The same durability and protection of a combat jacket with the comfort of the original combat shirt and the addition of a ¼ zip front with mandarin collar for added protection. Based off the current military design that helps reduce the severity of burn injuries while providing a more comfortable uniform top under body armor and vests. The body of the shirt is made from 60% cotton/40% CORDURA® Baselayer fabric that meets the No Melt, No Drip thermal requirements officers demand while keeping them cool and dry by wicking away moisture from the body.

Purchased this since it's SAR Blaze Orange and the T-shirts I am given weren't doing it for me in the heat. Just as the product description lists, the shirt has a blend of cotton & nylon for wicking and Cordura for sun-blocking. In South Texas even the long sleeve t-shirts we wear do little to prevent sunburn on the neck (no collar) and through the fabric onto my arms. This is a classic all-purpose 1/4 military style shirt with a loose fit. Sleeves seem a little long until you cinch the wrist. Cordura collar is a nice touch as well. No I won't be operating operationally but I will be productive, safe and medium rare rather than well done. Mad City offers a good price if you're willing to wait a few weeks, good follow-up and once they had inventory it was shipped right away. Very pleased.
It was what I needed. Matches the description. Good quality materials.
