    I have 2 pair of these - yellow 3.3# and blue 3.3#. The yellow ones have been performing very well for a couple years now, are very easy to use (especially for clipping onto an underweighted student's BC or tank valve). The blue ones also perform very well in the water, but: once out of the water, they drip and positively ooze black, leaded water. It's likely rather toxic, and before I realized it they had dripped everywhere, on everything. I only use them sparingly now, and once done I hang them outside of the rest of my gear. I also have and use the Sea Pearls brand, which I like and also work rather well.

      I use these with my drysuit to help keep my feet down. They are easy to snap on/off. My first pair lasted since 1988!!! with lots of dives on them.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              DESIREE B  I like the fact that these weights are solid instead of the adjustable type that don't go all the way from buckle to buckle
              Brandon R  i am 11 would these be good without a weight belt also can they go in an integrated bc ?
              ROBERT S  These would not be good for what you want. These work great if you need to add a small amount of weight to your lower body to help with body position. My wife uses these to help keep her feet poiunt down during her safety stops
              Shopper  What are the lengths for the regular and long? Hard to make a choice if you don't know the dimensions.
              LeisurePro S  Regular 11" long and Long 14" long and both will strech 4 inches longer
