Hello,

 

I ordered my first combat shirt from Crye the other week and the arms were super baggy, the body fit very well, however the arms were more like pillow cases.

 

Is this common for combat shirts? 

 

I wanted to get a few of these shirts for dog training, loved the functional sleeve pockets.

 

Is there another brand I should be looking at that is high quality that has more slimmer sleeves?

 

Thanks!

The two different brands I have used (5.11 and TruSpec) also have fairly baggy sleeves. I think it is just kind of how they cut that style shirt.

Easy fix for that. Do some curls.

I wear a small long uniform top. The crye combat shirt in Small Long fits exactly the same as the issued SL uniform top in the sleeves. When I got a massif combat shirt circa 2007, I had to wear a large for the sleeves to even be comfy leaving the chest too loose.
I honestly think the loose sleeves on the crye shirt are how they should be, loose for airflow. I understand the massif shirts are tight for better flame/ burn protection but it's just not my style at all......

as SKD mentioned, the baggy sleeves may be by design to help ventilate in hot climates while wearing said long sleeves.  just my personal experience.

Truth. My FROG gear is the same way. When they're worn as designed, in the environments they were meant for, it will all make sense.

 

Tight sleeves are for t-shirts. Leave your operational shit loose. Freedom of movement with your clothing is something that is rarely appreciated or even noticed, til you don't have it.

I would have to double check the size but my Massiff combat shirts (which I believe is a med-long) are a perfect fit... I wish my arms were big enough to make the sleeves tight but that's a different story all together.

I am by no means a big guy either but the massif shirts are just "chick going clubbing" tight in my opinion.
