Hash House Harriers Hunting Kilt
The Hash Kilts were conceived by members of the Society of Kilted Hashers, as trail-worthy, washable kilts for the world hash. The notion was to design a tartan, using G’s regimental tartan as a pattern, with the hash colors of green for shiggy, brown for mud and dirt, blue for water crossed, red for blood shed, white for trail, and amber representing our beverage of choice.
A number of tartan designs were evaluated and two selected and certified by the STA as Hash House Harriers Trail, for the golden sett, and Hash House Harriers Hunting for the darker, hunting tartan.
The Hash Kilt is box pleated to the stripe, as was G’s kilt, a rarely-used traditional method which makes for a more distinctive trail kilt. Hashers everywhere can enjoy the pleasure and comfort of a Hash Kilt, in the tartan of their choice, with the options of the original Sport Kilt, and models for men and women.
The Hash House tartans come with our Sewn Down BOX Pleats option included free. ON ON!
Brilliant! No kidding. This is my second Sport Kilt and the first is fairly subdued in color, so this one is brilliant by comparison. Compared to the hiking kilt this one is more comfortable, thicker more luxurious fabric, and according to my wife “looks more like a kilt”. It is early days yet, but I think I prefer the box pleats to the knife pleats. As for the purchase, good service to Canada, prompt shipping and the product is first rate. Well done, Sport Kilt Team.
Solid service, great product, quick delivery. I’m really happy with the quality and comfort of the new kilt. The dark HHH pattern is “more kilt-like” according to my wife.
This kilt was purchased for my youngest son. He loves it! He’s already run a 5K trail run in it.

Great Customer Service!
First kilt I’ve ordered (H3 Hunting) and I love the fit, colours and wearability! I live in Toronto, so the shipping was a bit pricey, and I had an issue with the fit at first being a borderline size. I should have picked up the phone for a quick conversation before ordering probably. Anyways, James on the service line was fantastic resolving the issue and I’m extremely happy with the kilt I have now! On on!
Love My HHH Kilt
I love this kilt, I will be getting another and another and another…well you get the idea. My only issue is I should have added a maybe a 1/2 inch as I tend to rip out the pleats. Of course, this has made me find a great alteration store.
I run with the Flying Irish running club. It is great to run in. I did get the pockets and recommend getting them. It is also comfortable after the run while downing liquid refreshment. Women love a man in a kilt.

Lovin’ my kilts
Fun to wear, very good quality. The fabric is heavy enough to stay down even when running on trail; it doesn’t fly up Marilyn Monroe style. Thread colors in both the Hunting & Trail kilts are the same (or extremely similar). The darkest thread is about Guiness brown, not black as it may seem in the photos here. I own both HHH tartans & to me the Hunting seems more formal because of its darker colors.
The optional pockets are well worth it, in my opinion. Theyâ€™re HUGE & can hold lots of stuff, holes for the pockets are barely noticeable. Warning: donâ€™t have something heavy like a digital camera in the big side pockets while running, â€˜cause the camera will be swinging low, back & forth, can hit ya hard down there. The fabric does pill a bit over time, making it a bit fuzzy; very minor issue though. Fast & excellent service. Definitely ordering another kilt. On on!
Well done well made

I love my kilt! I ordered the men’s large since I typically wear a 35/36 inch waist… my kilt however is a bit big. I had to punch additional holes in the buckle straps to get it to fit better. Next kilt I order I will ensure that I get belt buckles for a better fit.

Sport Kilt Review
The sport kilt is very stylish. I enjoy wearing it and fits very nice. Nice colors!!
The kilt fits great and looks even better. The quality of material and workmanship are excellent. Light in weight and great for hashing. Love it. Thanks sport kilt.

A kilt heads down under
I ordered 2 kilts (one for a friend) in the Hash House Harriers Hunting tartan. What surprised me was the amount of Sport Kilt’s “generous” cut – I could have done with a L instead of the XL I ordered. After a few minutes on the sewing machine my wife had moved the leather straps and it now fits perfectly. The quality of the manufacture is excellent with attention to detail evident.

Like Sampsons long hair…
…my kilt gives me a strange kind of power. I got it on Saturday morning, wore it downtown in Songtan, South Korea, and within 10 minutes two women lifted it up to answer the age old question. “What’s underneath?”
Satisfied? Yes, very.
I’ve yet to wear it on trail but I’m sure it’ll do just fine.
My first Kilt
I purchased a Sports Kilt prior to running the, “2009 Reach the Beach Relay” http://www.rtbrelay.com. This was my first time I ever ran in a kilt and I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable it was. My second leg was in the middle of the night and the kilt kept my knees warm even with temps in the low 40’s. There was a mixed bag of reactions from other runners the women were positive about it, most men kept referring to it as a skirt so much so I stopped correcting them. I’ll keep wearing it and spread the word of these wonderful garments.

I received this kilt before heading out of town, assured it would arrive on time. It did. (Thanks Seamus). I’d packed my Utilikilt Workman but never wore it. The comfort, fit and swing of this lighter weight kilt made me reach for it every morning. Many people ask ‘why’ I wear a kilt because it’s so unfamiliar to their world, but a simple “because I can” says it all. This won’t be my last Sport Kilt.
My first H3-Hunting Sport Kilt
A great choice for the hash trail or on-after. The sizing is true but those who are on the line will have to decide to go up a size. I ordered a large as a 33″ waist and had the elastic taken in a bit to tailor the fit. Otherwise, I love the kilt!
