Hiking Kilt – Buchanan Ancient


Hiking Kilt – Buchanan Ancient

Microfiber material for hiking and adventures, made in the USA!

Waist Size *

Using a measuring tape, wrap it around your waist where you'd like the top of your kilt to sit. Don't hold in your stomach!. Usually this measurement is larger than the waist-size of your pants. You might consider giving yourself an extra inch, or so, for comfort. That will be the ideal waist measurement to order.

Please Note: We cannot accept returns or exchanges on any custom made garment. Measure carefully!

Buckle Closure

You can add two 1" wide black leather straps and nickle-plated buckles to the opening end of your Sport Kilt. A functional, traditional looking adjustable double strap.  You can also choose a Nylon Buckle Strap option as well. 

While all Sport Kilts are secured with Velcro at the waistband, you can give your kilt that custom look (and added security) by adding buckles and straps.

Belt Loops

Although you don't need a belt to hold up your kilt, we'll be glad to add 'em so you can wear your favorite belt.

Belt loops can also be used to thread your sporran "chain-belt" through. This is the traditional use of belt loops on a kilt.

TIP: Belt Loop size should be at least 1/4" larger than the belt width in order to have room for the belt hardware, e.g., the keeper.

Please note: We cannot accept returns for customized goods, i.e., belt loops, sewn pleats, custom length. Please measure carefully!

Hidden Side Pockets

Now you can have us add 2 hidden side pockets to your Sport Kilt. You won't even know they're there unless you're looking for them, or you've got your hands in your pockets.

A great custom option for those that have to have pockets on their kilts!

Please allow us a couple of days to customize your kilt with pockets before your order ships.

Custom Length *

Use a measuring tape, instead of using your pant size. This will determine your waist measurement.

The ideal kilt length: While kneeling, measure from the top of your waist (where you'd wear your kilt) to the floor. Some say your kilt should just brush against the ground when you are kneeling. Of course personal preference is the rule! Have it YOUR way.

Note:  Ultimate and Commando kilts tend to sit higher on the waist (more like a traditional kilt) than our standrard Sport Kilts. Therefore, you may want to add an extra inch or two in length to compensate. If in doubt, be assured that ninety five percent of the time, our standard size Medium-long, large, XL, abd XXL length of 22.5 inches will fit most guys 5' 10" and 6' 2" tall. 

Please Note: We cannot accept returns for customized goods, i.e., belt loops, sewn pleats, custom length. Measure carefully, please!

    For an entire month, I wore my Buchanan Ancient hiking kilt while walking 500 km (311 miles) on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain. Lots of positive feedback from other pilgrims. It was comfortable and I felt great wearing it. Somehow, I originally ordered it too large in the waist and then I incorrectly remeasured the kilt before sending it back for resizing. Since I was running out of time before leaving, I added an extra belt loop of my own to keep it closed, which worked fine and wasn’t noticeable. I have a 34″ inseam and I could have probably used an extra inch or two of length beyond the standard 22.5″ so I wore it low on my hips.

    Looks really nice. Very colorful. Haven’t hiked in it yet. If you are a long range hiker concerned about every ounce of weight, you should be aware that this kilt weighs about 22oz which is twice as much as the Black Watch Weathered hiking kilt at about 11oz. According to Sport Kilt, the tartan has to be pleated a certain way and the pleats are much smaller which means more material is needed.
