Sometimes, you just don’t know what’s around the next turn or over the horizon so all you can do is prepare for the worst. The Contingency Duffel 85L enables you to carry a full kit properly organized in a load of pockets and compartments that will enable you to access what you need, when you need it. Capable of pack, sling and hand carry options, its low visibility silhouette will make even the greyest grey man feel at home in any scenario. When situations go sideways, you’ll even be able to deploy some firepower, from handguns up to a compact/collapsible rifle or shotgun, seemingly out of nowhere, on a moment’s notice. Travel is tough enough without having to suffer the hassle of carrying your stuff in a bag that doesn’t meet all of your needs, and then some.

    About the Brand

    The Vertx story started when a top federal agency directly requested a more functional, comfortable and versatile low profile tactical pant. Leveraging over 175 years of experience, the Fechheimer Brothers Company worked side-by-side with operators to develop the industry’s first tactical pant that combined superior functionality with a low visual profile.

    After an incredible reception by the industry, Vertx continued to utilize world-class designers to develop low profile apparel, tactical garments and low profile concealed carry bags and packs. Today, Vertx is trusted by the nation’s top operators and prepared professionals for our innovative designs, functionality, fit and versatility.

    As Vertx looks to the future, they stand ready to work side-by-side with today's prepared professionals to continue to design, develop and offer the best and most innovative products possible.

    Adaptable Carry Options

    The Vertx Contingency Duffel 85L is designed to adapt to your carrying preferences, boasting multi-role padded carry straps that can be effortlessly adjusted from basic hand-carry mode to backpack or sling configurations. This dexterity allows you to tailor the carrying style to your comfort and needs, making maneuvering through crowded places much easier.

    Rapid Access Pull and Weapon Sleeve

    Stealth and convenience are key for certain expeditions. The Contingency Duffel features an end pocket with a Rapid Access Pull that unveils a padded weapon sleeve. The sleeve is cushioned on all sides to prevent printing and can safely house weapons or cargo up to 29 inches long. This feature ensures that your equipment is not only concealed but also readily accessible.

    Convertible Top Flap for Versatility

    Imagine having an organizing surface or changing mat anywhere you go. The Contingency Duffel's large U-shaped top access opening boasts a convertible top flap that can lay flat, transforming into a handy surface for cleaning gear, organizing items, or even as a changing mat. The portability and versatility of this feature make it ideal for a wide range of activities.

    Optimal Organization Features

    Never lose track of your gear. The Contingency Duffel's main compartment has impact-protective padding and contains three large zippered mesh pockets alongside a full loop-lined wall compatible with Tactigami™ accessories. The full-length zippered side compartment further boasts organizational pockets, slots for pens or flashlights, and a keyring clip, ensuring everything has its place. This enables a high level of personalization in organizing and accessing your gear, adapting the bag to the demands of your mission or adventure.

    Rugged and Durable Construction

    Reliability is crucial when selecting a travel companion. The Contingency Duffel is built with resilience in mind. Constructed with 600D polyester main fabric, a 1,200D polyester bottom with a wipe-clean finish, and a 420D nylon lining, it's built to last. Additionally, the bag features YKK self-repairing nylon coil zippers and bonded nylon thread with reinforced seams and attachment points, ensuring it withstands rough handling and heavy loads.
