Gear and apparel maker, Vertx, has launched four new styles of tactical gloves designed for tactical professionals.
The new gloves include the VaperCore Shooter, Rapid LT, FR Assaulter and FR Breacher models. Each of the variants boast articulated pre-curved fingers allowing for dexterity and comfort while strong hook and loop wrist closures keep the glove secure and in place. The gloves feature a double needle top-stitch reinforcement around key areas that Vertx says maximizes life span.
Utilizing natural goatskin suede, the gloves aim to give shooters a better sense of touch while wearing. In addition, the middle finger and thumb tout conductive touchpoints so users can still use electronic and touchscreen devices such as smartphones and tablets.
“With more than 175 years of experience in the military and tactical world, we combined expertise and research to develop a new line of gloves that would meet our standard of quality, provide superior functionality and address some of the top needs expressed by today’s customer base,” Justin Roberts, Vertx Brand Manager, said in a press release.
Though the gloves share some features in common, there are attributes that set them apart from each other. The VaporCore Shooter is engineered with active particles embedded in the fabric for a quick dry time, five times faster than regular gloves, that keeps hands cooler during use.
The Rapid LT serves up a lightweight style, matching suede with a two-way fabric crafted to offer free range of motion while preserving color fastness. The FR Assaulter and FR Breacher are flame resistant with Kevlar thread knitted throughout the gloves. The FR Breacher kicks it up a notch with knuckle protection.
Prices start at $52 with prices varying depending on model.
