I got this pair for my wife and she hasn't used them much as compared to the similar pair for men which I have used extensively. I have listed what she has told me and what I felt with my own pair
Exact to size.
Good built quality
Very hard tips which is suitable for snorkeling.
No many logos or shiny paint jobs to attract unwanted attention. Fishes get attracted to colors.
Strapping mechanism is of good quality.
Could be lighter
Not the best for diving/noted significant increase in my Nitrox/O2 consumption when I used these fins for about 25+ dives.
Also they are very stiff and have no real holes for smooth gliding underwater and also the stiffness underwater makes you work harder = less dive time = more oxygen consumption.
As compared to the mask for men this one fit my girlfriend perfectly and she has had no issues with it so far but she has used it only for about 4 dives which is not enough for a conclusion. But my men's mask leaked after 25 or so dives.
All in all a good set for casual snorkelers but I would recommend doing more research before you buy them.
Below is a general guide I made from my lay man experiences hope it helps!!!!
GUIDE TO BUYING FINS
There are significant but minor difference in fins for diving and snorkeling and one should keep them in mind to have best overall experience and although they should be different but not all can afford different sets for both activities so way in which activity you do more and go for the ones that suits your needs the best.
I wanted to let the new divers know some basic tips from my experience to help choose you the right fins for the right conditions. I wasn't aware of these facts when I got my first pair and ended up with fins that were more for snorkeling than diving. I have listed out some conditions below and the type of fins you should be looking for and at the end I have put in some Pros and Cons for this particular set of fins which seems fantastic by the way.
Snorkeling Fins (Warm waters with moderate surface currents)
1) Should be slightly stiffer (Material Strength) than the diving fins as at the surface there is much more tension and roughness in water and hence you need to cut through the water to swim smoothly.
2) Should not have many holes as you need all the energy you put in to thrust forward as you usually only move in one direction horizontally most of the time when you snorkel.
3) If your fins are too soft you would end up using more energy over a long period and cover less distance overall.
4)Avoid fins that are designed to be worn with diving shoes(both low cut <ASIN: B007JNUOSE> and tall <ASIN: B000JWY49C>) and prefer the full foot design <ASIN: B003YSWNKU> over the over the open heel one <ASIN: B001N4PARA> .
Good example of an open heel design: <ASIN: B000M5Y3U6> ,and the full foot design is something where you slide your whole foot in without a securing strap etc.
Example: <ASIN: B0014F8LX8>
5) For protection with full foot design for snorkeling you can use dive socks <ASIN: B003JPEDVU> which are lighter and cheaper than the dive boots. I would use the Akona 2mm socks or any other similar ones.
Having pointed out some basic differences keep in mind that both designs are used interchangeably for both diving and snorkeling and one may have a preference and its best to try both out during dives with rentals before you actually buy a pair. Most professional divers whom I have met usually prefer softer fins for diving.
The link below is an good examples of snorkeling fins.
Diving fins (Warm waters with moderate underwater currents)
1) Should be the opposite of snorkeling fins mentioned above, mainly should be a touch softer as you would be underwater and there is usually uniform tension at a particular depth level. Also as you would notice that the fins on most fishes are flexible and that is what we want in our fins. We want to act and swim like fishes to be effective in energy conservation.
2) Should have some holes in the fins to reduce tension and improve over all glide underwater.
3) Underwater you want to maneuver over different reefs, for example you don't want brute force with stiff fins rather you want to glide and be able to change direction comfortable and smoothly just like fish and at the same time be able to swim further and fasted with less effort and low O2 consumption.
4) Prefer open heel design if you wish more protection as you can buy dive boots <ASIN: B005XXDINK> to go with them or whole foot according to your taste. From experience you really don't feel much weight difference between both designs but the open heel with boots usually offer better protection and confidence.
5) Usually the open heel design is very easy to take off when it's time to get back on the boat after a dive as a simple click unlocks them. The whole foot design takes more energy to take off if you choose or like a tighter more secure fit.
All in all the word is stiff on surface and soft underwater.
The link below is a good example of fins for scuba diving.
Be sure to try both designs out before you buy a pair.
Be sure to check the flexibility of all fins you buy so you know where they stand.
Keep in mind more expensive fins have no practical value over fins in the range of 50-120 USD as they would only have more cooler looking designs and nothing more.
I am not a true expert but I hope this helps as I only do diving as a hobby. Basically I learned some of the stuff by hit and trial and really the hard way so I though this could help some folks. Anyways best of luck guys (My XP includes MSD cert. and 5 years XP
