Thanks for this thread. My Aquaspheres didn't give me the love yesterday at St Pete, so, now many options....Nootca seems an option as I have a very narrow and small face, so hard to really fit the goggles...
After trying all the brand names and high tech lens, TYR Special Ops is my choice. Polarized, great colors and most importantly they have a wide, soft seal around the eye. The smaller race googles always dig into my eye lids and are very uncomfortable after a long swim. While the TYR Special Ops provide exceptional comfort and good seal with the added bonus of polarized lens and awesome colors. I do use a google case as they are prone to breaking at the nose bridge. If you care for these googles, they will care for you. and they dont break the bank at $25.
I love this discussion. I'm partial to the Speedo Air Seal Tri Swim goggle.
They're hands down the most comfortable I've ever worn, and I swim with contact lenses so the fit is crucial. The only caveat is the annoying strap. It becomes very slippery when wet and it has a rather loose fastener so it tends to come undone at the slightest provocation. However, I just replace it with a cheap bungee strap and then it's good to go. I don't seem to find them on SwimOutlet anymore but they're available from Amazon.
