Moleskin or ????
In the past I always packed Moleskin in case of a "hotspot". Is there anything better. I really don't want to put Duct tape on my skin.
Leuko tape. End of thread
Bou I've never used leukotape. Why do you prefer it over moleskin, tell me about it? If the threads still open :)
I think bou was just saying he knows best. Maybe he does???
I’ve carried mole skin and now tape with me for over 25 years and never needed it. The only time I did need it I didn’t have it. Ended up putting a $5 bill between my heel and sock and made it back to the trailhead. Sure lucky I had some cash!
Tough as nails. Thin as paper. Stays on for weeks. Works when wet
Never heard of it so I giggled it. Sounds good. Will pack some with me.
In this case Bou does know best, Leuko tape hands down. If anyone else even posts to this thread you will be lashed 12 times with a wet noodle and banashed from bowsite for 36 seconds!
Bou'bound has it right, I have been using it for 2-3 years, I use it for more than just hunting, an Awesome product! Moleskin Sucks!
We used to use moleskin like crazy, back when I was an Army Medic, 38 years ago.
I recommended Leuko Tape for my Daughter when she went through Marine Infantry Training...because I should HOPE they came up with something better than moleskin over 38 years!
JT that is worse than not having my phone.
"In this case Bou does know best,......"
It was bound to happen eventually. ;-)
Bou'...bound to happen. See what Matt did there?! Clever...
For the first time ever I agree with the Bowsite smartass.
Leukotape is the best by far...in a 10 day goat hunt i taped a total of 2 time ( i always tape prior just incase) and have sweaty feet...works great and stays in place
I know its been already said, but leukotape is what you want. The stuff is fantastic.
Almost everyone has spots they know are their "hot spots"....I tape these areas before the hunt starts and don`t remove it until it ends.
Leukotape is truly unbelievable. It’s far more effective than one can imagine, it’s like a callous on a roll.
Leuokotape is great preventatively or with a "hot spot". If you have already blistered, use moleskin to "donut" the area. The thicker moleskin (often more than one layer) allows the pressure to be removed from the blistered area to promote better healing and comfort. Obviously, it best not to get to that stage!!
Leuko....wore it for the duration of a 14 day BC hunt and had ZERO foot issues!
What is the difference between Leuko tape P and Leuko tape K?
K has potassium while P has phosphorus therefore you better buy and carry both types for any situation. Just kidding. The explanation is that K designated tape is for therapeutic Kinesiology sports applications while the P is specifically designed for the patellofemoral (McConnell) taping applications (sports).
