Designed to meet the demanding needs of duty-driven professionals, this is 5.11 Tactical's version of a traditional kilt, which includes a durable Teflon® finish and detachable cargo pockets with gun magazine compartments. Product features such as a reinforced knife clip area on its deep front pockets and ultra-durable 6.14 ounce TDU ® Ripstop material, have made the 5.11 Tactical Duty Kilt a customer favorite. Lightweight, wrinkle-resistant and breathable, the Tactical Duty Kilt features six belt loops with two front D-rings and can be purchased 511Tactical.com.
5.11 Tactical is donating $10 of every kilt purchase to We Salute You Veterans Foundation—a non-profit organization providing housing and services to veterans in need—and the FBI National Academy Associates, Inc., a non-profit organization providing law enforcement expertise, training, education and information for the continued improvement of law enforcement standards.
