Waterproof? Oh yeah! Right before a dive vacation to the Caribbean I was out riding my horse in the woods and didn't watch where I was going (neither was my horse). I got jabbed in the thigh by a dead branch 1.5 inches in diameter. It went in 2.5 inches deep (ER visit – uh huh). I knew it wouldn't heel in time for my trip, and I was hoping these bandages would be waterproof enough to protect the wound on my vacation. Wow! These worked great. Every morning I cleaned the area to be bandaged and applied the bandage per the instructions (I also shaved the area to make sure nothing interfered with the bandage). Each day for 7 days I did 2 one-hour dives to depths of up to 90 feet, spend the afternoon in the pool enjoying mojitos, then danced the night away. Not one time did the bandage fail. It stayed on 100%, and kept the wound clean and dry. Impressive!

      Comments about Nexcare Waterproof Clear Bandage, Elbow and Knee, 8 ea:

      I keep these in my first-aid kit at all times. The size is good. The important thing- they stay on. Also, they are lower-profile than the more "famous" bandage brand. I love that they're clear, except for where your injury is. They last through hand-washings, showers, etc., if applied properly. Really good product that can be hard to find in brick-and-mortar stores. Beware that these are not extremely absorbent, so if it's a bad cut, the worst of the bleeding needs to stop before one of these is applied.

      I have to use medicated pain patches, and this product securely holds the patch in place. Also, upon removal of the product, there never is an adhesive residue (which collects dirt) left on my skin.

        Comments about Nexcare Waterproof Clear Bandage, Elbow and Knee, 8 ea:

        I have sensitive skin (to adhesives) and I am on Plavix so bleeding is an issue. Always carry Nexcare bandages because I can use for long periods and they are less irritating to the skin than any other bandages tried. Great at keeping wounds clean and dry. Even take a shower with them.

        Comments about Nexcare Waterproof Clear Bandage, Elbow and Knee, 8 ea:

        These bandages are great for holding fentanyl patches in place, & they'd be good for any other medicinal patch, too. I have chronic pain & must keep a waterproof dressing on my "pain med patch" all the time. Nexcare bandages, especially in this size, work well for me. They are pricey, but so is having your patch come off in the shower. (Note: fentanyl is the generic name for Duregesic patches.)

          The Nexcare line of adhesive bandages is far superior to any other I have used. This is not surprising considering they are a 3M/ Scotch product. After all who knows more about adhesives?

            My boyfriend burned the top of his foot, on the arch, and while the wound healed he needed to keep it dry and protected. This did the trick just fine -- really waterproof, so he could shower, and provided excellent protection while wearing socks and shoes. The clear bandage is easy to apply, and thin enough so as not to rub against socks and doesn't come unrolled. Also, the clear part makes the bandage almost unnoticeable. We love this brand!
