There are a couple of reviews about this product that state is isn't Scotchlite. It is indeed Scotchlite, even though the package insert is Scotchcal. I researched the 3M product number (79922), and it is described as Scotchlite. To make sure, I purchased a roll of 79922 directly from 3M (twice the price of Amazon). Same packaging, same insert, same stuff. This product has an adhesive liner sheet that has to be stripped off to apply the tape. I found this product best applied when surfaces and tape are warmer rather than cooler. There is a clear plastic liner on the black surface of the tape that must be peeled away for the reflective properties to work. Once peeled away, it shines bright white when light is directed at it. The only thing that disappoints is that the angle of reflection is very shallow. The material is most reflective when your eyes are at 90 degrees to the material. 2 degrees or so off 90, either up or down, and the reflective properties diminish quickly. I would say that 5 degrees of 90 and the reflection is gone.

I've put this product on the black luggage of one of my motorcycles. This bike is so black from the factory that I don't feel comfortable riding it at night. Adding this material give me a little piece of mind. The surfaces on the luggage are flat, and at a slight upward angle from level, so we'll see how well it works. I also applied some of this material to the tube structure that the luggage mounts to. This will give larger angular visibility to the rear of the bike.

4 stars only because of the very shallow reflective angle. A few more degrees and it would be a 5 star product.

***EDIT*** Changed to 5 stars. This make my bike MUCH more visible at night! And, the reflected angle is actually larger than I reported above. Am going to apply around base of my helmet as well as higher up on the back, to really be night visible! Will try and upload pics.

Originally, I bought the 1/4 inch black reflective tape and I was very satisfied for the product. Then I order 2 more of 1/4 and 1 of 1/2 inches. All of them have the same quality and reflective properties. One thing that I noticed was that when illuminated by a camera flash the reflection size dramatically increases. 1/4 looks like 1 inch! This provides added value to my motorcyling needs as we are required by the law to wear reflective clothing at night and this tape allows me to wear by leather vest all day and night without having to carry other vest. THIS IS NOT A BOGUS PRODUCT!

I bought this 3M black reflective tape to increase the visibility of my bicycle at night without making it look like a rolling safety cone in the daytime.

I'm very impressed with the quality of this product. It is easy to apply, with enough dwell time that you can do some quick repositioning if the placement is slightly off. It appears more charcoal gray at first, but as another reviewer says you have to be sure to remove the clear protective layer. Once you do so the tape is a nice, glossy black. It blends in very well with my black bike. It serves dual purposes for me: better nighttime visibility and also disguising the large, non-removable brand logos the manufacturer plastered all over the bike.

The 1/2"x50' is a great bargain and an ideal size for such striping applications. I even used some of the extra on my helmets, where it worked great as well.

Great tape. It is reflective. I would call it more of a dark charcoal than a true black. The tape sticks well. It does have a clear protective coating over the top that you can peel but it does reflect without removing it, just not as much. Over all I was very satisfied. I was looking for added safety and visibility while driving or changing a tire without adding giant red and white stickers and making it look like a work vehicle. The great thing about reflective tape is that unlike a road flare or emergency blinkers it does not wear or run out. A couple of tips. Clean your area before applying, it will help with it staying on long term. For longer strips press it down as you are sticking it down from one side to the other to help avoid creases and bubbles. Press it down firmly before removing the clear protective layer, this will also help prevent creases and bubbles.

Over all this is great stuff and I would Highly recommend it.

Extremely reflective, as you can see from my picture of the Bicycle. That's in a dark room with my flash on. The angle of light that it will reflect too is solid too. Easy to apply, if you push it on really well, even after 2 min it can be hard to take off, so make sure you put it where you really want it.

I bought a roll of this tape to add some reflectiveness to my motorcycle and helmet. I put a couple of strips on my Givi top pack and it looks really nice. Actually looks like it is supposed to be there. Then I added a strip at the bottom of my helmet. The tape is flexible enough to follow the contour of the bottom of a helmet without bunching and it looks great. The black on black is nearly invisible until the light hits it and then it shines bright white. Great product. I would highly recommend it.

Just threw it on my flat black full-faced motorcycle helmet... Almost invisible during the day... CRAZY BRIGHT at night... I will update with product durability as tome progresses. As of right now: Expensive, but a good investment.
