MARCO Mark­ing Sys­tem

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

This sys­tem was orig­i­nally de­signed to iden­tify cleared rooms in­side a build­ing. In­stead of car­ry­ing a hand­ful of loose chem­lights, the MARCO en­abled quick ac­cess to dozens of smaller mark­ing lights. The sys­tem has many non-com­bat ap­pli­ca­tions, such as mark­ing a trail or track­ing downed game an­i­mals. The MARCO’s tough poly­car­bon­ate dis­penser fea­tures a spring-loaded fol­lower that feeds 30 2-inch sticks to the top one at a time. These sticks can be ac­ti­vated one­handed by bend­ing them up­ward with your fore­fin­ger as they’re dis­pensed. Var­i­ous op­tional stor­age pouches are avail­able. Made in the USA.

Pros:

Easy to ac­ti­vate and de­ploy sev­eral light sticks with one hand Ideal for iden­ti­fy­ing mul­ti­ple items or in­di­vid­u­als

Color op­tions in­crease ver­sa­til­ity

Cons:

No built-in way to at­tach the sticks to gear, although we found sand­wich­ing one be­hind the edge of a Vel­cro patch works well.

You’ll need to use all 30 lights in a short time frame, since the ac­tive chem­i­cals be­gin de­grad­ing as soon as the dis­penser is un­wrapped.

Each dis­penser is de­signed as a sin­gleuse item.
