    Rubberize Patches

    Post by BM on Thu Aug 10, 2017 11:54 am

    My friend in Baghdad picked up these rubberized (some call them PVC) patches that just came out
    on the market. From what I gather, all are morale patches.
    The first two are for the medics. There are several explanations on them so if any one has something
    to add about them please do so. I have seen cloth patches but no rubber yet and there is also a version
    with the Spartan Helmet instead of the skull. 2-3/4 x 3-1/2.
    The other four are more morale patches.
    The reverse on all of these patches has plastic which will adhere to the smooth Velcro.
    If anyone has more information, please feel free to post.

    yes, these are morale patches. Possibly pakistani made copies of the Milspec monkey design, since afghans generally make cheaper vinyl patches, while pakistan has a very big selection of pvc patch makers (these ones seems to be good quality); instead of sewing velcro thru the channel in front of the patch there is industrial grade adhesive hook on the back. Nice items!

    Taucco,
    Thank you for the information on where the patches were made. As you say, they
    are of good quality.
