T.R.U. Combat Shirt
Lightweight Cordura Baselayer
Tactical Team's Uniform Dream!
Tactical response team
members and military personnel have two main issues integrating body
armor with their uniform. First, main uniform pockets become covered and
unavailable. Second, heavy body armor combined with a uniform top and a
base layer create an unbearably hot environment. The Combat Shirt
concept improves the design of the tactical uniform by reclaiming cargo
pockets and placing them on the sleeves in a more practical arrangement,
reducing weight by eliminating excess uniform material and need for
separate base layer and creating a comfortable, durable and naturally
thermal resistant body that also wicks moisture.
It's A Uniform - the full function sleeves are based on the
extremely popular TRU uniform and available in two high performance
fabric options. Both are tough, durable and field tested to ensure
dependable service under the most challenging conditions. Sweating the
details, TRU-SPEC also added underarm gussets for increased motion and a
padded, abrasion-resistant elbow patch for durability. The sleeve layout
is improved with a zippered storage pocket and pads for insignia as well
as hook and loop cuff closures. Special care was taken to reduce
chaffing and other irritations; the mock turtleneck keeps body armor
from rubbing against the neck area while seams fall off the shoulders to
It's A Base Layer - The body of the
TRU Combat Shirt is made from Cordura® brand Baselayer. This 60/40
cotton/nylon miracle blend insulates the body when exposed to high
temperatures and will not drip or melt onto the skin like polyester.
Cordura® Baselayer fabric is also incredibly breathable, wicking away
moisture 2.5 times faster than 100% cotton, plus it dries quickly. Even
though the fabric is soft, lightweight and comfortable, Cordura® adds
tough-as-nails durability needed to minimize tears and other abrasions.
