The stag is the most majestic animal in the highlands of Scotland. We pay homage to the quintessential Scottish beast in our Stag & Trinity knot sporran, designed by USA Kilts.
The Stag & Trinity knot sporran day sporran, as seen here, is a USA Kilts exclusive. It features our upgraded pewter stag head design, flanked by 2 trinity knots, a design which has deep significance in Celtic culture. The tassel bells were sculpted exclusively for us as well. The bells were also cast with a row of alternating trinity knots on each of them.
But we didn't stop there... This sporran is lined with suede and comes with our internal pocket design to hold your business cards / loose change and a sporran chain to fit the waist measurement provided.
If you're looking for a simple & classy semi dress sporran, look no further.
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.

- Wow, just Wow. Ted
Price Value QualityGot this as my first sporran to go with my first kilt. Wanted a day sporran, but with a little more "bling" to dress things up. The front is a sturdy, reinforced leather, the back not reinforced but thick leather, and the sides softer to expand. The stag's head is not some cheap applique, but a deep-relief pewter held on with 3 rivets. The head is about 5mm thick. The inside is lined with a grey suede which mitigates the "black hole" inside the pouch. The easy-to-get-to card pocket near the top and backside is just the right size for ID, credit, and business cards. The bell chains are fastened with removable split rings - I know not why. But I guess they can be replaced or adjusted this way. The knotwork bells are classy, but combined with the hard front, create quite a drum beat as you walk. Absolutely no regrets making this eye-catching original my first, but I will probably be adding a simpler (quieter) day sporran soon. (Posted on 8/31/2018)
- Great value on a great product Auggie
Price Value QualityI had purchased a sporran to go with my kilt I was fitted for in Scotland and, as it turned out to be a little too dressy for day wear, I ordered another one that was less formal. Very pleased with my purchase and it came very quickly. Would definitely recommend. (Posted on 2/5/2018)

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.
