The tags are a great idea, just not executed very well. Perfect size for wrapping around a biner, but unless it is round, the tag doesn't sit evenly on the surface and creates little pockets. Also not as sticky as I would like (some of the ends start to peel back) and not very durable. These are thinner than electrical tape and the slightest nick will take off some of the tape...
I could have bought tape, cut it, applied it and been done. But I'm busy.... and a little lazy. For the time and aggravation saved, these guys are worth the few extra bucks. They are pretty solid too. Maybe they'll hold up better than electrical tape. Time will tell!
Some people made fun of me for spending so much money for something that could be done with regular tape. I disagree though. Trango Rack Tags makes for easy gear marking. The apply easily and have a very solid feel plus they don't loose there color when scratched against the rock. Don't let your climbing partner fool you into believing that cam is his ever again!
