The Gorilla Glue Company recently came out with a smaller, 12-yard roll of Gorilla Tape that's as tough and durable as the company's namesake. It's perfect for fixing things in a pinch, and for further insurance that your bowcase will stay closed no matter how much the airline baggage handlers beat it around. It has a strong reinforced backing, tough outer shell, and double-thick adhesive. It grips smooth, rough, and porous surfaces, and it retails for under five bucks. Look for it at your favorite hardware or sporting goods store.
