Gear Vertx Jackets and Hoodies – Tactical Tips Recoil Staff October 29, 2021 Join the Conversation As the weather rotates cooler, Vertx has released a new series of men's and women's outerwear. In keeping with their style and direction, each model is tailored towards the needs of those who carry, whether for protection or by profession. New to this year, two women's jackets, and three mens/unisex hoodies bring deliberate design choices and curated materials to the table. For the women's jackets, the Fury Hardshell is built out of a fabric that regulates both moisture and temperature. The Trailhawk combines a classic motorcycle jacket styling with utility pockets and a waxed canvas construction. Each hoody addresses a different style and function, from casual wear to a more technical garment.
