There are lots of people who wear kilts as a fashion apparel since they are incredibly comfortable, functional, and quite versatile. As temperature begins to rise, and Australian festivities and the season for partying starts, wearing utility kilts is perfect for the summer.

The good thing about modern utility kilts is that they are not as heavy as traditional kilts that are constructed principally of wool. Wool is unsuitable and quite unbearable to wear in hot weather.

 

Fabric Fit for Summer. 

It’s Warming Up in Here Cotton is the most preferred fabric that is used in clothing that is perfect for hot weather. Cotton can keep you cool whether you work indoors or outdoors. 

Modern utility kilts such as what we offer here at Ozkilts® are made of high quality cotton stretch material and durable blends, perfect for hot Australian summer days. This also means that your Ozkilts® kilt would be a perfect get up in tropical countries, whichever part of the world you are in.

Kilts made of cotton are even suitable to wear in formal summer events. Cotton kilts are one of the best piece of apparel for summer as they do not stick or cling to your skin, leaving you irritated and sweaty from sun exposure the way ordinary trousers or pants do.

Cotton kilts help in keeping you cool and comfortable due to the material’s breathability. The material suits almost every possible design, shape, and fit. And if you are concerned about maintenance, there is nothing as easy as cotton fabric.

Utility Kilts are Durable

One great advantage of utility kilts is their durability. A utility kilt is one of the most durable type of kilt available out there. You can wear them wherever and whenever you like and without a care in the world if they get ripped or teared apart.

Their durability and sturdiness are primary reasons why Ozkilt® wearers prefer our utility kilts over any other type of kilts.

 

Let’s Talk About Pockets

A traditional Scottish kilt typically comes without any pockets, carrying stuff around by wearing a sporran as part of the traditional Highland dress. Not a problem with utility kilts because you will have pockets that will allow you to easily store all of your stuff.

Ozkilts® Utility kilts are fitted with pockets that are detachable, which you may or may not use depending on your fancy or need. There are utility kilts that actually have more pockets than pants.

Having pockets on utility kilts can come in handy not only for storing your keys and stuff, but they are practically useful, especially if you wear them to work like our Workman Utility Kilts.
