The German military tricot shirt is a simple shirt that features a 100 percent baumwolle, or "cotton," construction alongside a classic olive drab coloring. The biggest feature found on this shirt is its inclusion of a quarter-length zipper at the neckline, which provides for either a traditional folded-collar look or a turtleneck. As it features a tricot weave, there is very little vertical stretch, but some give horizontally.
This particular style of tricot shirt has been used by the German military for a decade or more and has won universal praise from soldiers. Citing it as being comfortable, versatile, and performing under battlefield conditions this shirt has become a favorite of both active duty and veteran soldiers in Germany. Now that this shirt has been sold as government surplus, it has made its way to the United States where it has become just as popular.

Feels very nice. It's warm but not especially thick, so good for layering or wearing by itself in not-too-cold weather. The collar can be a little funky but not a problem really, and looks nice zipped up or down, so still 5 stars in all depts. My only complaint was that, even after getting it two sizes above my normal size, the sleeves were still too short, (huh!) but it's fine because I wear my sleeves up. Yay!
Nicely made, possibly issued at some point. Great for the price however. Good for layering.
I purchased three of these shirts in XL. Each is slightly different in fabric consistency and texture, but theres not a doubt in my mind that they'll be an excellent compliment to the rest of my wardrobe for instances in which a t-shirt is too little and a thicker waffle shirt is "too much". Would definitely order more again.
Great fit and quality cotton shirt. Just fells comfy at first fit. Bought 2 at price to get longer device out of em
Dirt cheap and wonderful, versatile and practical!
What more is there to say?
I picked up the US Large, and I'm glad I did. I am a medium by most definitions and the only place this ran big was in the shoulders. Other than that, it fits comfortably with a bit of room to spare. It adds an extra layer of warmth without feeling too hot.
A good shirt in a good color. Well worn, but nice cotton.
I like a loose shirt... Large... Ordered a large and its tight, I'll order up in size. Size matters you know.
My shirt is like new with zero defects. It fits nicely my 5'7" 195 frame -not too tight. The sleeves are the right length. This is a wonderful value and only wish I had order more.
These are some of the best long-sleeve shirts I've seen! 100% Cotton, perfectly comfortable and warm, the right length, definitely appear unissued and NEW!!! Only one of five of these shirts purchased had two tiny holes . . . no worries, these are amazing quality and at an unbeatable price! Already buying more . . . several in the family want a batch! Thanks KeepShooting.com!
Just got two of these in and I instantly fell in love. Well worn but in great condition. Super soft and comfy, great shirts to lounge around or hit the bush with in spring weather.
They are meant to fit tighter than regular shirts, which I like. But they are by no means too small.
The Germans make some of the best gear on the planet and these shirts are no exception. Can be worn as an excellent base layer as long as it's not directly next to the skin (cotton) would be a great mid layer. Or use them however you. Please in summer or spring.
Fantastic bombproof rugged work shirts. Simply can't go wrong for the price, will last a lifetime.
Don't let the 0 quantity fool you.. THEY ARE STILL IN STOCK ;)
Feels good, allows mobility. They do not appear to be what I consider to be XXL as they are a bit snug. Overall I still think they are a great deal.
