ID tags or bands
Anyone use an ID tag, band or similar when out riding? Realised today that when I’m out, even though I mostly have a phone with me, then there is no way to identify who I am (my phone is PIN protected due to work security requirements so you can’t get into it and find an ICE number).
Road ID is most obvious solution, but I’ve also found Vital ID where you can write the details yourself.
Any other solutions?

piece of laminated paper in your bag? Name tag in your undies?
I’m not sure a special product is needed as a solution. If you have any special medical requirements like allergies, diabetes etc. then maybe carry one but again, I’m not sure how much attention doctors in A and E would pay to blood type etc. and would treat you as every other casualty.Posted 5 years agoBristolPabloMember
I have one from http://www.iceid.com which was pricey (£21) but i like it and its well made. It ahs space for 6 lines so a few phone numbers, name etc. I put my blood type on there too, and whilst i appreciate that the paramedic/hospital would do a test first to confirm before anything serious, putting infomration like allergies etc on it is important as the first on the scene will check for ICE tags now they are becoming more popular.Posted 5 years agoSuggseyMember
Used to wear a medi tag ID bracelet as I am diabetic/asthmatic and on a stack of meds. Trouble with the metal ones is that they can be a pain, literally are super cold in really sub zero temps, leave filthy blackmarks round your wrists but most of all, everytime your meds get changed or added to you have to update the strip of paper inside and its full!!Posted 5 years ago
I have just seen the rubber medi bands and may just buy one of those and the indellible pen that you write on it with just the basics. To be honest everyone that I ride with (I think ) knows I am a sickly child and that I always have emergency stuff in my pack. I would therefore recommend the rubber ID bracelets over metal bits and bobs.
