Fantastic item except for a few nit picks

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Filippo


From a comfort standpoint this combat shirt is exceptional. It fits well, and is incredibly breathable.

However, the main things that bother me the most is that 1) it's not made in he US, 2) the material is not flame retardant and will melt to your skin and 3) the flap Velcro on the arm pockets is extremely small (barely able to fit a standard flag patch).

I think those three things aren't real deal breakers for everyday training but it would be if I had to pick a shirt for a real engagement. The not made in the US part I can deal with but not the material choice that isn't flame retardant/self extinguishing. A few things to possibly change? Hopefully.

Other than those things, it's fantastic product for the functional gear addict.

All reviews and Manufacturer's Descriptions are TRUE, But...

I cannot give this item more than 2 stars. Any professional combat shirt or garment meant for professional military or law enforcement use must be flame retardant, self-extinguishing and must not melt to the skin. These shirts do not fulfill those requirements. Further, they are not U S made.

I give this shirt a 5/5 stars on every aspect. Look, comfortability, and usefulness. Fits just right very true to its size chart. Shirt has a long tail so no plumbers crack while out on the range! Guys, this shirt is worth every penny. It's just too bad it's not made in the good Ol' US of A...

I use the shirt for hunting under a rig. Keeps me comfortable. It has a great cut with nice features like the cloth cover sewn in to cover the zipper. I have this type of shirt in other brands and this one is my favourite.

Great combat shirt

When I put the shirt on and take it off I here a tear, it might be because I take it off a little to fast but that shouldn't be the case. You should be able to throw it on real quick in a situation when needed. But when it's on it feels great, breaths well, and I feel like might loadout is complete. Other than the fact that it seems easy to tear at the seems when putting on it does feel like a great piece of equipment. It might just need a little breaking in. Overall I would recommend this combat shirt I don't regret the purchase pros beat the one con that there is. Great job 5.11!!!

Practical,wearable and comfortable

Use under my armor load vest. Plenty of storage on arms. Comfortable after first wash to soften up arms. Way more versatile than BDU shirt under body armor. Get one, you'll like it.

Worth the cost

Cant find any cons to this product. The chest area fits snug and wicks away moisture as needed. The material feels a little thick and keeps me a little warm in Florida weather but still does its job. The arms bothered me when I first put them on since they were so large, but honestly I love it now. Arms are over sides around the bicep area to give a great freedom of movement in the arms, you dont even notice you have sleeves on. Quality as usual is up to 5.11 standards and will take whatever punishment you want to subject to it. Cost is a little high but its better to pay for a top quality product once than have to replace other lesser brands on a frequent basis. Get this product, you wont be disappointed.

Excellent equipment!!!!

I use these items daily and they are comfortable and look professional. I have the shirts, BDU's and boots. The only thing is the 'shirt' part that is not camo'd will not last as long as the full camo areas.. It is not as heavy or rugged in material.

However that is ok because it makes it more comfortable and cooler to where.. Just want you to be aware of that though..

Great Shirt

I found this great to wear underneath my kit. It had all the pockets you could ask for, plus all the Velcro already stitched on. Great to wear during days with large temperature swings( hot to cold) I wore this shirt almost everyday during my deployment . Thanks Brendan. I love this stuff.
