Just Okay


From Lee


Although I wear them everyday, they held my P99 well the first time I wore them. After the first wash, not so good. As long as I don't bend over, the weapon stays comfortably in place. When I bend down, I have to be mindful to prevent it from falling out.

Holster Shirt


From Jeff Texas Vet


I have 2 of the white and 2 of the black V-neck and wear them on a daily basis, winter, summer, spring and fall as I always have my EDC. Love these shirts and have been thinking of getting the sleeveless but would like it better if offered in the V-Neck as that works best with my outer shirts and other clothing I wear. So far this option is not available but perhaps with enough demand it may become a reality. I sure hope so.
All in all these are the best shirts on the market in my opinion with both left and right pockets. Some say the velcro is inadequate but I have had no problems with that. I also wear a light cotton under shirt beneath the holster shirt and between the two shirts I get good wicking of perspiration. Having multiple shirts allows me to wear a freshly laundered one each day and that also will make them last a lot longer. Get more than one shirt....after all you don't wear the same pair of socks day after day without changing them out....do you???
My compliments to 511 Tactical for this product. Start making the V-neck sleeveless in black and you will make me very happy and remember the customer is always right.

Comfortable shirt, big pockets and holds my heavy 1911.


From Ricardo


So I recently bought the black v-neck in medium. It came brand new with a hole in the back, right shoulder. I contacted 5.11 via email and received no response. I love the shirt and sewed the hole in shirt myself. I've already recommended it to friends and recommended ordering the size you always wear in shirts, it fits great and snug. Besides that it wicks sweat pretty good and keeps you cool. I can fit 4-1911 mags side by side in one pocket and my pistol in the other with no problem. - nothing follows, prior Blue8Golf out.

Works as Advertised


From SW31

from Colorado Springs, CO

I bought item at a local store this after several people recommended it to me. I'm 6 feet tall, but I only weigh 160lbs so most of my 5.11 gear is size medium or large. The size chart for the holster shirt said I was a small so that's what I bought, and it was wrong. The small was very tight across my chest and the mesh pockets kept riding up into my armpits (even with a loaded handgun inside). I ended up exchanging the shirt for a medium, which fit much more comfortably.
The pockets on this shirt are huge. I can easily fit my full size XD-M 40 cal with room to spare. Unfortunatly my XDS 45 tends to get lost in there.
Some people have said the this kind of holster doesn't work with a T-shirt. I've done some practice live fire draws and found that if after much practice my holster shirt draw was only .16 seconds slower than my in waistband draw. So just keep that in mind when considering this product.
Additionally this makes a great workout shirt as it is made out of a moisture wicking material and you can use the pockets to hold your ipod, keys, or other things if your workout pants don't have pockets.

Works as advertised

Worked as advertised, comfortable to wear and concealment is great.

"Everything I had hope for in a t-shirt"


From COO Bob

from SCS, MI

Excellent concealment for a business professional. Easily accommodates either model of the Glock (19 or 26) 9MM.



From Stick

from Missouri

This is an awesome carry shirt. It really clings to me and makes me feel real fat as I am not a small guy, however it works as advertised. Thanks for the great product.

perfect fit


From scubanstr

from denton, tx

with my build I kept looking for a holster that I could use to conceal my handgun. these holster t-shirt are the perfect concealment. And just as the product description says useful for workouts and runs around the neighborhood to hold my iPhone. I like the fit under my suit as well. It fits just like my workout compression shirts.

I love it!!


From jr

from Edmore MI

I bought 2 of these shirts and wish I would have ordered more at the time I wear them every day they are so comfortable even for a big guy im 6 ft tall 275 lbs The only thing I dont like about it is think the sleeves are to long they do make a sleeve less one but not in the v-neck

Great shirt !


From XitLeft

from San Joaquin County, Ca

I like the fit (ordered one size smaller than normal; I like it that way. It holds my glock in place well.
