    I don't always have an ID on my. Bike riding, hunting, or even fishing sometimes if it is with me, it is not on me. I found these and love them. I use the wrist ID but also have the shoe ID on my pack. Do yourself and your loved one a favor and carry and ID. NO i do not have any association with this company, just a great product that solves issues for me.

    Great product, I've been wearing one on my wrist for a few years now.

    It's not a bad idea. I know some people use to get dog tags made, but with emergency contact info on it.

    Unless you're injured and unconscious and they are they trying to locate a family member/close friend.

    was made aware of this need some years ago while riding in THE RUN FOR THE WALL

    they had a carbon'd form that each rider filled out w/ the top copy being kept with the ride management during the event and the carbon copy was folded and kept in a ziploc pouch worn around each participant's neck

    as time went on i got a ROADID wrist band w/ pertinent information on it

    i now wear a MEDIC ALERT w/ names and phone numbers ingraved on it

    and when on adventures i still wear THE RUN FOR THE WALL pouch around my neck with updated information including a complete list of current meds

    in 2011 these resources aided first responders in getting me what i needed as quickly as humanly possible in a situation where time was of the essence(LONG story)

    For whatever it is worth, I worked on the ambulance for a long time. This looks like a great way to keep your ID info.
    I've made a dogtag at the Petsmart/Petco machine with my name and emergency info before. It is cheap and durable, but the company you mentioned, and their ability to put it on a stretch bracelet, is super. Thanks for putting this out there.

    I also saw tons of these and the medic alert when I worked EMS. They are very helpful in giving us pertinent information we needed to treat that person.
    Usually anytime I saw one dangling from a necklace or bracelet, especially on an unconscious patient, it was a breath of relief that I at least had something to go on.

    Also, side note, if you do get one, please please please please put some medical information, not just 3 or 4 peoples phone numbers. Trust me, the last thing we have time to do if we find you unresponsive is to sit on the phone trying to calm down your loved ones AND get information from them.

    I made a leather wrist bracelet for my wife some years back. Had a pocket sewn in with a medical / info slip inside. Stamped medical on the outside. Don't know if she still has it.
