Dig it: Ko-Tac IR Patches & Identifiers

When he’s not accompanying the Ho-Tac team on its adventures, fighting the evil minions of Lo Pan and the Lords of Death, going battle with Pulgasari or thwarting the depredations of the yakuza, the guy behind Ko-Tactical makes some pretty awesome ID patches. This may largely because he’s a world traveling creative genius. Grunts: depredation.

Note – yes, that was an Asian joke. To cover all the bases we included Chinese, Japanese and Korean references. You’re welcome.

The patches are vinyl, with milspe IR material for the letters (so the black IR material is non-reflective under white light and only reflects under active IR). All of them are made in the US, designed first on computer and then machine cut. What we like about is the fact that there’s no minimum order. You can buy a bunch for your whole squad or just one with cock’n’balls on it to throw on your buddy’s pack before you roll out on your next patrol (somebody should actually do that, and send us a picture).
