        These are great, fast, easy to use and the best accessory you can add to your fins. I am in and out of the water much faster than my buddies. Grab a pair. You won't regret it.

        Comments about Mares Bungee Fin Straps, Pair:

        Easy slip on, making it my favourite type of strap so far. Firm hold for fins. But not too tight it hurts. However mine turned grey/white even before i dove with it for the first time. Like a layer had formed on it. Washing it with mild soap took away a bit of that. But not entirely! So it is not a matter of dust sticking to it. Specially since i am meticulous about such things when it comes to storing my gear. Not sure if I'm missing something. Perhaps it requires certain care? Doesn't take away from its functionality though. Just a bit annoying that's all.

            Easy to install. First use or two I had some discomfort across the top of the foot as if the strap was too tight but by the third dive there was no discomfort. Makes donning and doffing fins very easy.

              Comments about Mares Bungee Fin Straps, Pair:

              These straps came with a pair of Mares Power Plana fins that I purchased last year. Usually install spring straps on my fins, but liked these enough that I ordered another set for a pair of Mares Super Channel fins that I have. Functional and easy to use, plus a little liter than spring straps. The straps are also quite streamlined to the fin which lessens the chance of entanglement with guidelines inside the caves and cenotes that I normally dive. Only time will tell as to how durable they are as compared to spring straps; but from my experience with them so far, I would have to say these straps are well made, easy to install, and very functional. Can definitely recommend. Hope this helps -- Safe Diving

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              WILLIAM G  purchased to make donning and doffing fins easier, I shore dive New England and entries can sometimes be a challenge. these bungees help eliminate buckle failures and make life easier.
              Kendell N  I have avanti quarto regular fins wear size 9 boot ,what size strap do I need ?
              LINDA H  Generally speaking, fin size equates to strap size -- so with a size 9 boot fitting into a "regular" sized fin; I would go with the regular sized strap. I have a set of Mares Power Plana regular sized fins with regular sized straps that fit quite well when wearing a size 9, 6.5 mm boot - no extensions on strap. Also have some Mares Super Channel fins (small size) that I wear a 2mm or 3mm tropical boot with. The small straps work on these fins ok, but to get the best fit, I have found it is better to use strap extenders or swap over to the regular sized straps. Remember, all sized straps do come with extenders which allow you to add approx. 1/2 to 3/4 inch in extra length if the straps feel too tight on your foot. Great product, very functional, and less weight than spring straps when travelling. Hope this helps, and safe diving!!
              victor w  is it possible to purchase an extra set of extenders for these straps?
              G M  I have 2 pr fins with the bungee straps also, so now have 4 extenders altogether. I wear a men's 11.5, and have XL Mares fins with the XL bungee. Running one extension on each strap, and getting by okay, but it would be better with 2 (one at each "buckle"). Planning on contacting Mares directly. Haven't found a dealer that carries just the extenders.
              victor w  I had to contact mares directly, they were happy to send me a second pair free of charge
