    Are the shirts sized small as well? I am thinking about putting in an order for some things and was wondering how to go when on the border size wise.

    This sizing issue is a little odd to me. I have always thought the 511 pants to be loose fitting compared to Levis. That is not true for the nylon ones, though. They are a snugger fit than the cotton. I'm a 32 X 32 in Levis, but 30 X 32 Cotton 511's fit me just fine. 511's are the only pants I buy.

    The shirts are true to size, but they are long so they stay tucked in. For me, too long for untucked wear.

    I wear the 5.11 holster shirt alot, but other than a 5.11 BDU belt that's about it. The vest (IMHO) screams "I've got a gun" but I'm in GA where on a dry day the humidity is 98%. I'm not a fan of cargo pants, don't like the flappy pockets. I'm thinking about trying the khaki conceal dress pants.

    I have several pair of the dress pants from 5.11. I wear them all the time and they are quite comfortable. They are heavy though. In the GA heat and humidity, they are warm. They are nearly as heavy as jeans.
    I purchased my first three pair of 5.11s the same size as my jeans. The next pair I ordered two inches shorter.
    You will not be disappointed in the quality.

    I have some 511's but I found another brand called " Propper they make good bdu's as well as tactical wear. Their tactical pants fit me better than 511's and they are a few dollars cheaper than 511's.
