Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of myself actually hiking, but here's me on the ferry at VVR in my hiking skirt.
The nice thing about the ElKommando kilt that the female Utili-Kilt doesn't appear to have is room to actually move. I'd like to be able to climb over a fallen tree, thanks. The ElKommando is pretty comfortable. I don't know what benefits a man gets from a kilt, but the benefits I get are thus:
1. Less cheek exposure when peeing (sans my "device")
2. More mobility than shorts or pants (none of that low hanging crotch business)
3. No bunching and riding up around my fat thighs like shorts
4. Hides fat thighs better
And the best one of all:
5. Skipping down the trail in a skirt and a tiny pack really makes the macho 60lb pack haulers frightened and embarrassed. I can imagine them thinking, "How can that little chick make it look so easy? Why are we such big scardey cats we have to haul around so much gear? Ha, we'll show her. Let's try to catch up to her and pass her and show her we're strong and manly." Ha! They'll catch me when I'm kicking back at the top of a pass, maybe, if they even make it that far. I love being so petty and mean-spirited.
