Long Sleeve Ripstop TDU Shirt

 Rated 4.0 stars

From John

from Norfolk, VA

I ordered these online via the AAFES/5.11 portal, so unless you can verify those purchases with this account this won't show up as a Verified Buyer.

I use them as a uniform option but will use them as needed with civilian clothes.

Things that are great:

- They seem to be made out of titanium because they are incredibly durable.

- Have no problem rolling the sleeves using the Marine method or modified Army method.

Things that aren't so great:

- I've mentioned this before in other product reviews, but the buttons are upside down and will explain why they easily come off. The buttons you use are not the tried and true BDU buttons but epaulette and throat closure buttons used on government issue raincoats, jackets, and Navy Coverall Uniform. If properly attached, right side up, the button is designed with a ridge to put the thread attaching the button to the shirt below the surface of the button and giving it protection from abrasion. The BDU buttons have a recess in the middle and are the same on both sides so you can't attach those upside down. Suggestion would be to use BDU buttons or attach these buttons right side up. Due to personal preference and a more professional appearance I replaced all buttons with BDU buttons.

- The regular pockets are not deep enough to hold zipper notebook without the flap not closing nor do they expand enough. Suggestion would be to make them deeper and put more bellows in the side so they'll be beefier.

Other than that, I strongly recommend these shirts to anyone who needs durable uniforms.

Buttons fall off after first washing...

Are you kidding me? I purchased Tac Lite shirts and the buttons are either loose or falling off literally before I wear it! Didn't even make it through one washing! Found button in bottom of washer. Guess I will be sewing them to either replace or reinforce. I called Customer Service and they said this was the first time anyone had complained about this.

Great for concealed carry.

From Randy

from Denver, CO

I found the hidden document compartments are sturdy enough to use for concealed carry; my Glock 23 fits inside very well, and does not show that I am carrying anything. I attribute this to the toughness of the fabric, and the size and means of buttoning the shirt. Excellent product.

For patrol and transport this item has lots of storage. Turns broken glass and bites well, liquids and blood do not absorb vary fast.

tactical pants and shirts. excellent

Excellent service, absolutely excellent. Very professional, personal, and just exceptional. Well done. I've bought and used 5.11 gear previously and love it.

Best Uniform Shirt Yet

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Jerry

from Dallas, TX

As a Remote Paramedic I need uniforms I can count on that will last. I've used these shirts shirts for over a year. I just recently purchased 2 news ones due to decreasing in size. My old ones look just like new.

great for police officers works.

Outstanding shirt!

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Doc

from Stafford VA

Though I said too big in the chest, only slightly as I need a large for length but have a medium for chest size. Used for training, going into the woods, or just wearing around. I would tell anyone looking for a good TDU that this is what you want.

Great Ideas with this shirt

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Austin

from Salem, MA

I wear this to work at a warehouse, very durable, love the sewing of the cuffs to the elbow, its genius the way its reinforced, also great pockets and pleats on the shoulders which is the norm with army and marine combat uniforms. Full range of motion, I am so pleased with this product.

The perfect shirt!!

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Jeff

from Kentwood, MI

I use this shirt for work. I really like the bi-swing shoulders. I move my arms around alot and it doesn't pull around my neck or pull my shirt up. The only bad thing is the last person I talked to at 511 told me they are discontinueing the tall size, so I thought I had the perfect company to deal with and now I have to find somewhere else to shop.
