Sporrans

L & M Highland is very proud to provide sporrans for many Military units in Canada and the United States, our sporrans have become synonymous with Military quality the world over. We at L & M feel it is a priviledge to provide these uniform components to such honourable and prestigious units. From Parade Squares to Mess Dinners to Military Tattoos and much, much more, L & M sporrans can be seen on many of the most recognizable Military uniforms in service today. We also still can create many historically accurate sporrans that are part of retired Military unit kits. Our sporrans will hold up under constant use and in all types of weather. Our sporran makers will mount your Regimental badge during the assembly process to ensure a sturdy, problem free product. We are happy to work with you to develop a custom sporran design for your unit if none presently exists.

Badger Full Mask 6 Tassel Military Sporran

The full mask or head on sporran is the oldest form of sporran, they have been used for 100s of years. The pelts of wild animals would be used when the animals were captured for food, that way none of the animal was wasted. Today we still use this age old style of sporran, mainly for dress occasions. Some Highland Military Regiments also use full mask sporrans as part of their dress uniform.

This is undoubtedly one of our most distinctive sporrans! It features a full mask badger with six horsehair bristle tassels on serrated gilt cones with red leather accents. The 6 tassels hang from beautiful decorative knotwork made from gold cord. This is one of the most impressive sporrans to be found anywhere in the world and is the Officer’s sporran of both the Argyll and Sutherlands Regiment as well as the Calgary Highlanders Regiment.

All L & M full mask sporrans are very lifelike and true to the animals form and feature a full pouch that can be accessed by lifting the head portion.
