Vertx Tactical Tips: New Gear for the Weather

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. From the athletic fit to the cutout for a watch, we can see the evolution of clothing taking place in real-time.

    Ridiculous pocket feature that will potentially get you killed when you try to draw your pistol like Captain Covert and it snags. Just lift the jacket and draw, for fuck’s sake.

    Only thing this might be practical for is covert masturbation.
