The XTU Rapid Long Sleeve Shirt offers moisture-wicking and anti-odor performance, a Teflon finish and no-melt/no-drip fabrics for added functionality and protection. Dual pocket sleeves, adjustable cuffs, articulated pits, reinforced elbows and bar-tacking at key stress points provide the functionality needed by law enforcement. Strategic body mapping of the fabrics offers comfortable layering with plate carriers and additional gear.

The XTU Pant is constructed with Ortholite foam support in the strategically offset comfort waistband, a gusseted crotch and seat, large cargo pockets, and no-melt/no-drip fabric to make it withstand the rigors of professional use. It also features a patented 3-in-1 kneepad design with a color-matching and removable external knee protection piece, sewn-in padding for a mid-layer and an internal pocket that houses a removable kneepad insert. An internal vertical adjustment and horizontal external adjustment allow users to create a custom and secure fit.
