    So I picked up a Utilikilt brand utility kilt last weekend, something I have been thinking about since I met a couple of the owner/manager types a few years ago. A friend of mine has been adventure racing in his for over two years and loves it, the kilt has held up beautifully. These things are made right here in the US and are built like freakin' tanks. They are also a bit of a financial investment (I got mine for well under the wholesale price, but know believe it to be worth the listed retail price).

    What do I have under my kilt? Absolute freedom and incredible comfort!

    Here are a couple shots from the OC picnic last night:

    Mine is the Survival model.

    This model can fit 20 bottles of tasty beverage in the pockets -- who needs a sporran?!

    Edit: I am glad you know what a sporran is!

    I'm surprised that Carhart doesn't make a Kilt yet ;)

    I saw a thread on Opencarry.com about kilt carry. I think they eventually decided to boycott Utilikilt as being antigun for some reason. Some other brand of kilt has a holster built in.

    I figure only a real man could wear a kilt.

    I have a utilikilt. Alas, I didn't discover the attention it attracts until AFTER I got married :p

    Provided you have a relatively flat stomach, broadish shoulders, and good calves, a utilikilt will make you IRRESISTABLE to the ladies, all of whom want to know what is worn under the kilt, to which you can reply:

    "Nothing is worn under my kilt, 'tis all in fine working order."

    "Socks"

    and, depending on the attractiveness of the asking lass, "Reach under there and find out!" :p

    My kilt belt is 2 inches wide so no holster would fit it. I can fit a 642 into the side pocket. But thunderwear would probably be the best, other than a sporran.

    Thigh mounted derringer costs you a man card!!!

    A serpa, utilikilt, coke, and a springfield? You sir, are a man of exquisite taste.

    Lazarus Long wore a kilt with blaster strapped to one hairy thigh, a knife to the other.

    I was part of that thread. Utilikilt may have one person in a manager position who is antigun, but the company most certainly is not!

    What can I say? I only like the best! :D

    Yeah, I just read the thread for the "proof". Seems like one employee mentions the owner is anti-gun as justification for why they wouldn't add a tool loop to both sides of the workmans kilt. No other details that I could find.

    Possibly the owner carries a scottish claymore into the woods with him and therefore sees no need for a firearm :p

    I am not a purist in my shopping. If the vendor has what I want at an agreeable price, I tend to buy it without asking all that many questions about extraneous things anyway.

    Thigh holster. Just lift up your garment, as whoever is going to see what's under there is about to be...KILT!

    While I no longer have a utilikilt (long story, back woods camping, skinny dipping etc.) I do have a few other brands and carry with all of them.

    To answer what brand has a built in holster your referring to NeoKilt. But the guys from KommandoKilts are gunnies from what I understand. SportKilt also offers a hunting kilt. Just FYI.

    A few years ago I ran to get out of the rain with a rather heavy stuffed sporan and recieved what a fellow referred to as the Sporan SMACK! :eek:

    Since then I've tried hard to keep my sporan light. :D

    If I'm forced to wear pants I usually tuck IWB. But with a tucked in shirt that kilt wear dictates this is impractical for CCW. Hence I've also branched out on the road to experimentation.

    While I enjoy a tankers rig for carry in the vehicle it's entirely unpractical for daily life and I don't care for shoulder holsters.

    Currently I'm playing with the Safariland Thigh Holster with a few minor modifications, flipping the belt loop to work from inside the waistband, padding since the strap will be against skin etc. I have read some heinlen but now I'm going to seek out this Lazarus Long fellow. :)

    It's always good to have more unbifurcated men on THR. If you find a solution that works better for you please do share.

    When I get my new IWB holster I will cut the belt hook off my old one and use it as a pocket holster in the right-side cargo pocket. Putting all my other stuff on the left balances out quite nicely.

    Seriously, you would not believe the pockets on this thing!

    I sense this thread is going in a bad direction.

    I have to say I couldn't care less the political views of a company I do business with so long as they aren't giving profits to the brady bunch or something like that. A good product is a good product.
