How to decide what swim goggles to purchase

As a swim shop owner and swim product expert, I am frequently asked by customers about the best swim goggles for their needs. With so many options available on the market, it can be overwhelming to make a decision.

Here are some key considerations to keep in mind when shopping for swim goggles:

Lens Material: The lens material of your goggles is important for durability and clarity. Look for goggles with lenses made of polycarbonate or other high-quality materials that are resistant to scratching and breaking.

UV Protection: Protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays is important, especially when you're spending a lot of time in the water. Look for goggles with 100% UV protection to keep your eyes safe.

Fit and Comfort: A comfortable fit is crucial when it comes to goggles, as you'll be wearing them for extended periods of time. Look for goggles with adjustable straps and nose bridges to get the perfect fit.

Anti-Fog Technology: No one likes dealing with fogged-up goggles, so it's worth investing in a pair that has anti-fog technology. This will help you see clearly and swim without any distractions.

Indoor/Outdoor Use: If you swim in both indoor and outdoor pools, you'll want goggles that can handle the different conditions. Look for goggles that are suitable for both environments, or consider purchasing separate pairs for each type of pool.

Additional Features: Some goggles come with additional features, such as low-light lenses or mirrored finishes. These can be helpful for certain types of swimming, such as open water or racing.

Warranty/Return Policy: It's always a good idea to look for a product with a good warranty or return policy in case you encounter any issues with your goggles. This will give you peace of mind and protect your investment. Here’s how we handle this at Reddiset.

Customer Reviews: Don't be afraid to do some research and read customer reviews before making a purchase. This can give you an idea of what other people think of the product and whether it's a good fit for your needs.

Price: Of course, price is always a consideration when shopping for swim goggles. Determine your budget and look for a product that offers good value for the price.

Brand Reputation: Finally, consider the reputation of the brand you're purchasing from. Look for well-known and trusted brands that have a proven track record of producing high-quality goggles.
