As usual, another flawless transaction from Sierra Trading Post . They really know how to make a shopper feel at home, from the percentage off offers, to the rewards for giving reviews, to having the best items I am looking for every day! These fins are a perfect complement to my float tube, and after a full day on the lake yesterday, I can say there is not a single thing that I don't like about them. I was a little concerned with losing them due to buckle failure so I fashioned a DIY leash in case I ran into trouble. But the fins float if the buckles came loose and the buckles held strong all day long so I had no issues. Thanks Sierra Trading Post!

These are standard kick fins that ought to hold up well. The lacing system uses straps rather that shoe laces so will have to wait and see how well it works to keep the fins in place. This item would make a great back up set of flippers.

I have 4 pairs of float tube fins and these are by far the worst. They don't push much water and it is extremely frustrating to kick like crazy and barely move your tube.
The only advantage I see with these is that you can wear wading boots with them. Therefore, these fins might actually be OK for the relatively new hybrid pontoon boats that allow both kick fins and oars. Use the oars for rapid movement and the fins for trolling or maneuvering. You can float down river and take these off to wade fish.

Fins only work if you can keep them attached to your feet and can't be enjoyed if you're continually worried about them coming off. I don't really have much to say about the non-strap part of the fins. I guess they were ok. But I could tell from the moment I put the whole assembly on that the straps were going to be a problem and they definitely were. They couldn't be cinched firmly without the entire buckle coming apart and kept working themselves looser without even kicking hard. "Guaranteed to float in case you kick out of them." They need to replace the "in case" to "when". Fortunately, it was easy enough to push a standard backpacking strap with a much more secure one piece mechanism through the holes and use those instead. I'm thinking three stars is a fair deduction for having to modify the product to make it work.
