Modest/Tznius clothing for biking and exercise
Posted by Biker Mom on 30th Jul 2018
I bought this product to participate in a triathlon. It is basically a skirt that is sewn closed at the bottom, with two cuffed holes (one on each side) to slide your foot through. (Looks like a "flying squirrel"). So, it feels like you're wearing pants, but if you look in the mirror, it looks like you're wearing a skirt. During bike-riding the skirt does not cling to the leg, so it never looks like leggings - always a skirt. The cuffs can come all the way down to your ankles, so you don't have to wear a separate pair of leggings underneath (though I would recommend wearing biker shorts underneath if you tend to chafe, since from knee up, there is no material directly hugging the leg). Size runs on target (I am a size 12 and a Large is perfect with plenty of room). This only comes in dark colors, but I'd love to see a pattern/print one for a more youthful and fun wear.
All in all, although awkward-looking and something I had to get used to, it is the best thing for those who want full range of leg motion for exercise, while upholding the strictest standards of modesty.
If the price scares you, just know that it's worth it, as there is no other product like this out there. And, if you're a serious exercise/bike person, this small investment will carry you through for a while (though, to be honest, I haven't washed it yet - but their stuff usually washes well).
Another success by Aqua Modesta! Congrats!
Love it for backpacking / camping / hiking

I ordered the skant to wear on a recent 2-day backpacking trip with my family. It arrived just in time for me to use on our trip and fit very well. I especially like the wide waist band, which makes it super comfortable. I've looked all over for a tznius hiking skirt and really like this one. The only way you could make the skant better would be to include side pockets....ones that zip. Love this product!
Great for Bikiing

Received my skant and very happy to have a tznius outfit to ride my bike. The design is ingenious. Looks like a skirt with no visible separation of the legs.
Active Modesta introduces the Skant!
Upon wearing the skant, let the cuffs wrap around your knee thereby making it look like a skirt. You can wear the waist high on the natural waist or lower for a more modern appearance. Now you are ready to perform any sport modestly!
Perfect for hiking, biking, yoga, pilates, aerobics or any sport.
The black skant is available in sizes: small through xxlarge
The navy skant is available in: x-large only.
The skant may be taken in a size up, as the waist is elastic and it will drape more like a skirt when worn lower than the natural waistline.
