Well made gloves. I heeded the warnings and bought a size larger, glad I did.

Rating: Great for laps in the indoor pool
Reviewer: Michael Green  -  View all my reviews
I swim 72 free laps at a heated indoor pool every other day for general exercise. Magna Gloves really add to the "burn" rate on the stroke pull. The 2mm gloves are snug, recommend you get one size larger than you normally would. Gloves warm up and cool down fast so probably not good for cold water use. For indoor pool use theyre perfect! 5 stars!

These fine, high quality gloves are excellent for improving both speed and agility in the water. I found them to be a superb addition to my spearfishing accouttrements

Rating: H20 Magna Webbed Gloves
Reviewer: Craig Graulich
I am new to surfing and only get to go 2-3 times a year so figured I would try these gloves to see if they could help my paddling. Bought a pair for my wife as well. The Good: Can paddle much much much faster than before. I noticed I could keep up with my brothers who surf every other day. While you do expend more energy faster when you are paddling out or paddling into a wave the speed is fantastic. The Bad: The only negative I could say about the gloves is they can take on a little water which clearly makes the gloves a little heavier. On the whole, well well worth it. The "locals" my brothers in this case dont like them (never tried them) no differently than they dont liked anything other than hand shaped boards. If you are a beginner and dont have time to perfect your paddling stroke these are well worth it.

Reviewer: Joseph P.
I recently purchased these gloves to help paddle thru thicker surf as well as keep my hands warm into late surf season in the Northeast. Thus far I am very satisfied. The gloves fit well and work well in the New England surf. However, based upon the 2mm thickeness I dont expect to wear them t/o the winter. Nonetheless, for the price and the performance they are well worth it!

Reviewer: Kellie V.
These are absolutely wonderful for snorkeling or diving. They make it almost effortless to maneuver through almost all currents of water! They are also thin and flexible enough for you to be able to pick up or move objects or even operate an underwater camera. We have bought 3 pairs so far and recommend them to all our friends.

Rating: slightly smaller than previous style
Reviewer: Sharon B.
Last year I bought a pair of these that were made of a thinner material and thus were a bit more roomy. The manufacturer is now using a less flexible material that is a little thicker and the gloves fit more snugly than the previous style - same size but tighter fit. So you might want to order a size larger than you would normally.

Rating: gloves
Reviewer: jean maruejouls  -  View all my reviews
These gloves are a perfect fit, no changing these. Webbed gloves are perfect for the kind of exersise and lap swimming I do in my cold pool. gives me more resistance, which of course is the purpose of the webs.

Reviewer: Brigitte Krauss  -  View all my reviews
I am recovering from a knee operation and have not yet been able to use the gloves, but they are much heavier and stiffer and less like regular gloves that I had imagined and I only hope that indeed I shall be able to swim with them!

Rating: Unbelievable advantage
Reviewer: Joseph Phillips  -  View all my reviews
These dont feel like theyre doing much at first, but when you take them off youll wonder how you ever swam without them. I estimate they add 30% to the power of certain strokes. They also help strengthen the exact muscles you want toned for stronger strokes. I use them for everything- including surfing. Best 12 bucks ever.

Rating: S.C.U.B.A, Surfing or Swimming! These gloves work great!
Reviewer: Gregory Rock
I live on an island in the pacific and use these gloves 4-5 times a week! So far these gloves do what they are ment to do. I use them to paddle into waves, better control while S.C.U.B.A and strength training for Search and Rescue swimming. So far I find them very helpfull and the dexterity is great. These gloves will take some time to get use to due to the added resitance encoutered. Stick with it because it will be worth it!

Reviewer: nobody akers
you get a small thrust advantage, but, gloves are cold due to inproper fitand hands tire easy from being forced to remain spred fingered posture. i will not recommend them to anyone. the worst is shipping is worth more than the gloves so a return is pointless.

Rating: H2O webbed gloves
Reviewer: Michael A Kerwin  -  View all my reviews
I purchased a pair of these for myself, then the rest of my family. The gloves are 2 mm so they are not super warm. I body surf and snorkel in the Pacific Ocean. For swimming they are great. lots of power to catch the waves or swim down and grab a crab off the bottom. I do have some abrasions on my gloves already, but for the price they are very good.

Reviewer: Michael A Kerwin  -  View all my reviews
These gloves have fingertips in them. They are not open on the end. I use them to snorkel and body surf in the Pacific. I am pleased with the overall performance. They are not super warm being only 2 mm but do keep my hands warm for a couple of hours. The gloves are flexible enough for me to pick objects up off the bottom. I can really swim fast with these on. I do have some abraisions on these gloves already, but for the price they are good quality. I will buy another pair when these wear out. and I will buy them from scuba.com

I am a paraplegic Diver. I must use my hands and arms to propel myself under water. I have been using these all over the world on every dive. I will be ordering more as I keep using them up. I would really like to see some thicker gloves like 5 mm for colder waters. Thanks Jim
