A kilt is a skirt-like garment worn by men. The clothing is believed to have been devised by Scottish Highlanders in the 16th century. With its evolving style and badge of tradition, the kilt continues to charm people with its delicious contrast. From makers of fashion and business to people-next-door looking for practical clothing, the kilt is for everyone.
Of late, the male skirt has become popular in fitness as well, becoming a favourite among people interested in exercise. Even if you are not a fitness enthusiast, but are interested in outdoor pursuits such as running, walking and hiking, here are some reasons why you should try a kilt:
There are no awkward moments or positions when trying to get into a kilt.
No standing on a single leg or stumbling as you may while trying to get into your tight trousers! Just wrap the garment around your waist and fasten. It takes less than a few seconds to wear a kilt. In addition, a kilt goes with any top-wear.
Forget wasting time in choosing suitable clothing for your fitness or hiking session. Be ready in a kilt within seconds!
Ease of Movement
The physical comfort that a kilt provides is perhaps unmatched. You can move anyways and assume any position – sit, stand, jump or squat.
Compared to tight pants, kilts give you the ease to go about your job efficiently. This is particularly useful when your fitness regime includes exercises that require you to get into different positions. There would be no need for awkward clothing adjustments.
Whether you are exercising, or out on hiking or involved in other physical activity, there is the discomfort of restricted air flow with tight pants. You feel the evidence of your physical exertion – sweat – sticking to your legs and groin.
Kilts offer generous space for airflow, which is thoroughly comfortable, refreshing and healthy. The comfort is even more pronounced on hot days.
Feel the cool air up your legs in a kilt!
From traditional to modern patterns, kilts are available in a range of styles and colours. You can choose from different materials as well, from leather to 100% handmade cotton kilts. There are also pocket-bearing varieties if you want to have your wallet or phone on yourself.
