The shirt in the shoulders sits very well, and the bottom is very wide. It is made for fat people with small shoulders. Good for those who have a huge stomach. I really did not like it, I regretted that I bought this model.
I bought the Arctic. It is definitely roomy. Not as long as I had hoped. 5.11 should offer tall selections for us with longer torsos. All in all, nice looking shirt and appears to be quality construction.
Good, light, quality shirt. However, I would order one size smaller than you normally wear. Even with extra room to minimize CCW printing, this shirt has too much extra in the midsection. I’m 6ft, 195 lbs, and a 36” waist. I’m no lean/mean gym rat, but I’m not out of shape either and the size Large shirt is huge through the midsection. Fits very well through the chest, neck, and arms. I’ve ordered a Medium to see if it fits better. At $19....this is a steal.
It looks and fits great – but the nylon/poly fabric: not at all comfortable. On cool days it’s cold, on warm days it’s sweat-inducing, unlike a cotton shirt. I can’t recommend this shirt. Mine has been donated to a thrift store.
This shirts sizing is just terrible. I am an across the board XL and in this I float or in the L it doesn’t fit my shoulders. I bought three and wish I hadn’t. Hopefully they fix this next year. Overall though the materials are great and so is the look.
Perfect shirt while navigating overseas with security checkpoints. Stuff your passport in one pocket and travel documents in the other. This way you aren't digging in your pants all the time. They run a little large. Happy Trails.
THese shirts are huge and baggy; I own about (6) 5.11 shirts in various styles, s/s and l/s, mostly for IWB coverage. They are all size "Large" but this shirt in Large is huge, way too wide and too long, fits like a "Big and Tall" shirt. Order a size smaller in this shirt style...and yes the material is more akin to a wicking material, but smooth, non-catching. Like the shirt, just way too oversized; unlike their others which are sized great for CCW.
The fit on this shirt ,for me is perfect! CCW barely visible, the best button up I've ever worn!
During overseas tours 7 years ago, I purchased several of the tactical camp type shirt, size L. They are well made, long lasting and extremely functional. I recently purchased 5 Large replacement shirts. I assumed that the shirts would be comparable in quality and size. None of the shirts fit me, they were extremely large in length and rear width. I compared measurements with my original shirts. The new shirt length is 3 inches longer. The new shirt rear width is 4 inches longer. New shirts were lighter than the original which were 65% rayon and 35% poly with 100% poly lining and the combo of buttons and snaps were replaced with all snaps. In retrospect, the explanation from 5.11 to the buyer of this shirt as sized for covert cover is misleading. I do not mind paying top price for any 5.11 product but I am disappointed in the sizing and quality of these new model shirts. I urge 5.11 to incorporate the quality and sizing of the old model into any new model.
FYI, the taclite pro trousers are the best...pls do not try to improve them!
Great shirt for travel and everyday. Love the look. Extremely comfortable.
