British Army MTP UBACS PCS Shirt as issued to British Forces, perfect for field use as designed and also as the base layer when wearing any body armour, please note the colour of the wicking layer cannot be guarenteed as we get alot of mixed stock, it will either be olive green or MTP colour.
Part of the PCS Clothing system also known as Personal Clothing System.
It should be noted that the wicking base as described is basically the same fabric as on the issued PCS OG t-shirts which are bretheable and not cotten, these can also take MTP PCS patches.
PCS blanking patches which attach on the side can have relevant TRF attached or sewn on.
The under armour wicking layer has made this exceptionally comfortable to wear especially with the current CBA/Osprey body armour system and it’s always a good idea to have a few spares of these!
British Army MTP UBACS PCS Shirt Specifications
Fibres are not round, but are slightly oblong in cross-section with grooves running lengthwise along the threads.
The series of closely spaced channels creates capillary action that wicks moisture through the core and out to a wider area on the surface of the fabric which increases evaporation.
The fabrics employ specially-engineered polyester fibres to improve “breathability” compared to natural fibres like cotton.
‘Wick away’ or ‘wickaway’ is a general term used for fabrics that are engineered to draw moisture away from the skin through capillary action and increased evaporation over a wider surface area.
