Concept needs development...

 Rated 3.0 stars

From Bhodi Li


I got a kick out of the other reviews of this kit, but it goes to show how innovative and intuitive we, the consumers are. I think this is a good concept, but it needs work. Two schools of thought here: 1) Makes a good department issue or family handout when you don't know everyone's blood type. 2) As far as a personal purchase goes, there should be multiples of only one blood type to put all over your gear.
Solution: If you want to offer a better product, make versions for each type, and keep the assortment for gifts or Dept issue. They will cost more to manufacture, but they would sell! Thank you!
Also needs B types.

Why I'll Buy

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Todd


I recently bought a pair of Pursuit shoes. Each show has a small Velcro patch on the heel suitable for these tabs. So on one shoe goes my blood type, and on the other NKDA (no known drug allergies). Just an idea.

I only have 1 blood type.

Don't understand the criticism of the one patch per blood type thing. I only have 1 blood type and I'm pretty sure both my feet have the same type. I wear blood type on one boot and a NKDA on the other. Works for me!

I bought the range master shoes and I love them, but if I understand correctly I have to buy 2 of those to have my B+ on each shoe? So 28$ for 2 B+ patch and a bunch of bloodtype patch I will put in trash?
No thanks, sorry for the bad review I really like your products

good idea but probably going to be overlooked by most.
1.lots of people are allergic to sulfa medications so add this.
2.should be able to personalize a order to have way more than 1 of the desired tags.

Quality patch...

 Rated 3.0 stars

From Jay


...but selling a kit of one patch per blood type is kind of weird. Makes a great, tiny gift for your friends with different blood!

Get Smart - Donate - Family - Gift - Great Quality - Hard to Find

Too those who have only one blood type... Use your head... You can't think of anyone else, I've plans on giving several to family that have different blood types and DONATING the other ones to those that could need them... Great products thanks 5.11

What the............

 Rated 1.0 stars

From Darryl


Doesn't even make sense to an idiot.........I don't want a bunch of blood types that are of no consequence to me. I would however like several of my own to disperse throughout to minimize the overlook factor. Sorry, this is a no brainer and a no buy.

I only have ONE blood type...

 Rated 2.0 stars

From Murphy

from Denver

No issues with the quality/design of the product itself, but why can I only buy a set of different blood types, instead of a pack of my (one) personal blood type? I get it that selling one little patch may not be paying off business wise, but I'd be happy to buy several patches of the same bloodtype in a bundle (one patch on the vest, backpack, uniform shirt, etc.)

Good, but only one of each blood type

From BigJim

from Tampa, FL

The quality of the product is good, but the
lack of duplicates is not. There is only one of each in the kits, so for me I paid a lot more than I thought I would for only one O+ pack. The rest is a waste. I was hoping for at least two O+ patches. So I paid near $10 for one small patch.
