Spend your time learning and practicing the skills, not keeping track of your gear
You will be working with new gear, everyone will have new gear, and it will be tough to identify yours from everyone else’s until you mark it. Our gear tags go beyond what tape or paint will give you. You get both color combinations, AND text. Put your name, email, phone number or all three on your gear. Focus your time on the skills and lessons. Our tags save you time compared to applying multiple strips of colored tape. We have two and three stripe varieties to choose from.
I’ve been in the Mazamas since 2009. I took BCEP and ICS in 2009, assisted with it for several years, was even the coordinator, became a Climb Leader, and helped with countless other classes. After nearly every field session that involves using gear, there inevitably will be gear on someone else’s harness or pack, and unmarked, or marked only with colors. “Who has Blue, Yellow, & White?” They were smart to realize one color wasn’t enough to differentiate their gear. But now everyone needs to have the color decoder list that tells you who has what color or marking. At least put a name on the gear that you just spent your money on, or perhaps change your name to BlueYellowWhite if those are your colors.
Concerned with durability? So are we. Our materials are made for automotive decals, and we have recently upgraded our clear over laminate. They are UV fade resistant, abrasion resistant, stick to most gear that we will have, and waterproof! Nothing will last forever especially when you scrape it against rocks, not even the electrical tape or paint many use. But ours will directly help you get your gear back after you leave your gear behind.
Don’t want any text? No problem. We can print only colors, just leave the text blank on the order page. Or do you really like your tape? We have multiple colors on one narrow strip. This will save you time. Apply one strip of tape as opposed to two or three. You get out what you put into the class. Why not set yourself up for the best and spend more time studying and practicing than taping and painting.
Not sure what to get? Whether you are starting to build up your stock of gear or have converted your 2 car garage to the gear warehouse, our wide rectangular tags are perfect for carabiners and most gear that is slender! They are designed to wrap around onto themselves, providing a secure attachment to the gear.
Find yourself in the dark often? Huge fan of alpine starts? Like to stand out in an audience with head lamps? Tag your gear with our reflectives. Shine a little light and they stand out. Perfect for marking your critical go to gear that you always want, need first, and don’t want to fumble searching in a dark pack.
