Darkfin Fingerless Short Web
Darkfin Fingerless Short Web
These gloves are the best by far. Every single pair of gloves are handmade and made with 100% biodegradable, non toxic materials. These webbed gloves are designed to enhance your water sports experience. They are used by world surfing champions, guinness world record divers, whitewater river boarding, free divers, scuba enthusiasts, snorkelers, swimmers and kayakers all over the world. It’s nothing like you’ve ever used before.
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, nature 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 gloves. 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 moe 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 lost 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 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 the 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!
Note: All our products are handmade with plant based materials that are 100% biodegradable. Every batch might be slightly different than the next. Although we try to be very strict with our quality control, some defects might go unnoticed and could make it through to the consumer. Please email us regarding any concerns you might have regarding issues such as layer separation, boils, or pin holes in the product. To extend the life of our products store them in a Ziploc bag with some baby powder or silicone spray. Please also note that if you leave or forget your gloves under sunlight they will begin to decompose rapidly.
