I'm on a techincal rescue team with my fire department and this gear was issued to me. I found this gear so comfortable and rugged Purchased the EMS verson of these pants. The knee pads and elbow pads are life savers and a must at times when working. The top does get warm quickly but with all the re enforcement to keep the gear together that will happen. Plenty of storage and a must have for TRT members.
My only complaint....,I ordered dark navy blue and received black.
C'mon, we need the TDU Twill, Shirts and Pants, in TDU Green and other colors...
Great to travel in.
Keep travel documents, passports close at hand.
Good for boating.
Top quality and a very nice price.
Would pay twice for it (please don't raise your prices though)
Very Comfortable shirt, I love the hidden document pockets! I can either put my small backup gun or any number of documents in there! Its hard for a guy my height (6'4") to find button down shirts that the sleeves feel true to size, this one does! Its lightweight too, so not too hot!
I use this as a light jacket during the winter, it suffices down to 10 degrees Fahrenheit for me (depending on the wind) and is most comfortable right down to freezing.
I do not use it as a proper shirt, as I prefer soft dress shirts, but its been a great jacket for me. The pockets are quite convenient as well, though I tend to prefer the document pockets on the inside, these are just fine as well, and quite deep.
I wear it everyday during the winter and early spring and its held up for two years.
Side-note: They hold up to fire pretty well for a shirt. But certainly not fireproof.
This is my first purchase from 5.11 Tactical and I like it.
I beleave that 511 TDUs are probaly the best that there is. It is very functional and comfortable.
I was a bit skeptical the first time I spotted the add for this shirt, I waited too long to order but once I received the shirt, all my doubts were forgotten. I'm kicking my self for waiting so long. IT JUST FEELS RIGHT. I have use this shirt for about 5 days and every pocket is in the right place. The material is strong but has the feeling of dress comfortable more expensive shirt. I don't have to worry about how long this will last. It is all worth it.
It is my new "out to the range attire."
