Mornings in a mountain town.
When you live somewhere with touring access as legendary as Telluride or Teton Valley, owning cold-weather clothing that isn't multi-functional just doesn't make sense. For days when you're up at the crack of dark for a light and fast dawn patrol then back to the pad to pick up the pooches for a walk to the coffee shop, the toasty insulation of the Dynafit women's TLT Primaloft Insulated Skirt will be the first thing you reach for. Full-length stretchy side panels and an elastic waist layer easily over lightweight touring pants while the DWR-treated Pertex Quantum shell and Stormwall 3L insert block out icy gusts at the summit. When you have your après-ski americano in hand, Primaloft Gold keeps you warm and comfy even while sitting out on the deck with the doggies.

I was searching for a puffy skirt mainly because I wanted one for after skiing. I had semi scoffed at previous reviews of other skirts saying how the puffy skirt "kept their bum warm" but holy smokes I was wrong. Its versatile and totally adaptable to whatever you're doing. I wear mine walking, hiking, even doing yoga sometimes on a cold morning, splitboarding. Its actually light and pack able enough I will bring it with me for overnight spring touring trips. I love the ability to adjust the zips for different steepness in terrain and the fact I can take it fully off with the one full side zip (with gloves on too!).
Whats also great about is its the only puffy skirt I tried on that was narrow enough at the bottom and not just awkwardly flared out! So it looks fantastic on!
Sleek and warm

This skirt is definitely a lot thinner than I expected. It is also a lot more grey than black. While I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't a puffy skirt, I actually came to love this skirt. I wear it all the time while I'm winter camping in the desert or when I just want a little extra warmth over some baselayers.
The best thing about this skirt are the zippers. I've tried other skirts that just don't because of my waist/hip ratio (way too tight on hips but too loose on waist). I love this skirt because the zipper makes it super easy to get on and off and the waist is super flattering. I also love that you can adjust the zippers from the bottom so that the skirt doesn't pull too tight when you're sitting down.
Too thin for me

I was looking for a down skirt to wear over riding tights this winter when it gets REAL cold. This skirt was super flattering and easy to get on/off, but I wanted more insulation and warmth. Not great for my needs, but if you want a skirt that won't constrain you as you go about your activities, this could work for you.
