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.
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
