running, so they made a “side split.”

This skirt is also ideal for women who are sick of dealing with shorts rubbing the inside of their legs, but who want to avoid capris or 3/4 pants and tights. What’s more, the length of the skirt hits the middle of the thigh.

Go Pearl Izumi!
