Available in two weights; a durable nylon cotton ripstop blend and the water-resistant Storm variant, incorporates technical materials and finishes critical for use in harsh weather conditions. Its simple, clean design and articulated shoulders and arm allow for full range of motion. Durable, yet lightweight and breathable, the shirt is ergonomically designed for any situation and does not compromise freedom of movement.
While both versions are currently offered in MultiCamÂ®, Vertx is developing Gunfighter models with solid color shells.
Like all Vertx products, the Gunfighter is designed for the operator who wants the combination of low visual profile and function of a battle garment. It was designed in cooperation with SWAT and military operators interested in a clean, functional approach to high incident tactical wear.
â€œThe Operational Athlete of today has to be highly adaptable, always prepared for a number of situations,â€ said Vertx President & CEO, Bob Getto. â€œWe work closely with law enforcement and military contacts to understand these unique needs and create wearable performance clothing that can match the versatility required for the job.â€
â€œVertx offers a modern take on the battle dress uniform,â€ said David Walsh, Brand Manager for Vertx. â€œA low profile, business casual appearance can be maintained without restricting any movement or comfort. This approach enables operators to perform at the highest level needed in an instant without calling direct attention to the individual wearing it.â€
â€œThe gunfighter shirt provides for such a great range of motion without the excess fabric and features associated with other tops that you donâ€™t even know that you are wearing it,â€ said a SWAT officer wear evaluator. â€œThe Shoulder pocket design is clean, you can slide your arm in and out of jackets or protective equipment and the pocket does not get snagged on the inside of the sleeve.â€
