    Couldn't find anything on "Scotch binding wrap". Is that the real name?

    Wonder if by "Scotch" he means products from 3M like Scotch tape, in which case binding wrap could be that lightweight self-adhesive plastic that books are wrapped and shipped in. I would think you need the tension of the wrapping around an object to have it hold though.

    we await WBG's reply...

    I just surfed around on the 3M site with no luck. Google search turned up this which looks like velcro to me.

    3M self-adhesive wrap

    a bunch of hits through this page

    especially the "Coban Self-Adherent Wrap"

    still hard to imagine how to use this in place of velcro...

    I sincerely doubt that the "one wrap tapes" are lighter than omni tape... Since they have both the hook side and the fuzzy side on the runninig tape carrier....Further to apply it to two surfaces that need attachment it would require two lengths, thus more weight than a corresponding two lengths of the lighter Omni Tape which is a tape carrier and only the "peened hooks" on one side so that the blank side is readily stitched to the surface to be attached.
