    bought it to try out it is not a sticker and you will have problem wrapping it. the material was left untouched for 3 months and it become very sticky and a smell from it. i have to throw it away. if you looking for camo thingy so far only gaffers are ok. but still you need to replace it every 6 months to prevent the white residue from forming at the edge.

    I think the lenscoat would be a better option for you... That one does not even use adhesive.http://www.lenscoat.com/

    had used it, and still using it .. for the 'sticky' sensation, it would help by removing the wraps and cleaning it in soap water every once in a while (cleaning instructions would be on the packaging) and keeping it in the dry box/cabinet would also help to reduce the 'stickiness'.
    As mentioned also, this isnt like the usual gaffer tape, so dont expect it to work like a tape .. u would need to have contact between the wraps in order for it to hold its position

    Yupe i think i didnt keep it in the drybox or a cooling temperature area and it become very sticky and took quite sometime to wash the stickiness off the hand. i got my from the local army shop distributor. i think was S$24 last time.

    Update:

    anyway, i was asked by ppl to get it for them. i can get it for S$20 pre order if you need it. (including normal postage).

    disclaimer: i found the old camo form i had for 2 yr. I was it and it is still sticky and i basically i left the camo form @ my room shelf and its away from the sun. hence, if you want it i can help you order @ your own risk of using it with your equipment.
