Used widely as a sports compression bandage and in equestrianism & animal first aid, these bandages stick extremely well to themselves, but not to skin, or more importantly hair or fur. The material has great elasticity and is lightweight & durable. It can also be torn by hand- for those occasions when scissors are scarce! They can be used to secure hot/cold packs or dressings in place. As they offer variable levels of support, they make a great compression bandage too.
