Rip, snag, tear…oh, no, you’ve just torn a hole in your favorite pair of snow pants. This was just my luck on a recent ice climbing adventure. As I hung onto my ice axes and dug the crampons on my toes into the ice, the side crampons snagged my snow pants and rip. Throwing my snow pants away definitely wasn’t an option nor was ignoring the hole, for snow would get trapped in-between the layers of material. I tried using duct tape, but it fell off after a day. Luckily, I heard about tenacious tape, which is a simple, quick, and durable way to repair holes in outer layers of clothing and gear. To use it, simply clean the area to be repaired, round the corners of the tape, and carefully cover the hole. Winter isn’t over and neither is your outdoor fun of ice climbing, skiing, and snowshoeing.
