Marking Gear - Nail Polish? 13-Apr-2011 At 10:40:56 AM wm
Have tried nail polish and tape. Permanent marker is heaps better!

1) you can write your name / initials / favourite doodle, so it's much more individual (there's only so many colours of nail polish and tape that people use)
2) it lasts heaps longer (just write on the non-wearing surfaces - yes even carabiners and RPs have some). I get 5 years between refreshes on even the most heavily used gear
3) no litter unlike when tape falls off - i get dismayed at how many bits of others' insulation/marking tape I find at the crags
4) tape can get in the way and catch on things - eg if you want to rotate the biner in a quickdraw.
5) gear freaks can benefit from the "huge" weight saving of not having tape
