Whether you've already jumped on board the silicone ring train or are still a silicone skeptic, there are three major issues with these bands of rubber to contend with. Read on for the 3 reasons most silicone rings suck and what can be done about them!
Not that you'd ever do something so bizarre, but imagine wearing a tight rubber shirt on a hot day. Yep, you'd be hot, sweaty, and unbelievably uncomfortable to say the least. So why do that to your poor finger?
Silicone is nonporous and wearing it tightly around your finger will cause it to sweat. If the ring is not removed regularly, your finger will start to prune. The skin will turn white, and eventually your finger could get infected. Gross, right?
Active rings were created for people who work, play, and live life on the edge, so wearing a bulky ring is just asking for trouble. Typical silicone rings are too bulky, catch on everything, and have a tendency to rub adjacent fingers raw. No bueno!
Although it seems counterintuitive, a silicone ring's most important job is to break (only in compromising situations, of course). Whether you're climbing a rock wall or lifting weights at the gym, silicone rings are designed to stretch or break to protect your finger if something goes wrong. And we all know that if you're an active person, something will go wrong eventually!
The whole purpose of these rings is to break when you need them to, however most brands don't offer any type of extended warranty for their silicone rings! Why would you buy a ring without a lifetime warranty if it's likely to be unwearable one day?
Have you had these problems? Our founder, Peter Goodwin experienced them first hand and they didn't sit well. As an Alaskan bush pilot and adventure lodge owner, Peter resolved to change things with some real solutions for his active lifestyle.
"When active rings first came out, I loved the idea! I hadn't imagined ever owning a band that would be able to handle my lifestyle, so I ordered one right away… and then another one, followed by brand after brand.
After trying them all, I realized there were ZERO rings on the market that were actually functional for me. I couldn't be the only one, so I went to the drawing board to tacked each issue one at a time."
