I'll begin with the black utility kilt from the Tartanista online shop. This kilt is a very comfortable fit made of heavy, yet soft black canvas. The Tartanista shop description says:
- Heavy Duty Cotton Drill Fabric
- Sewn down pleats on the back
- Carpenters Flap Pockets with studs on both sides
- Antiqued brass buckles and studs
- Internal studs for better hold
- 2 fabric straps with brass eyelets and buckles
The kilt is secured around the waist with two snaps, then attaches with a hook and loop strip, a second set of snaps and then finally secured with two buckles on the right hip. Belt loops make this kilt very easy to wear with a belt. The back pleats are sewn, sharp and very comfortable and the pockets on each side are very handy. No need for a sporran with this kilt.
I accidentally ordered this kilt too small at first and had to contact Tartanista for a replacement. Their customer service was great and while my return kilt was still being shipped they sent my replacement overnight. Now that's how you make a happy customer! I chose this kilt as the first one to wear all day and I have had it on today from morning until night. It looks and feels great and I highly recommend this kilt for someone searching for a comfortable utility kilt. My only complaint about this kilt is that it is just barely 23" long and my tall frame would love a 24" version. The Tartanista shop description says the 40" waist kilt is 24" long but mine measures exactly 23". It's not a major gripe but that extra inch would be nice. Still, a very comfortable utility kilt that I'm very happy with and highly endorse.
