Feminine Fun on the Run

Gore Essential Lady Skirt

Our reviewer has countless pairs of capris and shorts fighting for space in her kit bag;  so when the chance came to review Gore's Essential Lady Skirt, she jumped on it.

Add a bit of feminine fun to your run with this skirt from Gore, created from the soft, silky technical fabric that made the company’s name as a premier running brand. Mesh panels on the attached inner shorts keep you cool on the move and reflective detailing helps keep you safe. There’s also a handy pocket on each of the legs deep enough to stash a set of keys, gels or even an iPhone – and you can pop your headphones through the well-placed media hole too!

Although the shorts did ride up a bit on our (very tall) reviewer, she didn’t find it uncomfortable; the well-cut skirt offered good coverage and stayed put at any speed, providing all the benefits of running in tight shorts with none of the self-consciousness. But what our reviewer liked best about the skirt was how feminine and strong it made her feel, especially when paired with a brightly coloured fitted tank. What she didn’t like was that deciding what to wear when going out for a run just got a lot harder!

The Gore Essential Lady Skirt has an SRP of £49.99. You can read more about it here.
