The outer skirt is lightweight Merino wool with built-in Merino/Sorona mesh shorts, designed to provide support and protect your modesty when running.
The Merino wool rapidly wicks moisture away from your skin and keeps you cool. It’s also naturally antibacterial and odour resistant.
Athletic fit short (but not too short) the Skort sits comfortably on the mid to high thigh.
A wide waistband for comfort and reflective accents to keep you seen on night runs, plus a carefully placed mini pocket on the inner waistband for gels or keys etc.
5 OF THE BEST WOMEN’S RUNNING SHORTS
Jackie – “I have never worn a skort before for running, but I found it extremely comfortable and it looks great.”
"I used to raise a sceptical eyebrow in the direction of skorts. Why make running kit more girly, I thought? I’ve long changed my mind on this – some of the most hardcore female runners I know wear them, not to mention many of the top ultrarunners. This lightweight Merino skort from Howies (£35) is particularly good – the cut is quite close to the legs, rather than flared out, but it moves with you when you run. As you’d expect from merino, it’s brilliant at moisture wicking – it looked a hell of a lot better when I got caught in one of the recent thunderstorms than the rest of me did … The simple matching black merino vest is also a superb buy."
