great shirts

By michael


i have 6 of these shirts. i work oil and gas construction for over 50 years and believe i have finally found the near perfect work shirt. near perfect because the shirt pockets are not quite deep enough to close the flap on a 3 by 5 inch note book i.e foray or other makes. nor are the pockets deep enough to put a large cell phone, iphone 6 plus or equivalent samsung and close the pocket flap. little research by 5.11 might have this corrected.


Bring back the Tall Size

By Craig


There are great shirts, but I need the tall size.


Heavy duty

By Cal


This shirt is constructed like a tank. Love the pockets feature Velcro closures for fast access. Pen holders and all other pockets well thought out and constructed for hard use.


size chart completely wrong

By Jill

from Santa Fe, NM

My work place requires this shirt as part of my uniform. I am a female, but my workplace does not have any women's shirts available as uniform shirts (lucky me!). Anyway, I have a small frame and was worried that a small would be too big, but after consulting the size chart and talking with a customer service rep, I ordered a small (which the size chart indicates has a 36" chest). Well, the size chart lies. The small shirt I received has a 42" chest, which makes this shirt enormous on me. It would be helpful if the information describing the shirt was actually correct. The shirt is embroidered, so probably not returnable, and is completely useless to me.


Plenty big

By B.

from Phoenix, AZ

The cut of 5.11 clothes are very forgiving and plenty big. The utility is great as everyday wear or functional during law enforcement activities.


Great Shirt

By Habu

from Angel Fire, NM

This shirt is well-made, well-designed, and just plain useful. It can be worn as a casual shirt, a work shirt, or even a shirt-jacket. I will be getting more 5.11 products.


Just incredible shirts

By BUCK1911

from Nevada

Just incredible shirts.
5.11 should consider making these in colors other than the standard "Tactical" Military and LE colors.
Also PLEASE continue making the TALL SIZES.
They are the only ones that fit me correctly.


Great -"I would buy this product again

"I would buy this product again and again"


When is Denim coming back????

By Rob

from Bastion Airbase Afghanistan

When are you bringing the Denim shirt back? It was a great casual work shirt. It was great to have all the features of the Tactical shirt without looking "tactical".


Best Shirt I have ever owned!

By Don (large tall)

from Rural Colorado

This is the best shirt I have ever owned, and it is offered in large tall, which many manufacturers don't make. I can reach up without the thing coming un-tucked! Please DON"T GET RID OF THE TALL SIZES! Aside from their designed use, these shirts are great for airline travel.
