My daughters swim regularly (weekly, sometimes twice a week) in these Aqua sphere goggles and we rate them very highly. Yes the seal does go eventually but on average a pair lasts us a year - 18 months, during which time they've endured 2 weeks of heavy wear (daily) in chlorinated Spanish swimming pools and the salt water of the Mediterranean. I do try to rinse them afterwards but more often than not they're dropped into the depths of the swim bag until the next week. The enhanced vision is a real plus, as is the ease with which the wearer can adjust the strap themselves (aged 6 & 9) but my girls like these best because the tight seal doesn't stretch or pull the eye area, because these fit like a small mask they are much easier and more comfortable to wear.
We have tried the original Seal Kid and now these Seal Kid 2 - just picked these for the colour (a girly red when they arrived, slightly neon, pinkish red, not sure I'd pick for a boy) they are slightly bigger but both versions fit my 9 yr old well.
These always come with a sturdy plastic case, which is good as they do scratch if you're not careful.
