April 1st :-) (extended)

As April Fools go, I’m not always that good unless I plan something a long time ahead. It’s also the reason it’s probably a good thing I’m not a pilot :-/

So imagine the smile I had when I received an email from 5.11 Tactical on a Sunday of all days… 5.11, if you don’t know, they make tactical but normal looking everyday clothing for the most part – great if you’re a contractor of any type, even better if you’re in law enforcement etc needing to dress more “covertly”. They make those jackets you may see of NCIS with the fold out name flap on the rear. The Irony is there is one guy I know who’d buy this in a heartbeat!

So without further ado, click on the image below and enjoy the video at the bottom of the page 🙂

But Wait there is more!!

Google Tap (is that LL Cool J?)

And this from YouTube… The Entire YouTube DVD Collection 😀

  1. Your right the kilt would and still may be in my wardrobe in a heart beat, as for the phone, i dont think so. just bought a kindle e reader and am happy with that because it is a touch and there is only 2 buttons, the wifi feature is handy if you finish a book when you are sitting on the cludgy and you want another book to read, already done that. but the kilt must be the ultimate in outdoors wear all those pockets would come in handy,


  2. Does the kilt come in other colours, preferably sludge green? If so, I’ve got Pa’s birthday present covered.


  3. Well Hammy and Fenny – guess what…. a follow up email from 5.11:

    Friends in the 5.11 Tactical Community,

    About a month ago our lead designer, Cory Nykoluk, came to me with the idea to have some fun on April 1st with a 5.11 Tactical Duty Kilt. “We’ve had a number of requests for kilts, so why not make one?” Cory had enlisted our creative services director, Matt Frederick and our director of ecommerce, Brian Rogers. I gave the project a green light with the commander’s guidance to make the “TDK” a true 5.11 product supported by a proper launch. Operational security was strict as only about 6 people inside 5.11 knew about this project. In fact, the only reference in meetings and e-mails was to “Project Caber.”
    Our close friend Kyle Lamb, President of Viking Tactics, was briefed and signed on immediately. It turned out he was about to attend a Dropkick Murphys concert. Perfect timing as band member, Scruffy Wallace, is a kiltsman who plays bagpipes and the tin whistle in a VTAC T-shirt. The final piece needed was an athlete/first responder to demonstrate the mobility of the TDK. Matt Frederick called Roman, a veteran duty sheriff and Parkour athlete and we were rolling.

    Last week, when we reviewed the video footage of Roman leaping walls in the TDK – it was clear – we had achieved the goal of making a Kilt true to the 5.11 brand. There was a collective “uh-oh, we only have one kilt in inventory!” On Saturday, March 31st, I called 5.11 Tactical founder, Dan Costa, to tip him off. His response: “Be ready, you’re going to sell some kilts!”

    Indeed, the Tactical Duty Kilt launch was a success, so it seems the April Fool’s Day joke is on us! Due to your positive response, we are pleased to announce that the Tactical Duty Kilt will become available for pre-orders soon on the following web page: http://www.511tactical.com/Tactical-Duty-Kilt.html. We don’t plan to make the TDK an “in-line” product, so this is a limited time, web only offer. If you haven’t already signed up for notifications on when this product becomes available for purchase, please do so now at http://www.511tactical.com/Tactical-Duty-Kilt.html and give us your name and e-mail address in the form located on the right-hand side of the page. We plan on sending out 1 more email to those that have given us their information to confirm size and color and other important ordering details.

    5.11 Tactical Duty Kilts will be available in Black, Khaki, and OD Green (MultiCam will be offered at a slightly higher price) in even waist sizes 30- 40 for a very limited time – don’t miss out. Remember we only have one in inventory today, so we’ll need some time to make them for you!

    Thanks for your friendship, sense of humor and support of 5.11 Tactical.
