Practical Tactical Firearms IR ID Tag Review

By Will

Some months back, I was contacted by Brian Sabol of Practical Tactical Firearms and offered a chance to review some double lined IR ID Tags among other things.

One of the items that Brian sent was a 2×3.5″ double lined infrared (IR) ID tag with velcro hook. Brian was super cool and hooked me up with two sets, one for work and the other for the review as seen in the photos (smart guy).

The IR ID tag features a double lining of 1000D Multicam corduroy (made in USA) and a layer of Solas IR reflective material. In addition, the tab features a third layer of velcro hook. All three layers are cemented together and as well as sewn.

Right away I was impressed with the quality of the ID tags and they have stood up well to the daily wear and tear associated with field use. It should be noted that the tags have so far been used during the winter so no report on how well they will stand up to the hot Sonoran desert sun.  Also, no take on how well they will last in salt water etc.  

They reflect as advertised (sorry no pictures at this time) and are great for mounting on helmets, sleeves and other kit.

Practical Tactical Firearms offers 10 color choices (outer layer): Multicam,OD, Coyote, Kryptek Nomad, Kryptek Mandrake, Kryptek Typhoon, ATACS AU, ATACS FG, Black and ACU (aka puke).

They also offer 3 letter colors: Glow in the dark (GITD) IR (ITAR Restricted and Solas Reflective (good for SAR).

The ID tags are also available in three sizes: 2×3.5, 2×3″ and 2×6″.

Practical Tactical Firearms offers both bulk and MIL/LEO discounts!

In addition to IR ID tags, Practical Tactical Firearms offers tactical training classes (over 25 years combined experience) and an assortment of other soft goods.

You can purchase the IR ID Tags at the Practical Tactical Firearms online store. (21 day lead time)
