Nexcare Bandages are very flexible and with six in the family we sure use them! I work outdoors in the summer and really need these bandages to endure water and dirt - they do. My kids use them for sport injuries and they last. The only problem I have is the edges tend to fray a bit and look messy, but you can trim with a scissors. They seem to breathe and not get sweaty underneath and they are a breeze to pull off with no ripping sensation. I do like the natural skin colour.
Ever since I started using medical tape for my cuts and injuries I really can't find myself recommending regular bandages anymore. At least these ones are cloth based, and not plastic-y, so they do adhere a bit better, but unless you're using it on a non-joint you're going to have a rough time with it sticking past a few washes - especially on your hands. Not a single type of bandage in this pack is any better than the rest (I don't even understand how some of them even work - there should be an instruction manual with pictures - since these aren't shaped quite the same way as regular bandages) and it's not any more sticky than regular bandages. I also have small fingers and that usually makes it hard to wrap a bandage around a finger since sometimes the tab will be longer than my finger's circumference and I can't put the pad on the injury (nor do I want something sticky on it). It's an alright product since it works like every other bandage out there, but as I said I've found better luck (especially with retaining stickiness) with using medical tape instead (even if I have to have something sticky on my injury).
I bought the 40 assortment box. They are supposed to be heavy duty yet they don't stick well. They are latex free yet it still irritates my skin with the flexible fabric. Not worth it!
