Ask, and ye shall receive

A couple of days ago -- well, 01 APR, truth be told -- my Inbox lit up with the news that 5.11 was making a Tactical Duty Kilt.

Mindful of the date, but still hopeful, I put my name in the "Notify me when this product becomes available" slot.

None-the-less, I was not surprised to learn that 5.11 was pulling a bit of an April Fool's joke. I chuckled, murmured something along the lines of, "Oh, well played, lads" and moved on along.

Today I learn (to my delight) that apparently the joke is on 5.11: They've had so many requests for the Tactical Duty Kilt, that they're going to do a limited-run of the kilts.

Huzzah!

Now, I don't know if the TDK is going to sold for the $59.99 listed on the web-page, but I'm here to tell you -- as someone who has purchased the odd kilt or two in the past -- 5.11 could double the price and still be half of what most other comparable kilts ask on the Internet.

If you're interested in a limited-run, Official Tactical Kilt from 5.11, you might consider popping over there and letting them know about it.

I am not a fan of 5.11 --or any of the rest of the tacticool smarm-- but being a fan of all things kiltish, I would be extremely interested.

For you, LD, and our shared ancestors:

Thanks. I went and added my name to the list. I can always use another kilt (I only have 5, but only 3 are good for daily wear)

I added my name in their "Lemme Know" inbox too, after reading about them thru Kilted to Kick Cancer on FB, and passed along the link to a kilt-loving friend for her hubby to wear around the house, instead of his fancy dry-clean-only one.

Oh well, I might actually get one :-)

Listen to me people. I've seen LawDog's kilts and they are odd.

I have a friend that is tripping over himself to get one of these.

Mr. 'Dawg, I saw this story and couldn't help but think of the Pink Gorilla Suit, though it was no doubt, er, pinker than the bunny suits: http://now.msn.com/now/0329-easter-cops.aspx

Probably best not to forward it to the Sheriff, lest he get Ideas.

My hubby and I placed our names in the "We wants!" list and, yes, were a bit surprised to hear direct from 5.11 that - yes - they will make this for a limited run. So we went ahead and placed our order. After all, it oly took me 4 years to utterly destroy my 5.11 tacticle cagoes....

A little late to the comment party, but don't you think that 2 30 rd AR magazines in the cargo pocket might...er...tilt the kilt a little?
