Darkfin Power Gloves


Current stock: 0

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!

I like the way your gloves float

I like the way your gloves float. Your competitors are using pure silicone in various models don’t seem to think it’s important that things should float when you’re swimming with them. I also love the way the glove holds my hand in the correct position an orientation of the fingers spread with no real effort and still are flexible enough that I can close my hand if I wish to. I look forward to Snorkeling with them and seeing how well they were because my Olympus TG six underwater camera." Dave Shepp

My Darkfin gloves give me the power to handle stronger currents with confidence and ease

I was given these as a gift for a trip to Maui several years ago. I was skeptical at first, but that changed immediately. These gloves give you a dramatic increase in the power from your arms as you're in the water. This accomplished two things. First, safety. I love swimming in the ocean, in Maui. South Maui to be exact. Big waves, lots of fun, but unpredictable rip currents, and these will occur suddenly. My Darkfin gloves give me the power to handle stronger currents with confidence and ease. I work less, and get far more power with each stroke. I've gone diving with them, and they give my arms almost as much power as my legs do with my flippers. Second, pure fun. These change how you move in the water. In salt water, it becomes possible (for me, anyway) for me to "sit" in the water, move my arms back and forth at a slight angle, and they willprovide enough propulsion to stay on top of the water. Moving through the water, and changing directions is a breeze, and you begin to feel like a fish might. I LOVE these gloves, I won't go in the ocean without them anymore, and have bought them as gifts for others. I'm on my 3rd pair now. One note, neoprene will begin to break down after several years, but that's a fact of life, and is a quirk of the neoprene itself. Store them by putting baby powder, or talc powder in them, along with a paper towel to prevent sticking. And while not necessary, the silicone spray helps a lot if they're not already wet. You won't regret buying these.
