    New from Tennessee

    Hello and thanks for letting me join. While I am very interested in my Scottish heritage and the culture, my experiences with kilts so far has been limited to utility kilts.

    I am very active and have been delighted to discover how comfortable a kilt is for hiking. So far I have worn a kilt for a half-dozen day hikes, and don't ever want to go back to shorts or jeans.

    The last three months I have been wearing a lightweight, ripstop kilt to run outdoors. I have discovered via trial and error that 40 is the magic number for wearing my kilt vs. shorts. Anything higher it's too hot, but for anything under (so far down to 25) it's awesome! Very warm, not restricting, etc. I even ran a personal record in it at a local 5K.

    I usually run downtown at lunch, so I get a few "looks", and an occasional compliment. I'm past the IGAF age, so utility over fashion!

    Well met and welcome new friend. It sounds like you're prepped to run races at Highland games (if you haven't already). Glad to have you with us.

    For the old folks (like myself that don't do letters over words) igaf translates, "I give a F%#*". I have a grandson with all the answers but expect he will wise up and grow out of it. Until then, he is delighted when he can teach me something.

    Welcome from a Scotsman living in middle England. We don't have 40 degree heat here - I think it would be a bit much for kilt-wearing! (Though it may depend on the kilt)
