      by fromTape Works Fine, The Package Needs Work Some of the tape was ruined getting it out of the tube that it is packaged in, & it's impossible to put the remaining material back in the tight little tube package after use without ruining more of the material. The tube is a clever packaging idea, poorly executed.

      by fromDoes not stick after Nikwax DWR applied Have used this many times in the past with good results, however, I have just discovered that it does not stick after applying Nikwax DWR treatment. Pity, as it makes more sense to apply it after the treatment rather than worry about it coming off during treatment, but that seems to be the only option.

      by fromGreat tape for most outdoor purposes I have used this tape to repair two tents and a sleeping bag. The tent has seen at least two weeks of compounded use since and the tape still holds. The sleeping bag has been used and washed at least half a dozen times since. In both cases, the tape shows no signs of loosing strength or wearing off. It does tend to attract residue on the edge of the taped space, which is a little unseemly, but as far as functionality goes, it is better than duct tape. And the clear tape works great with just about anything.

      by fromGreat in All Conditions Except Extreme Cold I was a "huge fan" of this tape for my kids' gear, and now I am just a "fan". The stuff stays on pretty well, but it cracks in the extreme cold we've had this winter. The tape is still there, just split open right where the original tear was. This has happened on the knees of snow pants and on an 8+" tear down the front of a winter jacket. I think I will just slap on a second strip and hope it survives until the thaw. My kids are extremely rough on their gear, so this tape has been a budget saver. We can't afford all new gear mid-season.

      by fromA must have in your pack I was out backpacking in the Ansel Adams Wilderness, when my favorite backpacking boot decided to fail. The sole was coming off the boot. My brother-in-law had some Tenacious Tape which he had never used. He cut and ran the tape between the boot and the sole. We weren't sure how this was going to hold. Amazingly, it held very well. After hiking over granite rocks, and dodging T-Storms, my sole stayed intact. Even more amazing, my feet stayed dry in the stream crossings! This stuff is amazing. Bye-bye duct tape!

      by fromAmazing! We used this to repair a sleeping bag baffle and a tent fly on a recent, 8-day, 80-mile trek in Patagonia. Both hung tough and the tent fly in particular was a minor miracle given winds approaching hurricane force. I will never leave civilization again without this tape.

      by fromQuick and easy repair I needed a quick fix to patch a favorite but well worn pair of Patagonia ski pants. The Tenacious Tape worked great and held up for the duration of my trip. I may send the pants in for a more permanent repair after the season, but the Tenacious Tape will definitely last through this winter. I'm going to keep a roll of the tape on hand at all times.
