    Customer Reviews
    Nexcare™ Absolute Waterproof Tape is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 431.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tape. I keep this tape on hand at all times. Truly waterproof. I use it to keep my shoes from making blisters and all kinds of things. My brother injured his hand last year and was told he couldn't get it wet and was told not to take showers, but we used a plastic baggy and used this tape to form a waterproof seal so he could take a shower. He was so happy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tape wrongcolorl Why is the only "flesh" color that of someone white? At the very least it would be nice to have a suntanned caucasion color so it's not such a contrast. Surely I'm not the first person to notice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not waterproof I bought this roll of tape because it touted its waterproof abilities. Well it didnt take long for the tape to fail , as my hand wasnt even wet just a little sweaty and it started to come off my hand. Disappointed again as I cant find a product that does what it says.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't stay on when washing hands I broke my finger and need to tape on a splint. I have tried several tapes and none would stay on when I washed my hands. Saw this product at the store and tried it. Same result will not stay stuck to finger, but does remain stuck to itself. This is the fourth tape I have tried and the performance is somewhere in the middle. Not worth the extra cost.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof at all, fell off from sweating after only 5 minutes after puttingit on, gave it another try and it fell off 30 seconds into a shower.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1,000 thank-yous I bought this originally for some trouble spots on my daughters sandals. made them useable again. I took 2 rolls with us to Disney world last week and only then did I realize how awesome this tape is. Out of nowhere the back of my sandal started digging into the side of my heel. I put the tape on and that was it for the rest of trip. no pain and complete comfort. I was amazed at how it sticks and stays in place and how soft yet strong It is. plus easy to tear in pieces with your hands. great stuff

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that it sticks to itself and stays put. At work they offer tape for wrapping our fingers and such on jobs that have repetitive rub spots, however I tried Nexcare Absolute Waterproof Tape. This product works great when I need the extra cushion, love that I can wash my hands at break and it doesn't soak up water or slip. Have personally recommended this to several of my co-workers. Have several firm believers of the quality of this product.
