What happens when you take the top outdoor clothing manufacture (who also is the primary contractor for MARCORSYSCOM and their special operations clothing program), introduce them to the company that provides the Marine Corps' dress uniforms, and then let them spend countless hours testing and getting feedback from DEA, FBI, and CIA agents in the field? You get Vertx "For the Operational Athlete".
Vertx is a collaborative effort between Arc'Teryx (provider of USMC tactical outerwear and main pack), Fecheimer/Flying Cross (provider of USMC dress uniforms), and federal covert agents.
I found them when I was looking to replace a pair of my Arc'Teryx "Candidate" pants that had been designed for a federal agency's training academy. I liked the look of the pants and decided to track down a dealer. I fully intended to try them on and then go buy them from the cheapest online dealer I could find. Instead, once I got them on in the store, I had to wear them home the same night. They fit that well. Bonus is they aren't just offered in Sm-Med-Lg-XL, but they come in full-spec sizing, including odd-numbered waists up to 36" and even sizes thereafter.
The design is from Arc'Teryx and the manufacturing and supply is sourced from Fecheimer. If your local cop-shop sells Flying Cross uniforms, they should be able to carry Vertx. Of course, the selling point for them is that the design doesn't advertise itself as "tacticool" with bulging pockets, loops and D-rings, but the functionality is all built in. The pockets lay flat and present a clean look appropriate for the office. The REALLY cool thing about Vertx is that they are a huge supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project which benefits injured service members.
So, here's hoping a bunch of you will check out their site and help a new line be successful.
