Bright Steps Leg Bands, 4-pk Size: Small
Works but isn't perfect
exactly what I expected from reading the reviews. you have to make sure you get the right size, its not stretchy so if you get too small itll be hard to get over their paws. My dog being a doberman has some big paws and skinnier legs making it so i can barely get them over his paws and then they slide down off his legs. once you get use to them though, theyre not too hard to get over the paws just start with two toes and then slide the whole thing over. The front legs almost worked perfect for my dog but they slipped down to his paws, to keep them on i have to have them all the way up to his elbows. the back legs were impossible though. if he bends his leg it falls and anywhere else its too loose but luckily they stay loosely on his back hocks, so it doesnt fall to his paws. I really think they should use a stretchy material or better yet a velcro strap like the leg wraps the put on horses only way smaller as its just a reflective band. all in all though it does its job, i put on the bands and i can seem him frolic threw the night. Its the only thing i found that works for relecting light from every side. the reflective colars are nice but you cant see them from behind or on fluffier dogs. hopefully this helps you guys decide if you want it. oh and just fyi I got large for my doberman, hes only 1yro and a bit on the smaller side of dobermans.

Fine for the price, possibly not big enough for dogs over 70 lbs.
I have a 70 lb Old English Sheepdog. I can just barely get the bands to go past his paws but they do go on and stay put above his dew claws. The bands do work decently as reflective surfaces at night when the car lights hit it.
I've used them about 10 times and the blue part is beginning to unravel a little.However, that may be because the bands came into contact with something that had Velcro on it and it snagged--but it is happening to 2 out of the 4, so I'm a little suspicious. I cut off the threads that were coming loose and it seems fine.
I think these bands are great for medium or smaller dogs. If they had another size larger than L and adjustable (Velcro like the other review said), it would be better. My dog doesn't like having these put on but forgets about them once we're out the door for his walk.

Would not purchase again
Of all our foster dogs , the leg bands would'nt comfortably fit any of them and the were difficult to try and slip them over the feet.

chart is not good. It's too small.
In the chart it says if the dog weight is 45-80 lbs take medium. So I took medium because my dog weights 69 lbs. But it doesn't fit at all!
Maybe it would be better to tie it with a velcro instead of having an elastic band.
