Now a battle-tested staple, the combat shirt didn't exist until the early 2000s. It was developed as part of an Army initiative known as the Objective Force Warrior program. The program aimed to find innovative solutions to soldiers' uniform and equipment issues. One of its main accomplishments was the lightweight, moisture-wicking combat shirt. The aggressive camouflage sleeves still offer maximum durability and concealment, but the torso is made from breathable, thin material that keeps you cool and comfortable.
Great & Heavy Duty, but Gets Hot.

I'd hate to rate it lower than 5, but the heat retension gets bad. Even the desert camouflage version gets very warm in the summer.Being made of 65/35 Poly/Cotton Twill instead of 50/50 NYCO rip-stop [or even 50/50 NYCO twill], it retains heat here in Arizona. However, in colder weather from November to February, Poly/Cotton is awesome, but any other time of the year, it gets muggy in these "Digital Battle Shirts" and "Digital Battle Trousers". However for relatively lightweight, soft but awesomely tough BDUs for airsofting or paint-balling i do recommend these because they don't tear easily. (Note this is not the official MCCUU coat, American Apparel makes those for Marines Only, if you want the legit MARPAT camo uniform, join the Marines and wear the uniform)
