    J Walking Designs Mens Running Kilt - Review.

    J Walking Designs Mens Running Kilt - Review.

    I ran across this site http://jwalkingdesigns.com/collections/all looking for lounging/swim kilts.

    They come in this green blue and also red plaids for $62 with free shipping.

    NOTE: I think these are pants sized not kilt sized. My 33 kilt waist should have gotten a small - the medium is ok but small would be more secure if I loaded the pocket.

    The text and pictures leave a bit to be desired on details of the kilts so I will try to flesh it out for you.

    They have a full circle covered 3 inch wide soft elastic waist band. A step in kilt.

    The material is, I guess, polyester spandex - she says "84% recycled plastic bottles and 16% spandex".

    Being slick material, a little care is needed as the aprons like to slide open when seated.

    The front aprons are near full width conventional overlapping (wider at the bottom - front and under apron) except the under pleat on the left of the top apron is tapered - wider at the bottom. I appreciate that the plaid is centered on the front apron - details matter.


    under apron:

    The tapering of the front apron and back "apron" leaves the plaid at a diagonal for the sides where they are seamed together.
    No pleats here, but they don't seem to be needed with split front aprons and 3 tapered underpleats total.

    The back "apron" is under pleated with a taper at both sides. Just under the waist band at center back is a zipper pocket - 5x5 inch. Enough for wallet, cellphone and maybe keys also.

    UPDATE: I am back from my dog walk in this. It provides absolutely no restriction to my legs! I have the Sport Kilt Hiker and it's aprons drag enough to notice on my thighs, not this one.
    Maybe, finally a knee length purpose built running kilt that won't weigh down with sweat. The other men's running kilts I have seen on line are so short that I think they are just ladies kilts renamed.

    No wind today so the Marilyn test will have to wait.

    Posted in general forum because this is neither traditional or contemporary, its purpose built Sports apparel that meets most of the definition of kilt.

    Pants is only a present tense verb here. I once panted, but it's all cool now.
