Kilt rumors:

From the Utilikilts e-newsletter:

"The Spartan model is finished and in production. By the end of the month you will be able to order one of the most comfortable kilts ever made! The Spartan is ultra lightweight with a wide elastic waistband. Imagine a professional boxer's shorts, and you have a good idea of the Spartan kilt. Available for under $100."

*fret* I'm not sure I like this. Just to begin with, the only reason I personally can wear a Utilikilt is because the fabric is heavy and very downward-oriented. This "featherweight" thing sounds like a terrible idea, and it loses a lot of the sexy rugged appeal.

On the other hand, there's vague rumors of a "hiker's kilt" and a new version of the leather...

Sounds like the Spartan would make for good at-home lounge wear. Sorta like pajama pants are worn.

Yeah, but $100 a pop is a bit much for boxers that don't really do the important bit of concealing um...the important bits. It just seems like a bad product idea.

*snickers* I guess I'd have to see them on someone before making my mind up.

Light weight material with and elastic waistband?

Isn't that called a "skirt"?

*nod* Like I said, I'm waiting to see them on someone. It sounds like a bad idea (which would probably make the experience of seeing it on someone more entertaining).

Yay, Utilikilts photo catalog...

It's not a good idea to make kilts too light, as I'm sure the British army can attest. This is judging from all of the "oops" pics taken when it was windy, that are currently circulating around the 'net. ;)

*nod* the "original" UK's are pretty lightweight material, and I get nervous wearing mine on a windy day. Ain't nothing moving the leather model, though.

That's pretty much the reason I opted to not get a urban cammo utilikilt. Love the pattern, but I'd prefer my 'kilt with a little more helt to it. A guy gotta have some secrets, right?

With the neo-trad wrap-around, there's enough weight up front, and the snaps take away a lot of fabric flexibility, that you get to keep your secrets. I've never had a revealing moment, except for when I fell asleep wearing it and-or forgot how to sit in a skirt. But that's user error, not equipment failure.

Hiker's kilt? With little handles making it easier for people to hike it up? 8)

Right. Don't wear the hiker's kilt around you in mixed company. Or any company. Duly noted :)
