I ordered this Stanley measure after many frustrating experiences with "value" tape measures that either broke or wouldn't lock in place. The moment you take this Stanley measure out of the packet it shouts "quality". Its' construction is rugged and rubberised plus it has a handy belt hook. The tape action is positive with a firm lock and both Imperial and Metric measurements are clearly marked in black on yellow with increments of 10cm highlighted in red. The tape is coated in Tylon which, according to Stanley, improves its durability. The price on Amazon is, compared to DIY outlets, a steal. To me this is the VW of measuring tapes - yes, it costs a few pennies more, and, it doesn't have any gimmicks, but what you get is a real quality product that will last. Recommended.

Stanley 0-30-696 (5m/16' Tylon) is the best pocket tape I ever had.

Tape is 19mm wide and the text on it are pretty large, in case your eyesight isn't great.

I don't know how many pocket tapes I had (and broke) throughout my life but this one feels the most robust and sturdy.

You don't need to shop for alternatives; just buy this Stanley.

excellent product, dual scaled to suit the 'older handyman', if pressed to criticise I will suggest that the illustration on the web-site is of the earlier version which having more yellow areas than the later predominantly black version is easier to find! I really wanted the earlier version for the reason given, I expect I will come to love the later, blacker version!

A simple tape measure that gets the job done. The black parts are rubberised and is comfortable to hold. The lock is sturdy and doesn't look like it'll release the tape by accident.

At the end of the day you can't really go wrong with this!

been used for general indoor construction work for about 3 weeks. Working well so far, not sticking or bending as yet.
Sturdy outer casing, not too chunky, goes fairly unnoticed in my pocket.

Stanley tools are good quality and this tape is no exception, its robust and the action on it seems smooth, it was a good deal online as I have seen the same product in the shops at twice the price.

Always used my dad's Stanley tape measure when I was growing up, and never found another brand with quite as good quality. This isn't the exact same model I grew up using, but that one's looking a bit tatty now for being dropped quite so many times, so I thought this rubber-wrapped model might get an even better lifespan (even if the old one hasn't quite given up yet!) Obviously I've only just had this tape, so there's not much I can say about reliability over time, but giving it a good look over, it's everything you'd expect at first glance; it's tough-feeling, really chunky. Definitely looks tough enough to live in the tool box/ get dropped off a few ladders. The tape's a good standard width (18mm I think it said on the pack). It also said on the packaging that the tape is coated with what is essentially a thin layer of tough plastic film, intended to prevent the printed numbers getting scraped off too soon. Not sure if this was on the old Stanley tape, but it's nice to know they've intended it for long-term use. The printing is good quality, large font so it's easy enough to read in low light/ at arm's length. Until I try it out for a while, I won't know for sure how it'll last, but the tough, good-quality feel of it inspires confidence, and that on top of the Stanley brand would have me happily betting that I'll be using this tape for a good many years.

This should have been a good tape. Legibility and quality appeared to be very good. Unfortunately on first use I needed to pull out the tape to the full 5 meters whereupon the tape completely detached itself from the case and the measure is now in two parts. Rather a disappointing result for a 'good' brand name!! I expected much better reliability from Stanley!
