We’ve been training with Matt Jacques of Victory First since before it was cool. We’ve been wearing Vertx since before it was cool (especially the airflows, which for the record are badass but not the appropriate trousers for Las Vegas in January). Our confidence in what he knows and how he imparts knowledge is a big reason why we asked Matt to start writing for us back in the day. Another is that at the time we only had one other shit-kicking knuckledragger in cowboy boots working for us, but that’s a story for another day. In any event, Vertx just announced they’ve solidified a partnership with Victory First to provide all their training — which is good news for anyone who wants to use good gear and learn how to fight from concealment.
You can read all about it below:
Vertx, a premier tactical and outdoor brand of apparel and gear, announced today its expanded partnership with Victory First, a leader in law enforcement, firearms training and consulting. The partnership will focus on utilization of Victory First’s expertise in tactics and training, while incorporating the Vertx line of concealed carry bags and packs for real world use. Additionally, Victory First will conduct training classes for Vertx, which will include relevant tactical applications.
“We’re excited to expand our business relationship with Matt Jacques and Victory First as a preferred training provider for Vertx’s EDC line of bags and packs,” says Darrell Morrow, Vice President of Vertx. “Matt brings a wealth of professional and industry knowledge that is essential for today’s prepared professional. His leadership through Victory First will help us ensure that all of our customers have access to the most relevant, useful training that complements the Vertx line of products.”
The Vertx line of EDC bags and packs is feature-rich and specifically designed to accommodate concealed carry in everyday life application. As a design consultant on all of the bags, Matt has intimate knowledge of their use in the field, and in everyday life when proper training and tactics are coupled with the right products.
“I believe in the products that Vertx brings to market, and I have been proud to have been involved as a consultant, so partnering with them from a training standpoint was a natural fit,” says Matt Jacques, Victory First Owner. “I am extremely picky about the products I use; and professional end users will tell you that having training with the right products can be the difference in a win or lose situation. The training we offer through Victory First will help our customers become more efficient and confidently reliant on the products they trust.”
Victory First will also manage a Train-The-Trainer program for Vertx that will help educate its sales force, dealer network and key customer groups on the design potential and benefits of training with Vertx products.
