Stay dry and comfortable on the jobsite with Carhartt Force®. Its FastDry® technology wicks away sweat for comfort and its Stain Breaker® technology releases stains so you look good wash after wash. Don't sweat being seen.
If your going to be doing any cutting or grinding this shirt is terrible, just melts and gets full of burrs. The Hi-Vis properties are excellent, would be perfect if you could get this same shirt in 100% Cotton!!!
The material is stretchy and pleasant. It dries quickly. I have a wide variety of tasks from sitting at the computer to being out in the woods. Yesterday I found myself tangled up in some briars. When I got free of them, I was pleasantly surprised to see there were no snags in the fabric.
I am very happy with the breathability and wicking features of this shirt. It is worn and washed daily up to five times a week, and the color has not faded or the reflective material cracked. I do use a laundry bag to protect the shirt though. I am very disappointed that Carhartt is not offering tall sizes in this shirt. It's frustrating having to wear a baggy shirt that still does not cover my back side. There is a set of large tags on the left side seam which can be irritating when you are bending and moving while working.
Purchased these because I have always bought Carhartt products and always durable but these shirts to me are awful. Got them in the mail and took off the tags and the front stickers, which left the adhesive on the shirt and attracted all the dirt and dust so it looked ridiculous. Within an hour of having my first shirt on it was already snagged in the front just below the pocket. Same happened on my second shirt with the sticker adhesive. After getting home from my trip, I travel for the railroad, I washed both my new shirts and after that I looked at them but where the stickers and adhesive were the dirt and dust were still on them.
The pros to these shirts are they are very lightweight, comfortable and stretch very easily. The reflective is ironed on so that is nice, not stitched like other brand are so it freely flexes with your movements.
I don't think for the price I will purchase these again in the future, rather go with my works own version of this shirt.
Does not come in tall. I love the feeling of the shirt and it keeps me fairly cool in the summer. If this came in tall I'd be very happy. I'm a guy who likes tucking my shirt in and I can't do that with this shirt as it'll untuck as I move in the slightest.

Worst Purchase Ever!
First off this is one of the most expensive safety shirts out there... Was hoping it was worth the money... By far the tightest XL shirt I have ever bought! The collar will chock you to death and after one wash it looks like a belly shirt ! Don't waste your money... Very Very Disappointed!
It is short sleeve and I did not see or buy it for UV protection. I bought it to use as some of my cross country night driving apparel. Great for getting out at night to check your vehicle, taking a rest break walking across parking lots and roadways at night. I wear it every time I am going to be driving all night. Hi Vis works better.
