Paintballers love playing paintball in kilts because they mean freedom and comfort. They look badass and ladies love them. We're all cut from the same cloth. Type A personalities. Kilters are people who run their own show. And, frankly, we don't give a rip about anyone else's opinion. - "Reaper" David Justin
Why do the Alexander Brothers Woodworking wear kilts when they fire up the sawmill? Simple: The coolness factor. Not only do they look cool, but they are cooler, temperature-wise, thanks to the added ventilation. "There's nothing better than wearing a kilt on a breezy day with sawdust flying. DNKE Sport Utility kilts are our work uniforms. A person may not remember our names, but you they'll definitely remember the twins in the kilts."
All-American Beard Adam Clarke is an electrician by trade, but his passion is competing in obstacle course racing and mud-run style courses in a kilt. When I run obstacle course races I deal with a lot of mud and water and I like that my kilt doesn't hold water and weigh me down. "People love it. I'm usually the center of attention wherever I go. When I'm running races in my kilt, people stop me to take pictures with me all the time."
Rocker Jason Proulx: I think it definitely takes a certain type of person to wear a kilt these days. I started off wearing a kilt as a part of a stage show, but it bled over into my daily life, so it isn't uncommon to see me meandering around the house in my kilt now as well. I think the kilt community is so tight night for the simple fact that we are all very like minded, strong willed, independent, comfortable in our own skin, and more interested in being comfortable than worrying about what other people think.
People call him Shanesaw, the Kilted Yaksman, or Mean Ol' Daddy. We just call him sir. Between wrangling three kids, adventures in the woods, and maintaining a monumental list of hobbies, Shane made some time to tell us how he has freed himself from pants prison.
Strongman Dave Whitley: I make the bold claims that not only am I superhuman, but I'm utterly convinced that everyone has inherent superpowers just waiting to be discovered and developed. I have been doing feats of strength since 2009 and have travelled all over the USA, Australia, Korea, Japan, Italy, Czech, Ireland, England to perform, speak and teach.
