Vertx Tactical Tip: Why You Need Good Gloves

Just like guns, your hands and feet are happiest when they’re warm and dry. Unlike guns, many of us forget about the gear needed to protect them. Thankfully, Vertx has some new products that provide easy solutions to this regardless of one’s environment or mission. Vertx tactical gloves are made from poly-wool and genuine Goatskin suede leather, and all four of the new models are compatible with smartphone touchscreens. Gloves such as the Vertx Crisp Action have features that make them ideal for cold weather, while other like the Move To Contact were built to provide maximum protection. Vertx hasn’t forgotten about feet either, now offering two different models of their VaporCore crew sock. Also made of a poly-wool blend, these socks wick away moisture while trapping warm air, helping to keep you on your feet when you need it the most.

Nothing protects better than D3O® – which offers the thinnest and most advanced protection against impact. 

D3O® materials are made using a combination of advanced polymer chemistry and cutting-edge design. The materials are soft and flexible, with no compromise on comfort, but react differently when force is applied.

D3O® absorbs and dissipates energy during an impact, reducing the amount of force transmitted to your body compared to standard foams.
