Are you looking to wear the skirt just after riding, or during?
I would opt for the $10 option for a sarong if you're just looking to cool down. Holy crap skirts/skorts/sport-skirts (whatever you call them) are EXPENSIVE.
I used to totally be against the whole skirt thing, and when I saw Nicole DeBoom with her little booth at the Boston marathon expo I was thinking, she's badass and can wear whatever she wants because she is badass, but I'm sorry, those skirts are just lame for the rest of us. However, I've changed my tune, for a very good reason: excellent ass coverage whilst peeing on the side of the trail. This way, you can gracefully squat without mooning everyone who runs by. Genius! Of course peeing in public is not cool in triathlon or road running in the neighborhood, out on the trails it's the only option, even during racing.
SO, not to hijack the thread, but I've done some research about the skirts: I see: short ones, longish ones, mesh-ish ones, spandex-y ones, brief insets and spanks insets. What do you ladies who wear skirts like the best, specifically for running??!!
What looks like the best pricepoint, light weight and style appears to me to be the Running Skirts (brand) Ultra Swift Skirt (model). See here
Anyone have any experience or opinion about the best running skirt for the price
