A Tactical Shirt for Self-Rescuing Princesses and Badass Women

A Tactical Shirt for Self-Rescuing Princesses and Badass Women

First of all, no. This shirt is not yet available in Flat Dark Earth, but we’ve inquired about it. It is available in several other color ways, which despite the women’s tactical shirt description aren’t particularly tactical. It’s the design on the shirt that’s tactical. It’s the Tactical Self-Rescuing Princess shirt from Southernly Zen.

It’s described as a shirt for those badass lady types who prefer a ballistic brain bucket with NVGs and earpro to a crown and glass slippers. We think it’s a reasonable description.



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 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, No Knights Needed

Self-Rescuing Princess, Cowgirl 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.

This is how apparel manufacturer Bella Canvas describes the garment:

“Her go-to tee fits like a well-loved favorite, featuring a slim feminine fit, crew neck, short sleeves, and superior combed and ring-spun cotton that acts as the best blank canvas for printing. Offered in a variety of solid and heather CVC colors.”

  • • 100% combed and ring-spun cotton
  • • Athletic heather is 90% cotton, 10% polyester
  • • Other heather colors are 52% cotton, 48% polyester
  • • Fabric weight: 4.2 oz/y² (142 g/m²)
Confidence and the ability to take no shit are the hallmark of a squared away self-rescuing princess, regardless of profession, age, or rank.

There are many princesses and undistressed damsels who require neither a knight nor a prince to rescue them. They do their own work.
