The weight packs are flared out with rounded corners on one side and have angled in ends and corners on the other side. I first put them on with the wider side down as that seemed to match the shape of my leg-ankle-instep.
As soon as I turned them upside down with the narrower side down, they were better and did not slip down around my ankle or come loose.
YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHICH END (SIDE) IS UP, or they are useless.
I would have increased the rating more if Reebok had supplied the least bit of information about how to use them, which would have included WHICH SIDE IS UP!!
EARLY REVIEW - WEIGHTS COMING LOOSE - NO INSTRUCTIONS FROM REEBOK
The thin velcro straps that wrap around the OUTSIDE of the weight pack stick to everything you don't want them to but they CAN'T KEEP THE WEIGHTS FROM SLIPPING DOWN AND OUT DURING WALKING. These might be barely OK if your exercise regimen includes FREQUENT REST BREAKS where you will be wrestling with the straps to raise and reposition the weights back around your ankle.
One end of the weight pack has the metal link that you route the velcro strap through. So that might be OK. IF you can get the strap tight enough, the metal link should keep the weight pack from slipping down.
But the other end of the weight pack has no such link and the velcro on the outside of the pack STOPS FOUR INCHES FROM THE END OF THE PACK. So there is nothing to prevent the weight pack from slipping down and out from under the 1-1/4" wide velcro strap, especially if you are walking at a brisk rigorous pace.
I wished I could see some suggestions from Reebok (diagrams, pictures) of the best way to fasten the weight pack around my ankle. NOT A CHANCE. NOTHING on the box; NOTHING in the box. And nothing at the official Reebok website either. In fact Reebok does not list or show this model at all.
Do yourself a favor. Look for ankle weighs that have wide velcro flaps built into the weight pack, instead of velcro straps around the outside of the weight pack.
I've been using this to rehab a torn meniscus injury sustained from playing hockey. Not only is my knee feeling better faster than expected, it looks like I will be able to avoid surgery. Also, I've noticed my skating to be quicker and turns sharper now that I've added these weights to my workout regiment. I can't recommend them enough.
So I found that I didn't need the d-ring. Simply twist the Velcro strap a half-turn and continue wrapping in the same direction around my ankle - sticking it to the Velcro on the other side. It holds much better this way and it's easier to attach.
Other issues - I tried to find weights that were permanently sewed in (like the old ones I had). Removing one of the weights from the pocket is ridiculous because it leaves a limp section and the weight is once again loose. These would be much better with 2 Velcro straps (Hello Reebok - are you listening)
