Very nice accessory. – Cycling Stretch Reflective Ankle Band (Black) Reviews

Pros:
Very handy band, I use these to keep my pant leg off the crank so that they don't get dirtied by chain oil.
Cons:
None really
Other:
The reflective Fox logo detached when I stretched it around my leg the first time. I have large calfs from years of baseball (I was a Catcher), hiking, bicycling to school, and Martial Arts so I pretty much max out the stretch of the elastic as it is. The logo is cool to some, I guess, but unnecessary in the city, especially on a bike with lights (see the sheldon brown article on reflectors, they're basically useless anyways).
Bottomline:
I think this is handy for any commuter or person who refuses to wear shorts on MTB trails. They're cheap, so why not give it a shot?
