We can see you now, out there on the job site, headbanging to Slayer, your mullet hanging down to your shoulders, a big honking drill in one hand, a cold beer in the other and all your pants-wearing co-workers sweating their asses off and wondering how you got so damn cool.
The Workman was designed with the hard working man in mind. It comes in 12 oz. 100% cotton Duck cloth that feels just about tough enough to stop a nail gun. It features two exterior rear pockets and has two multi-chamber saddle pockets with room for all the nails, screws, tape measures, cell phones, wallets and beer bottles you could want.
The Workman’s also features “The Grip” retractable side hammer loop. This sturdy and adjustable loop can hold everything from a ballpein hammer to a DeWalt cordless drill no problem, and will keep even the biggest tool tight and secure all through your working day.
The Workman’s is sort of the mutant child of a Utilikilt and hardcore toolbelt.
The Workman’s is a tough Utilikilt for tough folks with tough jobs. If you wear it to a desk job, everyone will know you’re overqualified.
I have purchased 4 kilts from these guys over the years. Even bought a leather one. I have one in particular that I have wore thru 15 Goruck Challenges, 3 tough mudders and several other random mud runs such as Spartan and Savage. I has taken literally hundreds of hours of straight up abuse. It`s a little faded these days and has some barbed wire scars but still wears like the day i bought it. (it fits a bit tighter these days). I also own a few off brand kilts, purchased cause i needed a kilt for a certain event or certain color and it wasnt going to be worn much so I bought something cheaper. And it shows. That $70 or $50 kilts is not that same thing you get from utilikilt. not even close . Size your ass the way they say to and youll be golden. My absolute favorite kilt is my black leather Utilikilt. It`s like a leather biker jacket but for your bottom half. Its been thru several Dropkick Murphy pits and was still worthy to wear for a wedding in Ireland. I wish i could get away with wearing a kilt every day, Id buy more from these guys.
Bought one last black Friday when they had a special discount on them! I had no issues using the website to place my order and use the discount, and I love that PayPal means my purchase is secure and seamless.
I did have a question about something, though, so I gave them a call to confirm. The person who answered my call was awesome, knew exactly what I needed and offered plentiful information!
Would do business again. One of my kilts is over two years old and worn almost daily, still in great shape. My workman's is still a great looking kilt that I actually tend to wear to formal occasions!
The kilts are great. I own one and find quality really great. I have been trying to order one for a good friend's birthday. I live in Arizona so my only option is to buy online.
Of course, I first went to Amazon because their customer shopping experience is so easy. Sadly, I can't buy actual "Utilikilts" on Amazon. So, I tried ordering at Utilikilts online. Trying to figure out what size is really confusing and it's not clear to me as if returns are an option if I make a mistake. The delivery time takes way, way longer than should be acceptable in 2018. Are these custom made? If so, why? And Utilikilts are WAY more expensive than every other alternative.
In the end, I am okay with the cumbersome ordering, the confusing sizing instructions, and the fact that it is 4x more expensive than every other competing product. I'm even okay with the long and indeterminate delivery times, which means I'll miss the actual birthday. The original Utilikilts are that well made.
If only I could have figured out how to give Utilikilts my money.
The on-line shopping experience would not even rank as a #1, because I simply cannot complete my order. Really horrible experience. I have to use PayPal, for some reason. I tried repeatedly to enter my credit card number. I signed up as a member, which is not something I want to do just to buy something. My payment would not go through. Every effort failed.
It seems to me as though Utilikilt either needs to offer a workable online shopping experience or not.
If every there was an example as to why Amazon.com is taking over the world, this is it. At least I can give them my money.
Bear with me please...Flat out, hands down, the BEST utility kilt you can get... and I have several. I only wear Utilikilts now. FIRST and foremost, the closure method. I LOVE the simplicity of the 6 button apron. Easy on & easy off. No buckles or straps on the side to jack with like on most other "utility kilts"...I like to call it "easy on, easy off". ( I can see / understand having them on a tartan kilt for traditional purposes but we're not talking about a tartan kilt now, are we...?) SECOND, the fit. How many of us have bought kilts that claim to be "adjustable" in size with several extra sets of buttons along the waist ? Well, their claim is all fine and dandy if you stay within a 1/2 size because any more and you're SOL. You may be able to adjust your waist size up or down with them but a lot of ppl don't take into consideration the apron buttons. Aye, let out or tighten up a size or two on those other kilts and try to button your apron up.. The button don't align and it looks like Schmitt because the apron button are off kilter.. With Utilikilt and their switchback design your kilt look awesome no matter how much you let in or out because the alignment of the snaps on the apron stays the same. You simply adjust the lacing / velcro in the back for a perfect look and fit. THIRD, 12 Oz of ducky toughness. I work in my shop building longbows, leather working, homebrewing and woodworking. For a kilt, I need a something sturdy... not something flimsy and weak that'll rip if it catches on a snag. The Duck cloth that Utilikilts uses has held up to everything I've thrown at it ... in my shop, out playing discgolf or running the town. Not to mention the fact that these are the only kilts I don't need to starch & iron. Aye, I'm an old ironworker.. I'm used to starching my blues & carhartts. Throw your Utilikilt in the wash, hang it to dry and snap the pleats and you're set. I could go on and on but the bottom line is … Aye , you'll pay a little more for a Utilikilt than those other poser kilts … But after you get it, wear it and put it to the test , you'll know where exactly where those extra $ went. Incidentally, I've just been informed to add that as much as I like the "easy on, easy off" of my Utilikilt, my gf likes it more ;) Cheers
