The Patch Panel from High Speed Gear, Inc. (HSGI) is a great way to show off all of your morale patches. I purchased this because I wanted to display my patches in the ADR office and because I had filled up the patch book I had bought from Mil Spec Monkey. Whenever I walk in I see this hanging on the wall and it always brings a smile to my face.
All HSGI products have a full warranty for the lifetime of the product… which includes the patch panel. I’m not sure what “abuse” you could possibly subject this thing to but it’s good to know that if anything crazy happens they’ll repair it. It’s also good to know that they put the same effort into making these that they do into their other gear that actually sees combat.
The patch panel attaches by means of corner pockets located in the top left and top right corners of the panel. I’m guessing the best way to hang this up would be to get some veneer or plastic sheeting do one of the following two things. Either nail it to the wall then attach the panel pockets to it or hang it like a painting using string in the sheeting. Either would probably work well. I actually hung mine using a shelf and some bookends which seems to work for now.
The HSGI Patch Panel measures approximately 35.5″ wide and 27.5″ tall. It’s made of heavy duty Velcro and is backed (fused) with 1000 Denier Cordura. It’s made in the USA which I always view as being a big plus. You can find it online and the cost ranges between $39.95 and $49.99. I bought mine from my buddy Logan at Rogue Dynamics and received awesome service. I also contacted HSGI about selling them in the ADR store but their minimum order requirements were a bit much for me so don’t expect to see them here any time soon.
