First Look: Vertx 2nd Generation EDC Bags

Vertx is releasing a second generation line of EDC bags at the 2015 Shot Show.  The new bags aesthetically look like the 1st gen bags, but Vertx obviously listened to customer feedback and responded with some new form factors.

The EDC Ready Pack is designed as a versatile daily use backpack.  No specs have been released yet, but it looks smaller than the EDC Gamut, which we reviewed last year.  Perhaps a downsized version similar to what 5.11 did with the RUSH 12 and 24.

The EDC Essential Bag is a small go bag.  This could be an option for those who liked the EDC Courier and Satchel but thought they were too large to be practical for every day carry.

The EDC Transit Sling is a small, low profile single strapped bag.  In my opinion, the only viable slings for extended use are small so this should prove to be a nice addition to Vertx’s line up.  And if you off-body carry, this could also be a great choice for CCW.

The B-Range Bag is a compact range bag designed for easy storage.  The A-Range Bag, with its pull out ammo trays, was fantastic.  I gave my Dad one for Christmas and he loves it.  But, for some shooters, the A-Range might be overkill if they don’t own a bunch of guns and gear.

The EDC Principle Brief Case is a 3-in-1 that can also be converted to a backpack or sling.

    No carry handles again. “High speed operators” need carry handles, not a place to slip your fingers like a door handle. I had high hopes for the EDC satchel, was quickly let down and the bag was tossed into the sale pile quickly. Thankfully I didn’t lose too much on it.
    No handles, bag that fell over just by looking at it, a really weird organization set up, and a strap that doesn’t come off and spent most its time in a twisted knot.
    I’ll pass this time around.
    Would like to try some pants though.

    Hi Blaine,
    Do you have any more details or pictures of the EDC ready pack? Any idea when you think it will be released? I had very high hopes for the gamut but it was just way too big so I am hoping that this is the pack I have been waiting for.

  3. Jason says:

    Thanks, Blaine. I can’t wait to see what Vertx has to say – I have been checking fairly regularly and having been able to get a release date. I would also love to see some additional pics of the “EDC Ready” pack as it seems to have fixed many of the issues I had with the Gamut (mainly size). Unless Tom Bihn decides to create a Synapse 25 with a frame sheet, this new offering from Vertx may just have to be my next EDC pack and could possibly knock the new Litespeed out of rotation!
