Vertx®, a premier tactical and outdoor brand of apparel and gear, is pleased to announce the release of the Downrange Softshell Jacket. The jacket is truly unique to the industry based on its combination of features, construction and materials which make it ideal for the prepared professional. With its unique fabric construction and technology, the Downrange Softshell can be an asset in a variety of operational and training environments.
The Downrange Softshell is comprised of two components- a shell and a lining. The shell is 86% Polyester and 14% Spandex which serves as a barrier to the elements and allows freedom of movement. The lining is comprised of 66% Polyester and 34% 37.5® Polyester. This lining construction keeps the wearer warm and comfortable.
Specifically, the 37.5® Polyester, while breathable, absorbs the wearers infrared heat and stores it within the fabric. This helps maintain the wearer’s optimal core body temperature of 37.5°C allowing them to perform better, longer. The jacket will be offered in four colors: Burnt Ash, Slate Gray, Bering Blue and Shadow Gray.
“The Downrange Softshell is truly a unique product that we are excited to introduce to the market,” says Darrell Morrow, Vice President of Vertx. “At Vertx we have always been dedicated to creating apparel products built with and for the prepared professional- this jacket is a result of hours of talking with end users and a number of product development iterations. We feel that what we ended up with is an essential addition for anyone actively in a training environment or operational.”
In addition to the industry’s best fabrics, the jacket features a robust set of functional features. There are a total of 8 pockets built into the jacket: 2 zippered bicep pockets, 2 zippered front hand pockets, 2 external zippered chest pockets, 1 external left chest vertical zippered pocket and 1 internal left chest zippered pocket. Additionally, it features VELCRO cuff tabs, draw-cords within the front hand pockets, gusseted sides and is water repellant. The Downrange Softshell Jacket will have an MSRP of $179.95.
