Running skirts: the importance of the right pocket placement

Running skirts are great, because they cover all the bits you don't want to show the world. But where do you put your stuff? In your pocket of course!

I like my running skirts with pockets, so I can take my cell phone, house key and some money along. But I have found that it's not just about having pockets in your running skirt. It's about where they're placed!

As I am the happy owner of five running skirts, I put them all on, and made a photo collage showing you where the pockets are. And now I'll tell you which running skirt offers the best pockets!

And the winner is: Gore Running Wear skirt

My Gore Running Wear skirt is without a doubt the winner as far as pockets are concerned. It offers two pockets and they are sown onto the tight. Because of this, they don't cause any unsightly bulges and they don't spoil the line the of the running skirt. And they offer enough room for a cell phone!

Running skirts: pockets part of the skirt itself

Whereas the people of Gore Running Wear got it exactly right, the good people of Running Skirts made the mistake of sowing the pockets into the skirt. The pockets are nice and roomy, but if you put a cell phone in them, you'll see an ugly bulge and the skirt is pulled down a bit. A pity!

Asics running skirt: too small, and causes bulge

The bright red Asics running skirt offers pocket that is not only too small, it's also at an odd place: at the front of the skirt. I can't even put a handkerchief in without causing a bulge.

Skirtsports: too small, and sown into the skirt

Het pink skirt of SkirtSports comes with just one pocket too, and like the skirt from Running Skirts it's sown into the side of the running skirt. Unfortunately it's very small, but then again, you can't put big things in it because it would cause the skirt to drop...

Nike running skirt: pocket at the back

Last but not least, the pocket on the Nike running skirt. It's different, because it's at the back of the skirt. I think the placing of the pocket is alright, but it's way too small. Can't put anything in there, except perhaps my housekey and some change.

That's a brand I'd never heard of! I am so into pockets. I don't carry a phone ever, but keys, gel, etc. all need a home! I'll have to check this brand out.
