Tape tore when the bead seated.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

After wrapping a layer of Orange Seal tape on a Stan's Crest 26" rim, i installed a tube in a 2015 racing Ralph TL-easy tire, mounted it and inflated with a floor pump till the bead seated at about 45 psi. I used a tube to firmly press the tape onto the rim. After a while I removed the tire and tube. I found that when the bead seated it tore the tape. The holes in the tape were only where the bead had popped into place. Stans tape is thicker than the Orange tape. No comment on the performance of the Orange sealant as I didn't go any further.

Very comfy--no bunching in crotch. Legs are long. Stirrups hold tights down. Nice pad. With toe covers I'm wearing booties less. The highlight is the double layer of material starting on the lower thigh, covering the the knee and some of the shin. It doesn't restrict motion and keeps my knees much warmer. MTB in near freezing temps comfortably. Road ride comfortably to low 40's high 30's. The medium fit me fine (32" waist, 34" inseam, 175#). They don't get clammy like windstopper does.
