Comment: This black Icon badge holder is specifically made as a replacement for the Icon Military Spec Vest. I bought this item in the event my original badge becomes lost and/or somehow damaged. It is nice to have a backup on hand, and the price is no object. The badge holder has a clear plastic front and black vinyl backing, with the distinct Icon insignia.
Are these clear enough for the Gate Guards to scan your ID through? I have a vest that is only a month old and the "Clear" plastic is so thick and cloudy the scanner can not scan my ID, forcing me to remove it at the gate every day...Kind of defeats the purpose of having the ID pocket.
Best Answer:It is clear enough and it velcros onto the vest so u can just rip it right off your chest... I do not use it though because it is so hard to get my military id to slide in and out of it so I just use the zip pocket on the other side
