- Beautiful Plaid! Diego
Price Value QualityI love this kilt! Usually don’t wear too much red for some odd reason, but this tone is absolutely gorgeous when you see it in real life. It is a very versatile garment, and being that mine was 16 oz it is good against the cold. The only thing I am conflicted about now, is which tartan to get in the 16oz again. (Posted on 12/2/2020)
- Outstanding experience Jeff
Quality Price ValueI just received my first order from USA Kilts 2 weeks ago. The entire experience was excellent!! I ordered a great kilt, customer service representative helped answer questions about the item, weights of wool - I live in Texas, differences in plaids from different mills providing light weight and heavy weight tartans. It shipped in less than a week, it looks and feels fantastic! Ive received many compliments on it already and will certainly purchase more items from you in the future! Thank you (Posted on 10/31/2020)
- Great great kilt. Greg
Quality Price ValueI have a 5-yd wool kilt and a PV kilt for competition in the Highland games, but never had a great kilt. I got the Urquhart Broad Red Modern 16-oz and I am very happy with it. I plan to use it for walks in my yard and the woods. It is on the dark side of the color palette, but think it will look cleaner than lighter tartans, for how I plan to use it. As always, another great product from USAK. (Posted on 10/31/2020)
- This is real quality. Brice
Price Value QualityI found out recently that I'm Scottish, and I wanted to get into the culture and traditions. First stop was to buy a traditional great kilt. And USA Kilts lives up to the hype. The kilt is magnificent and of good quality. I will be coming back for more products. (Posted on 10/1/2020)

- Great Kilt 16 oz Robert S
Quality Price ValueI ordered a 16oz Great Kilt during the Covid 19 virus. I was told there might be a 3 to 4 month lead time and I got it much sooner than that so I am very happy and will recommend USA kilts to everyone that i talk to about kilts!! (Posted on 5/7/2020)

The Great Kilt is a true symbol of the Highlands and of Scotland.
Known in Gaelic as the feileadh mor (Feileadh Mòr), this is the big kilt you see wrapped around Scottish Highlanders of the 16th through the 18th centuries. It has picked up many pop-culture names over the years.
In reality, the Scottish great kilt is just a large piece of tartan cloth (if someone offers you a great kilt for sale and it is pre-pleated, watch out!). The trick to wearing one lies in learning how to pleat it around your torso and fix it in place with a plaid brooch and kilt belt. Our 16 oz. wool great kilt and 13 oz wool great kilt are each sourced from the best tartan mills in Scotland and are available in your choice of tartan sett. If you want something a little lighter weight for summer festivals, check out our 11oz great kilt.
Is this the kilt I see people wearing as a Renn Faire Kilt?
Yes. Though not every renaissance kilt is worn authentically and practice putting it on is crucial. Decide if you want to create a fantasy Celtic warrior look (like for a LARP) or a historically accurate Highlander or Jacobite look. Then practice before you go to faire!
Can I get an Outlander kilt, Braveheart kilt, Rob Roy kilt or Highlander kilt?
Yes because they are all essentially the same garment, just known popularly by the movie or TV series title. Of all of these, we are most pleased with the research that went into the costumes of the Outlander series. Very authentic look!
How do I find my family great kilt?
Just click on the tartan picker link and do a search on your name. We will provide you with a custom great kilt. That means it will be in any tartan you like. Remember that most Clan tartans were not registered until the early 19th century, so don’t worry too much about having an exact tartan for a historical costume or impression. In most of history, you just wore the tartan your wife had woven for you during the winter.
