My OH is having real probs finding goggles that fit. She's bought 3 different sets of goggles, they all let in water. Do any of you female types have suggestions? Favored goggles? She's doing open water swimming, so something suitable. I'd be most grateful as we seem to be single-handed lay responsible for Zoggs' massive profits!

My best pair were more expensive Blue Seventy ones that I got at an event

I have a tiny head even for a lady - most of the time I have my goggles so tight I end up with red rims for hours but they hardly ever leak. If the do it's a minor adjustment.

I wear Zoggs Predator ... its horses for courses

Make sure she does not have any moisturiser on, this will effect the seal on goggles

I also used to use the aquasphere masks which I found very good, she may want to try one of those, if you can find your way to a shop then trying them on first should make life a lot easier

Try these...


I've used the AS brand for 6 years. Big fan! Another great product is this one.

I had this problem when I started and third time round bought some aqua sphere kayenne. No problems with them. 

Really don't think you'll know until your'e in the water though. Theyv'e all fitted me fine in a shop.

+1 for that. 'twas Meldy who gave me that tip and it worked a charm.

Now there's something we wouldn't have thought of. We have bought some Aquasphe Kayennes. Thanks everyone.

They're the ones I use and I have no problems with them.  
I don't like going without moisturiser, so I just wipe some toner round my eyes before I head to the pool.
