Swans Open Water Seven Polarised Goggles

The Open Water Seven from Swans features seven faces to the lens, an interesting feature that is designed to combat distortion in your peripheral vision. We tested them in training in the open water at the Serpentine in bright sunshine and also raced in them outdoors on a gloomy evening. The lenses coped well in different conditions, and we thought that they gave a wide field of vision with great clarity – like having your own personal Instagram filter! 

The nose bridge is flexible and tough and the goggles were simple to adjust and very comfortable to wear.
