REVIEW NOTES:

The Marker Panel, Individual, Lightweight has been graciously provided by Battle Systems LLC. Whilst I have received a small financial donation towards the upkeep of this website, this review is like any with supplied equipment, in that I have conducted the review with the proviso that I will be painfully honest in my assessment of this item.

Unlike most of my reviews of supplied equipment, this item won’t be returned to the supplier. It will be going straight into my pack.
