Wellenbrecher 'Wave Breaker' Field Shirt

Well·en·brech·er from the German wellen “wave” and brecher “breaker.”

Each Wellenbrecher starts life as a German desert camouflage field shirt. Similar in cut and overall design to their Flecktarn cousins, these Tropentarn shirts incorporate large armpit vents, and a lightweight, three-color fabric.

Wellenbrecher's unique coloration results from a special dying process applied to each Tropentarn donor shirt. Unlike standard "over-dying," we use a reactive dye which only binds to cotton fibers. This leaves all nylon undyed from the arm vents and hook/loop to the nylon fibers in the body of the shirt itself.

Wellenbrecher's slightly iridescent blue-gray appearance is color fast and will not leach or fade. Post dying, your shirt is clear of residual chemicals and clean enough to put in a baby's mouth.

This field shirt can be worn in two different configurations. For a standard "shirt" cut, we suggest ordering your Gr. size as shown in the sizing chart. For a "jacket"-like fit, go up one height bracket in the sizing chart while keeping your chest size true to measurement.

Specs

  • Wellenbrecher Wave 2 mission patch
  • Tough poly/cotton water-resistant fabric
  • Snap-secured storm flap
  • Two snap-secured front breast pockets
  • Straps for shoulder marks, rank tabs, etc.
  • Mesh-ventilated armpits
  • Shoulder pocket on left arm
  • Velcro® wrist fasteners
  • Velcro® fastener on right arm
  • Velcro® fastener above left front pocket for name tape

Color Bias

The color of the tan in the Tropentarn affects the dye result. Not all Tropentarn jackets are the same. There is roughly a 10% difference in color ranging from light khaki to a more yellow sand. This base color effects the Wellenbrecher dye result. You can compare the photos below to get an idea of what to expect. We can make no promises as to the hue you will receive.

Condition

We have sorted all our donor jackets carefully. Expect a clean, quality product with no damage.

WellenBrecher

The WellenBrecher field shirt is just like all other desert "Tropentarn" field shirts except for one little detail. The color. This may seem like a small thing that most people would scoff at, but I assure you, this is not something to write off as a gimmick. The dyes only bind to specific colors in the camo, effectively creating a unique variation. This would be uninteresting if printed on some sweatshop made t-shirt or just a reproduction, but the field shirts are all genuine German made military-issued garments. You get all the benefits of a quality made hot weather field shirt and all the aesthetics you could ever want in a crowd of unenlightened.

Attractive and comfortable

Great looking pattern. No discolorations or damage. Three pockets, two on the breast and one on the left arm. I like the velcro on the cuffs, to shorten or tighten the sleeves. Storage smell went away with the first wash. Fits a little loose, which is my preference. 10/10 overall

Ride the Wave

While the original top I recieved was too small, the second one recieved was just right, and the color was everything I hoped it would be. I recommend this to anyone who loves to have unicorn camo patterns hidden away in their stash.
