Deserves no stars,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: York Soft Ankle/Wrist Weights x 2 (Sports)
This is a poorly made pair of ankle/wrist weights and I will think twice before purchasing the York range again. Firstly though they are sold as wrist or ankle weights these are far too big for both. I do not have exceptionally slim ankles or wrists yet even at the tightest fastening these were sliding unacceptably on my ankles and as for wearing them on my wrists- no chance.
I can put up if I have to especially as it's not easy finding 2kg (each) ankle weights - at least on Amazon.
So I wore two pairs of socks for thickness and carried on. Well 3.5 weeks later the stitching has come off and I am vacuuming bits of filling metal off my bedroom floor. Luckily I have no pets who might have eaten these. The pieces are so tiny (and hard to see on my carpet) that it took a few days for me to notice.
I am a little cross with myself because when the weights first arrived I did hesitate on noticing how thin and flimsy the fabric holding the 'weight pieces' was particularly in comparison to my trusty Everlast 1kg ankle/wrist weights which have been going strong for about 2 years now with nary a defect or tear. But silly me, I decided to give these ones a chance.
Well I am asking for a refund and will be sending these badly made weights right back to Amazon.
