Great Shirt, Better Quality

Was issued a competitors shirt for our unit. Spent my own money for First Tactical. Fit was great, comfortable for longer details, and had availability with fast shipping.

Amazing defender shirt!

Fits perfectly, High quality. The ability to take someone down into cuffs without it untucking or getting damaged is awesome! The only downside, Is I only own two of them… /:

Great "Under Armor" Shirt

Length is great and will stay tucked in, chest is compression and fits a little snug. Looks great under a plate carrier or a uniform outer vest. I saw it listed in a description somewhere after I bought it but the sleeves only roll up once or twice. Provides air flow but wont let you roll it half way up the forearm, which is probably good for professional uniform sake but loses a point on the "tacticool" scale. Very large shoulder patch panels which is great and can allow adding a call sign or flag patch with department patch.
