What is Overlanding?
There are quite a few opinions of what overlanding is. It can range from the very specific to the very broad approach to utilizing your vehicle for different adventures. We will point you in the way of our friends and partners at Expedition Overland to understand what they consider overlanding for a full breakdown!
How Does Vertx Fit in Overlanding?
This is the reason you have come to our site and what we are excited to help guide you through! Simply put, we are here to provide as much function when it comes to clothing, apparel and gear as possible to your overlanding adventures. A huge part of overlanding is finding practical, functional use of space and storage so that you can maximize your productivity for your adventure. That’s our wheelhouse! Our goal is and has always been to allow you to be prepared for whatever is ahead of you, so you can function in a time of need. For overlanding, this includes vehicle storage, durable clothing, outerwear to keep you warm and dry, bags to keep you organized in and out of your vehicle, and accessories that give you quick access to the gear you need when you need it!
What Products Are Ideal for Overlanding?
Vertx pants are built with function and durability at the core. Being able to organize your gear that you need on you, in a practical and efficient way is key to your success on an adventure. Our pants include core DNA in their features that allow you to be as prepared as possible, while maintaining your comfort.
Stretch – Who doesn’t love a pair of pants that move with you?! Not only do we include fabrics that stretch, but the construction of our pants also provides added mobility so you can climb, jump, run, crouch, or move to any position without the worry of your pants splitting or not working with you!
Organization & Storage – having key pieces of gear on you while overlanding is crucial. Having things like a torniquet, flashlight, knife, credentials, communication devices, etc. can be a task for a standard pair of pants. Not for Vertx pants! All our pants have plenty of pockets and features to allow you to maximize your on-body kit, while maintain comfort.
- Front mesh pockets with lanyard tie downs keep you cool and your keys secure.
- Rear yoke pockets are amazing for phone, spare magazine, tourniquet, or flashlight storage without weighing your pants down.
- Back pocket credential flaps keep your key documents or wallet secure while you’re on the go!
- Under beltloop passthroughs allow you to run communication devices without tangling cords.
Durability – Our pants are built to last! The craftsmanship and materials used in our pants are tested to stand the harshest conditions. We stand behind all our product and if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, we will be happy to accept an exchange or a return for a full refund within 60 days of purchase.
Vertx outwear is built to allow you to stay comfortable and maximize your function while in the elements. We know that weather doesn’t always cooperate, but that doesn’t mean that your adventure stops, so we are here to allow you to continue your adventure while maintaining your maximum effectiveness and efficiency.
37.5® Technology - Our partnership with 37.5® Active Particle Technology started 10 years ago with our Integrity Shell Jacket and now encompasses a full line of shirts, pants, and accessories. In any condition, 37.5® fabrics are working with your natural microclimate to keep you performing at your peak, longer. By capturing your natural infrared (IR) energy, 37.5® can evaporate moisture to keep you cool or reflect it back to you to keep you warm so, you can stay comfortable no matter the weather or activity.
Keeping your Dry and Warm - We know cold, wet weather is part of life, but that doesn’t mean that you want to be cold and wet. Our Integrity Collection provides the versatility via layering system to keep you at your ideal temperature, but also keeping you dry with our waterproof shells. The Integrity Collection gives you the options you want and need to meet your needs in nature.
Functionality - We know functionality is the key to a successful overlanding adventure. Our outerwear includes features like front pass-through pockets to access your gear at your waist, Weaponguard™ technology which gives you extra protection for gear worn on your waist, and tons of pockets so you can keep your gear dry along with you.

Socks are often the most overlooked piece of apparel, but often the one that can mean the most. No one likes cold, wet feet. Wet feet can lead to blisters and sores, which is bad for your health and ability to get the job done.
