One of the first competitors of Utilikilts was Amerikilt. I like the straight forward design without cargo pockets. To my opinion It is so much better than that of any other utility kilt on the market - except for the Utilikilt Mocker, which is no longer available. Instead of the pockets the Amerikilt comes with a detachable sporran made in the same fabric and color as the kilt.
If it had not been that the fabric is prone to wrinkle, the Amerikilt would certainly be my favorite utility kilt brand. But due to this I hardly wore them, since I bought them back in 2003 and my Saffron has long ago gone to the dustbin. Then. however, I some day became aware of a possible solution. Another user claimed that after some washings the kilt would actually become more wrinkle resistant. I tried it out, and actually it seems to help. Thus I have started wearing my olive Amerikilt again. The fabric is light weight and on a hot day the kilt feels most comfortable. But at low temperatures you might want some extra protection.
