Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Kilt! Recieved mine in the mail and immediately took it for a test, at CrossFit. Had no issues running, jumping, or lifting things. Hand stands are not a good idea...lol. The only issues I had was the modesty button is not very strong and the two waist snaps rubbed quite badly. I had to tuck in my shirt to keep the metal snaps from cutting into my waist, they rest right where my leg bends. other than that, great utility style kilt. I will be trying to figure out how to shield the snaps, they won't stop me from wearing it. I do suggest wearing it around before going backpacking, I have not tried yet, but I do see the snaps interacting poorly with a backpack waist belt. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Kilt! Fabric is great. Construction is great. The material inside the waist band is super comfortable. If they bring back the other color, I will get a second. November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Charles Jackson I love you Elkommando Kilt I own four pair very comfortable and great style the pocket and belt are great I plan to wear it all year. Please in the future can make the kilt in black and brown. I also brought many of your shirts and Love all . Thanks, October 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by compromise I bought a medium, and I'm kinda on the large side of a sporty medium. I have to take up some of the extra slack with the adjustable belt, and it bunches a little. Under a pack's belt, that might rub. So that's a little big in the waist, right? At the same time, when high stepping or deep squatting the lower snaps are a little restrictive. The will pop loose, which is fine: the aren't super important. The middle snap, for those modest enough to use it, connects the front to the back, making the kilt a little like shorts, but that snap pops loose too. If one were so concerned about modesty that one used that snap, that self same one might be disappointed by the snap coming undone. I sweat a lot, so when I climb Koko Head the front of the kilt looks like I spilled a liter of water down it, but it doesn't absorb. It might be breathable, it might not, but it's a skirt! If you're moving your legs, especially if you have a wide gate, the kilt ventilates well. I'll be using it lots for speed hikes on open terrain. I'd buy another one if it came in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I don't hit the trail without wearing this product Buy this product you will not be disappointed! Just hope they bring back the od green color so i can buy another. August 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really enjoy this I really enjoy wearing this kilt. I haven't had it long, but have worn it to work (it gets hot in the office & the a/c doesn't work), social gatherings, meetings, and around the house. You get some comments, but mostly just "look what he's doing now". The only criticism I have is that the "modesty snaps" don't work at all. The snaps come apart as soon as I bend over, or sit down. The only time they stay together is if I snap them and stay totally upright. August 4, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great materials, poorly designed. The good: This kilt is very light weight, and made with premium materials. I love how soft the area around the waist is. Additionally the DWR is fantastic and this kilt washes really well, no ironing required! I like the design of the modesty system as it's easy to use and not bulky like other brands. The bad: There are only two pockets, which if you're like me is not enough. No belt loops is another thing that turns me off to this kilt and integrated belt is terrible, it's very flimsy. Since it's such a small size you can't even switch it out with something firmer. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My sweltering crotch thanked me. Probably the nicest piece of clothing i've ever put on. Softer than anything else I own next to the skin. Just spent 30 minutes trying on different shirts with it for my girlfriend. Her only comment is that the fabric on the front doesn't leave much to the imagination when going elkommando. YMMV. Doesn't bother me a bit! Love the color (Shark) and getting used to the length (about where cargo shorts hit back of my calves at the knee, worn on hips about 3-4" below waistline - 5'11") July 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable material I purchased for my husband for Father's Day. He picked me up at work in it and when I saw his he looked 10 lbs slimmer. The girls at work went nutty over it and wanted their husband to have one. He says he loves the fit, quality, material and says it's cool and comfortable. This is not our last kilt!! I think it's sexy!! July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by JUST GET IT I was like you once. Checking out the kilt every few months, reading the reviews. Wondering if it could really be worth it. The answer is YES. Once you wear it you'll never go back. The freedom of movement is incredible. Yes, some people give you strange looks. Who cares. Don't knock it till you try it, this thing is life changing. Typical MH quality. Surprisingly water resistant. Super durable material. A wee heavy, but not bad at all. For this level of toughness you can't expect much lighter. This thing has held up on some seriously gnarly hikes..just get it! June 25, 2015
