@Terrificli -- Why wouldn't anyone use micropore tape? Two reasons -- cost and convenience. Micropore tape costs considerably more than conventional bandages on a unit-by-unit basis.
Also, I like those all-one-bandages. You know, the kind that have the tape and the bandage all in one bandage. Just peel and stick, right? You have to build a bandage with micropore tape and a cotton ball or gauze pad or something. I prefer the simple method and I know I am no alone.
