Great Product

By PGH D.

I dove these this past Sunday and found them very comfortable, rigid, and easy to don and doff. The ease of use is what attracted me to them in the first place (I was tired of fighting the buckles). Well worth the money and they are very easy to attach to your fin.

 

Mares bungee fin straps

By BRIAN G.

I have been using Mares fins for years. There new bungee straps are a great improvement for my Avanti Quattro fins.

The Mares Bungee Fin Straps created as a smart alternative to the steel spring straps, this unique fin strap relegates adjusting a fin strap to a thing of the past. Bungees exceed steel springs in all aspects: Higher elastic properties, unaffected by sun, salt and chemical agents, lower weight and lower cost, and Mares has 40 years of experience using bungees as a key element in spear guns.

With the new Mares Bungee Strap donning and doffing a fin is a breeze and the comfort during the dive is guaranteed by the new ergonomic heel cover. The heel cover comes equipped with a large hand loop allowing easy pull-to-stretch the bungee strap effortlessly over the heel of your foot. Sold in pairs the Bungee Fin Strap is available in multiple sizes and is designed to fit all mares open heel fins.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

To small

Bought a new pair of Mares X-Stream fins and decided to replace the straps they came with with these bungee straps. The fins are a size small (my foot size is men's 9) and they fit fine with the straps they came with. I order the bungee straps in a size xs/s to match my fin size---WAY to small--they pressed my toes into the end of the fins. I put the extenders they came with on (one for each strap) which lengthened the straps by 5/8th of an inch but still way to small. Sent them back to exc...

Mares bungee fin straps

By BRIAN G.

I have been using Mares fins for years. There new bungee straps are a great improvement for my Avanti Quattro fins.

 

Did the trick

By derrick m.

from AURORA, IL, US

Needed to replace the straps on my wife's fins because she was having trouble with them slipping off her heels. These were shorter than the ones that came with them and perfectly alleviated the problem. She likes her fins MUCH better now.

 

More reliable than clip style straps

By William P.

from Berkeley, CA, US

I purchased the bungee design because they are more reliable than clip style straps that came with my original purchase. The clip release broke after about 50 dives. Additionally, the bungee design is easier to get into and out of while remaining secure on my foot.

 

Better than paying for a new set of fins.

By Samuel D.

Fairly simple to put on. Works great!Much better than buckles!! Cheaper than a new set of fins.

 

As easy as spring straps

By DANIEL Z.

from Catskills, NY, US

But lighter. And more adjustable. That said, you do need to get the right amount of tension for the fin/boot combination. Not too loose for obvious reason, but not too tight either or it will rub. I use standard straps to get an idea of what length works...as a starting point. Then set the bungee straps and try it out. You have to take it apart to loosen or tighten. Once set, you're good to go. Light and easy on, easy off.

Mares Bungee Fin Straps

By Joe d.

from Manchester, CT, US

I am just back from a trip to Bonaire where I used these straps for the first time on my 23 year old Quatros. The Bungee Straps were excellent.and are much more user friendly then the original style straps that I have been using. They are simple and there is no fiddling with tightening straps when you put the fins on or loosening them when you take them off. It is one easy simple motion for both entry and exit. A couple of points: -make sure you get the correct size as there is no adjustment -I do not know anythng about how these straps will wear over time as I used them for only one week. But for every dive in that week they were Excellent. I love them!

 

mares bungee fin straps

By RONALD B.

from Eureka, CA, US

I love them. I only wish I had bought them years ago. I've always had a problem removing my fins when trying to return to the boat, especially in rough seas, These straps stay put , yet their easy to pull off. When your inline to go up the latter, your first concern is handing off your camera. Second is to quickly remove your fins so you don't hold up the line. Also the wide support at the heal is very comfortable. I recommend them.

 

The Greatest Thing Since...

By Doug H.

from Richland, WA, US

I bought a pair of these in early June 2016. I mostly wanted them to make it easier to don and doff my Mares "Wave" open heel fins. I dive a dry suit and wear an overshoe on my feet. I also, unfortunately, have a right hand that doesn't work all that well after a "botched" surgery attempting to address both carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel in my right hand and arm. With the "stock" fin straps I found it particularly difficult to remove a fin(s) with that hand! That large loop in the middle of the Bungee Fin Strap coupled with the "bungeeness" (how's that for a word?) of the cord or strap itself did the trick in a very big way. It's now no trouble at all to install or remove my fins with either hand! And when making a beach dive, this was a BIG problem for me until I got a pair of these super fin straps! That and the fact that they're practically indestructible, I can easily say that I absolutely love these Bungee Fin Straps! (I'd use these "bad" hand or not--they're simply better than anything I've ever seen in fin straps--including the "spring" style straps. Thank You Mares!

 

So glad in bought these!

By Robgd13

Item was at my door in Canada in 3 days!

 

I would do it again...

By Jollyman

These straps are lightweight and fully functional. They take the hassle out of putting fins om and taking them off.

 

Convenience and speed of use

By Jorge I.

from Buenos Aires, CABA, AR

The Mares bungee straps bought them because I had met on the fins previously bought Mares Avanti Quatro Plus and coming home in this model. I was impressed by the ease of placing the fins and the speed with which he can take in water, no locks or latches, with excellent fit, bungee not loosened or tightened. As this gave me so well buy this pair of bungee to place on my veteran fins Mares Avanti Quatro ABS and so have both equal to fit perfectly, ease of use is impressive and very comfortable.
