ankle band finis
Thought came in different sizes. thought i was getting a blue one the small size but got a yellow one would like a smaller ankle band and a blue one like the picture shows not yellow i seen no yellow ankle band when i ordered it is showed blue. when it arrived at my house it was yellow and a lot bigger than i expected. If there is a smaller band size other than the yellow one that seems large it would be great to have a blue one not yellow whether the sizes are the same i order blue because that is what the picture had shown. If the blue one is smaller in size than the yellow one i would gladly exchange the yellow one for blue but it they are the same size then there is no sense. you might just want to change the picture to yellow ankle band because it shows blue in the picture and didn't give size or color options.

Fixing a poor kick
Had a masters coach look at my kick and said I was dragging my legs and had a deep kick with too much knee bend. Started using the band with my pull buoy. Then left it in place when I started my kick drills. Shallowed my kick and started a much needed fix to my kick and now I'm flying through the water. Love what the band does to control my kick and I encourage others to try it.

This band is useful to challenge maintaining body position. I twist band a couple of times to ensure a tight fit around ankles; then just start pulling. It's definitely more of a challenge than with a buoy since there is no float! Your legs drag unless you focus on body position - nice tool!
The bands work as advertised. However, as others have commented, the one shown when I made the order was blue but the one that arrived was yellow. From what I understand the yellow bands are larger than the blue bands. The yellow band works just fine as long as you twist it once to create a loop for each foot.
Solution for the "too loose" complaint
I use the band around my ankles placing a pull buoy down by my ankles too to lift my legs to a more neutral position and it creates a little more drag.Go online and search for a 1.5" plastic buckle, like what you find on backpacks.Cut the Finis band and thread it through the buckle. I had to shave a little plastic out of the buckle to make enough room for the band to fit properly on one side, approximately 1/32".Now you have an "adjustable" Finis band that's easy to get on and off.I swim 3,000 to 5,000 yds/m a workout and have pulled over 2,500 yds like this short course, long course, and open water.Super comfortable, and the Finis band will not wear out like the Speedo's velcro band.Good luck.

Way too big
I got this thinking it would work well but it is terrible. Even if I put it in a figure 8 it will not work. I use the Speedo Ankle Lock I got from Swim Outlet and much prefer it. I put this in a drawer and will never use it. I use the Ankle Lock everyday. I don't recommend this at all.
I use this to keep my knees tight in breast stroke kick. My improvement is drastically better. The band so comfortable that I wear it all the time to keep me nice and streamlined.
Exactly what you think it is!
Great for working on high hip placement in the water!
I would recommend using the ankle band with a pull buoy until you get used to having your feet completely drag.This will make your pull stronger, a definite plus for triathletes, in saving your legs for the bike/run!
a headache product
it doesn't work as said and always fall into water. so, just give up .
