Don't let the price fool you... this sporran is real leather and is made in Scotland! That's right! It comes with a proper sporran chain and is fantastic quality for the price. If you're looking for an inexpensive entry level sporran, this one's for you.
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.

- Great Sporran! Mr. White
Value Quality PriceA great sporran for the price! Can store a lot more stuff than at first glance! Although the tassels on the front tend to drum on the sporran when walking, which may get a tad annoying when walking for long periods of time. Either way. A great sporran! (Posted on 9/21/2022)

- Worth every penny! Alduin
Price Value QualityThis is my first high-quality sporran. I am excited to purchase another form USA Kilts if this one indicates the quality and value of their offerings. As a Serial Kilter quality is essential to the longevity of everything I wear. I'm sure that this Sporran will last long into the future. (Posted on 9/12/2022)
- Great Sporran for daily wear! Mr. White
Quality Price ValueThis sporran is a great day sporran, and I find that it’s actually pretty spacious for the price. Can drum a bit with the tassels, but a great day sporran for the casual kilter! (Posted on 9/6/2022)
- First Sporran Papa Slob
Quality Price ValueThis is my first sporran, and it's taking a little getting used to. I've been a cargo kilt guy, for about 15 years, so I keep reaching for a side pocket. It stores all the stuff that would normally go in the pockets, without the pulling and bouncing. I'll be getting another one soon. Love it. (Posted on 8/25/2022)

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 It is essentially a survival of the common European medieval belt-pouch, superseded elsewhere as clothing came to have pockets, but continuing in the Scottish Highlands because of the lack of these accessories in traditional dress.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.
