Day Sporran

2011-12-22

We recently made our annual last-possible-minute order from Amazon.com, and knowing I would need one before too long I snuck in a cheapo day sporran:

Black leather day sporran

It’s nice enough for the price I paid, and will be a good knock-around accessory. I’m glad to have spent some time lurking around discussion forums, though; this sporran, like many inexpensive ones, came with a chain which is attached to two d-rings on the back of the sporran with a couple of clips, like so:

D-ring and clip

What I’ve read repeatedly is that over time, those cheap clips will snag on the front of a kilt and make rough, raveled patches; better to invest in a solid leather strap (a long, skinny belt will suffice.)
