    Horses for courses...I hate those buckles.

    You have to get the things lined up just right or only one of the prongs will hit its mark.

    To me the ordinary civilian buckles are the easiest to buckle, especially getting dressed quickly and/or in poor light, as we pipers sometimes end up doing.

    Beyond aesthetics (always a matter of opinion, of course!) it certainly seems dubious what benefit a two-pronged buckle would offer in a military context beyond making them a bit tougher to attach properly. Iím not surprised theyíve switched to a more standard style.

    Having worn single (on the newer kilts) and two prong(on the older kilts) I have to say I prefer the two prong model. I can't ever say I had any issues with the two prongs not lining up. I was a lot thinner back in those days though..
