    So I am having a small issue in that I am back to being a flyer and I wasn't as deaf as I was when I was a flyer before so wearing my hearing aids is probably a better idea seeing as last week was a bit confusing with out them on...has anyone had a flyer with hearing aids before/how did they keep it on? lol

    All I can come up with is a tiny bit of athletic tape to hold them securely. Awkward I know. And of course you would not want to obscure the hearing mics. If you could find some type of medical tape that was similar to your skin tone? I know they are very expensive so you need to keep them secure so they don't get stepped on. Good luck.

    Adding...maybe contact your hearing aid provider and ask what other extreme athletes do.

    I will try the clear surgical tape and just cut it into small strips...I saw another idea of double sided tape but if it gets hit by an elbow I know that ain't gonna do the trick! Lol

    Thanks guy for the ideas! I just wanna use whatever is less bulky :)
