Field IR patches are made with IR.Tools exclusive SandStorm Technology™.

SandStorm Technology™ uses perfectly formed micro prisms built as one seamless layer. Therefore, unlike honeycomb IR patches, water, sand, and debris do not damage the patch.

This patch absorbs white light (from a flashlight) and reflects only infrared energy so the patch keeps you hidden.

When a Night Vision illuminator (NVG) hits the patch, the patch will reflect the IR energy, the patch will glow, you and your location are identified.

We recommend the Field IR patch for covert operations.
