The finest, high-performance water propulsion and paddle glove on the planet! Period.

We love this planet, and we love our oceans, thats why every set of gloves is hand made with 100% Biodegradable, Non-Toxic, Materials. 

This is the original webbed glove, handmade and purpose built to enhance your aquatic sports experience. Used by World Surfing League champions, Guinness World Record divers, pioneers of whitewater river boarding, and thousands of freedivers, surfers, scuba enthusiasts, snorkelers, swimmers, and kayakers the world over. It’s like nothing you’ve ever used before, even if you’ve used other webbed gloves! What makes a Darkfin Power Glove paddle power so superior to the competition? Three main features:

Nano Cellular Bonding Process
Like other products made by Black Lagoon, the entire glove, including the webbing, is made from 100% true natural latex. Why latex? It gives Darkfin Gloves several advantages: Ultra-thin, .9mil “second skin” fit to keep water out, natural biodegradability (we hate beach and ocean trash too), and most importantly; it’s what allowed us to develop our exclusive Nano Cellular Bonding process. Nano Cellular Bonding - or NCB - is how we attach the webbing to the glove. It allows for a seamless, non-adhesive bonding at the cellular level, resulting in no structural weak points like a conventional stitched or glued on web.

3-D Webbing Profile
By using our Nano Cellular Bonding process we’re able to affix the webbing to the back of the glove to create the only 3-D web profile in the business. This exclusive design allows for a whopping 70% increase in surface area compared to using your bare hand for propulsion! Since the 3-D webbing is made of latex and bonded to the glove, it’s able to move with your fingers allowing you to vary the resistance level of the glove. This makes the Darkfin Power glove visibly and mechanically superior to gloves that use either injection molding or adhesive to connect the webbing between the fingers only.

Cotton Flocked Finish
One of the most inconvenient aspects of wearing gloves is the loss of dexterity. Manipulating small mechanical parts can be cumbersome, achieving and maintaining a solid grip challenging, and forget about tactile feedback. Not with Darkfin Gloves! We start with an ultra thin latex glove for maximum sensitivity and then add our exclusive Cotton Flock Finish to the entire surface of the glove. The cotton fibers embed themselves in the latex - and when activated with water - provide superb grip.

Finally, we know one size doesn’t fit all. Hands are a lot like feet and 3 sizes won’t fit everyone. Darkfin Power Gloves are offered in an industry leading 12 different sizes! We make gloves to fit the most petite female hands, to beefy lumberjack paws. We’ve even got a few for the kids as well! No water propulsion glove manufacturer offers more sizes than Darkfin. Made in USA

Tip: If you're concerned about water entering the glove at the wrist, we recommend trying the next size down. The glove is supposed to fit tight but not uncomfortable!

So here's what might be one of the most interesting reviews you've read in a while.

B. Fuller on Jun 18th 2018
So here's what might be one of the most interesting reviews you've read in a while. I bought these gloves several years ago. I swim a lot. I had polio as an infant and have no use of my lower extremities. Wow! Just what I need a well-made glove that significantly increased my workout. End of story. Right? Not quite. The first pair I bought blew out at the thumb and index finger seam. Same with the second. When I contacted the company they sent me a replacement. After that, I figured out that if I reversed the gloves putting the webbing on the inside rather than the outside the gloves lasted forever. Reversing the gloves took the pressure off the seam and solved the problem. But that's not the end of the story. After posting my review and telling others about my find I had over 70 people who indicated that the review was helpful. When the folks at Darkfin saw that response they contacted me to say that based on that response they were prototyping a new design with the web in front and. would I be available to try the new design? I got the new gloves a few weeks ago and have been using them a lot. Needless to say, they nailed it. The new design is a significant improvement over the "web behind" model. But even that isn't the whole story. This isn't a story about the new design as much as it is a story about outrageously great customer service. What more could a customer possibly ask for? A company that stands behind their product and constantly strive for improved products is exactly the kind of company I want to do business with. Money well spent. I know you will agree.

powerful stroke and strong shoulders

Erik on Jun 18th 2018
I bought my first pair in 1994 they were great! I decided to look for something similar and to my surprise I found the same company making a much improved product.
These are great for increasing your paddle area by 100%. The power is noticeable both during paddling and after when muscles ache from the additional stress. They will build your shoulders and improve your stroke power.
I use them for long boarding but they are great for any surfing, prone paddling and a important part of an intense swimming workout.
my hands are not that big, but large was too small for me. I use extra large and there is a XXL size available. They need to be wet or powdered to get on and there is a slight cramping sensation at first but I hardly notice them during a 2 hour session.
I have taken some grief, being called a fish and teased in the lineup, but who laughs last when I drop in first or paddle back out faster?

