DPx Gear Danger Tag with Breakaway Blade
DPX gear is the brainchild of world traveler and über adventurer, Robert Young Pelton. The DPx Danger Cards are in stock and ready for immediate shipment. It’s a pretty simple yet innovative design by the folks at DPx Gear. The card/tag has perforated edges on the back that break away to form a blade.
