Recommend me your best swimming goggles?
9

whotookthesellotape · 04/11/2018 10:16

I'm an indoor lengths swimmer and have never cracked the right goggles.
They either leak or are too tight leaving rings that last for hours.
Is there a holy grail of goggles?
Budget up to £20ish

Not on that budget, I'll wager.
I've had to spend a fortune to find ones that seem to reliably suit me -- and they still leave rings on my face, soz.
The ones I get on with are Predator Flex. Aquasphere have great fasteners but I can't keep them from leaking; Vista fit my son perfectly, though (go figure).
I notice the super elite wear their competition ones only the absolutely minimal time, so they must be uncomfy goggles. Seems like even elites have to make compromises in performance, too.

Zoggs predator flex are the business. But you'll struggle to find them for £20

As a scuba diver, you need to try them yourself. They're so reliant on head shape that you can't do anything with another person's recommendation off the internet.

Someone from a swim club who you've checked that you're the same fit, sure.

They shouldn't need to be tight to work, though.

Ive always had aquasphere ladies but recently switched to view women’s ones and found them bit better. They are £19 mark though. www.proswimwear.co.uk/view-ladies-selene-mirrored-lavender-pink.html I’ve got blue not lavender ones.

LOL...they go a bit OTT with the "designed for women" bit.
I read on to find that the difference is in the distance between our eyes and that we need a more 'relaxed' fit across the nose. I am glad you got blue. The pink are a nice colour, but not really what I'd use for swimming.
Can you let us know how you get on?

I’ve been swimming in the View ones the last 3mths, still get red ring eyes but I like them so far seem to be lasting better than the Aquasphere ones as the quality of those was getting a bit hit n miss as the seals kept going after a few weeks, which for a £20 pair of goggles I wasn’t impressed.