Run BIG!

Kimberly G. on May 15th 2018
I wear a size 8 glove and got the Womens Large, but it was too big. If you get the right size I'm sure they are great, although taking them off is a pain. The sizing chart is a little misleading so be careful and order a size smaller then you expect.

Simple yet brilliant

Phototraveller on May 15th 2018
My hands are the precise measurement for a mens small. However, listening to other reviewres, I ordered the next size down, which is the youth's large. Perfect fit except little finger is slightly short. Perhaps that's difference between a youth and a man but I'm glad I dropped a size down, you want these to be snug. I'll just live with it for now but if it aches, I'll just snip the tip of the little finger.

I bought these for scuba diving, not for protection but for improving my manouverability. I've not had the chance to test in that environment but in a pool you can certainly tell the difference. You can also feel it in your shoulder muscles immediately and swimming is so different (in a very positive way)

Nice glove

Jon on May 15th 2018
Print out the hand size diagram off their site. Item is perfect for my hand. So far the gloves feel nice, I hope they last since they are latex and not silicone.

Customer service was great too!

They help me swim somewhat faster

Very good product, but run large

Betti G. Weiss on May 15th 2018
I love these gloves. I've tried many resistance gloves. These are the most comfortable and durable I've had and would highly recommend them. However, either kids hands are a lot larger than they used to be or my hands are really, really small. Knowing my hands are relatively small, but not unusually so, I opted for the kids large size. To my surprise they were too big. I ordered the kids small (skipped the mediums) and they fit perfectly.

jennifer sarin on May 15th 2018
awesome product:) a tiny bit hard to put on (put on while in water is a big help or get the spray lubricant/protector to maintain health) but great arm workout while i'm chilling with kids in pool. Can'e wait to give a go in the ocean. Used them every day in a pool for 3 months and had no issues with falling apart or fading.

First-time user, not a professional swimmer, but liked the Darkfin Webbed Power Gloves.

Juan F. Osegueda on May 15th 2018
As advertised, the gloves do give you fewer strokes per pool length. Also as some other reviewers have noted, they add resistance to your stroke and was in a bit of pain by the time I was done with my first workout. Have gotten used to the increased resistance and swim more confidently with them on. Indeed they are hard to put in and far easier to do so underwater. Sizing is key, I happened to use the sizing guide on Darkfin's site and bought the right pair.

Creature from the Black Lagoon

Watchman on May 15th 2018
Alright I have to admit to using these gloves for a purpose for which they are not intended...as part of a Halloween costume. Yes, the creature from the black lagoon is not complete without webbed hands. Makes it hard to shake hands, but is fun to watch people try to shake the hand of a real creature. Have been on the Internet so long you could say I am an old hand with the web. See? It works. Also, not that expensive.

Perfect for catching more waves.

Sam J. on May 15th 2018
These work exactly as intended and are very comfortable, easy to clean, and durable. I frequently swim with these and the power of my strokes are amplified and so is the stress on my chest and arm muscles. It makes for a great workout.

I originally purchased these for better sprinting on a surfboard to catch more waves. In that regard they are perfect and I’m glad I have them.

These are great! (Edit 4 months later)

R. A. Selkirk on May 15th 2018
As a paraplegic I need swim gloves to do any swimming of distance. I've had neoprene swim gloves but they just don't quite cut it. Then I tried a pair of these and was impressed. They take a bit of getting used to for technique, but the resistance you get for the power stroke is very good, and you don't have as much drag on the return which is also very nice. I have rather large hands so I got the largest size they have and they (just) fit. If you're looking for gloves to give you an extra boost, or to give you a better workout, these are pretty darn good!

**Edit 4/17 - I've gone through two pairs of these gloves already, both suffering the same fate. The webbing is not quite thick enough to stand up to the power put through them, and the webbing on both pairs split near the thumb on one glove, the second pair had multiple splits. Leaving the rating at 5 stars. I can't take a full star off for being so hard on the gloves.

