This elegant leather day sporran is made in Scotland. The top flap features an antiqued silver 'pin' closure system. This simple, yet classy closure makes a utilitarian closure system into a piece of art. It comes with a Sporran chain (adjustable length) to fit most men.
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.

Price Value Qualityi was looking for a mid-price, simple day sporran when I found this piece. It is well made with good leather and looks nice. With the thickness of the leather and the way the edges are finished, it should keep its good looks for a long time. I'm well-pleased and didn't spend twice the price or more for a fancier sporran that wouldn't have looked any better with my kilt. Good choice for casual highland wear when piping!

- As advertised Mongo
Value Quality PriceProduct is solid and is as advertised. Leather could be of a little finer quality, but for the price it is a fine product. (Posted on 10/1/2019)
- Excellent Value; Beautiful Sporran! The King's Hand
Price Value QualityStops all sporran drumming. Amazing and the best for the value! To stop the chain from drumming you can actually drape it over the opposite that that they display in the picture -- it causes the chain to be slung in a more taut position and will not cause any noise when you walk and still looks great. Otherwise plenty of room in this sporran and dresses up or down as you want. Completely recommend!!! (Posted on 9/13/2019)

- Beautiful in its Simplicity Chris
Value Quality PriceElegantly simple design. I have seen pin sporrans for half the price, but they weren't even half as nice as this one. Top quality. (Posted on 11/10/2015)
- Cheap and Nasty Chain Wil
Price Value QualityThis Day Sporran is simple, sharp and elegant in design, however although the leather and craftmanship are of a very high quality it is seriously let down by the cheap and tacky quality of the chain that attaches to the pin. The manufacturers need to upgrade the chain to a much more solid and heavier version. They will then have a Sporren of outstanding quality and workmanship that would be a credit to their company.

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.
