ADS Federal Range Day – Vertx 37.5 Combat Shirt

Monday, June 15th, 2015

Keeping in line with an LE focus, we bring you the new Vertx 37.5 Combat Shirt.  


Incorporating 37.5 fabric (formerly known as Cocona), the new 37.5 Combat Shirt is built for comfort. The material is inherently breathable, quick drying and cools quickly due to its wicking properties in high relative humidity.

They also engineered the fabric to mitigate picking, where threads often poke out of the garment, particularly when rubbed by Velcro. They’ve woven an extra line in the fabric’s grid that is easily pulled back into place in the event of a pick.

Other comfort features include running the 37.5 material up into the armpits as well as padded micro side in the neck. Additionally, the neck placket was widened as the zipper is meant to be worn half down, as a convertible collar.

In addition to a two-pen slot on the left forearm, the Combat Shirt’s sleeve pockets also have pen pockets, but inside the outer flap of the pocket. Naturally, the shirt also features reinforced elbows and the sleeve width is the same from the elbow down to the end of the sleeve so it can be easily rolled up.

Available in Green, Black, Desert Tan and Smoke Grey. Coming soon, Kryptek
Highlander and Typhon.

Solid Color Vertx Smocks On Sale

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

I was wearing my Vertx Smock the other day during a visit to Academi and someone asked me who made it. When I said it was a Vertx smock, he was was surprised and didn’t realize how nice it was. Now, I find out they are on sale. I highly recommend this jacket. Even though it has been out for several years, the design remains excellent and is unlike any other smock on the market.
