LBX Combat Shirt vs. 5.11 Rapid Assault Shirt

I've been looking for a combat shirt that comes in a grey color. The two combat shirts that have stuck out to me are the LBX Combat Shirts in Glacier Grey and the 5.11 Tactical Rapid Assault Shirts in Storm.

Does anyone have experience with either shirt? It doesn't have to be the shirts in grey exactly; it could be that build of shirt in general. I'm looking for a few things:
-Breathability
-How it handles in hot weather (Summer)
-How it handles in cool weather (Fall)
-Weight/thickness of fabric
-How does it fit? (run long, run short, etc)
-Durability

Any personal experience is appreciated. I've already been through youtube and seen the videos, but I want a no-s**t assessment of the shirts.

Thanks!

The 5.11 shirt has spandex in the fabric, so that would give it superior moisture wicking properties. That said I don't have direct experience with either shirt

I thought Colion Noir had posted a You Tube review of the Rapid Assault Shirt, but I can't find it. I know some of his newer videos he is wearing one, so maybe you can drool over them while enjoying gun pron...
