Very nice but ... 4 stars

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Rotkod


Great shirt. Like it very much but...

The marksmanship looks very reliable. The mesh on the back is great. Love the pockets. Love the locker loop on inner collar. Love the Khaki colour.

The "Gusseted underarms for mobility" not working for me that way. The cut of the shirt slightly restricts me to the armpit area (it may because I have chest 114 cm, also I'm 175 cm high, 85 kg, wearing US M size). The length of the shirt - it is too long for me even for CCW, which was my idea.

1) Regarding the underarm area... If use more breathable fabric (but please do not use 100% polyester) or the same Ripstop fabric (from which the shirt was made) with some small vent holes it will be great for hot climates and/or operators which sweats easier.
2) In Europe we don't have opportunity to chose the length of the shirts. Maybe if you can offer length: #long, #regular (which I believe I own), and #short, it will be more than great! (That's why I vote 4 stars)

Thumb up, you're doing great. Hope 2018 you will improve the almost the perfect 5.11 TacLite Pro Shirt.

Perfect for CCW inside the waistband tucked carry

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Royce


I have seen several comments regarding the shirt body being too large. It is perfect if you are a CCW using an inside the waistband holster that you can tuck your shirt tail in. I have been wearing these for several years and they are the most comfortable cloths that I have ever had. I wish that they made them in the Storm color though. I live in Texas where it is hot and need to tuck in my shirt and not wear an outer garment.

Awesome shirt but is a bit bulky

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Even


I have bought this shirt in medium size. I love to have a shirt that is breathable and light material to wear in hot environments. However, the shirt seems a bit bulky in size. The sleeves are slightly too long and the shirt runs slightly too big in general. I would recommend buying a size smaller for what you normally wear if you want a better fit.

Love The Pockets

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Michael


I have been looking for shirts with helpfull pockets and the 5.11 Taclite Pro Shirts delivered. I bought a few to wear and see how it feels. These shirts feel they are built to last. The concealed pockets are extra! I went to the nearest 5.11 store to see what else 5.11 offers. I eventually bought the Stryke shirt because they were not as baggy as the Taclite and I like the overall appearance. Taclite wil be use for my grunt work. Stryke shirts for impressive appearance. I too wish 5.11 offer more colors. Thank you 5.11.

Love these shirts!

From Dan


Love these shirts! LOVE 'em! Good looking, easy care, usefully placed pockets, durable, stain resistant, and comfortable. I wear them every day to work in an office setting and on personal time. I only have one complaint, rather suggestion: Would you please, PLEASE, offer this in RED? I'd wear it every Friday and Remember Everyone Deployed! Maybe even a U.S. flag over the heart?? Sign me up for one (likely more, including gifts) as soon as they go into production. Just ship it and bill me.

Good Shirt

From Green Deplorable


A top quality, well-fitting shirt. I'd like to see a few more colors available like coyote, tundra, brown etc.

From Jeff


I love these shirts, and have worn them almost daily for years. My only wish is that there would be a version with a squared off bottom. No shorter, but a square bottom. Oh, and maybe some more color choices.
Thank you.

Most excellent shirt!

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Rick


I love this shirt! It is cool to wear in hot weather and the double pockets and hidden velcro vest pockets are very handy. I do surveying and layout work and the pockets let me carry a calculator and folded blueprints in an easy-to-get-to place. And the shirt looks good, too!

Excellent product

From Greg

I've been wearing this 5-11 style shirt on the job for a few years. It has not shrunk an inch nor faded at all. I love the velcro hidden document pockets. I carry my cell phone in one and my wallet in the other.

There is plenty of room in those 2 pockets alone, I only use the breast pockets for my pens and handcuff key. I wear black on duty, but I'm going to buy the khaki for off duty wear. These shirts will probably last many years.

Not true to size

 Rated 1.0 stars

From Tripeptidase

from Australia

This shirt is not true to size. While the neck collar size is accurate the chest and sleeve sizing seems to be made to accommodate body armour and does is too bulky for civilian use.
