This elegant leather day sporran is made in Scotland. The top flap features an antiqued silver 'pin' closure system. 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.

Price Value QualityI believe that is the most beautiful sporran I've ever seen. I would wear that if the Queen were planning to knight me on Burns Nicht! Informal? Aye, but where's the dress sporran that can compare? (Posted on 1/11/2022)

Price Value QualityI am grateful to Ian Anderson's invaluable assistance with this order. I had originally planned on purchasing a brown and black sporran, with a black strap. After enquiring by e-mail, Ian kindly sent a photo with a brown strap alongside the sporran for colour matching purposes. During the subsequent order process over the phone, I mentioned in passing how much I liked this sporran and wondered if it was available in brown, with a matching brown strap. As luck (of the Irish?) would have it, Ian mentioned that a delivery had just arrived of this sporran in brown with a perfectly matching brown sporran strap. The decision was simple. I'm so glad I purchased this sporran. The workmanship is of the usual high standard, further enhanced by great service. Thank you, Ian, and USA Kilts! (Posted on 12/22/2021)

Quality Price ValueVisited USAK last week, and wanted this in brown, but the website did not have it available, but Lucas dug up a brown for me in the stock room. I must say, it's a very well made sporran, functional, easy to open and close, and great looking, simple design. Perfect color of brown for daywear! (Posted on 4/15/2021)

Value Quality PriceI'm not an expert on kilts, but I do know leatherwork. This appears to be of good quality and appearance. USA Kilts was very obliging and produced a brown sporran. Shipped and received in less than a month, even in the current conditions. (Posted on 12/22/2020)

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.
