This sporran is made in Scotland and offers great value for the money. It's not a stiff leather like most sporrans... it's supple, yet tough. The top flap features a pewter Celtic knotwork medallion and each one comes with a sporran chain. If you want a great entry level day sporran, this is a safe bet!
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 QualityExcellent supple sporran, elegant yet very simple design. I wore it to work the day after I got it in the mail and had many compliments on it. I will say that it is very well made and I really like the USA KILTS engrained logo on the back side. Another excellent product USA KILTS. (Posted on 9/3/2015)

- Nicest sporran I've seen PiperWife
Price Value QualityI bought one of these for my son who requested a sporran for Christmas. My husband, who is a piper, saw it and I could see that he loved it! So I got him one too. The design is simple and elegant, and the leather is supple, not stiff. Shipping was prompt. (Posted on 12/5/2014)

Quality Price ValueI got the Celtic Knot sporran with my Casual package. Since I wear a sporran most of the time now - even with suits and jeans - I get to use it a lot. I rotate it with my Nightstalkers. I recently ordered the brown Celtic Knot sporran, since I liked the black one so much. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

- Wow! Incredible experience from start to finish! Winejunkies
Price Value QualityI waited until the last minute (that's how I roll) to get an everyday sporran for this year's Highland Games in Estes Park. I went online, found USA Kilts and was extremely pleased with the user-friendliness of the website and the vast array of products. I loved the look of this sporran from the minute I saw it. It arrived in two days and was exactly what I was looking for- soft, pliable, and roomy. Exactly as advertised! I received several great comments about it that weekend and gladly handed out the business cards they sent with my order. Will definitely be back when I am in need of something else.

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.
