This may or may not actually qualify as a traditional women’s tactical shirt, but that’s how it’s labeled, so that is how we shall report it! And in any case, the term Self Rescuing Princess with a ballistic helmet aboard is tactical enough for us. So, for those badass lady types who prefer a brain bucket with NVGs and earpro to a crown and glass slippers, welll here you go: Southernly Zen’s Tactical Self-Rescuing Princess.
Even if you’re not going full Ani Bezzerides or Jenette Vasquez while wearing it.
Would Cara Dune, Evelyn Salt, Andromache of Scythia, Sarah Connor, or Ms. Perkins wear a tactical princess shirt? We have no idea. We think so…but maybe they’d prefer the straight tiara-royalty or cowgirl version.
Self-Rescuing Princess Shirt Options
• Self Rescuing Princess, Tactical
• Self Rescuing Princess, Badass Women
• Self-Rescuing Princess, Cowgirl Equestrienne (PENDING)
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.
