Goggle help needed!

Hi, I am just starting to train for triathlons and need to work on my swimming. I have just bought myself some Nike goggles and I was very impressed with them until I just looked in the mirror 2 hours after my swim, I look terrible! like I have been punched in my both my eyes!! Can anyone give me some advice, I don't think I had them too tight, although I will loosen them tomorrow. Can anyone recommend a good make? Thanks.
Have the same problems with my goggles. Been doing duathlon and triathlon for about 2 years alongside running. Like you, swimming is my weakness and I have tried 3 pairs of googles - all of 'em make me look like I haven't been to sleep for 3 weeks and have been sparring with Rocky most of my life!
I keep wondering if I should get a set of those that cover more of your face that I think are designed more for open water. Have you got any more info since you posted this thread?
Learn to embrace "goggle-eyes" as a badge of honor! Think of it sort of like when you brush up against your chain and get the chain's imprint on your calf (some people like this image so much that they get a permanent tattoo of it!).
Yes, Seal Masks will not give you raccoon eyes, and neither will some of the soft Barracuda goggles. For me, though, there is always some leakage with these, so I go with the ones - Zoggs - that are leak-proof on my face, and the trade-off is completely worth it.
Love and leak-free swimming!
Goggles are a constant difficulty - just when you find a pair that fit and don't leak, they change the design or the materials and you have to go on the hunt again.
Buy them from Wiggle, so that if they don't suit you, you can send them back again?
suggest you opt to camouflage the rings by purchasing a nice pair of Oakleys to hide the imprints behind.They are both practical and fashionable.
That way,you can ease yourself into the way of the triathletes money flow problems by spending £150,to sort out a problem caused by,a £5.00 item.
