Just wondering what's the camo wrap on this guys ear muffs?

Looks like he's using red shrink wrap on his magpuls. Nice way to keep your stuff from accidentally growing legs.

Anyone know where to get shrink wrap that wide? I guess I could use red duct tape or something.

Look for heat shrink tubing for electrical buss bar connections. Check your local electrical supply houses.

The camo wrap looks like this one. He's got them on a pair of HL Impact Sport which isn't mentioned on that page.

The shrink wrap just looks like wide electrical tape to me.

Completely agree as you can see the end of the tape at the beginning of his name.

walmart sells rolls of plastic colored tape. i've been marking my mags like that for years. it's cheap and easy. duct tape works well too but i don't like it as much

incidentally, i used different colors for different loads. makes it easy

Looks like red duct tape to me. Considering duct tape comes in a wide range of colors and patterns it would be very easy to mark mags for caliber and owner.

Given its conformity to the mag recesses and the nastiness of adhesives - I'm going with non-adhesive vulcanizing electrical tape.

That and athletic (bat & hockey stick) tape is what I use.

that's totally red duck tape, we buy it at the mardens up here

I could use one of those camo wraps, mine dont get small enough for my dome

Yeah - ragged edges... 100 mile-an-hour tape.
