While DefenseReview (DR) was walking the floor at SOFIC (Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) 2016, we ran across a lo-pro/lo-vis (low-profile/low-visiblity) blue plaid flannel tactical shirt on a mannequin at th TSSI booth that we really liked called the 5.11 Flannel Shirt, Color: Valiant, Style 72429-716. It’s a really nice-looking lo-pro/lo-vis (low-profile/low-visibility) tactical flannel work shirt that’s been optimized for concealed carry (CCW) and travel with its “unique RAPIDraw™ breakaway placket for quick access to a 5.11 Holster Shirt™ or a traditional shoulder holster” and “traditional 5.11 Hidden Document Pockets®”.
Regardless, the 5.11 Tactical Flannel Shirt Valiant blue plaid long-sleeve work shirt features a bold flannel pattern in a medium blue white, grey and yellow color scheme that’s really sharp looking and appears to be very well made. It’s really one of the nicet CCW shirts DR’s seen so far, and worth a very serious look by anyone looking for a shirt of this type. We REALLY dig it.
Defense Review’s going to try to find out more about the the 5.11 Flannel Shirt’s “RAPIDraw breakaway placket” and Snapwell® faux button snaps, and we’re also going to try to get ahold of one of these for T&E. In the meantime, enjoy the photos.
