5.11 Tactical Freedom Flex Shirt

posted on June 5, 2014

When the weather gets warmer, finding a way to conceal your sidearm becomes more of a quandary. Sure, you can trade your full- or mid-size handgun for a subcompact or pocket gun, but if you want to stay consistent with your carry piece, you need a good cover garment.

The 5.11 Tactical Freedom Flex Shirt is just such a cover garment. Constructed of polyester stretch fabric and featuring mesh sections for ventilation, the Freedom Flex Shirt keeps you both covered and cool in the summer heat. Designed to wick moisture away for maximum cooling, the shirt also has oversized pen pockets on the sleeves and double front pockets for extra carrying capacity. Available colors are Black, Battle Brown, Storm and Underbrush.

Having a lightweight shirt that can cover your gear in the summer heat is a good thing. Having a well-made, quality shirt with ventilation to keep you cool and snap closures for easy access to whatever lies beneath is even better. The Freedom Flex Shirt is a comfortable, durable and practical way to keep things under wraps when wearing a vest or sweatshirt just won't do.

MSRP: $64.99.
