It feels like good quality bar tape. I bought the red and, unlike red Specialized bar tap, this will not become lighter in color when stretched. The package include 2 bar end caps, 2 pieces of finishing tape, 2 hood clamp tapes, and 2 rolls of bar tape. It is relatively grippy when not wearing gloves. It is not foam/cork tape and thus has a different feel to other tapes I've tried. It does not absorb sweat/dirt like foam tape, is easier to clean than foam tape, and stays cleaner longer than foam tape.
If you are looking for an excess of padding, this tape does not have it. It is rather a minimalist in vibration damping (not a problem for me yet though). It also features adhesive on the back side of the tape so it'll hold its place. This is extremely problematic when you want to change the housing on a bike with aero shifters as pulling the adhesive will cause severe damage to the rest of the tape.
Overall, this is good tape for the money. Just be sure to change your tape and housing at the same Time to minimize money spent in the long run. I haven't experienced a better tape yet; but they're all relatively the same.
