Rating: Ankle Diving Weights
Reviewer: Chris P.
it always seemed that despite my best efforts, my feet were always higher than my head while diving. this was causing an unnatural "u" shape in my profile, and causing me back pain. this last trip, i tried the ankle weights (1# each side) that helped considerably to level out my profile, and after 18 dives (almost 19 hours underwater) i emerged from my dive vacation with no low back pain! in addition, as i didnt feel i was floating up, i was able to trim my other weights down considerably, increasing my neutrality and overall better diving! i highly recommend anyone who has low back pain while diving try out ankle weights. it worked for me! they were convenient to use and fit nicely over my boots.

Reviewer: steven d.
A pound on each ankle will put your fins on your drysuit in the water for swimming on the surface on your back.

Rating: Vertical Balance - finally!
Reviewer: Adair New  -  View all my reviews
im one of those women whose lower body tends to float upward when trying to relax at a safety stop (not exactly attractive. these weights make it effortless to hang in vertical position yet they dont affect my horizontal balance when diving at all. i love them!

Rating: Love them!
Reviewer: Kathryn R.
I always dove with full foot fins/socks, but recently decided to get regular fins/booties. I guess the booties made my feet float a bit, so I was having "back arch" problems. I dive with only 6# of weight anyway, and didnt want to add any more around my waist. The 1# weights on each ankle were exactly what I needed. No more arching, no more fighting to stay level during safety stop. Very comfortable, easy to take with me on out of country trips.

Rating: Perfect Ankle Weights
Reviewer: Kayomee D.  -  View all my reviews
I bought these because my new fins caused my legs to want to float away. These weights worked perfectly. They are soft, comfortable, adjustable, easy to wash and have an easy snap release. Shipping was very fast from Scuba.com

Rating: Does the job
Reviewer: Carolina E.
Ive never been so confortable in my life! This weight really made a huge diffrence from my last dives. The only drawback is that I had to tie a knot on the strap according to ankle diameter so clippers wouldnt slide, but other than that... perfect!

Rating: scubamanbo master instructor rewiews ankle weights
Reviewer: Robert Pierce
These are useful if your legs tend to float up in salt water a common problem for women. They help in keeping you in the best position for diving. I use them to help me swim at the surface as I am an oprn water swimmer and they allowed a better kick. Very comfortable to wear. Super price ansd fast shipping

Rating: Ankle Weights
Reviewer: Carol D.
I bought the 1.5 lb ankle weights because of a problem with my feet being too buoyant. I found the ankle weights to be comfortable and easy to adjust. My feet stayed level instead of going up.

Rating: My attitude has changed!
Reviewer: PAUL DONOVAN  -  View all my reviews
These ankle weights are very comfortable and the clips are easy to use. Wearing these has changed my attitude during diving because they keep my feet down where they are supposed to be. I highly recommend these for women. Roberta - Oregon

Rating: undecided
Reviewer: Pricella Armendariz  -  View all my reviews
I did not use these weights on my ankles, due to the heavy currents on my last dive. I was dissappointed though, in that the sales person said it was 3 lbs. total, and it is actually 3 lbs. each weight, for a total of 6 lbs. I used them in my pockets since the size of the weight is long and the strap does not tie to a "small" anakle which most short females like I have. I would not reccommend these for small ankles.
