Powerflex is the newest and most versatile recent development in athletic tape. Because it does not have adhesive, it does not stick to skin and can be used in place of prewrap, but because it sticks to itself it can be used to hold gauze pads and bandages in place. Powerflex is often used in medical (and veterinary) settings to hold catheters or IVs in place. Also, because of the wide variety of colors it is often used for wrapping wrists and equipment in team colors or for causes (i.e. pink for breast cancer awareness). The 1.5" tape is ideal for smaller areas such as wrists or hands. Although Powerflex does not provide the support of a typical athletic tape, it is ideal for situations where flexibility is more important than support. The unique self-adhesive design is strong and will generally need to be cut off like typical athletic tape.
Really like this--it adheres well; it's easy to apply, to control tension/tightness, and to remove. I first ordered this brand of tape in 2015, and I appreciate that the price is 25% lower now (July 2019) since most everything else I order is more expensive. I don't go through this quickly, and there's never been any product deterioration over time. In a pinch, it's done double duty as a trail-marking tape, too.
