5.11 Taclite Pro Shirts - Comfortable PerformanceDecember 13, 2010
511 Tactical made these shirts out of a 65/35 polyester/cotton blend as opposed to 100% cotton, which makes them lighter (only four ounces instead of the more typical six) and dry faster. The entire button-down shirt has been treated with a Teflon coating, to prevent the seemingly inevitable mustard stain. Traditional apparel isn't typically made for the outdoors enthusiast or active man - typically all fashion over function. Sports apparel tends to make you look like a gym rat, or a college student. That's where brands like 5.11 Tactical come into the picture. The 5.11 Taclite Pro Shirts look great - just like any other fine button-down shirt. But at the same time, this tactical button-down shirt has features that prove 5.11 understands its market. The shoulder seam is more forward than on a traditional shirt - what this means is that while it looks completely normal, if you are wearing a sling or carrying a bag, the shirt will not chafe against your shoulders. Is that understanding your customers or what? These shirts also have features you will love once you get a chance to use them, including hidden document slots, ventilation slots in the back to keep you cool, and a pen pocket on your left arm. All these little features add up to make this shirt a supreme value!
