VERTX INTRODUCES THE ULTIMATE PANT TO TAKE YOU AND YOUR EDC FROM THE DAY ON THE JOB TO A NIGHT ON THE TOWN

Cincinnati, Ohio – Vertx® announces the availability of the new men’s Delta 2.0 Pant, which is sure to become an instant favorite for those who need flexibility, comfort and good looks whether they are working an extended shift or spending some downtime with the family. The Prepared Professional™ can be confident in his choice of the new Delta 2.0 pants as he loads the 12 strategically-positioned and thoughtfully-designed pockets with the assorted tools and devices he’ll need for any variety of assignments. These twill pants feature the unrivaled maneuverability of four-way stretch construction, and they pair well with the full range of Vertx shirts for maximum functionality and minimum signature on the street.

“We’ve taken everybody’s favorite pant and made it better,” said Denny Bogard, GM/VP of Vertx.  “Now you have more storage than ever with 5 more hidden pockets in our Delta 2.0.  We’ve adjusted our fit to a more athletic modern cut to help you blend into your environment, while adding things like mesh pocket bags for increased air flow and breathability. If you like our original Delta Stretch pants, you’re going to love our new Delta 2.0,” said Bogard.

Critical features that any user will appreciate include the assortment of pockets designed to accommodate the gamut of gadgets and tools they deem necessary to have on hand. Two deep front pockets are constructed with breathable mesh and have an internal lanyard with keychain anchor points. Knife notches keep your blade out of the way but always at the ready. A zippered security pocket is easily accessible at the top of the front right pocket opening. Two tool pockets are located at the thigh, just left of the side seams and are ideal for lighting and writing implements. Pickpockets will be frustrated by the two deep rear pockets with unique wallet traps built in to ensure security of ID, passport and billfold. A pair of angled rear yoke pockets provide a snug and subtle location for smart phones, as well as back-up rifle mags. Judiciously-placed mini stash pockets are located on the inside for small items you may need to keep pre-loaded for emergencies. All 8 belt loops are fitted with a concealed DropLoop™ pass-through to allow discreet carry of flexible restraints or as reinforced attachment points for lanyards or other gear. 

The 9.2-ounce 98% cotton/ 2% Spandex twill is enzyme-washed for a relaxed feel and streetwise appearance from day one. All heavy-wear seams are double-stitched and the full gusseted crotch allows a wide range of movement.

The new Delta 2.0 Pant is available in three colors- Tobacco, Shock Cord, and Spine Grey- in a wide range of men’s sizes.

Boker Burnley Kihon Automatic Knives

If you like automatic knives, there is a good chance you are already familiar with the budget auto that everyone loves, the Boker Kalashnikov. The Kalashnikov is popular because of its mix of snappy action and quality, budget-minded materials.

Now Boker has applied that same formula to a new design, the Burnley Kihon Automatic. Like the Kalashnikov, the Kihon features a flat-ground, drop point, AUS-8 stainless steel blade (3.25″) and a textured aluminum handle. The pocket clip is configured for right-side, tip-up carry only.

The Kalashnikov is a budget knife classic and the formula has been followed so closely again with the Kihon that it is almost certainly going to be a hit. The Boker Kihon Automatic is available at BladeHQ.com.
