Fighter Design Featherlight Rifle Sling

The Fighter Design Featherlight Rifle Sling looks like a typical padded sling at first glance but they have managed to tuck something pretty innovative into the pad. The sling is an adjustable 2 point design with side release buckles at each end of the pad.

This sling weighs less than 100 grams which is incredible for a padded 2 point sling. The exterior of the pad is made from lightweight rip-stop material that is durable but keeps weight to a minimum. The real weight saver can be found inside the pad. While most slings use foam, the Featherlight Rifle Sling uses expanded spacer mesh (often found on backpack back panels). That is very clever.

Check out the Fighter Design Featherlight Rifle Sling. They also have some cosmetic seconds for sale at just $10 a piece and their USPS First Class shipping is very cheap.

Vertx Airflow Phantom Ops Pant at PredatorBDU

Vertx Fighter Design

PredatorBDU just released one of the first detailed videos about the new Vertx Airflow Phantom Ops Pant. The licensing of Fighter Design’s Airflow tech by Vertx was some of the most exciting news leading into the SHOT Show and they didn’t disappoint at the show. Every report that I have heard has been very positive regarding the way air moves through these pants.

The Vertx Airflow Phantom Ops Pant is available for pre-order at PredatorBDU.

Vertx Apparel Signs Design Agreement with Fighter Design

Jesse at PredatorBDU first turned me on to the Fighter Design’s innovative offerings. It is no surprise to see them teaming up with other innovators like Vertx.

From Vertx:

Vertx Apparel Signs Design Agreement with Fighter Design

Vertx Apparel, the tactical brand and innovation design arm of Fechheimer Brothers, is proud to announce they have signed a licensing agreement with Fighter Design of Austin, TX. This new partnership will allow Vertx to incorporate Fighter Design’s proprietary Airflow Technology into new models of the world’s best tactical pant.

“Fighter Design’s ‘Airflow Tech’ has been on my radar for a while now,” says Vertx Director of Sales Darrell Morrow. “As an apparel feature there’s nothing else like it. It’s proven to keep you cool. Adding it as a feature option to Vertx tactical pants is frankly just an awesome evolution.”

Fighter Design’s Airflow Technology has already garnered well-deserved attention for shooters, athletes and operators who must work in high temperatures. It’s an aggressive, well designed system that utilizes extremely tough mesh material in strategic locations like the inseam of the pant legs and cargo pocket interiors to create a cooling flow of air into the pants.

“We’re very excited to be working with Vertx on this,” says Fighter Design’s Adam Slank. “They’re an amazing company and we’re all big fans of the Vertx brand. Of all the brands in the market, we really wanted to work with Vertx. People just need to try the new pants in order to feel the airflow for themselves. Some things need to be experienced.”

Though the partnership is a young one, an initial project will be debuted at the NSSF SHOT Show, Booth #126. This will take the form of a limited run of ‘Phantom Ops Powered by Airflow.’ Note that a small number of these pants will be available for preorder at the Vertx booth and on line—and doing so may very well guarantee participation in some otherwise invite-only after-business-hours Vertx SHOT Show events.
