Several months ago I purchased 3 sets of these for my many night time, early morning or rain runs - and for the most part, I am very pleased. They are highly reflective, brilliantly colored, and definitely have proven their worth to me at least 4 times in oncoming traffic. The pop band is easy and fun, however...the only real difficulty I have found is that they are very stiff and have a tendency to create irritation from their "sharper" plastic edges. For example, you might want to be wary that wearing them around your ankles over bare skin and not over long pants can be pretty uncomfortable, with the edges of the band digging into your skin, causing small cuts. This is less of a problem around your wrists, given the motion of your ankles. But another thing to note is that they don't close cleanly around either ankles or wrists - there seems to be a little curve on the end that doesn't allow them to fit snugly and cleanly as the picture shows. Also, wearing them around biceps is fine, but they do tend to slip downward into the curve of your elbow. Wearing them anywhere but on the wrists requires constant adjusting and "re-popping" during your workout to get them to be comfortable again or stay put. Unfortunately, these challenges have actually led to a new search for something a little more friendly for wearing on bare skin (considering Jogalite cloth thin bands). All this being said, I still think they are fabulous for placement on a jogging stroller, bicycle, or over clothing. I've worn them in full out downpours and would definitely classify them as waterproof and easily cleanable, another plus. You won't go wrong with these, just remember that where you intend to wear them will make your experience happier or not. :)

I was recently introduced to these by a friend in Boulder and I LOVE them. I have a set in orange and yellow, which I think are the more reflective colors (although they are all visible from far away). They are addictively fun to "pop" on. I keep wanting to buy these for friends as gifts. I am thinking a lot more about being safe at night now that I'm riding my bike more. It's just getting to expensive to drive all the time. I recommend these to anyone.

These products are incredibly reflective! When my headlights caught a neighbor walking her dog it looked like lasers suspended in midair. It definitely got my attention as I couldn't see either her or the dog until I was dangerously close. I thought I'd have to "make" my kids wear them but they love the fact that they can be seen in a "stylish" manner whether walking, playing or riding their bikes.

Super Reflective SILVER Dog Leash | 6 Foot | by Vedante

I LOVE these POP BANDS and also my reflective dog leash both by VEDANTE. I use them when out on night time dog walks and feel safe knowing I can now be seen by cars. This is especially comforting in the winter months and during low visibility times, since there is not enough daylight to get my morning and evening dog and people exercise in. These products are a must for all outdoor activities when visibility is a safety issue. Whether you are biking, walking, jogging, skiing, etc., be seen and be safe!

This item is great. The reflective band reflect from a car a block away and very durable. It's been in use for a month or so now and the "pop" is still as strong as the day I first use this. Keeps my pants from being caught in my gears. Very good item. Does not regret getting this and will get more for friends and family.

I thought I could use these bands to keep my pants clean while riding the bike, but they fall all the time. They are very easy to put but they are also very easy to involuntarily detach them. Visibility is great, though. I just wish they were more stable on my legs.

I got mine in the large size so I'd have more versatility in their use. Comfortable to wear. The clear/silver color offers the most visibility, I plan to order more of these for gifting.

I use the high-reflectance yellow bands daily... they're quite visible at dusk or in the dark. Strong enough to keep a pants cuff out of the chain but very easy on & off. Much more reflective than any other bands I've tried! (Make sure you get either white, yellow or tangerine, though -- the other colors are not nearly as reflective.) I haven't had any problem with them staying in place, but never tried them on my wrists or on ankles while jogging, just biking... You may need to turn or move them around a little to have them lay flat around yr ankles -- as one reviewer mentioned, the ends of the bands have a stiff spot, but if I face the Vedante logo to the front and have the outside end of the band on the outside of my ankle, they sit flat for me. They're far superior to other brands I've tried!

Bright! Easy to pop on and stays in place because of the velour backing. I also have a pair in yellow. Use these on my wrists and ankles so that I light up like a christmas tree (along with a reflective vest) when a car comes in my direction.

I would suggest that you get a large size if you plan on strapping this around your ankle above your pants. The medium I've found JUST fits around my ankles over my pants.

Thanks to all those walkers and joggers who are using these products. It greatly increases my chances of seeing you at night. It can get very hard to see in the dark on a bike path when car headlights are beaming at me.

I'd forgotten about slap bands from grade school until I got these.

As other reviewers said, for bicycling, the bands aren't tight and subject to working loose during a 3 mile commute. Usually I just roll up my pants instead of using these. I leave them wrapped around my seat post adding extra visibility for the periodic days that I use them.
