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.

- Nice piece of leather work Jimmy
Price Value QualityIt's large enough for my Moto 7 Power cellphone and a small wallet, that's good. The leather is heavy and still, I am goin to try to use leather oil on it to soften it. (Posted on 8/2/2019)
- Great value PJ
Quality Price ValueGreat sporran for a great price. I'm very happy with the purchase. (I put a dab of superglue on the back of the tassels so they don't make noise when I walk.) (Posted on 7/30/2018)

- Great features, and good value Honey Hayse
Value Quality PriceThis is something my husband picked out, and I ordered for him for Christmas. We ordered his kilt, belt and buckle from USA Kilts--and everything has met and exceeded our expectations! We also ordered a kilt for each one of our sons for Christmas--based on how impressed we were with the one my husband ordered and received. (Posted on 11/15/2016)
- Good deal for the price. Willie W
Price Value QualityNothing fancy, but gets the job done. And with no pockets in the kilt, it sure beats carrying a purse. (Posted on 4/5/2016)

Price Value QualityI am new to wearing kilts and this is my first sporran. I absolutely love it! It is extremely well made and worth every penny I spent on it. (Posted on 2/20/2015)
- Very nice. Rick
Value Quality PriceSimple and well made. Big enough to hold what I need. The snap can be a bit hard to close, but it's new and will probably get easier with time. Can't beat it for the price. (Posted on 2/1/2015)

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.
