This is a strong heavy duty packing tape. It won't curl up like the cheap ones. It also does not fly away and stick to something else if you are not quick enough when cutting it.

We go through lots of packing tape in our home, and this is by far, among the best.

Updated November 2012

I found another great Scotch brand packing tape that is much more affordable. Scotch Long Lasting Moving & Storage Packaging Tape, 1.88 Inches x 54.6 Yards, 4 Rolls (3650-4). I use packing tape mainly for binding my paper recyclables. This works very well. I also use it for shipping and it performs well too. The item I am reviewing Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape, 1.88 Inches x 54.6 Yards, 3 Rolls (3850-3) is indeed a STRONGER, heavier tape. But I actually prefer the "Log Lasting Moving" tape. It is not as thick, so it is easier to cut. And on some surfaces (mainly corrugated boxes), it actually adheres better. Here is the link to the tape I'm using now.

Other people think Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping tape is great. There must be a variety of quality control in this product since I received a six pack which apparently has little glue or has been through some situation which rendered the glue worthless. Unfortunately I purchased it a few months ago and I probably can't return it. Enjoy the video.

I bought this Heavy Duty Scotch packing tape because I didn't want to go with a cheap off-brand and get tape the came off the package during shipping. Instead, I paid a premium price for 6 rolls of tape that don't stick to anything. Worthless. I hope this was just a production fluke and not indicative of a new trend at Scotch.

This tape doesn't stick to anything - not even to itself! Having used 3M tape for years with no problems, I called Scotchbrand Customer Service. A pleasant rep named Heather informed me that the adhesive has a shelf life of approximately 2 years and that if the tape is stored in a cold location, it loses its stickiness. I don't know whether the tape I received a year ago was old stock or whether Amazon's warehouse was cold, but apparently there was a problem before I received my order. It has continued to deteriorate throughout the year. Heather is sending a replacement. It is difficult to know how many stars to give this product because, on the one hand, 3M stood behind it, but on the other hand, the tape I received was either old or stored in a cold location.

I read the negative reviews for this tape but since they were several months old, and the 3M company representative had responded to them, I took a leap of faith and hoped that Amazon's stock had been replaced and the problem resolved.
Not so. I purchased four rolls of this tape, and so far one has absolutely NO adhesion, and the other I would rate as barely sticky. I got these for a little over two dollars a roll which was a great price, but I would have been fuming if I paid the $6-$7 these cost in retail stores and had the same problems.
For a company like 3M, which generally sells some of the best products, to have such a lapse in QC and allow this type of inferior product to hit the market is sad. I will not be purchasing this tape again, or any 3M brand packaging tapes for a while, in the hopes that they correct this problem.

We ordered four rolls of this tape 8 months ago, and just got around to using it. It will not stick to anything. I opened another roll and had the same results.

I'm hoping that others will read this and try a different product.

Nothing else compares. I used this on recycled boxes to move my library. It's more expensive, but you use less. This is seriously thick tape that sticks to just about anything and is much stronger than other domestic packing tapes on the market. One strip of this stuff is normally all you need to secure a box large enough to ship a flat screen in. My favorite thing to do with it is to reinforce those USPS flat rate envelopes that have really weeny seals. Anything you can fit in the envelope ships for a flat rate, right? Well you can get more stuff in there with one strip of this stuff and the envelope will NOT pop open.

This "heavy duty" packaging tape does not stick to anything! I used to love the "Premium Performance" Packaging Tape but it's not available anywhere now... so I am forced to buy this worthless product. I apply it and it literally peels right off.

This stuff doesn't stick at all. I had one or 2 rolls of the bunch that were OK, but not great. And the rest were just garbage - no stickiness at all.

It says heavy duty. I would believe that given the thickness of the tape. You can't tear it off like ordinary packaging type. Yes, it is heavy duty as long as the tape stays on the package. It does not stick at all. You almost need you apply your own glue to keep it on the package.
