This shirt makes for a nice fusion of a common work shirt and a BDU shirt. This version is mostly comprised of 5.4-oz. cotton canvas, but 4.7-oz. nylon ripstop is also available. Cargo style pockets are on the chest along with great side opening velcro chest pockets. The left shoulder has 2 sleeves for pens or similar items and the reinforced collar has a button down ability.
In the rear is a ventillation opening to keep things cool, however mesh is used to keep bad elements out. 5.11 went the extra mile and most of the shirt is tripple stiched. Also included is a badge holder piece and Epaulet shoulder pieces with buttons. Sewing is required for adding these items. Sorry for the out-of-bag appearance on these pictures. I had to quickly take pictures when I met up with my SF friend who will be further using and reviewing the shirt.
