I'm still not sure I have the sack to even try it, and $150 for the cheapest one guarantees I'll never know.

Argh! "Hardware" at the mountains. I don't want to be the guy under the kilt wearer looking up.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Hehe, some of those customer reviews are funny for the Mtn. Hardware "kilt".

I found this "kilt" very comfortable. Locked in my bedroom... My wife and I aggreed however, that it is NOT a kilt. It's a man skirt. It doesn't look like a kilt, it looks like a skirt. If I were planning a long backcountry trip in a VERY remote area maybe.. It's comfy, but I sent it back...


I love Mountain Hardwear. I love kilts. I would proudly wear a kilt on the trail. This, however, is not a kilt. It is a skirt.


By definition, a kilt is a knee-length garment with pleats at the rear. As this has no pleats, it is NOT a kilt. The advertising for this product is very disingenuous. If you're a guy and have no problems hiking in a skirt made from high performance fabric, by all means buy one. If not, do a search for hiking kilts. There are several available that are in fact, kilts.


I'm not opposed to kilts, they look comfy as hell and some guys can pull it off. I'd definitely need to give myself a pep talk in the mirror, and maybe take a few shots of that other notable Scottish invention, before wearing one out the first few times though. Too bad the Utilikilts cost as much as a really nice new bag.

Repeat after me: I do not want to see a fast run up or a 360 by a kilt wearer.
