About "Fill Your Own" Set of Ankle Weights Up to 5 lb (2.27 kg)

Do your feet always seem to rise above you when diving? Some Divers need to Compensate-the-Buoyancy of their Legs with Ankle Weights. Diving with Ankle Weights, Reduce Leg and Fin Buoyancy, Minimizes Back-Stress for a Safer, more Comfortable Dive, and Ankle Weights Keeps Fins-Submerged at the Surface and Add Stability during Underwater Projects such as Photography or Dive Instruction.

Ankle Weights are an Important-Part of a Diver's Total-Weighting-System. If your Legs are too high then there will be Increased Drag. When your Legs are to High this will Slow-you-Down and Cause-Fatigue. Correct your Position with Ankle Weights Many Divers, Especially Women, have Short Waists. The Weights in your BC or on your Weight Belt are closer to your head than they are on divers with longer waists. Therefore, the Weight, Push-your-Upper-Body Down and your Legs Up, causing unnecessary Drag, Ankle Weights will take some of this Weight Off-the-Waist Area and will move it down to the Ankles, putting your body in a Correct-Horizontal-Position.

Dry Suit Divers frequently require Ankle Weights because the Legs of a Dry Suit are Filled with Air. The result is the Legs want to Float-Up. Ankle Weights add Negative Buoyancy to the Ankles and help bring the Legs Down into a Correct-Horizontal-Position.

FILL YOUR OWN ANKLE WEIGHTS

THESE WOULD BE GREATLY IMPROVED WITH THE ADDITION OF A ZIPPER OUTSIDE THE VELCRO CLOSURE. I ONLY USE #9 LEAD SHOT FOR WEIGHT, AND THE VELCRO WILL OPEN ON TRANSPORT IF CARE IS NOT TAKEN, CREATING QUITE A MESS.

Good value

By

from Charlotte , NC, US

These worked pretty good. I put about 3 lbs of lead shot in each one. I wish the closure system was a little more solid for the shot. I just took a simple needle and thread and sewed mine shut. The Velcro seemed to hold ok, but I just wanted to firm it up a little. Very simple way to add some weight without bulk. Worked pretty good on the dive. Will keep using this item.

too short for neoprene drysuit

By

great to customize trim, but the provided velcro traps were too short to put around my neoprene drysuit with attached boots. I had to buy webbing to extend them. the straps were also attached to the pouch oddly, (not sewn to the end of the pouch) which makes the pouch flop around and protrudes about 2 inches, which gets really annoying when you are suited up trying to haul all your gear into/out of the dive site. That being said, you do not notice them at all when you are actually diving.

Great flexibility

Purchased to help wife's (new diver) "floaty" feet. Sand wasn't enough weight. Couldn't find lead shot in Cozumel. Purchased 26, 1 oz. lead fishing weight "eggs". Very easy to fine tune.

Questions about this item:

Shaun B  Hi, is it possible to insert a standard 1.5kg lead ingot? is there a picture of where the actual weights go. Thanks Shaun
PAUL M  Hi, I am happy to give any info I can but I am afraid it may not be much. I purchased these as a gift, so I have not actually used them, and I am not familiar with the size and shape of the 1.5kg lead ingot you are talking about. What I can tell you is that the pouch is about 6 INCHES long (you say potato, I say vodka :-) [kg/lb, cm/in] ), and about 2 inches tall. That vertical dimension is with the product FLAT, so remember as you spread the opening it becomes SHORTER and turns into more of a circle with a considerably smaller circumference. The Velcro opening is at the end of the pouch where the female buckle is and seems quite sturdy. Hope this helps. Paul
STEFAN S  I never did understand how you were supposed to fill these. I wound up cutting open a two pound soft weight, dividing the lead shot as best I could into two plastic zip lock bags, and wiggling the weights into the ankle bags. I don't bother wearing ankle weights any more; I guess I just don't need them.
ROBERT M  I don't know about a 1.5 kg ingot,it will fit a small bullet weight ,or slide on weight.There is a small Velcro tab at the end of the tube by the buckle.I put lead shot in my set,I wanted it to be more comfortable and bendable.
JOSEPH B  If it's an ingot that fits on a weight belt. No. This item is basically a neoprene tube 1.25" in diameter (4cm); One end is secured shut with velcro so you can pour in your lead shot... sort of like filling up a sock.
Shopper  Do you sell shot weight?
JOSEPH B  if you want loose shot, buy the size "soft weight" you want and cut it open with scissors.
LeisurePro S  We just have shot weight in pre-made weight pockets. Unfortunately, we don't sell bulk shot weight for melting.
Shopper  What is the length of this item when the buckle is closed?
LeisurePro S  They are adjustable from 11" to 15".
