When you slap one of these awesome patches on your sleeve, backpack, or baseball cap, your morale will definitely get a nice boost. Originally a military thing but also perfectly suited for lifting your spirits on the battlefields of everyday life. Quick and easy to put on with hook and loop.

History

Morale patches are often colorful patches worn mostly on the sleeve, containing a humorous image and/or slogan. Their history is closely tied to the military world. Throughout the ages, troops have had the desire to differentiate themselves from the enemy for obvious reasons. Prior to WWI, the British army had identifiers that they called battle patches. However, the actual morale-boosting patches were born during World War I in the USA. Style-wise morale patches have always had a very strong connection with airplane nose art.

From the military, the moral patch concept spread to law enforcement agencies and also to civilian use. Metalheads and punk rockers have been really embracing this idea, and the denim vests of the heavy metal crowd covered in patches were the fashion item number one in the 80s. However, nowadays you can see these on all sorts of people. Which is nice, because they do add some color and personal touch to your outfit.

Use

These velcro patches are easy to use. You can slap these hook thingies on anything that has a suitable loop surface. No need to prick yourself with a needle or ask your mom to sew the patches on for you. You can also switch the patches as often as you like without having a nervous breakdown.
