The XT fin's blend of Monoprene™, an injection-molded thermoplastic elastomer material, offers excellent balance of power to work ratio, providing efficient finning in high flow or stiff currents. They are stiff, yet with plenty of snap. Plus they are lighter weight than traditional rubber fins meaning you are less likely to cramp with long distance swimming.

These fins come with stainless steel stretch spring heel fin straps, specifically designed for Dive Rite fins. The pliable spring-heel strap allows for quick donning/doffing. The spring design includes a comfort heel pad with convenience pull tab for ease of use. The convenience pull tab may be permanently removed if you prefer. The stainless steel buckle is a Dive Rite exclusive, and is guaranteed not to crack or break.

When selecting the size, keep in mind which style suit you will be diving -- wetsuit booties or a drysuit. The Extra Large size accommodates some oversize drysuit boots.

NOTICE: Dive Gear Express always ships unused new fins, but all fin materials have some characteristics that upon close inspection can make new fins appear aged or used. By design, all fin materials are soft regardless of brand, so handing during manufacturing and shipping through various points of the supply chain will inevitably cause the appearance of some minor cosmetic scuffs. Some fin materials, especially rubber, also contain a mold release agent that exhibits a gradual "blooming" of a haze on the surface of the fin as it dries following manufacturing, giving the appearance of oxidation and aging. If the cosmetics are bothersome then they can be improved by scrubbing the surface with ordinary soap, water and a cloth.

    Although they are stiff for the average diver, they are extremely powerful and make the kicks used in tech diving nearly effortless.

What Size Fins Do I Need?

Unlike shoes, the question is difficult to answer with fins because a 'shoe' size is only part of the answer. The brand and type of neoprene bootie you wear, particularly if you wear heavy soled or rock boots, will have as much effect on the selection of fin foot pocket as the shoe size. Some people, especially those with high arches, prefer a loose fit in their fin and others prefer a snug fit. Fitting drysuit boots in the very large sizes is especially problematic.

There is no size standardization between brands of fins (or even between different models from the same brand) and so you cannot assume that a size in one brand of fin is the same dimensions as the size in another brand; even when the designs look very similar. Taking some actual measurements of your boot while on your foot and comparing to our foot pocket dimension charts will help determine the size selection for your desired fit.

Determine your correct size before you order! If you are not certain about your fin size then our recommendation is not to order until you can obtain that information. While Dive Gear Express will accept fins for return, fins do not qualify for a free prepaid return label. You will be responsible for return shipping costs. Return shipping costs on fins can be expensive (especially from an International location) because fins are a relatively low priced item that has a high 'dimensional weight'. Your complete satisfaction is our goal, so please consider carefully before purchase.
