Also known as UBACS, which stands for the Under Body Armour Combat Shirt, the classic combat shirt is a military upper garment, designed specifically to be worn under body armour or assault vests in warm and hot weather. Its main body is made of high-performance, lightweight and breathable material that absorbs and wicks sweat, therefore, keeps the wearer cool and comfortable even in scorching conditions. What is more, the shirt's torso zips up to the neck which allows easy donning and doffing while high, stand-up collar keeps slings, straps and brass off the neck. In the majority of combat shirts in our collection, the long arms are made of durable Ripstop material and have adjustable cuffs, elbow reinforcements or padding on the forearm, upper arm and shoulders. Moreover, located on the upper arms are large patch pockets, big enough for admin paperwork or maps. These pockets are additionally covered in soft loop Velcro for the attachment of rank patches, blood patches, etc. Some of the combat shirts also feature lower arm pockets. Available at the UK based Military 1st online store is a wide range of quality combat shirts, in a variety of colours and camouflage patterns, including genuine MultiCam and A-TACS camo, from such renowned brands like 5.11 Tactical, Helikon and Propper.
