Almost exactly three years later to the day that I posted my initial preview of the VERTX Tactical pant back on 3/21/09, I had a motorcycle accident while wearing my OD Green pair of VERTX pants. I mentioned this on my Facebook page; VERTX saw it, and generously offered to replace my damaged pair of pants. I thought it’d be a good opportunity to see if any changes had been made over the past three years.
The Vickers Tactical Base Plate from TangoDown is a direct replacement for the stock Glock base pad. The VT Base Plate allows a tight or stuck magazine to be more easily stripped from the magazine well.
The L5 soft shell jacket and pants from the Russian company Group99 are 3-season, lightweight garments intended for mid to high levels of physical exertion. They’re water resistant, wind proof, and quick drying.
INFORCE granted us our wishes! Shown here is the WML in Sand, but instead of the standard multi-mode rubber switch, this one has been programmed as momentary-only; exactly what I was hoping for.
The Atom LT Pant from the LEAF (Law Enforcement and Armed Forces) division of Arc’Teryx is the companion pant to the Atom LT Jacket. It’s an insulated, light weight, water and wind-resistant pant that’s ideal as an over-layer for colder conditions and low activity.
