VORGEE VORTEC CLEAR

220 Triathlon Magazine - - POOL SWIM GOGGLES -

£18 Vorgee’s Vortech gog­gles are also avail­able with po­larised or tinted lenses, but the ones here are to­tally clear for in­door pool use. It means you get no glare re­duc­tion at all, which is fine for pools with no nat­u­ral light, but even in our gym pool that’s po­si­tioned next to full length glass, we found our­selves want­ing some glare pro­tec­tion and a darker lens. Away from this, the ac­tual fit and build qual­ity of the Vortech gog­gles is im­pres­sive, with a split strap and but­tons at the side to tighten or loosen them, cou­pled with a one-piece, flex­i­ble nose bridge that’ll work for most swim­mers. They also come in nar­row fit or max sizes, so it’s worth try­ing some out be­fore you buy. Over­all this is a solid training gog­gle, but we’d go for the tinted ver­sions in the ma­jor­ity of cases (and we just think that tinted lenses look bet­ter!). vorgee.com

VER­DICT WE PRE­FER THE TINTED VER­SIONS, BUT THESE ARE FINE AND CHEAP FOR GLOOMY IN­DOOR POOLS
