Too tight

Well made product but there is a but - the top has a stretchy elastication which is rather tight … hurting the back of my knees …. I pulled the elastic to stretch it … it’s came away releasing the knitted stitches … I have another new pair to use … I ‘m hoping the 2nd pair won’t be sooo tight .. I don’t have fat legs, quite skinny … so to be tight behind my knee area is uncomfortable - well made though

Comfortable leg leeves

So far so good. Easy to put on and they allow my skin to breath. They should help to protect against minor impact damage.

shin protectors

Certainly nice and warm, and may be some help, but not so sure about their ability to withstand the jostling of several large dogs! I am recommending them with the above proviso

Comfortable to wear

A good quality product and thick. I haven't had any knocks since wearing them but they seem cushioned enough to protect my legs from bruising and blemishing.

Leg Sleeves

I can't review these. The idea is great as I bruise very easily but they are far too long for me, I'm 5'2, it's my own fault I didn't read the sizeing properly. C. Weller

Durability of leg keeper

I previously bought a pair of leg keepers but found that they do not like to be put in the washing machine. They have come undone at the bottom, so I have had to buy another set. This time I will wash them by hand. Disappointed.

Really good product

So far I’ve only tried the leg sleeves on, and am yet to wear them. Love the colour. I’m unlucky enough to have vulnerable, fragile skin and am prone to severe skin tears, so if I have to wear leg protection hosiery, I say let them be bright! I will definitely use these.

Has saved me no end of bruises!

For the first time in a very long time I don’t have any bruises on my shins. These are comfortable to wear, I don’t notice I’m wearing them. Only slight gripe is that they are about an inch too long, so I have to turn the top over, otherwise they bag around the ankles, and I am not short either. I shall try some arm ones for doing my gardening in the summer.

Would be great if there were more size options

They don’t fit as illustrated. Must be a tall model! I like the texture and the feel against my skin, I only wish they were a better fit. I can use them over my jeans like dancers’ leg warmers but that’s not ideal though I do at least feel a bit more protected. I would recommend them to someone taller than 5’6”
