Rating: Nice fin but maybe not for me
Reviewer: Sam J.  -  View all my reviews
Let me start by saying Im new to diving and going to through trial and error despite suggestions from others. For me these fins are slightly small in the foot opening but that is with 5mm booties. In addition to that the flex they have is huge. Very easy to kick with but almost too much flex for what I desire. If your legs are not strong these would be ideal, if you kick harder it feels as if you go nowhere fast.

Questions and Answers for Mares X-Stream Adjustable Strap Fins:


  • kirk:

    I was recommended to get a regular for the avante quattro. I wear 10.5 shoes. Would this hold true for any of there fins, such as the x-streams?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes, sizing should be the same for this Mares fin.

  • Rashidi:

    Hi, Im wearing 41 shoe size(Europe). Can u help me to reccomend the Fin size and also boot size. Thanks.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    41 is 10-1/2 is US sizing so 11 both in the boot and fin.

  • peter:

    there are no customer reviews for this product so its hard to judge value. how much better are these than the "average fin" (around $80) and is it money well spent?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    They are a very high quality fin, but when it comes to comparing one over another it all boils down to personal opinion. The best we can offer you is that they are a very high quality product that compares to every top of the line manufacturer's product.

  • Jeffrey:

    Do you have the pink with white fin for this model?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    For more information on inventory levels and colors please contact our instructors at 800-34SCUBA or info@scuba.com

  • FRANK:

    So the last time I got fins the Scuba certified Instructor stated the size I should buy and when they came in they were no were near fitting me would like to try this on open toe fins. I have Waterproof MED/LARGE boots what size should I order for fins. This fin in particular.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Frank, you are going to want to order the size fin in the size of your boot (or size range) of your boot.

  • Julie:

    with the Mares x stream fins, are boots required or optional.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Julie, they are required. With the adjustable strap fins the foot pocket is design for a boot.

  • dessy:

    Hi, im wearing 37 shoes (european size), and i want to buy this fin, which size should i choose?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    According to several shoe size conversion charts we found, that Eu. size equated into a size 5 US shoe size. The smallest size this fin is made in would be US 6-9. With your shoe size we'd recommend going with the smallest size.

  • Enrique:

    I were 10 1/2 tenis or shoes, so I have to pick 11 boots and shocks, but my question is: Which fins size I have to choose, 9-11 or 11-13?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Enrique, I would suggest going with the size 9-11 but if your boots are a hard sole boot then go with the size 11-13 since the hard sole takes up more space in the foot pocket.

  • howard:

    I have new question... Is there a color combo that might be less inviting to a predator since California seals are brown and blackish in color? Or would it look more like a great, tasty bait fish?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, Science has not been able to determine whether or not sharks can see colors. The ''Brightness'' of certain colors has also not been scientifically determined to be a shark attractant, but some scientists have called international orange (the color of life vests) "yum yum orange'' for sharks. Sharks have been prove to be attracted to shiny, flashy objects that give the appearance of light glinting off fish scales. Great whites feed on seals. Surfers in wet suits can resemble seals, but if sharks can see colors, we all know there are no red seals. So, unless you have a neon traction pad, you are probably in no jeopardy. If you wear a watch brushed metal or flat black are better choices than polished metal - gold or silver colored.

  • kyungah:

    I want red xs size. Can get you there?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    At the current time we only have these available in the SM,M/L, and XL sizes.

  • James:

    I have been diving Aqualung Hotshots and have generally found them to be pretty nice. I think I would like to try a larger fin. I was hoping for the Scuba.com istructors opinions as to Mares X-stream and the Mares Avanti Quattro and Avanti Quattro Plus.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, the x-streams are top of the line when it comes to mares fins. They did a lot of R&D in it''s development. I personally dive the basic Avanti Quattro''s and love the ABS buckles. All the fin you really need.

  • hoon:

    can you recommand pin size? woman(240mm,US 7), man(260mm, US8)

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Each fin has a listing of sizes in the "Options" drop down box for ordering size and color that equates to US shoe sizing. based on the info you have offered us both divers would wear the SM size fin.

  • David:

    How long are the SCUBA Snorkeling SWIM Mares X-Stream Fins Size EXTRA-LARGE Mans 10-13 need to fit in my pack Thanks

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    They measure approximately 28 inches in length.

  • ceren:

    i wanna be sure for something, i selected white/black one mares x-stream fins but image is still blue ones is there any problem?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, there definitely no problem. we only display one color on this item.

Product Details

Code: 410019
Colors: yl, bl, rd, tbk, wh, jpk
Sizes: S-R-XL
Blade: 37cm
Material: Thermoplastic Rubber/Technopolymers

Product Features

Channel Thrust: Soft longitudinal inserts allow a controlled deformation of the fin blade while kicking. This channel shape moves a greater amount of water resulting in more thrust for the same effort. Mares design is inspired by marine mammals.

Latest development in Channel Thrust is the Superchannel. The blade is designed with a large flexible central Superchannel propelling water-flow more effi ciently down the fin blade instead of letting it spill over the sides for optimal performance and minimal diver effort. The limiting factors in traditional open heel foot pockets are their weight and the “parachute effect”.

When finning, water gets into the space between the bootie and the foot pocket, creating drag like the air in a parachute. The perforations prevent this and have the additional benefit of making the foot pocket very soft and flexible. Furthermore, the suction effect which can make doffing of the fins cumbersome, is now forever a thing of the past.

OPB - Optimized Pivoting Blade: Allows the blade to maintain an optimal angle throughout the kicking cycle, whereas traditional fins achieve this only during a small portion of the cycle. OPB produces a constant thrust, which minimizes fatigue and produces fluid movement through the water.

Riddled Foot Pocket: The perforations prevent stagnating water flow from slowing you down. Eliminating this “parachute effect” you’ll slide faster through the water. Furthermore the openings eliminate any suction effect, making doffing easier.

Tri-Material Construction: 3 specific materials for maximum elasticity, high durability and resistance to aging. The result is superior performance in all diving conditions.

ABS Plus Buckles: These unique, patented buckles are the most simple and easy to use buckles available in the market. It only takes one quick movement to easily open or close the buckle, even when wearing thick neoprene gloves. The double button release prevents the buckle from accidentally opening.

Open Heel Foot Pockets: The open heel foot pocket is designed to accommodate dive boots with a sole, and to offer excellent adherence between the boot and the foot pocket in order to transfer all the force exerted by the leg to the blade, without sacrificing yield yet still ensuring superior comfort.

The lower section of the foot pocket is longer, in order to better transfer power to the blade and minimize the risk of cramping. In addition, the inside of the foot-pocket features internal ribbing to improve fit and stiffen the sole.
