These are great! The only thing better are the Activ Flex finger wraps but they seem to be discontinued.
I really like Band Aid Activ Flex products for finger injuries that I worry a lot about getting dirty or bumping around.
Got a pretty nasty cut on my finger just before I was going on vacation last year. I used these and barely had to worry about my finger the whole time. Plus it healed quickly with no scarring.
I'm currently healing another nasty cut on the end of my thumb and am ever so grateful for this great product. They keep the wound totally clean, are much more convenient than regular band aids because you don't have to change them daily, promote speedier healing, and even relieve/prevent pain. They're like a second, padded skin over the injury and make the area much less sensitive to being bumped around... a must for hand injuries, especially.
Another wonderful thing is that they're totally non-irritating. Regular adhesive bandages irritate me terribly and itch like the dickens, especially after using them in the same area for a few days. These don't bother my skin at all.
At first glance, I feared that these might just be a gimmick but they're honestly fabulous.

Not quite as good as they claim

You will likely like these better than the regular bandages but I think they should stay on better for the price.

      Comments about Band-Aid Activ-Flex Premium Adhesive Bandages, Regular, 10 ea:

      Tried to use it on an abrasion on the palm of my hand. First of all, the product was way smaller than I anticipated from the size of the packaging and the picture of the product on the box. Size of bandage itself covers about the area of a dime. Adhesive area around the bandage is only a few millimeters.

      Adhesive is not sufficient at all. I could never get the bandage to stick to my skin. It also doesn't seem to really be all that flexible - but that is kind of irrelevant if it doesn't stick in the first place.

      Bandage lies so flat and close to the skin that there is no room to put any ointment on the wound before applying the bandage - it leaks out making the poor adhesive qualities non-existent.

      Maybe the worst product I've ever purchased. I switched back to just regular band-aids and they worked just fine.

      Comments about Band-Aid Activ-Flex Premium Adhesive Bandages, Regular, 10 ea:

      I see patients in a clinic and wash my hands at least 40-50 times per day. I use these band-aids for the cracks I develop on my dry hands, or any other finger wounds, and they stay on for about half a day (sometimes all day) through all that washing and alcohol-based hand rinse. No other band-aid comes close to this. I would use caution on a deeper wound, because the central part of the bandaid gets sticky by the end of the day and could stick to freshly healing skin and remove it, when you really want that new tissue to stay in place.

                  I have walked seven 60-mile events. I am also a soccer ref and work 12-hr shifts on my feet. Needless to say, between training for the walks, the actual events, and all the other walking and running I do, I sometimes get blisters. These bandages are GREAT and they stay in place even in the shower. I feel immediate relief when I apply them, then they cushion the blister so that it no longer hurts. I highly recommend them!

                      Being a fortunate survivor of severe trauma I've had the unfortunate experience of years of wound care. I've probably tried all manner of wound care material there is. Band Aid produces the very best in adhesive strips in general. This line is superior - it is totally water tight, flexes with you like a second skin, and will remain on for several days locking in necessary moisture and maintaining a quarantined environment to facilitate healing. I would not use this on wet wounds - could macerate. But on wounds that are almost dry this is absolutely the best - guarantees the home-run hassle-free.
