    USA Kilts has a couple videos discussing tweed kilts:

    Bright, indeed, and a pretty nice one, too: the 77th Army Pipe Band (Fires). It would suit the brief of being lighter & less "heavy" looking than my #1 kilt.

    I believe I found it here:

    However, it looks to be restricted "[f]or the exclusive use of members or former members of the 77th Army." That ain't me, so I won't tread on their playground.

    Thank you for the pointer.

    Cheers,
