I love Skirt Sports products and wear their Gym Girl Ultra Skirts all summer long. I even have the Lotta Breeze Capri Skirt to get me through Spring & Fall. I was excited to see STP carrying their wintertime piece, "The Ice Queen Ultra Skirt." The item I received must be last year's model. It does not have the "built-in adjustable length leggings with encased draw cord hidden on each leg" as in the description. It is fine for me because at 5' 9" - I need all the length in the leg. I have worn these already on two cold morning runs and I must say, I love them! They do not slide down during your run, thanks to the addition of a drawstring at the waist that is missing in other Skirt Sport items. They are warm and the windproof and water-resistant thigh panels seem like they would be very protective if you were out in the rain - as I might be at a 5K this weekend! My only complaint is that the two-panel windproof and water-resistant skirt could be a bit longer. It is quite breezey on a cold day - but again, I may have last year's model and it may have been lengthened when they updated the design, or it is just short on me because of my height. The Ice Queen Ultra Skirt has the signature pockets under the skirt and the music port. The pockets are what keeps me coming back to Skirt Sports every time - anyone who runs with their iPhone knows that the pocket at your hip is the only way to comfortably carry your phone and play music through your headphones while you run. Thanks to STP for offering the Skirt Sports brand at reduced prices!
