It's the call of nature that does it for me!

I've always loved to walk and hike in a skirt. The primary reason is that it's very easy to, excuse me, pee standing up. No need to find a private place where no one can see me and then struggle to pull down my pants, squatting uncomfortably and risking poison ivy, etc. Just stand slightly uphill, gently pull my undies aside, squat just a little to keep the splash off my bare legs, and let it roll. Occasionally there will be some water damage to my shoes but I'm hiking so who cares? That's why God invented laundry soap.

A secondary reason for hiking in a durable A-line skirt with durable pockets is, of course, the pockets. Also, you have the feeling that you can move your legs more freely.

The only downside would be if you're walking through high grass with lots of itchy weeds, and/or bugs. But for me the pluses outweigh the minuses.
