Bought 1700 shirt at same time as the 5.11. 1700 was shorter and less full in body. The 5.11 was perfect size for concealed carry; and very comfortable here in Florida. Getting ready to buy another.

First of all, I am glad to have a CC shirt in a burnt orange color. I'm a UT Austin Longhorn graduate, so burnt orange clothing is necessary. I like this shirt, though I miss having a front pocket for holding my phone. Also this model doesn't have the tearaway velcro snaps on the hips that the newer shirts have. Still, I got it on sale so I am happy.

Material feels like swim trunks

The Covert Shirt Select is a polyester/modal blend that is very thin and lightweight. It has one external button-less pocket, and mesh internal pockets on either side that seal with Velcro. All buttons are snap buttons, and it has Velcro breakaway sides. It doesn't have a liner in the back and sides like some of the other covert shirts, so weapon printing could be an issue. The collar is flimsy and tends to fold up instead of laying well. The biggest drawback is that this shirt is marked as dry-clean only, which wasn't marked in the description of the product and was quite a shock. I never expected 5.11 to make anything that I needed to pay someone else to clean.

The Covert Shirt Performance is a nylon/polyester blend that's even more lightweight than the select shirt. It has mesh pockets on either side, but instead of internal access that seals with Velcro, it has hidden outside pockets with zippers. All buttons are snaps, and the sides of this shirt do not breakaway. The fabric also feels like swim trunks and has that same "whish whish" sound, which really bothers me.

The Covert Shirt Classic is the closest to the older version, but it still has many changes. It's 100% cotton, which makes it the best feeling and thickest shirt of the three. There's a single buttonless external pocket on the chest, and two mesh internal pockets on either side with Velcro closures. All the buttons are snap closures that are designed to look like real buttons, and the sides are breakaway. There is also no liner in the back, but this is less of an issue with this shirt because the single layer of material is thicker. This shirt also feels the roomiest of the bunch, to the point where I could have probably went a size smaller. This is easily my favorite of the three shirts discussed, but I still like the older version of the covert shirt better.

I am 6ft 1in, weigh about 310lbs the 2xl shirts fit great, and look great. Quality shirts that function and perform well. I have a ccw where i live, Oklahoma, and it gets pretty hot here, these shirts are great for hot weather. My only con is the Price it tends to be on the high side for a shirt. But the quality for what you get makes up for it i suppose.

Chest Size

  • Feels too big

I have used this product for

  • Less than a month

Sleeve Length

  • Feels too long

I'm 5'7", 165-170 lbs with an athletic wrestlers build. I normally wear an athletic cut dress shirt (16" neck, 32-33" sleeve length with 32-33" waist trousers (with inside waist band G30) and 31-32 inseam. The Medium Concealed carry short sleeve button up shirts are way too wide and way too long. I understand that the shirts are baggy/loose to enhance concealment but the mediums are just too big and look sloppy and unprofessional. I wish they made a small. If you have a similar issue call or write the sales reps and see if we can get them to target the smaller statured physique. The shirts are made/designed well but just don't fit the smaller guys.
