Here's a little more information on tape (Zonas, Coach or Sport Athletic--all by Johnson and Johnson). I went on a seek and inform journey. And here's what I found out.
I don't know how anyone keeps this straight. But Amazon carries as Zonas porous tape 1", 2", 3" and I think 4". They carry what they call Coach Sports tape by Johnson and Johnson in 1-1/2 inch. And in another listing they carry what they call Zonas Sports tape in 1-1/2 inch. You have to be sure what size package you are ordering because the pricing varies a lot. And then sometimes they have something on sale--so watch for that too.
And because the last time I ordered UniSolve I got it through Walmart I found it was less expensive (and I was ordering three bottles so it also was good for free shipping) I got it in one day--I'm in Portland, it came from a medical supply house in Washington State) If you look at Walgreens stuff on line again, I caution you to make sure exactly how many to a pack and pricing almost always is listed as per roll. Some packs are 2 rolls, some are 4 and some are 36. Evidently Walgreen has chosen to solve the confusion between Zonas and Coach/Sport by referring to all of the tapes by Johnson & Johnson that are porous, low tack tapes as Zonas and then sometimes calling them Zonas porous medical tape (as opposed to the ones they call Zonas porous Coach/Sports tape. But they carry the same widths that Amazon lists (1", 2", 3" and 4") plus 1-1/2" which is easily divided into 3/4" by tearing it lengthwise and is listed with them as Zonas Sport tape/porous.
I am not an investigative reporter and have never even played one on television.
And about the price on that roll of tape--I also checked prices on various places for a variety a sizes and the prices are all over the place. I'm apparently a Luddite in more ways than just computers.
But my bottom line in all of this is that I still prefer 3/4" tape for dealing with ears so I guess I'll just go on buying the Coach/Sport/Zonas by Johnson & Johnson and splitting it into 3/4 inch stuff.
Okay dokay--over and out...
