Stick on Loop
This Dyneema® Composite Fabric patch has a loop sewn to it and tape adhesive on the back. Peel off the brown paper back and stick it where you need it. You can use this to add light-duty attachment points to your gear, or add hang loops to your tarp.
If you need a stronger attachment for a tent tie out or a loop that will be under tension, reinforce the inside of your project with a 2.5” tape square and sew through the material.
These stick excellent to Dyneema® Composite Fabric gear, but they will not stick to silicone fabrics. The adhesive will stick OK to normal nylon or polyester.
Clear-White 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric with adhesive backing. This fabric is semi-transparent and will blend in with your gear.

Blends in well.
Easy to apply, as long as your surface is cleaned with alcohol first. I left mine in the sun for a day, to allow bonding. Has stayed adhered so far (1 month). I used 6 of them (4 corners, 2 for trekking poles) to shock cord the bottom of the duplex tent, to improve the bottom edges of the bathtub floor.
Mine stuck less than "OK." YMMV
Just sharing my experience along the lines of the product description statement. I feel like zpacks gives/gave fair warning: "The adhesive will stick OK to normal nylon or polyester." Hope this helps others make a decision about use in your context or idea. I stuck two loops to the underside of a trekology inflatable pillow to run a 1/16" string of shock cord around my sleeping pad with minimal tension. On the 2nd night of their 2nd trip (first trip was only 1 night), both squares came off during the night. They are still somewhat sticky on the back, but they wil not remain attached to this particular material in this application. The stitching is very well-done and holds the loops on the dyneema square very securely. I may attempt to re-secure them with another type of adhesive, because the materials, construction, and almost weightlessness of the loops will make them very helpful for this use if I can get them to stick.

Great little loops
These worked wonderfully on my home made tyvek ground sheet for my zpacks tent
So far they have been great, used them on 2 weekend hikes in the Whites of NH and have done exactly what I needed them to do with stability while hiking on some rocky terrain and setting up my shelter. Only complaint is the tips are a bit small for my pole adapter for the mid I'm using so will have to work around that.
