Gorilla tape Answered

This may sound random, but I am super psyched about the gorilla tape that I purchased today! This stuff is technologically superior to any tape ever invented, and I can't wait to use it. If anyone wants to join a group about gorilla tape and how useful it is, I'd be glad to start one.

Yeah I love that stuff! If you use enough you could definitely use it to hang up a hammock in your room, it's stickier than duck tape and I've seen people taped to the ceiling with duck tape!

does any one know how this gorilla tape works when it's cold out side? I live in Canada and this tape won't stick to anything when it's cold

on the sleeping mat? the hole came from a fish hook. luckily, the hook got stuck in the mat, so not too much air leaked. i was able to put on a square of tape and then use hot wax to seal the edges to the mat.

my mat is a roll-up foam one because they don't get punctures, and they serve other purposes too. this mat was my friend's.

Isn't that awsome? By the way, hows the "long distance relationship" going? And please post an instructable once you finish that pipe? the sooner the better!

that is probably the coolest tape ever invented. my long distance relationship is going quite well, thank you. in 13 days we will have reached the six month mark, so that is real good. in regards to the pipe, i have to go to the store and buy a lighter so that I can build it.

> technologically superior to any tape ever invented That depends on your goals, and it's good to keep that in mind. There are truly STUNNING number of specialty tapes out there for assorted special applications.

very true - but gorilla tape is an all-purpose tape unlike any other. i've heard stories of people who braid it into rope and use it as emergency lines when mountaineering/orienteering.
