Mocker Switchback Review

Utilikilts redesigned their kilts. The new ones are called "Switchback", after their adjustable rear end, with stretch and velcro. I just got one, the Mocker Switchback, in Basil Twill. I posted the following review:

Got my first Mocker Switchback two days ago (Basil Twill). Love it!

I got my first Utilikilt in 2009, the old standard (now called "Spartan"). Bought one more every spring since then, except 2016, all Mockers except the first one and a black Workman. After kilt number three, I wore them in the warm months. After kilt number five, I found that cheap sweat pants kept me warm enough in the winter, and I ditched all the pants except those sweat pants, and some long johns to wear under them on the really cold days. This one makes kilt number eight.

One big problem with the old Mockers was that the pockets grew holes. I've taken two of them to the local seamstress for pocket repair. I predict that the new model will have no such problem. The pockets are made out of the same tough material as the rest of the kilt, and are sewed in place, instead of allowed to flap around inside.

I love that it actually SAYS "Mockers" on the back of the new kilt.

I miss the back pocket. Store my knife there. It fits on the back of a front pocket, but I don't like that as much.

I haven't yet tried the buttons that hold the front together.

Bottom line: You guys hit it out of the park with the new design. Bravo!
