A Fireforce Ventures exclusive - now on closeout, with what's left from our pre-order stocks!

The Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern is legendary, from it's inception during the Rhodesian Bush War, to later service throughout Africa, a variant to this day remains the standard camo of the Zimbabwean Army. At one point, the pattern was noted as being so effective that it was in contention to replace the M83 Woodland pattern for the United States Marine Corps.

We're proud to now offer this outstanding pattern in a combat uniform cut. These shirts feature a 65/35 poly-cotton blended chest, ripstop cotton arms with two velcro paneled shoulder pockets, adjustable velcro cuffs and a zippered collar. This is an outstanding piece of kit for field use, suited for all your "operator" needs. 

We only have a limited amount leftover from our previous pre-orders, so once they're gone, they're gone!

Sleeves could have been just a bit longer for a more familiar fit but I'm 5'6" and the shorter sleeves actually work well in hot and humid temps. The collar was bit wide, I'd like to see a tighter collar to the neck like other combat shirts. A suggestion is that the tag is sewn on to the shirt like other combat shirts instead of having it like a normal shirt; It tends to flip up and chafe when you don't want it to (you can just cut if off). Pockets and elbow pad holes were fine. It works very well when you're wearing a plate carrier or a chest rig. There were some loose strings, but burn them with a lighter and it's fine. I let a friend try it on and he loved it. Would absolutely recommend.

Excellent quality at a reasonable price. Exceptionally comfortable even on a hot day - breathability of the body material is perfect and the sleeves have sufficient ventilation. Collar turns up to a good height to cover the neck properly from the sun. Sleeves don't come down to the wrist which I believe is consistent with the originals and prevents you knocking stuff over or snagging it when doing finnicky stuff with your hands - great design, just be aware that it *is* meant to be that way and don't think it's a manufacturing issue. Sleeve pockets are a good size, velcro opening mechanism feels good quality, should last a long time, and the velcro area for patches has ample space. Minor gripe is that the 'tag' on the collar zipper pulled off very easily when zipping up - not sure if this is a common issue or just my shirt. Not a significant problem since its easy to pinch the zip itself (thumb inside the shirt, fingers outside) and pull it up that way but not as convenient as it's meant to be.

Have an extra large and will buy a second one if you reorder. Great in the FL heat. Great when wearing a plate carrier.
