Makers of the Ear Band-It have come out with a new ULTRA version of the popular swimming and bathing ear protector. The ULTRA version has been designed to incorporate larger ear flaps and a wider bridge at the forehead for increased coverage of the ear and overall better fit. Most importantly, it incorporates 100% neoprene material rather than the traditional blend with a special Grip-Tek neoprene inner lining, providing extra grip to minimize slipping during most types of water activity. As such, the new ULTRA Ear Band-It provides an improved grip but is not reversible like the original version.
The Ear Band-It ULTRA is available in seven colors and various sizes. Five of the seven colors are considered NEON and include blue, green, orange, pink and yellow, all of which are available in sizes Small, Medium, or Large. The other two colors include black or tan, both of which are only available in size Large. So, when ordering your Ear Band-It, make sure you clarify whether you are purchasing the original or the new ULTRA version as the colors are very different for each style. In addition, the ULTRA version is about $2 more.
