How do you review a tape measure? Why would you want to? Well, I'm the first review! The fortune of the entire company turns on what I say! The stock market waits with bated breath on my pronouncements...

And it seems sad that there's nothing in that section.

I ordered this product for body measurement - how big is my bicep, how fat is my belly, etc. I have no qualification to discuss how well this works if you're a tailor or seamstress, so I won't.

I checked the accuracy of the tape against several other measuring devices at home: two high-end rules (the three-sided engineering and architectural type, not the 2nd grade type), a carpenter's square, and a retractable tape measure. All agreed within a few smidgin's (a smidgin is just about 1/30 of an inch).

So it's accurate.

It's a nice soft tape, with metal ends. On end "starts" at 0 inches and begins measuring. There's maybe 2 inches of blank tape after 60 inches, and then the tape ends. The tape is printed on both sides. One side features standard inches only, in bigger print. The other side measures both inches and centimeters in smaller print.

Both sides start measuring at the same end. This means that the tape isn't "always ready," but with my luck I'd have the wrong side up, so no real problem there.

I'd like it if this product was 72 inches long instead of 60 - I've got big shoulders, and they're getting bigger. But this does what it's supposed to, and I can always buy another one and tie them together! :-)

I was looking for a tape measure made 'the traditional' way, with a grommet at the end for hanging it up. I specifically purchased this measure because the picture (at least at the time I bought it) showed a model with a grommet hole. Instead, I got what I was trying to avoid, which is, a tape measure with no easy way to hang it. Since this matters to me, it gets a 2-star. Actually, it's just another aspect of the race-to-the-bottom that has become an epidemic among sewing notions manufacturers. I'm sure they save at least 1/10 cent by tweaking the traditional tape measure end for the worse.

I use it to measure irregular objects and it does the job. Durable, doesn't stretch and a good value. Te material doesn't scratch fine surfaces.

There are few things that put me in a bad mood more than shopping for clothing. Can someone *please* explain to me why oh why isn't a size twelve "X" number of inches at the waist - consistently - for EVERY company?!? Geez, a foot is always 12 inches, why can't a size twelve measure exactly, let's say 32 inches, across the board with every brand; come on people, this is 2012.

Anyhoo, until such time that clothing manufacturers get their stitch together, this little tape measure makes shopping much easier. At home I measure a garment that fits me well - for instance, lay a pair of jeans down and measure *flat* across the waist. When I'm in the store I can use that number and hold up a pair of jeans, measuring the same across and tell without having to go to a fitting room if it's worth it to try on or not. This saves me so much time and aggravation!

Pleased with this purchase and highly recommended.

I have an older Dritz that didn't stretch at all, and lasted a long, long time. This one isn't quite as robust, but does the job.

I took the metal clips off mine as they got in the way of very precise (mm) measurements, and snipped off the excess ends.

An advantage to my old one is how the metric side also has inces, which comes in very handy.

A solid tape measure, -1 star for build quality.

I took off a star because when I measured myself the tape said I had gotten fatter and I thought that was rude.

Wow, what a product! You will love this thing, it is truly unbelievable. It has tons of little hashmarks, numbered at intervals-- but here is the amazing thing-- they are virtually identically spaced apart!! This is good, because it enables you to measure stuff with it, in adddition to it's other myriad functions.

I could not believe it when I unwrapped this baby. The quality of fit and finish of this thing is absolutely top notch. It is made of some sort of soft material that allows it to bend and flex without getting any fold-marks or creases. Technology is truly amazing these days! You can measure all sorts of differently-shaped things with this-- long and thin, circular, triangles, rhombus (takes a bit of dexterity) even a figure eight or infinity sign. I tried to measure an ampersand (&) but it was too small and curvy, so this does have some limitations. But for the price, this is really a small sacrifice!

My girlfriend was ecstatic when I gave one of these to her for our anniversary (3 years since our first date, in June). She practically turned red, and looked like she was having a seizure! I did not think she could possibly love me any more then she already did, but, well...wow! I hope to hear from her again soon (she had to move out for a couple of weeks to take care of a relative, and I guess her phone is not working).

What can I say, this is one product that will separate the men from the boys, and will really make you a man.... or a woman, I guess, if that's what you are-- it won't change that, just make you more of one? It is very empowering.
