The DK Douglas Water Gloves are a great way to comfortably add upper body resistance to your aqua cardio routine.
The D.K. Douglas Water Gloves are designed to increase the water's resistance in order to enhance your water-based workout. The webbed gloves are made from premium grade neoprene, which displaces higher amounts of water without becoming heavy or bogged down. Pair the gloves with your normal aqua aerobics routine to better tone and strengthen your upper body and core. The webbed gloves are ideal for water aerobics fitness classes because their alternating back and palm color visually helps instructors, as well as students, ensure proper technique. The D.K. Douglas gloves perform similarly to the Water Gear Neoprene Fingerless Force Gloves and the Aqua Sphere Swim Gloves. Both pairs work hard to increase upper body resistance without sacrificing full range of hand motion.
Premium Fit and Feel
Designed to fit the natural curves of the hand, the D.K. Douglas Water Gloves are extremely comfortable to wear. They feature open-ended finger tips that allow users to easily grasp workout equipment while wearing the gloves. Plus, the open-ended finger design allows the gloves to accommodate different finger and fingernail lengths. The durable neoprene material is able to withstand high amounts of resistance with ease. While the material works hard against the water's density, it remains soft against your hands. The D.K. Douglas quality design can also be found in their unique Wet Cap. This alternative swim cap helps retain body heat while keeping your hair under control during water workouts.
The DK Douglas Gloves are available in a few different sizes in order to give users a customized fit. Available in Small/Medium (light purple with pink palms), Large (blue with light green palms), and Extra Large (blue with light green palms), there's a size for any and all aqua aerobics enthusiasts. Instead of featuring a zipper or Velcro closure, the D.K. Douglas gloves simply slip on and over the hand. They are easiest to put on when either the gloves and hands are completely wet, or when gloves and hands are completely dry.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers slipped on a pair of D.K. Douglas Water Gloves and hopped in the AquaGear pool. They loved the amount of resistance that these lightweight gloves were able to produce. Users thought that they could be used during aqua aerobics classes or while swimming laps. One thing that testers really liked about the products was that they were easy to get on and off. There were no zippers to zip or Velcro patches to close, all they had to do was slip them on and go. Plus, the open-ended finger design made it easy for the AquaGear testers to use the gloves while working with other training devices such as kickboards, water weights, and hand bells. And as a bonus, the webbed gloves also scored high because they were designed and manufactured right here in the USA.
The Bottom Line
The D.K. Douglas Water Gloves can easily add resistance to any exercise without hindering your hand's natural range of motion. Pick them up today and see how easily they fit into your current routine!
