What is URSA Tape?
URSA Tape is just soft strips of moleskin applied to hypoallergenic sticky tape. In Black, White, Beige & Brown. Great for reducing clothing rustle and camouflaging microphones. This is from the company URSA Straps.
Traditionally you had to buy moleskin for feet and so ended up with a really thick bit of it. It’s great for reducing clothes rustle as the soft fabric surface smooths any movements of cloth on cloth.
The hypoallergenic sticky URSA tape is essential for being able to also apply to anyone’s skin directly without worry of reactions.
I am currently waiting for my order of tape to have a go myself but the video below makes it look impressively simple and easy to work with and apply.
