Concealment on the Go : Vertx Go Pack

Made of 210D Nylon Ripstop with a PU wipe-clean coating the Go Pack is light and comfortable with adjustable airmesh straps in all the right places. It's also compatible with the SOCP panel, tactigami, and other hook & loop constructions. See below for more details from Vertx.

Bandolier Versatility: Vertx Firebase

Perfect partnerships are tough to find, but the way the Vertx Firebase Bandolier matches up with the Go Pack shows that the folks over at Vertx put some serious thought into this design. Available in either PCC or M4 the Firebase Bandolier is a versatile tool for multiple discrete carry options. It can be worn under either the right or left arm like a shoulder holster, across the body diagonally like a bandolier, up front attached to your plate carrier, or deployed in your Go Pack via the hook side below the exterior panel.
