Darkfin Webbed Gloves

Available online for $25 USD

Here is something with lots of ‘cross sports’ utility, using Darkfin Gloves surfers can catch every wave, scuba divers improve surge control and increase underwater speed,kayakers improve their hand-rolls and (apparently) sky divers enhance air maneuvers . Swimmers can use the gloves for in-water resistance training as the gloves greater surface area will result in increased drag through the water.

The Darkfin website claims that for divers ‘Darkfin can increase hand efficiency by increasing surface area as much as 70%. Also, when used in unison with your feet Darkfin gloves can dramatically increase your swim speed.’

The latex glove while feeling pretty durable also allows for fine dexterity while wearing the gloves, something particularly useful for divers.

Pretty cool and reasonably priced, we will be diving in Connemara with these gloves over the summer and will let you know how we fare..
