I have had my gray 5.11 job shirt for about a month now. So far I am not happy with it. With this shirt being my first job shirt from 5.11 I can say that it does not hold up like other job shirts that I have purchased in the past from other companies. After reading reviews on this site I purchased gray to avoid the fading problem. With that said after a few washes and about a month of on the job wear I have noticed small fuzz balls throughout the shirt, similar to what you would find on a cheap walmart sweat shirt. The detail is very nice, but I was expecting more from 5.11. If I had not gotten the job shirt customized for work I would return it. I will not buy again.
Awesome job shirt fits great shipping excellent will by more material is great for law enforcement!!!
Bought this as a gift for my wife to wear when she instructs Taser classes. Had the Taser logo embroidered on it, and it looks sharp. The job shirt looks casual as well as professional. Another outstanding product from 5.11.
I'm the Quartermaster at my department, and I'm getting complaints of these running small on guys. We have one guy that ordered an XL tall. The tag had tall hand written on it, and was exactly the same size as the XL. Looking for other job shirt brands now.
I bought this as an alternative to the traditional uniform sweater. My department has been moving toward more of a tactical look in uniforms. This shirt compliments the 5.11 BDU pants, it looks sharp, its comfortable, and keeps me warm. Couldn't ask for more.
We received these as part of the agency uniform. The customization is nicely done with reflective writing on the back and embroidery on the front.
These shirts looked beautiful about 6-7 months ago when they were issued to all of us. And although they evade wrinkling and collar problems ... these fade a lot. Everyone seems to have a different hue of navy blue. As for me, I wash in cold and dry on low (inside out) and I am still fading.
I am seeing different shades from navy, to purple hues ... they don't look as good on the corps members as they initially did.
I wish they made it in a long. I am tall and the arms are almost too short for what I want
I am usng it on missions and also on the regular days, at night it save you from extream cold. However the only draw back is that I ordered large because ofmy wide shoulders, but I neve thought that from the waist it will be that loose. I guess that the elastic should hve been a little tighter. Overall its a good purchase.
This shirt is very professional looking when embroidery and Department patches are applied. The shirt is warm, sturdy and comfortable...
"up to a point".
When zipped up, the top of the zipper jabs under the chin and/or into the neck. Try unzipping slightly and the zipper turns to stick one in the cheek because the lapel is not designed to be turned down. Perhaps a re-design employing either a shorter zipper, or even a pouch for the zipper top would make this an even nicer, more wearer-friendly top layer.
Great job shirt. I bought this because the uniform jackets at my ambulance company are lack-luster. Very professional looking, especially comparitivly to what I would be wearing.
