I got these bands as a promotional gift from my gym and was excited to use them for home workouts since they seemed so versatile. They disappointed me in several ways. After a few uses, the bands become sort of sticky and scrunch up on their own if you don't manually unstick/unroll the layers yourself. I don't know if this is just me though since I've used them on my bare legs, so maybe it was my sweat residue making the bands stick to itself. Also, when looped and tied in a knot around bare legs, the bands don't lay flat and kind of roll up and end up rubbing and pinching my skin in a painful way, leaving red marks. They are also awkward to grip with your hands because there is no real handle, and the resistance of the band pulling can dig into your skin depending on the angle you hold it.
The main reason for 1 star is because all 3 bands snapped on me. I had given them moderate use (few months maybe?), and no crazy pulling or anything that would understandably cause the bands to snap/break, and they all broke at some point leaving me with uneven scraps of rubber... I wouldn't recommend this product since much more comfortable and durable products are available. Get the resistance tubes with the real handles instead.
