U-Tag Ice Review

U-Tag Ice Dog Tags
U-Tag Ice

Motorcycling and danger go hand in hand. No two ways around it, no matter how careful we are and how much protective gear we wear, there is always an inherent danger in riding a motorcycle. Whether it is jumping a motocross bike 30 feet in the air or dragging your knee at the road race track or just commuting to work, accidents happen and people get hurt. The key to limiting those injuries is being prepared. And now there is an all-new line of medical related, fashion-friendly gear on the market and it’s called U-Tag Ice.

Available in either a dog tag necklace or a credit card that fits in your wallet, the U-Tag features a small, foldable USB drive, to which you upload all your medical information. This allows medical personal to access your entire medical history if you are unconscious or unable to speak to them, thus providing the information needed to give you the best possible medical care. Not to mention it looks just plain cool in the dog tag format, or is as easy to put in your wallet as a credit card.


U-Tag Ice Credit Card
We have had the U-Tag Ice for several weeks now and are extremely impressed. To load your information you simply plug the USB end of the device into your computer and fill out the form which pops up, being sure to save the information when you are done. It’s that simple. Then just wear it/carry it whereever you go, especially when you are riding, and you will be that much safer. The dog tag version has become a part of my everyday life. I wake up and automatically put it around my neck as I leave the house each morning, no matter what I am doing. It looks great, never gets in the way, and is very easy to use. They even went so far as to engrave the MotoUSA logo on one of the tags, making it that much better looking, an option which is available to anyone at only a fractional price increase. For this, and for advancing rider safety, the U-Tag Ice hands down gets the MotoUSA Seal of Approval.

Hi Stash. I am in the UK and have heard about UTAG for some time. I take mine with me all the time. Your ending "unless you are in pieces, then of course they won't need the info" altough we don't want to think it will happen to us, they do need that information to contact your loved ones.

http://www.utagice.com/News.html Have a look at the guy in Germany, he was glad he had a Utag! If you look it translates into different languages as well, now thats cool. I'm having mine engraved as well, so my basic details are there as soon as it is found! Its a really cool idea.

"Sydney Gato" Thank you. I have just ordered one, it is a great idea, better than stuffing your pockets with bits of laminated paper, hey look Sydney there is an advantage already. So simple (like Sydney), have a look at their website it is being used in Europe by emergency personnel already. I do not think I like the tattoo, do you have to turn your tattoo into a bird if your condition changes?
Stash -U-Tag ICE  December 31, 2008 06:48 PM
A better proposition to inform emergency personnel of medical conditions is to have the info tattooed on your body (chest - arm, etc...personal preference). If you are unconcious, the first place they will go to is either your wrist, neck or chest...and bingo...info immediately available, which can never be forgotten, lost, stolen, broken in the crash, or otherwise, unless you are in pieces, then of course they won't need the info.
Sydney Gato -lows = none?  December 30, 2008 05:25 PM
How about requires emergency personnel to have a computer capable of reading the device AND take the time to find the tag, figure out how to read the data (no one but a complete idiot allows autorun), and transfer it to doctors and other medical facility staff to be re-entered once a trauma patient arrives. Is there a single advantage over a clearly laser-printed and laminated 3" x 5" paper record that can be had for maybe a dime cents? Heck--throw in an extra dozen to put in every pocket and storage crevice on your bike and tank bag and you are barely over a buck. This has got to be the one of the most stupid and over exposed ideas in history--congratulations for contributing to the problem.
