Irwin Tape Measures Triple Pack
Nice tapes, I broke one though
I really like all things Irwin and thought these tapes were great. Plus I'm a sucker for the till side offers. I used the biggest one a lot, but after about a year of use (and probably abuse) the spring inside it broke.
I would recommend but not sure of the reliability. Tempted to buy another set when I next see them on offer.

Irwin Triple Pack Tape Measure
Its a perfect tape measure for the job. Great for kitchen and bathroom fitting. Strong spring action, easy to use even with one hand. Always have a spare set of them.... Would only recommend this product.

Good set of tapes, 5m tape is double sided, great value and good quality as usual from Irwin.

Pot luck selection
Irwin do three ranges: Standard, Professional and XP. Additionally, each has two versions: metric/imperial and metric only. That's a total of 18 varieties, bearing in mind there's three lengths.
Judging by the packaging, I suspect that Screwfix, not Irwin, bundle the tapes and they add one of each length without being too fussy about the other details.
In my pack I had a 3m XP (metric only but double sided), a 5m/16ft Standard (metric & imperial but single sided) and an 8m/26ft XP (metric & imperial, double sided).
A least one other reviewer mentions a measure with a magnetic tip, which suggests they had a Professional tape in their bag.
Provided they stand the test of time, these are good value, even if you get three from the Standard range, as illustrated. Getting anything from the higher quality ranges should be considered a bonus.
