Modesto, CA -( 5.11 Tactical, the world’s leading innovator of purpose-built gear, today announced the reintroduction of its limited edition Tactical Duty Kilt.

The launch will include the debut of a new video featuring 2015 World Highland Games Champion Dan McKim and U.S. RECON Marine and Rudy Reyes putting the Tactical Duty Kilt to the test. The once fictitious Tactical Duty Kilt—which originally intended as an April Fools’ joke in 2012—is again available for purchase in the U.S. while supplies last. New this year, the product is available in Kryptek, a licensed camouflage pattern and color.

5.11 Tactical will donate a portion of every kilt purchased to the FBI National Academy Associates Charitable Fund, a foundation dedicated to providing care, relief and education for law enforcement members and their families. Additionally, a portion of proceeds will be donated to The Raider Project, a mentoring organization that aims to connect U.S. MARSOC and Marine Corps veterans with other veterans to help them transition successfully into the private sector. Since 2012, 5.11 Tactical has donated more than $60,000 to charity as a result of funds raised through Tactical Duty Kilt sales.

“The Tactical Duty Kilt started as an April fool’s joke, but the joke turned on us when our customers demanded the kilt,” said Tom Davin, CEO of 5.11 Tactical. “The kilt is seriously rugged, fully functional and enhanced for use on the most demanding missions. We’re even more honored to have the opportunity to better the lives of law enforcement and military nationwide with the Tactical Duty Kilt.”  

The Tactical Duty Kilt is designed to meet demanding needs of tactical operators. The kilt includes a durable Teflon finish and detachable cargo pockets with pistol and rifle magazine compartments. The product also features a reinforced knife clip area on its deep front pockets and ultra-durable 6.14 ounce TDU Ripstop material, making the Tactical Duty Kilt a customer favorite. Lightweight, wrinkle-resistant and highly breathable, the Tactical Duty Kilt features six belt loops with two front D-rings and can be purchased at and all 5.11 Retail stores.

Available in Black, Storm, Battle Brown, Tundra, TDU Khaki, Green and the newly launched Kryptek licensed camouflage pattern, the 5.11 Tactical Duty Kilt ranges from $74.99 to $89.99, depending on the color option selected.

Hell yes! I will be rocking this on my marathon ruck march in April.


Skirt, dress (not by any definition), kilt, whatever…. this is a great piece of kit. For those who have matured beyond the idea that their clothing defines their masculinity, and for those who are daring enough to push the envelope towards comfort, this kilt, skirt, whatever, is simply a great piece of kit that allows one more choices than pants or shorts. I own 5. When will the rest of you catch up?


I ordered one and as a Veteran I am secure in my manhood when it comes to wearing something my ancestors and living family wear today. Trousers were invented for horse riding 3000 years ago.The oldest pair found was on a Mummy 2600 years old. The Concept of pants did not really catch on until the invention of rapid fasteners. because there were many steps to removal for a bathroom break back in the olden days so Kilts were the standard wear. Now the only problem I for see is ensuring my manhood remains secure… This will be my 6th… Read more »

I’m sorry I know its Scottish tradition and all, BUT IT’S STILL A DRESS FOR GOD’S SAKE.


Nice sell but that caber is a little on the light side. I have 5 kilts this will be my 6th. I am a Fraser of Lovat from Loch Ness. Je Suis Prest! I molest cattle for fun because women are puny and breakable. The Games champion and world breaker for the longest time was one of my clan. Eric Fraser.

At least it would “cool the jewels”, I guess.


Not ever going to happen, and my grandfather came from Glasgow.


Anybody else see a gender flip in today’s society? I know it’s a “kilt”, but what about everything else like the freakin man bun, the FOM (father mom), and Hollywood’s fascination with making the male a dumbed down neanderthal.
