Product Comparison: FRS003 vs. FRS159

Carhartt has recently decided to replace their FRS159 Flame Resistant Shirt with the FRS003 Work-Dry Shirt. Although the shirts are similar in appearance, there are a few differences between these products. One such example is that the FRS003 is offered in two new colors: Royal Blue and Gray. In addition to the addedl colors, the FRS003 also features Carhartt's Work-Dry technology.
The FRS003 is Carhartt's newer design for a flame resistant shirt. This shirt features Carhartt's Work-Dry material which wicks away moisture and controls odor.
This design is also cheaper than its predecessor, costing $59.00.

Carhartt's FRS159 is an older flame resistant shirt which the FRS003 is intended to replace. Because the shirt is being replaced, some of the color/size options are limited. However, you can still purchase this product on our website for $66.00.

One of the reviews for this product does mention that the sizing does run on the large side. Remember to take that into account when ordering.
