  • Product Description

    NEW AND EXCLUSIVE!


    USA Kilts is proud to introduce the first of our new Viking line of sporrans. Crafted with the highest attention to detail, this bold and rugged day sporran speaks to the warrior in us all. Two wolves are rendered in energetic Celto-Norse style on the flap. And hidden underneath are two Viking warriors raising a mead toast with drinking horns!


    Wolves are an essential part of Viking lore and thought. In Norse legend, Fenrir (or Fenris) was the great primordial wolf. A force of chaos, he was an even match in battle to any of the Gods. Odin, chief of the Aesir, keeps two wolves as battle companions - Geri ("ravenous") and Freki ("greedy"). The famous "Berserkers" (warriors sworn to Odin) wore the skins of either bears or wolves as battle regalia.To the Vikings, the wolf symbolized an indomitable will to survive and the refusal to submit to one’s foes.


    Our design, conceived by an American artist of both Celtic & Norse heritage, combines the very best of ancient as well as contemporary art. Our UK-based sporran crafter builds a hefty day sporran - full-grain leather with a brilliant red suede lining. Then he laser-etches the swirling knotwork and fierce beasts into the flap and body. There is no other sporran like this anywhere!

    Very nice and well made. The inside was black not red as anticipated. (Posted on 9/10/2019)

    Being my first sporran I wanted something special. This one fits the bill. I’ve received many compliments since wearing it out. It’s beautifully made and the inner small pocket really comes in handy. I’m so glad to own this. (Posted on 7/7/2019)

  • Buyers Guide

    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 It is essentially a survival of the common European medieval belt-pouch, superseded elsewhere as clothing came to have pockets, but continuing in the Scottish Highlands because of the lack of these accessories in traditional dress.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.
