Six Open-Water Goggles

The right mask or pair of goggles can mean the difference between a comfortable, confident and fast swim, and one that is none of those things

The trouble with many of the open-water masks onthe market is that they're simply too big for female faces. They ride up, slide about and leak because they're designed for blokes. Well, ladies, this is the mask for you. Aqua Sphere has brought out this female version of their Vista mask for 2010, with a design to suit women's heads.

The Vista Lady has a low profile to minimise drag and a large but extra-comfortable seal to prevent movement. We liked the look of the Vista: while it's definitely a mask, it's unobtrusive.

In fact, we reckon you could use it for pool swimming, in a pinch. It's really easy to adjust, even once it's on, and it comes in a hard case, which you could continue to use to protect the mask against knocks and scratches. The Vista also comes in a range of lens colours to suit different light conditions.
