    That's a pretty decent price for gaffers tape round LA, those go for about $30 a roll.
    It's really good tape for a lot of different stuff.

    I got a small hole in my 2 person raft once while on a river trip. A buddy had some Gorilla tape. I let it dry and warm up in the sun, put a piece over the hole, rolled it onto the raft material and it held...for the next year and a half! I used it about ten-15 times in that time period and had zero leakage.

    Sold me on the stuff...

    Ride report: gorilla tape came up on the edges a bit and my seat bunched up again. Temps were around 20 all day so maybe it's low temp related.

    I may just have to cough up for a new seat cover...

    I had the Nashua tape on there before, left a lot of residue.