Besides which customer service is top notch, they replaced the first pair at no charge (other than my needing to mail the gloves to them). I would still recommend these gloves, but if you are a powerful swimmer like me, you will probably need to join their club (see the paper that comes with the gloves for info) so as to make buying replacements cheaper. I've since moved on to a different set of swim gloves (with it's own set of challenges), but these are superb while they last. I just wish that the manufacturers would use a slightly thicker piece for their webbing layer. If they did that I would go back to using these in a heartbeat.

You gotta think outside the box on these.

B. FULLER on May 15th 2018
OK here's the deal. I love these gloves but it's been a rocky road. The first several pairs blew out early. There's a design flaw. The webbing is on the back of the hand, which means the stress point is between the thumb and fore finger. So the gloves kept ripping at the seam. You would expect that since that is the weakest point in the construction. After noodling on the issue a while it dawned on me that what had to happen was that the stress points had to be protected. I tried several strategies but let's just say keep it simple stupid. I decided to wear the gloves on opposite hands so the webbing is now on the palm side. It takes a little getting used to because the gloves are engineered to be worn on like a glove. Fortunately the material stretches over time and forms to the hand well. Now I have putter 500 miles on the last pair with no sign of seam failure. Previously I was fortunately to get 100 miles on a pair. So if you're going to order these either order a bunch of them or simply wear them on the opposite hand. Enjoy.

Better for surface swimming

Bryan Woods on May 15th 2018
Better for surface swimming. they make a difference. Hard to use underwater, but fir is good. get a size larger than you'd usually choose.

cool... but

anderson on May 15th 2018
they do work you can feel the extra speed and power they give you in the water but they are pretty thin so you have to be gentle with them when you take them off or put them on. also when you paddle water gets stuck in them sometimes

She's faster than the fishes!

Jacquelyn on May 15th 2018
My neice is a little surfer girl, and these are perfect for her. They don't slick up too much when they get wet so she can grip her board really well, but they work really well to tread water. These gloves have the fishes doing double takes!

Not Disapointed

Erick J. on May 15th 2018
These really worked well. They provided great traction so there was little wasted motion on each paddle stroke. I had great use of my hands wearing them, I didn't feel constrained. They fit well and didn't balloon out by letting water in. It wasn't bad putting them on, maybe a little tough, but they are tough enough to take the tugging.

They do help to propel you through the water

Good gloves, order larger size.

Chase on May 15th 2018
This is my second pair as the first size I ordered was basically for a child even tho it's measurements said it would fit. So order a size larger.
I use them for river surfing in Alberta.
They're nice gloves, I wouldn't say they offer a ton of protection from the cold but it's better than nothing. They're strong & durable & increase your paddling huge.

They take a few minutes to put on, but ...

Mark D. Hardt on May 15th 2018
They take a few minutes to put on, but it is well worth the wait. I have found that, when I doing a stroke (such as the breast stroke) in which I need to bring my hands forward, the webbed gloves allow me to clench my hands and reduce resistance. These gloves work my arm muscles into a burn unlike anything I have ever used.
As for the tearing that I have read about: I apply a prodigious amount of talc on the inside, and after a month they show no signs of shredding.

Too large for my hands

Gracia47 on May 15th 2018
Have to send them back. All the other reviews said order a size smaller. I have small hands and could only order size small. I didn't see a size XS or smaller. Haven't sent them back yet because I am waiting for an answer from the company, not to charge me return shipping since the sizing information was incorrect. I put them on easily without wetting them and they were too loose. All the other reviews said they were difficult to get on and fit tightly. You need a tight fit since they will loosen somewhat in water.
They might be OK if they made more sizes to fit and to choose from.

they are not bad, but it feels very unconfortable to use latex

They are not bad, but it feels very uncomfortable to use latex, is better neoprene, and they only lasted 8 months, after that the latex starts to break apart

I will not recommend the glove to divers

Andrew D. on May 15th 2018
I purchased the glove for diving however I proved to be quit a challange to pick up items as the Web kept blocking the object. I couldn't hold on to lobsters either because the Web kept getting in the way. I will not recommend the glove to divers. However this is a good training glove or for free divers.

Not great for my cold water surfing application

Major Doodle on May 15th 2018
I guess I didn't read the thickness very carefully in the description but please know that these are fairly thin before pruchaseing. If you are expecting to surf in cold water with these you might want to think twice if you are a temperature wuss like me. I like the idea of this product so I may try the thermal version instead of which I was previously unaware. They honestly feel like dish washing gloves and make a nice whoopee cushion noise on my palms when I make a fist. So these could prove entertaining while waiting in the line up for the next wave. In my opinion the pictures make the gloves look very form fit and sleek and this is somewhat true for the side they show you in the picture. The back side looks much less appealing to me and not what I would imagine from a product with a bad @$$ name like Darkfin. I posted pictures and you can draw your own conclusions. Again love the idea of this product but this particular model did not work well for my needs. Bummer dude...

