VERTX SOLVES COMMON CONCEALED CARRY PROBLEM WITH NEW LINE OF INNOVATIVE SHIRTS

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

New WeaponGuard™ Feature Reduces Abrasion against the Skin

Cincinnati, Ohio – Vertx® announces the launch of its new line of shirts designed to comfortably carry concealed weapons and gear. The collection includes the new Guardian button-down style shirt and the Assessor polo. Both shirts are part of the Vertx® VaporCore™ line, which includes garments powered by 37.5® Technology woven into their fabric, assisting to regulate the body’s core temperature. The WeaponGuard™ feature protects wearers from skin irritation caused by carrying concealed weapons without an undershirt.

“Abrasion to the skin is a real problem for concealed carriers and wearing additional layers is not always an option,” said Justin Roberts, Vertx Brand Manager. “Our line of WeaponGuard™ shirts was designed in collaboration with end-users to develop a solution to this common challenge.”

Guardian Shirt – The Guardian shirt features a semi-compression WeaponGuard™ layer that begins at the lower chest and continues to the waist. This under layer is designed to comfortably guard the skin from chafing caused by concealed weapons, without having to don additional layers. The Guardian shirt has a button-front, pullover design for effortless donning, which includes snap button closures at the bottom of the garment that provides easy access to concealed weapons. Hidden body-side front plackets provide the wearer additional on-body space for weights or loading essential escape and evasion tools. The Guardian shirt is available in two solid colors and two modern plaid patterns in both long and short sleeve.

Assessor Polo – The Assessor polo features a traditional polo design with an athletic fit. The polo also has a semi-compression under layer that is designed to remain tucked into the pant, protecting the wearer from skin irritation caused by concealed carry. The short-sleeve Assessor polo is available in three heathered colorways.

Both garments feature a WeaponGuard™ under layer that is constructed with VaporCore™, powered by 37.5® Technology, which responds to the wearer’s body heat to regulate relative humidity and core temperature within their microclimate. This interaction keeps the body at its ideal performance levels of 37.5˚C and 37.5% humidity. Each shirt features underarm gussets for freedom of movement and were specially designed for ease of clearing and drawing concealed firearms.

Both garments are now in stock and are available for purchase. For information regarding the Guardian shirt and Assessor polo, visit Vertx.com.

Perseverance Survival – Pancho Liner Hoodie

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

The ‘liner, wet weather, poncho’, affectionately known to many as the Woobie, is one of the greatest and most beloved military-issued goods of all time. Perseverance Survival has taken the classic Woobie, and fashioned it into a hoodie. As the hoodies are made of re-purposed pancho liners, logic would dictate they’re made of a 100% nylon exterior with a 100% polyester filling. The hoodie also features a draw cord, and a standard kangaroo pocket.

Columbia X Star Wars ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ Collection

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

This isn’t the first time Columbia partnered up with Disney to produce a line of Star Wars-inspired garb, but with a new Star Wars movie out later this month, and it being Winter and all, the timing is appropriate.

This time, the three pieces – Luke Skywalker Echo Base Jacket, Han Solo Echo Base Parka, and Leia Organa Echo Base Jacket, are even closer to their film counterparts than the previous Rogue One collection, which were jackets more clearly “inspired” by the film than modeled after costumes within the film. You could almost pass these off as cosplay-grade apparel; overt Columbia branding aside.

Like the last collection, these jackets are limited, and expensive, and will surely sell out shortly after they go live, because Star Wars.

At the time of writing, there’s roughly 48 hours before they go for sale on Columbia’s website, so eyeball that clock closely if you want one of these for yourself:

I Kilt You Not: 5.11’s Popular Tactical Kilt is Back

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

With the wrong clothes, a day at the range can be a real pain in the butt (pun intended). And if you’ve ever worn jeans while practicing, you know that mobility and flexibility goes out the door. Fear not! 5.11 has created the perfect piece of apparel to take your training to the next level—the Tactical Duty Kilt. Back by popular demand, 5.11 has reintroduced its rugged, manly, limited edition Tactical Duty Kilt.

Designed to meet the demanding needs of fitness, shooting, and outdoor enthusiasts across the nation, 5.11 also released a new video to reveal to you the ins and outs of the popular kilt.

Featuring CrossFit Athlete, Josh Bridges, this funny (really, it’s funny) video shows Josh (along with a few other manly men) put the 5.11 kilt to the test. And no, this is not an April Fools’ joke. The once fictitious Kilt (oddly enough, it started as an April Fools’ joke in 2012) is again available for purchase in the U.S. while supplies last.

A portion of the proceeds of every
kilt sold will benefit the FBINAA.

Vollebak – Blood, Salt & Dirt Camo Range

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

blood salt and dirt

Vollebak’s Blood, Salt & Dirt camo range is “clothing that’s pre-camouflaged for abuse.” Made of a high-stretch 22% elastane / 78% polyamide blend, the three shirts in the range are lightweight, breathable, and highly moisture wicking, and are designed to camouflage blood stains, sweat and salt, and dirt, respectively.

It seems as if the intent behind these clothes is to mask dirt, grime, and wear during strenuous physical and activity, but it comes across as the shirt equivalent of a battleworn/distressed finish on a new or barely-used firearm.

Mondo – A Stanley Kubrick Production T-Shirt

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Kubrick-1_1024x1024

The shirt itself is pretty simple: it’s a blue cotton tee with ‘A Stanley Kubrick Production’ printed on the front. This particular bit of minimalist fashion was developed by Mondo in association with Alamo Drafthouse and Warner Bros., in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of author Anthony Burgess and the original release date the ‘A Clockwork Orange’, the film based on the Burgess’ same titled book; in-arguably his most popular publication, and arguably Kubrick’s finest film.

To further tie in the shirt to the film, the print mimics the design and font of the same text as seen in the ‘A Clockwork Orange’ opening credits.

Columbia – Star Wars Rogue One Apparel

Monday, December 5th, 2016

untitled

Columbia and Disney have partnered up to produce a line of officially licensed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story apparel. The three pieces, Women’s Jyn Erso Rebel Jacket, Men’s Captain Cassian Andor Rebel Parka, and Men’s Imperial Death Trooper Jacket, will be officially available starting 12/9/16 at select Columbia store locations, as well as for online purchase.

In my opinion, the Jyn Erso jacket is actually the coolest looking piece of the three. It actually looks like authentic Star Wars garb. The Death Trooper jacket is pretty overt in its design, but looks like a decent outer layer, even though you might have to be a pretty big Star Wars fan to wear it on the regular. As for the parka? Well, it really reminds me of the Hoth parka from Empire, which makes it pretty neat.
