Olive Green Ultimate Utility Kilt with Comfort Waist
The ultimate utility kilt from UT Kilts is the definitive kilt in regards to comfort and function. This kilt has the most pockets out of all of our utility kilts including cargo pockets, slash pockets, rear pockets, and a secret, under-apron pocket. With this many pockets it will be a challenge for you to even come close to filling them up. However, this is not the best thing about this kilt. The UT Kilts exclusive Comfort Waist allows this kilt to go up in size without adjusting the look of your kilt. Just about every other utility kilt uses snaps or velcro to allow adjustment in the waist. Whenever you do that the kilt will not sit/look correct. You have to move your kilt to one side to get the front apron to align properly, which puts the side cargo pockets and rear pleats out of alignment (and vise-versa). Not with the Comfort Waist! An elastic waist built into the inside of the kilt that allows the kilt to expand without changing anything else on the kilt. It cannot be seen from the outside of the kilt. You can comfortably get 2-3 inches more room in the waist with our Comfort Waist (see sizing instructions below for details). We promise you will not find a more comfortable or functional kilt anywhere.

Sizing / Measuring
It is extremely important you follow our measuring video and order the size you need based on your measurement, not pants size. All of men's pants are labeled 2-4 inches smaller than what they actually measure. Please see our measuring video below or checkout or measuring page here.
If you measure an even size like 38 or 40, then order that exact size. If you fall in between sizes, you can order down to the nearest even size for a snug fit or up in size for a loose fit.
One of the biggest questions that also come up about sizing is weight loss / gain. If your waist fluctuates within 2-3 inches, you can order the size your waist will be at the smallest point of your fluctuation. When weight loss is a goal, you can order smaller. However, keep in mind that that the kilt should only be 2 - 3 inches smaller than what you measure (3 inches is pushing to the limit. 1.5 - 2 is best). For example, if you measure 45 but will eventually get down to a 42, you can order a 42. Just keep in mind the 42 will be a tight fit in the waist and hips until the weight comes off.
With that said, we always recommend ordering as close to your current waist measurement as possible for the best fit.

“Is that a banana in you’re pocket or are you happy see me? Neither, it’s a bottle of scotch.”
The Comfort waist Kilt is perfect. It is lightweight yet tough at the same time. It gets even better after a wash in the washing machine. I will be buying more utility kilts from this company in the future.
This is my second comfort waist kilt. The first fell to bits (and couldn’t be repaired by anyone, including UT Kilts) but this is much better quality. I wish the lifetime guarantee had been available for my first kilt!
The best available and my current favorite!
Loved my first one so much, I had to get a second one to wear when the first is being cleaned! Such a good fit, quality material, and so many pockets. You can’t go wrong with UT Kilt.
Let me first say I love both my kilts from UT Kilts but I'm bummed by the fact that I can't wear my UTK Ultimate Utility Kilt with Comfort Waist without a belt this kilt is a much looser fit than my UT Deluxe BLACKOUT Modern Utility Kilt in the same size, if I had it to do over I would definitely go down a size in this style, part of the the difference in fit may have to do with not having the front snaps and side buckles, it makes the bottom flair out more and not as snug a fit as I would like when working, it sucks when you have your hands full and you feel your kilt losing its fight with gravity.
That said I gave this only a four star rating where my UT Deluxe BLACKOUT gets a solid five.
I apologize for that not fitting like you want. We are always more than willing to exchange so you get the size you need.
I have just returned from 7 days in the N. Georgia mountains camping with my scout troop. The kilt had constant wear in a varied of weather, hot, damp and muggy days, rainy days and cold nights. The kilt was a great choice for the trip and environment. It is cooler in the day, warm at night. It was rugged and looked good; lots of comments from other BSA Troop leaders. And it was among good company for other troops had a smattering of UTKilt wearers as well.
That said I caution purchasers to size up form what every you think your measurements to be. Although the UTKilt is an "off the rack" vs a bespoke and custom fit kilt, the common kilt fitting rules apply. I explain below:
1) the kilt is most comfortable worn high, at or above the navel level. Size larger, maybe two sizes than your measurement. You can cinch the kilt with a belt but it is a tad unforgiving in the expanding waist front. This is true even with the 'comfort fit' option. Message: do NOT expect to use the comfort fit to give you greater girth options. It is a limited stretch fit, designed to give in wearing not compensate for growing girth and beer bellies.
2) And an off-the-shelf kit the waist to hip proportions are fixed. Another reason to size up vs sizing down. Your waist size if NO GUIDE to the proper kilt size. Measure three places, belly button, waist and hip and order the largest of the three with some to spare. E.g., a 44=> 46' or 46" = 48" and so on. Trust me on this.... you need to spare room. I made the mistake of ordering at the measured size expecting the expanding waist band of the stretch comfort waist to compensate. While it helped and allowed me to wear the kilt..... I blew it on the measurements. So, again, size yourself large, don't be vain be comfortable.
3) Commando vs under gear? I predict as others have said in various reviews, you too will soon discover that in the outback at least commando is most comfortable in hot weather. Sitting, especially in public, does require a) practice and b) a change in common practice. If you don't wear a sporran, you need to cross legs of tuck the apron down to cover vital junk form a public airing.
For those who already wear kilts, 'tis a different fit and a great and affordably addition to your kit and boodle. For newcomers to the world of kilt wearing...what are you waiting for? It is a great and affordable start.
I recommend the product, full stop!
Thanks for your great review! I do still always recommend measuring where you plan to wear it and ordering that measurement.
I bought this because I couldn't fit my old kilt (also from UTKilts) any more cause I grew out. It was a great choice. Nice and comfortable. I wore it for our college home opener and needless to say it was well received. Had at least 5 people ask about where I got it from. Outstanding work. Only downside was that I had wanted the black but it wasn't in stock in my size. Oh well there's always next time.
These comfort fit kilts are Perfect.. and as a bonus, ALL THESE POCKETS! Thank you UTKilts ! From fast shipping to a great value product, I can't recommend UTKilts enough.
