- The tape is great for strengthening, sealing, or repairing sewn seams on your stuff sacks, backpacks, and tarps. It can also be cut into smaller patches for punctures or tears.
- The adhesive will stick to many materials and is a good all-purpose repair tape for most of your gear. It will not stick to Silicone fabrics, or rough texture fabrics like the exterior most backpacks. Put it on the smooth interior of backpacks, rain gear, etc.
- It is sold in 54" length sections. Overlap the ends of the sections for longer length seams.

Excellent product . Received product quickly and looking forward to using this with my Arc Blast backpack and bear bag kit !
I was sent a defective tent. Communication with support was incoherent at best. I am not in process of getting the tent back to process a return. PIA/ nightmare- lesson learned
Kind of tough to apply on the inside of the pack at the very bottom. Maybe instead of a single layer at the bottom of the packs, double line them. Wouldn’t add too much weight to the packs at all and would increase the durability. Packs are always being set down and this is the portion that consistently is in the ground.
Tape easy to install
I started with a clean fresh seam on my dyneema project. I stretched the seam out snug on the dining room table using clothespin style woodworking clamps with padded jaws. From there it was just a matter of removing about 4 inches at a time of the paper backing as I worked my way down the seam
But Why ...
Necessary item for repairs in field ... yet the Q should be why is it required? Only for faulty items or ......... I used mine for a faulty triplex tent (my friends, NOT mine) & helped them out alot. Their tent was constructed of faulty DFC & their triplex was replaced BUT at a super inconvenience to them. On PCT (or any other thru-hike you kinda need your home on a daily BASIS). Their triplex was replaced ... eventually but without having the necessary tape to fix the problem temporarily they would have had to end their hike immediately OR spend even more money on an immediate replacement. So yes the tape is GREAT but .....
