    Just because crazy trønders use pink dishwashing gloves doesn't really mean it looks nice.
    My lovely blue camo jets were cheap, they were offered to me in a case of dire need: read cave awaits... fin broken. Per now the cover the "can you pass me my fins? Yes... the ugly blue ones...)
    Do I strike you as "pink"?

    Did I ever say it looked nice? Cool, sure. Not worried about innuendos, sure. Nice? No.

    Me, I use Showa gloves on a ring system. They're orange and used to complement the orange piping on my Waterproof suit rather nicely. With my current Ursuit, not so much. Oh well.

    They're pretty good. I used them for my dives in Roatan, Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Cabo San Lucas. Very lightweight. Short enough to stow in my luggage. Not as powerful as my Force Fins. When I travel, I bring my FF Adjustable bc they're compact. If you're used to wearing the Avanti Quattros, you'll notice the difference with the F2. Frogkicks are easy and so is maneuvering.

    Orange Showa gloves would be great to attract the Garibaldis in Catalina. My FF's are Blue, Red, and Black; Avanti Quattro are Yellow. I saw that the OMS Slipstreams come in Orange. I might have to sell my blacks one.

    2 1/2 pairs of fins.

    2 pair of Deep 6 Eddys. 1 for wet, 1 for dry (needed extra room for boots)

    1/2 pair of OMS Slipstreams. Gulf of Mexico ate the other one in the surf one day. Neptune was hungry that day...
