Piper kilt hose are not JUST for bagpipers!
They were developed for and designed by pipers to be hard wearing and look good. Piper's hose are available in 7 colors, so it's easy to find the perfect match for your kilt. The diamond pattern at the top of the hose is similar to the "popcorn top" style, but it's more durable as they're knit as a single sock. As the top is integrated into the sock as a long turn over section, the overall length of the leg can be adjusted by turning the top over 2 to 3 times to meet individual length requirements. The top of the sock has a significant amount of stretch, fitting people with up to 19" (or so) calves.
Composition of the Piper Hose:

- Funny Thing Mark
Price Value QualityI only did the review so that I could comment on the fact that the socks come with a card inside that says "Care Instructions" and only has instructions on how to put on the socks. It says nothing about actual care or cleaning instructions! Though that was ironic!!!
[ADMIN Note: That's too funny! For the record, the care instructions are: Machine was cool, lay flat to dry] (Posted on 2/12/2018)
- Great hose for Fall/Winter Mr. Christopher
Value Quality PriceI bought these for my upcoming nuptials in February, but decided to field test them in Boston in early January, where the Saturday high was one (1!) degree.
They are so comfortable and toasty, I didn't even care that my genitalia was frozen to my leg. Highly recommended. (Posted on 1/10/2018)
- Beautiful men's hose. Mac
Price Value QualityI have recently purchased two pairs of these hose. They are without a doubt the softest and most beautiful knitted I have. The pop corn top has a number of different ways to be showing off your flashings. (Posted on 9/2/2017)
- Excellent Geoffrey
Price Value QualityNot as heavy as lot of piper hose, but nice and solid. Large size is quite comfortable on a size 13 (US) foot. Bought one pair at Celtic Fling, and just ordered 3 more in different colors (Posted on 7/8/2017)

- GREAT for pairing with a darker Kilt. Ian
Quality Price ValueI've seen wool hose for higher prices that were lousy in quality. THESE are GREAT. Comfortable to wear, and provide great cushion for the pad of your foot. They also look very sharp when paired with a darker tartan. (Posted on 2/16/2015)

Kilt hose are typically worn pulled up, with the top stopping about 2 to 3" below the bottom of the kneecap. Also, note that they are "turned over" at the top. Elastic garters, called "flashes", are typically worn under the turned over top section to help keep the hose from falling down.
