Utilikilts Survival

Manufacturer's Description

If you fend off crocodiles for a living, spend most of your time trapped on desert islands or are planning on climbing a few mountains over the summer, the Survival is the Utilikilt you’ve been dreaming of.

Requested by adventurer and tattoo historian Vince Hemingson and worn by the original “Survivor” contestant Richard Hatch (O.K., he was naked most of the time, but he totally wore it on TV), the Survival is the most advanced Utilikilt we offer. Whether you’re climbing a mountain, planning a three-week sojourn into the back woods or just looking for a way to carry 20 bottles of beer, the Survival is the kilt for you.

The survival is basically an Original, a Mocker and a Workman spliced together with a bunch of new features on top. It’s more than a Utilikilt, it’s a way of life.

The Survival features the deep internal slant pockets of the Mocker, plus a pair of detachable side-saddle cargo pockets (each with its own closure flap and belt loops.)

Basically each cargo pocket can be pulled off and used like a belt pack. Wading across a river and don’t want to get your stuff wet? Pull off the cargo pockets, stuff the rest of the Utilikilt inside and toss it across to shore. Pockets stuffed full as you get to the airport? Pull off the pockets, drop them on the x-ray conveyor belt, and stride on through the metal detector. Wear the Survival for awhile and you’ll be shocked at just how useful these removable pockets really are.

Each cargo pocket is equipped with elastic-rimmed gussets, so it’ll expand to fit all your junk, and fold right back to flat after use.

The two rear pockets don’t come off, but they are elastic rimmed and can hold a heroic amount of stuff. Wear your Survival Utilikilt and you might just leave that Hello Kitty backpack at home.

The Survival’s maximum capacity is 20 Bottles of the survival beverage of your choice. That’s six in the front slant pockets, ten in the cargo pockets and four in the back. With the Survival around your waist, you’ll never go thirsty.

Other Features:
* Key clasp on the front of the Survival keeps your massive keychain out of the way and leaves room for more beer in the pockets.
* The Survival introduces our new modesty closure system. Using a simple button and loop setup, the new system keeps your Utilikilt closed in even the toughest wind so you won’t flash your buddies on the trail. Another loop and button pulls the front and back of the Survival together, keeping your ass covered for those long climbs up a windy mountain, short bear-avoiding tree climbs or long drunken nights sleeping one off on some strange couch.
* Circular UK trinity logo (Form Follows Function) and “Utilikilts” printed in block letters below.
