Fechheimer is the umbrella organization for Flying Cross and Vertx, two of the most trusted names in law enforcement and armed services. Flying Cross sets the industry benchmark in uniform apparel with more than 170 years of experience in outfitting our servicemen. Vertx's uncompromising performance is a core ingredient of their success. In 2009, the first pair of Vertx tactical pants was created when a federal agency requested a garment that combined military function and low-profile design. By putting tactical components of military gear into pants and shirts, Vertx allows you to suit up like a combat soldier without the appearance of one.
