" Why You Need a Tactical Kilt

Great for the range, competing in your own kilt-off, or just about any activity that requires you to stay mobile and ready for anything while still looking exceptionally cool, a 5.11 Tactical Duty Kilt may be the best wardrobe decision you’ve ever made."

Got to admit I've never owned one.  The original Utilikilt must have been around for 15 years or more and I was a little tempted when they first appeared.  :D

I've got a Utilikilt (just khaki, not camo) and love it. Don't wear it awl that much, I have to confess, but absolutely love it when I do.

The big cargo pockets are detachable, and I don't use those.....because I don't need that much space and the main pockets are huge....but if I did need to carry a 6-pack of beer and a power drill, they might come in handy.....

My cargo pockets are a bit different, though.

One of my neighbors is big into historical renactments as a hobby, and it's not unusual to see him getting the mail in a kilt (actually, for a time, his doctor recommended he wear one).  However, if I'm in full traditional Highland attire, I can wear a Sgian Dubh even where prohibited by law.   I'm half Scottish, and there is a tartan for my family. I don't have a kilt yet, however.

As for me, PASS.  My Aramark cargo pants and Dickies work shorts work just fine. Anything they can't fit is why I own a backpack.

The original tactical kilt



(Image removed from quote.)

Yeah, you've got to think that's where the idea came from.  The original Army version was a full wrap around "apron" that was worn over your regular kilt though. :) Had a built in pocket that replaced the sporran while in the field.

Sadly I am a bit interested in these.  When I wear my kilt I'm usually frustrated by the lack of pockets!

I really like my Utilikilt. Pockets and pockets.

And freedom!   ;)

A sporran is a very good 'pocket' for stuff that's possibly more convenient that side pockets on trousers or so I've found. I've worn the kilt a few times I have Scottish parents, weddings, etc and it's ridiculously comfortable. Somehow my brother managed to nab my dad's kilt when he moved to the US which was rather annoying, I'd wanted it! :)

Good afternoon,

I’m enjoying my Damn Near Kilt’em greenhorn. Very very rugged and comfortable. The military green was an excellent colour choice. Just make sure to follow their measuring instructions. I did and mine fits perfectly. Now to figure out which one I want next. I’m thinking the DNKE stowaway in brown. I’m working up to a traditional kilt (Stewart weathered hunting tartan) and going pants free forever.   

Thanks

I've long liked the look of cargo kilts, although never splashed out on one. Great to see so many here enjoying them!

I once wore a kilt to a Halloween party. Part of a schoolgirl's uniform, made saucy. I coordinated the outfit with a latex mask of a local male news presenter. :D

Allegedly my family has claim to a number of different tartans, but I chose the Hunting Stewart for my first (and so far only) kilt.

Hmmm, I'm not sure I have a family tartan but my grandfather fought with the H.L.I during WWII (Dunkirk, Normandy, Antwerp) and they wore the Mackenzie tartan so that might be appropriate in honour of his service. His father was wounded at the Somme but family history doesn't record which regiment he served with.

Some of our Scottish members may have better/more input than me, but in my experience the "correct" tartan is a matter of interpretation in a lot of cases.  Many tartan makers nowadays will design your own personal tartan, whether you are Scottish or not.

I actually developed a Multitool.org tartan a while back, in case anyone wants an MTO kilt!  :D

In a semi- related story, my Scottish cousin once committed the ultimate sin and married .....  an English.   *gasp*

Her mother refused to go to the wedding for the longest time, although eventually relented,  only to see not only the groom wearing a kilt, but also his Indian best man!

 :ahhh

There was great upset...

 a non-Scottish wearing a kilt.....   these modern times,,,,

A marriage between a Scottish girl and an English man ...... is it even legal?

I think if it is unique you can even have it registered in Scotland (whether or not you are Scottish). That is what sport-clubs do that partake in highland-games (or maybe there is a separate registry for clubs and for families).

My dad who is fiercely Scottish would object to me ever referring to myself as English despite the trifling fact that I was born and grew up there. :) His response would be: "If a foal is born in a pig sty does that make it a pig?"  :rofl:

Now I want a Kilt, and can officially wear one too!
My mother's side is Scottish, my father's side Welsh.
I think the space provided by a Sporran combined with a Dirk tucked into the sock would nicely take care of EDC needs  :tu:

My aunt is very old school like that!  I believe everything in the house is tartan!
