Purpose Built

The 5.11® Rapid Assault Shirt was engineered with direct input from military and law enforcement personnel as an ideal base layer for tactical use in any operational setting. Featuring a unique multi-fabric construction, the Rapid Assault Shirt consists of a poly/cotton/spandex knit body section that offers an agile and flexible base with moisture wicking and quick drying properties, along with ultra-durable poly/cotton ripstop sleeve sections that can withstand the harshest environments.

Large shoulder pockets provide quick and convenient storage, mesh panels offer enhanced breathability, and the integrated woven collar can be worn up or down. When you need unhindered maneuverability and hard charging performance, the Rapid Assault Shirt is the only choice.

Nothing but positive feedback

By Private Security Company Owner


We use these shirts for certain details and get nothing but complements on these shirt. My biggest fear was that people would see them as "too aggressive" but its actually the total opposite.


Very nice shirt.

By Retired EMT

from San Jose, Ca.

I field tested this shirt with the Stryke pants. What a nice shirt and so much more comfortable when wearing the external vest. Just a word about size. It is form fitting. I generally wear a medium size shirt but in this I took a large.

Great item on the range

By Cooks71

I used it on training on the range and it's great.
When things comes to dynamic exercises you'll appreciate the breathability of the shirt.
Easy to clean.


very comfortable

By Joe

I wear these shirts everyday for work.(full time SWAT)

My biggest complaint is lack of pocket usability.

Yes, the pockets are there on the sleeves, but police patches tend to be much bigger than most military patches,therefore causing the patch to completely cover the pocket openings, rendering them useless.

A side zipper or velcro slash opening on the pockets would be ideal.


exactly what i was looking for

Awesome, Tough, Fits Great!

By Mosa

from Chicago

These shirts are amazing and the cost is perfect. Actually a really great deal considering how well these are made and fit. They take a beating and I can't be happier with the quality and use I'm getting out of it. I called customer service and they suggested that I leave a comment here since I have a suggestion for you. It would be awesome to see these in a dark Grey color. The other colors / multicam that you have are great but I know myself and a lot of other guys have a need for grey and I would rather buy from you than a different company. Thanks for the awesomeness and keep doing what your doing.


Great Tactical shirt

By emartch

from Washingto DC Metro Area

I use it almost every day, I love the way it feels. The only thing I think this product is lacking of is the fact that it does not have pen pockets on the sleeve. Other than that this was a great purchase. I'm very happy and pleased with it.


Assault shirt

By Joebill

from Helmand, Afghanistan

I would buy this top if your going to Hot or warm weather climates. Breathes good when wearing kit and washes well without fraying. The chest and back are made of a light weight material thats breaths really well. and sleeves are pretty rugged as well. Currently wearing the Rapid Assault Shirt in afghanistan during the summer months for operations.




from Auburn, AL

The sleeves and length are great just wish the rest of the shirt wasn't so skin tight.
