MODESTO, Calif., April 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 511Tactical.com 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.
