The shirt retains the collar, velcro down shoulder tabs and velcro cuffs of the standard issue shirt but incorporates additional ventilation holes under the armpits and an expandable arm pockets on both arms. These pockets are the same size as the chest pockets and are set at an able to enable easy opening when armour is worn over the chest and torso. The pockets are fitted with a return flap to prevent contents from being lost when the flap is closed, and a 25mm twill tab is set to alow for easier operation when being opened with gloved hands. The front of the pocket is fitted with velcro for the attachment of other insignia, such as blood patches, unit patches and other insignia. The front of the shirt is fitted with the two chest pockets of the standard issue shirt, but with all buttons removed. The pockets open with two patches of velcro each, and are expandable in the same way as the standard issue shirt. A 25mm wide patch of looped velcro is provided over the left chest pocket for name tapes. The front of the shirt is fited with three 30mm wide, long strips of velcro as central opening. These are separated so as to allow the shirt to ventilate down the chest.

The shirt is made from genuine Hyde Definition Pencott Badlands NYCO ripstop fabric, printed in the USA. The shirt is ideal as a camouflage base layer or mid layer, worn with or without body armour.
