It's not exactly a secret that I hike in dresses and skirts. So, when I began working with Montbell I was super excited to find that they make the Wickron Stretch Trail One Piece and Wickron Stretch Trail Skirt. So I had to get one of each to give them a try!
First of all, I love the colors. Bright and happy, perfect :)
Secondly, even though the fabric is a little heavier than many of my thrift store finds it truly lives up to the claims and wicks very well. I wore the skirt on one of the hottest weekends of the summer and was perfectly comfortable and not soggy at all.
I will say that the sizing again can be a little tricky. I find that I fall right between small and medium in Montbell's clothing and with the one piece I should have gone with the small rather than the medium. The small skirt is perfect.
The fabric of both skirt and one piece offers UV protection and I like the cap sleeves on the one piece which protect my oh-so-often burned shoulders from the sun without annoying me. I usually find short sleeves incredibly annoying in length. The one piece also has mesh panels in the underarm which keeps it cool. The one piece will make a great Fall and Spring piece as well when I layer it over tights.

Jenna Bradford from trailandultrarunning.com reviews the Wickron Stretch Trail One Piece Women's. Read what she has to say.
"The Montbell Wickron Stretch Trail One Piece is a sleeved trail running dress made of smooth, comfortable athletic materials. Honestly, it is great quality construction, with durable fabrics. While it feels a bit too long even on a taller build to run in, we did take it out for a few runs."
