This day sporran is made in the Scotland and offers a great value for the money. It's not a stiff leather like most sporrans... it's supple, yet tough. Each one comes with a sporran chain. If you want a great entry level day sporran, this is a safe bet!
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.

- Well crafted Sporran Brian
Price Value QualityThis is beautifully crafted with nice subtle embossing on the flap and nice magnetic closure. Feels like good leather and hope to get a lot of use out of it.
Only suggestion would be to give an option to NOT get a sporran belt to knock off a few dollars or appropriate price point, especially for those of us who prefer the sporran hangers or already have enough belts. (Posted on 8/9/2019)
- Love this sporran David
Quality Price ValueI bought this sporran to have one that I wouldn’t have to worry about. The workmanship is greater than I expected for a sporran at this price. (Posted on 6/13/2019)
- Excellent value Rascal
Price Value QualityThis day sporran, first of all, is made of real leather. Construction is excellent, it's soft and supple where it needs to be, and structured where it needs to be. The embossing really adds character and is tastefully done. (Posted on 6/8/2019)

- Very nice day sporran Jkrich59
Price Value QualityReally appreciate the magnetic closure. Good looking and seems well made. It wears well throughout the day, possibly because it is not quite as large as the mental image conjured by the name "Rob Roy." (Posted on 8/18/2018)
- Embossing is faint Dave
Quality Price ValueThe sporran is roomy and the leather is good quality. The Celtic knot embossing was very faint, especially against the pebble grain finishing. The metal snap on the flap closure tends to telegraph through the leather, Still a good sporran overall (Posted on 7/27/2018)

- A great day sporran Steve C.
Value Quality PriceFor those casual days when you need to keep your wallet, keys, and phone in a safe, secure place. The leather is supple and feels great. The embossed finish is a nice touch and really classes up the look of this sporran. The sporran chain that comes with the sporran is solid, and dresses up your outfit. (Posted on 6/25/2017)

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.
