Typically high quality of 3M product. STRONG packaging to insure sterility is maintained even with rough handling or laying in first aid kit in trunk or car or back pack.
All in package were well sealed. Opened one set to test and they are VERY adhesive to skin. Yes if you try this on your arm you will lose a tiny bit of hair! Hold well under warm running water too. They also flex properly with out “crinkling” while being VERY strong. You are not going to tear these, you will need scissors to cut them if you need to do so.
Remember they are ONLY for skin closure of small or shallow wounds and not a substitute for proper medical care for a more serious wound except in emergency and SHORT-TERM (few hours) first aid situations. Also remember these are NOT a bandage, they have no protective pad to keep out dirt or aid in hemostasis. They are ONLY wound closure strips. If if in a dirty environment you will need to not only clean wound as well as possible, put a protective sterile pad OVER the steri-strips and tape it.

Excellent Wound Closures – Highly Recommended
By C. F. Hill
These 3M “Steri Strip Skin Closures” are excellent for holding the edges of shallow wounds together and, importantly, did not irritate my very sensitive skin (3M adhesives seem to be the least reactive for me). These stick very well and hold up to sweat and water as well. After applying, I covered the wound site with a sterile non-stick pad and that worked nicely.
These are not for deep wounds, but do make a useful addition to an emergency kit when hiking or camping.

essential for a lightweight med kit
By Christopher D. Sutcliff
I keep three of these in my med kit for backpacking. Thin adhesive strips which can be used to close small wounds like a butterfly closure. I find them to stick better and contour to the skin better than butterfly closures especially on elbows and knees.
