Product DescriptionThis elegant leather day sporran is made in Scotland. The top flap features a 'pin' closure system with an 'Antiqued Silver' pin. This simple, yet classy closure makes a utilitarian closure system into a piece of art. It comes with a Sporran chain (adjustable length) to fit most men.
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.

- Excellent C. Burch
Price Value QualityExcellent quality item. The leather the Sporran is made out of appears to be of great quality and seems like it'll be quite durable. The chain that the pin is attached to does rattle a little when worn, but luckily they made it long enough so that you can loop is in various ways to keep it from making too much noise, especially when compared to the "drumming" of tassled Sporrans.
My only gripe (which is very minor) is that the leather for the back of the strap is black, rather than matching brown like the Sporran itself. This is incredibly minor, though, and shouldn't sway your opinion on purchasing this great item (especially for the price)! (Posted on 2/15/2017)
- A dignified simple day sporran Tom MacNaughton
Price Value QualityThis sporran is well made and I've worn it pretty much everyday this summer since I got it. Reviewers have said it was a bit smaller than some others but it is perfectly adequate in size for carrying my normal gear. One of the reasons I got it was to avoid the drumming of tassels when going for walks. One reviewer mentioned that the chain drums and I had figured I might have to put a sennit covering over the pin's chain to damp that. However the chain attached to the pin is long enough to simply loop over the top of the sporran thus silencing it completely. This is a great sporran for someone who wears a kilt most of the time as regular daily wear. (Posted on 10/6/2016)

- Classy sporran James
Price Value QualityThis sporran is clean and simple and I love it. Price was definitely fair. Quality is high. The chain on the pin is a little noisy against the hard leather as you walk but this is a day wear sporran, not a church piece. I love this sporran. (Posted on 1/9/2016)
- Sporran of Badassery Kiltin'Joe
Price Value QualityThis Sporran is beautifully spartan. It is masterfully crafted and functional. I immediately received compliments. I highly recommend this to everyone. (Posted on 1/1/2016)
- Beautiful item. C.W.
Price Value QualityAn extremely nice sporran, excellent craftsmanship at a reasonable price. Don’t buy a beautiful kilt from USA Kilts and then deface it with a cheapo sporran made in China.

- Good but small John Davis
Quality Price ValueThis sporran is very plain, which I like. It is also an interesting closure. Most sporrans have a snap, where this one has a pin and chain, which I quite like.
My only complaint is that it's a little bit smaller than my other sporran I bought from USA Kilts. It's still a good value for the price, just a bit small. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

- Great Product! Kilted Cole
Quality Price ValueI couldn't be happier. I have this one with the brass pin and a black one with the antiqued silver pin...couldn't have bought a better product. Great for both day wear and semi formal events! (Posted on 10/14/2014)

Brown sporrans typically look best with other brown accessories like a brown kilt belt, brown sporran hangers and brown shoes.

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.
