The Thera-Band Ankle Weights are noted for their padded terrycloth design, which makes them more comfortable than other options. The padding feels soft against the ankle. There is also a padded heel to protect the Achilles tendon.
These ankle weights are available in red with 2 lbs (two 1 lb cuffs), green with 3 lbs (two 1.5 lb cuffs) or blue with 5 lbs (two 2.5 lb cuffs).
These ankle weights are not adjustable in weight. Note that you get only one pair in the designated weight when you purchase on Amazon (not three pairs in three different weight classes, as some buyers thought).
The Amazon reviews note their high quality that make them long-lasting, even with daily use. Many users note a plus not mentioned in the description: reflectors around the stitching if used at night, an effective and appreciated safety feature. Even after prolonged use, they remain comfortable on the ankles.
With over 300 (70%) five star reviews, these ankle weights are our recommendation for fixed weight ankle weights.
