    I was a former D1 swimmer and have used these goggles consistently for the past 10 years.  Compared to "Swedish" goggles, the thin layer of rubber provides a much better seal and additional comfort.

    Favorite goggles for everyday training... for me the fit around the eye is excellent and leaves minimal "goggle eye" marks afterwards.  Not the best when diving from the blocks as shape is not as streamlined and tend to flood, but otherwise they are great.

    Fit great with easy adjustment.  And the color is *red* -- the pool and sky become an amazing purple.

    Once adjusted these goggles fit nice.  They are similar as the sweedish goggles, but do not rub the bridge of the nose with the string or plastic.  However, they do tend to slip out of adjustment over time and have to be readjusted periodically, which takes some time.

    I really like them, I use them all the time, works fine at pool as in the sea (open wather).
    If you take care of them the anti fog is good.

    These are the only goggles that I buy now.  I swim once per week for two hours and I no longer get puffy eyes or headaches from ill fitting goggles.  These seal well, and fit my face perfectly.  The anti fog works great, and they are very comfortable.  They are cheaper than a lot of other style goggles, but they hold their value.  For me, these goggles last for about eight months.  For the price, I think that is a true bargain!

    for a person with smaller eye sockets, these goggles are perfect.  They are inexpensive, but durable.  I love the periferal vision I have in these as well.  They don''t fog, and the pink that I purchased is a lighter color, so easy to see in the water.  The silicone around the goggle adds comfort and better seal.  Once that wears out, the goggles are done though, instantly.  Nose strap usually wears out before the silicone seal, but they give you an extra nose piece with your purchase, so that''s covered.  The goggles last long enough to earn their keep for the price!

    First, just to make this clear... THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FOG PROOF GOGGLES, ALL GOGGLES WILL FOG... my overpriced Aqua Sphere K180s were good for about 3 sessions then fogged nonstop after that.

    I just ordered my third pair of Socket Rockets, I have the 2.0 Metallized in mirror fire; honestly they are a waste of money, as the lens coating is easily scratched off which has no effect on the vision They do have a blue tint, so it makes it difficult to see when they fog up at the pool I go to (explained a little better below). I have the regular in Socket Rocket in Red and really like them; the interior of the indoor pool I go to is blue with one of the walls being all window, so they make everything look purple and pink, and offer a nice contrast when they fog. However, it has been rainy/overcast a lot lately, so I just ordered a pair of clear to help improve vision as it is a little dark in the pool at times, and for $6 I couldn''t say no.

    As for the fit, at first they were a little weird as there isn''t really any padding on them; I did use the silicone strap from the K180s instead of the latex that comes with the Socket Rockets, but I used the latex strap on another pair of Socket Rockets and tied a not instead of using the plastic clip thingy. However, I use a piece of silicone for the nose piece because it stretches a little less than latex. To get the proper fit, don''t worry about the head strap at the beginning, get the lenses setup to your nose and eye sockets first; once that is done, just snug up the head strap, as it doesn''t need to be super tight, suction does most of the holding, but if you are getting leaking just tighten the head strap a little more.

    Now because they are about the size of your eye socket, and fit against the bone with very little padding, these are not for everyone, some people prefer the bigger tri goggles, and there is even a guy at my pool that wears a full dive mask; however, I can say that they are comfortable, they do not  pinch or move, and neither of my pairs have leaked or moved when it by someone, no have I had goggle marks on my face afterwards.
