A term coined by Stirling Archer, the star of the animated show Archer, aired on FX. It is a turtle neck used in undercover or reconnaissance missions. The name comes from the combination of tactile and turtle neck.
"I didn’t invent the turtle-neck, Lana, but I was the first to recognize it’s potential as a tactical garment. The tactical turtle-neck, Lana… the tactle neck!" -Stirling Archer, season 1 episode 8, "The Rock".
