    PJs source their threads from Crye, first response was correct. Those are Crye Precision Combat Shirt ACs. If you want to look like a PJ, pick up one of those.

    If you just want a decent 1/4 zip top layer with a lightweight, moisture-wicking and highly-breathable torso fabric and decent elbow fabric, look into 5.11's Rapid Assault Shirt. I've owned both and never noticed any reflection of the vast difference in price in the quality of the product. In fact I found the 5.11 more easy to use, as without elbow pads I did not catch every goddamned shoulder strap that I tried to throw on.

    A plethora of companies produce knock-off "combat shirts" like the original Crye. Minute differences between their products, I say dont waste your money and get the $60 5.11.

    Jesus Christ that picture is huge!

    AFSOC guys roll Crye gear, but keep in mind you wont be able to get any of that in Fire Retardant material if thats a requirement for you.

    Proper makes the FR Frogman Shirt a lot of guys are getting, but they are about $200 a piece.

    The skin tight under-armor shirts regular Joes wear are ****ing awful, avoid them and get the loose fitting ones you are looking at.

    It's beyond agitating that there isn't a UCP/ACU Frog shirt.

    Bugs me to no end.

    The closest I've seen is the New Balance S7 FR shirt, but they make it impossible to buy one direct, which is a massive pain in the balls for your average soldier.

    Who still wears that in the field? I am just asking because I have not heard of too many people wearing USP/ACUs in the field any more.

    I've been wearing the TruSpec shirt under my heavy vest for our team and it has preformed well. It is in desert digital.

    Somewhere, there is a Command Sergeant Major having a heart attack...

    ETA: Sorry my brain is in Army speak. Chief Master Sergeant? I'm not sure. Purely smartass, half bitter comment that didn't do much for the thread.

    Over some AFSOC guys? Well that sure is a waste of time.

    I always wondered what three PJs being shown a card trick looked like.

    I thought the Crye stuff was fire retardant/resistant?

    I may be mistaken but I don't believe the stuff you can buy off the website is FR and they will only make FR uniforms for bulk orders to military units.

    This is quoted from the G3 shirt description.

    Description
    The design that started a movement. When we developed the first version of our signature shirt, we had no idea that it would lead to such widespread adoption of our basic design. The G3 Combat Shirt™ is a combat-specific garment specifically designed to be worn under body armor. It keeps you cool with wicking, lightweight, high-performance, flame-resistant DRIFIRE® torso fabric and reinforced Mil-Spec 50/50 NYCO ripstop sleeves. Designed for use with our patented removable AirFlex™ Elbow Pads or our legacy Field Elbow Pads (sold separately). The G3 Combat Shirt™ features a zip collar that allows easy donning and doffing while keeping slings, straps, and brass off your neck. Made in US from US materials. Patented, other patents pending.

    Features

    Comfort placket behind zipper
    Double layer bicep pocket
    New eye-pro holder and pen pocket
    Flexible Velcro® configuration on bicep pocket
    Streamlined elbow pad configuration designed for use with our patented removable AirFlex™ Elbow Pads or our legacy Field Elbow Pads (sold separately)
    That appears to only be the non MC portion of the shirt. The arms and pants are not FR as far as I read.
