Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Elkommando!!! A great, light hiking kilt!! I own 9 other kilts, and for summer weather and hiking, it is great. I even bought two to give as gifts!! High recommend!! And guys, never underestimate the power of the kilt to Women! We Love them!! May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this kilt! Its really comfortable, really utilitarian. The only wish I have is that it had belt loops instead of making me rely on its built in belt, especially given the tradition of kilts to have specially made belts for them with attachments like Sporrans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The freedom of the Kilt I've never worn a kilt before, but I had high expectations for this one, and it has met and exceeded them. If you are already considering a kilt, I can't imagine how you could go wrong with this one. Great quality, fit, and design. If MH could offer some more fun colors than gray, that would be awesome. I am 6' tall, 172 lbs, size 31-ish waist, and the medium fits me great. December 21, 2015
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
