They have a bunch of different models and styles and I recommend everyone get something like this.

That is slick looking! The only thing I don't like about it, as opposed to RoadID, is the lettering is the same color as the backer, which I think would make it harder to read in low light conditions.
Don't worry about that, you already know what it says, and besides the only ones who will need to read it are paramedics treating your unconscious body or cops trying to identify your corpse. Either way they'll have a light handy and you'll be beyond caring.

I'm like a cheap wine. I get better the more you drink.

Hey all, I haven't seen any reference to Road ID here, so I thought I'd plug them. Road ID are a series of wrist bands with laser engraved emergency info. Mine has my name, my wife's phone number, a back up person's number, and some basic medical information (blood type, allergies etc). I'm an avid road biker and runner, and don't leave the house without mine. Here is the site:
My wife has had one for about two years (competitive runner), and this Christmas she got me one. It was the Wrist ID Elite. The band is secured by the kind of clasp you'd find on a metal watch band. Inside, the band is marked with notches, and the first time you put it on it is too big. Then you gradually trim the band down, resetting it in the clasp, until you are at the 'right' setting. The band is silicon, and wearing it in the shower I find it stays nice and clean. The clasp and the ID are lightweight (aluminum I assume) and my hairy arms have only been tagged a few times. It is snug under a French cuff shirt, and just fine under everything else. Well recommended.

I'm a medic in NY and I can tell you tha because we (or at least me and my guys) always check for medical Id bracelets, these are a really really good idea.
Whenever I go for a run, and especially at night, I had some dog tags stamped up a while ago with my official info on one and then a second with Emergency info, contacts etc. on the second. I don't like anything on my wrist except for a small watch so I keep them laced up on my shoe and then usually just take a map marker on on the back of my hand write my last name and then "ID in shoe" and NKA
unlike the billions of ridiciulous things people think first responders are going to have the time or incliniation to stop what were doing and go looking for, imo these are a great idea and will definitely be of value if G.d forbid you become injured.

I have a few and always used to wear one because I was training for Ironman events and always gone. I haven't worn it in a year or two but think I should go find them. Great post glad it was brought back up for a reminder!

My only concern is how widely known are they with EMT or police? Yes emergency responders are trained to look for medical jewelry, buy they're trained to look for the cross of life indicating it's medical alert jewelry.
