Product Review: CrosstrainID

Good Evening, everyone; have you had a good week?

Here’s how I’ve felt today:

Long-Friday

So. Did you see any of last night’s season opener? Wasn’t Peyton Manning on fire? I’m so pleased that I have Wes Welker on my fantasy team! Roll on Sunday……

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I had won a competition on Run Eat Repeat which is  fab blog!

Well, my prize arrived on Wednesday, and I am delighted with it. I love being a

What is it?

It’s a CrosstrainID bracelet!

These are ID bracelets designed for runners, walkers, cyclists, swimmers, etc. especially those who train by themselves. You can decide exactly what text you want included, but suggestions are name, address, emergency contact, medical conditions, allergies, etc. So, if the worst does happen, anyone coming to your aid would have the information they would need to help you. Smart, huh?

The bands can be made of silicone, or fabric. I opted for a fabric one, with a pink reflector band, for extra safety. And because I love pink.

After filling out the order, I noticed that there was no delivery option for the UK (the company is based in the US), so I emailed them, and the customer service I’ve had from David has been brilliant!

He agreed to send me the band, at no extra cost for postage- how amazing!

As soon as it arrived on Wednesday, I decided to take it out for a test drive:

It matches my visor 😉

I wore it on a 6 mile run, in sunshine, so I was sweaty and sticky. It was a proper road test.

It fastens with velcro, and I thought it might rub. But, no, it didn’t rub or chafe at all. In fact it was really comfortable to wear, and I easily forgot I was wearing it! That’s exactly how an item like this should be, I think.

As the nights are drawing in, and the autumn is getting closer, I think I’ll feel much more secure, running with my CrosstrainID. Thanks, David at CrosstrainID, and thanks Monica over at RunEatRepeat! 😀

  1. Monica did a post on RoadID not too long ago, and she didn’t open up the giveaway to this side of the pond. Instead, I looked the company up and they ship to the UK. I really like mine, but got it in silicone as I thought the same about the velcro. It’s good to know it doesn’t rub or anything. Well done on the giveaway! 🙂

  2. Just came across this blog post today as I was doing some working on our website. Thank you for the positive comments on our nylon Wrist ID — very please to hear you like it and it matches the visor. Would also like to add that the 15% discount is still in place for those that are interested. The coupon code is: RER15OFF which is from the Run Eat Repeat giveaway in September. Thanks again!
