What’s so cool about them?
The beauty of DragSox is in their simplicity and effectiveness. They add significant amount of resistance while being completely noninvasive.

Are DragSox similar to parachute?
They are similar only in the way that both create resistance. Swimming with parachute, however, is extremely annoying because you’re always kicking the strap. This is a common complaint. We, for once, have never met a swimmer who wouldn’t complain about parachute (and we know a lot of swimmers!). In fact, this dislike of swimming with a parachute was one of the reasons why we invented DragSox. (here is a related post: http://aquavolo.com/journal/article/2011/01/swimming-parachute-vs-dragsox)
Are DragSox similar to fins?
No. They are the opposite of fins. Please read this post for more information:

What do you really think about DragSox?
DragSox is the best power training device on the market for swimmers! Seriously, as swimmers, we have tried all kinds of power training gear and none of it is as effective and fun to use as DragSox. We have been training with DragSox for a while now but still, every time we do a workout with them, we get an unbelievable sense of satisfaction!
