First Look: Vertx Introduces Four New Tactical Glove Styles

posted on February 6, 2021

Vertx is known for making high-quality, low-profile tactical apparel and accessories, and now they are launching the next generation of gloves in four distinct styles: Assault 2.0, Course of Fire, Crisp Action, and Move to Contact. Each glove is built to handle the unique needs of any covert or overt mission, and each style comes in three colors: Black, Ranger Green, and Urban Grey.

“Gloves are an important part of our customer’s kit,” said Denny Bogard, GM/VP of Vertx. “The styles in our new line are designed for specific conditions the everyday operator faces, whether that’s range practice, breaching, or running a mission in inclement weather.”

The gloves fulfill different tasks for both professional first responders and armed citizens.  The Assault 2.0 glove features 37.5 Active Particle Technology and light padding, making it an excellent all-purpose glove. The 37.5 Technology merino wool on the back of the works with the wearer’s natural body functions to regulate temperature and manage moisture, leaving the skin sweat-free and cool for better performance.

The Vertx Course of Fire glove is designed to provide the best grip while minimizing bulk. The glove’s low-profile wrist and curved closure allow for unobstructed articulation and precise movement while keeping out debris. The Course of Fire is constructed using Pittards Oiltac goatskin leather on the palm that has a grip that increases when wet. The grip is resistant to repeated washing and the wear and tear of the even the most extreme weather or conditions.

The Crisp Action Glove is constructed to provide extra cover from the elements without sacrificing dexterity and grip. The glove’s weather-resistant body, tricot liner, and extended cuff guard against wind and rain, while the built-in leather slide guard and middle finger knuckle guard ensure high pressure areas are protected from wear and abrasion while using a firearm.

Finally, The Move to Contact glove is assembled with flexible D3O padding for jobs where the hands require additional abrasion protection. The gloves are designed to provide impact protection without sacrificing mobility, and their streamlined wrist and curved closure allow for unobstructed articulation and precise movement while keeping out debris.

MSRP for these new gloves varies from $45.99 to $64.90. To learn more about rest of the Vertx line of tactical apparel and accessories, please visit
