I've learned that for me the item I use most after my knife is tape. I use it more then any cordage, safety pin or anything else in my Altoids tin. 75% of the time if I opened my tin I was after tape. I needed a better solution for easy access to tape. This so far is for me the most practical solution for me. I ditched the Altoids tin in favor of the smaller Mentors tin. This gives me easy access to tape because I can wrap it on the outside of the tin. How do you edc tape?
