Awesome shirt but is a bit bulky


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


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!


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.

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

I would like this shirt in pure cotton


From Thomas from Germany

from San Antonio

I use it every day
The delivery is fantastic

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.
