From law enforcement to airsoft and everything in between, doing anything tactical requires physical activity. As of late, many have been using compression undergarments to help them get the most out of their physical activity. The assisted muscle contraction and increased blood flow from compression helps reduce fatigue, which makes for a very useful garment. ISPro Tactical taps into this with their tactical compression shirts.


The shirt I tried on fit snugly, and I could feel the compression most around my waist and lower back. It had an immediate effect on my posture; whenever I found myself slouching, I could feel the correction from the garment. The fabric feels like nylon or polyester, but is much less itchy than either. The garment was very stretchy, tight and smooth against skin, as is expected for a compression garment. The shirts were engineered to be resistant to odor and bacteria, so they withstand even your customers’ most strenuous exercises.

There is also an aesthetic benefit to the compression. I had my measurements recorded before and after I put the shirt on. The results showed that the shirt reduced my chest measurement by 3 inches, and took an additional 4 inches off of my waist. I actually needed to use an extra notch on my belt because my pants were fitting looser. This can make for a more flattering or imposing look, which would have your customers feeling more confident when they look at themselves in a mirror.


What separates the ISPro compression shirt from its competition is the gun holster added specifically for concealed carry. There is a pocket just under the armpits with a reinforced strap just for holstering a handgun. The pockets are on both sides to accommodate both right- and left-handed shooters or gun owners who want to conceal two guns. The extra strap is there to help keep the gun in place.

When using a compression shirt of this kind, it is important to follow the care instructions carefully to get the most from your wearing experience. Be sure to wear it under your underwear to prevent the shirt from riding up your back.


If your tactical customers are in the market for figure-slimming compression gear, or are just looking for a nifty new way to carry their handguns, then the ISPro Tactical compression shirt is the product they should be considering.
