How do you review a tape measure? Why would you want to? Well, I'm the first review! The fortune of the entire company turns on what I say! The stock market waits with bated breath on my pronouncements...

And it seems sad that there's nothing in that section.

I ordered this product for body measurement - how big is my bicep, how fat is my belly, etc. I have no qualification to discuss how well this works if you're a tailor or seamstress, so I won't.

I checked the accuracy of the tape against several other measuring devices at home: two high-end rules (the three-sided engineering and architectural type, not the 2nd grade type), a carpenter's square, and a retractable tape measure. All agreed within a few smidgin's (a smidgin is just about 1/30 of an inch).

So it's accurate.

It's a nice soft tape, with metal ends. On end "starts" at 0 inches and begins measuring. There's maybe 2 inches of blank tape after 60 inches, and then the tape ends. The tape is printed on both sides. One side features standard inches only, in bigger print. The other side measures both inches and centimeters in smaller print.

Both sides start measuring at the same end. This means that the tape isn't "always ready," but with my luck I'd have the wrong side up, so no real problem there.

I'd like it if this product was 72 inches long instead of 60 - I've got big shoulders, and they're getting bigger. But this does what it's supposed to, and I can always buy another one and tie them together! :-)

I was looking for a tape measure made 'the traditional' way, with a grommet at the end for hanging it up. I specifically purchased this measure because the picture (at least at the time I bought it) showed a model with a grommet hole. Instead, I got what I was trying to avoid, which is, a tape measure with no easy way to hang it. Since this matters to me, it gets a 2-star. Actually, it's just another aspect of the race-to-the-bottom that has become an epidemic among sewing notions manufacturers. I'm sure they save at least 1/10 cent by tweaking the traditional tape measure end for the worse.

There are few things that put me in a bad mood more than shopping for clothing. Can someone *please* explain to me why oh why isn't a size twelve "X" number of inches at the waist - consistently - for EVERY company?!? Geez, a foot is always 12 inches, why can't a size twelve measure exactly, let's say 32 inches, across the board with every brand; come on people, this is 2012.

Anyhoo, until such time that clothing manufacturers get their stitch together, this little tape measure makes shopping much easier. At home I measure a garment that fits me well - for instance, lay a pair of jeans down and measure *flat* across the waist. When I'm in the store I can use that number and hold up a pair of jeans, measuring the same across and tell without having to go to a fitting room if it's worth it to try on or not. This saves me so much time and aggravation!

Pleased with this purchase and highly recommended.

I use it to measure irregular objects and it does the job. Durable, doesn't stretch and a good value. Te material doesn't scratch fine surfaces.

I have an older Dritz that didn't stretch at all, and lasted a long, long time. This one isn't quite as robust, but does the job.

I took the metal clips off mine as they got in the way of very precise (mm) measurements, and snipped off the excess ends.

An advantage to my old one is how the metric side also has inces, which comes in very handy.

A solid tape measure, -1 star for build quality.

The longer I've had this vinyl tape measure, the more uses I've discovered for it. It comes in handy for a wide variety of tasks for which traditional tape measures aren't as well-suited. The best example of this is clothing measurements. This comes in especially handy when purchasing clothing online. Let's say I'm buying a dress shirt and I need to know the circumference of my biceps. I mean, I know they're HUGE. But how huge, exactly? This tape measure is perfect for that. It's also easy to maneuver into awkward places for quick measurements. You'd be surprised how often you end up using this product. The lines, numbers and other markings are large and very easy to read. All in all I highly recommend this product. It sells at a great price point, too.

Like one of the other reviewers said what can you say about a measuring tape?! The reason for my review is the unbelievable turnaround time on ordering this tape. I ordered it and it shipped within an hour of ordering it and it arrived soon there after at my home. It is perfect for measuring. I needed an old-fashioned measuring tape for my sewing basket. My old one was falling apart and getting hard to read. This was so quick, even my daughter was shocked. Thanks!

I have had this for a few years now and I have just one tiny complaint, the metal piece at one of its ends is loose and sometimes I have had to re-attach it. Apart from that, it is really good quality, I am still using it, the numbers are still clear and there are no obvious signs of deterioration. Pretty good quality in my view.
