  1. That would be a sporran, think of it as a fanny pack since kilts have no pockets.


  2. I always thought it was just a decorative element to conceal the bulge and help keep the junk from flopping around too much.


  3. It is a sporran pocket or pouch


  4. It’s called a sporran. It functions as a pocket, which kilts don’t have.


  5. It’s called a sporran. Kilts have no pockets so you wear this sweet little purse cum codpiece to carry your bits and pieces.

    PS The knife traditionally worn in the sock is a sgian dubh.
