- Great quality great kilt! Ruedi
Price Value QualityThe quality of the wool fabric is amazing! I purchased one of the Henderson Tartans and I look forward to wearing this true plaid once my other accessories arrive. My only recommendation for improvement is I wish the manufacturers would leave more of the real lanolin oil in the wool, as it greatly improves waterproofing and durability. I ordered a “British Wool” sweater once, and it arrived with that funky (in a good way) sheep smell that reminds me of the country. The smell took some getting used to, but it made for one heck of an awesome sweater. I wish the kilt fabric could arrive the same way! Great product though and I will try to share some photos once I
wear this awesome highland outfit!!! (Posted on 4/22/2022)

Value Quality PriceQuite a nice item. Been practicing pleating and belting it. Most of the time, it's laid out as the outer blanket on my bed. (Posted on 4/19/2022)

Price Value QualityI was very excited to get this kilt! It is quite hefty too. Should be perfect for a camp out trip in the Colorado mountains! Very beautiful design. Great feel to it and the pleats look great when folded up! High quality. (Posted on 3/29/2022)
- I love my Great Kilt! Russell
Price Value QualityThis wool kilt is beautiful, and wonderful to wear! The matching shawls for my wife and daughter are also a hit!
You delivered exactly what I hoped for, and I look forward to a "modern" kilt for future use as well!
Thank you so much for helping me honor my family line. I wish I could include a picture! (Posted on 12/8/2021)
- Next level kilt buying Steven
Price Value QualityI guess I've crossed over from being a periodic kilt buyer to collecting kilts. This is my first great kilt, which puts me at 6 or 7 kilts that I've bought from USA kilts. I had to wait about 6 or 7 weeks to get this due to Martin Mills not having any of this particular tartan on hand, but it was well worth it. As always, the staff at USA kilts kept me well informed as to what was going on, and I always appreciate that level of customer service. As much as I'm spending with you guys, you need to start offering stock options. (Posted on 11/12/2021)

- Great quality, value, and service. Nancy
Quality Price ValueIt took great discipline to stick with my initial choice of black watch. Sooo many awesome tartans, you can go nuts. Since I’m 83, these kilts are a treasure to leave as part of inheritance to my children’s children. (Posted on 7/13/2021)

Price Value QualityVery pleased with purchase. Highest quality fabric. The color is great. Received a week earlier than estimated. I doubt I'll ever buy this again as I won't need to. (Posted on 6/16/2021)
- Excellent! Troy
Quality Price ValueI love my great kilt!
I ordered the Davidson of Tulloch Ancient 16 oz wool. The fabric is fantastic, a work of art unto itself.
Shipping was fast, and I started wearing it immediately after it arrived, about two weeks ago (May 3). I don't even have a sporran yet (just got all my leather crafting supplies in the mail today to make my own), but it just looks so good even without one that I couldn't wait.
I've worn it almost every time I go out now, whether it's to the grocery store, community garden, or even just for a long walk around the neighborhood. I know it may seem a little strange to wear as everyday clothing, but I don't care. It feels great, and I think it looks badass!
Takes a bit of practice and patience to fold it and get it on just right (videos on YouTube have been very helpful), but the end result is well worth the effort. Goes perfectly with my usual clothes: black t-shirt, black socks, black converse. I know it will look even better with the sporran completed.
I'm extremely pleased with my purchase, and I definitely intend to order more from USA Kilts in the future. Thank you! (Posted on 5/17/2021)

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.
