Seeing that many of you whom have landed on my blog to get to know Grand Bahama Island more, may also be interested in particular items and snorkel/dive products.
I bought the Zeagle Teleoz EZ Travel Fins a few months ago, and warm weather finally permitted me to putting them to use!
Now for those of you whom may of heard about the fins being horrible, do note that the ones I am reviewing are the newly designed fins, with improvements!
The fins are unique, and unlike any other, as they have a soft sandal like bootie bolted down to the thin blade of the fin. The open toe design protects you from less cramping in the water. The thin design and lack of side rail should not deter you from purchasing them, because they really provide a ton of speed in the water.
They do float, and I would primarily recommend them for snorkeling, due to this fact. Some may feel a little bit of a pull at their legs while diving deep water, however for me, I did not feel any pull, and they worked like a charm for what I needed them for, which is surface snorkeling. While in the water I was also able to push myself down into further depths without a problem.
The straps are superb, and allowed me to easily adjust them as I wanted.
I have a size 8.5 shoe, and bought the medium sized fins. They easily adjusted to my foot, and were very very comfortable. My boyfriend who is in a size 11, was also able to adjust the straps and wear the fins as well, so the medium size in my opinion is very universal as far as sizing goes.
The lightweight thin size allows me to tote them along with ease, and frankly I couldn't be happier with them.
For casual snorkeling, I recommend the Zeagle Teleoz EZ Travel Fins for sure.
