5.11 Taclite Pro Long Sleeve Shirt - Green


Brand: 5.11
Weight: 426 g         29 reviews
The 5.11 Taclite Pro Long Sleeve Shirt is now available after years of stocking the tough 5.11 Tactical Shirt, we decided to try out its lighter counterpart, the Taclite. This ultra-lightweight shirt is still extremely durable, making it ideal for trips in warmer climates. It features an exceptional fit, patented hidden document pockets and an unmatched heat management system.

These Taclite Shirts feature hidden button-down collar stays and a handsome yet functional design. Triple needle construction and reinforced anti-crack, anti-chip melamine buttons result in an amazingly hard-wearing shirt.

Stash travel documents, maps or your phone in 5.11’s patented hidden document pockets located on the front chest of the shirt. Discreetly designed with a Velcro closure and one-handed access, these are strong, roomy pockets. Overlaying the hidden document pockets are large, pleated patch pockets also finished with Velcro. The left pocket incorporates a dual pass-through slot for pens, chem-lights and tyre gauges. Two narrow pen pockets are placed on the left sleeve, totalling six pockets in all.

In addition to its breathable fabrics and strategic construction, the 5.11 Taclite Shirts employ a large cape-back with a tacked center point. Moisture-wicking Drilex material works to efficiently vent and evaporate moisture around the clock. Stitched eyelets at each gusseted underarm further dispel heat and moisture to keep you cool.

  • Durable, ultra-lightweight 4-oz., 65% polyester, 35% cotton ripstop
  • Teflon treated for spill and stain resistance
  • 5.11's patented hidden document pockets
  • Pen pockets on left sleeve
  • Double-reinforced elbows
  • Colour: TDU Green

  Great quality especially considering the price. Versatile as can be worn sleeves down or rolled up (has button retainers) and tucked or untucked, plus roomy fit so in theory different base layer weights could be worn underneath. I was expecting a much slimmer fit but this is definitely more in the mid-layer category (as categorised on this site, so my error). I am a 42' chest and 6ft 1', the medium has long enough sleeves and plenty of room everywhere. I have worn it plenty already for hiking with a wicking base layer and I think it's an excellent garment for spring to autumn in lowland UK. It also sheds water unbelievably well, I've been wearing in instead of my Paramo Bentu jacket! How long that lasts, is still to be seen.

  Purchased after using the regular weight shirt in the winter, great shirt, not as lightweight as I had been expecting, and I find it too hot to use out in full sun in Spring. Under the shade of a wood, it is just right. Well made and rugged.

  This shirt is comfy to wear, hard wearing and ideally suited to someone who has an active outdoor life. Warm in cold weather and cool on warmer days. I would heartily recommend

  I love this shirt, hardwearing and still warm despite being the lighter version, with a baselayer and mid layer underneath. Size wise I tend to be a L in American brands and an XL in British/European brands. The L is a good fit for me with a couple of layers underneath. Highly recommended.

  A replacement for a much worn and loved ten year old original. I have the heavy weight cotton 5.11 shirts as well but the tactile poly cotton version washes and wears better. An ideal summer overshirt with the useful concealed pockets that is unique to 5.11.

  First class service as usual, prompt delivery and a great item. I have the winter version which is quite thick and heavy so I just had to add this to my wardrobe and will probably add another as I am so happy with it. Great roll up sleeves with locking straps, plenty of pockets too. Great product.

  I have the heavy and light weight versions of this shirt having become entranced with it some years ago. Though the heavy cotton version is good, I find the taclite version wears better as well as making an excellent over shirt during warm weather. Mesh panels and vents keep the wearer sweat free. The pockets are masterfully designed. Like the Swanndri shirts (my other fixation) the shirts are big only in these shirts, am I a medium size.

  Need I say any more about this shirt. This is my second shirt of this type and I love them to bits. If I go travelling abroad I always have this shirt with me. It's very comfortable to wear, the pockets are great, especially the hidden pockets to keep your most valuable items like a passport and so forth. My last purchase of this shirt was a medium, even though it fitted me very well, I decided to go for a large version which also fits very well. I have been wearing this shirt in all sorts of weather and it has never let me down. I prefer the sleeves rolled up during warmer days, it's great to roll them up and attach them without the sleeves rolling down. I have had a few people asking where I got the shirt so I told them. It has also got the great advantage of when getting wet it dries pretty quickly. Highly recommended in my humble opinion. Thanks again for the professional service I always get with Woodlore.

  I love this shirt, lightweight and dries very quickly, I quite often just drape it over a branch in a gentle breeze and it's dry in no time, has good ventilation and good size pockets. The buttons which hold the sleeves rolled up to elbow level (military style) are very useful too, I mostly wear it in this fashion. Very happy.
