Defender is offering "Perfect Fasteners" "Velcro-like" hook and loop tape?  Does anyone have any experience with this, especially in a marine salt-water drenched application?   What would be your recommended brand?   I need 1" tape to secure Sunbrella chaps on a new dinghy and Defender is my best resource for shipping this sort of thing internationally.

Second post would be even?

I can't help you but there are folks on this forum that can.

QUALITY DOES NOT COST, IT PAYS!

Brand names aside i would look for a polyester hook and loop vs nylon for longevity in a marine environment.
