Bought this to use primarily to stretch tight Achilles tendons. Of course this band lends itself to so many more uses that I have only started to explore. The plastic jar that the band comes in was a nice surprise and perfect for easy storage. Can't comment on the longevity of the band as I've only had it a couple of months but I'm hopeful. This was a very highly rated band and I was so happily surprised to find it at well.ca! (I really need to spend some time exploring ALL the products offered on this site).
