I've been on the pod for about a year and a half now. Like for you, the demo pod didn't even last 3 hours before I ripped it clean off. I put it on my outer thigh then ripped it right off the adhesive when I sat into my computer chair. It got caught up on the armrest and, poof. The first few go rounds with the real pod weren't much better. I ripped one off against a door frame, a couple came off during jiutitsu training, got one caught up taking my shirt off, just to name a few.
I started using Opsite Flexifit as extra security against my clumsiness and it worked really well. I saved a ton of pods with that stuff. After awhile, I just got used to moving with the pods on. I gave myself a few extra inches around doorways, was extra careful putting on a taking off clothes, and so on. Now, the only time I'll use Opsite is when I know I'm going to be abusing a pod. So, not only am I losing fewer pods through accidents, actually none in the last six months, but I've actually become less clumsy around the house.
