Initially a Brilliant Pair of Swim Goggles, then fogging occurs
on 28 July 2013
I do a fair bit of swimming, at least twice a week and spend over an hour in the pool on each visit and over the years I have gotten through a fair number of goggles, wear and tear and loss etc. I was currently on my umpteenth pair of Speedo's as they are always reliable, but I have tried other brands such as Maru, but these are my first Zoggs, and I think I may be a convert.
They claim a number of firsts with these. They have `curved lens technology' so that you retain peripheral vision, and yes they do and yes you can. They have photochromatic lens' so that they tint in strong light and have UV protection, and once again I agree it actually works. The seal is `softseal' which moulds to the contours of your face and yes they do but also they make a really water tight seal without having to overly tighten the head strap, so you stop noticing that you are wearing them after a while as they seem a bit effortless. This is combined with what they call a 4 `flexpoint' technology for a comfy fit, and as I just pointed out - yes it really does work. They are also dead easy to adjust, I actually broke a pair once that were awkward to adjust, so this is always welcomed.
Then the last one that being the claim that they are anti fog; well I have had three pairs claim the same thing and they have all let me down, some staying fog free for mere seconds, others lasting minutes. Well after two weeks plus of using these, they have not fogged up once. I even wore them in the steam room to see if they would cloud up, well the lenses fogged on the outside, but not on the inside, so all I can say is I am well impressed. The name is a bit on the' oh dear' side calling them `Predator' but hey what's in a name?
The colour design may not be to everybody's taste, but they do stand out and I think look rather good. They also come in a little case to avoid scratching in transit. All in all an excellent pair of swim goggles that should enhance your swimming experience for the better.
EDIT: After some 4 weeks plus of using these, yesterday they steamed or fogged up and I did nothing different whilst using them. I let them clear and they carried on doing it, so I have now taken off a star. I will continue to see how they perform and report back.
