In the production of T-shirts and shirts potootvodyaschih UBACS for police operators PMCs or the US military and UK use pleasant to the touch and good "breathable" materials «TF» (TropiFlex) and Coolmax. These same materials are used in the production and tracksuits for professional athletes.
Long sleeves, among other things, increases the protection against insects and sunburn, and combat conditions, in contrast to T-shirts with short sleeves or tank tops, makes it easier to camouflage and remain unnoticed by the adversary. Practitioners know that the open hands and covered with makeup or face mesh are visible from afar. Flashed open parts of the body, it's like a flashlight to give signals to the enemy, they say, here I am - take aim carefully
o our great disappointment, the net does not break, only appeared on the screen surface villi, and dirt and sand easily cleaned up with hand washing. And yes, one of dried pine needles climbed deep into the net, but when I took it out without significant labor, I was glad that during the climb damper mesh protect me from the discomfort and unpleasant sensations.
We must understand that there is nothing eternal. Wipe and Cordura - checked by me. But I do not really like that shirt was easy insertion of the "hot" Cordura. Well, maybe if I had it down a cliff. Actually, everyone chooses what to sacrifice. Strength or comfort.
When used in extremely high temperatures, particularly in the sauna, I noticed the sweat evaporates quickly and, importantly, the steam does not burn as much as the naked body. I believe that on a hot sunny day will be relatively comfortable in this shirt. Will the summer - will experience more.
With regard to cigarette butts, sparks, flames, I note that the material is not fireproof, but, burned, it does not flow thick jet that can leave deep burns and ignite gunpowder. Cigarette butt did not let his shirt ignited, and the hole was formed as if the fabric melts evaporated. Do not fireproof, but relatively safe when dealing with fire.
Traditionally, I paid attention to the seams. Sutures flat - do not rub. Sutures are neat - pleasing to the eye. Sutures quality - will be long. By the way, by contract, made for the British Army, the combat shirt - Curves seams. Sew in China to save. And the soldiers fighting units of developed countries, meanwhile, issued to replace the forms and equipment, buy what they need from specialized manufacturers.
Frogman Range Shirt has a somewhat unusual appearance. Something like suit for motorcycle racer. But those who are worried about their very thin arms and narrow shoulders, probably will not miss the masking volume in the sleeves and massive decorative and protective pads.
Known disadvantages: On the base material, during operation, are formed slight tightening and hairiness is formed on the grid. In places of contact with the damper body stripes a little longer than the heat exchange and evaporation.
I repeat the same thing as in the previous review. The evaluation did not spend in points that no one was hurt, but bekah. According desyatibekovoy system. Remind: Beck - this is my call. After all, we must not forget that this is only my opinion and my assessment, not the ultimate truth!

Frogman Range Shirt is made of high quality materials and fittings, with high wear resistance. Provides comfortable use at elevated temperatures, the air is easily combined with various elements of uniforms and equipment, can withstand higher dynamic loads during heavy exercise, in conditions close to the fighting.
Frogman Range Shirt is not a substitute for combat shirt, the more refractory combat shirt, and conceived as an alternative wicking T-shirt or polo, used in the warm season.
