Apeks RK3 review

The Apeks RK3 are my personal fins and I love them! I have used them on about 1,000 dives and they show no signs of exhaustion or tear.

They feature a traditional all-rubber design which is standard in military, rescue, and technical diving. Despite their sturdy material, they are super light and perfect for traveling.

Apeks RK3 Review Summary

The Apeks RK3 are some of the best fins ever made and are perfect for all divers. They feature a classic military-style design while being much lighter than some other full-rubber models on the market.

Our Apeks RK3 review

Below you find everything you need to know about the Apeks RK3, its features, specs and what we like, and don't like about it.

The Apeks RK3 fins come standard with stainless steel spring straps which make putting them on and off a breeze.

I have nothing bad to say about them, and you will love them for their flexibility and classic design.

Coldwater diver in lake

An absolute must for anyone diving in cold water or those who want the perfect combination of maneuverability and speed.

Last but not least, Apeks has released them in multiple colors and I am absolutely loving the black and white versions.


If you want to dive what the pros dive without the extra weight of other military-style fins, check out the Apeks RK3.
