They don't call this duck tape "100 mile an hour tape" for no reason, this versatile adhesive comes in 3 colors Olive Drab, Coyote, and Black.

Various theories have been put forward for the duck tape nickname, including the descendant relation to cotton duck fabric, the waterproof characteristics of a duck, and even the 1942 amphibious military vehicle DUKW which was pronounced "duck". During World War II, Revolite (then a division of Johnson & Johnson) developed an adhesive tape made from a rubber-based adhesive applied to a durable duck cloth backing. This tape resisted water and was used as sealing tape on some ammunition cases during that period.

"100-mph tape" is a name that comes from the use of a specific variety of duck tape that was supposed to withstand up to 100 mph (160 km/h; 87 kn) winds. The tape is so named because it was used during the Vietnam War to repair or balance helicopter rotor blades.

Duck tape, in its guise as "100 mile an hour tape" has been used in motorsports for more than 40 years to repair fiberglass bodywork.

These are the big, heavy rolls whose tape will last through all sorts of climates and conditions.
