          • Yes. The above is something I've found I can keep in a uniform pocket and it's always ready to go, don't have to take it out if it's pissing down.

            • Trell is right ( only on this point)

              good kit is good kit

              the waterproof USB has a practical and tactical purpose

              and if its easy wipe then there is a porn adaptation as well

              whereas the HI fi in your corner playing Smokie and the doobey brothers has no

              practical application except to take up the corner of a room
              Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
              Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
              The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
              The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
              The best lack all conviction, while the worst
              Are full of passionate intensity.

              • right....anybody know a good tape for taping up straps, etc. on vests, rucksacks, etc.

                fed up with black electrical tape coming undone....they don't make it like the old days.

                have heard of duct tape,etc. must be tactically sound and cheap. no bright greens, etc. for work and civvy sacks, etc.

                • Sniper tape is the best stuff, although probably not the cheap alternative you're looking for. one roll should last you a while though.

                  • A bit more expensive than tape but it does the job.

                      I tend to loop the black tape over about 10 times so there's a good amount holding the strap down. May waste a bit of tape but that amount hasn't broken on me yet. If it does break, just loop it round even more.

                      Make sure you fold it as well, don't roll it. When you roll the strap it tends to slip off. Instead fold it every 2 inches or so.

                          That'd certainly sort it. It'd also sort carrying a rucksack, annoying relatives, ever paying bills again...

                          I found a brand of tape called Gorilla Tape very effective for sticking/holding things together. I fixed some plastic sheeting out the back over two months ago, and it's held together extremely well, inspite of the wind and rain that's been doing a number on everything else out there. I got it for €6 for a big roll.

                          Also, it's got a picture of a gorilla on it, so you know it's good...

                            You're confusing det tape and det cord. One is extremelty good tape, the other is used for making things go bang.

                            • Feck.

                              I saw "det" and laughed at the thought, assuming it was det cord {mistakenly} he was suggesting to sort out stuff. I thought an tUasal MacGrainneoig was being his usual funny self. Ah well.

                              My mistake.

                              But the Gorilla tape is good option as far as I have seen from using it
