Mountain Hardwear Elkommando Kilt
There are several extremely helpful reviews for this product elsewhere on the web, so I won't try to be comprehensive. I own a Utilikilt that's approximately 10 years old, and a Stumptown Kilts utility kilt purchased last year. By comparison, this one weighs practically nothing. The tradeoff: it's a much less traditional kilt. There's no pleating under the apron, so if you're a kung fu master, your opponents may get a brief glimpse of your naughty bits as you kick them in the head. (There is a modesty snap, but it tends to pop open as I sit down, which is exactly when I'm most likely to inadvertently flash someone.) The lighter-weight fabric, plus the reduced pleating, does give this a much slimmer line with less flare than my other kilts. The other major difference from my utility kilts: the bottoms of the pockets are sewn down to the kilt. Because they're positioned much more to the side (basically 3 and 9 o'clock), their contents tend to shift to the back as you sit down, which could lead to puncture wounds if you're carrying a really butch set of keys. But then, this isn't really a kilt for sitting. It's clearly designed to provide hikers with a bit more ventilation than you might expect from a pair of shorts. Overall, though, the price is basically nothing for a kilt. This one is comfy and decent-looking. It's not an all-around kilt, but it is a worthy addition to the arsenal. And because it's so light, it's great for travel to warmer climes.

Great kilt, the material is light and soft, the snaps look rugged. I've worn it only a couple of times so far, but I've gotten positive comments from those who have seen it, particularly women. For me, it works best to wear it at belly button height, higher than I wear my pants.

Great Kilt, I own 2 Utilikilts, a canvas one and a lighter one for summer. This kilt is by far lighter and slimmer. It does border on looking like a skirt due to its slim fit, but what the heck. Very comfortable with a pack on or just lolling about. Price is RIGHT. Wear it and you will be a convert. It assists in decreasing the posterior sweat factor on hot summer hikes.

My first kilt, purchased for a wonderful hike in the Grand Canyon. All I can say is "why did I wait so long?" The comfort gained with proper ventilation is such a plus. The only caveat is having to learn how to sit on a bench with your coed hiking group in some modest fashion. I paired this with ExOfficio boxers and avoided the moisture-related chaffing I've had in the past when hiking in the canyon. It's light and comfortable, and while I was concerned that it would be too cool, it turns out it's about the same as shorts, just without the extra moisture. Highly recommended, but be prepared for a few looks on the trail. Being 6'4" wearing a head rag I tend to get looks anyway, the kilt just makes it more fun.

I've wanted a kilt for a very long time but did not want a traditional tartan. This kilt is comfortable, fashionable, lightweight and I plan to wear it a lot. I may even have to purchase a couple more. This is my first kilt and I love it.
