From the Manufacturer

Designed to withstand more wear and tear than any other kind of measuring tape. Given the roughest treatment possible... trampled underfoot, beset by mud, dust or rock abrasion, Keson fiberglass tapes take on abuse with little or no deterioration to their tough PVC coating. Very popular with realtors and other indoor users. The durable, metal case is coated with a rust inhibitor, then covered with a leather-like poly-vinyl chloride. The crank handle snaps closed for ease of use. Unique, non-slip surface provides a sure grip while the tape rewinds.

I got this tape measure because I shoot on film and to get correct focus you need to measure from the focal plane of the camera and this is the same tape measure we use in film school. This was too good of a deal to pass up. I'd recommend this to anyone.

I've been using these for years. I'm an appraiser and measure hundreds of houses each year and these work the best for me.

My only issue is they seem to be failing much sooner than before. Years ago the folding metal hook at the end would finally fatigue enough and break but that was usually after almost a year of use. I found now that 1 of the 2 roller bearings where the tape comes out of the housing fails rather quickly. Once this happens the fiberglass tape will start to get cut on the metal edge when unwinding and re-winding quickly shredding the tape and causing snags. you have to trim off the shredded edges or they get caught and jam. If they could correct the cheap roller issue this tape would get 5 stars.

Good for cinematography. I'm happy. Winds quickly and smoothly and it's not metal so it won't hurt anyone. Happy. Happy.

I have used Keson measuring tapes for years and have loved them. I ordered this, and the product I received is NOT up to Keson quality. It seems like an imitation knockoff version. The tape is hard to pull out and return, the knob and casing is poorly constructed. Again, I have used Keson products for years and have been very impressed. What I received after ordering this is, in no way, the same product from the same manufacturer.

I ordered the 100 ft tape and decided to order the 50 ft tape as a companion. I am in and out of my car a lot and can decide which tape to take with me for each job. The 50 footer is lighter to carry and fits into my work vest. easier than the longer tape. Good quality, better than the typical Home Depot variety. Big plus is the tape is made from fiberglass instead of metal (no rust or electrical issues). K.S.

Very durable and handy. I use it in the field (soils and geomorphology) and it is a great piece of equipment. I throw this thing around in the dirt and rocks. I bet this will last till I lose it. Virtually unaffected by temp change or tension. Great price. My only complaint is there is no clip or any way to hook this to my belt. I carry it in my pack.

has both imperial and metric system, which is great. it's about 15 meters long.
One minor design flaw is that when you push back the little hand to rewind it back, it's hard to pull that out again. I have to use a tool. Other than that it feels well built.

I needed a long tape measure to do measurements in the backyard, and this works great. Absolutely what I was looking for, and it got the job done. Not much else to say, except that I'm happy with it!
