Oh Hey there, Heifers!! I've been a little slack lately here on the HeiferHood blog - but I'm back with you today for a product review on something that I just luuuuuuurve. (That's heifer for LOVE).
As in, big puffy heart.
You guys know I run in the dark. If you didn't know that - you get detention and chalkboard duty, because I say that probably every 23 seconds. What's the most important thing about running in the dark?
SAFETY!!!!! (If you guessed that properly, give yah-self a high-hoof, ok?!)
Safety first. Always. You need to properly lit up (no, not drunk - REFLECTIVE, and with lights, Brilliant Reflective strips, too) and also, you NEED proper identification, on your person. At all times. Nobody wakes up thinking, "I'm going to be in an accident today." Ever.
Enter ROAD ID (I have the Elite version).
What I love most about this - is that it's just part of my routine. I wear it every.single.time I run. You can personalize the plate and have it say whatever you like. Here's mine, in all it's purple glory. Not only is a great quality safety piece - but I can't lie - the cool packaging kind of sucked me in too.
From the RoadID website, here's a few words on this product:
"The Wrist ID Elite just might be the sexiest ID in the Road ID lineup. With the choice of a silicone or leather band and watch-style buckle, this sleek ID has you covered on the bike, in the boardroom and everywhere in-between. It's perfect for all of your outdoor activities and knows how to play it cool at formal events. With the Elite, you get valuable peace of mind with a look that’s just right for everyday wear. Yes, we know, it's a bit more expensive. But, when you put it on, you'll know why you spent the extra money. Get your Wrist ID Elite today...your life may depend on it. One size fits all."
It comes ready to adjust - and is super-easy to make yours custom fit. The clasp is easy to use and since it comes in a bajillion colors - pick your fave and feel fashionable, even when you're out there all sweaty and gross.
I know what you're thinking - there's a catch. This awesomeness isn't guaranteed. Once you wear it into your uncle Bob's lake by mistake, it's going to rust and fall apart.
WRONG. Guess what? It's guaranteed.
"All of our products come with a genuine satisfaction guarantee. In addition to this, the ID tag (the stainless steel part of the ID) has a lifetime guarantee. If you are tough enough to wear your Road ID out, then we will replace it at no charge. I challenge you to destroy them (through natural wear - gunshots and hand grenades don't count). Always remember that wearing ID is important for everyone in your family that enjoys the great outdoors."
Are you for REALSIES here? A product that's lifetime guaranteed? No way.
(WAY). It's latex-free for all you cool heifers with a latex allergy, too. The only thing it CAN'T do for you is laundry. And they said they're working on that for next year's model, right Ed Wimmer??!!!
The question here is not "why get a RoadID?" The question really becomes: "why would you NOT get one?" Safety is paramount. No matter if you're running, biking, skiing, golfing, or shooting a potato gun with your kids at the park. Safety is always first.
At the end of the day, you want to feel sure that you're doing everything in your power to not only stay fit, but to run smart. Do yourself a favor. Get a RoadID and be confident that G-d forbid you need an ID, RoadID has you covered. And plus, they look cool. Total street cred. People will see you wearing it and automatically thing, "whooooooa, there is one put-together heifer!"
And who doesn't want that? !
