Aquasphere Swim Goggle review
I have had a few excellent open water swims now and have been able to properly test out my Aquasphere Vista Smoke Lens and Clear Lens goggles. This trip has required swimming and boat travel between the Greek islands; with all the traveling and all the sand on the beaches it is terrific to have the hard storage case to store my goggles in. The visibility is terrific, nothing would be more annoying than having damaged goggles, the hard storage case protects them well and stops the lens becoming scratched.
They are a big goggle, I would describe them as something like a mini diving mask. You need to be careful if wearing a swim cap as the cap can easily get caught under the top of the goggle, this will cause the goggle to leak – get a swim buddy to check the goggle fit before starting the swim. The Smoke Lens has been superb during the intense daylight, the Clear Lens works well at dawn and dusk. The goggles certainly create drag therefore I would not recommend them for serious swim racing, but in my example for swimming around the Greek islands where the water visibility is superb or for open water swimming where speed is not the main factor Aquasphere Vistas are a sound purchase. I suggest checking out Wiggle/Amazon or a similar online shopping website for a price comparison. Happy swimming, Dan
