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.

Weights at the Cheapest Price

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.

Does the job.

By

These are easy to lid with weight, and the pocket is quite secure. The straps have a Velcro type fastener in addition to the buckle, so they don't loosen at all while diving. The only downside, is that since I only loaded one pound of weight into each, it tends to bunch up and isn't evenly distributed.

Fillable ankle weights

Great I have weights of various amounts in zip lock bags. Easy to adjust. Just change ziplock bag to new weight needed

Very good

Great if you're trying to reclaim McNutt ankle weights that wear out,.. or re-use sack weights you no longer need. Velcro buckle is particularly novel and permits solid micro-adjustments.

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.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

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.
GAIL/JEFFREY L  My wifes feet seem to want to float. Not to sure why, (probably not enough boobs). This does solve the feet above head problem.
Pavel R  Is the straps length adjustable?
KAY R  Yes. They are adjustable with Velcro straps. I have a couple of different pairs of ankle weights and these are by far the best.
SUSAN C  There is some limited adjustment to the click length allow the weight to be larger around. I am not sure if this answers your question.
DOUG M  No. There is no adjustability other than varying the amount of shot. The more shot added, the tighter they fit
PEGGY G  Yes
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.
Steve S  Yes, these can definitely work for exercise.
SHANE K  Yes, I think these ankle weights work great for exercise as well as diving. It doesn't take a lot of weight to make your workout harder. I purchased the five pound ankle weights, but only use three pounds of weight in them. I originally purchased the three pound version, but found them to be too small. As another person suggested, I placed my lead weight in plastic bags first and I think they work great.
LARRY M  Hello, they worked fine for, we use led shot.
STEVE S  I suppose so, But for working out why not go to a sports authority and buy regular work out ankle weights? The ability to fine tune the weight for good trim is the only reason for the adjustable pouches. Steve
HENRY L  The ankle weight suit my purpose of adding a small amount of weight to my legs to balance out my profile for spearfishing. I use lead washers strung together with mono line inside by weaving them in the correct fashion they lie flat and don't cut off my circulation. I have reservation about them working well as workout weight. The issue would be will they secure firmly enough against your ankles during a work out without flopping around. To tighten them enough to prevent the movement would incur discomfort. When I am diving I have 4mm dive boots on so the tension is padded. Bottom line I like the product but as workout weights I recommend a pass. Get a pair with lead shot in them and elastic bands. They will cost more than twice as much but be fit for your intended use.
DEBORAH C  I have only used these ankle weights while scuba diving, but I believe they would be fine for exercising. The velcro holds firmly and the weights don't move around on my ankles, even while I'm in the water. I opened a couple of soft scuba weight pouches and used the contents in these ankle weights. For optimum trim while diving, I only need 1 pound in each ankle weight.
GABRIELA L  They could. Depends how lose they'll be around your ankles. They would be lose around mine without my 7mm suit on.
