Isis Women's Dash Skort

The Isis Women’s Dash Skort has transformed my running wardrobe this spring. Now that I’ve enjoyed the freedom and performance of this sporty little number, there’s no turning back.

I was skeptical at first with how the Isis Dash Skort would perform on long runs. I’m used to running in “running shorts,” the kind with an elastic waistband and built-in liner. I like to wear underwear with my running shorts, whether or not you’re supposed to, and in comparison, I found the Dash Skort to be more comfortable and less constricting than my usual combo. After a mile or so of evaluating how I felt about running in a skort, I got into the groove of my late evening run because there wasn’t anything to worry about – no chafing, bunching, or riding up. Just a wonderful sense of freedom as the outer skirt moved easily, letting  air flow around the inner shorts to keep me dry.

I loved how the Isis Dash Skort felt against my skin – cool to the touch and lightly supportive without the restrictiveness of a compression-style short. My next run was a longer one, on more hilly terrain on the trails outside of the town of Jackson, Wyoming. During more than an hour of sweating and cooling and more dynamic running, the wide waistband of the skort helped it stay put while the rest of the supple spandex-poly blend fabric moved freely. It was a beautiful day, in the 70s, with greenery coming out in full force and snow still on the peaks in the distance. Soaking in views as I stepped off the trail to let a few muddy mountain bikers go by – and smile at me – I had to appreciate my cute outfit as well. The teal Isis skort and black tank top combo was the best running outfit I’ve ever been seen in – feminine, flattering, and fun.

Now that I own one, I’ve been noticing more and more women in Jackson wearing skorts while exercising, and I’m happy to join the ranks of these athletic, sensible, stylish women. I ran into a friend on the trail the other day and we compared skorts, and what I preferred about my Isis Dash Skort was its appealing color, light fabric, mid-rise length, and the secure back zipper pocket that keeps a key, ID, or music player secure.   And BTW, I really think the guys are missing out on this fashion-meets-function-meets-fun trend in active wear.

The Isis Dash Skort is available for women in Jet, Lollipop, Sprout, and Ocean, in sizes XS to L. I usually wear a Small or 4-6 in bottoms, and the small skort fit me perfectly.

Bottom Line:  A fun and sporty skort that might make you trade in your running shorts for good. —L.S. (May ‘12)
