    Exactly what I needed

    Works great for me but I've got skinny ankles. Not a lot of room to adjust outward. Needs another inch or so to the adjustment strap.

    The neoprene wetsuit I use makes me positively buoyant. I need something to hold down my legs to avoid having my feet always be above my head during a dive. I feel like this will eventually work if I keep practicing using it. The sand seemed to wash away upon first use but I squeezed it in tighter and it seems to be improving; I have yet to go again to try it.

      The neoprene wetsuit I use makes me positively buoyant. I need to offset that upward force with this item to avoid having my feet be above my head for most of the dive. I need practice with it to avoid letting sand whisk away from its mouth. I'm sure it would be a better product with a Youtube demo.

              Great, light product to travel with. Upon arrival, we went to the beach and filled them with sand. We didn't have a scale, but I suspect they only weighed around 1 lb each. We used these for cage diving with Great Whites. Could have used a heavier substance to fill them with for this purpose.

              Easy on and off, and while I thought the sand might wash away, the velcro closure did do a good job of holding it. I think to get up to 3 lbs you would need either lead or steel shot or some other form.

                My wife needed ankle weights because her fins are positively buoyant and she is tiny, but we couldn't find any weights light enough to do the job. These "fill your own" weights were PERFECT for us, she ended up using 1 1/4 pounds per leg after dialing in her buoyancy on several dives. They are well made and after 30 dives no problems have occurred!

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                JORDAN G  Fill your own weight allows me to fine tune my trim. My rock boots are bouyant so I need ankle weights.
                Shopper  Would these work for exercise? Aqua fill ankle weights have not gotten good reviews.
                RENAE B  The closure is made of velcro. For diving, I fill my ankle weights with sand. I am not sure how well that would work for exercise especially if jumping, running, etc is involved. I guess it would all depend on what you are going to use for weight.
                Shopper  what do you fill it with?
                VERONICA D  I have only used these once and I filled them with sand.
