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.

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.
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!
Finis Pulling Ankle Band
The pulling ankle band is just too big to stay around the ankles while swimming. It could be half the size and be very effective. I have to improvise and place it around my thighs just above the knees. But then that defeats the purpose of why I bought it: to keep from kicking my legs when using the pull buoy.
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.

Great tool: a little big for small ankles
This is a great tool to be used in addition to or independent from a pull buoy for training. However, it will be too big for juniors or kids (had to wrap it around one foot twice for a smaller swimmer the other day). Durable and sturdy.

Exactly what I needed
This corrects your kick and allows you different workouts. It is great!
a headache product
it doesn't work as said and always fall into water. so, just give up .
Better than a bike tube but needs twists
I used to use a bike tire tube but have always found the knot annoying. This FINIS version is a bit long so you have to put two twists in at ankle level if you want your feet together. Slightly better than the knot but still annoying and a bit clumsy. Too bad they don't have more than one size. Rubber seems to be thick and durable enough to last at least a year - only time will tell. I've also seen swimmers with straps made from a small trailer/cart tire innner tubes, cut into slices. If you find the right size tube, you don't need the twists.
Good tool for engaging the core and focusing on finishing each stroke by the hip
Put it around your ankles and forget about using your legs. Power up with your core to rotate side to side and move your arms fast if you don't want to sink!
These straps work perfectly. They are comfortable and long enough to twist for smaller people or keep open for larger people. They are easy to see in your bag and to mark your name on the surface.
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.
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!
I was hoping for smaller to actually use around my ankles, but they do work for their intended purpose. I'm still getting used to them as I break from "pull bouy dependance". The help you in remembering bouancy and technique. I got these for my daughter who is swimming unattached right now and she loves it, but for myself, I'm seeing how the ankle band will make me stronger.

I use it about 2x a week and it works great during practice. It seems like it will last unlike the speedo ankle lock band that rips really easy.
it is to large and keeps slipping off. would not purchase again
More Than A Pulling Ankle Band
I have been looking for something which can be used above the knees to keep them together when swimming breast stroke and butterfly. When I saw this and the price is very reasonable, so I ordered one and tried it on my son (10 years old) by putting it just above the knees it when doing the dry-land with stretchcordz for the frog kick. It works quite well in dry-land and I am sure that it will work well in the water. You can also use it when doing squarts, side steps in dry-land too and anything you can think of. More importantly, it is only $5.39 and more than just an ankle band for pulling!
Easy on Easy Off
This product is strong and keeps your feet from moving. The goal is to make your arms work harder. It works.
Keeps my pull buoy in place
I have a hard time keeping my pull body from sliding out while I’m swimming, especially on flip turns. Using this band really helps keep it in place.
