Named after the fastest swim­mer on the ITU cir­cuit, the (Richard) Varga goggles from Huub come in mir­rored, smoke or clear lens op­tions (we tested the mir­rored ver­sion). They per­form well in­doors and out, de­flect­ing glare and pro­vid­ing good all-round vis­i­bil­ity. Huub’s ‘Ul­tra Low Pro­file’ claim is a touch bold as there are at least three other op­tions in this test that sit no­tice­ably flat­ter on the face but, to many swim­mers, this’ll be a help rather than a hin­drance. You get ad­just­ment clips on both parts of the split strap at the back and nu­mer­ous nose bridges for a per­son­alised fit. If you want a gog­gle with a more tra­di­tional flat frontage on the lens and some added pe­riph­eral vi­sion, the Varga is a solid op­tion, but you might want to choose the smoke lenses if you train in a gloomy pool as things can get quite dark in the mir­rored. hu­ub­de­
