New Versions of Concealed Carry & Rifle Bags from Vertx

    Vertx announced the company is now offering three of its popular bags in new colors. Specifically, the Gamut is now available in Loden Green, the Essential is now offered in Greener Pastures and the Professional Rifle Garment Bag can be had in Bracken Brown. The images in this article show what these colors look like.


    This is a backpack style bag that has a large concealment space that can accommodate a full size handgun. One of the things I like about the Vertx pack is that it does not have a “tactical” appearance with PALS webbing all over it. Another thing I like is that it has a generous storage space for a laptop in addition to other pockets and storage locations for all sorts of other things.


    Vertx Essentials

    The Essential is an EDC style bag for carrying everything from your wallet to your IFAK. It is large enough to fit a tablet and has a rapid access area for a pistol. The bag retails for $109.95.

    Professional Rifle Garment Bag


    The Professional Rifle Garment Bag is a soft-sided piece of luggage that serves as a traditional garment bag with the added feature of storing a rifle that is up to 28″ in overall length. When carried on a shoulder, the weapon is accessible via a zippered compartment for rapid deployment. The video below shows some of the details of the bag.

    More information on this bag can be found in Nicholas C’s article from the 2016 SHOT Show.