Great Design

Dennis L. on May 13th 2018

This is my 4th or 5th pair of Darkfin Swim Gloves. I love the design. They really do work better than any other swim glove out there.

I swim two miles a day, five days a week. I'm trying to swim 2,100 miles across the USA, with only 20 miles to go I think I'll make it.

After going through a dozen (or more) pairs of other swim gloves, I switched to Darkfin. My first couple of pairs were amazing. However, it seems like the quality has been dropping. My first pair lasted almost a year. My most recent pair has holes after a few months.

I would still highly recommend the gloves, for the way they work. You'll just have to replace them more often, if you really workout hard.

Good glove and ok strap that do the job

David C. on May 13th 2018

I wanted a swimming glove that would keep the harsh chlorine water off of my hands. This glove with the Velcro straps pretty much does that. I do wish the straps had a single buckle so that you could loop the strap through and then reverse direction for pulling tight. The straps have no buckle and require that you wrap around it your wrist and hold one end while pulling the other tight (which is hard to do by yourself). I don't have an idea of how long these gloves will last but they seem to be made fairly sturdy. The glove by itself would be 5 star.

Darkfin Gloves are great for surfing!

Peter S. on May 13th 2018

I am now into my third pair of Darkfin gloves and quite frankly feel "naked" when I surf without them. They fit well—really snugly—and are very comfortable and flexible, so there's no problems about hanging onto the rails of my board, in fact they give a better grip than bare hands. And they sure help me catch waves—much to the annoyance/admiration of my gloveless surfing mates. Would I recommend them? You bet!

I take these heavier duty Darkfins cut off the cuffs also modify so there is cutout of the Palm, back of hand areas an inverted V that matches the opposite side. This enables me to put gloves on/ off more easily and still get the benefit of webbing while swimming. These heavy duty ones are needed because the light duties just don't hold up to the rigors of daily exercise

Remarkable invention

James N. on May 12th 2018
Great product for swimming and (prone) paddle boards.

Pros:

Slip on easily when wet.

Maintains dexterity - neoprene gloves have none.

Better 'grab' of water and feel of the water than neoprene

Better catch - they slide in, reducing splash/ drag at catch

Increased surface area - when fingers splayed, significantly larger surface area than neoprene

Modulated surface area - when fingers together, surface area is about same as hand

Cons;

Could use a size larger - my middle finger is a bit snug, and not inclined to cut the tip off. (Of the glove . . . )

The gloves met my expectations and I enjoy using them when I go for swims. My hands are pretty small and I struggle to find gloves that fit perfectly. These are no exception, but considering what I would assume is the odd metrics of my hands they are a nice fit. A lot of people turn their heads when I walk by with my awesome gloves. The quality is solid and they haven't come apart after the first season of swimming.

Almost feels like you are a fish

Vladimir K. on May 12th 2018
While I am not using them too often lately, I have took them for several swims in the ocean. Scientifically, I can't say if the increase in surface area they provide does increase performance in reality, but they are very durable, and they are really comfortable with swimming and don't restrict your grip too much.

The added layer of insulation works great as well. Outside of the water my hands would feel hot under the sun if wore them for too long, but during a swim session, heat is not much of a concern, in fact it protected my hands from the cold 21 degrees Celsius salty water, won't kill anyone, but still my hands were warmer than the rest of my body. So do wear them when you are about to dive or swim, as the skin on your hands tends to heat up with them on.

This is my second pair of darkfin gloves. I bought the first pair on a whim three years ago, because I was looking for a way to make my swims more challenging. Great purchase! I have used them 3-6 times/week for three years, and only recently wore a little hole in the thumb. Or maybe I snagged it. In any case, this time around, they have women's sizes, which are slightly differently proportioned, and so my replacement gloves are even better than the originals that I loved. I'm so happy I made that impulse buy years ago!

It's really fun to swim with these gloves. As it's not only good for building muscle because of the extra forces of water that you paddle the gloves with, but also answers that deep question of fantasy you had "what if I were a sea creature with webbed hands? That would be cool."

