5.11 Tactical Ripstop TDU Long Sleeve Shirt

5.11 Tactical Ripstop TDU Long Sleeve Shirt

The 5.11 Tactical Ripstop poly cotton TDU shirt is a tough no-nonsense shirt built for hard wear combined with comfort, functionality and freedom of movement. OK, they are based on US military shirts, but are so much more.

The shirts are made of tough, crisp but comfortable and quiet 6.14oz, Teflon coated (for stain resistance), ripstop poly cotton (65% / 35%) and are cut with a bi-swing shoulder for ease of movement, have a smart stand-and-fall collar, a double yoke, a covered front button stand, double thickness elbows (and come with removable elbow pads), twin position button cuffs, a buttoned cuff placket and a straight hem so you can wear the shirt as a light jacket in warm weather.

On the lower left sleeve there are twin pen slots (very convenient) while on the chest you have twin square-cut half bellowed pockets with square cut, Velcro-closed cover flaps (the left one slotted for a pen or similar).

Behind these pockets are the 5.11 patented hidden document pockets which have vertical, Velcro tab closed openings and cover the whole chest area. These pockets swallow much more than documents, comfortably and discreetly!

Coming in sizes XS-6XL in a range of 7 colours, the 5.11 ripstop poly cotton long sleeved TDU shirt is made to a very high standard with triple stitched construction, bar tacking at stress points and top quality materials and costs around £39.99.

Don’t be put off by the gung-ho name – this is a seriously useful shirt for field use. Mind you, if you like the military look, the shirt comes with sew them on yourself epaulettes and badge-holder.
