    A couple of times a year, I run group trips to the Highlands and Islands.

    This includes hiking in Skye and around the Fort William/Glencoe area - as well as a fair bit of driving the minibus.

    What are the Rabble's thoughts on the best choice of kilt for such activities - would you go with a 5 yarder, PV, lightweight or something else?

    I do a lot of hiking and hill-walking both here in North America and there in Scotland and Ireland. I hiked the Cobbler in a cotton Utilikilt survival model and that was a terrible decision. I wish I had worn a 4 yard box pleat wool kilt or a PV kilt. My favourites for active walking are balanced garments, a 4 yard box pleat or a low yardage knife pleat.

    I spend most of my summer in Ireland and depending on the summer the weather can be predictably unpredictable. But usually means rain showers or mist at the very least. Which is why I usually prefer wool.

    Here, in rural western Massachusetts, I prefer “semi-traditional” PV kilts. When the temperature reaches the low 30s C, and high humidity, wool is simply not comfortable for me.

    Enjoy!
