Q: does this have the hook or loop backing to be able to attach to something, or does the patch need to be sewn on?
A: Hi Pete, Thank you for reaching out to us. Only patches/emblems in the Tactical category have the hook/loop on the back of them. If it is not in or say the word Tactical in front of it then it is direct emblem to hat. I have a link below to all of our tactical emblems for you. This specific patch/emblem has an glue on the back that has to be heated on or can be sewn on. Don't hesitate with any questions or how we can assist you.
