Main Points on Hiring or Buying A Kilt Pack
Best with a full 8 yard 16oz heavy weight kilt, as it sits, swings, hangs and looks a million times better than a 13oz medium weight kilt and it is not any warmer, it is the weight of the jacket that makes the heat build up. It is preferable to have a stain proofed kilt which is also beer proof.
Houstons have a super light weight well cut comfortable range of jackets compared to most jackets which are bulky heavy, boxy and not very comfortable to wear, as well as usually being far too warm to wear.
Seal skin, racoon, nutra, mink or grey fox are the best looking and wearing sporrans compared to most hire shops which are now having to use bovine, pony or rabbit which are not great looking.
4. AGE OF HIRE STOCK
Always ask about the age of hire stock, you don't want to have old tatty kilts on your special occasion.
