Every avid camper has a list of necessities for which they cannot go on a camping or backpacking trip without. Although these lists tend to vary from person to person, there are a few items that we recommend be on every single person’s necessities list. One of these items is without a doubt, duct tape.dreamstime_xxl_31184491

Duct tape has a ton of uses in daily life as well as when camping. Below you can discover just a few ways that duct tape will come in handy on your next camping trip.

  1. Fix Your Tent Easily
    Nature is by no means the best place for someone who considers themselves to be high maintenance. Things happen quite frequently that require you to have to think on your feet and uncover a solution. If you get a hole in your tent or your zipper breaks, you can easily fix either problem as long as you have a roll of duct tape. Stay warm and dry inside your tent even if disaster should strike in the form of an injury to your tent.
  2. Turn It Into Makeshift Rope
    Although actual rope will always work better, duct tape can be turned into rope fairly easily. If you need to tie down your tent or camping chairs, duct tape rope will do the job just fine.
  3. Protect a Painful Blister
    Often people find themselves with big painful blisters after hiking to a camp spot. In order to make sure your band aid remains on the small annoying injury, cover it with duct tape to ensure it stays clean and protected throughout the remainder of your camping trip.
