Simply amazing


From The Transitcop

from New York City

After 35 years in EMS, the last 25 in Law Enforcement I swear 5.11 makes the best uniform available today.
I wear EVERYTHING 5.11, pants, shirts, outerwear and recently footwear. For years I would buy name brands of lesser quality, and comfort. The colors last as does the workmanship.
Try 5.11 and I know you'll like them too.

Decent uniform shirt


From Thirdbase10

from South Carolina

My department recently switched to the Taclite uniforms. They are a major improvement over the polyester uniforms that we used to wear. The biggest complaint about the shirt is how much lint that is attracted to the fabric and how easily they wrinkle. The uniforms should have come with a standard issue lint roller. I have to roll my shirt multiple times before and throughout my shift to get lint and dust off. Overall though it is a great uniform that I would recommend to others.

Awesome Shirt


From King Geek

from Detroit

I can transmute any element into gold with the aura of awesomeness this shirt exudes. Other shirts worship this shirt in the hanger of elemental superiority.

Wish it came in white


From Houston Medic

from Houston, Texas

It would be nice to have a light weight fabric option in other colors for the heat and HUMIDITY

Great looking comfy shirt


From JJ

from Mattoon,il

I decided to try this shirt because I like the look, 1/2 way between class A and bdu. It is very light weight and probably the most comfy shirt I have worn in the past 17 years. I highly recommend it and will be ordering a long sleeve version for the winter.
