2012 was an exciting year for us, our sales almost doubled from the previous year and mostly in part to several key products we introduced throughout 2012. Most of the products were born not from our own imaginations or ideals but those of our customers. It is very exciting to have such loyal fans of the Darkfin Gloves that they are bringing to us ideas of other products they would like to see made. Here is a running of what we introduced in 2012:
The Tan Skinfin Gloves and Bootees: Same great glove as Darkfin, just a different color!
- Tan Skinfin Gloves
Perhaps more popular than and often more requested was a cold water glove: We worked over a year to come up with a unique rubber dipping process that would provide more layers, yet not compromise the comfort and dexterity too much. Thus came the new Thermalfin Glove.
With the introduction of Thermalfin, the process we came up with spawned a whole new line of Heavy Duty products that are versions of the original products already introduced the past. With that comes our Heavy Duty Black O.P.S (Omni-Pupose-Sport) Glove. The uses for this glove are so universal, but great for anyone who does work or hobbies that require their hands to be wet or cold for periods of time and where dexterity and grip are a must. Fishermen, mechanics, windsurfers, gardners to name a few are the kind of people the Black O.P.S and Black O.P.S HD are made for.

For those that haven’t seen all of our products we also offer several apparel options such as our hoodies and rashguards.
This year we already introduced one more product and are working on many more. This is a simple silicone spray to use in easing the gloves on better, but also helps to condition the skin, prevent chaffing, and help provide protection to the gloves and bootees keeping them in better shape longer.
