#1.3M Nexcare Waterproof Clear Bandages
If you want the best waterproof bandages, we think the 3M Nexcare Waterproof Clear Bandages are the way to go. These bandages really stand out above the competition in terms of staying on longer.
The bandages are also quite flexible in our opinion, so they don’t just pop off when rubbed against on when placed on joints and moving areas. They are also pretty darn good value for the money.

#1.3M Nexcare Waterproof Clear Bandages
We consider the 3M Nexcare to be the best waterproof bandages in the industry if you want a very breathable adhesive that just simply does a good job of staying on. We would say its standout feature is that it simply stays on longer than the others. So basically it sticks better and does fall off due to water, dirt, or minor abrasions.
Additionally, the seal on this adhesive is quite flexible, yet vacuum sealing in your wounds. This also means that you can seal around joints and areas that move without fearing that they will just fall off. Finally, we really like how it leaves a minimal adhesive residue on the skin when you remove it. We can’t say the same about other brands.
#2.Band-Aid Brand Tough-Strips Waterproof
For those who are looking for the best waterproof bandages, we think the Band-Aid Brand Tough-Strips are a great option. These bandages are pretty heavy-duty and are 100% waterproof. In terms of protection and keeping water from coming in, we think the Band-Aid Tough Strips really stand out from the rest of the competition.
They are advertised to be twice as strong as regular waterproof bandages and we definitely agree here. The only issue here is that they are not that flexible, which makes them tear off easily. The solution around this is to put a cross-stitch double layer on it. Or just tried avoiding hinge areas where they are susceptible to a lot of movement.
#3.All-Health Antibacterial Waterproof Bandage
We really like the All-Health Antibacterial Waterproof Bandage and think it is the best waterproof bandage if you want an ultra-clear and highly breathable bandage set. Perhaps the standout feature of these bandages is that they are pretty much clear and invisible. So if you apply it right, they can pretty much be unnoticeable.
Also, the water protection is not bad, and we find the comfort level to be phenomenal. With these bandages on, you don’t even feel like you are wearing adhesives at all. It is nice to know that the All-Health Bandages also have non-stick pads that are coated with Benzalkonium Chloride, which is designed to kill bacteria and prevent infections.
#4.Care Band Waterproof Adhesive Bandages
Next, we have the Care Band Waterproof Adhesive Bandages, which is a great solution for those who are on a budget. These bandages are latex free and each bandage is tax colored with standard measurements. In terms of being waterproof, they worked just fine and they stay on even while getting wet, in the pool or in the rain.
These bandages are pretty durable as well and definitely get the job done without falling off easily or tearing apart if scrubbed. Although it is definitely a bit of a lesser-known brand compared to the other top brands out there, it does not mean the quality is any different.
#5.Band-Aid Brand Water Block Plus
Lastly, we have the Band-Aid Brand Water Block Plus, which is a more flexible toned-down version of their Tough-Strips product. It has a nice and flexible four-sided adhesive to make sure your wound stays dry, even during contact sports and in areas that have a lot of movement.
This means that you can easily attach this to joints and muscles without the fear of them falling off when there is extreme and sudden movements. Although the bonding power is not as good as the Tough-Strips, it is more designed for flexibility and areas in your body that experience lots of movement.
