I'm sure this has already been addressed (feel free to point me to another topic if you know of it off the top of you head), but a quick search didn't get me there.

Looking for ideas/suggestions on the best way to mark you gear. I currently have all my hardwear marked w/ green electrical tape. This works great until it gets really warm out and the tape starts sliding/peeling off. Any other good ideas out there? I know some people use nail polish, but I feel like that would be pretty brittle and chip off easily.

Thanks!

Nail polish works great as long as you give it a few hours to dry. I though it would be brittle as well, but it's held up great so far. Chase Bowman

What if there are no women in the house? You gonna go buy nail polish for your gear? Choose a pretty color...test it on your toe nails first. Chase D

You can also put some wine glass charms on your gear to be more unique. Joe Garibay

Tape makes crags messy. Some people say nail polish doesn't last. Pick spots that don't rub, like where the carabiner gate pivots, and paint there. Works perfectly. Max Forbes

They used to make this marking resin called the Mark, will stick on the metal for "eternal". See two reviews in the links below

Sadly, I think they have stopped making them (thebottlebelt.com/products_mar....
