I got this in an email from 5.11 just a little bit ago:


Friends in the 5.11 Tactical Community,

About a month ago our lead designer, Cory Nykoluk, came to me with the idea to have some fun on April 1st with a 5.11 Tactical Duty Kilt. "We've had a number of requests for kilts, so why not make one?" Cory had enlisted our creative services director, Matt Frederick and our director of ecommerce, Brian Rogers. I gave the project a green light with the commander's guidance to make the "TDK" a true 5.11 product supported by a proper launch. Operational security was strict as only about 6 people inside 5.11 knew about this project. In fact, the only reference in meetings and e-mails was to "Project Caber."
Our close friend Kyle Lamb, President of Viking Tactics, was briefed and signed on immediately. It turned out he was about to attend a Dropkick Murphys concert. Perfect timing as band member, Scruffy Wallace, is a kiltsman who plays bagpipes and the tin whistle in a VTAC T-shirt. The final piece needed was an athlete/first responder to demonstrate the mobility of the TDK. Matt Frederick called Roman, a veteran duty sheriff and Parkour athlete and we were rolling.
Last week, when we reviewed the video footage of Roman leaping walls in the TDK - it was clear - we had achieved the goal of making a Kilt true to the 5.11 brand. There was a collective "uh-oh, we only have one kilt in inventory!" On Saturday, March 31st, I called 5.11 Tactical founder, Dan Costa, to tip him off. His response: "Be ready, you're going to sell some kilts!"
Indeed, the Tactical Duty Kilt launch was a success, so it seems the April Fool's Day joke is on us! Due to your positive response, we are pleased to announce that the Tactical Duty Kilt will become available for pre-orders soon on the following web page: http://www.511tactical.com/Tactical-Duty-Kilt.html. We don't plan to make the TDK an "in-line" product, so this is a limited time, web only offer. If you haven't already signed up for notifications on when this product becomes available for purchase, please do so now at http://www.511tactical.com/Tactical-Duty-Kilt.html and give us your name and e-mail address in the form located on the right-hand side of the page. We plan on sending out 1 more email to those that have given us their information to confirm size and color and other important ordering details.
5.11 Tactical Duty Kilts will be available in Black, Khaki, and OD Green (MultiCam will be offered at a slightly higher price) in even waist sizes 30- 40 for a very limited time - don't miss out. Remember we only have one in inventory today, so we'll need some time to make them for you!
Thanks for your friendship, sense of humor and support of 5.11 Tactical. I'm signing off to place my Tactical Duty Kilt order!

I wouldn't wear a kilt unless it was my family's tartan.

I have researched our tartan, my grandfather's name was McCandless, and have found it.

The cheapest kilt package in your tartan is over a thousand bucks. I don't have that to spend on a frivolity right now, but I might in the future. I would really like to have one.

Same for me. This website has several of my family's tartan patterns but to have a traditional kilt made would cost me $1330:shocked:

I have little choice.
There is a Royal debate as to my maternal family's name spelling.
We have documents citing each variation for the same person.

And then there are the modern colors, ancient colors, and company vs. clan colors. And there is the pipe band with the same family name. Gah !

So I went with Olive Drab......

From what I gather; not uncommon. Coat of Arms thing I have claims:
"The same person was born with one spelling, married with another, and on his gravestone, yet another."

As far as the tartan colors, get what you like!

No amount or armor will stop Silent_Runner from hurting whatever part of you she fancies at the moment.

Only way to be safe is to escape into outer space, live in Barsoom and hope she doesn't find you.
