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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
