I like the weight. After having several other sets of belts fastened with nylon buckles, when I saw these, I thought, "Yes!" Those who have a magic belt have a prickly part of the belt. And because the weight is not usually long enough to bypass your legs, this means that prickly nylon buckles will scratch your skin or bite your socks. Then, the nylon buckle must be very strong to maintain the weight, and eventually wear and tear, making the weight useless. So my previous pair was soft neoprene with Velcro at the end. These are better, but still not great, because the nylon buckles don't match and I'm still scratched or stuck in socks. The nylon buckle was finally exhausted. That's why I like these things so much. I can see that this will continue for many more years. I'm not wearing it in the water. The only small problem is that once you put it on and adjust it, the extra part of the strap hangs down, so they have a nylon clasp at the end of the strap, so you can stick it on it, don't worry, that's good, but one of them lacks Velcro at the end of the strap. But because these are great, I can't take off a whole star because of such a small problem. ". I bought some nylon buckles at a local store, and that's why I cut out a piece and attached it to it, and I didn't expect to take it off again, because I was the only one who could use weight. I like the fact that they are soft and long enough to put on top.
