Swimming Goggles & Accessories : Fitting Swim Goggles


Hello, my name is Hector Inga, owner of Lane
Four Swim Shop in Austin Texas, and I’ve been asked to talk to you about, fitting swim goggles.
When you first come to our store and you’re looking for goggles and you don’t know what
goggles you’re looking for, we ask a couple of questions, first if you’re swimming indoors
or outdoors, to see if you need a clear lens or a darker lens, also what type of swimming
you’re going to do, if you’re going to compete or if you’re going to do just some recreational
swimming, if you’re looking for comfort or for just sleekness. So I wanted to show you
probably one of the best fitting, even though it is a mask, when you come here and we fit
you is that when we put the goggles on your face without the straps and we press them
on your face just to make sure that they create a gasket or a seal on your face, without the
straps they only need to stay there momentarily, they don’t have to stay there for a long time,
just as long as they make a little bit of a seal we can tell those will work for you
once you have the straps on. What I want to do is, I want to put this seal mask on without
the straps and you can tell how well these guys will stay on. As you can see, now I have
the mask on and I can hardly even pull it out of my face, this is probably not what
you’re going to find on the regular goggles, but this is something that this seal mask
is so well known for, that’s why it’s so well likes, as you can tell I can hardly pull it,
finally did. The other goggles they will not tend to stay quiet as well as a seal mask
would do and that’s not their intention either. The seal mask is used for open water, for
swimming in open water a lot, is probably something you really want. The other goggles
I’ll demonstrate a little bit. You just put them on you face, press them a little bit,
and as long as they create a little seal, a little gasket, a little bit of a vacuum,
and I can tell this one in one eye does real well and the other one not quite as well.
So we would probably put you through a couple test goggles and see which one would do best
for you. But the main thing is just to press them on your face without straps and to see
if they stay on your face just momentarily.
