Any gog­gle with ‘Eclipse’ in the name isn’t go­ing to be ideal in an in­door pool, and the Mis­sile Eclipse are de­scribed as ‘most suit­able for out­door swim­ming and bright con­di­tions’. What Vorgee fail to men­tion is that they’re ‘only’ suit­able for out­door con­di­tions, as even in an in­door pool with plenty of nat­u­ral light we might as well have been swim­ming with our eyes shut. To see if things would im­prove out­doors we waited for the sun­ni­est day Septem­ber in the UK could muster and rushed to our out­door gym pool for a train­ing ses­sion: and three very frus­trat­ing kilo­me­tres later it was the same story. The seal is ad­e­quate but the gas­kets are too round and we found they cre­ated ir­ri­ta­tion around the eye sock­ets. You get mul­ti­ple nose bridges in­cluded and the ad­just­ment is sim­ple, but sadly all this counts for noth­ing when you can’t see a thing. vorgee.com
