Details

By Kristin Hostetter

Whether you need to remedy a leak in your tent, repair flapping boot soles, nurse a cranky stove back to life, unclog a water filter, or revive gunked-up Velcro, you'll find the solution here. And it can all be done with an inexpensive 12-item repair kit that, once assembled, won't weigh more than a pound or two-worth its weight in gorp!
As you'd guess, this pack-it-with-you pocket guide includes many ingenious uses for that most versatile of tools: duct tape! Here's just a few of many tips: 
Tip: Make a sturdy zipper pull by threading a thin strip of duct tape through the 
slider, then wrapping the tails with more duct tape. 
Tip: For a more stable stove, cut a square of old closed-cell foam pad sized to fit 
the base of your backpacking stove. Wrap the foam generously with duct tape for 
insulation and you have a stable cooking platform that works great in the snow. 
Tip: When re-gluing a boot or shoe sole, a few turns of duct tape can keep the toe 
area secure while the glue dries.
