Really Good Tape

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my favorite climbing tape on the market. I've tried different cheap athletic tape and this Metolius Tape I feel is superior.
-It has a good quality feel, made 100% from Cotton.
-Has great stickiness and a long life. I can usually get 3-4 days of climbing in before I gotta replace my tape gloves.
-Made in USA.
Even though it's a tad more expensive then garbage athletic tape say from wal-mart, I know from experience that it's worth it. I spent $ on 3 rolls of the cheap stuff instead of getting 2 rolls of quality tape from Metolius, it was crap and lasted half a pitch before peeling off.

Fingers, hands, anything

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great tape. Takes a few times until you can learn to wrap it well. When wrapped well, the tape stays in place, doesn't leave residue, protects my fingers, and allows me to continue climbing.

Most importantly, it's easy to rip with tired hands!

Very useful

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This tape is very useful to have at the field. It is very resistant, so it would work if you need a quick fix of some piece of gear. It also has instructions on how to build a glove and other common things.
It is very hard to cut by hand, carry a knife if you expect to use it.

Can make a big difference

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Being new to climbing regularly my hands have been sore and pretty torn up. Using this over blisters and weak skin has helped greatly in not making it any worse while still continuing to climb. Use half width for around finger joins and stays on and doesn't get in the way.

Good tape for just about everything

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is good climbing tape and I do have a roll with the rest of my climbing gear, but I really like this tape for anything athletic-related. I use a lot of it in my med kit, particularly for covering blister bandaging or holding down gauze. I gave it 4 stars because, well, it's just tape.

I did some looking around online and it seems like $3-5 for 10 yds of athletic tape is a pretty standard price. So you're not paying too much for it and it works pretty darn well. Even better, the tape is made in USA like most of Metolius' products are.

handy when you need it

I don't use it for tape gloves but just every day wear and tear wraps. There isn't really any difference between this tape and every other brand for athletic tape out there but you might as well add it to your cart while shopping on Backcountry!

New skin?

It is honestly pretty simple. Keep your skin safe, put on some tape. Unfortunately, I usually only end up using my tape after I've already started to bleed, but it lets me keep going on a good day out at the rocks.

Sticky tape.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is great tape. It is sticky and works great. I use it to tape some of my fingers to create extra support for my tendons. This tape seems to stick very well and doesn't tend come undone while climbing.

Tape is tape...

No complaints so far, seems to work at least as well as other tapes I have bought. I don't think they differ much brand to brand, but that's my opinion, others might say I am crazy...

I cant complain it works good, might be a little pricey

more expensive than J&J and gets gummy

Have been taping my fingers up for years crack climbing, and have tried dozens of tapes. This stuff is better than the generic brand from Walgreens but it has a few drawbacks:
The adhesive is thickly applied, but gets gummy/tacky as it wears from a few jams. This new exposed sticky layer makes it roll up and even feel slippery under pressure.
For the price, in my opinion, go for the quality J&J sports tape, it's cheaper (marginally), more pliable, and doesn't gum up.

Best Tape Out There

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is hands down the best climbing tape on the market in my opinion. Holds up well and is super sticky.

Awesome tape

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What can I say, its great tape. It is nice and sticky and is great for crack climbs. The instructions are helpful for finger splits and to cover your knuckles

Awesome tape

When I tape up this is the only tape i like to use, it sticks great to the skin and grips the inside of that crack well too!

Tip Tape - I mean, Tip Top.

hahahaha, it's climbing tape, so there's not a whole lot to say about it. I love how soft and flexible it is, and it's also super easy to rip off when your hands are covered in chalk...it also sticks to the chalky hands really well. Gotta love this tape!!!...Get it!!!
