Craigmore is a famous climbing hill on the edge of the Trossachs in Scotland. The windy summit rises about a mile northwest of Aberfoyle. Like the mountain, this unique day sporran stands out from its surroundings. We combined the practicality of our popular day sporrans with the rustic look of a hunting sporran. The flap is embossed with angular Celto-Pictish designs accented by silver studs. The body sports a set of "leaves" on hand-braided roping - the traditional decoration for a hunting sporran. All together, you get a tough sporran that is ready for outdoors adventure but will still look great in town. A "go-to" sporran that will become an old friend. The interior is lined in grey suede and features our trademark card pocket. Lovingly hand-made by our craftsman in Scotland.
The waist measurement needed is the actual waist measurement, not your pants size. Typically, your pants will be 2 to 4 inches smaller than your actual measured waist.

- Beautiful day sporran an Gàidhealach
Quality Price ValueThis picture doesn't do the Craigmore justice. Its even more beautiful in person. Well made and the leather has a nice supple feel to it. I really love the leaves like a hunting sporran instead of the tassles. No more incessant drumming. (Posted on 8/18/2022)

The Sporran (Gaelic for "purse" or “Pouch”, pronounced /Spor' en/) is a pouch that performs the same function as pocket on the kilt. It's where the kilt wearer stores their keys, wallet, etc. The sporran hangs a few inches below the belt buckle (typically 3”), directly over the wearer's 'manhood'.
Made of leather or fur (or a mixture of the 2), the ornamentation of the sporran is determined by the formality of dress worn with it. The sporran is worn on a leather strap or chain, or in the case of larger men, from 'sporran hangers' which suspend it from the belt. It is essentially a survival of the common European medieval belt-pouch, superseded elsewhere as clothing came to have pockets, but continuing in the Scottish Highlands because of the lack of these accessories in traditional dress.
There are several types of sporrans. Day Sporrans, Semi Dress Sporrans and Dress Sporran are the most common styles. There are also other styles, including Hunting Sporrans, Full Mask (aka Head On) Sporrans and Horsehair Sporrans.
Day sporrans are typically worn casually, during the day (before 6 PM). They are made from all leather and have a flap on the top. They are typically “D” shaped with the flat part at the top.
Dress Sporrans are typically worn formally (after 6 and for formal events like weddings). They are made from fur (Bovine is most common in the US) and have tassels on the front and have a metal cantle (semi circle of decorated metal at the top) on top. They are typically oval shaped and open in a “V” from the top.
Semi Dress sporrans are a cross between the Dress sporran and the Day sporran. They are half leather (the flap that closes the top) and half fur (the front 'face' of the sporran). Typically they have 3 (and sometimes 2) tassels on the front. They are typically “D” shaped with the flat part at the top. While some consider them to be “a jack of all trades, master of none”, they can be worn to both formal and casual events.
Hunting sporrans are a full leather sporran with no tassels on the front. They are preferred by many pipe bands for the lack of 'drumming' done while walking (no tassels = no drumming). While it's not clear where they acquired the name “Hunting Sporran”, it is generally accepted term that is meant to differentiate them from the typical “day sporran”.
Full Mask sporrans are the fur sporrans which have the head stuffed and mounted on the flap. They can be worn formally and casually, though due to the price, most are reserved for formal occasions.
Horse Hair sporrans are most typically worn by pipe bands with a 'military' look. While they have been worn by civilians in years past (1800's), current fashion is to relegate them to pipe bands and military personnel.
