THE VERTX HERITAGE


The Vertx story started when a top federal agency directly requested a more functional, comfortable and versatile low profile tactical pant. Leveraging over 175 years of experience, the Fechheimer Brothers Company worked side-by-side with operators to develop the industry’s first tactical pant that combined superior functionality with a low visual profile.

After an incredible reception by the industry, Vertx continued to utilize world-class designers to develop low profile apparel, tactical garments and low profile concealed carry bags and packs. Today, Vertx is trusted by the nation’s top operators and prepared professionals for our innovative designs, functionality, fit and versatility.

As we look to the future, we stand ready to work side-by-side with todays prepared professionals to continue to design, develop and offer the best and most innovative products possible.
