I work outdoors all over the county. I pack this in my bag no matter where i'm headed. I've owned mine for 3 years now. No shrinking and only slight fading with at least once a week washing. A little wear on the sleeves at the wrists, but that's nothing for 3 years of wear. I'm ordering a 2nd unit now to have on hand.
Very comfortable, inexpensive and well made. Perfect for chilly dispatch offices or running medical calls. Not as thick or warm as a typical jobshirt...but perfect for around the station. It’s about the same thickness as a typical department store sweatshirt. When the weather dips below 30 degrees, I’ll put a fleece vest underneath. The combination is usually good down to near 0 degrees. Hasn’t shrunk despite regular use and washings. Nor have the colors faded. The chest pocket is deep and insanely versatile. Not all jobshirts in my experience have hand pockets like this one does. The pen holders on the sleeve are a nice touch too. My only complaint is that 5.11 doesn’t offer it in black. My primary service frowns on navy, so I recently had to order another 5.11 model just to accommodate them. The fit is pretty true to size (with just enough room for comfortable layering).
A shirt that takes it to the next level with high durability, comfort, and overall quality. Keeps me warm when I need to be, and cool when required.
It has everything I need, and nothing that I don't.
Simply an amazing piece of work.
