They knew how to wrap up an extra piece of wool to keep "the boys" warm and they "did na suffer" in the cold. (Yes, I know my history well enough to know that they lost at Culloden - but it wasn't because of their clothing!!) A true authentic wool kilt is a heavy duty piece of clothing that would drag someone my size (think Hobbit) to the ground.
    you are now the official kilt inspector of wb.

    Why would any man wish to wear a skirt in an attempt to stay warm?

    Actually if you want to stay warmer, wear pantyhose.

    Until you've tried a kilt your expertise on the pros and cons of the subject is suspect.

    FOR SURE! My kilts are as warm or warmer than long pants with poly pro under and definitely more comfortabe.

    With my kilt (Skirt? ) & a pair of winteralls pantyhose, & can hike in windy (50 mph gusts) weather down to at least 29 (per weather report from the flatlands) wearing pants dosn't keep me that much warmer, so why bother, esp since I hate wearing pants.

    The OP said it was to have a quick on/off insulation for his legs, to be able to put on easily at rest stops.

    Yeah, yeah, I know. You still look like a girl wearing a kilt.

    No offense intended, do as you wish.
    It is not necessary for me to look like a girl to stay warm with all the clothing options available to us today.

    I fully understand the principles behind wearing a kilt, I'm just not going to wear a kilt any more than I'm going to wear my hiking pants below my ass & turn my cap sideways.

    Yep. When and if I ever get serious chaffing issues, I'll look into kilts. Til then, I'll stick with pants and shorts.

    I've never worn them as a blister preventative myself, but I will say that, when worn as an item of women's clothing, I often have problems with my toes punching through the thin nylon. Talk about causing pain and blisters... Some types are fairly sturdy, but some are quite delicate and don't last through even one day's walking around a city as a tourist.
    If not NOW, then WHEN?

    If it's that difficult for you to tell the difference I'm sure those around you are a bit skitish.

    You have demonstrated though that it's possible to show your ass no matter what you are wearing.

    Tell Sean Connery he looks like a girl in a kilt, I dare you.

    If you don't like kilts, don't wear one. If you aren't man enough to stand by while others wear one, you have more problems than I can help with.

    Haiku.
