TacLace is a device designed by two US Marines during a deployment to Afghanistan. It functions as a method of cinching boot laces in a quick and secure manner to any footwear with a neck, while staying within the uniform regulations of every US Military branch.

Available in Black, Coyote Tan, Foliage Green, and Realtree Xtra. Made in the USA.

    Interesting. Funny how the Marine is good to go ASAP, while the Soldier fumbles with “old fashioned laces”!

    These seem to be rediscovered and improved technology, not something new. I was using something called “EZ-TY Elastic Boot-tying Bands” that I bought at cash sales in the Corps, pre 9-11. They were an elasic band with velcro and a brass grommet and worked the same way except they were only a single wrap, not two and they only came in black. A search of the internet doesnt seem to show that they ever existed, probably because they were from a time before the internet was so prevalent. Anyone else remeber them?

    Have had a few guys use them, the laces are too short.

    We have them in stock and ready to ship at Last Stand Tactical…

    Would anyone’s CO freak out if they saw them using these?

      I’d worry less about the CO and more about the SNCO.

        I’m an AF Sec Forces guy and I’m using these. I like ’em. If I saw one of my troops wearing them I would just note that they got some efficient gear and good on them. They aren’t any different in appearance then using the Velcro boot blousers more or less. Then again I’m in the AF so I guess not the same. And yeah we have our occasional ummm “over zealous”? SNCO.

        Not in the Air Force.

    It looks useful. I should give it a try. Lacing shoes takes time and this could help.

    There are other ways to fasten your boots the same way with laces. Pull the laces, go around the top of your boots, put the laces through that loop, go back the way the laces came the first time and tuck them in. Same amount of time as this device. I’ve done twelve mile hikes in 29 palms with them “tied” that way.
