Scotch Tough Duct Tape - Special Forces Unit
Yes, we all know that duct tape is one of the essentials. Blah, blah, blah, it's like the Force from Star Wars....blah, blah, it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together...we know...we know...please, stop with the quirky little fortune cookie sayings about duct tape. So anyway, beyond all that, Scotch has recently released a bunch of new types of duct tape, each for a particular use. Some of them pretty cool. Hopefully they won't spawn more annoying sayings about duct tape...
From our friends at Scotch:

The one we're most interested in is the Heavy-Duty All-Weather. Do you think it's possible to wrap our entire house in it? Might take a while, but if it prevents ice dam leakage, it could be worth it...
