Review: I have been using this jersey about a month or so before D-day 06. For the money, it is a pretty decent jersey. You get another quality product courtesy of Spec Ops with great features for playing in the woods.

The key plusses for this paticular jersey is that it is incredibly lightweight. It is made out of roughly the same mesh that jerseys for football use. This provides great airflow when the weather is in the mid to high 90's. All you need is a slight breeze, and you can feel the sweat whisking away from your body. Another key feature is that the elbows are reinforced and this once again helps out when doing a mad crawl. The digi pattern is well designed and even has the Spec Ops logo blended in. It is a great pattern when you are waiting for to spring that perfect ambush. The high neck, and the longer wrist cuffs provide extra protection against direct shots, and also help in a minor way to keep bugs off. The last major feature that I have noticed, is that it comes a little baggy which is key to getting a bounce. All in all this jersey provides you with all the basics that you will ever really need for a hot day of play.

As all products though, there can always be room for improvement. The biggest problem that I have is that I use my tank for my stock. It doesn't really stick to the mesh for some unknown reason. I ended up having to go buy a Dye Rhino tank cover (great investment by the way) over my JT one, to get any sort of stick. Now while I like the elbows, I have used a few jerseys that already have elbow padding built in that is made of kevlar. That would really save the elbows even more as every now and then a rogue twig or sticker will jab through. I don't know why I didn't list it up a little higher, but the #2 weakness is also the #1 advantage. The mesh can really get hung up on foliage that is on the dense side of things. I am not saying you are flapping your arms around trying to get free, but it does take a quick pull every now and then (still no tears which really attests to the quality.) One last thing that I can thing of that should be put on this jersey is that maybe a little rubber nubbies on the back. Most people who purchase Spec Ops equipment also buy vests. The rubber would help hold the vest secure and not give any bounce or jiggle.
Conclusion: For your typical "woods" player, this is a great jersey to own. My rating is the way it is because while it is a better jersey than many I have either seen in use, or used myself (which is way more than what I listed as those are other ones I own), it doesn't really compare to the additional features that the contact, and airtime jerseys have. It is better than average, but no where the best. For the money, you can't really do much better for this jersey.
