Labels and Tags

Has anyone found any good products to label and tag items and storage containers on your boat. I use ballistic nylon pouches to store tools and spares and can't find a stick on label that sticks. I have also looked at tie on tags to loop through the zipper. But paper tags get soggy and the ink bleeds. Maybe a plastic tag with nylon string to attach. Before I go MacGyver some solution, thought I'd check with this forum for an off the shelf solution. TIA!

Not sure if that covers what you are looking for

Re: Labels and Tags

Ear tags, zip ties, and a Sharpie marker.
DIY with plastics: ice cream pail or coffee can lid material.
Sharpie marker wipes off with isopropyl alcohol so the tags are 'editable'.

Dynmo labels won't stick to the ballistic nylon. I've tried.
