Gore Running Wear skirt: compression shorts with a skirt
The Gore Running Wear skirt consists of compression shorts and a skirt. The skirt is quite loose fitting, and not too short. I even dared take my kids to school in it!
The compression shorts rode up a little bit, but still prevented my tighs from catching fire. They were a bit tight, but hey, they're obviously not called 'compression' shorts for no reason!
I'm very impressed with the two pockets on both sides of the compressions shorts. I could easily take my mobile phone with me, a small wallet, and my iPod. And because of the loose fit of the skirt, my possessions didn't cause any extra bulges.
But that's not all! There's a small opening you can pull your ear phones through.
The only thing I liked less about this skirt was the waist band, which was hard to find. But the manufacturers explained to me they especially made it that way, so you can choose whether you want to wear the skirt high or low.
Do you remember the eighties action series MacGyver? Every episode he got into big trouble, but managed to save himself by building a helicopter from an old toilet or something. He gave a whole new meaning to the term multifunctional! I like to call this skirt my MacGyver skirt.
In conclusion: I think this running skirt is a great asset to any running wardrobe!
