Vertx, a leading manufacturer of low-profile tactical apparel and accessories, recently announced the launch of the Paratus Hoody. From a mountain trail to trailing a person of interest, the Paratus blends into its surroundings as well as it mirrors the wearer’s movements and activity level.

Whether it’s deployed as outerwear or under a shell jacket, the Paratus can be worn almost year-round and is indispensable for changing up appearance and silhouette. Available in three subdued colorways—blue surge, canopy green, and tarmac—the Paratus is now available online at vertx.com and in-store. Customers can find their nearest dealer using the Vertx store locator.

“We are always striving to continue to add new and innovative pieces to our lines,” said Denny Bogard, GM/VP of Vertx. “The Paratus does just that. On the surface it fits the bill of your classic pullover hoodie, but underneath it’s built with the features our end-user needs to carry comfortably whether it’s for work or everyday.”

Designed, cut, and constructed for comfort with a regular fit that’s ready for active environments, the Paratus is resistant to wear to ensure long-term service without acquiring a ragged appearance. The internal Abrasion Guard lining protects the fleece shell from friction and snags and reduces printing from CCW and EDC gear.

The hoody’s drop-back hem assures belt and lower back coverage during strenuous activities and its classic pullover design virtually eliminates drafts and provides added warmth whether it’s worn as the inner or outer layer. The large front kangaroo pocket is handy for keeping essentials at the ready. It also conceals a hidden zippered pass-through that provides discreet and quick access to critical gear located on the belt or mounted inside the waistband. The three-piece fitted hood has flatlock seams for maximum comfort and can be adjusted for the weather or to enhance comms concealment with a drawcord.

MSRP for the Paratus Hoody starts at $84.99, and more information on this product and the rest of the Vertx line is available at vertx.com.
