Gone for a Run sent me one of their IDmeBANDS to try out and review. They have many different styles & colors to choose from, but in the end I went with their Premier Silicone IDmeBAND Bracelet. Ordering it was easy, I just had to fill in the information that I wanted on the ID part of the band, and pick out my color. I received this fun silicone zippered pouch with my IDmeBAND bracelet inside.
One thing I would suggest to Gone For A Run is with their logo on the front of the pouch. In the right lighting, it’s a lot easier to see, but the imprint is very faint and can be missed if you’re not looking for it. Definitely make it more pronounced somehow!
Inside the pouch - my pink premier silicone IDmeBand bracelet. This particular style comes in three colors – black, pink or red. All of these pictures I took will show the ID information blotted out, but just know it is a nice clear, easy to ready black print on the metal part of the band. The price of the silicone IDmeBAND bracelets are comparable to the market.
These start out as a fairly large, one-size fits all, bracelet, but are easily adjustable. Gone For A Run has a video on their site showing the “how-to” on adjusting the size of this bracelet.
As you can see, I adjusted it to fit my wrist perfectly. Once it is adjusted, you can only adjust smaller, so it is pretty much a fixed size. I was pretty caucious to make sure I cut it the right size. I didn’t want to end up with it too small, then I would have to start all over (any buy a new one :/ ). Just be careful about adjusting, and be sure to watch their video! This silicone IDmeBAND bracelet is super comfortable and lightweight. I wore it the rest of the day after adjusting it and forgot I had it on.
It clasps in the back with a stainless steel fold-over clasp, and stays securely latched. Easy to take off and easy to put on. You can also see from these pictures the thickness of the silicone. Thick enough to be stable and durable, but not so thick it is heavy, bulky or uncomfortable.
Again, the lettering on the metal (stainless steel) part of the ID is a clear, bold and easy to read print. I blotted things out, but you can see a few words. There are up to 5 lines available to write your information. I included my name, city, state & country, two emergency contacts, and ‘no known allergies’.
Overall this silicone IDmeBAND bracelet is definitely a high quality product. I appreciate how fast it was delivered, the accuracy of the information I requested on the band, and how lightweight and comfortable it is to wear. I wore it when I was working out and it didn’t get too sweaty, about the same as if I had a watch on.
