If anything is better than duct tape, it is a Voile Strap. Made of tough stretch polyurethane and a hardened aluminum buckle, Voile Straps have many uses. Carry a few in the backcountry to A-frame skis on your pack, fix a pesky climbing skin, hold your shovel and probe together and, of course, hold your skis together for transport.
Available in 15 or 18-inch lengths with the Wilderness Exchange logo. SWEET!
