Active Edge Received Great Review on Gear Diary!

Active Edge Technology is available as an add-on option for all Survival Straps products.  Below is an excerpt from a great review on Gear Diary. 

A Skeptics review of Active Edge by Dan Cohen.

When I first heard about Active Edge, I was skeptical. Carly had written about them some time ago, and her review left me curious. When I was offered an Active Edge shirt to try, I wasn’t sure what my experience might be. This post holds my subjective thoughts on the product.

As someone who deals with Rheumatoid Arthritis, my inflammatory disease is largely under control, but it has left me with a fused right wrist. Despite the collections of medications I take to control it, frequent swelling my ankles and hands. Active Edge claims to help with that inflammation. This is achieved by Active Edge products being embedded with a proprietary electromagnetic frequency technology specifically geared to fight inflammation……. 

……….Thus far I have no doubt this review sounds like an infomercial for Active Edge products. I’m not aiming for that, but all of that information was necessary for me to explain why, when I read the website after receiving a $64.99 review sample shirt, I became suspicious and was slow to review the product.

Into my review queue it went, and there it stayed for some time. Fast forward many weeks, and I reread the website. It makes lofty claims and, while I was still suspicious, I decided to see if the shirt actually DID improve my sleep. So, one night late spring, I pulled the review sample out of the drawer and put it on before heading to bed for the night.

Most days I don’t sleep particularly well and, when I wake up in the morning, I am remarkably stiff for the first twenty to thirty minutes. The first morning after sleeping in the Active Edge shirt, I found that I not only had slept better than usual, but I also had little to no morning stiffness. I assumed, however, that this was a case of the placebo effect.

So I slept another night in the shirt and had the same results. And I started to wonder… Is it possible that there actually IS something to the company’s claims? After a few more days with the same impact, I went to the company site and ordered two more of their products, a black nylon bracelet for $69.99 and a black nylon necklace for $69.99.

They were pricey, but I was actually starting to believe the claims made on the website. Both arrived a few days later. The necklace is a bit too thick and rigid for me to wear comfortably, but the bracelet was a different story. I began wearing it all day and sleeping in the Active Edge shirt at night, and I noticed a significant diminishing of the pain in my wrists during the day. And on the days when I have not worn the bracelet, a conscious choice to see if it made a difference, I’ve noticed a significant increase in stiffness and pain. Color me surprised.

Now look, I am totally open to the possibility that most of what I have experienced being largely the power of suggestion or the placebo effect. Still, since I feel better when I wear the bracelet and/or sleep in the shirt, I’m not going to argue.

Long story short, the company can add one more fan to their growing list of people who appreciate their products. But while I’m a fan, I make no claims to confirm the company promises. For that, you will have to try the products yourself. That’s easy since they offer a decent guarantee and, if you aren’t satisfied, you can return the products for up to 30 days.

We at Active Edge, strongly believe in the quality of our products. We want you to be 100 percent satisfied. Check your gear out once it arrives and if this is not the case, please contact our customer service team and we will make it right. We gladly accept exchanges or returns of unwashed, unworn or defective merchandise within 30 days of receiving your purchase.

I’m personally a fan, and I will keep wearing Active Edge’s products. In fact, since they make a dog collar, I’m going to see if I can get a sample of that for our new puppy who arrives later this week. Check them out here.

What I Like: My experience actually lives up to the claims made by the company on the product pages

What Needs Improvement: Company claims scientific studies but bases it on just 2500 people; Items are pricey

Survival Straps Backs the Blue & Red

Support our Law Enforcement and Firefighters!

On 9/11, America lost 343 firefighters and 60 policemen. That doesn't count all of the first responders who currently suffer or have died since from 9/11 related illnesses, and all those who have been wounded or lost in the line of duty. At Survival Straps®, we believe in giving our full support to our first responders. 

Today, Survival Straps® adds our newest support product:  Back the Blue & Red. This product shows the strength of the partnership between law enforcement and firefighters, and allows you to show your support for both.  

We support our law enforcement and firefighters because they believe in America, and have unwavering and selfless passion to help serve our families and our communities. They put their lives at risk EVERY DAY. When we run from danger, they run towards it to help us, knowing that it may cost them their lives. We thank God every day for these brave men and women, 

Get yourself or someone you love a Back the Blue & Red Survival Bracelet™, Key Fob, or Neck ID Lanyard, and wear it proudly to show your support of America’s law enforcement officers and firefighters.   Please get involved in supporting your local law enforcement and firefighters. It does not have to be complicated. Drop cookies off at your local police station or firehouse. Donate to your local police station or firehouse’s charity. Pay for lunch when you see them at a restaurant and leave them a little note of encouragement. Even something as simple as stopping to shake their hand and say ‘Thank You for serving our community’ can go a long way to encourage them and really make a difference.  We all must stand together as Americans to support these brave men and women. 

Back the Blue & Red products can be found in both the Survival Straps® Law Enforcement and Firefighter Collections.  Visit www.survivalstraps.com
