Some of our customers have stated that they think the shirt runs one size big. Some reviews on the internet also state that say the shirt runs large. Obviously fit is a personal preference, so take that into consideration when selecting your size. The chest and back material allow you to wear a vest or chest rig quite comfortably. As opposed to a BDU or ACU coat which can be quite bulky and restrictive, the combat shirt allows you to move freely and keep cooler in warmer weather. Some of our customers have told us they use the shirt in mountaineering and rock climbing as the pockets are very handy for smaller items such as a cell phone and the sleeves are quite durable.
