The mailing tube arrived in a ridiculously large box that seemed extremely wasteful and unnecessary. In addition to that, the tube was completely tattered and dented on one side so the plastic cap couldn't even be secured into the tube. I would have sent this back but, unfortunately, we needed this for something ASAP and had to make due with the damaged tube. I was very disappointed and would not recommend this product or vendor.

I was surprised when the tube was delivered because it looked so nice and new and clean in your picture. Alas, the tube I received had been used at least twice. First by Amazon to ship it to me, and second by at least one other user who neglected to remove the previous bar codes but who did indeed remove what looked to be pieces of tape that were holding on the end caps, leaving me with a dirty, worn out tube with torn cardboard on both ends in the shape of shipping tape. It would have been nice to know that the tube you were selling me was used. If I didn't need it immediately, I would return it. I can only hope that it holds up to one more shipment. Very disappointed Amazon!

What can you say about a mailing tube? It was exactly as described. Comes with white plastic caps that fit inside the tube. I held on the caps with shipping tape (also Scotch), but you could probably staple them on if you had a heavy duty stapler. The tube has thick walls and is very sturdy. It was shipped in a long cardboard box, which I'm using for storage (so it didn't go to waste). The mailing tube was new and wrapped in clear plastic. A red Scotch brand label (about 3 x 4 inches) is permanently attached to one end of the tube. I didn't need a 48" tube, so I trimmed off several inches with a hacksaw. It would be hard to cut with an ordinary knife, but you could maybe use a serrated knife or a new razor blade. The 4 inch diameter allowed me to ship 4 heavyweight laminated posters (42" x 60"). These large diameter tubes are impossible to find locally.

When I bought this tube last year I made the mistake of not actually looking at measurements. This tube is really thick and long and a lot bigger than what I needed. Still, it's solidly made with plastic ends that remove very easily for quick packing. The Scotch label comes off very easily if you don't want it on there.

The downside to it primarily seems to come from pricing. It's $14 now. When I purchased it, it was $3.99. I have no idea why it's gone up almost 400% in price or why the retail price is a ridiculous $48. It was worth $3.99 for sure, but I wouldn't pay $14 for it. Not when you could just go to a local store and buy them for much less. I have to wonder if it's an error on Amazon's part.

Like said in other reviews, this arrived in a super bulky box and was dented, scratched, and torn. So not worth it, I want my money back!!!!

I bought this so I could move my posters and fatheads across country. After 2 shipments (first amazon sending it to me, and then me sending it across country to myself) the tube is still in great condition and can be used again in the future.

This tube gets the job done and is one of the few available that fits the larger size posters I print for conference presentations. It didn't arrived "used"--although it would have been ok with me if it did. Instead it arrived in a really big, nearly empty box. I recycle cardboard but it still seems a bit excessive and if it came wrapped in paper or something it would probably show up in similarly good condition.

I have no complaints about the item itself.

I ordered two of these tubes two weeks ago, and they were $12.59 each, sold through a company called School Specialty. I need another one, so I came back to the site today. They are now sold through Amazon, and are $19.97 each!

A pack of 15 of these costs $71 on the Staples website, which breaks down to less than $5 per tube. Fifteen tubes is 14 more than I need right now, but I am tempted to buy the pack anyway.

I love you, Amazon, but $19.97 is a rip-off for these things. Even $12.59 was hard to swallow, but I was willing to do it.
