Vertx's 37.5 Technology gets its name from its goal to maintain body temperature at 37.5 degrees Celsius, for optimum performance. The waterproof and wind-resistant material has active particles to capture and release moisture vapor to keep the user dry and comfortable. The jacket has two hand pockets with waterproof zippers and two zippered chest pockets with storm flaps and dropdown ID panels. There's a large dropdown ID panel on the back as well, plus an arm pocket with a waterproof zipper. The cuffs are elastic with Velcro straps, and the hem has a drawstring.
Pros: Vertx wants you to stay airy with side vents that traverse all the way from the tricep down the armpit to the bottom of the jacket. They zip from either side as well, to provide ventilation or access to deadly items stored on your belt. The shell is also relatively soft.
Cons: The removable hood is adjustable, but its bill kept falling into our eyes. The Integrity shell is similarly noisy as others.
