About Speedo
In 1914, Speedo was founded in Australia by Alexander MacRae, a 22-year-old Scottish immigrant who arrived in the country in 1910. The company began when MacRae Hosiery manufacturers, established by Alexander in 1914, extended the manufacture of underwear to swimwear and became MacRae Knitting Mills. A naming competition was held by the staff in 1928 and won by a Captain Parsonson, who coined the slogan, "Speed on in your Speedos." In 1929, the first swimsuits were in production and it didn’t take long for Speedo to successfully establish itself. World War II caused the brand turn over 90% of it’s manufacturing to war production, providing the armed services with vital equipment such as mosquito nets. After the war, Speedo opened a new factory and was able to re-establish itself, due to increased demand for swimsuits. In 1951, Speedo Knitting Mills (Holdings) Ltd, was incorporated and became a publicly traded company on the Sydney Stock exchange.

Speedo hit the international stage in earnest, at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, and a few years later the brand grew on a more global scale. Export sales to the USA began and an international division was set up to monitor trade in New Zealand, Japan and South Africa. The expansion of the brand continued, and in 1976, Speedo was appointed as the official swimwear for the 1976 Montreal Olympics, where 52 out of 54 countries wore their swimsuits.

Speedo continues to make its mark in the pool and on the beach today. Many world class athletes who wear Speedo include U.S. phenomenon Michael Phelps, legendary Australian swimmer Grant Hackett, world record holder Kosuke Kitajima from Japan, and Holland’s Inge de Bruijn.

First of all, many thanks to all the other reviewers who mentioned that these run large. I wear a XL glove, so I was going to order this in XL. Very glad I didn't - the L size fits just fine, and now that I have one, it's clear the XL would have been too big. That tip from the other reviewers saved me some return postage - thanks!

In terms of the actual glove, it's great. Fits fine, and appears well made. Very secure velcro closure on the wrist.

I use mine for aqua aerobics and to add a "boost" to my swimming workouts. I've used the plastic hand paddle in the past - they are helpful in giving more resistance, but are rather awkward to use. These - if you'll forgive the inevitable pun - fit like a glove and don't get in the way. You can increase or decrease resistance by just expanding or closing your hand.

A word of caution - if you've never used hand paddles or webbed gloves before for exercise, go slow at first. You're putting a lot more strain on your muscles, especially the shoulders. Take it easy at first until you get a feel for the workout, then slowly increase duration and speed. A bit of care will prevent a lot of pain!

These definitely do what you would expect and are fairly comfortable (although you may have some sore shoulders the next day ;-). I wasn't sure if I should get the medium or the large and wish I had gone with the smaller size.

This is my 4th pair of aqua fitness gloves, my 2nd pair of this exact Speedo Aqua Fitness Glove. Allowing the fingers to protrude through the ends of the gloves is a great benefit. With other gloves, water builds up inside the glove and, if lycra-backed for example, the glove becomes like a big balloon after a short while.

These Speedo gloves allow the water to pass through the glove and out the finger-holes.

In addition, the material the gloves are made of is much sturdier than other gloves I have had. The palms hold up well as do the backs.

I recommend these gloves and will always use them in my water fitness exercises.

I'm serious about acqua aerobics and the upper body workout I can get by using these high-resistance water gloves. The unique velcro closure is a great improvement over other types which were a struggle to get on and off. Wish they had a "Medium" choice of size. They only make a S and a L. These gloves were a great find and the price was right.

Title says it all. I bought the X-Large (that's my normal glove size) but should have purchased the Large (the gloves stretch slightly).

Speedo Aqua Fit Training Swim Glovesare the best fit of training swim device for arms, as compared to other types I heve used before.
Material: durable, easy to put on. Adjust wonderful, smoothly, tight to your hands with closing a easy magic zip (providing you choose right size for your hands)
Mantainance: easy.I only water them with tap water after training and hold them in clothing line to dry.
Training: this is the only difficult part: they get really heavy as they get wet; plus the flaps between fingers; it makes me to push and pull harder. You feel the effort in your upper arms and shoulders but that is what you are looking for: is it not?
After you wear them for some couples of hundreds meters and you take them off and keep swimming you will understand what I am trying to explain.
Important: you maintain your regular stroke as they fit as a natural glove to your hands. It is not like paddles that are hard material and force you (without you notice) to change the way you should keep your hands, angles, elbow, forearm, and so on in each step of your stroke.
At the end, you really strengthen the muscles you need for a harder and more effective stroke.
I do really recomend this product.

I bought the speedo aqua gloves in December 09 and within 3 weeks the rubber started coming off around the thumb area. I notified Amazon.com and they were very helpful in replacing them for me. I have had the new pair about 3 weeks and they are also starting to wear in the thumb area. I swim laps for 1 hour a day and love how you can glide through the water with the gloves on but they just don't seem to hold up for any length of time.

All in all the gloves are acceptable. I don't know if it is just this pair, but the velcro on the left wrist is not positioned properly. Unless I make it tighter, in which case not all the velcro is overlapping, the wrist space is too large and water gets in a and makes a drag. The right wrist is fine. This is the 4th pair of gloves I've used. The best so far were by Zura, but I couldn't get the same model.
