Having the right under shirt for a ballistic vest is crucial for comfort and performance. The 5.11 Tight Crew Long Sleeve Shirt fits that need with its unique design and features. This tight crew long sleeve shirt is designed for wear under body armor but is also great for casual and workout wear. Available in short and long-sleeve crews, these tight crew long sleeve shirts are a necessity for body armor wear.
Wearing ballistic vests can be very uncomfortable if the wrong undergarment is worn. Key comfort design features of the 5.11 Tight Crew includes saddle-shoulder construction which offers greater range of motion and an underarm mesh panel that allows moisture to vent and evaporate easily. The flat-lock seams are one of our unique changes to under gear for ballistic vests. These seams significantly reduce friction and prevent chafing. Finally, these shirts cling tightly to your body and won’t bunch up to form uncomfortable wrinkles like many cotton undershirts.
Made of 82% polyester and 18% spandex, the 5.11 Tight Crew Long Sleeve Shirt is designed to last. The mild athletic compression fit keeps this shirt close to the body for comfort and support. You’ll find that you feel like you don’t even have an undershirt on once you start wearing the Tight Crew under a ballistic vest. The printed label eliminates those annoying collar tags which can be very irritating.
Affordable enough for everyday wear, the 5.11 Tight Crew Long Sleeve Shirt provides comfort and protection throughout a long work shift. Because of the durability of the 5.11 Tight Crew Shirt an officer will not have to continually purchase replacement shirts for day to day shift work.
