I'm 6.2" 190lbs and the Large fit perfectly. Purchased this shirt from a local cop-shop. Will be purchasing more of this.. great product.


Excellent Shirt!!

By Robert


I wear the shirts everyday for 12 hours plus. No snags, no wrinkles, and very comfortable.


This is one great shirt

By Jonathan


This seriously is one great shirt. Haven't seen a wrinkle yet, and I accidentally left it on the floor overnight under a pile of other clothes and boxes. The comfort is also great and there is no doubt that one looks professional wearing this. I recommend the Dark Navy but it really comes down to personal preference.


Great Shirt

By Stephan


Shirt is true to size, extremely comfortable. I've only had the shirt for one wear so far, but construction seems excellent. I do not force any issues and will be ordering more in various colors.


Awesome shirts

By Joe R

from South Jersey

Very comfortable and light weight. Perfect shirt for my job, took embroidery very well both sides of the chest. Collars don't roll up and lay flat. Pen pocket is handy and the mic clips are convenient if you need them.


Good Shirt!

By Luke

from Iowa

I like wearing this shirt because it looks professional but its rugged enough to wear on tough jobs and to wear all day (16+ hours)have not owned very long so can not comment about how long they last but it seems like solid shirt!


So many compliments

By Nicky

I wear these shirts a lot and I am constantly getting compliments about the pen holders.

Finally found what I always wanted!

By satisfied customer

from El Paso, Texas

I searched for a long time to find this type of shirt!! I watched the video about this shirt and decided to give it a try. Thank you 5.11 for making such a great product. I'm 5'9", and a little under 150lbs, and the small is perfect, and not too tight anywhere, just incase you are muscular. The shirt is also perfect length too. I also ordered the long sleeve version just to try, and it feels excellent as well, if not more comfortable because your arms are shielded for the sun or cold! I'm sold on these shirts and will be using these for work from now on.
