Sensible wear – my walking skirt (kilt) experiment list – listed by weight

Bold indicates my favorites for walking, backpacking, and every day. These have pockets that securely hold an iPhone 10sMax plus Taxi Wallet, keys, etc. These sizes work for for my size – 84 kg (185 lb.) weight and 188 cm (74 in.) tall. For skirts without a drawstring, I usually add a 2.5 cm (1″) elastic belt from REI.
