The Hazard 4 collection of rubber patches is considered to be the most durable, unique and progressive in its market. They will not pill like traditional embroidered patches, have a very modern, professional appearance, and are the most legible type available. The raised 3D layered effect holds even the smallest detail and can always be seen and felt. Pre-sewn with hook-side Velcro backing for mounting on any loop field area like those found on Hazard 4 packs and bags. Also featuring a special background texture (guioche) pattern that eliminates reflections, and helps to break up the formation of ice in winter and mud in summer. Widely deployed with U.S. and foreign military/special-forces units worldwide, they are also favorites with reporters, pro photographers, rescue, police and hard-core travelers.
