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!


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

from Washington

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


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.

I would like this shirt in pure cotton


From Thomas from Germany

from San Antonio

I use it every day
The delivery is fantastic

Taclite Pro Short Sleeve Shirt is good


From Dr Vic

from St Louis MO

I am a paraplegic and need a lot of shirt pockets. I especially like the hidden velcro closure chedt pockets. This shirt is great for my needs

Great double pockets and style


From construction worker

from Hot Springs, AR

Finding a shirt with double pockets is hard to find and I ordered one shirt to try and my husband loved it so much we ordered 5 more. We are very satisfied with the product.

Best Shirt I've Ever Owned


From Bill the Photograper

from Cary, North Carolina

They are light, durable, breathable and work well for my outdoor use.

Love the shirt


From gun_mech

from California High Desert

Shirts run a little large, maybe for a ballistic vest but very comfy. would highly recommend

5.11 gear the BEST!!


From Big Dawg

from Pace, Fl

More than I expected!!! 5.11 gear is the BEST!!!
Why not carry the short sleeve shirts in the exact same color as the pants? I think the pants are 192 Tundra and the short sleeve shirts are more of an olive green.
