Great feel rough good quality

Love the shirt

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Leonard


I had one hell of a hard time finding a cover garment. I carry a 1911. It is hard to conceal without one. I thought the shirt was a little pricey until I got it.
I ordered a large and it is perfect. I like the quality and all of the features of this shirt so much, I am ordering one in Khaki.
One complaint I do have is the fact that it took just about 2 weeks to get it through USPS.

100% Cotton Short Sleeve Tactical Shirt

 Rated 4.0 stars

From John

from Norfolk Virginia

Primarily I use as part of my work uniform but will use on occasion for civilian wear.

The size, fit, and functionality is great! I'm complemented all the time about this uniform series for it's professional appearance and functionality.

As with most 100% cotton clothes, wash and wear isn't an option with this shirt because ironing is required to maintain professional appearance even if removed from dryer immediately.

Not an issue but do not understand why the buttons are attached upside down. Not hard to button but does take some getting used to.

Not a deal breaker but do not like the vented back. Like the shirts very much so I took all shirts to tailor shop to close the vent for professional appearance concerns.

Regular bellows pockets are too small to hold a large cellphone in a protective case and a 3x5 inch type notepad with cover.

Don't care for the sleeve pen/pencil pocket but would rather prefer to have a pen/pencil organizer inside both bellows pockets and close up the pen/pencil opening on the bellows pocket flaps.

I have no problem recommending to others despite my critiques.

Solid, functional gear.

Fantastic for daily wear. Plenty of storage whether traveling or on the range. Moving to short sleeve as long sleeve elbows wore through too quickly anyway. Wears well under jacket or sport coat. Great space and support for CCW. Button-down collars keep from flapping while riding.

Repeat customer for this product

From Indiana Paramedic

from Rural Indiana

I have been wearing these shirts for about 4 years now. Just added a few more to my arsenal. I have several for duty wear (as a paramedic), and several (Khaki, Black, Tundra, etc) that are for just everyday wear. They are extremely durable and versatile.

My oldest shirts are 4 years old and I still wear them. They are a little faded from many, many washes and years of use, but structurally they are great. No rips, seams are intact, velcro is still strong! Great product!

I'll order more.

5.11 With Craft Int. Logo Looks Classy

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Senior Chief

from Prescott Valley, AZ

I support Craft Int. and what they stand for. This Logo shirt speaks volumes to those who know by experience. I use it for "PR" wear for the Gunsmith industry. It adds that extra class. I salute Chris Kyle for his effort and service. This Shirt reflects this. I have the same shirt for normal "Battle Rattle" use and it's the best. I wish we had this shirt in Vietnam. RivDiv594

Great Shirt For Those Special Times
