In the bath towel you can wrap up, but there is no guarantee that it does not fall from the body with an awkward movement. Such warranties give kilt, as it has reliable fixing elements. All other kilt functions perform as a regular bath towel: they are wiping after the soul, it is laid out as a litter on a steam shelf.
What it is?
Men wearing skirts still in ancient Rome, the Greeks called the FASTENELLY, were skirts and in the wardrobe of Vikings. But Bath accessory took his name from the clothes of the Scottish Highlanders, it was called – Kilt. It was performed from woolen fabric into a cage or stuffing sheepskin. The skirt made it easy to move on hard mountain trails, and in winter, in a set with stockings saved from the cold. The deployed kilt was a small bedspread that could be covered, spent the night in a hunting house.
Modern bath kilts sew from terry, linen, bike materials that absorb moisture well and provide excellent air exchange.
Kilts are a natural rectangular cloth with an assembly on a rubber band along the entire length (on the waist) fixed by velcro. Unlike a bath towel, tied by a dubious node, Kilt gives confidence that the confusion situation with his owner will not happen.
Bath clothes for women and men look different. In men, she is fixed on the waist and goes down to the knees. Women’s cloth attached above the chest and also goes down to knees. Kilts are good for the bath and sauna, they can be used after the shower and bathing in the ordinary bathroom. They perform many functions and are endowed with different advantages:

- endowed with reliable fasteners+
- Made from natural, tactful pleasant materials+
- Do not shift movements+
- Perform hygienic functions+

All these advantages refer to a qualitatively seeded product. But some types of bath clothes are claimed.
- The most unsuccessful can be considered universal products intended simultaneously for men and women. As a result, for women, clothes are too short, and men in a baggy product with pockets at the very floor look comical.
- Velcro is poorly combined with a terry cloth and leave the weight of the hook.
- Wafer fabric, flax, or flannels are quickly wedged, impass and can shine.
Review of species
Despite a simple appearance, resembling a towel or a terry sheet, kilt has certain differences of a cut, intended for men, women, children. Besides, Products differ in the method of fixation, have fasteners of Velkro, ties, velcro.
Before the appearance of the first kilts, men were wrapped in towels who slipped and skipped movements. It is enough once to feel a comfortable pleasant canvas with a rubber band on the waist and a reliable clasp, to forever refuse to wind up the sheet that does not have a retainer.
Male kilt differs from female options by parameters. The rectangular canvas of the male product is wider, but shorter, since it is worn from the waist, and not from the chest. Models can be 2 species – to the knees and below the knees. The canvas is comfortable pan and fixed with velcro, fasteners or buttons.

Taking advantage of the terry killet, you can run out of the pool several times from the pool, shoot and put it on the wet body again.
