Loose and Tight Fit 5.11® Undergear™

Sept. 21, 2009

Although 5.11® undershirts stay behind the scenes most of the time, they're front and center when it comes to comfort and performance. For work, casual and workout wear, choose from Loose Fit 5.11 Undergear™ or Tight Fit 5.11 Undergear™. Both feature saddle-shoulder construction for greater range of motion, flat-lock seams to reduce chafing and underarm mesh panels to vent and evaporate moisture. Chris Corino, northwest regional manager for Smith & Wesson, says his Loose Fit 5.11 Undergear shirts are "super comfortable" and wick away moisture and perspiration - even in stressful or hot environments. "They're by far my favorite undergarment," he says. Corino has owned black and white versions of the Loose Fit shirts for about a year. He says they're "very durable and well made. They wash well, pack easily and so far they're good as new." Corino wears the undershirts to the gym and the beach because they're lightweight and dry easily. His wife, who has cancer, likes to wear his soft, loose-fitting 5.11 Undergear shirts while she undergoes chemo, Corino says. Priced from $19.99, generously sized Loose Fit 5.11 Undergear is made of antimicrobial and quick-drying 100% polyester and comes in crew and v-neck styles. If you like more support, choose Tight Fit 5.11 Undergear, which is made of 82% poly/18% spandex and provides all-day, under-uniform support. The Tight Fit crew is available with short or long sleeves and pricing begins at $19.99.
