My wife mails small packages of sauces. Using this tape for those small packages is akin to using a flame thrower to light your barbecue. Don't hold that against the product though - it is not necessarily intended for sealing small packages. Then again, most people love to put 3-4 strips of tape across the bottom of boxes so that they can be sure that the box won't fall open. Maybe you will feel more comfortable using only one strip of this high-strength tape, which will end up saving you time and money.
I think that this product would excel for uses such as sealing and reinforcing boxes for moving. You can be certain that a strip of this tape around a box of books will keep the box from falling apart. It would also definitely keep children taped to their chairs as you try to get them to eat vegetables.
This tape really fits the bill: it is really high quality, it will stick well to cardboard, it will stick well to itself, and it peels off pretty easily.
My only concern, however, with this tape, is the price. It is 180% of the cost of the same brand, but slightly thinner tape. That seems high to me, and since I can buy great tape for half the price, I can't give it a full 5 stars.
However, if you are not concerned about price, this product fits the bill in every other way. Recommended.
Granted, not all tapes are created equal. I've learned to avoid the clear packing tape sold at my local Post Office because it just isn't sticky enough. This tape doesn't have that problem. And note that this particular Scotch packing tape is "Super Strength Packaging Tape." This means that it's thicker and stronger than, for example, Scotch Mailing/Storage Tape, which is also less expensive (at least in terms of list price--as of this writing, the Amazon prices are about the same). Personally, I question whether the greater strength of this tape is worth any extra expense; I don't think I've ever seen a package or moving box burst open because the tape tore through. But perhaps the extra peace of mind offered by this "Super Strength" tape will be worth it to some.
I'll give kudos to the dispenser this tape comes with, which is a lot more compact than those big honking tape dispensers that look something like medieval weapons of war.
This is tough for packing needs and comes in a nice sized roll that will last. The tape is a little thicker and it's very sticky for taping down cardboard or adding extra security to bubble wraps or other types of packaging. This tape is my new preference when it comes to packing parcels and shipping out items. I am confindant that this tape will not come undone and will keep my packages secure through all the tough treatment that packages get when you send them. The dispenser is strong and easy to use and very durable.
I've tried the local discounter's generic version and been very disappointed: tape that didn't peel cleanly, sometimes the end fell off the dispenser and stuck to the roll and then the edge shredded on trying to peel it back up. Very not worth the few cents saved.
This particular version of tape is slightly narrower than the "Scotch Super Strength Packaging Tape" I buy locally. The "heavy duty" on the label of this tape is visually apparent in tape that looks/feels thicker than the non-"heavy duty" version I buy locally.
The dispenser is the usual size, so normal Scotch refills should just work.
Recommended. Can't go wrong with this stuff.
This tape is very strong, and prevents boxes filled with documents from falling apart.
The tape is clear, and the surface can easily be written on with a magic marker, so that we can label boxes by writing on the tape.
Finally, this tape works well to hold things in place while the glue is setting on minor repairs.
There are other packaging tapes that I have tried, but I like this one the best.

This tape is great for packing up boxes when moving. The tape itself is very strong, and the adhesive sticks much better to cardboard boxes than other packing tape I have tried.Published on September 3, 2013 by LW

Maybe I bought the wrong tape type. But this tape is thick and seems strong. But does strong mean anything when it can't stick to a box at all?Published on February 5, 2011 by Steve Malenfant
Everyone else seems to love this packing tape; perhaps I got one from a bad batch? Mine has almost *no* adhesive power - it feels as if it's sticking by static electricity alone. Read morePublished on January 23, 2011 by Ryan G
