Smartwool started with a group of skiers who wanted to ski longer without having to deal with windburns and cold toes. They began by producing heavy-duty socks, but their collection quickly grew to include various skiing accessories.
The best thing about this skirt is that it’s lined with merino wool. Compared to regular wool, this type feels much softer, neutralizes body odors, and dries up faster.
We don’t know how, but this type of wool can keep you toasty when it’s frigid, yet it’ll keep you cool when it’s scorching! This way, you can wear this skirt throughout your day without having to take it off after you get off the ski hill.
To cater to the fashion-forward customers, Smartwool designs this skirt with velvety side panels and waistband, which look and feel super smooth. Also, thanks to the inclusion of elastane, the side panels can slightly stretch to fit over whatever pants you’re wearing underneath.
In terms of practicality, things aren’t that satisfying. First, this skirt doesn’t feature any zippers. If it limits your strides on the mountain, there will be nothing you can do. Second, the featured pockets aren’t wide enough — they’ll barely hold your keys and cards. And as you might’ve expected, they aren’t sealable.
