If the Good Lord had wanted us to swim as efficiently as possible he would have given us heads like pilchards. And in the case of Lord Lloyd Webber he very nearly did. Sadly most humans need all the help they can get when it comes to swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, surfing and paddling. Enter, with a slightly amused gasp of amazement, Darkfin Gloves.
As you can see, these ultra-durable contoured latex gloves feature webbing between the fingers. Think of them as high tech flippers for your hands. Failing that think of them as rubber gloves that make you look like Abe Sapien from Hellboy. By increasing the surface area of your hands by up to 70% Darkfins create greater resistance, thus allowing you to propel yourself through the water faster and more efficiently. The difference is truly amazing.
Available in various sizes, Darkfin Gloves are great for doggie-paddling kids, keen swimmers, avid surfers and serious divers alike. And because the ludicrously hard-wearing latex is ultra thin, your manual dexterity will be unaffected. So go on, swim like a fish (ish).
