5.11 kilts

Post by kiltguy1789 »

I saw an item in a police site that the 5.11 kilts are coming back! No details about when or what patterns/colors, but keep an eye out for them. :D

Last year I spoke with our local "5.11 Store" manager about the "Tactical Kilt".
He advised me that they only come out in the Spring(U.S.) and in limited quantities.

Keep your eyes open for them :D

I have several, and I have to agree, they are great! Lightweight, with a flat panel in the back instead of pleats. Easily the lightest weight and most compact packing utility kilt type thing I've found. Quality construction, and very good summer wear, though the material doesn't breathe as well as I'd like. It's a rip-stop nylon blend with a strain resistant treatment that makes it slightly water repellant. They also don't fall between your legs in the front when sitting as well as a Utilikilt, but what does? And they are a fraction of the price...

If the 5.11 kilts do come back, I'd like another one.
