Any tips for a burner newbie? I'm going to Nowhere in Spain, not Burning Man itself. I've selected a barrio already. Any pointers for a kilt that's suitable for 40°C days, as well as potentially cold nights, preferably with pockets?

I don't know anything about Nowhere, or much about burning man, but if you are looking for a practical kilt with pockets check out the utilikilt store.

They are in Seattle but you can order online.

The pointer is uber duber capilene longjohns under. Unless they're verboten by your druidtribe. In which case better start using hairtonic and thickening your legpelts.

Response by poster: Ahh, I've fairly advance longjohns that I never wear, sounds good. I suppose kilt with longjohns doesn't adequately replace emergency jeans though, huh?

I'm infinitely more concerned about how kilts fare when it's hot outside though. Any thoughts about materials or heat? I suppose nudity really sounds like the best option if temperatures actually exceed human body temperature (37°C) though, fare enough.

In hot weather, especially with a breeze, kilts can be amazing if you're wearing them commando. Even if there is no breeze, just do a subtle little hoola-hoop kind of motion and its like free air conditioning.

Sportkilt. I have one in the California State Tartan, and it is awesome. Lightweight in the heat, probably do well on the cool Playa nights.

Response by poster: Nowhere was amazing. I should go to Burning Man next year.
