Darkfin Glove: The Ultimate Water Glove!

Almost every water sport has some type of glove meant to enhance your performance in some way.  But all of them get blown out of the water (pun intended?) by the Darkfin Webbed Power Gloves.  Most gloves are made from a woven type of material which can get heavy when wet or maybe its a water resistant material but it ends up lacking dexterity. The darkfin glove handles those issues and then some! Another benefit is that you don’t just pick based on the old small, medium, large scale! There are 12 total sizes to choose from because let’s face it hands are not just small medium and large.

I tested these out on a little kayaking trip over the 4th of July weekend to see for myself.  After all, these are said to not only help you underwater but help you with almost any water sport. Now I didn’t get into any class III rapids on the intracoastal but the extra grip and fit helped me handle my paddle much better than ever before. It was a bit warmer than a typical cut off fingers kayak glove but the performance was 10 times better. It was if the paddle was glued to my hands. I did jump in the water and test out the webbed feature on these gloves because it is the striking feature of the glove. It was able to really get me moving through the water even through the strong currents!

The glove is dipped in a company protected secret “rubber” to protect it and allow it to be so flexible for dexterity and durability. They claim to have been studying marine life propulsion and aquatic sports to create such a wonderful glove for over 20 years. I don’t know what they’ve really been studying, they could have been watching episodes of flipper and a squirrel on water skis for all I care, this glove is amazing!  The idea to make 12 sizes is a great way to ensure the proper fit which most glove companies don’t do. They call this a propulsion glove and it really does do the trick! But whether you’re a…
