I do a fair amount of shipping, I'd say more than the average person. I have never really paid much attention to the brands of tape I'm using mainly because the tape just works. By works, I mean it sticks to the surfaces I press the tape to. This tape doesn't grip very well. Typically if I'm closing a box to ship I'll put a strip of tape on 3 sides (a little on the side, then across the 2 main flaps-closing the box, then a little on the other side.... a very typical tape scenario I'd say). This tape doesn't grip the sides, it pulls of very easily. With this tape I wrap the box 360 degrees (all the way around the box). Once fully wrapped I don't have any issues. But I've wasted a lot of tape this way.

Just a warning. If I had bought this at a retail store, I'd take it back. Doesn't make sense to return the 2 rolls I bought. I just won't buy this tape again in the future.

UPDATE: I've had this tape for 4 months now. I'm still unhappy with its performance. I end up over taping boxes just to make sure they don't open in transport which seems wasteful. Also, I've noticed that they included another brand (Tartan?) on this product page. What I received was Scotch Sealing tape. Be aware the photo of Scotch tape is not what you will receive. This is not heavy duty tape. On the 3M Scotch website this tape is described as "Ideal for lighter weight boxes and general use." The description on Amazon says medium duty, that's pushing this tapes ability. I have moved up to Scotch® Mailing and Storage Tape 3650-4, 1.88 Inches x 54.6 Yards, 4-Pack. It comes at a greater cost, but watch for it to go on sale for a good deal. I just bought a 3 pack for just a buck more than 1 roll of this cheap stuff.

I asked my husband to buy me some packing tape today, and he brought home this product. He says he bought it because the outside label states, "packaging tape," at one spot and at another it proclaims, in big bold print, "SHIPPING." When you open up the plastic encasing the tape, you can also read another description, inside the cardboard "wheel" that the tape is mounted on: "Scotch Sealing Tape." This means that the company has offered three different names for one product and, unfortunately, none are an accurate description, because here is how this tape acts:

1. When I tried to use the tape, I found it almost impossible to pry loose. Unlike every other packing tape I've used over the years, this brand doesn't have a colorful piece of light cardboard indicating the starting point and making it easy to unhook the tape.
2. When I finally got the tape unhooked and started trying to remove from the cardboard wheel a strip to wrap around a package I needed to mail, it was so weak, it tore apart after only a few inches. This caused me the incredible aggravation of once again having to try and find the starting point of the tape. Worse, the tear was that awful kind where the tape splits apart in the middle, so it creates a narrow, jagged piece with a very skinny tip that is particularly hard to see the end of.
3. Tape ripping to shreds like this is a clear indicator that it is so fragile, it is completely unsuitable as a packing tape. To give you an idea how frail it is, the tape I use in my office, of the 3/4-inch, clear variety, and even masking tape, are both far stronger than this tape.

Because of these defects, I don't recommend this tape for any use whatsoever, and I myself am going to ask for a refund.

By the way, the package states that this tape is, "Made in the USA," but since the company distributing the tape has made a false claim about this tape by calling it "shipping tape," perhaps this claim isn't true either.

Despite what its description says, this is sealing, not packageing tape. So, if you enjoy "tape battles", buy this and save a buck a roll, and you'll be in for some fun.

I'll pass, and pay a dollar more a roll for tape I don't have to fight with.

trying to move, and I bought this crap tape. Unbelievable, it continually breaks and I spend minutes starting over. It has taken me 20 minutes to tape one box. May god punish them.

Hard to beat for the price. It's a little thinner than other tapes, and it isn't super sticky, but it does close and secure packages. It's also transparent, which is nice if you want to use it to put a label on your package and you want the post office to know where your package is going.

Cheap tape for about the right price. It is not the strong stuff so you go through it faster but is worth it as an add on when you need to get to 35.00 for free shipping.

This is the worst shipping/packing tape I have ever purchased. It is so thin that is is impossible to use without tearing. Never buy this tape!!!!

Not that thick
Made in USA but they were not proud enough to stamp the thickness of this clear tape.
ludicrous
