To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Brought these mainly for the pool. I am size 8 and went for the 7/8 (41/42) size - and they fit perfectly. They are painful only on my THIGHS - which means as a training aid they are doing what they are suppose to. As a training aid, when I then take them off and use my own strength, I have found they have really improved my previous lazy kicking. The only slight negative is that they are negative buoyancy (they sink) - in the pool this won't be a problem, in the sea...well just hope I don't drop them - but not going to knock a star off just for that as these are training fins, not pucker diving fins.
Obviously not as powerful as full sized fins, but are a great compromise when you have limited space and are all you need for some lazy snorkelling. You can get decent speed if you put a bit of effort in, and in my opinion they're just as good as the sub-standard fins that most tend to pick up on holiday.
Obviously these don't compare to proper full sized diving or snorkelling fins, but I don't know why you would compare them.
I had these on in my trip to the med, and they fit in my carry-on perfectly. All I needed, and fit as expected.
These look great but I haven't had the chance to use them yet. Taking them with me to Greece to help me build up the strength in my legs. Look small enough to fit in my hand luggage to save on weight in my hold baggage.
Nice and lightweight, slight problem with the sizing. I take size 6, the choice was 4-5 or 6-7. I chose the larger size, but one foot being smaller than the other, one slips off now and again so hopefully when I get more used to them and my technique improves I will stop that happening. Other than that great - suitable for the sea as well!
