    Emylene,

    Thanks for the review, and for including both the male and female perspective.

    And thanks for answering most of my questions from a few years ago.

    No fashion forecast? :-)

    Haha no worries, Rex! Sometimes it takes a while to get these all the way through production but I always take notes on what the readers ask and try to make sure the key questions get answered! Nice to see you are still a loyal reader!

    As to the fashion forecast…. I suspect we’ll see more skirts, dresses and kilts out there. Color, print, and design options are limitless!

    After an entire season hiking in skirts and kilts, I’d never go back to shorts. I loved the modest on the fly wardrobe swaps.

    I have several thousand miles backpacking in kilts including Mountain Hardware’s Utilikilt (the AT), MH’s Kommando Kilt (PA mid state, WV’s Allegheny Trail), and Sportkilt’s Hiking Kilt in the Pacific Blue print (PCT, CDT, AZT).  I found the Sportkilt Hiking Kilt to be the most comfortable.  The Pacific Blue print of the Sportkilt Hikiing Kilt tends to fade to a pinkish color as shown in the attached photo of me at Granite Pass in the North Cascades on the PCT after about 140 days in full sun.  Sportkilt was a good sport and replaced it for free, but on the CDT that also faded.  The next one I order will be in the black tartan (if that fades, I imagine it will fade to a greyish color).
