Motor Duty Shirt
The First Traditional Looking Police Shirt That Provides Comfort in Hot Weather, Motoport’s New Moto Duty Shirt
In the summer months of 2013 it stayed an average of 110 degrees in Nogales, Arizona. All the motor officers complained about the cotton/wool long and short sleeve duty shirts. These duty shirts were hot and uncomfortable to wear. All the officers were sweating excessively in these shirts all day long. Not only could the sweat be seen by the public during the day, at the end of the day the upper parts of the shirts were white from the dried sweat. After wearing the new Moto Duty Shirt the Nogales Police told Motoport that it was the best shirt ever worn. No sweat showing, no staining and far cooler than the short sleeve traditional duty shirts. Even works well when not riding or sitting at a desk.
It is now becoming common for officers wearing short sleeve shirts to have problems with over exposure to the sun resulting in skin cancer.
To top off the list of problems, traditional police shirts offer zero protection in a crash, on a foot chase or when in a fight.
From this demand Motoport started making the Moto Duty Long Sleeve Shirt for the police. Here are the main benefits of the Moto Duty Shirt as compared to the traditional duty shirts:
- Far more comfortable. (NanoSphere, 3 Times Dry, Cold Black, click on links below)
- Works better in hot weather than any other material currently available.
- Elbow/Forearm, Shoulder armor for impact protection.
- Should last 2 to 3 times longer than a duty shirt.
- Will not show sweat in the extreme hot weather.
- Will not fade.
- Stronger Seam Strength, Tear Strength.
- Long sleeve UV protection, cooler than a short sleeve duty shirt.
- Machine Washable armor and all, will hang dry quickly.
- Custom sizing.
- Made in the USA.
- Will stay cleaner, repel water, dry quickly.
- Better Guarantee. If a rider crashes and Motoport cannot repair for less than 50% of a new shirt, we provide a new shirt for free.
Motoport Sizing Guides
Please call or email your measurements to ensure proper fit. For riders that require custom sizing please call 1-800-777-6499 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please call for more accurate ship dates. 1-800-777-6499
To ensure proper sizing Motoport needs: Height / Weight / Sleeve (from center at base of neck around outside of arms to bend in wrist). To give us the most accurate sleeve measurement, follow the Dress Shirt Sleeve instructions below. Actual Chest / Actual Waist. (No jacket or pant sizes.)Do not inhale when measuring chest. Waist should be measured where you tighten the belt. All measurements taken in a relaxed position. Tape measure should also be comfortable, not tight or loose.NOTE:If ordering Aero-Tex liner we need a neck circumferance measurement at collar height or 2″ from the base of your neck.
Follow these instructions to measure for correct sleeve length
Measuring a motorcycle jacket alone is not good. Please help to confirm the proper sleeve length by measuring a Dress Shirt Sleeve length as shown below. Also make sure to mention when providing this measurement, that this is a dress shirt sleeve length not a jacket sleeve length measurement, measured as shown in Sizing Detail.
Note: Your dress shirt sleeve measured as shown above should be approximately 2″ shorter than the jacket sleeve length measured.
After we receive the above measurements, we will advise if any other measurements are necessary.
• Entire Front, back and sleeves of shirt are made with a Dynatec/Lycra Weeve. This material is not as tear/abrasion resistant compared to our other Shirts, but it does offer more protection compared to a traditional duty shirt. This shirt has impact protection in the shoulders and elbow/forearms.
The zip cuffs will also not ride up the arms in a tumble like the standard duty shirts. The material also has a higher abrasion rating over the standard duty cotton/wool blend shirts along with exceptional tear strength. * We currently sell both black and a dark blue. Both colors do not absorb heat in the sun like the traditional shirts.
Shirt material also has a new invention called Three Times Dry: http://www.schoeller-textiles.com/en/technologies/3xdry.html This new technology allows the moisture to spread out, not showing and drying quickly keeping the rider cooler in hot weather. This also keeps the shirt cleaner with less staining. The black shirt is actually our coolest color with another new technology called Cold Black: http://www.schoeller-textiles.com/en/technologies/coldblack.html
* The exceptional feel of the material and comfort for all uses see: http://www.schoeller-textiles.com/en/technologies/nanosphere.html * Long YKK Zipper Vent that runs across the back upper shoulders. Vent cannot be seen when Velcro flap is closed that covers the zipper.
- Collar is sewn down. This was done to match the standard Police shirts • YKK Zipper to open/close the front, with buttons to match the traditional duty shirt appearance.
- Zippered sleeve cuffs with a button closure to again match the traditional duty shirt.
- Two front pockets.
- World’s top rated, lightweight, perforated Tri-Armor that fully covers: shoulders, elbows/forearms. All Tri-Armor is in Velcro-secured pockets and can be removed. The Tri-Armor is all perforated and does not make the shirt warmer in hot weather. The armor pulls the shirt away from the skin making an air space for the perforated armor to breathe. * Machine Washable armor and all. No need to dry clean.Options
