The ultimate in slackline tree paddingI’m always improving little aspects of my slackline setup, and in early 2010 I realized that the towel strips I was using would be way better if they were tubes instead of strips. I started using duct tape to make them into tubes, and then eventually began to sew them. The strips fray and give off little bits of terry cloth fuzz that clog sewing machines and ultimately broke the one that belongs to my partner (sorry) after sewing about 4-5 tubes. But those first tubes worked great, and I eventually contracted a local craftsperson to make me a huge lot of tubes using reclaimed thrift store fluffy bath towels.
Many people have admired my tree padding, but I noticed few actually had the time or inclination to make their own towel-based padding. So I decided to offer a low-cost solution for those who would rather just cough up a few bucks and get some sweet pre-made Towel Tubes in the mail. So, without further delay, watch the video above, or visit toweltubes.com.