It is indeed pretty cool to wear these gloves to answer any question you may have had when seeing these gloves.

So far the gloves are fantastic! In the 80's there were TFL gloves that were not as durable but fit a bit better. All in all I'm satisfied... Aloha

Surfing Gloves for inexperienced surfer

Christine L. on May 12th 2018
These gloves have made a big difference to my ability to get on a wave. I can now confidently get in the line up and take waves as I can now paddle onto many more waves. I am a beginner and was having lots of trouble with having the strength and endurance of paddling while surfing. The gloves work a treat if you are game to look different.

Darkfin Gloves

Michael W. on May 12th 2018
I use them for surfing in the Atlantic and Pacific. If a clean up set comes I am usually the only one that made it outside in time. In white water the traction I get with these gloves helps me out of the pit with the least beating.

AMAZING INCREDIBLE!!!

Juliano G. on May 12th 2018
I'm using the darkfingloves for swimming, submerse swimming, aqua jogging, and surfing, and works perfectly,the traction is incredible, gives a powerful paddle and increase my velocity, fits perfectly, I don't think is hard to put it on ,( i put it on inside the water), the grip is great, i can use the touch screen on my phone .
It's helping me a lot doing aqua jogging.
Very solid built, amazing style,
Definitely out standing and great for surf , can help you get out some bad situations in the impact zone, and if you loose your board definitely can help you get to the shore much much faster.
For swimming, I'm swimming like a dolphin in harmony with the ocean, fast, smooth, and in a submerse swimming it's incredible, use fins with this gloves and would be a fish mix with a dolphin.
Thank you a lot for creating this kind of material and use so much creativity.

It's really a great gloves, the best ever for sure.
It's AMAZING INCREDIBLE !!!!

I had a wonderful experience ordering the Darkfin Power Gloves! Through the whole process I was very impressed with the company and staff members. I received a kind email explaining the international shipping options, suggestions, and I even got a voucher! I really liked having emails updating me on my order and where it was. I had no problems at all and I look forward to testing out the gloves. I will definitely look to your website again in the future. Many thanks for all your help and awesome products!

I use these surfing. They really do fit perfectly. So much more added paddling power and doesnt restrict any movement of the fingers.

Super awesome!!!

Jette V. on May 12th 2018
I wasnt sure what to think about the gloves when i first saw them on the internet. I wanted to use them for surfing. A year ago I had surgery in my shoulder so I had trouble with paddling whenever I surfed. I needed to build up some muscles as well. I bought the normal Darkfin glove and also the thermo ones. They fit perfectly and they feel good to have on. You don't really think too much about that you are wearing them. I was worried about whether it was possible to grab the rails on the surfboard, but no problem there. I went to try them and I actually caught multiple waves easily. Of course it's hard for the shoulder still, cause I need to build up the muscles again. Before I was working out every time I was paddling but without catching many waves -now the workout is more effective because of the resistance in the water is bigger when wearing the gloves and I catch waves so I also have fun. These gloves are super super awesome!

The Best

Suz on May 12th 2018
Have used Darkfin gloves for years. These are, by far, the best on the market for design, flexibility, paddling power & the ability to do other stuff while still wearing the gloves (putting on the leash, writing, eating, whatever).

Awesome Accessory for Diving

Michael T. on May 12th 2018
2nd pair I've bought - I bought mine 5 years ago and still use them. The 2nd pair was for my girlfriend who can now make me look like an amateur when she uses them.

Fits like a glove

Ty Parker on May 11th 2018
They're a little hard to get on at first but I use some dish soap and they slide right on. I used the sizing chart to get medium large and it's spot on. Once they're on they fit perfectly. I was using them to make swimming laps more of a resistance exercise instead of just an aerobic one and it definitely seems to work. I seem to swim a lot faster too, so I'm sure they work great for snorkeling. I'll take them to the Bahamas and see if I can get lobster from a little deeper than everyone else.

Great gloves

Steven S. on May 11th 2018
I am really enjoying these gloves. They are tight but talcum powder helps in putting them on. The gloves feel very secure while paddling (not sliding around), and the tackiness they have helps in gripping my surfboard while going under waves. I am looking forward to using them this Winter when the swells increase in size.

Timothy M. on May 11th 2018
Second time buying this. Product works very well and does exactly what it is designed to do. I usually appreciate these the most when I need to get out of the way of the next set wave and wouldn't get the traction in the aerated water after a falling or getting stuck inside. Shipping was quick too.
