Fair enough. That wasn't cool.

It's a hollow complaint though. LifeAsRx is free to do as they wish, assuming of course that they don't have to get HQ's okay to market CF-related products. Why complain about it? Does the OP get onto a forum and complain about all of the other overpriced / toolish products that he sees?

I bought my Fran shirt directly from LifeAsRx at the Central Southern Texas Sectionals, and I saw firsthand how excited their customers were to buy the Hero shirt and memorialize these men. Maybe the shirt enrages the OP, but it gives joy to lots of other folks. Different strokes for different folks, I s'pose.

LifeAsRx is just providing a product to meet a demand. I have no issue with that. It's legal and doesn't hurt anyone.

Re: Life as Rx

There shirts appear to be cheaper than an Affliction shirt.

Re: Life as Rx

Maybe I'm a goof, but I understand completely why op is upset. That being said, I will probably buy the Hero's shirt, but won't wear it unless I'm doing a hero workout or have completed each of the Hero workouts listed as RX'd.

absolute ****.
my chief complaints:

1) over priced

2) Toolish. reminds me of affliction shirts

3) this is the absolute worst. The "Heroes" T-shirt. this enrages me. it is basically just a shirt with the names of fallen soldiers printed on it, and sold for someone's personal profit. this exploitation of fallen patriots is sickening. why not leave the names off and just have a soldier on the shirt? oh yeah, because the names on the shirt leave people who arent "in the know" scratching their heads wondering who these men are, and makes you look super tough and mysterious, which brings me back to #2- it's toolish, because having names of people you never knew printed on your shirt because you think you are sweet, is just lame.
BUT HOLD THE PHONE! Willie, they are donating $5 dollars to the wounded warrior project for every shirt sold! they arent exploiting them for personal profit, they are doing it for our troops! how noble of their donation! Wrong! they charge the consumer $5 more for this one product compared to the other shirts (brings me back to #1). so you just paid their noble cause, while they get the props. they probably get a tax write-off for this as well.

@Life as Rx: you are a disrespectful company with horrible business ethics. i could have let 1 and 2 slide, but you have crossed the line.
1. You don't have to buy it, if it's overpriced.

2. Then don't buy it.

3. As an active duty Soldier, I really don't see you're beef with the shirt, so because I didn't know another Soldier I can't wear the shirt? Honestly, it's better than the other half of society who cares more about what happened to Brittany Spears, than about people serving overseas dying. Who thinks they are macho wearing a shirt that has fallen Soldiers on it anyway...I would like to meet that person.

This could put an end to the t-shirt in question, as well as the official CF T-Shirts.

Re: Life as Rx

I have and wear Affliction shirts, although not as often as I did before they went mainstream. Guess I am a tool.

Re: Life as Rx

Jamie, do what I would do to those marathoners...Crush, maim, kill all of them in your way and then go drink some milk with a side of bacon so you never would get locked in such a hellhole.

As for LifeasRX. One of my friends is a close friend of one of the people at LifeasRX. Good people.

On a note, it's not just them but CFHQ markets their attire as overpriced as are many CFAffiliate attire. Part of this may be due to the fact that affiliates typically only buy things in small batches, but if they notice HQ is selling them for x amount, why shouldn't they?

Re: Life as Rx

Bought stuff from them - good guys! Lost a t-shirt in transit (within USA) and they re-sent to Australia (my home) free of charge. Would definitely buy from them again.
