Connect It 3-Legged Race Bands
Well worth it.
This item worked very well. It made the 3 legged race alot easier to do. It was faster to change from one group to the next. This item is definitely worth it.

We purchased the 3-legged race bands but most of them fell apart during the first race. The velcro ripped off. We ended up having to tie them in knots. Although the children still had a great time, I would not recommend this product.

This product is a total fail!!
Each band broke after taking five steps. And that was with 6 & 7 yr olds. They need to take this product off the wedsite. I would have been better off ripping apart some cloth and using that.

Not a good product!
To do something different...we were gonna do 3-legged soccer. We tried a simple 3-legged race and it was a complete fail. The kids were 6-7 years of age as soon as they were placed on the kids 2 groups went about 3 paces and their band broke. I was very disappointed and so were the kids whose bands broke. We didn't have many kids so we changed out bands but the bands were of such bad quality they broke and the kids could hardly move in them. The bands also gave out if stretched and elasticity was nonexistent. I would not recommend buying these.

Fall apart in a few steps
I had my 4 year old daughter "test-run" these around her own legs and 1/3 of them broke or were about to break (the stitches don't hold the fabric to the velcro or the elastic to the fabric). So I pulled those out and didn't use them. OTC was very good about quickly shipping me a replacement set to use for my event. Again we took out the questionable ones. Of the "good" ones left, 1/2 broke within 3-4 steps when used for an actual race by kids 6-12. Very poor quality. I would NOT recommend them. You might be able to salvage them by sewing over the seams a couple times, but you shouldn't have to fix a brand new product.

Great product...worked much better and quicker than having to take the time to tie rope/fabric around the participants legs.

worst purchase ever
Purchased 3 dozen for a school event--many, many separated and in about 1/3 of them, the elastic broke. It was a huge disappointment and a waste of money. The kids were disappointed as well because the velcro gave way so often. Would never purchase again and have thrown out those that remain.

worked great for us
We ordered these for the 3-legged race portion of a relay we did at our company picnic and they worked fine for us, both with kids and adults.

Did not work well for Field Day
We purchased these for our elementary school field day. They did not stay fastened during the races, so we had to quickly make some bands from strips of t-shirts that were tied for each contestant. The velcro is not strong enough. Possible the large rubber band ones would work better.
