Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Aeris Accel Scuba Fins Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Aeris Accel Scuba Fins Review Posted in: Below $100, Fins

The Accel is short, compact, and lightweight open-heel fin meant to serve as a travel fin. Each fin is less than 21 inches long and weighs in at 1 lb and 5 oz, so it certainly lives up to the billing in the easy-to-carry department. The fin is of the paddle with vents design, cast from a single piece of Monprene, giving it a good flexibility and solid performance as a water shovel. The straps are an odd one, being a piece of plastic that, after some custom adjustment, fits over a button on the fin. The system certainly seems crude compared to other open-heel strap systems, but thus far the consumer feedback has been universally positive, with only slight mention made of the straps. Scuba Diving named them a Best Buy for 2013.
