Just a couple of quick comments mainly to flag up what I think is a huge problem with this resistance band: the fabric covering to the elastic band can be a real problem in preventing the band from being stretched. Basically, the fabric covering itself is not elastic but rather is a non elastic cloth which, whilst concertinaed to simulate "give", is far too easily snagged for example when using your feet to anchor the band. So - both feet on the band with a handle held in each hand and only the left side can be raised above stomach height. This is because the non elastic cloth has stretched (or rather concertinaed out) to its maximum and prevents one side from moving further! This is, to my mind, a really serious and certainly very irritating design flaw and one that will probably prompt me to send the resistance "tube" back to Amazon.

The other problem is that Adidas has seen fit (no pun intended!) to omit any mention of the pounds/kg resistance that its three levels of "Tube" offer. A shot in the dark and my best guess is that Level 3 is offering about 8kg of resistance.

Edit: the hard outer shell at the *bottom* of the handles - where the rope connects with the handles - makes resistance squats painful because the hard shell pushes in to the shoulder. I've had to use a towel around the shoulder to stop the hard shell from digging in to flesh. This is just plain and simple shockingly bad design on the part of Adidas. There are far, far better (and cheaper) bands out there. Avoid.

I bought level 3 and let's just say it's not long enough... I have an average height and arm length, maybe I'm just doing the wrong sort of exercise?! I place the middle of the power tube underneath my feet and try to raise each side sideways to work my shoulders.

I have been looking for a resistance band for some time now and wanted one that would provide the right resistance for me. I wanted a resistance tube that offered heavy resistance and one that i didnt have to change the bands.

The quality of this product is very good indeed, but maybe the handles could have been made from solid plastic like my previous ones.
Apart from that they do the job as I wanted and seem like they will last for years.

Good and strong tube.
Has been very useful for exercises.
Gym goers or very strong exercise fanatics might need stronger or 2 or more tubes.
Good for toning and strengthening the tendons and ligament.
also good when travelling as easy to carry in a hand bag and with a door anchor makes it into a complete or almost a complete gym replacement

Good bit of kit. My only, TINY gripe would be the resistance can seem uneven at times due to the protective cover, but easily rectified by adjusting left or right.

No information on resistance level in terms of weight it provides, so I chose level 2. Feels like it is more than 6kg on each side when doing double hand lifts stepping on the middle of the cord.
Overall make-quality is fine.

I am a new mother and housewife and it is very difficult for me to join the gym at this time. I been searching around for good resistant band and I finally found it! This really is a good alternative to using weights/dumbbells. Simply a wonderful addition to my workouts. I would recommend this product! A+++++++++++
