I tend to wear the Knee Length Version more now than my original. During summer traveling and other activities, the Knee Length tends to be more convenient and of course breathable.
I wear a pair of wicking running shorts under the skirt when hiking to prevent leg chafe as I also do when wearing the full length. This is more of a personal preference, as others may not feel the need to do this. If worn during the winter, a pair of tights can just as easily be worn under the skirt.
While not hiking, the skirt functions like any other. I tend to stuff my pockets with my keys and wallet due to the convenience of having them. This, however, can make the wearer’s thighs look a little misshaped but I feel if you’re wearing a Macabi Skirt you tend to have a passion of function and adventure not always what makes your thighs look slim.
The hem of the skirt does tend to flip up during activity and the material rides up slightly, but I haven’t found this an annoyance more of an observation. The wearer may notice some limit on the range of motion in the Knee Length compared to the Original however this is only minimal and does not prevent me in any way from hiking or adventuring in it.
Main Differences Between Knee Length Version Original Macabi Travel Skirt:
The only difference between the two is the length. The overall design is the same including the fabric, pockets, multi-ways to secure skirt (drawstring, belt loops, etc.). The Knee Length Skirt does not have snaps or clips, but these are not needed due again to length.
Price: $59.95, however, I did catch a sell and got 20% off my skirt
I am entirely sold on Macabi. The price is worth it for me for a garment that is going to stand up to continuous wear and tear. I have yet to be disappointed in either version of their skirt that I own. I am surprised at how much I tend to prefer the knee length version (at least in the summer). I do not doubt that at some point in the future I will buy yet another skirt. Macabi provides comfortable and functional skirts that for a full-time nomad cannot be passed up.
