While training for my Triathalon one of the most useful pieces of kit had to be my goggles.
It might seem a bit strange, but when you are fighting your way through the water surrounded by what seems like hundreds of other swimmers… you want to be able to see where you are going.
I am in no way new to swimming, in fact throughout school I worked as a lifeguard. So it is probably fair to say I have spent a lot of time in the water and been through my fair share of googles. As they can really impact your experience and performance it is important to get a good pair. One of my favourites have to be the Kayenne by Aqua Sphere. Made for open water and pool swimmers, the wide-angle lenses are scratch/fog resistant and offer swimmers 180 degree peripheral vision. If you are planning on doing any swimming this summer make sure to check them out.
