What do you get the well armed traveler who seemingly has everything?

Vertx showed us several noteworthy products at SHOT Show 2016. One of the items that specifically covers a narrow but important niche for armed travelers is the Vertx Rifle Garment Bag. From the outside this thing appears to be an average garment bag, but inside it addresses all the needs of an armed professional by providing a means of carrying a small to midsized carbine and accessories covertly.

Vertx Rifle Garment Bag allows for modularity using Velcro in portions of the interior.

The bag can conceal rifles up to 28” long effectively. The back panel of the bag is compatible with Vertx’s full line of Velcro attachable pouches. It measures out at 29 in. L x 15 in. H x 5 in. W with a weight of 5 lbs. 2 oz. The bag can always be used as a traditional garment bag of course; weapons are optional.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.
Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
