Great little Set
I read other reviews and saw that most of the complaints were that the belts ride up and or the end pops off the dumbbells.
My friend and I did our usual hour long water aerobic session twice last week and neither of us had a problem with the dumbbells. The belts do ride up but I have used several different belts in the past and they all ride up. I have another more expensive set, $40 for belt/bells and no gloves. I only paid $50.90 for two of these sets and actually prefer them over the higher priced set! Great value for money,
we are both happy and would recommend these to friends.

Love this set!
very pleased with my purchase. use it every week in my deep water aerobics class. others in the class paid much much more for their products so I feel very lucky to have found mine at such a good price.

Do not buy...total disappointment, no use for them at all!!!!
The worst product I could have bought......The dumbbells come apart the second you put them in the water. The pieces don't come together with enough pressure. The holes are too big for the bar to hold it together. Just terrible. I have no use for them A total disappointment. The quality of the material is bad....iI should have known because of the price, please don't bother buying it!!!!

The belt rides up and the ends of the weights ...
The belt rides up and the ends of the weights come off overtime they go underwater. I will never order from this company again. I had weights from another company that sells a group of 3 different sizes and they lasted 3 years without ends ever coming off. The box blew in the pool so I am unable to return for a refund

It seemed like a good deal
It seemed like a good deal, but weights kept on falling apart in the water. Had to use guerilla glue...hopefully it will last. The belt is not as good as other belts I used. Doesn't keep me afloat compared to other belts I used before. I should have just bought the expensive products I seen at my local sports store, may have been better quality.

... hopes when buying this product as it was a great deal for all that is included
I had really high hopes when buying this product as it was a great deal for all that is included. Unfortunately the belt does not stay on. The buckle stays fine but the slack when pulled tight like a seatbelt would be, just completely goes back to slack. The belt then floats up around the chest and renders it useless.
The barbells were also useless very quickly. they arrive disassembled. You put it in pieces on the provided bar and put in caps on the pieces. I worked out for about one minute before the in caps came out of each side in they came apart. I would imagine these would work fine if you're willing to glue the in caps in which I was not.
I gave this product a two star rating because the webbed gloves it came with were actually pretty cool. Unfortunately I'm returning the whole set so I won't get to use those.

Great arthritis workout
Works great. What a workout. I didn't feel a thing till I got out of the water. Helps with my arthritic joints.

I have just tried putting super glue on the end caps to give them one ...
After taking a aerobic class I couldn't wait to get this and doing aerobics and weight training at home. Upon receipt I immediately put the bar bells together and headed for the pool. On the first exercise all 4 end caps immediately fell off. After putting it back together 5 or 6 times I gave up. I have just tried putting super glue on the end caps to give them one last try. If the super glue doesn't work they are going directly into the garbage!

Only one (easily fixable) thing kept them from 5 stars!
I was skeptical but I bought 2 sets and gave it a try. I bought two because I knew if I didn't my 11 year old would be using them and I needed them for myself. The problem I had, as I'm sure everyone else did, is the dumbell flying off into the water when you submerge them into the water. I was very disappointed and ready to return them both but so hesitant because I absolutely fell in love with the aqua belt. My husband said he would glue them and even though I didn't think it would work, I was willing to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise. It worked! I have used them 3 times and used them aggressively submerging them continuously for 5 minutes or more. They have not popped off once! Back to the aqua belt. What a great help for me to start a swimming routine. It has been a huge help in swimming laps. There is no way I could have gone this long swimming laps without them. I've tried! Very productive tool for swimming and running in the water. I used to do extensive weight and cardio training. It was rough on my joints. This is a true help in my exercise routine.
