Double Tough Elbow Protection
The Defender Shirt features features a durable, double-layer elbow pocket that is designed to take abuse throughout a lifetime of use. Pairs with First Tactical's Defender Elbow Pads.
Despite being designed for SWAT teams and high-level operators, the Defender Shirt maintains a professional look without looking overly aggressive.
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.
Awesome shirt, chest and length of shirt is awesome. Very durable. Only drawback is sleeves are a little long
Great shirt for wearing under a plate carrier. I like the zipper pockets on the arms that are easy to access and better than the Velcro pockets of the 5.11 assault shirts!
Shirt is comfortable. Review of durability is still to be seen.
