The Jedburgh Cover Shirt was a collaborative between Re-Factor and TD. They spent over a year designing and refining the details, with more than 10 sample iterations made before they were ready for production. This was a purpose built shirt from the beginning, built for people who need to operate in warm environments without being overt. Both Tactical Distributors and RE Factor Tactical will have them for sale in late May.
Fabric: The fabric is a moisture wicking 2 way stretch fabric designed for hot environments. The stretch gives the user freedom to move without constraint. On the inside of the placket there is a heavy nylon fabric with pockets to give the user structure for when they sweep the shirt back for a clean draw and to reduce imprinting of any weapon the user may have in their appendix area.
Snaps: They chose snaps for easy access of weapons. The snaps are dyed to match the color of the shirt so they do not standout to any onlookers.
Pockets: Inside, there are 3 document pockets. Each is sized to fit a US issued passport or other small cards or pieces of paper.
Left chest external pocket: Has a one snap closure. The two pockets that are on the inside nylon reinforced plackets can hold coins or weights for extra weight when sweeping the shirt to the side for weapon presentation. The top stitch of the pockets is not noticeable on the outside.
Branding: There is no external branding on this shirt. Hence Covert.
Colors: The first two colors we are going to offer are: Dark Urban Grey and Blue Shadow
