Our newest Hiking Kilt featuring vivid shades of blue, cobalt, black, and green. Thiarloch is the Gaelic translation for “Western Lake” and we think it represents some of the beautiful lakes in the West pretty well.
Made from microfiber material, similar to boardshorts or swim-trunks, this material packs down small, dries quickly, and is lightweight for maximum mobility.
Cool, quick drying, breathable, lightweight (330 grams!) microfiber kilt for the active hiker who wants to trek in ultimate comfort and style.
Hiking Kilt Standard Features Include: 22 1/2″ length, Sewn-down-pleats, Velcro closure with a touch of elastic in the waistband for comfort and adjustability.
Designed for hikers, by hikers!
Please note: We always do our best to meet your deadline, so let us know when you need it for your next adventure.
When choosing custom options like belt loops, leather buckle straps, or pockets, please allow 3-10 days for customization. Anything longer than our standard length can take up to 1-3 weeks to build from scratch.

I purchased one in Thiarloch after having one in Black Watch. Unfortunately, the Thiarlock material is heavier, less breathable, and hotter than the Black Watch material. I more it on a 60 degree day and it was hot. It will be ok in cooler weather, but not what I was expecting or wanting for the summer.
Did a triathalon wearing my Thiarloch Hiking Kilt, and not only was it super comfortable to run in, and easy to put on in the transition area, but I got tons of cheers and smiles.

I have just received my kilt. The 21 inch was 20.5 inches. While this is a minor difference, anyone who knows about kilts know that this is important for the kilt not to look like a kilty (highland dance) or skirt. I am 5’11. The belt loops seem unnecessary as there is a velcro stretchy waist on this kilt. The pocket on the right is blocked by the strap.
Steven – our sincere apologies your kilt was 1/2″ shorter than requested. Our custom sewing team are human and they do make mistakes from time to time. We’d be happy to make you a replacment if you want to send it back to us. We like to think of the buckle straps as a security device for the contents of your right pocket. Of course, you don’t need to add both pockets and buckle straps to your kilt, but if you do, yes there’s going to be one strap over the right pocket.

Wore this kilt hiking in the Andes. Hiked the same trail five years ago and sweat. This time I was completely comfortable. Was worried the locals may object since they are pretty traditional but on the contrary, they all were laudatory and knew I was wearing the “famous Scottish clothing”.
I did a 5 day ultralight backpack trip in the Uintas a few years back, I wore my hiking kilt every day, (after we summitted Kings Peak, during the scramble back down, I had to warn the peeps coming up that I was in kilt mode, not skirt mode. ) I have also wake surfed and paddle boarded in my hiking kilt. Fantastic product, the board-shorts of kilting.

Sport Kilt hiking kilts are perfect. Lite, dry fast, rugged. Perfect for hiking, especially in hot weather.
Bought it for hiking long distances on hot days. Now I hate pants.
I bought this Thiarloch Hiker just as Sport Kilt was changing the pattern on its other blue hiker. I was told it was going to be the first one sold in the new design. The pattern and color are perfect. The fabric is light, cool, and wicks away moisture very well. That is a big plus in SW Louisiana. Needless to say it really turned heads during the monthly Fort Polk golf tournament. It didn’t improve my golf game but I felt like a winner on the links. I plan to wear it as often as possible. Thanks Sport Kilt
