This may or may not qualify as a traditional women’s tactical shirt, but that’s how it’s labeled and who are we to argue? In any case, the term Self Rescuing Princess, matched with a properly pretty-lady-regal ballistic helmet on the front is plenty tactical for us. This shirt, the Southernly Zen Tactical Princess shirt, is for those badass lady types who prefer a ballistic helmet and NVGs to a crown and glass slippers.
Would Cara Dune, Evelyn Salt, Andromache of Scythia, Sarah Connor, or Ms. Perkins wear a tactical princess shirt? What about Ani Bezzerides or Jenette Vasquez? We have no idea. We’d like to think so, and we’re certain they’d approve of the concept, but they might want one of the other variants (see below)/

• Self-Rescuing Princess, Tactical Princess Shirt

This is the first shirt style with this design put out by Southernly Zen. It has a fully-equipped helmet (hard to tell if it’s Kevlar or bump), a tiara atop that, and a rifle ready to snatch up and roll out.
It’s printed on a Bella Canvas 6400 Women’s Jersey Short Sleeve. If we’re deciphering social posts correctly, additional styles (athletic cut, moisture-wicking, and maybe hoodies) will be available soon. The different types of “lifestyle” shots we’re seeing are apparently just to gauge interest.
Features: Sideseamed. Slim fit. Shoulder taping. Longer body length.
