The new Tactical Dress Uniform or TDU from 5.11 Tactical Series has been designed to replace Battle Dress Uniforms, or BDUs. 5.11 Tactical Series product developers utilized input from police and corrections officers to design the new TDU. The shirt features hidden document pockets on the front chest, triple stitching, and 28 bartacks for strength. A bi-swing shoulder allows for greater mobility and the sleeves feature removable neoprene elbow pads.
