the problem was very simple; at the second time of using these ankle weights for a light jog both weights split open at the seems causing the fragmented weights inside to go every where including filling up my shoe. I fail to see how these could be suitable unless you will only be walking or cycling with them.

I walk 5 miles approx 4 - 7 times per week, and have been using ankle weights for years. I started at 1lb per leg, progressing up to the current 4lb per leg. Whilst I would not recommend going straight for this weight until you have built up your muscles (for fear of knee damage), I have noticed a huge difference in the tone of my leg/buttock muscles with the heavier 4lb weights - no mean feat for my age when nature is doing its best to decrease the tone by the minute. At first, I struggled a little with the sheer weight of them - in fact I struggled to carry the box through when it was delivered. When I took them off, I felt like gravity had suddenly decreased by 50% and walked like I had drunk way too much alcohol. However, I have soon got used to them and do not have any issues at all with wearing them. Every single weight that I have purchased has started to leak at one point, and I must admit that reading the reviews of this product made me think twice. However, not a leak of lead in sight, and I find this type of strap not only easy to put on, but that once on they stay put. One last tip: they are so heavy that the fastening may cause blisters - I wear folded over football socks and put the weight on back to front with the fastening at the back (OK, the socks are not a good look, but then neither is a blistered ankle in summer sandals).

Same result as many others on here; the stitching runs through neoprene which split after a small amount of use. The Blitz ankle weights - also available on here - are not as comfortable, thought this can be remedied with an ankle support to cushion the bone, but far more durable.

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.

These are great for whatever sport you do, just gives you that bit extra for your workout having the extra weight. I put them on my wrists when going for a run and they were very comfortable considering the weight. Only problem is how sweat kind of collects under them, and I don't know if it's because me wrists are too small for them but the Velcro overhung and caught on my other bits of clothing which could get quite irritating. Others than that can't fault them

Product completely as expected as use these in my OTAGO classes. I did not notice, however, that the price excluded VAT. so that increased the price somewhat. Probably my fault for not checking carefully enough. Product itself is great.

I buy these twice a year as after six months the stitching goes and the contents spill. That said, they are comfortable and I can't find an alternative that is any better! I use them every day for an hour to two hours. So there is around 200-300 hours of use.

I've had these for a couple of years now and they have been great for walking and wearing around your wrists whilst working out on the Wii. If I was to state a negative it's that you have to do them up pretty tight to stop them spinning around on your wrist and giving you a Chinese burn (!) but I've not experienced any splitting or damage. I think they're great to start off with and work very well for me on the Wii! :)
