Gear Vertx Tactical Tips: New Gear for the Weather Recoil Staff November 15, 2021 1 Comments, Join the Conversation The ideal rain jacket attempts the impossible: to be as watertight as a plastic bag, while as breathable as cotton. Beyond that, the quality of outerwear is often measured by its ability to layer with other articles of clothing, equipping the wearer with a greater level of adaptability to their environment. Now available in a women's model, the Vertx Fury Hardshell sheds water, while balancing both heat and moisture, creating a micro-climate around the wearer. Coming in hot, the Vertx Firebase hoodie is what we might call a tech-hoodie, featuring a series of small but important improvements on the classic garment.
