Re: Swimming Goggle Blues

try diving masks? It's bigger and more comfortable than swimming goggles. Plus the larger lenses won't be as distracting. You can get anti-fog paste(or use spit, but needs repeated applications).

Find a quality mask with purge valve, silicon/neoprene straps(like Ocean Masters). You can blow out(purge) the water that gets in by blowing(thru ur nose) into the mask. Also to get a tight fit on your face, with the mask on, breath thru ur nose and create a suction, then tighten or readjust the straps. I often readjust the straps once I'm under water.

another advantage of a diving mask is some of them can be used with perscription lenses, if you have the need.
