Our U.S. Army tape is backed with a hook-and-loop fastener for easy attachment and removal from a variety of working Army uniforms such as the Army Combat Uniform (ACU), the Army Aircrew Combat Uniform (A2CU), and the Maternity Work Uniform. Hook-and-loop fasteners, also referred to as hook-and-pile or by the trade name Velcro, were first introduced to U.S. Army uniforms with the Army Combat Uniform in 2004.

This U.S. Army tape is manufactured on a swatch of material used for the original Army Combat Uniform, which was manufactured with the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP), and therefore may not be suitable for use on newer ACUs manufactured with the recently developed Operational Camouflage Pattern.

Soldiers may sew on U.S. Army tapes with hook-and-loop fasteners (the Velcro backing may be left on when doing so), then the nametape and grade insignia must also be sewn on to the uniform coat. Conversely, if a Soldier decides to sew on badges, then the nametape, U.S. Army tape, and the grade insignia must also be sewn on.
