I got this job shirt as a gift. It is GREAT! I wore it for the first time in heavy snow not too long ago. I was covered in snow pretty well. The job shirt was able to keep me warm and dry. Any water that gets on the job shirt beads up and runs off. Great design! So far I have washed the job shirt once, and it is still retaining its water repellent capabilities. I plan on buying another one sometime.
It better be cold outside because this thing keeps you warm. Favorite when the temps drop. Professional, Tactical, and Cozy like a fuzzy blanket! Highly recommend!
What a great job shirt! The problem with many other job shirts out there on the market is that they are a bit too roomly at the waist-belly area and give a bulky look with the built-in side pockets. Your 5.11 Job Shirts in which I ordered the "water repellent" job shirt has the right fit. The area at the waist-belly has much lesser room inspite of the side pockets.
So, your job shirt gives me a well fitted professional look hands down! When I want a job shirt it will be 5.11!
True to its name this job shirt has stayed water repellent for almost a year, but the color started to fade significantly after a few shifts and only two washes. Wish the dye was more resilient.
