Product DescriptionThis fur and black leather hunting sporran is made in Scotland. It has no tassels, but does come with 5 raised leather 'leaves' and an intricate circular design. It has a fur panel under the leaves to 'dress it up' a bit and to help make those leaves stand out. This sporran also comes with a sporran chain to fit the waist measurement provided.
Measuring InstructionsThe 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.

- Well worth the price!! MD
Quality Price ValueFirst word of advice: DO NOT let the price deter your choice of buying this or not! It is, without a doubt, the finest, most versatile and finest bit of craftsmanship I've owned. The versatility alone is worth the price! I went back and forth for many weeks trying to decide whether or not to drop the money. When I finally got it in the mail, I was at complete ease with my choice. This sporran truly defines the old saying "You get what you pay for". Buy this sporran!! (Posted on 12/20/2014)

Value Quality PriceI am quite partial to the hunting style of sporran. I think it looks better than any other semi-dress sporran, and it worked perfectly paired with the argyll jacket and vest for a banquet. It also looks great at the cigar lounge with a polo shirt. Short of an event with tuxedos, I don't see any place you couldn't wear this.
Good quality leather, business or credit card holder inside, and a decent amount of room.
The only thing to be mindful of is that the 'leaves' are stitched down at the tips rather than studded, so if something gets underneath and snags one of the leaves, a sudden jerk could undo the stitching.
This sporran is well worth the price, especially considering the versatility.
And, as always, the service is simply amazing.

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.
