I use it alot because I ship about 15-20 packages from my home each week. I have tried other less expensive brands and it is just not worth the savings, I have returned them for cash or exchanged for Scotch every time. This is the best ever. It is strong, durable, goes on easy and TEARS easily and neatly when I want it too! It is well worth the extra cost to avoid the frustration from cheaper products. I won't use anything but Scotch, I have learned my lesson!
Thanks for such a great product! And this is just one of many that I regularly use!

It wraps and seals well. If that were my only criterion, I'd give it five stars.

However, it is virtually impossible to re-thread the tape. I just gave up: I rip off what I need and apply it manually. If only instructions were available (sigh!).

That being the case, it's completely useless to me.

Moving, waterproofing mailing labels, and more

By Phyllidots

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I love the way Scotch Shipping Tape holds moving boxes securely together. The easy-to-use dispenser makes assembling boxes quick work. And I also use this wide tape over my package mailing labels to ensure the address is easy-to-read and waterproof. Sometimes I use this tape around the edges of manila envelopes to make them stronger for mail handlers. The tape comes off the roll evenly, not in strips and pieces like some cheaper brands I have used. It's really the best value overall.

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

The Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape is easy to use to provide secure and neat package wrapping. I can wrap packages without the tape wrinkling or bunching. I can use less of this tape than other brands because it is strong enough to do the job with just one pass. It is reliable!

By Tape waster

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

"Pull tape through tabs"?? The tape falls back onto the roll every time I tape something. I have no idea if I threaded the tape correctly or not. Wasted tons of tape because it sticks to the roll.

The tape depenser makes it a chore to use the tape. It needs some human engineering. How about a easy to use sturdy dispenser that you keep and buy just the tape once the dispenser is purchased

The tape is great. I am a teacher and use it a great deal to hang things in my classroom. The dispenser is the worst!!!!!! It gets stuck and or it clings to the roll and I have to find the edge of the tape to start it rolling. Bad Design.

The tape itself is great, but the dispenser is impossible to use. I have tried every possible way, and it either won't cut the tape, or the tape goes back and I have to find the start of it again. Really really bad design!

Poor quality tape..very disappointed!!

By Pam525

from CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I ship virtually every day of the week, hence, I go through a lot of tape. I've been using Scotch brand tape for years without ever having any issues. In the last few months, I've noticed a huge different in the quality of the product. My first issue is that occasionally the cardboard center of the tape roll is distorted....my only recourse is to not use the tape dispenser and manually cut by hand....a major inconvience. Second, the quality of the tape itself seems to be substandard....it can easily be peeled off any package it's used on. My packing cartons look pristine....no glue residue, no cardboard is removed with the tape. I don't know what has changed in recent months. My description of this product if someone asked would be to say it was "removable tape." I rely on shipping tape to secure packages...the fact that it can be so easily peeled off is completely unsatisfactory. I purchase multipacks....this issue is now present consistently with each roll....poor adhesion to say the least.

The tape splinters any time you try to peel it away from the roll. I've wasted 3/4's of the roll trying to get a full strip of tape out. Save yourself the frustration.

Tape Changed - Doesn't Stick Well Anymore

By Former Happy Customer

from Massachusetts, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

My company has been using this tape exclusively for years - tens of thousands of packages shipped - and loved the small size, ease of use and quality of what this tape USED to be. Over the past few months, the tape changed - it now says "40 times stronger" and feels very different (thinner and slicker), which would be fine except that when the "new" tape is used on standard kraft shipping boxes it doesn't stay stuck!!! Really 3M? What the heck good is shipping tape that comes untaped on its own from shipping boxes??? Extremely disappointed in the changes to this product and that we are going to have to switch to another type of tape.

Big question...

By Red Tape

from Geneva, Switzerland

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

What is the mil thickness on this tape? We were surprised to see that nowhere is it specified-- not on the packaging, not on the roll, and not on the website! Given the negative reviews here about its failure to stick, we're going to return it and order another brand that does tell us about its actual thickness!

Worst Packaging Tape Ever!

By Rich S

from Bluffton, SC, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

Purchased multiple rolls (20-25) of both regular duty packaging tape as well as "heavy duty" shipping/packaging tape. Tape does not stick to boxes at all, so you end up having to go completely around each box to allow the tape to stick to itself. Even comes loose from bubble wrap. If you want to use twice as much tape as should be needed, buy this product.
