Product Review: ROADiD Wrist ID

Disclaimer: I received a ROADiD Wrist ID to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews!

One of the things that I worry about a lot when I'm out running is what would happen if anything happened to me. Would I be taken care of? Would someone call my emergency contact? As scary and uncomfortable as it is to think about those situations, I think it is extremely important to take every safety precaution possible and prepare for the worst, especially if you're running solo. I've had my eye on obtaining a ROADiD for quite some time as I knew that they are an extremely easy way to protect yourself when you're out and about alone. I'm so glad that I've gotten to try one out for myself over these last few weeks and I'm here to let you know my thoughts!

I ordered the ROADiD Wrist ID in the Sport style, pictured above and linked here. I'm not someone who likes to wear a ton of jewelry or things on my wrist, so I went with the smaller option for the band at 13mm. The color style I went with was Coral for the band and Slate for the hardware. I also wanted to add a Badge to my ROADiD and opted for this one which made me chuckle:

Here's what it ended up looking like on my wrist!

I really love how light-weight the Wrist ID is. I was a little nervous that adding one more piece of jewelry to my wrist was going to feel cumbersome, but it doesn't in the least! The nylon strap is super breathable and I don't notice it at all when I'm out on my runs. The Velcro keeps the band super secure so it's not bouncing all over my arm while I'm running. Overall, it feels great and it's easy for me to just pop it on my wrist and continue on with my day. I even find myself wearing it around when I'm not running, which I think really speaks to its comfort!

I wanted to wear my Wrist ID to feel safe in the hot weather!

With the 13mm Wrist ID, you're able to get 4 lines of text engraved. You're allowed to select any text you want on your ROADiD product, and I've seen people include multiple emergency contacts, allergies, blood type, different disorders that they would want someone to be aware of... literally anything you want, they will engrave for you. I opted to go with my name, my hometown, an emergency contact name & phone number, and even a motivational mantra for myself - ONE STEP AT A TIME. (Obviously I can't show you the personal info, but you can get the gist!)

My favorite thing about owning and using a ROADiD product? THE PEACE OF MIND. When you're out running around, you never know what might happen and it's super important to have some kind of identifier on you in the event of an emergency. If I'm ever in a situation where I need help and I can't communicate with folks, I am so thankful that I'll have my Wrist ID on my wrist to do the communicating for me. I'm a big fan of ROADiD and I think anyone who ventures outside on their own should have one. They have so many different products so I highly recommend checking out their website and giving one of them a try!
