    511 Tactical kilt is back

    It must be spring. 511 Tactical has their TDK Tactical Duty Kilt back on 1 April again. Great kilt for knocking around.

    Got my order in already!

    Well, I only have six of them, so it was time to order another couple of TDKs... especially since a few of my existing TDKs have shrunk (or, at least, that's what I tell myself) and no longer fit comfortably.

    They're certainly not for those who believe that the only "real" kilts are made from wool woven in a tartan pattern and worn at the natural waist, as they're about as "contemporary" as a kilt can get, but they're the most comfortable lower garments that I own - period. I'm just glad that I'm able to wear them to work on casual days.

    I was exited when I saw these back on the market, I had thought about buying one before but never got around it. For those of you who own these, how do they compare to other contemporary kilt companies like UT Kilts and Utility Kilts?

    I have 2 and just ordered 3 more. That might tell you i like them. 5.11 are much lighter than utilikilts. There are no pleats in back. The lack of pleats makes them very comfortable to drive in (i do a lot of road trips and driving). They seem to be a little snug on hips likely do to lack of pleats. These kilts are very tough. I wear them to work everyday.....im a general contractor. Hope that helps.

    I've looked at these before but can't find any information on a drop length so I'm not sure how measure my waist. Does anyone have one they could measure so I could get an idea on if I need to size at my jeans waist or my natural waist?

    I used pants waist last year and they are sligntly snug. I ordered larger size this year. If worn at pants waist....kilt hangs at bottom or below knee.

    For comparison sake, how tall are you?

    Im 5' 10" ish but short legged and long torso for height. I just measured kilt ...it is 24" from top of belt loop to bottom. They are designed to be worn like jeans.

    It is my understanding that the waistband on the TDK is exactly the same as the waistband on their tactical trousers.

    That's correct. The 5.11 is a very good kilt. I love that it has nice deep pockets and it's made from ripstop material that is almost wrinkle proof. My only objection is the overlap in front is a little short. There is a snap to keep it closed, but more material would be better.
