Tru-Spec Tactical Response Uniform (TRU) Combat Shirt
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 (ACUPAT ONLY) 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 reduce pinching.
It's A Base Layer - The body of the Tru-Spec Tactical Response Uniform (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.

I bought one of these to use in the ems field and I feel it is a great shirt. They have redesigned the pockets on the sleeves so they are facing inward and easy to access and I ordered a 2xl long which accomodated for the longer arms and trunk. It still fits a little snug but overall a big improvement on the first shirts.

Overall great shirt. I love mine, very comfortable, very well thought out design. For those of my fellow service members that have a larger arm length, not to draw business from uscav, but I suggest trying acuarmy.Com. They sell these shirts in the longer sleeve sizes.

An excellent shirt, practical and tough. I bought 5 of the tru shirts before my latest deployment overseas based on my excellent experience with tru-specs tac-light pants and they didn't disappoint. I did not have any unusual wear and the color stayed bright even after many washings and untold hours in the sun. The stitching never pulled out and the fabric never frayed even at the stress points. The only complaint I have is with the collar, it seemed to pull down easily leaving my vest to chew up my skin, I would make it taller and stiffer. I have had shirts that I paid twice as much for fall apart with less wear than I put these shirts through. All in all, I feel that I got a good value and I won't hesitate to buy more if they ever do wear out.

I have owned three of these shirts for about a year and they are all in great shape, only bad thing is the collar. It does not sit tight around the neck, if you put anything heavier then a back of smoke in the arm pouches the collar will sag down. Great product overall and it's cheap. Thank you u.S. Cav

Decent Article - Some Changes Needed

My background: I am a tactics and marksmanship instructor in the civilian world. I get to run my gear stupidly hard and if it's going to fail it will. Pro's: +cheap +made well +nothing had broken yet con's: -poor color choice for shirt top. Works good for desert training areas, sucks in the mountains or anything green. -T-shirt collar is greatest weakness. Mandarin collar would have resulted in this garment being full of win - instead it gets full of fail designation. --The t-shirt collar doesn't protect well enough against the sun on the back of you're neck or you're body armor chafing, especially when sitting. --The sleeves feel floppy and poorly attached to the garment because there isn't any support for their position on you're body other than the stretchy t-shirt material.
Great Quality!! Great Price!!!

I give the tru-spec combat shirt a 5 star rating. I ordered the acupat first. After opening immdieatly as I was impressed. I have been in the field 5 times with the same shirt (washed of course). It had not frayed, it had not worn in any of the areas of other more expensive combat shirts. I know own 6 total 3 acu, 3 multi-cam. I would suggest this shirt for anyone wanting good versatility, with great pricing. I own three massif combat shirts..They are good don't get me wrong..And fr is a plus..But, they are tight fitting and tend to bind. The tru spec combat shirts in hands down the best on the market for quality and pricing. Spec. B. Williams
Tru-Spec Falls Short Of Mil-Spec Standards On Combat Shrit.

These shirts are really comfortable, but that's where my praise ends. I have five of these shirts, of which five are falling apart. Despite being very careful about the way I wash all my gear, body of every single one of them is balling up and the material is being chewed through in a hurry from simply washing and drying. In addition, I have only worn kit over three of the shirts, those three are in the worst shape with holes where my cummerbund comes across the abdomen. The two other shirts have never been worn with kit in light training and they are coming apart too. Two of the five shirts are literally falling apart at the seems also, as the stitching is falling out. The worst part of the hole thing is I have contacted tru-spec via email twice know. I was very polite and even explained I don't care to get a refund, I don't want any replacements, I would just like an explanation and for them to correct the issues. They never responded! That's right, they won't even respond. Bottom line, you get what you pay for, and if you are in a combative mos or career wearing kit all day everyday this shirt won't last five uses. Don't spend $70 on this shirt when you can by a real crye precision shirt that won't fall apart. I know $145 for a shirt is expensive, but you are getting a product that will not fall apart using it as intended. If it does, you can rest assured they will stand behind it and they will replace it for free.
