This website has some nice looking ones

Think more for those with medical conditions rather than general id as bought one or my friend's daughter who is diabetic

Roadid looks good - anyone bought anything else from them - high vis stuff etc? Had to wear my reflective top to work this week - left at 6.45 am and still dark!

Road ID has shipped - will report on quality when it gets here!

I was advised to get a Medic Alert medallion when my pencillin allergy was first identified; the good thing is that only your name and allergy are shown and other details are obtained by calling a phone number.

The RoadID site actually gives a good run down on what details are actually needed on any form of ID you may be carrying. Name (obviously) year of birth (don't need the exact date), city (don't need your full address), then a couple of contact numbers and then a list of any medical conditions that ambulance people should need to know about. They also give you a list of the know abreviations for certain conditions.

You don't need your full address or date of birth as that isn't needed for treating you on the side of the road, an approximate idea of age though from year of birth is sufficient. Your name, city and contact numbers will be more than enough for them to figure out exactly who you are when they get you to hospital.

The RoadID ones also have the option of paying them a yearly fee to have all your details held on their website, and only accessible to someone who telephones or logs into their site. Not completely thief-proof of course, but having to call/log in would probably deter most casual thieves.

I can't remember for sure, but I think the fee for that is about $10 per year. Also gives you the ability to log in to the RoadID site yourself and update/change details as required, for example if you're going on a business trip or a holiday you can temporarily change your address, contact details etc or put on the address of the hotel you're staying at, that sort of thing...

I really like the ICE Gems ones that Crimson mentioned at the top of the page. I've been thinking about those for a while. They're nice enough to wear all the time - which I should but don't.

Received my Road ID bracelet last week. Very good service and cost around $15 including postage.

I went on a First Aid Refresher course this week and we were shown several examples of medical alert bracelets/ watches etc. I have to say that before the refresher course, if I was dealing with someone who had collapsed, then I wouldn't have given the majority of them a second glance because they looked so much like normal jewellery and would possibly have overlooked important medical information.
