Cool Open Water Swimming Shades

Cool Open Water Swimming Shades

If possible and if affordable, we recommend breaking in 4 (yes, four!) pair of excellent-fitting, comfortable goggles.

Two pairs should be lighter colors or transparent for night swimming or swimming in low visibility. Two pairs should be darker shades or polarized for swimming towards the sun’s glare or in bright daylight.

Each pair should be used frequently in workout, so they are ready to go during your solo swim, relay or race – perhaps prepared with a bit of spittle or baby shampoo or a tiny bit of water sloshing around in order to ensure the goggle lenses do not fog up.
