As much as I’ve loved the previous Skirt Sports skirts I’ve tried, my current favorite is the Tough Girl and I’m fortunate to get to give one away, so make sure to enter as many times as you want before the giveaway ends at midnight on my birthday, Dec. 8, 2015. I’ll announce the winner on Dec. 9.
This is where I tell you that as a Skirt Sports ambassador captain I get gear to try and a generous discount. That said, all opinions are my own.
Why the Tough Girl?
I got the Tough Girl in early fall and pulled it out as soon as the temperatures dipped into the 40s in the Michigan tundra. I was not disappointed then nor more-recently when I’ve run in the 20s with a brisk wind.
Like its shorter cousins, the Tough Girl fits great. I am not-quite 5-foot-6 and weigh about 130 lbs. The medium is a hair too big, but it doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall off. It’s also a bit long, but doesn’t touch the ground when I wear running shoes. Good news: it also comes in short and long lengths as well as in sizes from XS to XXL.
The fabric is substantial but not so thick that it feels heavy. The skirt is just the right length to cover your, ahem, assets and the built-in pants have two pockets that easily fit my iPhone, even with my Otterbox cover.
I’ve loved this skirt so much that I have been washing it, hanging it to air dry and wearing it again the next day. (I’ve asked Santa for another winter-weight skirt so I’ll have one to wear and one to wash.)
The Tough Girl retails for $95 and the quality shows. This has been my go-to skirt and has held up beautifully despite all of the use (including trail runs every Sunday) and repeated machine washing.
As with a lot of the Skirt Sports gear, I really wish the company would add more reflective features, especially since it’s weight and length call for it to be worn in the fall and winter when the days are so much shorter. Other than that, it’s definitely a winter must-have.
