    i use the reels of yellow floor marking tape, it gets "liberated" from work and so is very cheap. i don't carry a whole roll, i stick it to the backing sheets of waxy paper from large adhesive labels, also robbed from work :cool: :-D

    to fix a burn hole in a goretex jacket, cut a slit in the mesh lining, and apply tape to the ptfe membrane from the inside. works a treat!

    car keys are also a vital piece of kit. i have a magnesium fire starter, small led torch byprincetontech and a couple of other bits attached.

    cheers, and.

    Cool
    My car keys are pretty simular, I have a micro LED torch (CPC £3.50) and a mini swiss army knife. Although the swiss army knife has been used to skin and gut a bunny, I might have a job making a bow drill set with it so I ought to add some means of firelighting. But generally I always have my keys on me, so they come in very handy.
    Cheers

    We call duct/gaffa tape "The Force"

    Because it has a light side and a dark side, and it binds the universe together :lol:
