  • Good article. We used this quite a bit in the Army, though it was actually called “100 mike an hour tape”. The products used now a days on the commercial market, much like the “550 cord/para-cord”, are cheap commercial versions of the ones we used in service.

    • Never used “100 mph tape” but I think the professional grade duct tapes are pretty good… and I agree that the cheap knock-off duct tape is horrible!

    Hey ! kind of off topic but would like to pass along a very useful product we just used at work . Not sure exactly what the name of it is but I think its called Tool Dip . If you ask for it at home depot , they will know what your talking about . Anyway , its designed for you to but a semi flexible plastic grip on your tools , it comes in different colors and best of all its liquid . Your supposed to dip the handle of your tools into the can repeatedly until you get the thickness you want , BUT what we used it for is painting on a soft bumper guard for a sliding pannel so it wouldn’t tear up somebody’s hands if it came down .Being liquid plastic its also 100 % waterproof! you can easily paint it on any surface to make water tight , its very thin so it will go into cracks easily .Its worth experimenting with or having on hand ……..many uses for the things preppers are doing .

    Good article, thanks for the post. Fascinating that it WAS originally called duck tape in the military!

    I always keep a few rolls around the house, one in our vehicles, bug out bags, and even in my wallet. It’s wonderful stuff. Don’t know how we survived with duct tape.
