Anyone have any links to places to get them?

I am talking about the stuff that's B&W when you look at it and glows under NV ala-

NVEC is the official supplier to the DoD, their subdued flags do not reflect visible light.

You can also find cheap knock-offs on E-Bay, but they also reflect visible light to a certain extent. Below is a pic of the black/tan E-Bay knock-offs reflecting light when the flash hit it (pictured on my RAID pack). The IR flags and IR tape from E-Bay are less reflective than the black lettering on the Army PT shirts.

I think most of the Ebay stuff is made of Scotchlite(sp)

I know most of the Ebay stuff is made of 3M Scotchlite.

Seems like I saw them on the Blackhawk Industries site.

Blackhawk discontinued these items a while back.

NVEC is the official supplier to the DoD... seems like I've typed that before. Click on the red NVEC and it will take you directly to the IR reflective one inch squares page, unlike the first red NVEC I posted that took you directly to the IR reflective flags page.

Before anyone asks, yes, Blackhawk used to distribute these also, but they were discontinued like the flags.

You hadn't typed that yet smart ass. Do you work for NVEC?...

Ahhh, my arch-nemesis! We meet again...

I wish I worked for NVEC, no doubt that the pay is better than what Uncle Sam slides over to me for being a starving grad student living on the GI Bill! I just used to buy this stuff from NVEC when our 1SG decided that he wanted us to all high speed and visible through NVGs after there was a little friendly fire incident at an undiscloed location in the Middle East. Being a low profile military intelligence soldier can be dangerous when you're so low profile that your own team doesn't recognize you...

Everytime I see people ask about these flags I think of that movie with Denzel where he blows up his own tank at night. I ended up buying one of those black squares from the chick on ebay that is always selling flags and fun meters and the other patches. I know they aren't the real deal but I just wanted one to go on my Kifaru whenever I get it. Speaking of which why did my post on lightfighter just up and vanish? The one where you posted the pic of your E&E.

I was wondering about the Kifaru E&E pic thread you started. I was starting to think the I was going crazy because I remembered posting that pic, but I couldn't find the thread either. Which Kifaru did you end up getting? I'm thinking about the Multi-Cam Tailgunner pretty hard, or even a Multi-Cam RAID since it is now an option on the LF website (not that I need two RAID packs).

The eBay "IR reflective" stuff, look pretty good and it is genuine Scotchlite so it should be somewhat durable. Even though it reflects direct visible light, it generally appears black in most ambient lighting conditions. More or less like the Army PT shirts, but a little less reflective.
