Product Review: 5.11 covert/CCW shirt
Good off-duty/CCW, plain clothes stuff is not easy to find. I hear people complain all the time how hard it is to find clothing that makes CCW easier and more comfortable. The 5.11 Covert/CCW Shirt achieves that basic goal. It is comfortable, well designed, and reasonably priced.
Maybe it’s just me and my type AAA personality, but it seems comfortable well designed clothes that work well for CCW is a never ending quest, at least for me. At the end of the day, it also has to look like actual casual wear, versus “shoot me first” clothing that is “tacti-cool” and draws attention to itself. The shirt is made from a lightweight rayon fabric, has a mesh lining (which tends to smooth out sharp edges and such), has various well placed internal pockets and a breakaway bottom side vents for sidearm access.
Personally, I particularly like the cut of this shirt. I’m a short stocky guy (a tad under 200 lbs. and under 5’7” with high humidity) and often have a tough time finding such shirts that fit my shape and hide my gear that don’t break the bank.
Considering the cost (suggested retail of $39, give or take) it's a damn good product which makes CCW and/or plain-clothes work a lot easier. The 5.11 company spiel goes like so:
Does this shirt live up to it’s claims and promise? Yup. I’m ordering several more in different colors as we speak...
