Shooters have been using electrical tape for years to silence noisy things, darken shiny things, and tighten loose things. There is no shortage of uses for electrical tape but it doesn’t do everything well. It is black which is not really the best color for blending in and it tends to leave a ton of residue behind after it removed. Now, Battle Systems, is offering shooters an alternative to electrical tape.
Vinyl Tape, Coyote Brown from Battle Systems performs all the same “tactical” tasks as electrical tape but it does them better. It stays flexible even in cold temperatures and resists turning to a sticky mess in the heat. It is coyote brown in color so it blends into your surroundings and your MARPAT, Multicam, and Tan/Brown gear. You can use it to route wires or hydration tubes on your gear, secure excess straps, or anything else that you can think of.
You may think this is just tape, but this actually offers a much better alternative to something that is used extensively by many shooters. I think it is a great idea.
