5.11 Tactical Series Covert Casual Shirt 2.0 :: Review

Three words to describe the 5.11 Covert Casual Shirt 2.0:
  • Stylish
  • Functional
  • Discreet
I've been wearing the Covert Casual 2.0 off and on for the past two months and can tell you it has passed the ultimate test for clothing in my book. It has survived repeated washings by my wife... I had to make sure she wasn't behind me. Seriously, nothing annoys me more then when a shirt shrinks, fades, or just falls apart for no apparent reason. I have not experienced any of these problems with the 5.11 Covert Casual Shirt 2.0

This is what 5.11 has to say about their shirt:
Our new collection of Covert Casual Shirts for spring 2011 delivers fresh new fabrics and patterns to keep your undercover wardrobe updated and looking good. For the new styles we have selected a lightweight 55% cotton 45% polyester fabric that is soft and comfortable yet durable and easy to care for. In an effort to improve performance we have removed the mesh lining to lighten the garment keeping you cooler in hot, humid environments. Our Rapid Draw center placket with false exterior buttons and easy open metal snaps give you immediate access to a shoulder holster or the 511 Holster Shirt. If you carry a handgun on your waist, the Covert Casual Shirt is cut a bit longer to maintain your anonymity. We’ve included breakaway side vents for quick access to your sidearm when you need it. Lastly we’ve incorporated two hidden chest pockets made popular on our line of Tactical Shirts. So whether you are doing undercover work or just need a great looking casual shirt for the weekend the new Covert Casual Shirt from 511 Tactical has you covered.
Even with the two large interior chest pockets the shirt is light and comfortable. The first two top buttons are standard buttons, but the rest down the front of the shirt are fake. They appear to be actual but are in fact snaps that are quite sturdy but will tear away once you give them a tug. Tugging away the snaps gives you access to the two chest pockets or a shoulder holstered firearm (5.11 Tactical Holster Shirt fills this niche perfectly). If you opt to conceal a firearm at the hip the Covert Casual 2.0 has integrated a cut at the 3 and 9 o'clock that are secured by Velcro. These cuts allow for quick access to which ever hip you may have a firearm holstered.

The best part is that the Covert Casual 2.0 doesn't look like it has all of these features. That is why I will continue to shop with 5.11 Tactical for more Concealed Carry Clothing.
