Into my review queue it went, and there it stayed for some time. Fast forward many weeks, and I reread the website. It makes lofty claims and, while I was still suspicious, I decided to see if the shirt actually DID improve my sleep. So, one night late spring, I pulled the review sample out of the drawer and put it on before heading to bed for the night.
Most days I don’t sleep particularly well and, when I wake up in the morning, I am remarkably stiff for the first twenty to thirty minutes. The first morning after sleeping in the Active Edge shirt, I found that I not only had slept better than usual, but I also had little to no morning stiffness. I assumed, however, that this was a case of the placebo effect.
So I slept another night in the shirt and had the same results. And I started to wonder… Is it possible that there actually IS something to the company’s claims? After a few more days with the same impact, I went to the company site and ordered two more of their products, a black nylon bracelet for $69.99 and a black nylon necklace for $69.99.
They were pricey, but I was actually starting to believe the claims made on the website. Both arrived a few days later. The necklace is a bit too thick and rigid for me to wear comfortably, but the bracelet was a different story. I began wearing it all day and sleeping in the Active Edge shirt at night, and I noticed a significant diminishing of the pain in my wrists during the day. And on the days when I have not worn the bracelet, a conscious choice to see if it made a difference, I’ve noticed a significant increase in stiffness and pain. Color me surprised.
Now look, I am totally open to the possibility that most of what I have experienced being largely the power of suggestion or the placebo effect. Still, since I feel better when I wear the bracelet and/or sleep in the shirt, I’m not going to argue.
Long story short, the company can add one more fan to their growing list of people who appreciate their products. But while I’m a fan, I make no claims to confirm the company promises. For that, you will have to try the products yourself. That’s easy since they offer a decent guarantee and, if you aren’t satisfied, you can return the products for up to 30 days.
We at Active Edge, strongly believe in the quality of our products. We want you to be 100 percent satisfied. Check your gear out once it arrives and if this is not the case, please contact our customer service team and we will make it right. We gladly accept exchanges or returns of unwashed, unworn or defective merchandise within 30 days of receiving your purchase.
I’m personally a fan, and I will keep wearing Active Edge’s products. In fact, since they make a dog collar, I’m going to see if I can get a sample of that for our new puppy who arrives later this week. Check them out here.
