From the Manufacturer

Designed to withstand more wear and tear than any other kind of measuring tape. Given the roughest treatment possible... trampled underfoot, beset by mud, dust or rock abrasion, Keson fiberglass tapes take on abuse with little or no deterioration to their tough PVC coating. Very popular with realtors and other indoor users. The durable, metal case is coated with a rust inhibitor, then covered with a leather-like poly-vinyl chloride. The crank handle snaps closed for ease of use. Unique, non-slip surface provides a sure grip while the tape rewinds.

I have used Keson measuring tapes for years and have loved them. I ordered this, and the product I received is NOT up to Keson quality. It seems like an imitation knockoff version. The tape is hard to pull out and return, the knob and casing is poorly constructed. Again, I have used Keson products for years and have been very impressed. What I received after ordering this is, in no way, the same product from the same manufacturer.

I got this tape measure because I shoot on film and to get correct focus you need to measure from the focal plane of the camera and this is the same tape measure we use in film school. This was too good of a deal to pass up. I'd recommend this to anyone.

has both imperial and metric system, which is great. it's about 15 meters long.
One minor design flaw is that when you push back the little hand to rewind it back, it's hard to pull that out again. I have to use a tool. Other than that it feels well built.

I ordered the 100 ft tape and decided to order the 50 ft tape as a companion. I am in and out of my car a lot and can decide which tape to take with me for each job. The 50 footer is lighter to carry and fits into my work vest. easier than the longer tape. Good quality, better than the typical Home Depot variety. Big plus is the tape is made from fiberglass instead of metal (no rust or electrical issues). K.S.

I've been using these for years. I'm an appraiser and measure hundreds of houses each year and these work the best for me.

My only issue is they seem to be failing much sooner than before. Years ago the folding metal hook at the end would finally fatigue enough and break but that was usually after almost a year of use. I found now that 1 of the 2 roller bearings where the tape comes out of the housing fails rather quickly. Once this happens the fiberglass tape will start to get cut on the metal edge when unwinding and re-winding quickly shredding the tape and causing snags. you have to trim off the shredded edges or they get caught and jam. If they could correct the cheap roller issue this tape would get 5 stars.

This tape measurer is very nice but personally the winding handle won't pop out of the socket it seems to have gonna stuck in there. The product still works but I have to take the whole thing and wind the mechanism by hand.

I love this measure. It is rugged enough and for the work I do it works way better than any steel tape for measuring cable runs and the like. One thing Im bummed about... I thought it was made in the USA! Its not. I take pride in my tools and 99% of them are either U.S. or German, I steer clear of chinese stuff where and when I can and figured I remember my father had one of these Kesons' and it was made in the U.S. so this must be to. WRONG! Its a shame, alot of the brands that we grew up with and were strictly made in the U.S. are now out sourcing allot if not all of there product lines. Be careful these days you really need to look at what you are buying, what you thought was made down the street is now produced in sweat shops and town-factories. Sorry, went off on a bit of a tangent:)
Back to the point. Yes this is a great tape I recommend it, its just not made in U.S.A :(

Very durable and handy. I use it in the field (soils and geomorphology) and it is a great piece of equipment. I throw this thing around in the dirt and rocks. I bet this will last till I lose it. Virtually unaffected by temp change or tension. Great price. My only complaint is there is no clip or any way to hook this to my belt. I carry it in my pack.
