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.
I really liked these. They did the job and gave the boost that I was looking for while having a snorkel. They fit quite comfy (after taking out the insert, thanks to other reviewers for the heads up :)) My wife prefers the longer flippers as these are quite short, but for use around the reef, they worked right up to my expectations. The spare strap is a nice addition too.
I am a scuba diver and use this fins for snorkeling vacation in Mexico. It is very light (less than 1kg I guess), flexible and short to fit perfectly in the cabin baggage. Diving boots not fits in, but you can use neoprene socks. My size is 9 US / 42 European. You can use without socks s well. It is soft and comfortable. Built quality is very similar to US Divers Snorkeling-Fin sets which you can see in Walmart Canada.
Perfect for travelling. Not so long and wide so it fits nicely in the carrying bag and in the luggage. I used this in the ocean and I was able to go far with the fins. One day without using the fins, I was just going around in circles. A must have for snorkelling as you can use at your own lesiure without renting or going on some tour. Plus I rather have something I don't have to share.
I had no complaints.. okay only one, which is my own fault.. Take out the insert before using it ! your feet will thank you lol later did I read this insert says "remove before use" hmm...
So they're a good comfortable build no issues on the straps coming loose much smaller then a standard one but great of me as I could move fast in the lake and no complaints there.. great for a day bag too.
what am I saying more for you've already hit BUY haven't you !? go get em. I'm ordering my brother a set now too.
I wanted to give these a good season's use before reviewing. They've held up very well for the whole summer, are super light and portable in their mesh case, and come with replacement straps we've not had to use yet. Good value, I'd say. They don't have a ton of oomph, and they don't propel like my diving fins, but for just snorkelling around at local beaches, they're perfect. Great durability to throw around all summer and loan to friends. I always rinse in fresh water after using in the ocean. Highly recommend.
Not worth the money. I bought them to bring to Mexico with me as I planned on doing a lot of snorkelling. The flipper fit my feet, but the “fins” were way to small to actually move in the water. Plus they were really uncomfortable.
Bon achat, j'adore que l'endroit dans lequel on met le pied soit en silicone quand même souple donc ça ne fait pas mal au pied du tout! Les attachent restent bien fixées, donc en nageant on ne perd pas les palmes! Par contre, je chausse du 7 (Québec) et malgré que les palmes sont pour entre 4 1/2 Et 8 1/2, les palmes sont fixées au plus petit. Donc je ne crois pas qu'elles font pour quelqu'un ayant des pieds plus petit que 7...
Bought it for husband to use on our trip to Florida. Looks great! Went snorkelling at a natural spring, he found it so comfortable and found the length of it perfect too. Made snorkelling much easier. Its very flexible, so great for packing it in a suitcase.
