I have been swimming for more than three decades now. Fifteen of those years were competitive swimming, and now I’m on a Master’s Team. I have swum a few meets in my Masters Career as well as several open water swims, but mainly I swim for fitness now.
In all of my years of swimming, I have never found a better set of goggles than the Aqua Sphere Kaiman Googles. I mean nothing else on the market even comes close to these little wonders. Seriously.
If you enjoy swimming often, you know that the comfort of your goggles is a big deal.
I can’t count the number of times I have adjusted my various goggles during my workout to make them more comfortable. Then only to get out of practice and notice the raccoon eyes and red mark on my nose from a sharp nose piece.
Those days are long gone now with my Aqua Spheres!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! :)
A few highlights of these goggles are the following:
- They do not leak!!
- The suction around the eyes is just right. I used to always have the raccoon look around my eyes with my old favorite goggles, and I just learned to live with it. About half hour after practice, the skin around my eyes would go back to normal. With these, you never have raccoon eyes, period. Amazing. :)
- You get to enjoy peripheral vision with these goggles. Typically, you would need to use really big scuba looking goggles to have such great peripheral vision. These are normal size goggles with peripheral – gotta love it!
- The nose piece is SO comfortable!! This is probably my favorite part of these goggles. I have never felt a more comfortable nose piece or one that even comes close. The rubber is so soft and conforms to your nose size. You will never have a red mark at the top of your nose again.
I know I may seem a little over the top about a pair of goggles, for goodness sake, but I’m seriously in love with my Aqua Spheres and I think all swimmers need to know about them. I purchased mine at SwimOutlet for only $19.99. I have not found a better price anywhere else. I would pay $40.00 for these goggles, they are that good.
Enjoy swimming with more comfort!
