Blyss Trail Skirt Featured in Backpacker Magazine

We're thrilled to announce our Trail Skirt is a pick for Backpacker Magazine's Spring Gear Guide 2021. Since this is our top selling skirt here at Blyss, a lot of you already know why this skirt is so great, but check out what Backpacker has to say...

"Confession: We've never really liked wearing skorts on the trail, usually finding their confining fit a poor tradeoff for breathability. But the Trail Skirt's freedom of movement and storage capacity have turned us into converts, especially for trail runs and short hikes without a pack.
Stretchy undershorts with a 5-inch inseam and an elastic hem stayed in place on our thighs during runs and hikes in Arizona and Colorado. Two drop thigh pockets on the undershorts hold a phone and energy bar each, and a 7-inch zippered pocket at the back of the thick waistband provided even more space for comfortably storing keys, headphones, or credit cards - all of which barely bounced around as we moved.
Mesh side paneling on the skirt kept it breathable in temps up to 100 degrees near Sedona, and side slits made it flow enough for us to sidestep and jump over fallen trees without ripping."

That pretty much sums up why I designed this skirt!  I wanted a lightweight skirt that let me jump, climb and run on the trails while also providing coverage in the form of a longer undershort. While this skirt was designed with running in mind, it is perfect for hiking or any adventure where you want the freedom of movement in warm temps.

Here are the details:

  • Made in the USA of imported fabrics
  • Fabric: MaxDri moisture management and MicroBlok antimicrobial finish
  • Skirt & Under Short: EcoGreen 84% recycled polyester/16% spandex
  • Mesh Panels: 92% polyester/8% spandex 
  • Under Short Inseam: 5” 
  • Skirt Length (Medium): Front-14”, Back-15”
  • Waistband: 4”
  • Machine wash cold and dry flat or hanging

I still believe Blyss could be wildly successful and big with the right funding and leadership, but at this point in my life I'm not comfortable with taking that financial risk nor am I excited about leading a big company. I truly like knowing each of my customers and had hoped to be able to remain small and successful.
