Product Overview

Do your feet always seem to rise above you when diving? Some divers need to compensate the buoyancy of their legs with ankle weights. Diving with ankle weights, reduce leg and fin buoyancy, minimizes back stress for a safer, more comfortable dive. Ankle weights keep fins submerged at the surface and add stability during underwater projects such as photography or dive instruction.

Ankle weights are an important part of a diver's total weighting system. If your legs are too high, then there will be increased drag. When your legs are too high this will slow you down and cause fatigue. Correct your position with ankle weights. Many divers, especially women, have short waists. The weights in your BC or on your weight belt are closer to your head than they are on divers with longer waists. Therefore, the weight, push your upper body down and your legs up, causing unnecessary drag, Ankle weights will take some of this weight off the waist area and will move it down to the ankles, putting your body in a correct horizontal position.

Dry suit divers frequently require ankle weights because the legs of a dry suit are filled with air. The result is the legs want to float up. Ankle weights add negative buoyancy to the ankles and help bring the legs down into a correct horizontal position. If you are one of these divers, this fill your own set of ankle weights, will cure those problems. Simply fill these ankle weight pouches with sand or lead shot up to 5 lbs. (2.27 kg) each, and fasten around your ankles, then watch your diving profile become more streamlined and efficient.

"Aqua Fill Your Own Set" Ankle Weights are constructed of flexible, comfortable form-fitting neoprene with hook and loop closure to secure the weight of your choice inside. Ankle weights come equipped with durable side-release squeeze-style quick-release buckle to secure ankle weights around your ankles. Fill-able ankle weights allow the diver to customize the amount of weight they need to combat buoyancy.
