Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Nice Weight Pouches
Reviewer: Larry Chin,  - View all my reviews
This is a nice weight pouch. The velcro closure does securely hold the lead shot. You can save quite a bit of money by filling these pouches with reclaimed (recycled) leadshot (available from several internet sources).

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Works great!
Reviewer: David C.,
After accidentally breaking open several pouches of soft weights, I found these pouches as a solution. They were just what I needed and worked very well. I have had some reclosable pouches for lead shot in the past but the velcro eventually got weak enough to let shot dribble out. The velcro in these pouches is quite a bit more robust, however, and I think they should last a long time.

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Dive weights on the Cheap
Reviewer: Sean L.,
After looking at other soft weights, and seeing the $4/lb price tage, this seemed like a no brainer. I bought 4 5lb bags, figuring I could adjust the weight as needed in each up to 5 lbs, then for about $50, had 25lbs of reclaimed lead shot shipped to my house. I cleaned off all the dirt and such, measured out the shot for each pouch, and the double velcro flap seemed to hold it all in pretty well. havent dove with them yet, but I dont foresee any differnces or problems coming up. And the ability to adjust the amount in the bag is nice (just because the pouch says 5 on it, doesnt mean thats whats in there).

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Just a better way to carry weight
Reviewer: Adam K.,  - View all my reviews
go ahead and make the investment. the fit better in you bcd, dont hurt (as much) when you them on your foot or the boat deck, you can take weight out of them if you need them to weigh less but still want the pouch, the weight amount is always readily identifiable, and they are not that much more expensive.

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Lead Shot Weight Pouches
Reviewer: Sharon S R.,  - View all my reviews
These are the greatest. We have about 2 dozen in different sizes. Great for the BCD and for pocketed weight belts for Spearfishing. I highly recommend these to anyone that Scuba Dives or is in to Spearfishing. Easy to clean, store and dries quickly as well. Thanks, Sharon

They are tight fitting and seems to be well made. The will work just fine and fit in the belt tight too. Its probably a good thing because with time everything will lossen up. Filling up with shot was easy. Velcro seal is strong. Looks good and feels good.

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Weight Pouches
Reviewer: Larry B.,
Being on a budget, I couldnt afford $5.00 per pound for soft weights, but found the pouches on scuba.com to be very inexpensive, so after a little research, I was able to get the lead weight and pouches for about half what it would have cost me. so, want to dive, but cant afford the gear, think again and double check scuba.com

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Brilliant
Reviewer: Jennifer S.,  - View all my reviews
My company does a lot of diving and over the years weve worn out many pairs of ankle weights. The useless weights just sat around until I found these little pouches. It was very easy to pour the lead shot from the ankle weights into the pouches and reuse the shot. The pouches are pretty sturdy and the double velcro closures are very good. The pouches are a great way to save money and ensure youve always got some extra weights lying around. I highly recommend these, though when filled with the proper weight theyre pretty stiff.

Reviewer: timothy hancock,   
tight fit after putting in lead shot. best thing to do is put 4lbs of shot in a 5 lbs bag. it will give a little slack and the bag will be less likely to rupture if ped. 1lb in 2, 2lbsin 3, 4lbs in 5. out of luck on 5lbs

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch XS Scuba Weight Pouch Blue 4 lbs.
Reviewer: Mark Fowle,  - View all my reviews
This is a great product. As mentioned before they can be filled to any amount needed. If you buy a larger size and fill them short a 1/2-1 lbs they are more flexible and easier to place in the pockets. I simply write the actual weight on a piece of masking tape and place it on the tag (over the intended weight).

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Police/Rescue
Reviewer: JAMES ROBICHEAU,
I purchased the scuba weight pouches because I knew eventually the original ones I purchased from another company was made very cheap ( I will not mention the companys name for fear of retaliation) Anyways on 08/21/06 one of the cheaply purchased nylon pouches obtained a small hole and I lost some lead weight. I only used the item on a dozen dives. I purchased your material and lo and behold on more than 2 dozen dives its still in excellant condition. Thank you Scuba.com

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Great pouch!
Reviewer: Jason Mitchell,  - View all my reviews
These custom fill weight pouches are great. The mesh material allows water to drain quickly when you are done diving. Velcro closing at the top is very secure. You fill with your own lead shot weight, available at almost every hunting store. Best thing about these pouches is that you can fill them with exactly the amount of weight you need. If you want 4.5 instead of 5 pounds, then thats all you put in. Since you fill them yourself, you also save money compared to buying soft-weights at the LDS.

Rating: XS-Scuba-Weight-Pouch Quality of Excellence
Reviewer: Joseph Harszy,  - View all my reviews
The XS Scuba Weight Pouch is by far the best quality of any refillable weight pouch on the market. With its double velcro closure system, the pouch is virtually non-spillable and non-destructable. Best of all, this weight pouch is more economical than any other on the market. After buying my lead shot from a local sporting goods store and purchasing these inexpensive pouches, my total weight system was a savings of approximately $20.00 over other prefilled weight bags on the market. Plus, not to mention, the best quality.

I like the bags a lot, but I had 7.5 shot. The shot would leak out the side, so I sewed it a bit tighter. It works great now. If you get it, use bigger shot if you dont want to sit there and sew.
