  • Hiking Kilt

    Thinking of getting a hiking kilt. Anyone know of any stores in the Northeast (or Albany area) that carry hiking kilts? Advice based on user experiences?

    I didn't even know this was a thing until you posted. I don't know of any stores carrying such an item but lots of web sites have them. Mountain Hardware makes one ($75) that shows up on multiple web sites including REI and Amazon. My guess is a good waist measurement is all you'll need for a proper fit.

      I know they make *rain* kilts which seems like a less clammy way of keeping rain out than full-on rain pants. As for hiking kilts, I'm insufficiently informed to understand their appeal ...

        I can understand the appeal. In theory, the Crotch Pot wouldn't work very well.

        If by appeal you mean it affords the opportunity to go commando ... baggy shorts kinda offer the same opportunity ... including the opportunity to accidentally expose dangly parts.

        Ticks + kilts + commando = bad day

      A friend of mine uses the Mountain Hardwear men's kilt and says it's the most comfortable thing he's ever worn hiking. Not sure if they still make it.

        Ran into a kilt hiker this weekend. On Algonquin I told him 'today is the day to hike in a skirt'. HA! I corrected myself on Wright.
